Why Pray the Daily Office?
The Daily Office is the official prayer of the Church. Its order of prayers, praises, and readings proper to each season, day, and time of day serves to sanctify time. When you pray the Office you join the communion of saints who have recited these prayers daily for century upon century.
What is the "Anglican Use"?
Briefly, it is a provision for an "Anglican style" liturgy similar to the Book of Common Prayer as an ecclesiastically approved variant on the Roman Rite of the Catholic Church. The official text of the Anglican Use Daily Office is published in The Book of Divine Worship; this internet site is based on that text.
