Almost everything traditional before Vatican II, like the Breviary, is so much more difficult and time consuming. Anyone who goes to the Tridentine Mass knows that it is so much harder to kneel in silence during Holy Mass and the same can be said for the altar boys. It is the same with the Breviary. At the beginning of Lent, I plunged into the Latin Breviary. Many priest I know told me to go slowly with maybe Lauds and Vespers. Many many times I have been tempted to return to the Liturgy of the Hours to save time.
In one week you pray all psalms. In the new liturgy of the hours you do them in a four week cycle.

It is easy to do because it is already organized for that day. It says the date and lists the hours: So starting with the app is a good way to begin. But sad to say it is not available right now because it is sold out till more are printed. See how much the Catholic Tradition is growing that they can not print enough liturgy books to keep up with the growth. I asked several priest to help me start with the actual printed Breviary. It is somewhat like the Liturgy of the Hours and that helps if you know it.

Then all the time I spend in front of the computer to write this blog. The longest office is Matins. It is said first off in the morning and takes me over an hour. Lauds and Prime are long too. It is an act of love to pray this Breviary. Being that it is in latin, makes it harder 1926 concentrate and understand. But I believe in catholic tradition, and so I have been making the sacrifice of praying this Breviary.
As I said before, all things traditional are way more difficult and longer. But it is worth it. The Holy Sacrifice of the Mass is the greatest thing a priest can do in his day. He offers it for his and the salvation of all. Then comes the Divine Office or Breviary.

I know that this is not too interesting to those who are not obliged to do the Breviary like priest and religious, but the information needs to get out to other priest. All over the world there are priest like myself who start saying the Tridentine Mass and from there begins the discovery of all the other Rites and prayers.
You begin to look at the Rite for Baptism. Bteviary look at the Rite for Blessing Holy Water. You look at the Breviary.

Finally we need to always keep in mind that prayer is the greatest thing we can do each day.
