The Great 50 Days: The Daily Office from Easter to Pentecost
- Ideal for seekers who want to "try out" the discipline of daily morning and/or evening prayer.
- Everything needed to pray Morning and/or Evening Prayer during the Easter season - in a single volume: bible readings, prayers, psalms.
- Psalms and liturgical texts from the Book of Common Prayer.
- Bible readings in NRSV, highly respected and beautiful translation.
Like its companion volume, 40 Days, this book is intended to be an accessible, doable, toe-in-the-water introduction to the private recitation of the daily office. It will contain rite two Morning and Evening Prayer from the Book of Common Prayer, the Psalter as prescribed and edited for each day from Easter morning through the Day of Pentecost, the collects, and all bible readings (New Revised Standard Version) for the two-year lectionary cycle. The Prayer Book services of Order for Noonday and Compline (close of day) will also be included for readers who find those times more suitable for praying an office. Readings, prayers, and psalms will be included for the major holy days that often fall in Easter season, including the Annunciation (March 25) and St. Mark (April 25).
