"Fas est clericis in sacris constitutis uti etiam Breviario Romano a B. Ioanne XXIII anno 1962 promulgato." Art. 9, § 3, Summorum Pontificum
The one means of continuing to live the graces of holy Mass throughout the day is prayer.
The one prayer of the Church which most powerfully flows from the Mass as a source and leads back to the Mass as a summit is the Breviarium Romanum or Liturgy of the Hours.
The praying of the entire Book of Psalms each week offers a profound well of spiritual waters from which the priest drinks to relieve his parched soul in a spiritually arid world, the antidote to the false promise of the mirage of material comfort and empty temporal distraction.
Oremus pro invicem.
