The Divine Office is not difficult to say if only there be put into the study of its various parts a little method and intelligent attention.
This book has been written principally to help ecclesiastical students to learn in a practical way, and in a brief time, how to say their Office correctly. It is hoped that those who carefully study its pages will find themselves thoroughly prepared, on the day of their ordination to Sub-deaconship, to take upon themselves the perpetual obligation of the Breviary.
In the concluding chapters of this work—under the heading of PRACTICAL THEORY—the subject of Titulars and Dedication is treated at length. Under this heading an amount of theory has been given which will be found useful not only on account of its direct bearing on the practical question under consideration, but also because by its study the whole composition of the Ordo itself will be better understood. These chapters, it is confidently believed, will be found helpful not only to students, but also to all priests attached to churches, who often experience some difficulty in arranging the Office of the octave of their Titulars.
