Beautiful edition of a beautiful cycle of prayer. I am a new Catholic and started reading the LOTH online a few weeks ago. I decided to purchase the set of books and at first found it a bit complex to use. However, I have been doing the prayers for the last couple of days and found that I am starting to understand the structure of the books. I LOVE using a real book so that I can underline or make little notes in the margins. This set seems very well made and will likely last for many years. In just the few weeks of reading the prayers each day, I feel a great sense of peace and joy to be praying with the entire Church. Strongly recommend to ANY Christian who wants to order their day around prayer

The leather-bound Liturgy of Hours Set with gold leafing is well worth the price difference between the imitation-leather edition I had and my recently purchased leather edition I am very pleased.
