Update on the Liturgy of the Hours, Second Edition for Saturday in the 4th week of Ordinary Time or St. Blase, B & M or St. Ansgar, B or Blessed Virgin Mary

Dear Community,

Adoremus.org had published a fragment from the January 2022 Bishop’s Committee on Divine Worship Newsletter concerning the progress ICEL and USCCB made on the new edition of the Liturgy of the Hours. The text of the newsletter is summarized here, the full text can be accessed at Adoremus.org website.

ICEL has nearly finished its part of the work on the new edition of the Liturgy of the Hours. The USCCB should finalize the remaining non-Scriptural elements of the book in the coming year. The last piece to be completed will be the Scripture, and it is hoped that all the necessary votes of the body of bishops will have taken place by the end of 2023. Afterward, the various texts will be assembled and transmitted to the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments for confirmation. The publication process can only begin when that confirmation is received. Taking these factors into consideration, the current estimate is that printed books could be available in 2025. Further updates on the progress of the project will continue to be posted at USCCB.org.

Details about the progress on each section of the Liturgy of the Hours, Second Edition and further updates can be found at USCCB website.
