Pray When He Prays, Hope When He Hopes

In reciting the divine Office we must take care that our affections accompany the sentiments contained in what we read. It is necessary, says St. Augustine: “We must pray when the Psalmist prays, sigh when he sighs, hope when he hopes.”

– St Alphonsus de Liguori, Dignity and Duties of the Priest
