I've been using the magnificat for years, like so many Catholics, clinging to it and praying mourning and evening prayer. Four months ago I decided to dust off my 35 year old copy of the Liturgy of the Hours and began praying morning and evening prayer. All I can say is the Divine Liturgy is an Awesome gift-a portal to heaven. My faith and understanding have grown immensely in this Year of Faith. I highly recommend the practice.
