St. Benedict had it right when he said to his monks,  "Let us prefer nothing whatsoever to the Work of God(i.e . the Divine Office).

The Monastic Diurnal is a God-send. I pray it every single day.

Indeed it is beautiful. I never understood why people would not love the Breviary, but I suppose I've always had a sort if monastic temperament. 

 If you get a chance pick up the Lancelot Andrewes Press Matins so you get the full Breviary. Benedictine Matins is long but beautiful.  You always start with Ps 3 and 94 and you don't want to miss the lessons, especially at Advent.

Sounds up my alley, I'll have to look into it. I can concur with the monastic temperament, I just wish I had the monastic solitude to match it lol.
