What is 'the Office'?

St Benedict describes the work of the monk as physical labour and prayer. At the heart of this prayer is singing the psalms. These 150 ancient prayers, which come to us through the Jewish faith, are to be recited every week by St Benedict’s disciples. This is our Office. We sing the psalms according to the plan laid down in the Holy Rule, and according to the times and seasons of the liturgical year.
