Nothing is to be put before
the love to Christ and the liturgical prayer.

(Rule of St. Benedict)

AsramScriptorium, when it is necessary, revises books and re-submit them to the Book Store with a higher version number. In such cases, opening (Apple) Books app, Apple notifies you that a new version of a given book is available for download. Unfortunatelly this does NOT happen in several countries: therefore, if you are interested in getting the latest version of any book, in the “Search” field (top-left) of Books app please type ‘AsramScriptorium’ and check whether the version number on the Book Store matches the version number of ‘your’ books at the bottom of its first page. Then, if necessary, take action as needed. Thank you for following AsramScriptotium.

The Monastic Liturgy of the Hours in Bangla.

The Monastic Liturgy of the Hours is the Prayer Book of Christian monks. Its translation was made from the original Latin and Greek sources.
The book contains all the parts necessary to perform the Liturgy in the five times of the liturgical year (Advent, Christmas, Lent, Easter and Ordinary time) and for the celebration of Saints. Therefore it contains the appropriate Invitatories, Hymns, Antiphones, Readings, Prayers etc. for Matins, Lauds, Prayer during the day, Vespers and Compline.
Since the Office of Matins supports a two-year cycle, the book contains twice as many readings as contained in the Roman Office; that is, 800 Bible-readings and 1050 Patristic readings.
