Office of Readings QUESTION from Ken Savio on February 21, 2003 Dear Brother,
If OOR is said after Evening pray is the invitatory said? Ken
ANSWER by John-Paul Ignatius, OLSM on April 10, 2003 Dear Ken:
The Office of Readings (also known as Vigils) may be said at any time of the day.
The Invitatory, however, is said only at the beginning of the liturgical day. Thus if Vigils is prayer in the earning morning hours at the first prayer of the day, THEN the Invitatory is prayed. If Morning Prayer (Lauds) is the first prayer of the day and Vigils is prayed at some other time, then the Invitatory is prayer before Lauds.
