Hinge Hours For Ordinary Time is a meditation rendering of Psalms (147), Canticles (41), Sayings of Jesus, Scripture Readings on the Christian Life (56), and traditional songs from the public domain (56), arranged for the two "hinge hours" of Morning and Evening Prayer for the four-week cycle of Ordinary Time. Designed by a parish priest as a straightforward introduction to praying the Liturgy of the Hours, Hinge Hours For Ordinary Time can also be used for private prayer and meditation by veterans of the breviary. This meditation rendering follows consciously these four choices: 1. For the name Yhvh, or Yahweh, the Hebrew word Adonai (ah-duh-nih') meaning My Lord, is used. In several places the words El or Elyon or Elohim are retrieved, as is Sabaoth instead of Mighty or Hosts. 2. Following the Christian understanding of one God in the three persons of the Trinity, masculine pronouns for God are avoided, except when God is referred to as Father, or specific references to Jesus. 3. In an admittedly imperfect effort to pray the gospel as well as the psalms, the word "enemy" is most often rendered as "enmity." 4. Where people are referred to as evil, the emphasis is shifted to those who do evil, or ways that are evil or bad. There are problems with all four of these choices, and these would be reasons to not consider this compilation for public liturgy. Most of the antiphons are Sayings of Jesus drawn from Sunday Gospel readings: In the Sunday Lectionary, the Old Testament readings have connections with the Gospel reading, and the "responsorial psalm" is a "response" to the Old Testament reading. This means that on any given Sunday there is a relationship between the Gospel reading and the Psalm. The antiphons were chosen based on this relationship. Visit www.idjc.org.
