New Liturgy of the Hours - in Africa

A new edition of the Liturgy of the hours using the old ICEL but NEW Revised Grail Psalms has been published. It has new feasts since the last American edition, as well as new Magnificat and Benedictus antiphons...which could be good or bad.

It is exciting that a new edition has been published which breaks the Divine Office publishing pseudo monopoly. It is available in the United States through that website.

While it is not technically approved for the United States, the parts have been approved by the Holy See and it uses texts approved in the United States. It also includes a Proper for African saints.

I wonder what hymns are in it...
