Morning prayer

This morning at church the Lord's Supper was actually not celebrated for once. Instead there was a Remembrance Day service in accordance with Matins in the Book of Common Prayer. Matins, or Morning Prayer in the BCP, is an amalgam of the ancient offices of Matins and Lauds in the Liturgy of the Hours. It thus includes both the Te Deum (Matins) and the Benedictus, or Canticle of Zechariah from Luke 1:68-79 (Lauds), after the two readings.
