A Duty Proper to the Angels

'Saying the Divine Office is one of the most 
excellent actions in which we can be engaged, 
for we thus celebrate the divine praises,
a duty proper to the angels.  
Hence it should not be recited out of habit,
 but with our complete attention and devotion.'

St. Mary Magdalene de Pazzi
