O Lord, open my lips And my mouth shall declare your praise. For centuries, monks have mouthed these words as they begin their daily regimen of prayer in the pre-dawn hours. The Liturgy of the Hours -- Psalms and prayers recited at set hours -- fixed the rhythm of their day, from rising to rest. Also called the Divine Office, the prayers have for the most part been the preserve of Roman Catholic priests, deacons, nuns and brothers. But the Office is being discovered by Catholic lay people, such as those who gather every day for Morning Prayer at St. Clement Mary Hofbauer parish in Rosedale, or for Evening Prayer at St. Benedict parish in Southwest Baltimore.

Office of Innocence, by Thomas Keneally. Doubleday. 352 pages. $25. Every year there are more books about World War II. The pace of production seems only to quicken, yet few do more than revisit the old cliches about times and places, hearts and minds. Novelist Thomas Keneally is a welcome exception to the rule of the over-familiar in this literary category. Particularly with his novel Schindler's List, he has demonstrated an ability to find new stories to tell of the war's impact on the souls of men and women.
