Homage to the "Body" came courtesy of "Rainbow Body," a work by Christopher Theofanides, a contemporary composer affiliated with New York's Juilliard School and the Peabody Institute in Baltimore.

At dawn, the heavy front doors are unlocked. Soon the familiar rhythm comes to life in the administration building at Johns Hopkins Hospital. Voices on the security guard's radio echo in the quiet corridors. A woman's heels clack against the marble floor. Students cut through on their way to classes. Physicians hurry to surgery.It is here, at the intersection of six major hallways, underneath Hopkins' historic dome, that even the busiest people take a moment to pause in the presence of a towering statue of Christ.

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.
