This new edition of the Daily Office Book includes a selection of short Bible readings, which follow the same daily and weekly pattern as the psalms. The full text of the Common Worship Psalter is included in this edition. These are printed where they are designed to be read. The section called After the Office is now renamed Occasional Services as these should stand on their own and not just as a conclusion to the full Office. In addition, refrains have been omitted and the responsory shortened to a simple versicle and response. The editors have also simplified The Christian Year in two ways - major feasts of the Church are indicated in bold type in the Calendar but it is left to the user how to mark other festivals and commemorations. Thus the seasons have been integrated with the saintly holy days and things are therefore much less complicated.
