Fr. Neuhaus posts. The May 17, 2006, First Things blog has a post by the great man, one on the immigration issue (he liked the President's speech, but doubts that there is a "comprehensive" immigration policy within sight and sees the enforcement of our laws as of profound importance) and the other on the Liturgy of the Hours for priests and other faithful.

The Liturgy of the Hours is what non-Catholics would call "daily devotionals". Fr. Neuhaus believes that, because the use of this liturgy is obligatory among priests, priests pray more than Protestant ministers.

Fr. Neuhaus identifies a version of this liturgy that is accessible to laymen, a monthly periodical called The Magnificat. One may request a sample copy, and I did. You can also look at a pdf that gives the readings for a particular day.
