Orthodox Tidbits Service of the Hours (Part 2)
This Orthodox Tidbit will feature a series of articles on the Orthodox worship services known
as "Service of the Hours".
Part 2 is an explanation of the Daily Cycle. These articles are excerpted from 2 books by a
prolific author of several works on Orthodoxy, Father Anthony Coniaris: Daily Vitamins for Spiritual
Growth and Introducing The Orthodox Church; Its Faith and Life.
The Daily Cycle:
As the year and week are broken into cycles, so is each day.
The New Testament follows a system of telling time according to which the first hour of the day is hour one
after sunrise or 7 a.m. Hour two is eight a.m.. Hour three is 9 a.m., etc.
