Wise words about our prayers, together and separated...
"The salutaion and response "The Lord be with you. And also with you." is traditionally not said when one prays the office alone but is replaced with "Lord hear my prayer. And let my cry come before you." But, as Peter Damian, reflecting Pauline doctrine, taught, if we who are many are one in Christ, each of us possess the whole. Indeed, the various members of the church of Christ being so united as to form a single body, the entire church may be regarded as mystically present in each individual. It is a useful reminder that no one, not even a hermit, prays alone" (xxvi).
The Daily Prayer of the Church, edited by Philip Pfatteicher, Lutheran University Press, 2005.
