Rev. Quigley has written an in depth description of the Breviary. It is an excellent text for college students or anyone else wanting to learn more about the church. Quigley believed that before ordination it is essential to spend a great deal of time on dogmatic and moral theology. Quigley states in his preface: "Certain subjects, such as liturgy, are always in danger of being shortened or of occupying a very small space in a college course. After ordination, priests find that these subjects are things of daily and hourly interest and importance. Who is it that does not know that the study of the Mass and the Missal, of the Breviary, its history and its contents are studies useful in his daily offering of sacrifice and praise?" When talking about his hopes for young students Quigley further states: "It may assist them to know and love the official prayers of the Church, and may help to form devout habits of recitation, so that, when the obligation of the daily office is imposed on them, they may recite it digne, attente et devote. The "texts and intentions" may be an aid to them, and to students in Holy Orders, in the great and glorious work of pious prayer."
