  1. Hi Everyone,

    Sorry for the short notice, but I only found about this a little while ago. Trent Horn’s new book “Persuasive Pro-Life” is available for free on Amazon. But only today, 1/24 until midnight EST, and only the Kindle edition. Use the link on the left of this web page so DO gets a cut. Just type in the title “Persuasive Pro-Life”. Here is the link in case you can’t see the link on the DO web page.

  2. Hi there,

    I wanted to first start off by saying that I really enjoy your website. I have been using it for the past month. I have had some problems using it though. Sometimes the right day will not come on and tonight the sound or commentary on the night prayer and office readings seemed to stop.



  3. Good Evening, Love this site and will try and donate frequently. At the end of the day it is wonderful to pray night prayer from your site you have become my community at night. You are very good about posting music information – during the recitation of the psalm tonight (and I have heard it frequently) Jan 18 night prayer their was instrumental music in the background that was hauntingly beautiful. I would love to know the name of it. Thank You

  4. Greetings,

    By any chance, would you know of a official resource that has the new collects for use for the LOTH? I’ve seen some sites that say one can use the new collect translation however is there office statement from the Committee on Sacred Liturgy?

    God bless!

  5. Hi – your web site is AMAZING and I rely on it particularly on the road. One question – is there a new official translation? My LOH vol III (1975 ed) has today’s invitatory “Come let us give thanks to the Lord, for his great love is without end”…

    Just want to make sure we are literally praying “on the same page” as a universal church.

    Thanks & may God bless you with his peace

      • Thank you Chloe. I can’t say enough how I appreciate your being part of this community. I still feel bad I didn’t deliver on those psalms I promised you. But it did inspire me to think of the future and possible ways people might need to pray with us and so we are factoring needs like yours into our plans. Thank you for being with us in what seems like from the beginning. God bless you!

      • Hi Chloe,

        My wife and I met you in Bowie and visited you. You gave me a reference for work back then as we were new to the area. We now live in Detroit. I see you moved to Maine. Marge and I hope to travel to Spain for the 500th centenary of St. Theresa of Avila next fall. God bless your pilgrimage and thanks for your kindness to two poor pilgrims back in Maryland.

    • I know you have been with us for many years. You might be surprised at how many people we come to know and love because of your involvement over the years. Thank you!

      • Dane ~
        Not a problem! I have since moved to Maine and while there is no Discalced Carmelite community here, I join the Lay Carmelites once a month. I have told everyone about this web site.
        We are so blessed! I’ll be praying for all of you during my pilgrimage to Fatima,Lourdes, Medjugorje, and Avila in March.

  6. God Bless everyone associated with making this site possible, you are bringing Christ’s word to so many, God Bless you and the work you do

    • Dear Irishcatholic, Today is a bumper day for us with praise! Thank you so much! I am glad you found us. The best thing you can do for us is to spread the word and bring more people into praying with us. God Bless!

  7. As we prayed the Divine Office today using this site I kept calling to mind that it is the spirit of the law, not the letter of the law. So we believe it is with this prayer; that it is the spirit in which we pray and we must not get hung up on the letter of exactness. God appreciates our effort but much more so the love and joy that comes praying with simplicity. Thank you for making it so simple for me to pray the Divine Office. God bless all involved. Our hearts are full and uplifted!!! Thank you!!!

    • Gary and Nancy, thank you on behalf of me (Dane) and Monica. We are the two people operating this website. Monica works full-time on the content, quality, and all sorts of other important tasks. She is talented, highly intelligent, and dedicated to this work. I have to pay the bills with a “day job” and so I don’t work quite as many hours as her. It really helps us both to have people recognize the failings in our work, but praise it all the same. It truly reenergizes us. When I glance through the list of commenters I see many members who regularly support us and I dare not point them out because I would miss so many others, but right at the top of this comment list are two regular supporters (Chloe and Jo of the Angels, Ken, and many more) Thank you for accepting our work as it is and knowing we are doing our best and we will get better (slowly).

      • Here’s more praise for you: You guys do a great job. I really like your rss feed. It’s a pleasure to use on my smartphone. Thank you!

  8. There was no no night prayer last night (Thursday). Sometimes I think that you don’t realize what a blessings something is until it is not there. I really missed it.

    • Very sorry about missing this Night Prayer. We got it out very late, but surprisingly no one caught it until late so when we were too late for most people. We have a pretty good track record on this because we have only missed two or three times in a year. If you are the first to notice content wrong or missing then send an urgent email to and hopefully we can react quickly. Again, sorry.

  9. We are so grateful for this site. We are new members and have just started to pray the Office using this site. It is most helpful when we are alone praying and it feels like we are not alone when we hear the voices played. The Liturgy of the Hours is the universal prayer of the Church and when we have to pray it alone we know that there are millions of others praying the same words at the same time. This site is not only a prayer support but it is a comfort to hear another voice when I have to pray alone. Thank you!!! PS We adore the hymns!!!!

  10. hello,

    I am interested to get the Divine Office app for my iPhone 6 Plus. I am not really sure whether to get the Divine Office or Divine Office 2. The former says that this is he old classic version while the latter is the updated one. However, Divine Office 2 says that this is only for those who already have the divine office old version. If I buy the old version, then will I update it to divine office 2? so I will pay twice for this? So which one should I buy then?

    Thanks for your advice.

    • You will want the Divine Office 2 app, not the upgrade bundle. The Divine Office 2 app is designed for all the latest iOS devices and will be the most future proof.
