  1. Thank goodness I can get the office on my laptop. I purchased the app 3 times of which one got deleted from my kindle , the other to my other phone and doesn’t have service and the 3rd to my new phone. Off which I can’t use in Europe . I hope that I can get in office on my win 8 laptop in Europe at a wifi locations. These prayers have really help align me in faith with holy mother church and the preaching at mass.

  2. The Evening office tonight (Sept 6) was beautiful.. It seemed that the singing was not so high pitched. I sometimes don’t listen to all of it when I hear the singing because of the higher pitch , I find it is not as relaxing and soothing for meditating (in my opinion) as the lower pitch. Thank you for this site. I use it often.
    I love to hear Melinda sing, she has such a beautiful voice.

  3. I find the site quite wonderful. Many times I just listen, other times I read and listen and other times when time is short, I just read.
    Thank you for your ministry! I have you on my phone and I Pad..
    God Bless you as your ministry goes forth and grows

    • I agree with you. I have felt that this ministry has helped me to not only pray the hours regularly, but I sincerely love the sung parts on Saturday and Sunday. I would love to find the music for the Te Deum that they use.

      • @serve_fidelis we published the Te Deum to amazon and iTunes if you want to find it there. The reason our version doesn’t exist elsewhere is that I heard the music sung somewhere and then went searching for the melody and was able to match it up so some ancient tuen. Then Melinda (our chantress) took what I found and adapted the tune for use in the Te Deum. Melinda is an amazing talent. She has perfect pitch and recognizes all the notes she hears. I have a paper and pencil version of the music she created to help her record it. I am not sure where that paper is, but I will find it one of these days and share it.

  4. i find the soprano singing quite ugly and can therefore not utilize the site repulsed to the trained ear of a lifetime of study of acoustic purity and vibration. Really a disappointment!

    • …I wish that I could sing as beautifully as the soprano! Seraph, are you perhaps in the midst of serious difficulties that might negatively impact your perception of life, your relationships with others, and your ability to pray?
      …Please note, significantly, that the psalms are sung on Sundays and solemnities, but otherwise are simply recited. So you will not be encounter the soprano voice on the majority of days. So don’t give up on this site too soon!
      …God bless you, Seraph. Peace.

  5. What was the name and who was the artist of the Morning Hymn to St. Joseph back on March 19th (I think).

    Peace and Prayers!
