A thank you message and our plans for the future

Dane Falkner, Divine Office founder and producer, prepared a video message for you, our community members, supporters, our brothers and sisters in Christ.

The purpose is:

• to thank you for your response to our fundraising appeal

• announce our plans to improve the functionality of the website

• and remove the requirement for registration in US

• to bring you the Office for the Dead, not just on the website but also on the Divine Office app

• to talk about our plans for the Second Edition of the Liturgy of the Hours

• and share with you what opportunities have arisen now that we have the permissions we need.

Let us praise God for the many blessings that continue to nourish our faith and enhance our community!

    I am exploring your site, divine You are providing a wonderful service, thank you for your work. I have been using Universalis for over a year now for Lauds and Night Prayer. During Lent I am going to say 1 of the afternoon prayers well and explore more of your site.

  2. One thing I would like to see on the app is Comments. I use it almost exclusively When I do go to the website, I usually find there are either no new comments from the staff. So I don’t come back again for several months. I had not head of the DO being approved by the USCCB until today. It would be nice to get these kind of messages on the app.

    Love the app, and will continue with my monthly contribution for at least another year. The paid version of the app and a bit every month is a small price to pay for such a great apostolate.

    Praise God. I am delighted that the outpouring of generosity exceeded your needs and expectations. It sounds like you have a great plan. If I can be of any service with your new production, I would be honored to help.

    As a Lay Cistercian…obligated to pray morning and evening prayer, you have made a wonderful and very useful web site.
    Others are available but you site is the BEST. Because of your efforts, I don’t have to flip back and forth in the pages of a book and I can have availability anytime with my phone. I like to go to a quiet cemetery to pray The Office and you have made this possible for me and everyone else. Thank you very much.

    I feel part of something bigger than my self-prayers. And part of that is support , albeit my small contribution, and prayer for the ministry.

  6. Stephen Cavanna says:

    Hi Thank you and all those active in this ministry. It is been a great blessing to me

    I suggest that you remind those working on prayer petition for the next edition to remember that the purpose of the divine office is continual prayer and prayer for the salvation of ALL mankind and not just the salvation of those of us who are praying it This is a subtle difference from the current prayers
    God bless

    Thank you very much for sharing this great news, how amazing and yet not really, because your work is really God’s work, isn’t it? Just like Mother Teresa of Kolkota’s work. God provides, opens doors, leads to better and greater things for His glory. Thank you very very much for everything, including the walk, so refreshing and invigorating. You are rare!

  8. Sarah Smith says:

    My heart is so happy to hear this message. Thank you for your commitment to this ministry!

  9. Linda Guinan says:

    My apology. The prayer is called the ‘Te Deum’.
    Now that I use my iphone often for morning & evening prayer it will be good to also be able to pray the Office for the Dead, already possible on my desk computer.
    Wondering how photo was made possible, don’t remember. And how to remove or change it?
    Mrs. Linda Guinan OP, ie ‘Mrs. Linda’

  10. Linda Guinan says:

    Just enjoyed the video with Dane…thank you for sharing your walk. Always curious of the faces behind the voices.
    I especially wait for the Office of the Dead / De Teum to be on the site…as a Lay Dominican this is part of our prayers when someone among us dies, and being able to access it this way will be good.

Pray anywhere
I have prayed the Divine Office for many years. [...] When I discovered this app, all of my concerns of ribbon placement were gone. Having the Divine Office on my phone is absolutely the best thing ever! The sense of community is so wonderful as I see how many others are praying at the same time as myself. [...] Now I don’t need to turn a lamp on as I use to when I used the Office printed volumes. It is such a blessing to have the Divine Office in my pocket. Many times I’ve been sitting in a doctor’s waiting room at the time of Mid Morning prayer. It is so calming of any worries to pull out my phone, open the app, and be able to connect with Our Lord at those times I need Him most. I don’t use the audio version much but the few times I’ve traveled, it is so comforting to not have to skip the Office in order to keep my hands on the steering wheel and my eyes in the road. I recommend this app to friends all the time, especially to those who’d like to pray the Office but feel intimidated by the size of the printed version and getting the ribbons placed properly. Thank you for developing this app. It is my constant companion.

Super helpful
I have only been introduced to the divine office prayers two times before I downloaded this app. It is laid out in a way that is very easy to understand, and there is an audio option that will say all of the prayers. There is an option to set reminders throughout the day. I got this because, I didn’t really know how to say the divine office, and I didn’t know what prayer books I needed to purchase to begin. During the shutting down of churches for covid :( this has been a wonderful resource. One cool feature is that you can tap on the “in prayer” link and see little specks of light around the globe lighting up in the area that someone else is praying. It’s so cool to see everyone praying with you and is a powerful reminder that we are all connected and unified in Christ’s mystical body.

Praying with the whole Church
I love this app! Since it is now free and no longer for sale, I made sure to donate the price of buying it, and then some. I have loved the Liturgy of the Hours for 25 years. But I always felt alone when I prayed it. With this app, I am connected to others! I use it in conjunction with my printed Christian Prayer volume. On other days, I cannot get to my book but with the app, I always have the prayers available. I have the printed calendar with my book, but I actually rely on this more for placing my ribbons. The audio is wonderful!! I often read out loud with it. I love that I can change the speed of the audio! I have found that 1.3 is good for me. Thank you, thank you, thank you for this app. Thank you for still supporting it. Thank you for updating the “one God,” to just “God” change in the prayers. My book still throws me off but your app is right! Highly recommend this. Many friends have it. THANK YOU!!
