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!

      You are in my prayers for a deepening of your spiritual life. I also could use prayers for the same thing. Thank you and my prayers for you shall continue. God bless you for affording me the opportunity to commune again with the Lord.

    Our Daughter-In-Law would like to participate in Divine Mercy Prayer. I do not know how to enable this for her. Do not know how to contact you as I do not know your email address.
    Would you kindly add Deborah Daigle to your distribution?

    Thank you so much for this ministry. I have done the liturgy of the hours on and off for 40 years. The truth is that it was mostly off. It was hard to keep it up or share it with my family. I have stayed with the online for two years now. I have introduced my family to it and my wife and daughter do the hours with me. This has helped us greatly to be a family in the Spirit. Thank you so much for this ministry.

    Thank you for the Divine Office payers, which I recite at specific times of the day as a Lay Dominican at our Parish in the Philippines. Many parts of our country are now on lockdown because of the corona virus and as a senior citizen, I can no longer attend mass at our church, but thanks God we can hear mass online and recite the Divine Office prayer online. God bless you and keep you safe!

    It’s wonderful and uplifting to read about all of the recent progress. I pray that work on the new translation will proceed with ease. And grateful thanks to you and all of your team for your tremendous work! For those who are interested in the progress of the Liturgy of the Hours, Second Edition, the USCCB has provided an update page on its website tracking its progress. Besides providing the progress of translation of its many parts, it lists the parts that have been confirmed by the Holy See so far. The update page is at:

    Is registration free now for someone who is not a member?

    This is wonderful news. God is great, not just good. I enjoy all the music you have on your site. I hope to purchase some of it in the future. Rebecca Hincke has a heavenly voice.

    I’ll be excited to see all the expansion of services in the coming year. I never miss a day on the Office of Readings.

    May God continue to bless you, Dane, and your staff in the coming year. Thank you so much for all the inspiration you provide. I’ll keep you in my prayers.

  11. Beryl Hudson says:

    I have been with you for a few years now, and do not miss a day, you and the team have been a great inspiration to me and I thank you all. I live in Australia and belong to the Franciscan Lay Order since 1984 and the daily Office is part of my life, now I am ‘old and isolated’ I can say it with you and your team on my iPhone wherever I am, thank you – we are all ‘extra blessed’ through your tireless work. God bless you all – it was good to see the video clip 🙂 keep up the good work I will always thank God for you. Beryl ofs

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!!
