On Tuesday Server Down for Half-hour

Dear community,

There is a server maintenance expected to take place on the evening of December 6, 2022 between 10PM and 4AM Central.

The maintenance will result in up to 25 minutes of downtime as the server is restarted.
That means you won’t be able to access the prayers during that short window on the website.

You do have our Divine Office app for mobile devices:

About Today

April 30

Saint Pius V, Pope

Optional Memorial

Pope Saint Pius V was born in 1504 in Italy. At 14, he joined the Dominican Order. He held various offices in the Inquisition and at age 62 was elected to the papal chair. During his pontificate, he implemented the reforms of the Council of Trent, reinforced treasured traditions such as reciting the Daily Office, and standardized the Mass by issuing a new missal. He was canonized in 1712 by Clement XI. [1][2]
