  1. Glory to Jesus, please do remember me and my family the Igbondo’s in your daily prayers, that God should strengthening us in our faith and grant us His mercies and blessings.

  2. I am writing to thank you for this ministry. I have had a very dark year. The Office of Readings has been like an anchor to me. Even when my faith seemed gone this has help bring me through. Even in the darkest night God’s eternal Word is forever faithful.

  3. Today, the feast day of their founer, let us pray for the Norbertine order. I pray especially for the members of their loacal monastery who supplement the staff of my parish. – Joe

  4. Holy Mary, MOTHER OF GOD, Queen of Heaven, INTERCEDE for us, Each and Every MOMENT of the Day! We PRAY to You, because We KNOW Your SON “Listens” to YOU!

    “Let there be PEACE Throughout the WORLD, and, Within Every SOUL!”

    HAIL MARY!

    AMEN.

  5. I may suggest that someone today would join me in reciting the Rosary. And in sending a donation to ( Saint Jude Children Hospital ) Please pray for our President Donald Trump and the Governor of your Stste and all elected officials that they mayrule with peace and justice.
    May the Month of the Sacred Heart of Jesus bring you peace, love, and forgiveness. Let pray for each other thanks. Fr. Gill

  6. Today we begin the beautiful Month of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. It is only fitting that this devotion should be carried through the world with prayer and returning to the Sacred Heart. some form of penance for our past sins. Try to join someone in the recitation of the Holy Rosary ( where two or more are gathered in my name etc.) if I may suggest that someone would join me in sending a donation to ( Saint Jude Children Hospital ) Please pray for our President Donald Trump and the Governor of your Stste and all elected officials that they may rule with peace and justice. And let us pray for each other that we may someday be united in HIS HOUSE. Fr. Gill

  7. Let us PRAY for those suffering from the Volcanic Eruption on the Big Island in HAWAI’I! Please support our fellow Citizens in ANY which way POSSIBLE.

    THANK YOU DIVINEOFFICE.ORG FOR THE SAINT AUGUSTINE READINGS…

    …charming, intellectual addition to my DAY!

    GOD BLESS!

      • Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them. May the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.

  8. Let us pray that God will send His Spirit afresh on His shepherds that they be united in word and action to Him who is the Way, the Truth, and the Life (John 14:6).

  9. So thankful for this site and especially for the app. It’s been a big part of my prayer life. However the woman reader (who seems to be on every recording lately) reads so overly dramatically, that it is terribly distracting…almost comical at times. I appreciate what she’s going for, but it takes so much away from the prayers.

    • i concur, Peter, but the dead horse has been beaten so often there is nothing left to beat. I guess she reads it as she feels it and suppose one can’t really fault that even though it does distract from the prayer.

  10. We have not checked in for some time so we checked the Older comments to catch up. As two very Irish Catholic Sisters (Nuns) we cannot resist providing clarification re the Monks of Glenstall Abbey & the singing of the Regina Coeli. It is NOT Sinead O’Connor singing at the Abbey. It is the great Irish Musicologist – & National Treasure – Noirin Ni Raiain. Anyone can check this out on You Tube & see/hear many other offerings of Noirin. If you are interested in authentic Irish musical culture, in the Irish/Gaelic, Noirin is a must.
    God bless you all,
    Srs. Assumpta & Mary Teresa

  11. Hi Kevin,

    I am certainly not an authority on this subject, but I do find questions like that very interesting. I looked up the text online: http://www.catholic-bible.org/psalms/psalm-51.htm They use the word rejoice and all the Protestant versions do the same. To me thrill and rejoice have the same meaning. Once again, I am not an authority on the subject so whether or not the text has actually changed is not something I can answer, but I like thrill too. God bless you, and may you find the peace and contentment that the Lord graciously bestows upon his children always

  12. I noticed a change in Psalm 51 today:

    Make me hear rejoicing and gladness,
    that the bones you have crushed may *thrill*.

    used to say:

    Make me hear rejoicing and gladness,
    that the bones you have crushed may *revive*.

    Were the Psalm Texts updated?

  13. I ask your prayers for my 50 year old daughter Gretchen who is now in her last days, experiencing a lot of suffering from many kinds of cancer. Pray that she will accept the Sacraments of the Church that she has rejected for 35 years. Gretchen needs to feel the Mercy of our Lord through the wonderful Sacraments he gave us who are in full communion with the Catholic church he instituted.

    • My prayers are with you… may all who are on their final journey here feel the comfort of Jesus presence through the Sacraments and especially his body and blood in the Eucharist.

  14. Thanks very much for this wonderful resource. Forgive me if you are already aware of this, but the antiphon for today’s Invitatory appears to come from the Common of Virgins, rather than the one specified in the Ordinary. Is this an error, or have I missed something? God bless!

  15. I would like to ask prayers for my cousin Betsy Jacobson. She is at the end of ninth grade and recently announced on Facebook that she is in a relationship with a girl who is in tenth grade. Please pray that they realize the homosexual lifestyle is wrong and that they end the relatonship

    God Bless you and your families!!!!

  16. I would like to ask prayers for Alfe Evans a little boy in England who is sick. The hospital took him off life support 4 days ago and he is still living and the British court saying that he can’t leave the country to seek treatment at a hospital connected with the Vatican.

    • The Court is not taking into account that Euthanasia is WRONG, as is SUICIDE, and WE, “Will PRAY for You and the Young Person,” Considering these Extenuating Circumstances.

      My, and, “ALL OUR LOVE TO YOU.”

      May the Lord, God Jesus Christ INTERCEDE for US.

      BLESSINGS

    • Let us also pray for his doctors and judges, and all medical and judicial personnel, that they will return to their duty and promise to defend innocent lives.

  17. Please do remember us, the Catholics in Benue state Nigeria in your prayers, as we are been attack by headsmen in our communities, that the good Lord should come to our aid!
