  1. Hello,

    I have just recently gotten back into The Divine Office; although, I am only using a Breviary. It is difficult for me to do any of the other hours except Lauds and Vespers. Is there anyone who can point me to someone or something that can help guide me with the Breviary on how to pray the Office of Readings?

    Please help, as it would be great joy if I could do so.

    – Daniel C.

  2. I am trying to find the hymn that i have heard here on Divine Office. A female vocalist sings, “love one another as I have loved you.” Perhaps “Truly, I tell you…. my peace I give to you.”
    Thank you, + Deacon John

  3. I would just like to thank you, and all who make it possible, most sincerely for continuing to bring us the breviary during this very trying time of lockdown in the world. I am in South Africa. I am sure that there are many people throughout the world who use this breviary and are very grateful. May God bless you. Deacon Lawrence Augustine.

  4. “Though you might feel worn-out or less enthusiastic, keep your spirits up. Dark clouds pass and won’t continue to block out the sunlight. Just wait for the clouds to pass.”
    –Francis Xavier Nguyen Van Thuan

    “He who endures to the end will be saved.”
    –Matthew 10: 22

    Faith Lift: Perseverance in Faith

    “Faith is an entirely free gift that God makes to man. We can lose this priceless gift, as St. Paul indicated to St. Timothy: ‘Wage the good warfare, holding faith and a good conscience. By rejecting conscience, certain persons have make shipwreck of their faith.’ To live, grow, and persevere in the faith until the end we must nourish it with the word of God; we must beg the Lord to increase our faith; it must be ‘working through charity,’ abounding in hope, and rooted in the faith of the Church.”
    –Catechism of the Catholic Church #162

    Mercy Lift:
    “Have great confidence; God is always our Father, even when He sends us trials.”
    –St. Faustina

    Faith and Sight

    So I go on, not knowing,
    –I would not, if I might–
    I would rather walk in the dark with God
    Than go alone in the light;
    I would rather walk with Him by faith
    Than walk alone by sight.
    –Mary Gardner Brainard, 1837-1905

  6. I’m 80 years old. I can’t recall now how many years I’ve had the Divine Office app but it must have been almost from your beginning. When it was not IOS updated, I continued to get it on my old iPad!. Then I discovered the this website. I am a Dominican Tertiary, it is amazing to me that Divine Office linked me to a praying community of Franciscians! I’m living with the Little Sisters of Poor now and can still go outside with iPad and pray with you. It is a great comfort to me! Thank you for all you!

  7. I am sure no one is happy being confined to their homes . We make the best of it. As a retired priest I miss going to my Church and being-with parishioners. In reality they are the Church. I have taking of what I have ( Time ) to occupy myself doing crafts selling them and sending the money to St. Jude Hospital for Children. (A busy mind is a Less Tempted Mind.) As a sinner I Thank God for the time I still have on earth. I’m 85, As I said many time. Be Ready You Never Know When
    HE WILL CALL. Fr. Gill
