  1. To whom it may concern,
    My name is Fr. Stephen Arabadjis.  I am a member of the Society of St. Pius X.  But I am in my 7th year of Sabbatical.Therefore I was hoping your group could do a 54 day rosary novena for my intentions.  But any prayers and sacrifices would be greatly appreciated.  I know Our Lady will reward you generously for this.
    In Our Lady,
    Fr. Arabadjis
    P.S. Thanking you in advance, since I don’t always get all my communications.

  2. Thank you so much for what you do each and every day. I pray that everyone who was involved in the daily production of these life-giving prayers be blessed with happiness, health, and peace of mind.


  3. Hi, Just wanted to say thank you for making the app available again for Australia. Tried to send an email to say it worked but it came back as undeliverable.

    thanks, Pia

  4. I agree this is a wonderful resource, especially the app, allowing me to pray while driving or walking! I wonder if any of you know of similar audio recording offerings for English translations of the pre-conciliar Divine Office? For instance, those provided at

  5. Thank you for preparing the Divine Office for us and presenting it in one complete text for each hour. Thank you for the audio files that we can follow along with and for the beauty of your hymns. Because of your work, I am able to pray the Divine Office. God bless you.

  6. Question for all, especially for clergy. How do you pronounce his name…”August-teen” or “Au-gus-ten”. Certainly it doesn’t matter and we can’t know how he and Monica pronounced it. I ask the question out of curiosity because I’ve never heard a clergy member pronounce the name use the first pronunciation. In my experience, clergy always say “Au-gus-ten.” Silly question perhaps but are you taught this pronunciation in seminary? Another name is “RA-fael” or “Raf-fael” In my experience, clergy members tend to pronounce a hard “A” on the first syllable. As I wrote, there is no right answer. I’m just curious the same.

  7. In appreciation of Divine Office and this community…may we all be guided by the Holy Spirit toward Spirit-ed and Spirit-filled action. In Carmel, Melissa Mruskovich

    • Happy Feast Day Sts. Anne & Joachim, parents of our Blessed Mother and Grandparents to Jesus. Let us honor these significant people God gifted us with.

  8. It is nice to see just how many of us are praying at the same time. I like DO for many reasons. One is that in the morning while I take my inhalation I am able to do a hands free Morning Prayer..and, of course, the devotion and felt fervor of the readers is so, so strengthening and healing to me

  9. This is my daily bread. I have the app, which is such a blessing in the week when away from the home.
    Excellent does not express this amazing way to worship God.having this format at the touch of the hand

  10. Good morning.
    Question. Why the Psalm prayers are not said while praying the Office of Readings? I don’t know if there is reason for it and that’s why I am asking. It has been happening lately. Thanks in advance for your response.

  11. It’s so great to see a ministry like this persevering and finding a way to work with the USCCB to make something to beautiful available to so many. We need to pray and not faint–and this is an invaluable help in doing so.

    I’ll be sending everyone I can to

    God bless you all,

  12. I am certain that you are aware of the recent liturgical change in translation of the closing prayer. As of February 17 we are to take out the word “ONE”..It’s now to be just God forever and ever. Perhaps these were already pre-recorded and it’s a big process to change. Regardless, thanks for this ministry, it is a wonderful community and a great resource.

  13. Thank you for this wonderful community of prayer. May our good and generous God bless all of you with his amazing love. And may the Sacred Heart of Jesus enfold you and keep you safe.
