Divine Office is available with Alexa

Please Note

This is the Liturgy of the Hours for August 05. Your local date is .

Dear community,

Those of you in the United States can now pray the Liturgy of the Hours with Alexa. It’s yet another simple and convenient way to pray the hours and we hope it will reach and serve especially the vision impaired and the blind.

Just search for in the Alexa Skills store and enable them on your Amazon account to get the Liturgy of the Hours major hours: Morning, Evening, Night Prayer and Office of Readings ready to be played back on your Alexa-enabled devices.

Once the skills are enabled, you can use Alexa’s open phrases to start the playback of the Divine Office audio podcast for today. For example, you can say:

Alexa, start today’s Morning Prayer
Alexa, start today’s Evening Prayer
Alexa, start today’s Night Prayer
Alexa, start today’s Office of readings

The Invitatory Psalm and the Divine Office About Today (Catholic Calendar) posts are also available as separate Alexa skills. You can say:

Alexa, start today’s Invitatory Psalm
Alexa open Today’s Catholic Calendar

As mentioned above, we have vision impaired and blind community members that rely on the accessibility of our work. We made the Divine Office podcast available through Alexa especially with their needs in mind and we sought and received this feedback:

“Everything is working fine as long as you stick to the instruction: “Alexa start” and then the specific hour you want to pray. This is fantastic, congratulations. Alexa’s are being used more and more as a tool in the Disability community.”
Dennis Polselli, leader of the Catholic Guild for the Blind, Diocese of Fall River, Massachusetts

You can help them and our mission by leaving a 5 star review, it will make the podcast easier to find. You can also help by sharing this announcement on you social media accounts or directly with anyone that might benefit from having another easy way to pray the hours.

God bless your effort to help!

    Almighty Instruction through the Holy Spirit, via ALEXA, which can be heard throughout a couple of rooms. How sweet it is!

    Thank you to everyone who makes this prayer and site possible!

    Terrific! I love this. People watch out for scam artists that will steal all of your savings. Trust your gut feelings. If something feels amiss, stop what you are doing – trust that and say goodbye. I did not do this and now my husband and I are having difficulty reconciling. I believe Jesus talks to us in many ways. Listen to Him! The google search I made for apple support yielded a barrel of snakes – Cunning thieves who cleaned us out of our savings. You will know in your heart when something is wrong. They are truly cunning – beware. Then you will not hajve to deal with police, angry family members, and being broke. God Bless You!

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!!
