    Fr. Deely, I stand corrected. I intended to Type Luke 1: 46 -55. I asked for forgiveness. Bu my Prayer remains the same for you and all the Soul’s God has place you in presence with. God Bless, Craig

  5. Fr. Craig says:

    In the Name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost, Amen.Fr. Deely, I lift you up, as well as all the Soul’s with you in Florida. May we reflect on the following and a brief Closing of Reflection the Evening, on Luke 1: 14 – 22.When we magnify the Lord, the Spirit of the Lord rejoices, and strengthens His Soul’s. The Blessed Virgin Mary’s Song of Praise: The Magnificat. I Pray the Lord, brings the Holy Spirit in filling everyonewith Praises for their Salvation wherein all will be called Blessed. Here my Prayer O’ Lord, “We here to be Living Testament. May God Breathe in us His Spirit of Royal Decree and by Commandment of Jesus Christ Emmanuel may our Soul’s Exclaim and Magnify the Lord, Jesus Christ Emmanuel, where in Holy Ghost (Spirit), lest we be deceived; in “God our Saviour” His Soul’s we be, Now and for Eternity. Chance not the slightest doubt, for Satan to enter in. Take Knee before “Our Lord and Savior”, with Reverence Bowed Head, for here His Soul’s “Our Lord and Savior” Dwells, with Grace, Mercy, and Peace in Faith we receive”, “Peace in Our Salvation.”In the Name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost, Amen.Luke 1: 14-22.English Standard Version (ESV) Mary’s Song of Praise: The Magnificat46 And Mary said,“My soul magnifies the Lord, 47  and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior, 48 for he has looked on the humble estate of his servant.     For behold, from now on all generations will call me blessed; 49 for he who is mighty has done great things for me,     and holy is his name. 50 And his mercy is for those who fear him     from generation to generation. 51 He has shown strength with his arm;     he has scattered the proud in the thoughts of their hearts; 52 he has brought down the mighty from their thrones     and exalted those of humble estate; 53 he has filled the hungry with good things,     and the rich he has sent away empty. 54 He has helped his servant Israel,     in remembrance of his mercy, 55 as he spoke to our fathers,     to Abraham and to his offspring forever.”56 And Mary remained with her about three months and returned to her home.

    A prayer for a marriage near failure. May God through the power of Jesus heal and restore it with the aid of the Holy Spirit. May both parties ignore the spiritual attacks and seek resolution with God.

  10. Jim says:

    Father Thomas, thank you for accepting God’s call. I will pray for you.

I also ask that God gives you outstanding staff at your assistance living location.thank again for your life’s commitment.

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!!
