Divine Office


The Best Catholic iPhone and iPad App is finally available for your Android Phone! [About.com Reader's Choice Awards 2011/2012/2013 winner]. This app is an opportunity for you to participate in the recitation of the Liturgy of the Hours: the public prayer of the Christian community.

NOTE: This app is in English only.

Hours included for each day are:
* Invitatory
* Office of Readings
* Morning Prayer
* Midmorning Prayer
* Midday Prayer
* Midafternoon Prayer
* Evening Prayer
* Night Prayer

This app will automatically update its content while you are running it with an Internet connection.

This App is an audio and text version of the official set of daily prayers from the Liturgy of the Hours of the Roman Catholic Church (Breviary). It wirelessly downloads several days of prayers at a time, without the need for synchronization or access to a computer.

For clergy required to pray the Liturgy of the Hours daily, or laity who recite the daily prayers to maintain their intimate connection with God, The Divine Office App is designed to make praying more convenient, enjoyable, and simple enough for anyone to use. It automatically downloads the appropriate prayers for each office, every day of the year, including Solemnities, Feasts, and Memorials.

The Divine Office App uses the current four-volume Liturgy of the Hours with a bias towards the USA calendar. This version is the official prayer book of the Catholic Church, however, it is suitable for those following Eastern Orthodox and Anglican traditions.

When St. Paul advises us in 1 Thessalonians 5:17 to “pray without ceasing,” he intends more than simply bowing our heads and speaking to God on a regular basis. He means for us to adopt an ongoing attitude of prayer that is a way of life and a constant intercession for the salvation of all mankind.

As the mystical body of Christ prays in unison, it fulfills what Paul advises as Christian conduct, that believers at once pray for the good of themselves, their neighbors, and the world. In this way, prayers become liturgy, a way to fulfill our divine calling and a practical approach for addressing the suffering of the world.

Stopped working Worked fine for about 10 days and then stopped. Followed the instructions to uninstall and reinstall without any success. I loved it but it's not worth a dang if you can't use it.

Very unreliable! The only hour I pray with consistency is Night Prayer, but Night Prayer still won't download more than a few days in a row before I have to uninstall and reinstall the app. Three years I've been dealing with this - first in the podcasts and now in the app.

If you are If you are a priest or religious who is on the run or a lay person who is the same way who needs to pray or just need quiet time with God you should download this for yourself. Because we all need to find time to pray in our busy days in this world who don't have as they say for God .we all do no matter what or how much busy with things we are. Instead of putting the stupid stuff on the radio put this on in the car or walking or something . God is important in each of our lives. Just returned Him back in.
