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.

Use every day! Better than carrying 4 Vols. around and having to buy a guide every year. Audio still not available for all hours. Disappointing as I paid $15 years ago and bugs still not worked out. Especially when it uses massive memory keeping old info and multiple messages to developers hasn't helped. I'd like a previous and future week kept if I can't sync due to my location or want to listen again to OOR or music. Still wouldn't want to do without it! Love the music. FTR Originally posted review and some e-mails under Pat G. I should add that all my e-mails were answered in a timely manor, just still having problems.

Great - except for...... 90% of my use of this app is for listening to the morning prayer. Once or twice a week the audio for that prayer has not downloaded. (Can't read the morning prayer while I'm driving or walking.) Aside from that it is a great app to help one's prayer life.

Great app I have wanted to pray the Divine Office for years, but was never sure how best to go about it. All the books and the singing, it was very intimidating. As a very busy mom with young kids, I didn't think I could pull it off. This app is a bit pricey, but well worth it! I was going to give it four stars because of the flickering problem, but now that it is fixed, it's definitely worth a full five stars. Thank you.

Deteriorated performance Audio downloads are often missing now or locked in "preparing audio" No response to customer service inquiry about this issue. For a relatively pricey app, developer could do better.
