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.

Takes up a lot of space Please update this app so that there is an option to save downloads in external storage or SD card. As the new Android prevents the option to install on SD Card, it will be efficient to have a small app size, and large files saved in external storage. This will be beneficial for the faithful who have lower end devices with low internal storage. Same users are most likely to have no access to reliable internet connection, so it is imperative that downloads can be saved in the external storage. Thank You!
