As a regular user of the 4 volume Divine Office, I liked the thought of this and decided to give it a chance. What a wonderful idea, and a really great implementation of it! It not only has the prayers for the hours themselves, but the page references for those who use the 4 volume or single volume Christian Prayer. It's nicely designed, the colours are attractive (and allows 3 different options), it shows an image of the day and has a page of explanation of any special days on the Church calendar. Personally, I think this app will be of great value to me, and so far I've not found a problem with it. Great work!

The Divine Office app is an opportunity for you to participate in the recitation of the Liturgy of the Hours, an ancient and meditative collection of psalms, hymns and scripture that represent the public prayer of the Christian community.

If you are unable to pray in community, but love the contentment of praying with others, the Divine Office App will allow you to join a huge virtual community praying together through our website, iPhone apps, iPad app, Mac app and soon also through a new Android app.

Hours included for each day are:
  • Invitatory
  • Office of Readings
  • Morning Prayer
  • Daytime Prayer - text only, no audio
  • 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.

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.
