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...
Divine office App is a gift every day!
I can honestly say, this is the first time I’ve ever given thanks to God for an App! It prompts me when it is time to pray, I am thrilled to wake up to hear the songs and prayers first thing in the morning, & throughout the day. Some days I drift off to sleep listening to the songs and prayers. It sings the most beautiful songs and hymns daily! Just when I need a prayer boost, the words are there to inspire and remind me of what is most important in life. The giant Earth rotating around on its axis letting me know where the other faithful are praying in real time is the best... is is my favorite App. :-).
What a blessing!
And what a well done app! It has allowed me to basically retire my breviary. It lives on my bookshelf now as a backup ... no more ribbon juggling, page flipping, etc., just launch the app and flow through the hours smoothly, without those previous distractions. Oh, I could pick a nit or two, notably the occasional mismatch between the text and the audio, but on the whole much easier to use than the tradition printed volume. And the inclusion of the audio is wonderful for simulating the experience of praying the hours in community. Well done. Highly recommended.
I have used a couple of other LOH apps for several years but I recently downloaded the Divine Office app to try it. I really like the audio part of this app. The singing of the hymns is beautiful and the readings of the antiphons and strophes of the psalms has a slow, clear and contemplative style that is prayerful for me. It really seems that I am praying with others when I use the app. I also like the map showing other sites across the world praying at the same time. One negative is that infrequently the prayers do not match the US LOH readings and psalms listed in my ordo. Not sure why.
This app is a wonderful gift and I am very thankful to be able to use it daily. I travel for my job and can’t always lug around my LOTH book and this makes it easy for me to continue living out my faith and prayer life no matter where I am. St Paul tells us to pray unceasing and Psalmist says 7 times a day I praise you o Lord! 7 represents perfection and eternity and so with this app it makes it very easy to carry that out through each day. I also use it in accompaniment with my LOTH book at home as I enjoy the chants and the voices are superb! Pax Christi, Joe
Pray the Liturgy of the Hours with Ease
The Prayer of the Church has been difficult fo many but this App allow us to immediately be able to pray with many others throughout the world without having to worry about finding the right texts for these daily prayers. It is a Blessing of those who have dedicated so much of their time to create and maintain this site so that it is accurately written for each day of the year to be prayed with others and even recorded for those who desire an audio of the prayer of the Church. God Bless
I prayed for growth in my prayer life.
I felt that I needed to grow in my prayer life. I prayed, as I had years ago, for inspiration from the Holy Spirit. I received that inspiration in less than a week. I read a short piece in America Media, that mentioned the DivineOffice. I had thought that was something that only priests did. Google lead me to this app, In every way it is an answer to my prayers. The inspiration that this app provides is extraordinary, and it increases daily. It took me 81 years to find it. All good things happen in God’s time.
Liturgy of the hours - with audio
This app has been invaluable to me during a recovery from eye surgery. I was not able to see clearly when I downloaded the app, with it I have been able to hear the liturgy of the hours as well as, not so clearly, follow in the Christian Prayer liturgy of the hours. The application is also very helpful when starting to pray the hours which can be difficult to learn. I highly recommend this app.
Hands Down the Very Best!
iBreviary is also a top notch app for the Divine Office, but this app, DivineOffice by Surge Works, gets the nod. Its UI is a bit more user friendly than its rival, but that could be my American bias coming out. But most of all, DivineOffice gently took a rank novice like me by the hand and showed me the way. And its antiphons, prayers, and other variables faithfully follow the Christian Prayer one-volume breviary. Thank you, Surge Works! You answered the prayers of this humble, stumbling follower of our Lord Jesus.
Love this app
This app is really great. I think they should just get it in the hands of as many as possible. Use the current readings! There can be much dramatization with the readings but in the end it works out. There is one guy whom I can’t stand as he reads the readings but he too will grow on you. You’ll know exactly who it is as soon as you hear. He speeds up ... then slow ... fast ... slow. Hahaha great app! Make it available.
I recommend this app for anyone who wants a simple easy to follow version of the Devine Office. I have been praying the Office for years and this app is the best I have seen. As someone said, great for when you are away. Just open the app and start the prayers! Also follows the Proper of the Saints for that day’s intention and is also easy to follow. Can’t say enough about how important it is to start and end the day in prayer!
Great app for praying the Divine Office daily
In the past I used the podcast version but at times there was a delay in updates. Someone on podbean then mentioned about this app. I used to use Universalis but this app is better as now I can play and pray along. Most of all, I have been looking for sung hymns. This one fits the bill. Beautiful hymns. As a bonus, the reading and psalms are read in a conversational style. Really really good. Thank you!
A true Godsend
This app is a true Godsend. What a gift to have the Liturgy of the Hours available night and day. And for any that are offended by the beautiful productions of the services simply don’t hit the play button and you have a breviary that is always current and ready for daily use. Especially for those whom cannot be a part of a community that prays the Hours in common this is a grace filled gift.
What a surprise
I installed the app to help me with committing to daily prayer during Lent. When I noticed it had a audio option I couldn’t see myself ever using it. Was I ever wrong. I use the audio option all the time! It helps give it a more communal feel. This has been a game changer. I believe everyone should use it - especially in these days where prayer is greatly needed.
Thank God for the Divine Office App
To the developers and maintainers of this app: Thank you and may God bless you all, always. To pray the daily prayers of the Catholic (Universal) church as a body makes me feel humbly united to the Church as the living body of Christ! To actually see at any time how many people are on prayer with me is a great hope in a world that desperately needs prayer as the only ultimate means of obtaining grace. Easy to use, good for the soul. Thank you.
This App is a blessing.
For the times I'm on the road or when I don't feel like praying the Divine Office alone' this App is great. I recommend it to everyone, especially those are just beginning to pray the Liturgy of the Hours, as it laid out in a straight forward way and doesn't require flipping through many pages on complicated days. Where does the the parish secretary go when she dies? The Divine Office!
