More About This Product

Overview

This application is recommended for ages 10+.

The Best Catholic App is finally available for your NOOK! [About.com Reader's Choice Awards 2011 and 2012 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.

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, 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.

    Works great on Color too.

    I have compared this to other apps: this is a great guide for private reflection. The audio aides with being hands free and with pace. The uploads have been flawless. I consider it one of my most valued apps and well worth the investment.

    Fabulous

    Have the full four volume office, which I love, but having the portability of this version has been invaluable as I travel, try to catch Midday prayer, etc. Also enjoy the ability to "share" the hours with the interactive feature since I live in an area where there is no opportunity for communal recitation.

    The best Catholic app ever!

    It is so nice to listen and pray along with the audio track. With that and the notation of how many other people are also praying along it makes me feel interconnected with a community of the faithful. God bless the producers of this app and those who pray with it.

    Too bad!

    Had been enjoying this app untill a month ago. Have not been able to get any contents delivered besides just telling me the amount of people that are praying and a continuous error message that there is a problem with my internet connection - NOT SO! This only happens with this app! Tried to get in contact with their customer service, filled out a ticket, waited, and nothing!!!!

    If you are into prayers in your daily life, this app is for you.

    The divine office liturgy will give you prayers for each part of your day, including the saint of the day. I highly recommend this app.

    I start and end my day with this wonderful app. I did run into an issue with it not being able to sync but after putting in a service ticket, I received a reply within two hours with the fix. If you get an error saying that it is unable to sync, go to the Apps menu on the nook and click on the 'contents' icon in the lower left corner and then choose 'Check for Updates'.

    I have been very happy with this product since I bought it originally for my nook color sometime in early 2013;  and then transferred it to my Nook Hd one year ago.   There was a problem lately with no content showing  but once I submitted a ticket to customer service they worked with me continuously to fix it.  The audio part is unique as far as I know.

    Good Divine Office app

    I like this app and use it when I am away from the hardcopy Office books. I wish it included the optional memorials, even if only in printed form without audio.

    Overall, very nicely done and the development team is very responsive to feedback.
