Three prayer services are now available as audio recordings — Morning Prayer, the Sixth Hour, and Evening Prayer. Seven versions of each are provided on each CD or album, one track of 10-12 minutes each, for each day of the week. Order a CD version to play in your car on the way to work, at home on you stereo, or to carry with you on your portable CD player. Buy a copy for your children or grandchildren as they go away to college.
— I think this a great service that will inspire priests to pray more than just having the daily Divine Liturgy. There is no question in my mind that unless and until priests pray more than just the Daily Liturgy, God will not abundantly bless the works of his hands in his priestly ministry.
— The spirituality of these prayers which, when said with the heart, leaves nothing more to be said to God, as they allow a complete emptying of oneself in an effort to express love to God. These are truly the church’s rich gifts, other than the eucharist, that God has given to us. Thank you!
— BDO is one of your best ideas ever. I love it and use it on my iPhone. The .pdf format seems to work just fine. Sure, an app would be cool, but this is already such a great help. Don’t have to carry around books. I always have my iPhone with me. Now I also have the Divine Office with me as well. This is a game-changer. Every priest, deacon, monastic and layperson should try this out. If it does not improve your participation in the prayer of the Church, you will have only yourself to blame. Even those accustomed to other translations will appreciate what Jack Figel has done for all of us.
