Where can I find a copy of the Divine Office?

Full Question

I am experiencing a renewal of my faith. I already pray the rosary and the Divine Mercy Chaplet, but I think saying the Divine Office would be an added benefit. Where can I get a copy?


The Daughters of St. Paul offer a one-volume edition that contains all of the Divine Office except the Office of Readings. Catholic Book Publishing also offers a one-volume edition that lacks the Office of Readings. Its four-volume edition contains the entire Divine Office. I suggest that first you familiarize your self with the Liturgy of the Hours by praying it online:

Alternatively, Magnificat is a monthly magazine that provides for each day simple versions of Morning, Evening, and Night Prayer, plus the Mass readings, brief lives of the saints, and a short spiritual reading from one of the saints or a spiritual leader:

    I use rhe book”Shorter Christian prayers”
    It is a good book for lay people. It has morning ,Afternoon ,and night prayer.

    Or if you have an iOS or Android phone or tablet you can download iBreviary which has the Office and the Office of Readings as well as other Catholic prayers and it’s free.

    There are also very good and inexpensive apps for both iOS and android which offer the entire Divine Office. I use iBrevary on my iOS device. Devine Office by Surgeworks is very good also, and includes audio readings of each office.
