The Little Office of the Blessed Virgin Mary
Flexible blue leather cover
Printed in red and black
The best prayer is the prayer of the Church. Here it is – simpler than the Breviary but essentially the same. Pray the inspired psalms of the Holy Ghost. Around since the 8th century. Hated by heretics, loved by friends of Our Lady. Recited by Saints John Damascene, Catherine, Vincent Ferrer, Louis of France, Bridget of Sweden.
This is the first ever edition to include all the Gregorian chant for the Little Office. The text is based on an edition published just after the Reform Act in 1850 (allowing English Catholics to openly practice the faith). Fully updated to comply with the editio typica for the Latin Rite (1961). Latin and English.

I am most endeared by this particular version of the Little Office of the Blessed Virgin Mary. When I pray other versions of the LOotBVM. I recall this version and wish that I were using it instead. I pray that it never goes out of print and that my Carmelite Sisters will always be able to provide it to the Faithful. To Jesus through Mary. Amen.

This little book is the perfect size for those wishing to "pray the hours" and give praise and glory to God and Our Lady. The font is easy to read, and the prayers, psalms and hymns are given in both English and Latin. Also included are the Gregorian chants which are a wonderful addition. There is also a brief but inclusive history of The Little Office, and instruction in how to pray the hours is given all throughout book. I believe this is a wonderful tool for anyone seeking to deepen their prayer life and spend more time with Our Lord.

This is a wonderful book with both the Latin and English side by side. So easy to hold and read. I have recently gotten the brown scapular and had the priest enroll me and bless it. Even though I was given permission to say a rosary daily and need not do the Little Office, I chose to learn how to do it so I can add it to my rosary. This book will help me attain my goal
From the time I ordered my book it was only days before receiving it and I loved the card and prayer card enclosed with my order.
Thank you so much.

This is not a blurry offset of some old book, but a newly printed, beautifully ordered edition, easy to use and rewarding to hold in your hands. The presentation couldn't be better, in handsome paper and with a luxurious binding. And when it says bilingual, it means it. The whole Latin text is here, with a complete, exact modern translation. The whole thing is a triumph of clear thinking and good work.
