  1. My Daughter was Delighted

    Posted by Frances on 5th Jan 2016

    My daughter asked for this Liturgy of the Hours as a Christmas gift. While the shipment arrived after the 25th, so that I didn't get to see the, she is delighted with the content and physical beauty of the books. They will serve her for many years and likely be passed down through her family.


  2. FOR USE IN THE NEW EVANGELIZATION

    Posted by Tony May on 22nd Dec 2015

    Beside daily Morning and Evening prayers and other prayer times, the set includes the Office of Readings. I recommend buying the set JUST for these! The first reading is a non-Gospel reading (Epistles and Old Testament. We get the Gospels from Daily Mass so they are not included). Since there are not enough days in the liturgical year to cover all of the scriptures, the "best of" is presented. These scripture readings are a page and a half in length and follow in order, day by day.

    The second readings are a real treasure of these volumes. Here again are the best of, but these are of the Church Fathers and other writers on scriptures including 2nd Vatican Council encyclicals. The Catholic faith has such a consistent way of interpreting the scriptures. You will be in good hands for having the faith through scriptures explained by such masters as Augustine, Gregory the Great, Ambrose, St. Terese of Lisieux and others. These readings are also a page and a half in length and relate to the readings or Liturgical season (Advent, Lent) or Gospel of the day (Sunday) .

    The Psalms are a special treat in their own right being almost a Graduate studies of the scriptures, and yet accessible. The old and new testaments are intermingled in these poetries and edify both the new person as well as the one who has made "a habit" of them.

    In turn this set can be used to help in the evangelization of others once they have started their work in you. Allow the Holy Spirit to work through the readings and practice.

  4. Well worth the price!

    Posted by Jimmy on 8th Oct 2015

    The 4 volume set in leather is beautiful and I like the gold embossed on the edge of the pages. Very happy with the price Online Catholic has for this - it's the lowest anywhere I found and their free shipping was super fast - I had it in like 4 business days.


  5. Extremely happy

    Posted by Janice on 21st May 2015

    The four-volume, leather edition of the Liturgy of the hours is excellent. This is the first time I purchased this set instead of the imitation leather ones, and I am very pleased with the volumes and how they were packaged, and the supplemental guides that came with my order.


  6. Truly Amazing

    Posted by Pr Jim on 7th Aug 2014

    The quality of the leather-bound version is amazing, truly making them "sacred books". Absolutely love the size and feel. As a non-Catholic, I am still having a little difficulty navigating through the pages, but doing so with the reverence they deserve.


  7. LOOKING ALL MY LIFE FOR THIS!!!!!

    Posted by David Mooneyhan on 7th Jun 2014

    This four-volume Liturgy of the Hours is practically perfect in every way!
    The binding, the font, the lack of tacky "illustrations," the FEEL of the books in your hand, the beauty and rhythm of the Grail translation of the Psalms, the selections for the Office of Readings!
    FINALLY!
    After having to deal on a daily basis with the sheer UGLINESS of "Christian Prayer"!
    Thanks be to God.
    And to whoever WOKE UP to the fact that educated Catholics actually DO have an aesthetic sense.


  8. Beautiful Leather Binding and Print!

    Posted by Unknown on 8th Mar 2014

    The set is truly beautiful. They feel great in you hand, the printing is A++ and even the font size is surprisingly readable for me and I typically need reading glasses. If you are attempting to learn the Liturgy of the Hours, it'll still be a challenge, but this set seems to have everything you need. I'm using DivineOffice.org to help me figure things out (still can't find the Hymns) but I'm writing this on day two ;) I'll update my review if possible after Lent 2014. With that, if you want to get the 4-volume set, you need not look any further, this set is complete and beautiful!


  9. Sturdy, Beautiful, and Functional

    Posted by Dan D. on 26th Feb 2014

    This set for the Liturgy of the Hours was the only newly published version I could find on the web and I could not be happier with my decision. For anyone who is considering making the investment for this I highly recommend it. The leather-bound version is sturdy and sits nicely on a desk or next to one's bed. The ribbons are useful once I developed a system for how to mark the pages I needed, and the supplementary material is helpful. The pages, although thin, are beautifully printed, easy to follow after a week or two of use, and the introductory material is interesting and worth meditating on in their own right.

    On that note, it should be part of the product description that the 4-volume set comes with the Supplement and Inserts that are also sold separately. Do not purchase them if you are purchasing this set because they are already included.


  10. A Beautiful Set of the Divine Office

    Posted by Unknown on 14th Feb 2014

    As a person who appreciates religious texts and pondering Catholicism, this is a perfect addition to any personal libary. The set arrived quickly, securely and safely packaged. The quality is good, the leather binding and ribbons are good. The only detraction in my opinion is the pages are a tad thin. Given the number of pages in each volume, this is somewhat understandable.
