Reviews - What do customers think about Little Office of the Blessed Virgin Mary?

Little Office of the Blessed Virgin, Mary  Jan 19, 2007
Well done book. Great cover and binding. Clear instructions. Some options of prayers and antiphons. Good printing. Ribbon included.
Honoring the Mother of God  Nov 9, 2006
The Office of the Blessed Virgin is a gift to the Church. It is a comfortable alternative to the regular office for those of us who want to pay tribute to Our Blessed Mother with "her" office. It is particularly "Marian" while telling the "greatest story ever told" of her Son, Jesus Christ, through its holy psalms and verses. It is shorter and simpler than the regular office and offers great glory to God by honoring and giving praise to His holy Mother. I would give this particular version a "5 star" but it lacks one thing-- the Latin version with the English but the content is pure and good.
A Must Have  Sep 5, 2006
As a revert I am still learning how to pray. This wonderful book gives prayers right from the Psalms, Sermons from Saints, and Popes are also included. For anyone enrolled in the Brown Scapular in order to obtain the Sabbatine Privilege this prayer book is one of the requirements. This a book that should be passed down to all generations.
Alright, but there is better.  Dec 16, 2005
This edition of the Little Office of the B.V.M. is alright for those who are not picky about their devotions and want an easier form of the Divine Office (Liturgy of the Hours) to add to their existing daily prayers. Saying the Little Office is a time honored custom dating back to the Middle Ages. I am glad that this book is in print.

That being said I have to comment that I, personally, find the English in this edition a bit puerile and, quite frankly, unedifying. The language of structured prayer should be uplifting and should bring one to a higher level. I'm afraid I find this translation wanting in this regard. I am also not too fond of the removal of the hour 'Prime' from the Divine Office. I remember learning the hours as a child (mind you I'm only 29 years old) and it seems odd now to have one missing eventhough it went missing before I was born.

For those looking for a more traditional translation I would highly recommend the 1904 edition "Little Office of the B.V.M." by Father Lasance. It is bi-lingual (English & Latin) and is STILL IN PRINT by the St. Bonaventure Press. However, this site does NOT seem to carry this item so I recommend trying to order it at your local bookstore or from Aquinas & More Catholic Goods on-line. It must be said, though, that this printing has a few typographical errors and inconsistencies. The print, while not small, is also not that large.

For them best "modern" translation of the Little Office I recommen trying to find the 1944 edition of the Little Office of the B.V.M. printed by Franciscan Herald Press (now defunct.) It can easily be found at a local used bookstore or on-line. I have seen more than a few of them recently.

Deo optimo Maximo.
Wonderful resource!  Aug 3, 2005
For those who are looking to foster a time-honored devotion to the Virgin Mother of God, this book is for you. Drawn from the Liturgy of the Hours, the official prayer of the Church, The Little Office of the Blessed Virgin is a beautiful way of praising God, through and with His beloved creature, Mary.
