Dominican Little Office of the BVM and Other Prayers for LayTertiaries
Through the kindness of one of our readers I can now make available a volume printed by the Order in 1962 of which I was ignorant. In that year the Dominican General Curia in Rome published the Dominican Prayer Book, fourth edition. It not only has the Little Office in Latin and English in parallel columns, but also sections of music, devotional prayers, litanies, the Office of the Dead, Penitential Psalms, and so forth. Many of these are also in Latin-English parallel columns. POTENTIAL PURCHASERS SHOULD NOT THAT BECAUSE THEY WERE LACKING IN THE PDF SUPPLIED TO ME PAGES 166 TO 267, PRAYERS TO DOMINICAN SAINTS ARE LACKING IN THIS REPRINT.
This volume was intended especially for the members of the "Dominican Third Order Secular" (Laity) and the "Dominican Third Order Regular (Active Sisters), but I think it would also be welcomed by our friars and cloistered nuns.
Copies are available for purchase at Dominican Liturgy Publications. Although the scans are good, I urge those interested to view the preview first and decide if the quality meets your needs.
