This is the iPhone version of Breviarium Meum, which allows you to pray the traditional (1962 or earlier) Latin breviary of the Catholic Church wherever you go. You can download the texts up to a week in advance, so you can pray even when you don't have a network connection. A parallel translation of the breviary (English, Danish*, French, German, Hungarian, Italian, Polish, Portuguese*, or Spanish) and a collection of Latin prayers and blessings are also included. Select the background color and text size you prefer.
Use Breviarium Meum HD instead on iPad.
Pray the breviary you know in a new way, or get to know for the first time the Roman Liturgy in the Usus Antiquior, considered by Summorum Pontificum a precious treasure to be preserved and made accessible to all the faithful.
• The Danish and Portuguese translations are still incomplete. Several languages lack a translation of the martyrology. An English translation is used for those portions of the office not available in the selected language.
• Full screen display of the Divine Office and other texts
• Danish and Portuguese translations of the Divine Office. These are currently incomplete.
• Dominican Office—currently only Compline works properly
• Colors have been adjusted to meet WCAG accessibility standards
• Various other improvements and bug fixes
Ratings and Reviews
This is an excellent app and the most useful for learning the Old Office. Even if you have books, this is a useful tool for beginners to check that their ribbons are placed correctly. I once thought there was error and contacted the developer who was quick to respond. May God bless those who maintain this app!
I like this application very much. I was close to giving it five stars, but there are a few tweaks that ought to be made, I think, and I sincerely hope that the developers take my suggestions.
First: add blank likes to the end of each hour. The last line is hidden by the menu on iOS and, though the last line is not necessary to see, it does make for a small distraction.
Second: add markers that tell if an hour is complete or not. This would help the user to easily see where he is in his progress. The markers should be activated either manually in the list of hours, or automatically, after the user has scrolled through all the text of the hour.
Lastly: having the ability to automatically download several weeks of the office at a time would be great.
But overall it is a great app and one that I do not at all regret downloading.
Been using the website and phone app for ages to compare versions and pray during Lent. Can't wait to see the next update with formatting for iPad screens.
