Nov 26, About Today for Thursday of the 34th week of Ordinary Time

O give thanks to the Lord, call on his name, make known his deeds among the peoples. Sing to him, sing praises to him; tell of all his wonderful works. – Psalm 105:1-2

Dear community,

By the grace of God, Divine Office Ministry has reached an agreement with The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) by which we receive a License to use their 1970 edition of the New American Bible for the next 3 years. The Divine Office has passed an audit and has satisfied all licensor claims which means USCCB has approved the use of our work by all Catholics in the United States.

The pressing news is that this License is conditional upon payment of past due royalties and audit fees by the end of December 2020. The amount we have to cover in a short time is $57.000.

Your past and present recurring contributions have been allowing us to keep up with the hosting expenses, maintenance and production of this work. Your current effort to help will cover the license expenses and will allow us to invest in a much needed update to the look, feel and functionality of our website.

With the full blessing of the Church and your support we can focus once again on our mission to bring the Liturgy of the Hours to more people and especially to the elderly, those with disabilities, those who mourn and need the comfort of a prayer community.

You can make a One Time or a Recurring Contribution using the forms on our website.

Let us offer thanks and praise to God for the manifold blessings that continue to nourish our faith and enhance our community despite a difficult year for all of us.

In thanksgiving for God’s blessings,
The Divine Office Team
