"To publish Catholic journals and place them in the hands of honest men is not enough. It is necessary to spread them as far as possible that they may be read by all, and especially by those whom Christian charity demands we should tear away from the poisonous sources of evil literature." –Pope St. Pius X

Does anybody know where a version of the the Little Office of the BVM Dominican rite can be found? I am particularly searching for one that has the added prayers to St. Mary Magdalen and St. Catherine of Sienna in it at vespers.


The Church Music Association of America has a nice scan of the Libellus Precum ad usum fratrum S. ordis prædicatorem. The Officium B. Mariæ Virginis begins on p. 9. I didn't see any prayer within vespers to St. Catherine or St. Mary Magdalen, but there is a separate Oratio ad S. Catharinam Senensem on p. 141.

This appears to be the English translation:



Also, there's Angelus Press's bilingual Little Office of the Blessed Virgin Mary and the Office of the Dead (270 pp.) and Baronius Press's bilingual The Little Office of the Blessed Virgin Mary (5th ed.) (236 pp.).
