The Little Office is Now Available on Amazon

Little Office Print

I’m pleased to announce that The Little Office of the Blessed Sophia is now available on Amazon.com, and can be purchased here. Just in time for Christmas, this 150 page book of hours features:

  • a complete calendar
  • instructions and rubrics for praying alone or with a group
  • the Ordinary of the Little Office (the regular prayers to be said each day) consisting of Matins, Lauds, Diurnum, Vespers, and Compline
  • Lessons for both the Penitential Seasons (Advent & Lent), as well as Lessons to be used throughout the rest of the year
  • the Book of Odes, with the Odes of Solomon arranged according to a 3-day cycle
  • Commemorations for the feast days over 100 saints, as well as other high holy days
  • an Office of the Dead

Modeled after the Little Office of the Blessed Virgin Mary but with Gnostics in mind, this book is designed to both honor the Most Holy Sophia, and to elevate our consciousness to the Divine Light through a daily cycle of prayer. It is my hope that this book will become an important part of your prayer life, enriching your devotional practice.

Here are a couple of sample pages, to give you an idea of what the book looks like. (I do apologize for the poor quality of the photos!)

The beginning of the Office of Vespers, prayed in the evening around sunset.

    I purchased the hardcover version on Lulu.

    • Excellent! You’ll have to tell me how the dust jacket turns out — I haven’t be able to preview the hardcover yet, so I didn’t really advertise that edition. I’m considering redesigning the cover on that one a bit, as Lulu makes cover design far more difficult than it needs to be.

        Noted.

        I hope the cover turns out alright, too, but even if not, I’ll realistically use it without the dust jacket, at any rate. I will let you know.
