Details: This Little Office of the Blessed Virgin Mary (Second Edition) contains the traditional Roman-use form of the office in both Latin and English. This particular version is prior to the breviary reform of Pope Pius X, but shares much in common with versions published for the Roman breviary after the 1911 reforms. The dual-column Latin and English text makes praying in either language easy. This book is 5.5 by 8.5 inches, allowing for a comfortably readable 12-point font, and this new edition eliminates the need to flip back and forth by providing the full text of the readings and prayers that are repeated at various hours each time they appear.

The Little Office of the Blessed Virgin Mary is an ancient way of praying the liturgical hours in addition to the practice of the Liturgy of the Hours. Indeed, for many busy laypeople, the Little Office may be a better way to fit the Divine Office's style of liturgical prayer into daily life on the way towards building up a habit of saying the Great Office of the Church.

The original text for this version of the Little Office was published in 1850 with the Imprimatur from Cardinal Archbishop Nicholas Wiseman. As a pre-Vatican II form of the Office, it observes all of the traditional liturgical hours: Matins (with three Nocturns), Lauds, Prime, Terce, Sext, None, Vespers, and Compline.
