You can get free e-books containing the Liturgy of the Hours in Latin. The e-books include not just the General Calendar but all calendars known to Universalis. Each e-book contains every Hour for every day. Because this makes the e-books large, we divide each year into two halves. Do you prefer parallel Latin-English texts?

Posted by universalis on 13 October Universalis has had Latin available as an option for some time, but only as the Latin half of Latin-English parallel texts. Now we have created a Universalis e-book in Latin only. We will publish an e-book for before the beginning of The e-book is available in both Kindle format for the Amazon Kindle and ePub format for all other e-readers. This is because bizarrely Amazon and the other distributors refuse to distribute anything that is written in Latin.
Each hour is complete in itself. Everything will be there. There is no need to jump backwards and forwards as you would with a printed breviary. If an optional memorial falls on a particular day, you can view both the Office of the memorial and the Office of the feria. If a local calendar has a different celebration from the General Calendar, you have access to them both.
Here is a list of the calendars that Universalis knows about. Do download the e-book and try it out, and do recommend it to anyone you know who might find it useful. As well as actual e-readers, practically all mobile phones and tablets have software available that will read either the ePub or the Kindle format. You can view the Liturgy of the Hours in a parallel Latin-English version on the Universalis web site: here is an example.
All the Universalis apps can optionally display Latin and English together, as can any Universalis e-books you create for your own use.

Liturgy of the Hours
The Liturgy of the Hours Latin : Liturgia Horarum or Divine Office Latin: Officium Divinum or Work of God Latin: Opus Dei or canonical hours , [a] often referred to as the Breviary , [b] is the official set of prayers "marking the hours of each day and sanctifying the day with prayer". Together with the Mass , it constitutes the official public prayer life of the Church. The Liturgy of the Hours also forms the basis of prayer within Christian monasticism. Celebration of the Liturgy of the Hours is an obligation undertaken by priests and deacons intending to become priests, while deacons intending to remain deacons are obliged to recite only a part. The Liturgy of the Hours, along with the Eucharist , has formed part of the Church's public worship from the earliest times. Within the Latin Church , the present official form of the entire Liturgy of the Hours is that contained in the four-volume publication Liturgia Horarum , the first edition of which appeared in English translations were soon produced and were made official for their territories by the competent episcopal conferences.
