Little Offices

Show Summary Details

Quick Reference

Originally these were very short offices, modelled on the Little Office of Our Lady, and intended for devotional use. In modern times the term has come to denote more elaborate (usually vernacular) forms of prayer, based on the Divine Office, and intended for corporate as well as individual use. These shortened offices were virtually superseded when the Divine Office was reordered in 1971.

Subjects: Christianity.
