Dominican Sister's Office Book

A reader of this blog was kind enough to send along this weblink for an online archive of the 1941 Dominican Sister's Office Book.

This is a wonderful little book, which contains the entire Little Office of the Blessed Virgin Mary for Dominicans, as well as meditations on the pslams, canticles, and hymns of the office.  Finally, it contains the propers for making a commemoration of each of the Dominican Saints and Blesseds throughout the liturgical year.

Anyone who is interested in viewing the book can do so by clicking on this link:



  1. Excellent. Thank you for this treasure.

  2. This is a truely remarkable book! I desperately want the 1961 edition of this. Do you know where I could find one?

    1. I had a shot at a 1950's vintage one on Ebay a few years ago, but I got outbid by a robo-bidder in the final few seconds of the bid. They are very rare. I do not know where you can purchase one today. If you are specific with ABE Books, and use their Advanced Search functions, you can eliminate reprints and hone in on originals. Good luck!

  3. Don't get it from ABE books from pursuing on demand. They use a PDF that has missing pages.
