 Product Description

The Divine Office for Dodos provides instruction using bookmarks and ribbons. Instructions on how to construct these are in the book. However, many people wish to have a pre-made set. Therefore, the Confraternity of Penitents has made available a sturdy, flexible plastic, pre-printed bookmark and eight differently colored ribbon set to accompany The Divine Office for Dodos.
* Sixteen bookmarks printed with black ink on white, waterproof, flexible, virtually indestructible plastic. Pre-printed on two sides with prayer endings and instructions for praying the Divine Office and coded with artwork to help you find your place in the Office by sight.
* Eight differently colored ribbons on a sturdy cardboard spine which will fit into the spine of your breviary. Each ribbon marks a special part of the Divine Office.
Read part of the Introduction to The Divine Office for Dodos:
Hi! Let's start with a secret.
You're not a dodo! Not only do you not have a hooked beak and fluffy gray feathers, you're even pretty smart! . I mean, you know how to tie your shoe laces, brush your teeth, and set an alarm clock, don't you?
But, seriously, you really do know a good deal about many things, but the Divine Office isn't one of them. Regarding the Divine Office, you might be a bit confused. Maybe more than a bit. Probably also frustrated. And maybe a little angry. You want to become a holier person. Someone told you that praying the Divine Office would be a nudge in that direction. Maybe they even tried to help you. Maybe they gave you some instructions to read. But you can't understand what to do! So you feel like a dodo.
Here's another secret.
You aren't alone!
Most folks who try to pray the Divine Office experience just what you are experiencing. Confusion. Frustration. Anger.
There's hope in these pages. You really are going to learn to pray the Divine Office. Honest! Then you'll join the ranks of other clergy, religious, and laity, some of whom are non-Catholic, who pray the Divine Office every day.
Maybe you already know that the Divine Office is the official, formal prayer of the Church that was written to pray throughout the day. When you pray the Divine Office, your prayers are united with those who are praying the very same prayers around the world. Great graces come from such communal prayers. Maybe you knew that, too, but isn't that something!
You might be wondering about me. How did I learn to pray the Divine Office? Well, I cheated. I had help you probably don't have. In order to prepare to write a book about St. Clare of Assisi, I stayed for a week with a convent of Poor Clares. One of the sweet sisters was assigned to me to help me with the Divine Office. She very patiently took this dodo under her wing and showed me each office (and the sisters prayed all seven offices in the Divine Office) and how to pray it and where to find it. By the time the week was up, I had practiced fifty offices and knew what I was doing. If you can find a convent of Poor Clares to stay with for a week, then you won't need this book. But, if you can't, then Divine Office for Dodos* is your next best bet.
Praying the Divine Office as Part of a Rule of Life
So who prays the Divine Office? Clergy and religious do. So do lay people who belong to certain Third Orders and Associations. So do other lay people who just want to pray this prayer of the Church daily. Doesn't matter which category you fall into. This book will help you.
Review by Susan S:
"The ribbons and bookmarks are remarkably helpful in learning how to read the Divine Office everyday.  I had the Christian Prayer book  for 19 years. I recently bought the four- volume Set. It was confusing at first. I recommend the book and these ribbons and bookmarks for anyone who wants to figure out how to read the Divine Office."

  1. Exactly as described

    Posted by Bill E on 15th Nov 2018

    These are exactly as described in the book (DOfD) and so a little larger than I was expecting (note to self - READ the description), but I hope will be just what I need, and will also transfer to the large-print version in due course. Also very impressed that there were no extra postal charges for postage outside USA.

  2. To new to know

    Posted by Julia on 1st Oct 2018

    I am just beginning RCIA, and had recently ordered the Dodo's book to help me in my study. I was certain the bookmarks and ribbons would be essential to make the most of the book.
    The ribbon quality was dissapointing, very narrow.
    The bookmarks are interesting. But I haven't had time to apply them to use yet. They are good quality card stock.
    The delivery time was fast! That was a delight.

  3. Great Product

  4. I am working through the book. I have hope that my frustrations will abate.

    Thank you for your efforts to help more people with the Divine Office. I have the 4 volume set and almost wanted to quit, but I didn't. I pray alone so only God knows all my mistakes and He will address them as He wills.
    Thank You again for the book and ribbons. Blessings for you and your Ministry. Darlene

  9. extremely useful and fit for purpose

    Posted by frá Ugo Er. Dio on 19th Apr 2017

    The ribbons are great, enough to cover the various sections of my Breviary (I use the Carthusian Diurnale) insert tabs a slightly too long but can be cut down. Good quality. Highly recommended

  10. Exactly what I was looking for

    Posted by Michelle Chamberlain on 20th Nov 2016

    The set of ribbons are a great length (others tend to be too short) and variety of colors. Just the right amount for each section in the breviary.
