My complete go to prayer companion

I have had the Word Among Us print editions for 20 years and have given many a gift subscription. It really does make a wonderful gift no matter the platform... I decided to get the digital subscription when COVID-19 changed the way we attend Mass. Since Missals would no longer be available in the pews, I wanted to be able to follow along on my tablet or smartphone. Not only does Word Among Us include daily scripture readings, it also has the Order of the Mass. The daily meditations are well written, and I look forward with great anticipation to reflecting on God’s word each day. If the app were the print copy, I would wear the cover right off every issue. I do wish there was a way to access the forum from the app. Currently, you have to go to the web version to participate in any discussions.

Developer Response ,

We can't thank you enough -- 20 years as a subscriber! Even more we thank you for your love of God and your devotion to daily prayer. Please accept my apology with regard to commenting only being available through a web browser. You're totally right. Please bear with us as we look for the best solution for everyone involved (some want us to continue with Facebook, others don't -- and still others don't want commenting at all -- as they find it distracting). We hope to find a good solution soon. God bless you and thank you for your support!

Daily readings

A lifelong Catholic, though I regularly attended Sunday Mass, I had spent little time reading and studying scripture. Started attending daily Mass when my son was deployed for six months to the Middle East four years ago I began each day reading the day’s scripture and summary thoughts before the service. I continued this practice after he safely returned home still finding it a good way to focus as I start my day. He leaves again this spring; I ask you all to remember them as you start your own day.

Update: Thankfully, he and his squadron mates returned safely from this latest deployment. My morning reading of the day’s Mass scriptures and reflections continue to help guide me through the day.

We will remember your son in prayer (I'll forward this to our intercessory prayer team). Because of the support of our print and digital subscribers, we are able to offer the digital edition of our magazine free to active duty service men and women (visit for more information). Available for Android as well. Please express our gratitude to your son for his service. God bless!

WAU starts my day!

I started reading the daily Mass readings and meditations as a Lenten practice several years ago. Now the first thing I do after I get up in the morning is take time to continue to do this. It has enriched my prayer life and the readings fill in the blanks between Sunday Mass scripture. The meditations are always appropriate for my life! On the weekends I take time to read the monthly reflections, conversion stories and Saint stories. I love it. I still read the paper print version, but when I forget it or cannot find it,I know I can count on this handy App!

That's great Diane! Thank you so much for posting this and your support over the years. God bless.
