DGEMS (Daily Gospel eMessages) are Daily Gospel Reflections since April 2001 which helps us to find God in our daily living. We all need God to heal, reaffirm, inspire, empower, guide and give us renewed hope in our pains and joys of life.

The app contains the Gospel passage for the day, following the Catholic liturgical calendar, and also a short reflection written by Msgr Philip Heng, S.J. This app is an initiative of the Jesuit Prayer Ministry.

The short reflections are only 4-5 sentences long, making them suitable for busy people nowadays in a fast-paced environment.

If you wish, we can daily remind you to reflect on the Gospel through our app.

You can also adjust the font size according to your preference, by changing it in the settings screen or pinching the screen.

About Msgr Philip Heng, S.J.

Msgr Philip Heng, SJ is the present Parish Priest of the Jesuit run St Ignatius Church in Singapore. He is also the Vicar General of Archbishop William Goh in Administration, Finance, Religious, Ecumenism and Interreligious relations.

Deeper Relationship

This app gives me a daily dose of spiritual enhancement. Its reflections and gospel pointers can be related to everyday living, giving me explanations to better understand His words and reflect it to my own personal experience... It helps me to deepen my relationship with Him. Daily gems becomes my daily reminder that my faith can move me to be someone He wants me to be... 😊😇👍💕

A Good Guidance

A very excellent and helpful app. Whenever I need guidance from the Lord, I feel like he talks to me through the reflections and Gospel readings shown through this app everyday. And whenever I am a loss of words of what to say to God, this app allows me to say something more, to realize something, to realize that I do have some things to say. A very excellent, helpful, and meditative app. 👍🙌💗

Mobile God's word of the day.

Love this application because it gives an accurate Gospel of the day and it is readable with options in Settings. Sometimes it loads slow and it turns blank when opened but overall usage of this application is useful for everyday purposes and devotion.
