“The Divine Office is... the prayer not only of the clergy but of the whole People of God.”

Universalis is a missal and a breviary, and more besides. It gives you the Liturgy of the Hours (Divine Office) and the Mass for every day; plus valuable additional material.

The Catholic Calendar app lets you join in with the tens of thousands of people who use Universalis daily, through a free app plus a small monthly subscription of roughly $0.99 / £0.79 / €0.99 (the App Store will tell you the exact figure). If you prefer a single purchase instead of a monthly subscription, get the Universalis app instead of the Catholic Calendar app.

• The “About Today” page tells you what saints are being celebrated today, not only in your region but worldwide. It includes reflections and biographies.

• The Rosary with a verse of Scripture for every Hail Mary of every Mystery. Spoken audio is included if you want to listen to it.

• Daily Books takes selected spiritual classics and presents them in daily instalments to focus and enrich your prayer life.

Relative newbie

I am a protestant. He is looking for a way to deepen my Prayer life. This app seems to be the one to do that. It is a nice app, and I appreciate the free trial. I also appreciate that it accessible to the blind. I know that after the free trial, I am probably going to have to delete the app. I simply cannot afford a subscription or one time purchase. i’m blind disabled, and I can’t afford that kind of money. I’m on a fixed income, and after rent and bills. There’s nothing left for subscriptions of this kind. Or, even one time purchases of apps. It would be nice if there was a free version of this app somehow. Would use it daily if there was. Keep up the good work, and God is proud of you.

Church Calendar App, G-O-A-T!

In less than 10 days, the Church Calendar app has opened the doors for me to daily praying the DivineOffice/Liturgy of the Hours (DO/LH). Highlights for me (a non-techy) include:
Seamless integration between Functions and Features
Intuitive Use
And best of all - the app has made praying the DO/LH a daily reality rather than a spiritual goal I aspire to.
If you ever wanted to pray throughout the day with and as the Church prays, take the Church Calendar up on its 30 day free trial run (no gimmicks). Your personal prayer life will be rocked!

Daily Catholic Prayers

I originally bought the liturgy of the hours in book form and loved the little books !!! But my devotion waned as my life became complex, and when I tried to return to them, I couldn’t re-master the flipping back and forth and was never sure I was reading the right sections…. THIS! puts it all together, offers hymn and format choices, and helps me as I try to become more faithful in prayer. I love it !!!
