Prayer Guide Par Excellence

The Universalis app has become a significant aid both in prayer and as a reference for when I’m writing about liturgical matters. The fact that the whole text for any day of the year, for any year, is included means that I don’t have to look elsewhere for the Mass readings, the Morning Prayer or a brief history of the saint of the day.

There are a few small variants from the official (and expensive) books, whether for the Liturgy of the Hours or for the Mass. Some clergy and religious complain, therefore, that they can't use Universalis to fulfill their Office obligation. But often these variations are more felicitous and faithful to the original Latin than the official renderings, and as a layman I find that worthwhile.
