USERS OF the new iBreviary application can now follow the daily prayer of the Church, using an iPhone.
Since the application was made available at the beginning of December there have been 8,000 downloads. Just before Christmas the Vatican’s Council for Social Com munications approved of the applica tion, making it the first iPhone application to be approved by the Holy See. A spokesman said the application “allows the believer to pray simply via an intuitive interface”. The service is free of charge from iTunes and includes the complete Roman Missal and the main Catholic prayers.
The Vatican under Pope Benedict XVI has been quick to embrace the benefits of the digital revolution.
