Living out Lent, with the help of a smartphone

2014-03-08

Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of Lent, and the archdiocese of Sydney launched a new app to help Christians live out this period of prayer and penance. It's called Xt3 Lent Calendar.

Users have full access to daily meditations and texts that prepare them for the arrival of Holy Week.

The app is free and available for iPhone, iPad and Android, but it can also be used with a computer.

It's not the first time the archdiocese of Sydney works with the University of Notre Dame in Australia- The two also created a phone app to prepare for Christmas.
