Many people compare faithto a light. Now, thanks to a phone app named "Ignio”, thismetaphor can be a reality.

Through this virtualcandle, users can see their flame of faith either grow or diminish.It all depends on how often they pray for others, go to Mass or readthe Bible.

There are many ways tokeep this flame alive. For example, by meditating on a Gospel readingand sharing it.

You can also createvirtual prayer groups of up to 12 people. Depending on the userschoices, the app's virtual flame becomes bigger or smaller.

The goal of the "Ignio”app is to create an online spiritual community that allows for areal-time connection through prayer.

The app is available inEnglish for iOS and Android smartphones.
