You can check each day's Gospel. It also has reflections and meditations to share via social media.

The app has a special section for priests which includes ideas for sermons and personal meditations in MP3 format.

The "Lent 2015" application is only available in Spanish for now. However, English-speakers can use xt3.com for similar features.
