"Every day at seven in the morning there appears a photo of a priest or seminarian who is currently in school. They come from everywhere. And there's a short message that says, 'Today, pray for...' And it has their name and a few words about where they're from and what they're doing.”

The application is completely free. It's only available in Spanish currently but an English version will be released soon.
