A mobile application that sends a daily prayer via text message

2016-05-14


It is not easy to find a different prayer everyday, but the mobile application 'Mi vida en Xto,' which means 'My life in Christ,' can vary the way in which one goes to God.

A simple key stroke allows the mobile device to remember a specific time to send the daily prayer. The prayer consists of a text with an opening prayer, a penitential act, a Bible reading, a brief spiritual reading, a personal meditation and the consecration to the Virgin.

This Spanish application also offers a weekly reflection on virtues written by the theologian Kenneth Pierce.

As Sunday is a special day in the Catholic Church, you can access another article that reflects on the Gospel of the most important Mass of the week.

'Mi vida en Xto' also has a presence on Twitter, where followers are informed of latest publications, and on its website, where you can pray and read the reflections with ease.

While this application is only available in Spanish, Laudate, a free Catholic app, also offers similar services in English.
