It is now possible to contact a priest from anywhere, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
“Amen App” is a free, simple, and geo-localized tool that serves as a bridge between laity and priests with a click of a button. It is a Catholic app to contact priests for help and advice.
“You have many resources in one application. You can find the Gospel of the day, the saint of the day, positive comments and reflections, hundreds of reflections, a tool to search for churches and much more.”
The creators of the “Amen App” want to help people find God in the virtual universe. However, one of their main goals is to reach places of our planet where finding a priest is difficult.
“It is especially significant for Christians living in countries where Christianity is persecuted. We also thought of the people who have difficulty with mobility, the elderly, or those who go on vacation and want to go to Mass but can't find a church nearby. During the pandemic, we're thinking of all the people who are forced to stay at home.'
App developers are currently looking for priests who would like to join this project so that they can help people from all corners of the world.
“Amen App” is available in English, Spanish, Portuguese, French and Italian. It can be downloaded for Android and iPhone operating systems.
