Catholic Breviary on iPhone and iPad Touch.

God blesses you,from state of the art entertainment technology, the iPhone and iPod Touch are now becoming instruments of prayer and meditation thanks to the iBreviary, an application created by a parish priest from the Diocese of Tortona, Fr. Paolo Padrini."With a simple text on the touchpad of the iPhone or the iPod Touch, I have an application that brings me directly to the current day and gives me the opportunity to pray through the Catholic Breviary, with divided categories of Office of Readings, Lauds , Mid-day Prayer, Vespers, Compline. Besides this, I can always read the text in the usual way, or and in "rotating landscape" mode (which is a feature of iPhone), to browse the page of the Mass with the readings of the day and of course the other main Catholic prayers."The iBreviary is currently available in 6 languages, including Italian- in both Roman and Ambrosian rites, English, Latin, French and Spanish"With this, I can make my phone become a place and a means of prayer. Too often, we think of prayer as only a habitual act. I start to read a text and I finish reading a text. Prayer becomes reading. Instead, prayer should be a time when I encounter God in relationship. So, this tool isn't meant to merely reproduce a text for me, but to help me make a moment of prayer; it becomes a kind of parenthesis in the middle of my everyday life.""From a gadget to play with, to an instrument for instant, often simplistic and superficial relationships, to a tool that can become a kind of channel for entering the depths of prayer- which are the depths of relationship between God and man." www.dimix.it/ibreviary
