Digital App Encourages Rosary Reflection
New Tool Allows Shared Prayer via Social Networks
SOUTH BEND, Ind. – Little i Apps, LLC, makers of Confession: A Roman Catholic App, is proud to announce their collaboration with Our Sunday Visitor in the development of The Rosary of the Hours, an app that helps Catholics pray the Rosary “around the clock,” whereby a decade, with its own special theme, may be prayed for each of the twenty-four hours of the day and prayers and intentions can then be shared on social networks like Facebook and Twitter.
Little i Apps developed The Rosary of the Hours to include the full, original text of the original devotional of the same name, as well as a convenient reminder system that can be customized to fit the users schedule. The app provides a simple and inspirational method of sanctifying every hour. Specially chosen prayers from the Psalms, beautiful meditations gleaned from the popes, and Scripture passages for further meditation are available to inspire and comfort, whatever the time, day or night. Users can even post to Facebook and Twitter about their prayers, intentions and devotions, allowing Catholics to pray both for and with the Universal Church in a new way.
“It was an incredible opportunity for Little i Apps to take part in this project with Our Sunday Visitor. We look forward to seeing the Catholic community embrace the meditation, prayer and social networking that the Rosary of the Hours encourages,” says Patrick Leinen, co-founder of Little i Apps. “Our Sunday Visitor has created an incredible tool for those seeking deeper prayer in the Rosary. We are excited to see Catholics open to combining technology and spirituality!”
The Rosary of the Hours is available for $.99 on the iTunes Store.
