Happy Christmas



I hope everyone is having a blessed Christmas season and that your resolutions for the New Year bring great graces! Three of the us are going to the FAITH conference at Stonyhurst, and one to the Youth 2000 New Year's retreat in London, so between us all we're covering some ground... At home I'm trying to make a crib set with my family, which can be added to year by year and which will be based in our town, so it will include some of those people who are known to the town or to our family, as well as all the biblical personages. It should be great fun! However, we've already had a schism, as different family members seem to be working from different scales, and so the crib sets are beginning to rival one another...

I'd like to offer this story on my application that brings the prayer on iPhone.
I believe that prayer is Christian and Catholic from spreading. You wonder why you can publish the news and if you can spread it to your friends on the blog.

thanks

Vatican. iBreviary: Church pray with iPhone

Dear Sirs,
Editing and Friends of iBreviary,

iBreviary, as you know, it's a new application for iPhone,
available from immediately in Spanish, French, English, Latin and Italian.
iBreviary offers the possibility, in a simple way and in a perfect "Apple
style", to pray in mobility with the prayer of the Breviary.
It offers besides the readings of the Mass of the Day (Missal), as well as the
principal Catholic prayers.
The application, realized by me together with the technician and
developer Dimitri Giani, has got the applause and the encouragement
of the Vatican.

iBreviary has now reached its third updating.
This updating brings important changes:
- available application in version Italian and English
- available readings in English, French, Spanish, Latin and in Ambrosian Rite
- possibility to pray with the Compieta of the previous day
- new dress graphics
- possibility to increase the size of the characters
- possibility of use in formed "landscape" rotating the iPhone
- page of explanation about the use of the Breviary
- fix of some bugs

The application is available inside the app store to the price of
support for the developers of 0,79 cents (Euro).

Besides, also Facebook will have his "digital Breviary". Its name is
"Praybook" and it's an available application on the most important social
network of the world.
The application allows to pray on line with the same prayers of iBreviary.

Thanks for everything.
