There's an app for that!

In a world of instant communication and social networking, it is increasingly hard for us (or me, anyway) to find time for prayer and reflection. With so much "noise" going on around us, we need to make an effort to draw our spirituality into our daily life. So whether you are waiting in the doctor's office or for your car to get an oil change, there's a Catholic app for that!

Catholics are now in the game and developers have been releasing various apps for iPhones and the like to meet Catholics where they are and aid them in their daily pursuit of prayer. From your iPhone you can now pray the rosary, read the daily Scriptures or pray the Divine Office. There are also seasonal apps for Catholics so they may pray the Stations of the Cross or follow the Liturgical calendar.

A quick Google search and one will find a growing list of apps for Catholics and Christians and it is just another way we can blend our technology with our faith to make our daily spiritual experience richer.

So the next time you find yourself waiting, maybe instead of opening up a new game of solitaire or backgammon, check our your provider's app store to see what your other options are. Because don't forget, there's an app for that!
