The Magnificat Lent Companion app for iPhone is a rich Lenten resource that fits in your pocket. From the publishers of Magnificat magazine, this app contains all of the magazine’s content, plus bonus resources that print magazines cannot offer, such as Lent and Easter chants to use as background music for your prayer.
Launching the app brings you to the daily prayer section. Each day you will find morning, evening and night prayers that are abbreviated versions of the Liturgy of the Hours, as well as a Lenten meditation and full text of Mass readings, antiphons and prayers of the day. Selecting the “Order of Mass” tab at the bottom of the Mass page brings you to an index page for a full missal, so you’ll be able to read along with every prayer during Mass.
Extra features you’ll find in the app include:
- chants to use in your prayer during Lent and Easter, including the Stabat Mater and Regina Caeli
- Stations of the Cross
- Lenten penance service
- an alarm function for morning, noon and evening that you can customize to alert you to your scheduled prayer times
This app is for iOS only and displays beautifully on both iPhone and iPad. It sells for $1.99 in the App Store.
