One of the resources I look forward to each Advent is the Magnificat Advent Companion app. Like the Magnificat magazine, the app features daily Morning, Evening and Night Prayers, along with the readings and prayers for each day’s Mass and an Advent meditation.
But the app also boasts features you won’t find in any print magazine, such as chants for Advent. And since it’s on your smartphone or tablet, you can take it with you wherever you go.
Among other Advent resources you’ll find in this app are blessings for your Advent wreath, nativity scene, and Christmas tree, and a guide to praying the O Antiphons.
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 an Advent 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.
