We’re back today with a second helping of Tech Talk and a chance for you to win a majorly beautiful prize to make your Advent season even more special: the Magnificat Advent Companion.
I’ve been praying with Magnificat’s iOS app for over a year now and always look forward to my morning prayer time. During the Advent season, this very moderately priced Advent Companion is a true gift. Along with daily Advent reflections based upon the daily gospel, the Companion is packed with extra Advent goodies. One of my absolute favs are the two lovely Advent chants that can be played quietly in the background as you pray. Also included are an Advent penance service, prayers, stations, and the O Antiphons. Priced at only .99, this is the best dollar you will spend during the month of December. Lucky for you, today we are giving away five Magnificat Advent Companions for iOS. But hurry, this is a short contest designed to help you make the most of the app! a Rafflecopter giveaway
Here’s an official overview of the Magnificat Advent Companion:
MAGNIFICAT, publisher of the monthly Catholic worship aid, today announces the release of its popular Advent Companion booklet as a mobile app for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch as well as an eBook on Amazon Kindle, Barnes & Noble Nook and other electronic reading devices. The MAGNIFICAT Advent Companion is a spiritual guide designed to help people grow closer to Christ, day by day, during the liturgical season of Advent, with meditations from December 1 through Christmas Day. “Advent is the season of vigil. At the quiet heart of the busiest time of year, we keep watch in prayer for the signs of Christ’s coming to bring us peace, not in the past or in the future, but in our everyday world,” states a prayer in the Advent Companion. Edited by Father Peter John Cameron, O.P., editor-in-chief of MAGNIFICAT, the Advent Companion is read annually by more than 275,000 people. In both its print and digital formats, the issue follows a page-a-day format featuring original meditations on the daily Gospel readings by nineteen contemporary spiritual writers. It also offers a variety of blessings and essays, specially-commissioned poetry, a set of meditative prayers and antiphons, as well as a unique feature: “The Advent Stations: Office of the Ancestors of Christ.”
