Digital Lent

lectio divinaA couple of smartphone apps may appeal to some people as a way of entering more deeply into the Lenten season.  From the Diocese of Broken Bay in Australia, we have Lectio Divina, providing the texts for each days Mass readings, as well as reflections along the way, in an easily accessible format.

crs-ash wednesdayFor those looking for a more social justice oriented take on the season, look no further than the CRS Rice Bowl app from Catholic Relief Services.  The app offers stories of hope for those in need, a way to reach out to them, as well as a daily reflection rooted in a concern for the poor and needy.

Both apps are available for Android & Apple devices, from their respective stores, as well as at the links provided above.
