App launched to encourage 16-25 year old Catholics to read Bible

by Cara Bentley

A statement from the Catholic Church said the app aims "to help you go deep with God, and build solid ground with Him through prayer, through the lives of the Saints, and Scripture".

There are daily prayers and "questions to prompt reflection", such as "What is the Gospel saying?"

The app also has a diary so users can write down their answers and thoughts to these questions and track their "growth".

In mind of its target audience, it also has a link to the Twitter feed of the Pope and the latest Roman Catholic news, including a monthly quiz and a guide to new retreats or latest prayer festivals.

The app was created by the National Office for Vocation of the Catholic Bishops' Conference for England and Wales.

A Monthly Gift Of $11 Makes A World Of Difference

In a world of fake news there’s never been a greater need for quality Christian journalism. Premier’s mission is to provide the Church with the most up to date and relevant news, told from a Christian perspective. But we can’t do it without you.

Unlike many websites we haven't put up a paywall — we want to keep our journalism free at the point of need and as open as we can. Premier’s news output takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. No one in the USA is sharing news like we are across radio, magazines and online so please help us to continue that today.

For a monthly gift of $11 or more we’d also be able to send you a free copy of the brand new Premier Bible, a wonderful Anglicised version of the NLT packed with exclusive bonus content, reading plan and resources to help you get the most out of scripture.

Your monthly support will make a world of difference. Thank you.
