Actor Liam Neeson has recorded an Advent series for the devotional app, Hallow, featuring several readings from renowned Christian author C.S. Lewis, 60 years after his death.
In a trail for the series, Neeson described the app, which offers Catholic liturgy as well as recorded devotions as a "great prayer and meditation app", and said the content was "pretty incredible".
"There's everything from growing in faith, to what it means to love, to how we're called to learn to let go."
He said the Christmas and Advent challenge was to "help us really grow deeper in our faith in this holiday season."
The award winning actor grew up as a Catholic, in the mainly Protestant town of Ballymena in County Antrim. He is the voice of Aslan in The Chronicles of Narnia series, although he is often better known for his grittier roles in films such as Taken and Gangs of New York.
In the 2003 star-studded romantic comedy Love Actually, which is often shown during the Christmas season, Neeson plays a bereaved father who talks poignantly about marriage, love and loss with his young son, before his character embarks on the dating scene again.
Neeson also starred in Scorsese's religious epic Silence (2016), and has appeared in other highly-rated religiously-themed films including The Mission , about the experiences of a Jesuit missionary in 18th-century South America.
He was appointed Officer of the Order of the British Empire (OBE) in 2000.
