New technology bringing praying the breviary to IPhones is endorsed by the Vatican

Well, we don't know just what to think about this. Now the priest's breviary (a book of daily prayer), is available in an ITunes application that allows priests to download their prayers to their cellphones. But, it is apparently endorsed by the Holy Father and the Vatican Pontifical Council for Social Communication.

Clergy and religious have a canonical obligation to pray the Liturgy of the Hours as official representatives of the Church. St. John Vianney, patron saint of parish priests, is quoted as saying that daily prayer through the use of the breviary is one of the most solemn duties of priests. So, if this new technology helps, we guess that it's good. (Photo courtesy of
