Priests for Life Announce Pro-Life Liturgical iPhone App

August 19, 2010

STATEN ISLAND, NY (LifeSiteNews.com) — Priests for Life has announced a new app for iPhone and iPad, giving priests easy access to three sets of resources to help them preach, teach, and pray about the pro-life message with their congregations.

The first resource is a set of General Intercessions, or “Prayers of the Faithful,” for the Mass, composed according to the guidelines set by the Catholic Church and including a petition for the growth of the culture of life.

The second is a short snippet of text, drawn from Church documents, statements by bishops, or statements by popes, that can be included in a parish bulletin to educate the congregation about pro-life issues and to exhort them to take part in pro-life activities.

Finally, the app also provides pro-life homily hints based on the readings for that particular Sunday.  They are meant to help priests connect the Biblical themes of love, justice, and mercy to the issues of abortion, euthanasia, and other threats to human life and dignity. The app provides information for each Sunday of the year during all three liturgical cycles. 

The resources were written by Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, based on his experience of preaching about abortion and euthanasia.

The app may be found by looking up “pro-life” or “Priests for Life” on the iTunes store.  It costs $1.99.

All of the resources that it contains may also be found for free on the Priests for Life website.  Priests may subscribe to weekly emails at [email protected]; the emails arrive eight to nine days before the Sunday for which they were designed.
