I’ll be speaking about the world of Catholic apps LIVE August 15 on Radio Maria (U.S.) during the program, Carmelite Conversations. Hosted by Mark Danis and Frances Harry, this weekly program centers on Carmelite Spirituality and its application to our daily lives. It airs at 7pm Eastern Standard Time and lasts one hour. While we will talk about mobile apps that aid Carmelite daily devotions and practices, we will focus on Catholic apps in general and how they can help Catholics/Christians keep in touch with and develop their faith life.

It is based in Rome with Catholic priests serving as directors of its various networks which are run by volunteers. Developers note that programing is aimed at promoting “the evangelical message of joy and hope, becoming a tool to console the sick and the poor, according to the teaching of the magisterium of the Catholic Church; with a clear and rich Marian spirituality. [Radio Maria] promotes…the action of peace and promotion of human values, above all in the developing countries.” Choose from among many countries of origin with Catholic programing in a variety of languages. Once the app is downloaded, simply open and choose the country/language you wish to listen to.
