Plug for Universalis App

(Note: I will be absent from the Men’s Prayer Group on September 6th and 13th (My 75th birthday) so, if any one or more of you will email me information on the meetings those mornings I will appreciate it and will compose a blog post for this website based on it.

The Universalis App ( on any computer)

I am enjoying use of the Universalis App on my phone. It cost $10 or so but automatically brings up the full Liturgy of the Hours plus Mass Readings and Mass and an About Today page. Today the About Today explains Saturday memorials of the Blessed Virgin Mary and then, in the category of Other Saints, a brief bio of Blessed Dominic Barberi (1792-1849) who was famous for bringing Anglicans into full communion with the Catholic Church, the most famous being John Henry Newman about whom Father Linsky spoke on Wednesday and whose book on Mary I have ordered. Here is a screen shot of that information in the App today.

This is just a plug for buying and using the App if you don’t already have one you are happy with. Use of the App reminds me that praying is more about listening than about speaking.

The “Our Father” with context from the New American Bible, Revised Edition.

[c]In praying, do not babble like the pagans, who think that they will be heard because of their many words.[d] Do not be like them. Your Father knows what you need before you ask him.

The Lord’s Prayer. [e]“This is how you are to pray:

Our Father in heaven,[f]
    hallowed be your name,
10     your kingdom come,[g]
    your will be done,
        on earth as in heaven.
11     [h]Give us today our daily bread;
12     and forgive us our debts,[i]
        as we forgive our debtors;
13     and do not subject us to the final test,[j]
        but deliver us from the evil one.


14 [k]If you forgive others their transgressions, your heavenly Father will forgive you. 15 But if you do not forgive others, neither will your Father forgive your transgressions.

Comments and Authors

I should add that any of you are free to add comments to any posts on this blog. If you have trouble doing that, let me know and we will figure it out. And, if you want to be added as an Author, creating your own posts, we can figure out how to do that also. (I just haven’t done it before.)
