DGEMS (Daily Gospel eMessages) are Daily Gospel Reflections since April 2001 which helps us to find God in our daily living. We all need God to heal, reaffirm, inspire, empower, guide and give us renewed hope in our pains and joys of life.

The app contains the Gospel passage for the day, following the Catholic liturgical calendar, and also a short reflection written by Msgr Philip Heng, S.J. This app is an initiative of the Jesuit Prayer Ministry.

The short reflections are only 4-5 sentences long, making them suitable for busy people nowadays in a fast-paced environment.

If you wish, we can daily remind you to reflect on the Gospel through our app.

You can also adjust the font size according to your preference, by changing it in the settings screen or pinching the screen.

About Msgr Philip Heng, S.J.

Msgr Philip Heng, SJ is the present Parish Priest of the Jesuit run St Ignatius Church in Singapore. He is also the Vicar General of Archbishop William Goh in Administration, Finance, Religious, Ecumenism and Interreligious relations.

Very Thankful for The Daily Gospel

Thank you very much for the inspiring daily Gospel.
It's like a daily vitamin for our souls. I have shared with many friends who are busy people like you and myself. It is a very important app for me especially when I am on a business trip. A very wonderful companion.
We found in today's secular world that no matter how busy one is, it is a good reminder
for us to have some quiet time to reflect on the daily Gospel and spend time with God and be grateful for what we have. Once again , thank you and it is much appreciated . 🙏👍👏👏👏👏👏

Joyful Readings

A way to read daily readings in the Mass and understand it better through the well-written & practical reflections. Wish the archives can show one whole year :)
