CRS Rice Bowl is Catholic Relief Services’ Lenten faith-in-action program. Participants pray, fast, and give alms following Jesus’ call to serve the poor and vulnerable. Twenty-five percent of the Lenten alms are directed to programs fighting poverty in the United States and seventy-five percent support CRS’ humanitarian and emergency relief programs in 93 countries overseas.
What's New in Version 2.2.4
"Among our tasks as witnesses to the love of Christ is that of giving a voice to the cry of the poor, so that they are not abandoned to the laws of an economy that seems at times to treat people as mere consumers." - Pope Francis
During Lent our developers making app more convenient even on iPad's
This app is an amazing guide for reflection and giving during the season of Lent. I love the stories of hope as they show real people, and not through the lens of the mainstream media. My only critique is the layout of the app, which is acceptable but not completely intuitive. For example, I was looking for the reflections and did not realize they were categorized under Pray. My bad. Still, I give this 5 stars. Maybe there can be reflections even after the Easter season?
I find this app perfect for keeping up with daily reflections during Lent and it helps me remember the importance of giving to those around me. It also corresponds with my CRS rice bowl I got from my church, which is great!
Such a beautiful app, reminds you to not forget others around the world, help others in need and to love your neighbor. I'm really enjoying it everyday during Lent. God bless everyone! Amen🙏🏼
