Developed by the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese Department of Internet Ministries, there is no better way to carry the Church's prescribed Scripture and devotional readings with you at all times.
* Fixed bug that prevented some time-appropriate prayers to show up on the main screen.
Ratings and Reviews
Helps Me Be A Better Greek Orthodox
Having been raised in a devout, strict Greek Orthodox home I left the church for many years until my first daughter was born. I reluctantly began attending services regularly, then gradually matured to appreciate, understand,then love our Lord and church traditions.
This app provides me solace, comfort and encouragement to best serve others while expanding my understanding of prayer for life events and daily worship.
The app does contain a flaw that is truly bothersome. Each prayer ends with "content is under copyright and used with permission, all rights reserved"...few words to the app developers or those that believe they own any aspect of our church - each word and prayer emanates from a bible that is a gift to all with an open copyright for anyone to copy or share or distribute.
Thank you for sharing the Lord's work!
A Great App For Any Orthodox Christian
This app is a wonderful resource for Orthodox Christians, especially in the USA. The highlights of this app are its daily scripture readings, as well as the Synaxarion (saints of the day). Many of the glitches, such as the updating problem in later versions, have been fixed. In terms of anything wrong or missing from the app, nothing seems to be glaringly obvious. This is a great app, and since it is free, why not get it? Every Orthodox Christian with an iOS device should get this app.
I think this application is awesome. Not only does it give you the scripture and epistle for the day, but it also gives you information about fasting and saints of the day. Totally cool! The format is simple and easy to use! The colors and graphics are also pleasant. You can look ahead or back to days you've missed using the cool calendar option too! What an awesome application! :)
