First app I open each day!
This is a great resource to have. I open it to find out what day it is and what the fast is and also to read the saints lives and the appointed scripture readings. This app along with the Orthodox Prayerbook app are my daily bread. I love reading about each day's saint. Also the bible translation is very good and readable. Thanks so much for this.
A great resource for the Orthodox on the go!
I always open this app for the daily gospel, whether in the car or on the way to church. Very convenient, with the fast day status and saint day readily available. The section with the prayers is also very useful. A must have for the tech savvy Orthodox person.
Thank you for something a practical and useful as this app. I use it daily and derive spritual benefit from the daily Passages and Readings and also the Prayers. It also helps me follow the Fasts.
