Presented in a day-by-day format, the Magnificat App puts at your fingertips a treasury of beautiful prayers. Each day includes morning, evening, and night prayers inspired by the Liturgy of the Hours; readings and prayers of each daily Mass; daily meditations drawn from the best writings of the Church Fathers as well as recent spiritual masters; and essays on the lives of the saints from yesterday and today.
Like the hundreds of thousands already reading and praying with Magnificat, this unique App will accompany and enrich your daily prayer life.

New version is big improvement


The new version is a big update and works more smoothly on the current iOS. My favorite improvements are the ability to increase the font size and the way this version shows off the beautiful Magnificat magazine cover when you open the app. Just tap on the small part of the cover image and it increases to full screen. Two of the best things about Magnificat have always been the beautiful cover and the daily meditations. (Otherwise the full version of Universalis would be an alternative to Magnificat, but it lacks these features.) I do wish this Magnificat app made the articles more visible- they are buried as one of a zillion things under "Other Features". Ah well, nothing compares to the print version.

Forever downloads

Pete 21675

We really have enjoyed this for a year or two but since the upgrade we can't get it because the operating system we have is 9 something . We ask to download an older version that is compatible an it promptly gives notice that it is downloading, please wait. And we wait, and we wait, and we wait. It never stops.

HELP I can get it at Magnificat online. Com,and the new scroll format is great, and it appears that is what this app might show. But we are still stuck with forever downloading. Except now it stops, says error downloading, touch to retry. Retried seven times, no luck, it would be nice to get it again on the iPad. HELP

Thank you for solving the problem! The new format is great! Five stars now that we can use it again!

Daily Morning Spiritual Kickstarter


The first thing I do every morning when I get up is go to the Magnificat morning prayers. The Magnificat is perfect those of us who do not have time for the Liturgy of the Hours but want to pray with the rest of the Church daily. I find the Magnificat prayers a perfect way to start and end my day. They are uplifting helpful, they are not too long or too short but just right. The meditations are often inspiring. It is great to have the daily Mass reading to study before Mass, when I cannot get to Mass or even after Mass sometimes when I want to revisit them. I've already subscribed to the paper addition for about 10 years and that is what I use for Mass, but the rest of the time I like use it on my iPad.
