Gave my Faith Back

After forty years away, This little app brought me back to the Catholic Church. Each morning, I arose early and the first thing I did was open this app and read what the His Holiness had been doing with joy. I used this as my devotional.

Now there is a blank screen. I do not know why, but I only hope that the lack of updates is not caused by the twisted use of social media by a few misguided others.


Great but a problem

Great, but when seeing the twitter add on window, if you view the popes tweets, and go to retweet it with your own account it always exceeds the character limit.... maybe due to the picture that is automatically added by your app? I cannot manage to fix it. Please correct this.


What the Pope actually said

I can’t find any source to go easily to read the Pope’s actually homilies and addresses. The old Pope App had the tab “Words of the Pope”, which was the only thing I used it for. There are a million sources if I wanted to read Pope Francis reported on or summarized. (Which he really doesn’t need anyways.) What doesn’t exist is one where I can go directly to what he said, and if it’s not the Vatican app, then where?
