The Vatican has officially embraced a new digital version of the Breviary (the book of daily prayers) that is available via Apple’s iPhone. The program, or “app” is entitled iBreviary, and was created by Reverend Paolo Padrini.

After Padrini told Vatican officials that technologies such as the iPhone are already used widely by the church, the so-called “Pontifical Council for Social Communications” approved the father’s creation.


Now Catholics, including ranking members of the church can conveniently view the Breviary in “Italian, English, Spanish, French and Latin”. The app costs just over $1USD and has already sold 10,000 copies.
