TwGOD app: Follow Mass anywhere
When you attend Catholic worship for the first time, you may wonder what is being said and what the correct responses are. Or perhaps you are in another country and want to go to church, but you don’t understand the language. The great advantage of the Catholic Mass – the Eucharist – is that it is virtually the same everywhere in the world. The Bible readings change every day, but the standard parts of the Mass are always the same.
The Tweeting with GOD App contains the standard prayers and responses of the Mass in many languages. You only need to bring your phone in order to participate in Mass, no matter where you are. The standard texts are organised into seven icons:
- Introductory rites. After the sign of the Cross, we think for a moment about what we did right and wrong; we ask forgiveness for our sins, and return to God.
- Liturgy of the Word. Now a section from the Bible is read. You will find these in the app, together with all the responses of the congregation during Mass.
- Liturgy of the Eucharist. Then bread and wine are offered to God. The priest prays the preface, the introductory words to the Eucharistic Prayer. In the app you will find the three most frequently used Eucharistic Prayers.
- Eucharistic Prayer I.
- Eucharistic Prayer II.
- Eucharistic Prayer III.
- Communion and concluding rites. After the Our Father and some other prayers, Catholics receive the Body of Jesus in Communion. The liturgy is concluded with a blessing by the priest.
