Abroad, Aug. 7. The iBreviary app now offers Salesian 'proper' liturgies for the IOS (iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch). It will soon be made available for smart phones and other Android devices. A brainchild of Fr Paolo Padrini - parish priest of San Giorgio in Stazzano, the app is promoted by the Custodia Terrae Sanctae and the Pro Terra Sancta Association in association with the Social Communications department.
Either by downloading or updating iBreviary, one can activate Salesian Proper Liturgies during the setting up of the app. On the appropriate days in the Salesian liturgical calendar, the app provides special texts for the Liturgy of the Hours and the Eucharist. It is available from the Apple Store  and on , with user instructions, in Italian, English and French.

Fr Filiberto Gonzalez (General Councillor for Social Communications) says: ''The commitment of the Department, especially ANS, to produce an app with Salesian Proper Liturgies arises from a conviction based on faith and our charism: celebrating the presence of God in human history, seeking to follow the Son of God who became flesh to make present the love of the Father, and offering young people an experience of prayer which is intimate, simple and joyous as they communicate daily with God.''

Fr Paolo Padrini, has been associated with the Pope2You project of the Pontifical Council for Social Communications and is a Church Communications consultant.

The project has been pioneered as part of the preparations for the bicentenary of Don Bosco's birth.

A young Salesian says ''this is the way forward. it will also perhaps eliminate having an additional book.'' Another iPhone-totting Salesian says ''I've not yet tried it out, but it sure sounds fantastic.'' Yet another exclaims excitedly ''I don't have an iPhone or iPod, but I'm waiting for the Android app. It will be of tremendous use at camps.''
