Pope gives tech spin to his prayer


The 82-year-old Bishop of Rome is probably more tech-oriented than you are!

Pope Francis has made his own user for the Click to Pray app, the official app of the Pope’s Worldwide Prayer Network, which spreads the monthly prayer intentions of the pope, including through the Pope Video.

Click To Pray is a platform to accompany the pope in a mission of “compassion for the world.”

Available on the web and as an app in six languages, it has three main sections:

Pray With the Pope, with the pope’s monthly prayer intentions

Pray Every Day, with a prayer for three moments of the day

Pray With the Network, a space where users (Pope Francis among them) can share their prayers with others.

Pope Francis’ own profile can be found clicking on the Pope Francis button at the “Pray with the Network” section.

Click To Pray is the official prayer platform for World Youth Day 2019, which will be held this week in Panama. Pope Francis arrives to the country on Wednesday.
