Meditation app is aiming to keep prayer routines alive during summer vacation.

Hallow, the Catholic prayer and meditation app, launched on July 12 a 30-day Gospel challenge with Jonathan Roumie, the actor who plays Jesus in The Chosen.

Hallow’s Gospel challenge will guide listeners through all four Gospels in just 30 days.

Each day, Roumie narrates a few chapters of the Gospels for users to reflect on and meditate with.

Hallow is also offering a downloadable Study Guide for individual or group study of the Gospels to support reflection outside of prayer time. Users can also enjoy introductions and commentary for each Gospel from theologian and author Dr. Edward Sri, as well as speaker and biblical scholar Dr. Mary Healy. 

The challenge was designed with flexibility in mind. Each session covers a few chapters in about 20 minutes.

Listeners can pray at the same time each day with Hallow’s recently launched Routines functionality, or whenever they get the chance while on vacation or with family and friends. Overall, the Hallow team hopes this Gospel challenge reignites daily prayer routines this summer through listening and meditating on the Word of God. 

Partnership with Jonathan Roumie 

“Hallow has been transformative not only for me, but for so many others. There’s something for everyone – meditations, prayers, music, the saints – making it impossibly easy to pray more!” said Roumie 

Hallow has partnered with Jonathan Roumie several times in the past, including to record the Divine Mercy Chaplet, Sacred Heart Novena, and the Lord’s Prayer in Aramaic. Roumie is a trained narrator and experienced actor; his voice is described as captivating yet calming.

“We couldn’t be more excited about our partnership with Jonathan for this audio-guided experience of the Gospels. Our hope is that it helps people deepen their relationship with God,” said Hallow CEO & Co-Founder, Alex Jones. 

About Hallow 

The app has over 2,000 sessions including several novenas, the Rosary, daily Examens, litanies, music, Bible stories, Praylists focused on themes like love and humility, etc.
