Using the Daily Mass Readings in prayer can be a bit of a chore when you don’t have a missal handy. For this app, I simple ask Siri “Open Daily Readings” and up it comes, with todays readings. It would be great if Siri would read them to me, but I thin that is asking a a bit much.
You can’t select, and copy the text either, which is fine, it is just for reading. You can double tap on any word and ask for a definition. The iOS dictionary in iOS 9 is pretty good. For example double tapping on Solomon, and asking for a definition, it brought up what most dictionaries would have on ‘Solomon’.
Daily Mass Readings 2018 also incorporates a guide on the books of the Bible and their abbreviations. That’s handy, because I always get a bit confused with DT, MN, JDT, this is handy, and just as simply presented.
