Illustration for article titled iPad Now Magical iand/i Holy Thanks to Digital Missal

iBreviary—the daily prayer book for iPhone—will become a full Roman missal for iPad, allowing priests to celebrate mass in English, French, Spanish, Italian, and Latin. The Vatican-sanctioned application, created Padre Paolo Padrini, includes:

• Texts of the Mass
• The readings of the Mass
• The breviary
• The stories of the saints
• The main Catholic prayers
• Rites of the Catholic celebrations (anointing of the sick, weddings, funerals, etc.)

I hope Padrini, a consultant with the Vatican's Pontifical Council for Social Communications, includes the tale of the Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch in the final version.

iBreviary for iPad will be available in July. [iBreviary]

That's awesome, but too bad the mass they're using is the Novus Ordo one which is a watered down, hippie version of the old mass.

I miss the good old times when the church wasn't afraid to criticize and talk about hellfire and brimstone. We've gone totally soft.

Gimmie the traditional Tridentine Latin rite anyday.
