EWTN adds Lenten scripture challenge to app

.- The EWTN Global Catholic Network has launched a new feature to the EWTN application that challenges its users to read the four Gospels during Lent.

Reading all four gospels is “easier than you think!” the network said in a March 3 statement.

EWTN’s free app now includes the Daily Lenten Scripture Reading Challenge feature. The app is presently available for iPhone and iPad, Android operating systems and the Amazon Kindle Fire. Those who have already installed the EWTN app will receive the feature in an update.

The app includes a free full-text Bible in the Revised Standard Version-Catholic Edition. The app’s new Lenten Challenge feature is available in the app’s Bible subsection, where users can select from the menu a playlist that will guide them through the four Gospels during Lent.

Also included is a free audio version of the Gospel of Mark, provided by the Truth & Life Audio Bible. The full audio New Testament, available through an in-app purchase of $19.99, is voiced by actors such as Neal McDonough, Stacy Keach, Kristen Bell, Sean Astin, Michael York, Blair Underwood, Malcolm McDowell, Julia Ormond and John Rhys-Davies. It includes realistic sound effects.

The EWTN app also allows users to view EWTN from anywhere in the world, look up program schedules, access video or audio on demand, and read EWTN News.

The app is available directly from iTunes, Google Play or Amazon apps for Kindle Fire. More information is available at the website http://www.ewtnapps.com/challenge.

EWTN said that it will soon release a new app of one-minute Lenten reflections from Cardinal Timothy M. Dolan of New York.
