The Liturgy of the Hours (Divine Office) of the Catholic Church is the richest single Christian prayer resource, with daily changing prayers, psalms and readings for the seven Hours of each day, from early morning to late at night. The Universalis app makes the Hours accessible to everyone, not just specialists: because as a Vatican document says, The Office is the prayer not only of the clergy but of the whole People of God.

With Universalis you can make regular times for spiritual refreshment, or just dip in briefly when an opportunity arises. Universalis is not only lighter than a book and far easier to use, it is also discreet: nobody needs to know you are doing it.

Universalis also contains the Gospel and the other readings at Mass for each day, and this is what we have chosen to present in the Apple Watch app. The Gospel on your wrist is one step closer to the Gospel in your heart; and it's always just a touch away.

Universalis was started in 1995 to harness new technologies in the service of spirituality. The Universalis app for the iPhone was in the App Store on launch day in July 2008. The iPad version was there when the iPad launched, so we are delighted to be able to continue the tradition by being ready for the Apple Watch before deliveries start. As well as the iOS app, there are Universalis programs and apps for Mac, Windows and Android, e-books in ePub and Kindle format, and a daily email service. A week's worth of content is also available for free on our web site and there is a daily Twitter feed at @CatholicFeasts.
