PORTLAND, Ore. – OCP announces the launch of its USCCB-approved Catholic missal app, Breaking the Bread 2022 eMissal, now available for download on Android and iOS smartphones and tablets. Instantly access music, readings and the order of Mass. Most missal apps do not provide music, but Breaking the Bread 2022 eMissal contains all the songs of the popular break bread Catholic missal. This year, the app also features exciting user experience enhancements and updates, including full readings for daily Mass, a new zoom feature, and a linked table of contents for easy navigation in the eMissal PDF. .
âThe ongoing pandemic has raised concerns that people are losing connection not only with the local parish community, but also with their faith and God himself,â said OCP editor Wade Wisler. âIn response, OCP is pleased to offer this easy-to-use Catholic missal application. Adding daily Mass readings allows people to practice lectio divina, or prayerful meditation, on the word of God every day of the week. This, in turn, helps us prepare and participate more fully in the liturgy. We hope that many people will discover and use this new practical resource, and thus strengthen their connection with the Lord.
Joy, an eMissal user from Most Pure Heart of Mary Church, said: âI find it easy to use and I like the way the user can add the hymns directly into the Mass schedule.â¦ I also use it for planning purposes. “
The Breaking the Bread 2022 eMissal app is a reliable and effective resource for the preparation of the Catholic Mass, active participation in the liturgy and for personal prayer and reflection. To learn more, visit ocp.org/breaking-bread-emissal.
