Irondale, AL –
EWTN is launching a brand new app to help you prepare for Lent – and it’s available now! If you download our free app and take our “Daily Lenten Scripture Reading Challenge,” at the end of Lent, you will able to say that you read all four Gospels! It’s easier than you think!
You can download EWTN’s free app at www.ewtnapps.com/challenge or get it directly from iTunes, Google Play or Amazon apps for Kindle Fire. If you already have the EWTN app, the Scripture Challenge is included with the update.
To access the Challenge, simply open the app and click on the Bible icon, which will take you to your free RSV-CE Bible. From inside the Bible, click or tap on the menu (the three white bars on the top left hand corner of the screen), and from the resulting drop down menu, choose “Playlists” and then “The Four Gospels During Lent” to begin your Challenge.
In addition to the daily reading challenge, we’ve included a free audio version of the Gospel of Mark, which is read by world-renowned actors and contains realistic sound effects! (To find it, go to the menu, as above, click on “contents,” then “New Testament,” and then “Mark”, where you will be able to click on “download.") If you choose, you can purchase audio for the entire Bible for $19.99. This will not only enhance your experience, but help support your favorite Network!
Note: If this is your first time inside the EWTN app, don’t miss all the other great features. With this one app, you will be able to watch what’s on EWTN anywhere in the world, view all our program schedules, enjoy video or audio on demand, and stay up-to-date with EWTN News.
Insider secret! By the way, look for another new app featuring Cardinal Timothy Dolan, coming soon! EWTN traveled to the New York office of Cardinal Dolan to tape a series of one-minute reflections, which will air on the Network every day during Lent. You do not want to miss these fabulous bits of inspiration and encouragement – and, with our soon-to-be-released app – “EWTN Daily Lenten Reflections with Cardinal Timothy M. Dolan” – you will be able to get them directly on your iOS or Android device! You’ll even get a reminder to watch them! Keep checking EWTN’s home page, www.ewtn.com, for the announcement!
These are just two more (free!) ways EWTN is planning to help make 2014 your best Lent ever! Please spread the word!
