Traditional Roman Breviary – Breviarium Meum: for the iPad for the iPhone and iPod touch
Traditional Roman Breviary can also be downloaded as an application on your mobile device, it is called BrevMeum. Breviarium Meum allows you to pray the traditional (1962) Latin breviary of the Catholic Church wherever you go. Just pull out your iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad, select the hour to pray, and begin. You can download the texts up to a week in advance, so you can pray even when you don’t have a network connection. So if you’re on a mountain top making a retreat, or down in a valley to celebrate Mass in an isolated village, you can still keep up with the office, even if you left your printed breviary at home.
Are you unfamiliar with the old breviary? It’s a part of your heritage, and one that you have a right to know about and experience. As the instruction Universae Ecclesiae reaffirms, one goal of the motu proprio Summorum Pontificum was to offer “to all the faithful the Roman Liturgy in the Usus Antiquior, considered as a precious treasure to be preserved” (8a).
This app is the easiest way to pray the breviary. It gives you all the texts in order, so you don’t have to flip back and forth as you would with a printed breviary. If the text is too small, you can make it bigger. If you don’t understand the Latin, you can display a parallel English translation.
Those more familiar with the breviary, and especially priests, will be pleased to see we’ve included a selection of prayers and blessings in Latin, such as are normally found in the appendix of a breviary.
