Its primary function is lets users search for the nearest Holy Mass, confessional or diocesanal statistics. Reports say that the app uses technology by software firm Musemantik to direct the faithful from their current location to the nearest Catholic Church.
Cushley is hopeful that everyone is going to the use the app, it being a spiritual and practical experience. This is in time for Pope Francis’ so-called Extraordinary Year of Jubilee.
The Edinburgh archbishop describes it to be a “smart bit of technology” that could impact “how the Catholic Church brings the mercy of God and the joy of the Gospel to our contemporary world.”
