I’ve embedded the nifty iBreviary web app on a new page on the site, which can be used to peruse the daily offices of the Liturgy of the Hours, as well as the readings for the daily Liturgy of the Eucharist. The other content from the missal for Masses (Roman or Ambrosian rite) is also available at a click, though not integrated with the readings – not that anyone would be likely to be celebrating Mass with my website up in front of them, anyway. Another section displays an impressive selection of common prayers.
This is a really cool addition to the site, if I do say so myself. It could only be better if it were available as some kind of text feed I could style to match my site’s CSS. As it is, it lives in an iframe, which is essentially a window that embeds the content of another web site, and allows people to interact live with the other site through the window living in my page.
My deep gratitude to Don Paolo Padrini and the good folks at ibreviary.com for not only publishing this fabulous app, but allowing sites like mine to embed it. Besides the web app, they have apps available for iPhone, iPad, Blackberry, Android, as well as any WiFi device (Kindle, phone…) via a browser. All this available in English, Italian, Latin, French, and Spanish. Great stuff.
