The Universalis apps and programs give you more than the website does, and they don’t require an Internet connection.

You can get a free trial of everything for a month. After that, you can choose whether you want to buy. You can get individual apps for your phone or tablet (it’s about £10), or a single registration code which covers all your phones, tablets, computers, and e-books.

The spoken word

In the apps, you can get all the Mass readings and all the Hours spoken in English, right through, every day. You need a subscription for these, but you can listen to a free sample before deciding, and the first month of each subscription is free.

Read all about it here.

The sung word

Sung Latin Compline is also available for purchase in the apps. It isn’t expensive. Read all about it and listen to samples.


You can create e-books for your e-book reader (including the Amazon Kindle), and there are some ready-made ones you can buy as well. They cover the Mass or the Hours for every day within a given period. Here are the full details.
