Frequently Asked Questions

Personalisation options

Customisation of the prayer is possible with user registration. To access personalisation options click on the cogwheel or click here and register for an account. The background and fade speed of the pages can be changed and the font size of the text can be adjusted. There is a music option which can be turned on or off. Sometimes we experience there is a varying degree of responsiveness with the music between browsers and the music doesn't play automatically on mobile devices unless switched on using the pause/play button at the bottom of the screen.

The archive is searchable by Gospel (Matthew, Mark, Luke and John); by Sunday of the Year; or by Saint by Month. It is also possible to use the search box to search for any particular commentary or reference.
