The Tweeting with GOD App
The free Tweeting with GOD app is a very useful tool for anyone who has questions about the faith. The app can also be used to great effect without the book. The app has four main features:
- an extensive list of questions and answers;
- a SCAN feature for users with access to the book;
- the standard texts of the Mass;
- and a treasury of Catholic prayers.
In addition, when you start the app, you will see a continually changing selection of interesting Questions [>Questions], helping you reflect every day. The app is available in multiple languages.

"One of the most advanced Catholic apps I have ever seen!" - Father Roderick Vonhögen, Trideo Media
When you have a free moment, you can use the app to have a quick ‘appetiser’ and search for the answers to a few burning questions. You don’t even need to have access to the book [>Resources>Book]. If you do have the book, the app brings the table of contents to life. Wherever you read the book – at home on the couch, on the train or anywhere else – the app helps you to browse quickly to find what really interests you. You can search for specific words in the text of the questions, or use the advanced search tool.
SCAN the book and find extra content
The Tweeting with GOD app also includes a SCAN feature which serves as the link between the question page in the book and the online content. Each question in the book is answered on a double page, and the app links the answer to the online information on this topic. The answers in the book are complete in themselves, but there is always more to learn and to discover than would fit on a double-page. The app is, therefore, an integral part of Tweeting with GOD.
The technique is simple:
- click on the SCAN icon in the app menu.
- position the camera over the image at the top left-hand side of each question in the book.
- The app then gives you an overview of the available information on this topic and provides suggestions for interesting questions to read.
A treasury of Catholic prayers
Prayer is very important, but it isn’t always easy. How do you start and what should you say? The Tweeting with GOD App has been specially designed to help you. Whether you are looking for ways to pray by yourself, or for example want to pray the Rosary with others in a foreign language, you will find the answer in the app. With this app, you can pray anytime, anywhere, even if you don’t know how!
A treasury of Catholic prayers
Prayer is very important, but it isn’t always easy. How do you start and what should you say? The #TwGOD app has been specially designed to help you. Whether you are looking for the right way to pray, or want to pray the Rosary with others in a foreign language, you will find the answer in the app. An overview of the different prayers in the app is provided below. The app also contains the main prayers that every priest must be able to refer to at any time. With this app you can pray anytime, anywhere, even if you don’t know how!
The prayers have been organised into seven icons:
Praying to the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. All three persons of the Trinity deserve your attention and want to pray for you. Under this icon, you will also find the great hymn of the Church, the Te Deum.
The Angelus and the Rosary. These are the two most important prayers we address to Mother Mary. Because they are often prayed daily, it is good to be able to join in with these prayers in many languages.
Praying with Holy Mary. There are many more prayers that we can address to Mary. In heaven, she is very close to Jesus and would like to bring your prayer before him.
Other prayers. Whether you want to pray for the dead, with the angels, because of remorse, or for another reason – in the app you can always find a suitable prayer.
Prayers from the Bible. The Bible contains many prayers. Some of these are included in the app.
Formulations of the Catholic faith. Together, these formulations give a brief overview of what we believe as Catholics. Much of the content of the faith is explained elsewhere in Tweeting with GOD.
Follow Mass anywhere
When you attend Catholic worship for the first time, you may wonder what is being said and what the correct responses are. Or perhaps you are in another country and want to go to church, but you don’t understand the language. The great advantage of the Catholic Mass – the Eucharist – is that it is virtually the same everywhere in the world. The Bible readings change every day, but the standard parts of the Mass are always the same.
The Tweeting with GOD App contains the standard prayers and responses of the Mass in many languages. You only need to bring your phone in order to participate in Mass, no matter where you are. The standard texts are organised into seven icons:
Introductory rites. After the sign of the Cross, we think for a moment about what we did right and wrong; we ask forgiveness for our sins, and return to God.
Liturgy of the Word. Now a section from the Bible is read. You will find these in the app, together with all the responses of the congregation during Mass.
Liturgy of the Eucharist. Then bread and wine are offered to God. The priest prays the preface, the introductory words to the Eucharistic Prayer. In the app you will find the three most frequently used Eucharistic Prayers.
Eucharistic Prayer I.
Eucharistic Prayer II.
Eucharistic Prayer III.
