Take your prayer resources with you wherever you go.

August 5, 2011. A new iPhone application for Fr John Bartunek’s bestselling book of meditations, The Better Part: A Christ-centered Resource for Personal Prayer has made it that much easier to fit in a daily time of prayer and reflection on the Gospel.

Since the original book of meditations has over 1,000 pages, the application offers a practical way to stay plugged into prayer without having to carry the book around every day. 

Sold by Catholic Spiritual Direction for $0.99 through the Apple Store, the application gives users the option of going through each meditation of the book sequentially or according to the daily Mass readings.

The Better Part offers substantial, readable, and practical reflections on Gospel passages from each of the four Gospels. Each reflection is subdivided into four parts: Christ the Lord, Christ the Teacher, Christ the Friend, and Christ in My Life. The “Christ the Lord” sections focus on Christ as a model of how our will and attitudes should be, with practical guidance for action and behavior, while the “Christ the Teacher” segment offers theological teachings based on the Gospel passage. The “Christ the Friend” section gives a more affective, intimate view of Christ as a friend, and the “Christ in My Life” section offers a personal dialogue with the Lord.

With its combination of theological richness, accessibility, and practicality, The Better Part has been a favorite resource for thousands of readers. For those who prefer a more traditional approach, the book can be found on Amazon, and is also available in Kindle format.
