To help young people whose daily lives are saturated with technological interactions to learn how to pray, the Vatican has launched a smart, smartphone-connected eRosary.

In 2019, phones, computers, watches and even microwaves are powered by smart technology, so why not a rosary too? On Tuesday, the Pope’s Worldwide Prayer Network launched a connected rosary designed to help people “pray for peace in the world” and contemplate the Gospel.

The eRosary Click To Pray can be worn like a bracelet and activated when the wearer (or holder) makes the sign of the cross. It can be synced with its companion app which gives users access to an audio guide, images, and “personalized Rosary prayer content.”

All the software is stored in a smart cross which is connected to ten rosary beads in black agate and hematite. With these, users can track different types of rosaries; The thematic rosaries will be available on the application throughout the year.

The Click To Pray eRosary is available for purchase today for €99 (P5,600 or $110). The companion app can be downloaded for free on iOS and Android. LVN
