Description

Hallow offers guided prayer and meditation sessions to help us grow in our faith lives and find peace and stillness in God. Explore contemplative prayer and meditation sessions across: * Christian Meditation: finding peace in silence and imaginative prayer leveraging Catholic mindfulness practices * Examen: reflecting on your day and discovering an awareness of God in the present moment * Lectio Divina: entering into a conversation with God through scripture * Spiritual Writing: journaling with God, listening to Him, and sharing with Him what’s on your mind and heart * Taizé and Chant Meditation: meditative chant and singing with God * Rosary: meditating with Mary through the mysteries of the Rosary Today’s world is stressful, busy, hectic, and full of distractions. Society puts an insane amount of pressure on us and there seems to be a constantly increasing expectation to work harder, study more, respond faster, and perform better. At the same point in time, we’re increasingly searching for meaning, fulfillment, purpose, and growth within our spiritual lives. We believe these two challenges can be addressed with the same solution. Namely, through deepening our relationship with God and growing in Christian mindfulness. By allowing Him into our day-to-day lives and stresses, we let Him share with us His peace, joy and fulfillment. WHAT YOU GET Hallow’s intuitive, convenient and personalized experience begins with a 9-day introduction that guides you step-by-step through three different methods of prayer. After this, it’s up to you to choose from our collection of over 200 sessions across three different sections: Dailies: Daily prayers across methods including Christian Meditation, Lectio Divina, the Rosary, Spiritual Writing, and the Examen. Praylists: Sessions across a variety of prayer methods, all centered on one particular theme e.g., joy, humility, making decisions, calm, letting go. Challenges: Prayers usually focused on re-discovering the beauty within traditional prayers for example: the Our Father, Stations of the Cross, and Advent. In addition to the above sections, Hallow offers a number of features to help users customize their prayer experience: * Journal for users to capture their thoughts after every prayer * Choice between male and female guides * Options for 3 different lengths for every prayer (typically 5, 10, or 15 minutes) * Ability to set prayer reminders * Option to include calming background music in any session * Ability to download sessions for offline listening * Add Mindful Minutes to Apple Health app All of our content is developed by experience Catholic theology and spirituality guides and reviewed by senior leaders within the Church (e.g., PhD’s, professors, Bishops, authors).

  • Hallow has greatly improved how I pray!

    I’m not new to daily prayer but Hallow has made my prayer much more fruitful. The biggest change I’ve experienced is that before Hallow my mind tended to race and I rarely felt that my prayer was fruitful and I didn’t experience a lot of peace from prayer. Hallow has helped me focus my prayer and has made spending time with God a joy!

    I have tried various meditation apps and methods but for whatever reason I was not consistent. This manages to merge some of my daily habits which keeps me coming back. I look forward to using it everyday. Thank you

    Hallow is a respite, a peaceful and comforting place for me. I am able to focus and listen to what God has to say to me. It is indeed, truly, truly a profound gift.

    Hallow is an oasis in the vast desert of busyness, distraction, and self-focus. Time spent focused on the Eternal is time well spent. Hallow helps me spend a few minutes of intentional time with God which then impacts and improves the rest of my time. I am grateful.

    I’ve tried various secular meditation apps, but I felt like I was missing out on the beautiful meditative traditions in Catholicism. I tried to pursue these on my own, but it is so much easier with this app! And it has so much! Catholic mindfulness, Lectio Divina, Examen, the Rosary, the Divine Mercy Chaplet, Stations of the Cross, reflections on lives of the saints, so much! And it’s got a beautiful interface! Many Catholic apps have great content but are super clunky. This one is not like that at all. It gives you lots of customizable features and even has weekly goals and a tracker to help you develop a habit. Beautiful app! Really well done!!

    When I start my day, my mind is traveling 100 mph thinking about all the stuff that needs to be done. I’m lucky if I can pray for 5 minutes without giving up! With Halo, I crave doing more! My “promised 10 minutes of prayer” just turned into 30 minutes. I feel Christ’s presence in these moments ❤️
  • Love this app

    I am a very busy person and having audio chunks to listen to that guide me in prayer is so helpful. Sometimes I don’t have the wherewithal to sit down and read a prayer so this is so handy to have when I’m feeling stressed and need a mental/emotional break.
