Prayer Companion Designed for Poor Clares

    By Jeremy Monday, July 12, 2010

    The Interaction Design Studio of Goldsmiths, University of London has designed the "Prayer Companion". An RSS Feed, news-ticker of sorts that streams across up to the minute headlines to the Nuns in St. Joseph's Monastery in York. The display faces up and is designed to be unobtrusive and minimally distracting. Headlines are thereby only viewed if looking at the Prayer Companion from a short distance, directly overhead.

    The Sisters will use the Prayer Companion to pray for the people they read about in the headlines. Much like today's monastic monks who are in continuous prayer for those that live in the world and act as our intercessors.

    First of all, then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for all people.

    (1 Timothy 2:1)

    Very cool use of technology to bring glory to God! :)
