How to read the Divine Office in Malagasy

Posted by universalis on 27 August 2020

Here are instructions for getting Universalis and reading it in Malagasy. I apologise for this post being in English, but it is best to use the language one knows best!

If you already have the Universalis or Catholic Calendar app: Follow the instructions below.

Otherwise: You need Catholic Calendar. You can get it here. It is free.

  1. Open the app.
  2. Tap on the text in the middle of the screen, and a toolbar will appear at the top.
  3. On the right-hand side of the toolbar there is a cog-wheel. Tap it.
  4. The “Settings” screen will appear. It is divided into sections. In the section headed “Liturgy of the Hours”, the first setting says “Language”. Tap on it, and you will see a list of languages. Tap on “Malagasy Only”.
  5. If “Malagasy Only” is not offered as a language, then here is how to update your app.

Catholic Calendar normally asks for a subscription to make it work (after a trial period), but if you select “Malagasy Only” then the Liturgy of the Hours pages will work without needing a subscription.
