Electric Prayer

The Liturgy of the Hours, the Mass, and other things.

Malayalam: Android

This is part of a series of posts about the Malayalam project on Universalis.

Getting Universalis for Android

There are two apps, Universalis (£9.99 / Rs. 820) and Catholic Calendar (free).

If you already have Universalis, use it.

If you don’t already have Universalis, get Catholic Calendar. It is free, and it is all you need to view the pages for Holy Week.

Catholic Calendar is free. Either search your chosen app store for “Catholic Calendar from Universalis”, or use one of these links:

How to select Malayalam

  1. Open the app.
  2. Open the menu by tapping on the Android menu button, which is normally three dots at the top right of the screen. If you have trouble finding it, please see the instructions.
  3. In the menu, select “Settings”..
  4. In the Settings screen, look under “Extra Languages” for the “Order of Mass” item. Tap on it.
  5. In the list of languages, select either “Malayalam and English” or “Malayalam only”.

Full operating instructions are here.

Note on fonts: Android systems vary, and some of them may not have a good Malayalam font. It would be useful for us to know which devices do, and which devices do not, display Malayalam adequately, so please leave a comment to tell us. Please give the full and exact name of the device, and (if possible) the version of Android it uses.

Available Malayalam content

  • The Order of Mass page.
  • The Readings at Mass page for Holy Week and Easter Sunday.
  • The Mass Today page for Holy Week and Easter Sunday. The Mass Today page combines the Order of Mass with the prayers, antiphons and readings of the day.

On days outside this period, the readings at Mass will be blank if you have selected a Malayalam option.
