Prie en Chemin was born just two years ago, in Lent 2017. On the occasion of this anniversary, a brief look back at this new digital nugget created by Jesuits in the service of the Word of God.

Encouraged by the success of "Pray as you go" or "Rezando Voy", Benoît WILLEMAERS and I embarked on the adventure of a daily guided prayer podcast, joined from the beginning by Dominique ZEIER, a young lay person working part-time on the project.

With the arrival in early 2019 of a new website and brand new applications, the idea came to celebrate the two years of Prayer on the Way with the aim of bringing together its various actors: meditation writers, musicians, readers, users. We met in small groups of four or five people to see what improvements could be desirable, what dreams we could envisage for Prayer on the Way.

Here are some of the highlighted  pearls: "Prie en chemin is regular and faithful. It's just the right duration and it's balanced. Prie en chemin is to listen to a treasure in the subway. What a quality of music, beautiful voices, varied and soothing. At the same time, we talked about technical improvements, the wish to have a meditation on Saturday and the very next "spiritual kits" (and to start with "the prayer of the covenant", "preparing for the sacrament of reconciliation" or "praying in time of mourning"). Other new features will be the collections of thematic prayers to come, such as the psalms. Finally, we have other projects in the USB keyboards: "Pray on the Junior Way" to pray with the family on the weekend, or a meditation to take with you on the way to Santiago.

In terms of numbers, the application has more than 15,000 users. The site registered more than 7,000 users in February.

It is really heart-warming to see so many people nourishing themselves with the Word of God every day, opening their ears and hearts to what gives meaning to life. Happy birthday “Prie en chemin”!
