Manila, Philippines -- The Daily Alvaro

Two young Philippine computer programmers launched an application dedicated to Bishop Alvaro del Portillo. They named it Daily Alvaro, a program for mobile devices that has spread to 40 countries. Its creators planned to destine part of the income from the application to Saxum, a conference center in the Holy Land. The application has five facets: access to the prayer card of the future blessed, information on the miracle attributed to his intercession, news about the progress of the Saxum project, writings of Alvaro del Portillo, and a chronology of his life. The software also includes a system for feedback from its users.
