The Catholic meditation and prayer app, Hallow, is offering users a chance to pray with the cast of the popular series The Chosen.
The app’s offering includes having actor Jonathan Roumie, who plays the role of Jesus Christ in the series, read aloud passages from both the Old and the New Testaments as part of an Advent meditation. Many of Roumie’s co-stars from the series have joined him with the readings.
The Chosen has made history by being the biggest streaming Christian series with more than 400 million global views. The third season of the series is scheduled to release this holiday season.
Christian Headlines reports:
“I am thrilled to partner this year with Hallow, Jonathan [Roumie], and several of our amazing actors from The Chosen for Hallow’s Advent #Pray25 challenge,” the show’s creator, Dallas Jenkins, said of the challenge.
“This is a perfect time of year to be focused on prayer, for two reasons,” he added. “Number one, Season 3 of The Chosen is actually coming out this holiday season, so be sure to check that out. But number two, and by far a more important reason, this is the time of year that we focus on the birth of the man The Chosen is all about, Jesus Christ.”
According to ChurchLeaders.com, the actors participating in the challenge include George Harrison Xanthis (John the Evangelist), Elizabeth Tabish (Mary Magdalene), Paras Patel (Matthew), David Amito (John the Baptist) and Vanessa Benavente (Mary, the Mother of Jesus).
