Why I Love This Rosary
There are many reasons why I love this Rosary. For one, no matter what distractions may take place while I am praying or whether I doze or fall asleep during the rosary, this app will save my place for me so I will know where I left off snd can finish it. Otherwise, I often get discouraged or frustrated with not knowing where I left off, or I feel as I must have prayed 15 Hail Marys instead of the perfect 10. This becomes especially handy when I am praying during my cardio exercise on the elliptical. Second, it is always with me because my iPhone is always with me due my very busy life and the need to keep my calendar handy along with a way for so many people to be able to stay in touch with me. Third, no matter how many times I pray the rosary, it seems that I still cannot burn to memory all of the mysteries and fruits of the mysteries which make contemplation when praying the rosary so blessed, but with this app there is no need to memorize; the mysteries and fruits of the mysteries appear with each touch of a bead on this app. Fourth, the pictures and beads are so beautiful that it forms as another spiritual aid in meditation and contemplation during prayer. Fifth, this is the first time that I read why this rosary app was created, and now I am drawn even more to using this app to pray the rosary as often as I am able.
Get it. Know Christ through Mary
This app is awesome. No real mystery here (pardon the unintended pun). It's a rosary.
Easy, accurate, accessible. Has extras that are great.
What makes this awesome is why it was made. Just read it. I will do my best to keep your angel in our prayers.
This app, was a way for me to learn the rosary. I was drug through it by my wife. I was a catholic, but understood virtually nothing about God.
I have recently been touched by Hod. He's brought me closer, revealed Himself to me in, probably, very faint ways to His nature.
The conversion was complete and life changing. My life has never been the same.
I'm successful. Have more money than most will ever dream of. Still I was miserable. Now I have found God in every single aspect of our world.
So...it works. Keep your rosary close. Encourage your loved ones to join you. Make it fun for your kids.
We started the tradition of making a huge fire in an outdoor fireplace each night. Bringing out Our Lady and Crucifix with us.
(We do not worship the statue or Mary if there's anyone of another type of Christianity or religion looking for more dirt on Catholics)
Our kids are asleep by the end of the first decade, but they ask for it every night now.
They'll remember this stuff for a long time. They know the rosary and why we pray. They know God
They know our love for them.
Try it out
I love this app and have told many of my Catholic family & friends about it. I use it often but used it most during two surgeries & one exam under sedation for my daughter who was two years-old at her first surgery & just 4 at the latest. It brought me a great deal of comfort to be able to discreetly sit & pray the entire time and not draw attention to myself with my Rosary or cause others to fret over their own loved ones seeing me in such a deep state of prayer over mine. It just looked like I was reading on my phone. I also didn't have to worry I'd lose my precious Rosaries. The pictures are gorgeous and I love the way the app guides you thru the mysteries. I would love to see them add some other prayers as well. Overall I'm thrilled.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
