Ratings and Reviews
Best Prayer Book Ever!!!
I used to buy the Pieta Book by the case to give out to friends and family and to leave in the church Narthex for other parishioners, but when I got poor, I had to stop that practice. This app is even better than the book!!! I have loved it for as long as it’s been available (and the Pieta Book for over a quarter century)!!! It may seem a tad expensive for an app, but I assure you it is well worth every penny!!! God willing I’ll get caught up financially someday and be able to distribute the book again. I promise you...this app is the best if you want a more prayerful life!!! Those who feel they’ve been overlooked by the Lord...try some of the prayers this app has to offer. I can honestly say I have seen the workings of Our Lord in my life as a result of the prayers in this app. I don’t think you’ll be disappointed!!! Pay particular attention to the prayers of St Bridget and the promises attached!!!! May God Bless you all!!!
Put your faith in your pocket.
I never read the Bible but this app takes care of that by allowing you to make use of it wherever you are. I went to the app tonight while searching for comfort and understanding about my daughter who is suffering from severe depression. With this app, support of your faith is on demand. I should only use it more.
In this world where fewer people practice their faith and modern culture is influencing values, I believe the lord works in ways like this app to reach out to us. Never before has any kind of information been so accessible. There’s even an app called Mass Times which makes finding a church and mass easy wherever you are in the world!
As a side note, I am editing this review after writing the first paragraph over a year ago. When I looked up the app to send to my daughter, I had forgotten I wrote that review. It’s well over a year and many prayers later that I write this updated review with the blessed news that my daughter is doing well after deciding to seek help. When I learned that she is praying daily, I thought that I’d send her this app to help her.
Her recovery has strengthened my faith for which this app has been such a convenient help. With all my heart I believe my prayers have been answered and for that I am forever grateful.
The lord certainly works in mysterious ways!
Developer Response ,
Thank you for the heart-warming review. Our small team does not check reviews enough; but this review brings much consolation. I will try to keep remembering the iPieta users in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass as well as ALL - and that really means ALL in the wonderful Mercy of God!!!! - who contribute in any way to make this kindness happen! And ALL souls!!! May all experience the mercy of our Lord!
For Laity, Brotherhood/Sisterhood, or Priests - MY FAVORITE CATHOLIC APP!
This will be your TOP go-to app.
A truly sensational reference app that seems to provide almost all basic, intermediary, and top revenues used the Church.
I find that I highly rely on this app more and more. From bible references to calendaring, from Saintly references to the Baltimore Catechism, and a Lectionary and Mass directive - plus MORE.
It is well updated and revised, and appears to host accurate and APPROVED materials.
Also I would like to give a “shout-out” of thanks to the developers and company - on a job well done. Developers that we guided by the kind hand of God.
