Ratings and Reviews
One of the best Stations of the Cross
I truly like to meditate on these Stations of the Cross prayers. I love listening to the audio version because it was done quite well. I'm planning to share it with my Catholic friends. Please consider doing other chaplets as well (i.e., the Chaplet of the Precious Blood; the Chaplet of the Seven Sorrows, etc.).
Such a great and helpful tool.
Sorry but needs work
You cannot run this app in background so screen is always on and drains battery. Also once phone goes to sleep app stops
Takes too long to go through all stations and the voice is too quite and to monotone
