Stations of the Cross Walk with Me

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
The Stations of the Cross are meant to strengthen and comfort us on our own journey through life, a journey in which Jesus invites us: “Walk with me.” This app provides a powerful experience of the stations:
- audio reflections, words of Jesus, and prayers
- two sets of beautiful images to choose from (one traditional and the other contemporary)
- the option to play the stations of the cross audio from beginning to end (perfect for praying the stations in the car or taking a walk)
- two 4 minute slideshows for praying the stations without words for a more contemplative experience or when you have just a few minutes and want to pray the stations.
- continue right where you left off if you get interrupted
From start to finish, the Stations are all about the passionate love the Lord Jesus has for each of us. We follow him in these Stations not as spectators, but as his disciples, those he has called by name to follow him.
The Stations of the Cross embody the Christian life in which we take up our own crosses and follow the Master. Discipleship is not so much what we do but who we are. The Stations give us comfort and support in our commitment to follow Jesus at all times and under any circumstances.
Disappointed--no printed prayers:(
Let me begin by saying that the illustrations were very beautiful and the narrator had a lovely voice. However, this app is basically an audiobook. I prefer to pray slowly and meditate on each Station. That is not possible with this app. None of the Stations are labeled (just the Roman numerals) and the appropriate prayers are not printed. All there is is a fast-paced audio track.
I would recommend that the Sisters take a look at the Divine Mercy app. There are virtual Rosary beads and you can pray the Chaplet at your own pace. There's a chime for each bead but you can mute it.
Better luck next time.
Very thought provoking!
I love this app. The narration is done well. You can move through the stations at your own speed and meditate and pray before you move to the next station. I feel that I am "there" when I pray the stations. I reach out and touch each picture...and can't begin to comprehend the mystery of God's love for us. Thank you Sisters...by the way I love your Rosary app as well...it's incredible too!
I love the app, and I'll gladly bump the rating up to 5 stars after one bug is fixed. It plays the audio on infinite loop. After the last station, it immediately begins again at the first station. There needs to be a way to deactivate this feature.
The prayers themselves are moving and thought-provoking, well worth the investment in the app.
