Stations of the Cross Apps
I wish I had this idea at the beginning of Lent, rather than the end. Better late than never. Here are all the apps I found that offer you the Stations of the Cross. Whenever we bear our own crosses and trials of life with patience and grace, we are travelling that lonely road with our Lord. He knows how it feels to be lonely, exhausted, mocked, and unloved.
We are never alone. The Stations of the Cross are a beautiful devotion to help us realize this.
Offers the Stations of the Cross with simple artwork, traditional prayers (including gospel quotes), and has a Spanish option. Simple and easy to use.
This Way of the Cross includes English and Latin versions, as well as the option to save stations as favorites. Also includes support that allows you to send a Station via e-mail or Facebook. This also has a children’s version. I think the children’s version is very beautiful and appropriate for young children. My only complaint is that the Stations for children do not include the traditional names of the Stations. However, I love the meditations:
“Show your heart to Jesus…ask Jesus to make your heart more like his. Maybe you want to ask Jesus to help you to remember that God is always with you.”
Originally I was not a big fan of this Stations of the Cross. I was expecting just to hear the Stations aloud in a traditional way. What MP3 Prayer offers instead is a dramatization of the Stations. It is actually very powerful. By the second station, I really began to enjoy the way the dramatization brought the Passion to life. I think this would be excellent for children.
Stations of the Cross meditations by Saint Francis of Assisi. Includes Our Father, Hail Mary, and Glory Be.
This app is simplicity itself. Beautiful depictions of the Stations, and simple prayers. Just lovely.
