Ratings and Reviews
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!
A profound blessing, of great measure...
I would wish to speak to anyone, who might be reading through these reviews, while considering the purchase of this app: DO NOT MISS THE AMAZINGLY GENEROUS AMOUNT OF MATERIAL, MADE AVAILABLE FOR US, BY THE DEVELOPERS OF THIS APPLICATION! After 30+ years as a Reformed Protestant, I have, for the last 10 months, been a student of the Doctrine and Teachings, of the Catholic Church. To my delight and surprise, the apps I've found for the iPhone, relating to that study, have provided a stunning amount of supplemental resources, in support of my RCIA process. To anyone who carries a desire, in their heart and mind, to have their Faith, better formed within them--do not hesitate to make the purchase of this app, towards that end. And may I say, to the developers, by means of your labor, you are contributing to the changes His Spirit makes, in the hearts of men. For it is only as Faith is formed, that freedom is won, hearts are lifted, and minds are made able to receive wisdom and understanding, leaving individuals, marriages, and families, forever changed. From the bottom of my heart, thank you for the contribution you have made to my journey of Faith. May Our Lord bless you, and your families.
Best Catholic App out there!
This app is the most resource rich Catholic app out there. Jam packed with resources: the Bible and reading tools, endless writings from the saints, papal documents, commentaries, Catholic Encyclopedia, Catechisms, The Novus Ordo Calendar along with the Traditional Calendar and Mass & readings seamlessly integrated into the app. It has hundreds of prayers and hymns and enables you to pray the Divine Office. I can’t help but shill for this app it’s too good to be free. You can read all of Augustine’s published works and Aquinas’ summa. You will not regret having this app, it is a NECESSARY tool in any Catholic’s App Library!
Love it and all the updates!
