There are twenty mysteries reflected upon in the Rosary, and these are divided into the five JOYFUL MYSTERIES, the five SORROWFUL MYSTERIES, the five GLORIOUS MYSTERIES, and the five LUMINOUS MYSTERIES. The App will automatically offer to play the appropriate mystery based on the day of the week. You also have the opportunity manually to play and pray any of the mysteries.
In the winter of 2010, this statue of the Virgin Mary was found, broken in half, lying next to a dumpster, because she was being thrown away. The man who found this holy statue rescued her and took her home.
Dirty, chipped and broken in half, Our Blessed Mother was put together again. The man who repaired her requested that she be painted and have her broken hands mended. He wanted to make her new again and perfect. But the man who found her simply said, “No, she is broken, just like me. We all are broken and in need of repair. She represents the broken.”
Everyone can join in with the recitation of the rosary daily by using the technology here. Simply select the day, recite the rosary and meditate at home, during a work break, or ride or walk. There is comfort in prayer, through the sacred rosary.
The complete story of Broken Mary is included in the in app.

Great app—needs one fix, though
This is a great app for guidance when praying the rosary. Kevin Matthews’ voice is very calming and comforting. Saw him last night at a presentation of his book, “Broken Mary,” which I love so much! The only thing that I wish the developer, Ed, would fix is to ensure that the rosary does not stop if my iPhone display goes to sleep. It is disconcerting to either change the settings or to have to keep touching my phone every couple of minutes. I especially love typing a prayer into the app, and seeing the reassurance that my prayer has been heard! I was very grateful to be able to see and touch the Broken Mary statue. If you haven’t yet read this book, you should!
I really enjoy this app. It's great if you just started to pray the rosary and gives you guidance on how it's done, like myself. It's a great way to pray with this app.
Great app but needs a few fixes
1. App turns off when phone goes to sleep
2. Would be nice to have a timer feature. I like to end my day with the rosary and would be nice to have it turnoff automatically when finished (while phone is in sleep mode)
