For Feast of Assumption, check out Mary App

Mary App

The Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary is a joyous feast in which to alert you to Mary App (Free) iOS [Android should follow] The Marian Fathers of the Immaculate Conception who brought you the Divine Mercy app have produced a full-resource Marian app that is one of the best in the marketplace. Our Blessed Mother is a big topic, so developers broke the subject of Our Lady into three categories: Doctrine (Church/Scriptural teachings about her and reasons for our devotion with FAQs); Devotion (including various prayers – audio rosary included- and feast days etc); and Mary Plus (images, pilgrimage sites, apparitions, etc.). As one reviewer put it, this app is really three great apps rolled into one. Why are apps like this important to have on your device? As the Fathers state on their web site: Mary’s whole task is to lead us closer to Jesus. The more we get to know her and have a fervent devotion to her, the better she can lead us to her Son. For this reason, the Second Vatican Council states, “Everyone should have a genuine devotion to [Mary] and entrust his life to her motherly care.”

It is painful to see that this only comes in iOS platform. Because the developers eventually created an Android version of their popular Divine Mercy app, it is assumed they will do the same for their Mary app. We pray.
