Passion of Jesus app 50% off through Ash Wednesday

You have between now and Ash Wednesday (February 10) to purchase the Passion of Jesus app for half price. This sale is offered by its developer, Benedict Xavier, to encourage the devotion during the season of Lent. The ingenious app ($1.39) iOS and Android is designed to help you develop a tender daily devotion to Jesus Christ and his passion by engaging you–in real time–in the last 24 hours of His life. So, you will walk with Our Lord as the events unfolded on that last day. As you can imagine, that real-time engagement is a creative way to increase the impact of the devotion.

Here’s how it works: The events are put in sequence as found in Scripture and Sacred Tradition and, based on your local time, these precious moments are served to your device in the form of a respective passion image, a corresponding reflection (based on the collective writings of Saint Alphonsus de Ligouri), response and suggested prayer intentions. This passion timeline unfolds over a 24-hour period, but you can change this to other timelines to accommodate your schedule– 8 hours, 1 hour and 30 minutes.  Benedict Xavier notes:

“The primary goal of this reflection is to engage believers to ponder and reflect on each aspect of the Passion by allowing time and eternity to intersect, by allowing the power of the cross to pour into our daily lives, no matter where we are or what we are doing….for a few moments, to pause and cast a glance at our Lord and permit this awesome, life-changing reality to bear fruit, to illumine, to set free and to save.”

Also included with this app are

  • Way of the Cross by St. Alphonsus Liguori
  • Way of the Cross through Mary’s eyes

Take a look at how the app works.
