Rosary app designed to help you concentrate

Sometimes it’s difficult to concentrate while praying the Rosary. Can I get an “Amen”?! Four Mysteries Online Rosary (FREE) focuses on just that dilemma by turning each virtual bead on your device’s screen into a different image that relates to the mystery you’re praying. Looking at images that literally change with each bead holds your imagination in check like crazy.

It is stunning how well this works to hold your attention! And the images are all from exquisite works of art. No cartoons or those ugly, dated Oregon Press woodblock cuts. Along with each photo-bead, you get a different Scripture verse too.

The Resurrection beads, for example, all display a variety of aspects of Christ’s resurrection including from the point of view of other people or even the angels. To advance the beads, simply swipe horizontally, so it works equally well for right or left-handers.

This app is NOT a classic download because it works strictly online. Skip going to an App Store. Simply trot over to and then click the share button at the bottom of your device to “save to home screen.” This will create an app button on your device, giving you quick access to the site. (See pop-up message in screenshot). The downside of this engine, of course, is the fact that you must be connected to the internet to access the app.

The app’s name is a bit of a misnomer. It really does offer all FIVE mysteries.

October is “Rosary Month,” and this style of rosary app is definitely worth trying out if you really want to have those mysteries hold your attention to enrich your experience.
