When I wrote my enthusiastic review of Novena to Mary recently, the app writer wrote to me and told me about another app he had developed, Stations for the Unborn.

I was hooked, and I told him I’d be interested in reviewing it.

This app is developed from the written version of “The Way of the Cross for the Unborn” dedicated to Our Lady of Guadalupe,” which received an imprimatur from Bishop John L Morkovsky in 1983.

Our Lady of Guadalupe is close to my heart (and all around my home), and the issue of abortion also tugs at me.

So often, we’re told to pray for an end to abortion, and I can’t help but wonder, at times, what good my measly little prayer does.

An app like this, then, is the perfect companion. Walking with Jesus through his Passion and Crucifixion is harrowing, and knowing that doing so can help unborn children gives it a purpose and a tenderness I haven’t often found in this devotion.

The app is easy to use and has beautiful graphics and images for each station.

I think, in fact, that I may find myself learning the Stations and growing in my love of this devotion thanks to this app. I also look forward to sharing it with my children–my seven-year-old will be able to read most, if not all, of it, and I can see it being a great family prayer opportunity.

  1. No better way to start my pregnancy! I’m in the 6 weeks and I would love to use it through out my pregnancy . Thanks for developing it 🙂

  2. I’d love to introduce this to the Secular Franciscans in my parish. We pray a monthly Rosary for the unborn and many volunteer at crisis pregnancy centers.
