Spreading Deeper Conversions With Catholic Apps

The spiritual journey of every person is so vastly different. It is a lifelong journey marked by victories and setbacks, support and opposition, and, above all, the constant spiritual warfare against Satan and the powers of darkness. Saint Peter tells us that we are pilgrims and sojourners in this world, and that to get to Heaven we must keep away from worldly desires that endanger our souls (1 Peter 2:11). But, we must draw our strength and support from somewhere, from daily prayer and devotions and, above all, the Church. Catholic Apps began with the simple mission of helping souls get to Heaven. We do this through providing resources conveniently accessible on your smartphone or tablet. These resources, such as daily prayers and devotions, along with the sacraments, have been given to us by Our Father in Heaven as our spiritual weapons. Our support has always been in the Church and Her Sacraments, the Saints, and Our Virgin Mother Mary. It is Mary who gave us perhaps the greatest forms of spiritual weaponry to use against Evil – the Rosary. It was the Rosary, and specifically, the Seven Sorrows of Mary, that led to the founding of Catholic Apps and the reconversion of its founder, Bernice Follet.

The Mission of the Catholic Apps Apostolate

Bernice founded Catholic Apps not just as a company to help Catholics practice their Faith more fully. She founded it as a response to a calling to spread the One True Faith throughout the world. Renewed and strengthened by her devotion to Our Mother of Sorrows, Bernice began Catholic Apps with mission to spread the benefits of praying the Rosary daily, especially that of the Seven Sorrows devotion. As motivated by the benefits of the Devotion to the Mother of Sorrows, Catholic Apps wants every person to:
This mission of Catholic Apps mirrors the benefits promised by Mary through the devotion to her Seven Sorrows. It was this devotion that led Bernice on a deeper spiritual journey that resulted in the founding of Catholic Apps, a spiritual journey that began with a pilgrimage to Medjugorje.

Turning Back To God

Bernice is no stranger to the hard journey all people make during their life. For most of her life, she fell into the trap that Saint Peter warns us about, allowing worldly desires to shape the soul. Yet, it was Our Lady that continued to pull her back to the Faith over the course of 10 years, a calling that led to many pilgrimages to Medjugorje.
Medjugorje is the site of frequent apparitions of Mary to six people, since 1981 to present day. Although not yet fully approved by the Church as authentic Marian apparitions, the Vatican has recognized the importance and power of Medjugorje pilgrimages. The Church currently approves of the devotions and belief in the apparitions while they are currently being authenticated. Many pilgrims return with stories of having experienced great conversion and re-conversions, and even miraculous healings of the mind, body, and soul.

Through daily Mass and praying the Rosary daily with her family, Bernice has become ever stronger in her faith. It is this faith she hopes to spread throughout the world through Catholic Apps. Making Catholic devotions, prayers, and resources easily accessible and easier to use and understand was a driving force behind creating Catholic Apps, which began with a strong devotion to Our Lady of Sorrows and the Rosary.

Catholic Apps and the Seven Sorrows of Mary

With a renewed strength in faith and a deeper relationship with God, Bernice created the first Seven Sorrows prayer app for Catholic Apps. She wanted to spread the necessity of praying the daily Rosary and going to daily Mass to protect the soul from the temptations of evil. Moreover, through Catholic Apps, Bernice wanted to help people unite themselves closer with Christ through His Mother, which is the primary purpose of the Seven Sorrows devotion.
As the Mother of Christ, Mary endured special sufferings. It is through meditating upon these sufferings, or her Seven Sorrows, that we unite ourselves with the Passion of Christ and thereby enter into Jesus’ Heart.
Bernice holds a strong devotion to Our Lady’s Seven Sorrows, and hopes to spread the promises of Our Sorrowful Lady associated with this rosary devotion:
Catholic Apps began with the Seven Sorrows app, providing audio and text to pray the Seven Sorrows Rosary. Now, the app is also available in Spanish and Catholic Apps has expanded to include more Catholic devotional apps available in Google Play and other app stores.
While many Catholic prayer apps available today include such resources as daily Mass readings, bible verses, saint of the day, and Liturgy of the Hours, Catholic Apps provides specific prayer apps that focus on powerful devotions such as the Seven Sorrows Rosary, the Chaplet of Saint Michael, and various Rosary devotional apps like the Scriptural Rosary and even a family prayer app.
Today, Catholic Apps works to provide more Catholic resource apps with the latest technology. Each app is based upon living the One True Faith and while fully embracing the spiritual weapons we are given to fight for the salvation of souls.
