Dear Sacred Heart and St. Mary’s on the Lake,
Continuing the theme on media that can help us grow, I want to mention four great Catholic apps.
Mass Times for Travel: This is a great app for those who travel often, be it for work, sports, or vacations. It utilizes your current location and lets you know the Mass times of churches in your area. If needed, it will also link you to their website that then can link you to individual parishes you want to know more about. https://masstimes.org/
Laudate: Another great all-around helpful app. Laudate is a treasure trove of prayers, readings, meditations, and devotionals. There are many things to choose from that can help you build the prayer time that you have been striving for.
Confession Guide: It is based on the popular booklet “Short Guide for Confession” by Fr. James Socías, which has helped many penitents prepare for and make a good Confession.
The Short Guide for Confession provides clear instructions about what to do before, during, and after Confession. Hopefully, this app could help you experience the blessings of this powerful sacrament.
Word on Fire: Bishop Barron offers great content and Catholic commentary on the many issues of our day. This is a great resource for continuing our own catechesis and personal growth.
May these apps help you grow in this New Year!
