With My Crucifix you can be strengthened & instructed by Christ's sufferings 'anywhere, anytime'. Even if you have only a minute, this app can still be very spiritually beneficial. In fact, sixty seconds meditating on Christ's passion may be the "best sixty seconds you can spend on your soul all day outside of Mass, Confession, and the like"!
As St. Paul of the Cross suggests, "Take the holy crucifix in your hands, kiss its wounds with great love, and ask Him to preach you a sermon. Listen to what the thorns, the nails, and that Divine Blood say to you. Oh! What a sermon."
With My Crucifix you can enjoy many benefits of this precious devotional item without having to be at home or in church.
My Crucifix contains 12 images to choose from or add your own+. It offers the option to display the traditional 'Prayer Before a Crucifix' (or optionally, add your own text). Keep the screen on (override auto-lock settings) if desired. Enjoy a variety of aspirations, scriptural & saintly meditations & other prayers to assist with devotion.
Use My Crucifix to strengthen, instruct and comfort yourself whenever you're away from home or whenever you're not near a crucifix.
