Willing Hearts app—A Five-star experience

Louisville, KY/USA — January 10, 2017
Reviewers rate the new Catholic app Willing Hearts five stars. The newest Catholic app Willing Hearts is now available on Amazon Appstore and on iTunes, for both Android and Apple tablets and phones!

Willing Hearts is an immersive experience that includes period music, voice-overs by current Sisters of the Holy Cross and historic documents all woven through a poignant, creative non-fiction story. This is history presented in a unique fashion! The Willing Hearts app tells the courageous and heroic stories of Catholic Sisters of the Holy Cross who served as nurses during the Civil War.

Theirs is a remarkable story of faith, courage and finding joy amidst an angry, divisive time in our country. Follow these brave women religious into military hospitals alongside great rivers, and onto a magnificent naval hospital steamboat. Find out more about this app.

“We were not prepared as nurses, but our hearts made our hands willing and our sympathy ready, and so with God’s help, we did much toward alleviating the dreadful suffering.”  — Mother M. Augusta (Anderson) CSC
