The Rosary's rich simplicity has
provided solace and courage in rocky times for centuries. Now, as new
generations of Catholics face war, economic uncertainty, and moral
upheaval, the Rosary is needed as much as ever.
As interest in this beautiful devotion
continues to rise, this pamphlet can be used as an introduction to, or
reinforcement of, the power of the Rosary.
This attractive and concise guide will
instruct and inspire Catholics in the gentle rhythms and fervent hope of
the Rosary. Each set of mysteries, including the new Luminous Mysteries,
is accompanied by the Scripture passages from which these thoughtful
meditations are drawn. The reverse side of this pamphlet features a
step-by-step guide to saying the Rosary, with the full text of each
prayer. A description of the historical origins of the Rosary introduces
this helpful illustration.
It's perfect to hand out after Mass to
follow up a homily on the power of prayer. Use it to spark group
discussion on the Year of the Rosary declared by Blessed John Paul II, as
well as his call for peace. Insert the pamphlet in your weekly bulletin
with a meditation on Our Lady of Fatima's message for our society.
Distribute it at a family pizza-and-prayer night. It's also a wonderful
parish gift for RCIA students, those recently confirmed, or graduates.
