Though simple and effective, the rosary provides much more than a means of rote and mechanistic prayer. It is instead a way of walking with Mary and her son Jesus through his birth, death, and Resurrection.
Joy of the Rosary offers insights to help readers pray the Rosary more meaningfully, more devotedly, and more effectively.
It includes: A brief history of the origins of the rosary; How Our Lady's Psalter was transformed into the rosary we know today; Suggestions for times and places to pray the rosary; Full text of all the prayers included in the rosary; Meditations and prayers for each of the fifteen mysteries; Exquisite wood engravings by the renowned 20th century artist David Jones that complement each meditation; Scriptural references for each of the mysteries. This delightful and illuminating book offers an invitation to a renewed appreciation of the rosary.
