When we pick up the Most Holy Rosary we enter into the world of the Mysteries of Our Faith. As we move from Joyful to Sorrowful to Glorious Mysteries we breathe in the life of the Only Son of God, as well as his life and teachings. Mary assists us on this journey of faith as we invite her to model our life on her own and to become more like Jesus by following her lead.

The rosary (from Latin rosarium, meaning "Crown of Roses" or "garland of roses") is a Roman Catholic sacramental and Marian devotion to prayer and the commemoration of Jesus Christ and events of his life. Throughout centuries, the rosary has been promoted by several popes as part of the veneration of Mary. The rosary also represents the Roman Catholic emphasis on "participation in the life of Mary, whose focus was Christ," and the Mariological theme "to Christ through Mary," taught by Saint Louis de Montfort. God Bless! PUBLISHER: CATHOLIC WAY PUBLISHING
Meditations on the Rosary intersects the areas of psychology and spirituality. It takes the reader through the mysteries of the rosary, using over fifty passages of scripture, five psalms, twenty illustrations, and twenty guided-imagery scripts. The scripts are designed to be interchangeable, using four basic inductions, twenty distinct bodies focused on the mysteries, and one closing for all. The book can be read alone for personal inspiration or used for leading Christian groups or retreats. It is also ideal for pastoral counselors, coaches, or mental health professionals. By using sensory awareness, the guided imagery brings the reader or listener right into the context of the actual events in Christs life, creating direct interaction with the characters involved. These exercises can foster psycho-spiritual growth, initiate insight and personal development, inspire through revelation, and/or aid in creating desired positive change in the person. Included is a chapter on the history of the rosary and a brief review of basic forms of meditation. Also included are twenty biblical illustrations by the nineteenth-century illustrator Paul Gustave Dore.

How do we listen to God speak to our hearts, minds, and wills—especially above the noise and stress of the modern world? What is the process of discerning God’s will? Best-selling author and popular EWTN host Fr. Mitch Pacwa, SJ tackles these and other questions in this comprehensive book on discernment. He says that first we need to believe in God and his moral laws and make a commitment to please him in all that we do. Then we need to pray so that we can experience the peace that can come only from God. • Confronts modern-day assumptions that can prevent us from being open to God’s will for our lives. • Emphasizes the many ways we can develop our prayer life to nourish an authentic relationship with the Lord. “Practical, clear, personable, and scriptural—everything I love about Fr. Mitch Pacwa’s teaching is here. This book is a glimpse into a great man’s heart as he shares the lessons he’s learned from God’s word and the Church as well as from the people he’s known.

From the first book to the last, Scripture says we should praise God... but how do you do that? Here's how to do it! Here's what to say! By blending a wide selection of Scripture's greatest passages of praise with Bible-based meditations on the Joyful, Luminous, Sorrowful, and Glorious Mysteries, the Rosary of Praise transforms a beloved prayer into a hymn of praise. Using the poetic Douay-Rheims translation of the Holy Word, here's a great way to better praise the Lord with the best possible prayer partner: the Blessed Virgin Mary!
Who should read the Bible? What is the biblical word? How is Scripture to be interpreted? How is it to be prayed and lived? How does Scripture call forth the Church's entire life and mission? In October 2008 the Synod on the Word of God in the Life and Mission of the Church took place in Rome. During the synod the bishops addressed these questions on the significance of the Word in the life and mission of the church. Beginning with a helpful explanation of the synod process, James Chukwuma Okoye, CSSp, follows the synod in historical progression, highlighting important topics and issues along the way and concluding with an exposition of the post-synodal apostolic exhortation Verbum Domini, which Benedict XVI signed on September 30, 2010. Okoye emphasizes that the Synod on the Word of God was not just about Scripture's function in the pastoral life of the church but it was also about tradition and God's continuing self-disclosure in history and in the religions and cultures of humankind." James Chukwuma Okoye, CSSp, is the Carroll Stuhlmueller Professor of Old Testament at Catholic Theological Union, Chicago. His teaching and ministry place him among people of many diverse cultures. Okoye has been Provincial of his Nigerian Congregation of Spiritans and General Assistant in the Congregation's headquarters in Rome. He was a member of the International Theological Commission and a peritus of the 1994 First Synod of Bishops for Africa. "

On Plenary Indulgence Why has the baby been thrown out with the bathwater, the power of Peter to bind and loose been cast aside so unceremoniously, and so the Word of Christ become overshadowed? If the only son of God imparts to His church the power to forgive men's sins in His name, and if that church has pronounced the availability of the great grace even of removal of temporal punishment by the prayers of devout souls (souls who ask in the Lord's name and with faith in His goodness, who therefore cannot be denied by a loving Father), why has the practice of plenary indulgence fallen into such disuse? Is it for its history of misuse? Then there is no hope for any of us; then the church might as well fold up its tent and go home, for it will never be perfect in this world.

Christians imitated the tradition of the Monks by praying the Psalms from the Bible daily. The Christians who wanted to make a prayer an important part of their lives instead began to pray 150 Hail Marys each day as a substitute for the 150 Psalms in the Bible. As they prayed, they reflected on each events or mysteries in the lives of Jesus and Mary. This prayer was named the Rosary, a Latin word which means ‘wreath of roses’. On saying the Holy Rosary we combine vocal prayer with meditations upon the Sacred Mysteries from the Bible readings. We begin the prayers of the Rosary with the sign of the Cross, placing ourselves vividly in the presence of God. This is followed by the Apostle’s Creed, the basis of our faith. The fifteen Mysteries of the Holy Rosary are divided into three parts: the ‘Joyful’, Sorrowful and the Glorious Mysteries. Currently, another Mystery has been added called the ‘Light’ Mystery. The Joyful Mysteries contain events from the youthful life of Jesus, the Sorrowful Mysteries remind us of the work of redemption, through the passion and death of Jesus Christ. The Glorious Mysteries tells us of the fruits of the redemption. The Mysteries of Light makes us move on in the infancy and growing life of Jesus of Nazareth to the public life of Jesus.
