Overview

HEALING MYSTERIES is a unique prayer book for persons who have lost their connection to prayer or the Spirit as a result of trauma, living with chronic illness, or other experiences of suffering. Using the prayer format of the Rosary, the reader is invited to meditate on three healing stories from the Gospel of Mark: the woman healed of a hemorrhage, the healing of the blind man at Bethsaida, and the raising of Jairus's daughter.

An introduction describes the effects of illness and trauma on one's spiritual life. Each mystery story begins with a preparatory reflection. This is followed by five decades that begin with a scripture verse, are followed by a meditation, and end with the Rosary prayers sequence for the decade. The book closes with an appendix on the order of the Rosary and suggestions for further reading.

Because trauma and illness can be so isolating, the physical prayer form of the Rosary is a powerful medium by which one can re-connect to the Spirit. In the traditional Rosary, one accompanies Jesus on the journey of his life, death, and resurrection. In these healing mysteries, we actively enter into biblical stories in which Jesus accompanies us and leads us to a greater state of wholeness, wellness, and new life.
