Overview

The Rosary, often called �the Gospel in miniature,� is both explained and meditated upon by Rev. John Phalen, C.S.C., president of Holy Cross Family Ministries and one of today's leading Rosary evangelists.

In this new book of meditations on the meaning of the Rosary, Rev. John Phalen, C.S.C., invites readers to open their eyes and their hearts to God's presence in their daily lives through this ancient devotion. Much more than a �how-to� book, Living the Rosary employs scripture, the lives of the saints, and Phalen's pastoral experiences to lead readers into a deep appreciation of the personal import of the mysteries of the Rosary.

As president of Holy Cross Family Ministries�the organization founded by Patrick Peyton, the �Rosary Priest��Phalen has traveled the world, giving retreats and workshops on the Rosary to thousands. His meditative guide situates each of the twenty �mysteries� of the life of Jesus within both biblical and modern stories of conversion and spiritual growth. Beginning with his own vocation story (an example of �annunciation�), Phalen offers twenty different stories�some scriptural, some personal, all of them practical�that will help readers better understand and live each mystery of the Rosary. An explanation of how to pray the Rosary is included.

What People are Saying About This

Rev. Willy Raymond
�In his preaching, in his writing, in his prayer life and in this book, Fr. John Phalen shares his own passion for Mary and her gentle way to Christ. He has a gift for relating the Mysteries of the Rosary to our daily lives and he does this better than anyone I know. I believe the readers of this book will hear echoes resounding in their own hearts of the joy, light, suffering, and glory of Our Lord and His Blessed Mother Mary. � --(Rev. Willy Raymond, C.S.C., Director, Family Theater Productions)
Mitch Finley
�The Rosary's mysteries are as much about today and about your life as they are about events that happened long ago! Father John Phalen's book will help you learn to make this connection and enrich your praying of the Rosary a hundred times over.� --(Mitch Finley, Author of The Rosary Handbook)
