Overview

"The Rosary is for old ladies and funerals." Or is it? In David N. Calvillo's debut book, he reveals how each week thousands of men of all ages and backgrounds join together each week in the Real Men Pray the Rosary movement and are seeing the fruit of this spiritual discipline in their lives and families. A new centerpiece of Catholic men's spirituality, this dynamic book and movement brings men together, deepening their devotion to Christ through Mary. Often surprising and always inspiring, Calvillo combines storytelling with a profound, inviting guide and convincingly shows how the Rosary is alive and well today—for men. In a world filled with ubiquitous distractions and technology, Calvillo helps men to unplug from time to time and tap into this "simple system of prayer" that takes only minutes each day, but whose transformative power is beyond measure. He shares why the Hail Mary is the "perfect prayer" and concludes with a 33-day Rosary Challenge so readers can experience for themselves how praying several minutes each day for thirty-three days radically changes their lives.
