Overview

For quite some time, the rosary has been viewed as a staid and traditional prayer that is the exclusive domain of traditional Catholics, although the new Mysteries of Light have caused many to take a new look at it. It may seem odd to suggest that it might become a tool for a new revolution or that we might discover the practice of praying the rosary to be radically countercultural. But I believe that the rosary has within itself the potential to change hearts and -- in the very act of doing so -- to change the world. The recent addition of the Mysteries of Light to the rosary by Pope John Paul II has sparked a flurry of renewed interest in this classic prayer. More than just providing a description of all twenty mysteries, however, this book provides intelligent and enlightening discussion of the history, significance and power that have made the rosary the most beloved of all devotional prayers. The Rosary contains a series of reflections that explain each mystery and offer practical applications to modern-day life. Through her intriguing and provocative exploration of the Joyful, Luminous, Sorrowful and Glorious mysteries, the author provides readers with a renewed appreciation of the rosary as a path to love and peace in the new millennium.
