Overview

For all of the two billion Hail Marys that are said daily, an equal number of questions are likely raised about it. Why then, when there are so many other methods by which one might meditate, would someone pick up rosary beads?

The rosary is a history lesson, a study in theology, and a simple meditative prayer all in one. Once a cornerstone of Catholic devotion, today the rosary is often neglected and misunderstood. The Seeker's Guide to the Rosary invites you to explore the mysteries of the rosary and apply its communal language of faith to modern-day life. This comprehensive guide gives you the opportunity to develop a rich and purposeful connection with the rosary, with meditation, and, ultimately, with God.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Elizabeth Kelly explores the powerful ritual of the rosary in The Seeker's Guide to the Rosary, a manual that is accessible to novices and non-Catholics as well as experienced devotees. Kelly explains the basic prayers of the rosary (the Apostles' Creed, the Our Father, the Hail Mary and the Doxology) and offers a basic primer on their usage. She then describes the 15 Mysteries and the rosary's place in Catholic history and her own spiritual journey. This is an informative, heartfelt book. ( Apr.)
