*This book, like many on this site, was given to me by the publisher in exchange for my honest review. I’m grateful for the opportunity to share it with you today…
I have found much comfort and peace in praying the rosary in times of joy, in times of anxiety, and in times of sorrow. Along with my Catholic faith, the rosary is perhaps the best gift my family has passed on to me.
Have you ever wondered why Catholics like me love this prayer so much? Are you looking for ways to go deeper with the rosary to truly unlock more peace in your heart and in the world?
Whether you’re someone who has never felt like praying a rosary before, or someone who prays the rosary every day, there’s something here for you.
In Praying the Rosary Like Never Before, Edward Sri does an excellent job of covering the basics and apologetics of this ancient prayer, while also taking experienced rosary devotees into a more thorough understanding of the rosary’s many facets and applications to our lives.
The book includes great discussion questions at the end of each chapter for personal reflection or group discussion. The first half of the book explains how Jesus is at the very heart and center of the rosary. It addresses many common hindrances to this prayer, including a lack of understanding about its importance and a fear of its beautiful repetition. The second half of the book takes readers through the 4 sets of mysteries in the rosary that are contained within the Gospels, explaining how we can meditate on each mystery as we pray to truly come to know Jesus more intimately. At the end, a scriptural rosary is offered and suggested as an additional way to pray through the mysteries of the rosary with renewed zeal.
It’s simple. If we want to see more peace on this earth, we need to be saying more rosaries. Why? Because Heaven has asked this of us through Mary, through the saints, and through the Church Jesus established here on earth.
P.S. God is merciful & He love you! Pass it on…
