By blending a wide selection of Scripture's greatest passages of praise with Bible-based meditations on the Joyful, Luminous, Sorrowful, and Glorious Mysteries, the Rosary of Praise transforms a beloved prayer into a hymn of praise.

It is said of de Montfort’s book, The Secret of the Rosary, “It goes far beyond mere research. We might say that it contains everything that can be said about the rosary, its content and form, its real worth, about the instruction necessary for its appreciation and use.” de Montfort calls the rosary, “The mystical rose tree of Jesus and Mary in life, death and eternity.” He says that the roses of your rosary will “never wilt or die, and they will be just as exquisite thousands of years from now as they are today.” He warns us against both the ignorant and scholars who regard the rosary as something of little importance. “The rosary is a priceless treasure which is inspired by God.”

You know that in an Apostolic Letter in 2002, Pope John Paul II added five Luminous Mysteries. Did you know that in that same Letter he also called for a new way of praying the Rosary? St. John Paul II’s new way of praying the Rosary was based on the teachings of St. Theresa of Avila and has become known as the Contemplative Rosary because it more perfectly unites vocal prayer and meditation, transforming the prayers of the Rosary into a contemplative meeting with God. Did you know about these changes? Have you tried them? In our new book, The Contemplative Rosary, we have not only incorporated the five new Luminous Mysteries, we have included as well the many other changes Pope John Paul made to the Rosary. Here are his additions to the texts and prayers — additions small and large — that, as John Paul intended, unite the Rosary more closely to the official liturgical prayers of the Church as well as to Scripture. Here are also scores of full-color images for your contemplation that anchor your attention in each Mystery and transform your Rosary from a hasty, habitual recitation into a profound speaking to God and a keen listening to Him. Following the wise advice of St. Theresa of Avila and the new method proposed by St. John Paul, you’ll find here for each mystery: • A lovely, full-color classical painting depicting the events in the Mystery, for help in your contemplation • A unique announcement of the Mystery • A statement of the expected fruits of the Mystery • The Scriptural passage you should consider before embarking on your prayers of the Mystery • A call for a moment of silence in order to recollect yourself before entering the presence of God • Each Mystery’s own unique Hail Mary, including within each a John Paul II recommended statement of faith “to pull wandering minds back to Christ and center them in the mystery” • Seven meditations tailored to each Mystery, to accompany your recitation of the Hail Marys (but only employ one at a time) • A concluding short prayer asking God for the fruits specific to that Mystery • Plus much more, so that finally you can begin to pray the Rosary as Saint John Paul wants you to pray it!

“These words express, so to speak, the wonder of heaven and earth; they could be said to give a glimpse of God’s own wonderment as he contemplates his ‘masterpiece’—the Incarnation of the Son in the womb of the Virgin Mary.” —Saint John Paul II Do you have two and a half minutes in your day that you can give to God? This is the beauty of the rosary. You don’t have to pray the rosary all at once and you can pray it anywhere! Do you struggle with praying the rosary: finding time, fighting distractions, worrying about your mind wandering? In Praying the Rosary Like Never Before, Edward Sri offers practical suggestions that come from the rosary’s tradition and, most especially, St. John Paul II. These helpful tips will make the rosary a constant companions through the different seasons, moments, and challenges we all face. These tips serve as easy on-ramps for those who don’t pray the rosary regularly motivate avid devotees of the rosary to go deeper with the Lord. “Offering God a decade or two in the midst of my daily life gives him something beautiful, even if I give it without my full, relaxed, undivided attention,” says Sri. “I’m giving God some space in my day and filling it with words of praise for him.” You will find answers to common questions such as the significance of the Hail Mary, whether the attention given to Mary distracts us from God, the meaning of all the repetition, where the rosary came from, what to think about for each of the mysteries, and whether one should focus on the prayers or the mysteries. You will also find biblical reflections on the twenty mysteries of the rosary that provide practical insights to help you not only understand the twenty mysteries but also live them. In this book, Sri takes what he did in The New Rosary in Scripture to a new level.
