By St. Josemaria Escriva
Most Catholics know how to recite the Holy Rosary. That’s the problem. They can recite it, and it becomes boring and monotonous. How much more enriching is it when you know how to pray it!
“To say the Holy Rosary,” says St. Josemaría, “considering the mysteries, repeating the Our Father and Hail Mary with the praises to the Blessed Trinity, and the constant invocation of the Mother of God, is a continuous act of faith, hope, and love, of adoration and reparation.”
In this small book, St. Josemaría shows us how to overcome the monotony and routine usually associated with praying the Rosary. He portrays each Mystery with the illuminating eyes of faith— helping you become absorbed in contemplation when you pray—indeed, he shows you how to be with Our Lady when you pray.
Holy Rosary, first published in 1934, contains a series of short commentaries on the 15 mysteries of the rosary (Joyful, Sorrowful, and Glorious). It helps the reader enter more deeply into these scenes from the life of our Lord and his Blessed Mother. This edition also includes the Luminous mysteries with an introductory note by Bishop Javier Echevarria, the 3rd prelate of Opus Dei.
This book is small enough to carry with you everywhere and use whenever you have a moment to spend with Our Lady.
