The Rosary Prayer by Prayer was written in response to a demand for a greater understanding of the rosary and devotion to Mary. When we go to Mary in prayer, she leads us along the road to Jesus, because loving Mary means praising and serving her Son.
The rosary is a fine example of this fact. Like a pilgrimage, praying on each bead takes us one step closer to the Trinity. The prayers and mysteries of the rosary are based on Scripture and celebrate God’s gift of Jesus to the world.
If you never prayed the rosary, haven’t prayed it in a while, or have had trouble understanding it, The Rosary Prayer by Prayer will clearly lead you through it in a stress-less way.
