In his papal letter Rosarium Virginis Mariae on October 16, 2002, Pope John Paul II called on Catholics - and other Christians as well - to pray the rosary. The Illustrated Rosary book is a lovely companion to praying the rosary; it functions as an aid to prayerful rosary meditation, which is the true power behind the repitition. Each rosary mystery is accompanied by rich, detailed, fine-quality art prints depicting that mystery, along with a short reflection on each. Praying the rosary along with beautiful Catholic art, as well as with short reflections, is a wonderful way to deepen your rosary prayers; they guide the senses and the imagination into the riches of divine contemplation. As you pray the rosary along with this illustrated guide, each image and meditation will help you to focus on the life of Jesus as you pray. This small hardcover book includes an introduction about the importance of praying the rosary, which makes it an especially useful gift for new Catholics. The final pages contain the Litany to the Blessed Virgin Mary, a beautiful way to conclude this prized of all Marian devotions.

|Review:||When I saw this little book on the rosary I didn't know what I would do with it. Over Christmas a distant friend told my husband and I that he would be confirmed into the church on the Easter Vigil. I think this little book will be just the right gift to give to a new Catholic.|

|Review:||The introduction to this book is helpful in learning how the rosary came to be through recitation of the psalms and prayers in earlier times. This book is small enough to fit into a purse or pocket and pray the rosary at a moment's notice. The beginning of each mystery starts with an introduction so it's easier to meditate. A must-have for every family.|
