Sometimes our Rosaries become more of a habitual recitation instead of a meaningful conversation between us and our Creator. This book series is a great way to reimagine the mysteries of the Rosary with the insightful meditations and thought provoking questions from Pope John Paul II, St. Theresa of Avila, and the insightful mystic, Blessed Anne Catherine Emmerich. The classic depictions of the mysteries of the rosary will also inspire meditation and help keep your focus on the mysteries.

The Contemplative Rosary with St. John Paul II and St. Teresa of Avila

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!

Mysteries of the Rosary - Joyful, Luminous, Sorrowful and Glorious Mysteries

The Most Holy Rosary is one of the greatest prayers in the history of the Church. Garnished as it is with the testimony of saints and Popes for the last thousand years, the only greater prayers the Mass and the Divine Office. It is a prayer for the people, to be said over and over, and yet, many still seek ways to enter into the deeper mansions of spiritual richness to be found in this devotion.

If you seek to reap the full harvest of this bountiful prayer, focus on the mysteries to better follow the life of our Lord through the eyes of Our Blessed Lady. Many books have been produced over the years, employing various methods of meditation.

Here, however, stands as a unique work, arranged through the eyes of the great mystic, Blessed Anne Catherine Emmerich. Discover her magnificent and terrifying visions that will bring the Rosary to life and help you to more fully contemplate the lives of Jesus and Mary in this great prayer.

The visions of Blessed Anne Catherine will help you live the life of Christ in your own life. You cannot help to be drawn closer to Him after experiencing the joys and sorrows of Jesus and His Mother in The Mysteries of the Rosary.
