New edition, expanded to include John Paul II’s “Mysteries of Light.”
“If you think the Mysteries of the Rosary are removed from everyday life, think again! Teresa Rhodes McGee’s touching meditations intimately connect and relate the sorrow and joy in the lives of Jesus and Mary with the tears and laughter of contemporary life. An ancient devotion is reborn in this book!” — Therese Johnson Borchard, author, Winging It
The Rosary is one of the treasures of Catholic spirituality. In this short, inspiring book, Teresa Rhodes McGee explores the riches of this tradition and brings it to life for a new generation.
From its first emergence in the twelfth century, the Rosary has been a popular way to meditate on each of the key mysteries of faith. Along with the traditional “Joyful,” “Sorrowful” and “Glorious Mysteries,” drawn from the life of Christ, Pope John Paul II in 2002 added the “Mysteries of Light.” These refer to the baptism of Jesus, the wedding feast of Cana, the proclamation of the Kingdom of God, the transfiguration, and the institution of the Eucharist.
