Inspired by Pope John Paul II’s Apostolic Letter on "The Rosary of the Blessed Virgin Mary", this book gives instructions on how to pray the rosary for beginners to more advanced so that it becomes a “pathway to contemplation”. “How to Pray the Rosary as a Pathway to Contemplation” contains Scripture passages and beautiful art to use as an aid in meditating on the twenty mysteries of the rosary, which are Gospel events from the lives of Jesus and Mary. This book also explains: • how to say the rosary • how to meditate on the mysteries of the rosary • how to pray the rosary in a way to remain receptive to the highest form of prayer which is contemplation. • how to recognize the transition from meditation to contemplation from the teachings of St. John of the Cross and St. Teresa of Avila • insights on prayer and the spiritual life from Carmelite spirituality, the Bible and the writings of the Saints. • tips on saying the rosary as a family, and • how the rosary is a Biblical prayer. Foreword by Fr. Donald Kinney, OCD.
