Format: Paperback
For someone looking to "make a difference" in our world so filled with unrest and need, responding to Pope John Paul II's call to embrace the Rosary is one affirmative step that can be taken immediately. As a resource for making contemplation of the Rosary a part of your life, authors Michael Dubruiel and Amy Welborn have compiled the book Praying the Rosary: With the Joyful, Luminous, Sorrowful, & Glorious Mysteries (Our Sunday Visitor, June 2003, hardcover, 64 pages).

Though compact in size, this book can and will have a tremendous impact upon your life if you choose to read and implement its suggested format. The book's introduction reiterates the Holy Father's call to this perfect form of Christian contemplation and points to the Blessed Virgin Mary as a role model for contemplating the true mystery of Jesus Christ, his life, death and resurrection. Bearing both the Nihil Obstat and the Imprimatur, Praying the Rosary incorporates all four sets of mysteries, including the new Luminous mysteries.

Welborn and Dubruiel follow the format suggested by Pope John Paul II in Rosarium Virginis Mariae including the announcement of the mystery, scriptural references, contemplative silence, the formal prayers of the Rosary (including a short prayer phrase following each Hail Mary related to the specific mystery), and a brief concluding prayer for each mystery. Newcomers to Rosary devotion will find the compendium of prayers at the completion of the book a helpful resource.

Complimenting the suggested format, stunning artwork graces the pages for each of the mysteries. Contemplation of these wonderful icons provided courtesy of St. Isaac of Syria Skete allows the user yet another point of interaction with the mysteries of the Rosary.

I have been praying the Rosary daily for over a decade and struggle off and on with meditating on the mysteries (rather than letting my mind wander). This little book has been very helpful to me. The pictures are beautiful and the Gospel reading provided with each mystery along with a short meditation have really helped me stay centered in prayer.

Ii thought that the book was very helpful in my being able to follow the Rosary, in its new form. I loved its colorful pages and guide. For anyone who wants to start the Holy Rosary, or who have interest in just having the Holy Rosary, in its new form, this is a winner!

This book is an okay book as it has the latest updates in it. But I had purchased it for a teaching aid and it didn't have a diagram and explanation of the Rosary itself.

On one hand, there is no indication of which prayer is said on which bead. On the other hand, we get the text of the prayers. So if you have prayer-to-bead correspondence perfectly memorized, but you can't remember the words to the "Hail Mary", this is your book.
I thought that the Luminous Mysteries were optional. The book offers no help on invoking that option.

But if you want to use the Luminous Mysteries and have the Rosary basics under firm control, this is not a terrible book. We get one quote from the Bible, a brief description, and a full page of art per Mystery. I'm not sure who did the art, but it certainly was not done by Michelangelo. I would call it "adequate".

I guess I am still in the market for a Rosary book. I have to be able to find something better than this one.

The icon pictures are beautiful, the text easy to follow. It's a great introduction to praying the Rosary and it will be at the top of my gift list when appropriate. I bought it in response to the suggested memorial for the author, and am grateful for the suggestion.

I have been looking for a rosary prayer book that gives relevant scripture phrases between the "Hail Mary's." I was hoping this would have that, but it doesn't. Should have listened to the one-star reviewer. The pictures are nice, though.

I bought this for a friend who had recently converted to Catholicism. He likes the book very much. I am not Catholic so I did not read the book myself.
