Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The first part of the book contains the instructions on how to pray the Rosary, as I would expect in any Rosary book. It is after that that this book differs from most of the other small Rosary guides. Each Mystery is introduced with an appropriate Biblical passage (The Annunciation is introduced by Luke 1:35) and closed with a prayer by Caryll Houselander that reflects the nature and spirit of that Mystery.
A fine way to enrich your study of the Rosary, or to add more thoughts and meditations on the Holy Mysteries. If you want to deepen your spiritual approach to the Rosary, this book will be a loved addition to your library. The book is small enough to be included in almost anyone's luggage, or even in a large pocket, bag, or purse, and can therefore be taken along as a pocket resource on the Rosary and the relevent Biblical passages. Since I occasionally make gemstone Rosaries, I am often asked to recommend a book, and have found this book to be an excellent accompaniment to the gift of a Rosary.
If you are looking for more information about the history of the Rosary instead, then I suggest "Stories of the Rose" or any of the other fine books on the Rosary's history and practice, as this small book does not cover historical practice.

This is a great book. For beginners it has bead-by-bead instructions and diagram. For people that already know the rosary it has Prayers at the end of each Mystery. I hope you enjoy it as much as I have! God Bless

Format: Paperback
A valuable introduction to the Rosary for newcomers; a welcome refresher-course for those who might be out of practice. Veterans of the Rosary will doubtless value the fifteen poem-prayers that Caryll Houselander (1901-1954) wrote for each of the Mysteries: each prayer, a small masterpiece of ardour, humility, and unpretentious artistry.

Format: Paperback
We use this book often, it helps the children remember what they are meditaiting on and they have asked more questions becasue of it. I have found that it makes a great gift when given with a Rosary.
