5.0 out of 5 stars A great way to deepen your love for the Rosary and the Mass!, May 18, 2010
This review is from: Eucharist and the Rosary: Mystery Medita: Mystery, Meditation, Power, Prayer (Paperback)
The most important prayer for Catholics is the Mass, and the most popular devotion among Catholics is the Rosary. Matt Swaim takes these two important spiritual practices and carefully leads the reader to a deeper understanding of their relationship. It is a unique approach and offers Catholics an accessible way to deepen their appreciation of both the Mass and the Rosary.

In "The Eucharist and the Rosary", Swaim dedicates a short chapter to each of the twenty mysteries of the Rosary. For each one, he ties the mystery to our celebration of the Mass, and in doing so, both allows us to understand the Mass better as well as the mystery in question. But this book is no dry theological tome; Swaim writes in a breezy style yet doesn't fall into a disrespectful tone for the sacred topics he is addressing. He combines references to saints, Church teaching, and popular culture in a way that helps the reader better understand sacred realities with little effort.

There are many ways to approach the praying of the Rosary, and in "The Eucharist and the Rosary" Swaim gives the Church a marvelous method of enriching this traditional prayer - and along the way also enriches our appreciation of the Mass. For any Catholic who wishes to advance in the spiritual life, I highly recommend this book.
