From the Author
The genius of Fr. Watson's book is to integrate the graces that Mary offers us through her intercession and join them with Ignatian method of discernment by simply praying the Rosary's mysteries in this new way. Fr Watson instructs us to pray the Rosary with an Ignatian method of contemplation. We are to engage mysteries of the life of Jesus Christ: to enter into them, to live them and receive the fruitful graces of the spiritual exercise of the Sacred Story Rosary.
Another original aspect in Fr. Watson's work is the contemplation of the mystery of the Rosary uniquely applied to one's own sacred story. In this application--this contemplation--the events of the Spirit in the heart of every person, his or her personal story, the direction of his or her life and conversion, lead to concrete changes resulting from the action of the grace in following Jesus and in doing the will of the Father through the power of the Holy Spirit.
This is a simple style of prayer that the author presents us with. It is way of praying the Rosary that does not hold us in a static reflection on God but takes us further, making the mysteries an instrument of discernment to transform our lives, even in the big demands God's love can make of us.
By concluding the book with Marian prayers and reflections of the Popes John XXIII, John Paul II, Blessed Paul VI and Pope Francis, Fr. Watson unites us with Mary and under her loving intercession, with the Magisterium of the Church,
As St. Ignatius Loyola, we are on a spiritual journey of faith lovingly following Jesus. This book also invites us to follow Jesus and accompany him in his saving deeds, through the intercession of Mary. For in the Spiritual Exercises and the Rosary, we placed with the Father's Son, Jesus.
As the Ignatian Exercises and its method, the Sacred Story Rosary is an instrument of holiness, because it allows the creature to open to the creator and let Him lead one's life. I admire and appreciate the spiritual creativity of the author. It is clearly an action of grace working through him that he has shared with us.
