Living the Rosary: Finding Your Life in the Mysteries

137 pages2 hours


In this book of meditations on the meaning of the Rosary, Rev. John Phalen, C.S.C., invites readers to open their eyes and their hearts to God's presence in their daily lives through this ancient devotion. Much more than a "how-to" book, Living the Rosary employs scripture, the lives of the saints, and Phalen's pastoral experiences to lead readers into a deep appreciation of the personal import of the mysteries of the Rosary.

As president of Holy Cross Family Ministries--the organization founded by Patrick Peyton, the "Rosary Priest"--Phalen has traveled the world, giving retreats and workshops on the Rosary to thousands. His meditative guide situates each of the twenty "mysteries" of the life of Jesus within both biblical and modern stories of conversion and spiritual growth. Beginning with his own vocation story (an example of "annunciation"), Phalen offers twenty different stories--some scriptural, some personal, all of them practical--that will help readers better understand and live each mystery of the Rosary. An explanation of how to pray the Rosary is included.
