Inspired by his own love for the rosary and the saints, Fr. Calloway has gathered and arranged into one book the largest collection of quotes on the rosary to ever appear in print. The quotes in Rosary Gems: Daily Wisdom on the Holy Rosary have been selected from the writings of popes, saints, blesseds, and the many venerables of the Church. This is the perfect book to help you rediscover the power and wisdom of the holy rosary!
