This special volume includes the full text of the Pope's apostolic letter, and is illustrated with twenty beautiful, full-color Renaissance paintings.
In late 2002, Pope John Paul 11 captured the attention of the Catholic world, reminding us of the importance and power of the Rosary with an apostolic letter, Rosarium Virginis Mariae. It was also then that he introduced five new mysteries of the Rosary: the Luminous Mysteries. Finally, he proclaimed the following twelve months the Year of the Rosary and strongly encouraged the faithful to renew our devotion to this ancient prayer.
Fr. Benedict Groeschel follows the Pope s lead by presenting this new look at the meaning, history and all the mysteries of the Rosary, focusing on the theme of hope. Speaking from his vast personal experience as a priest, psychologist, author and spiritual advisor, as well as from the grand traditions of the Church, Fr. Groeschel takes us on a spiritual journey that will move the reader to greater depths of faith and prayer.
The Rosary: Chain of Hope offers us an opportunity to step back for a few minutes from the noise and din of life. In our busy modern life with its distractions and discouragements, the Rosary can be a wonderful means of prayer and an easy way to come into contact with the presence of God, Our Lady, and the saints. It is an especially good technique for growing in deeper understanding of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. The mysteries of the Rosary now take us through the whole Gospel, into the mysteries of eternal life, which are dimly but powerfully portrayed in the Book of Revelation.
Fr. Benedict Groeschel, C.F.R., is the founder of the Franciscan Friars of the Renewal. A popular speaker, and regular guest on EWTN, he is the author of numerous books, including A Still, Small Voice, Reform of Renewal, and Arise from Darkness.
