For years we struggled with praying the Rosary with our children. They found it boring and hard because they saw it as a lot of the same prayers and not as a meditation. We had to train them to think about the Mysteries of the Rosary as the stories from the Bible. We used this CD on car trips and even praying at night in our home, and by doing so, our children not only pray the Rosary, but they really understand it and the Scripture that goes with it.
The Joyful Mysteries
The first of the 4-volume set of the Mysteries of the Rosary includes an overview of the Rosary, how to pray it, and a Scriptural Rosary, including more than a dozen children. Each mystery is introduced by an explanation of "what happened in the mystery." Then, before each "Hail Mary," a child reads a verse from the Scriptural revelation of the mystery. At the conclusion, hear about the exciting part the Rosary played in the naval battle called "The Miracle of Lepanto." Original orchestral music by Eric Genuis aids the beauty of the meditations.
