The Holy Word Rosary 

with the Word of God 


Archbishop Fulton Sheen said,

 "The rosary is the book of the blind, where souls see and there enact the greatest drama of love the world has ever known. 

it is the book of the simple, which initiates them into mysteries and knowledge more satisfying than the education of other men. 

it is the book of the aged, whose eyes close upon the shadow of this world, and open on the substance of the next. 

The power of the rosary is beyond description."

The Holy Rosary and the indulgences attached to it by the Church essentially concern the decades and the meditation upon the mysteries only.

However to assist in the contemplation or realisation of the Word of God involved in each decade of the Rosary, we break each mystery into the associated scripture reading between each Hail Mary. 

In so doing we humbly trust it will bring this great prayer and the Word of God truly into life.

The Rosary has been called the preparation for contemplation and the prayer of saints. While the hands and lips are occupied with the prayers (it can and should be prayed silently when necessary so as not to disturb others), the mind meditates on the mysteries of the Incarnation and Redemption represented by the decades. 


Meditation is the form of prayer by which the one who prays uses the mind and imagination to consider a truth and uses the will to love it and form resolutions to live it. In this way the heart, mind, and soul of the Christian is formed according to the Gospel examples of the Savior and His First Disciple, His Mother. In God's own time, when this purification of the heart, mind, and soul has advanced sufficiently the Lord may give the grace of contemplative prayer, that special divine insight into the truth which human effort cannot achieve on its own.
