Scriptural Rosary with Luminous Mysteries -- Rosary Meditation Aid
Hardcover Scriptural Rosary devotional book with Luminous Mysteries. The Scriptural Rosary makes meditating on the biblical mysteries of the rosary so much easier!

 The Scriptural Rosary combines the regular recitation of the rosary with a short passage from scripture, said before each Hail Mary. The scripture passages are arranged so that the story of each mystery, or decade, unfolds biblically bead by bead.  As a result, the Scriptural Rosary is a great aid for meditating more fruitfully on the mysteries, which is what the rosary is about.  This Scriptural Rosary is really a modern version of the way the Rosary was prayed throughout Western Europe in the late Middle Ages.

Living the Rosary
The Rosary, often called “the Gospel in miniature,” is both explained and meditated upon by Rev. John Phalen, C.S.C., president of Holy Cross Family Ministries and one of today’s leading Rosary evangelists.
Living the Rosary: Finding Your Life in the Mysteries 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.
