You know that in an Apostolic Letter in 2002, Pope John Paul II added five Luminous Mysteries. Did you know that in that same Letter he also called for a new way of praying the Rosary? St. John Paul II’s new way of praying the Rosary was based on the teachings of St. Theresa of Avila and has become known as the Contemplative Rosary because it more perfectly unites vocal prayer and meditation, transforming the prayers of the Rosary into a contemplative meeting with God. Did you know about these changes? Have you tried them? In our new book, The Contemplative Rosary, we have not only incorporated the five new Luminous Mysteries, we have included as well the many other changes Pope John Paul made to the Rosary. Here are his additions to the texts and prayers — additions small and large — that, as John Paul intended, unite the Rosary more closely to the official liturgical prayers of the Church as well as to Scripture. Here are also scores of full-color images for your contemplation that anchor your attention in each Mystery and transform your Rosary from a hasty, habitual recitation into a profound speaking to God and a keen listening to Him. Following the wise advice of St. Theresa of Avila and the new method proposed by St. John Paul, you’ll find here for each mystery: -A lovely, full-color classical painting depicting the events in the Mystery, for help in your contemplation. -A unique announcement of the Mystery. -A statement of the expected fruits of the Mystery. -The Scriptural passage you should consider before embarking on your prayers of the Mystery. -A call for a moment of silence in order to recollect yourself before entering the presence of God. -Each Mystery’s own unique Hail Mary, including within each a John Paul II recommended statement of faith “to pull wandering minds back to Christ and center them in the mystery.” -Seven meditations tailored to each Mystery, to accompany your recitation of the Hail Marys (but only employ one at a time). -A concluding short prayer asking God for the fruits specific to that Mystery. -Plus much more, so that finally you can begin to pray the Rosary as Saint John Paul wants you to pray it!

Inspired by Pope John Paul II's Apostolic Letter on "The Rosary of the Virgin Mary," this book gives instructions on how to pray the rosary for beginners to more advanced so that it becomes a "pathway to contemplation." This book also explains: -How to say the vocal prayers of the rosary -How to meditate on the mysteries -How to pray the rosary in a way to remain receptive to the highest form of prayer which is contemplation. -How to recognize the transition from meditation to contemplation from the teachings of St. John of the Cross and St. Teresa of Avila -Insights on prayer and the spiritual life from Carmelite spirituality, the Bible and the writings of the Saints. -Tips on saying the rosary as a family -How the rosary is a Biblical prayer.

It would be terrific for use in religious education programs." - Lonnie Sorensen, OCDS, Minnesota. "How to Pray the Rosary as a Pathway to Contemplation is a very kind book. I am not just saying kind in general terms. Kind as in very accommodating to those who have a genuine desire to pray the rosary. There are many books that teach the procedure of how to say the rosary but this one teaches about the disposition or motivation. This book is very easy to read and loving. I will promote it whenever I can." - Billie Vasquez, OCDS, president, Our Lady of the Holy Rosary Carmelite Community, Portland, OR

“Do we believe that Jesus can heal us and bring us back from the dead?”—Pope Francis Healing, in a word, is resurrection. “He forgives all your iniquities, He heals all your diseases, He redeems your life from the pit, He crowns you with steadfast love and mercy” (Ps 103:3-4). Here retreat master, Ignatian trained spiritual director and author Kathleen Beckman offers a guide for a personal or group healing retreat based on Divine Mercy in Scripture and in the lives of the Saints. Beckman skillfully helps us to see how the “rays of divine mercy” heal families, marriages, the sick, poor, suffering, friends, enemies, laity, clergy, our vocations, doubters, believers, those with diabolical suffering, sinners, saints, the unborn, the elderly, children, the Church and the whole world. Each chapter concludes with a “profile in mercy” – a reflection on a saint who was a vessel of mercy – including Blessed Mother Teresa, St. John Paul II, Cardinal Francis-Xavier Nguyen, Venerable Conchita Cabrera, St. Maria Goretti, St. Maximilian Kolbe, St. Gianna Molla, St. Faustina, St. Peter and the Virgin Mary. Also contained in this book are scriptural spiritual exercises for healing: -From unforgiveness to forgiveness -From fear to trust -From anxiety to peace -From shame to mercy -From pride to humility -From powerlessness to prayer -From sin-sickness to the Eucharist -From spiritual weakness to the Beatitudes -From worldliness to works of mercy -From spiritual warfare to Christ’s victory -Healing the culture through works of mercy Believers long and desperately need to encounter the living, joyful, truthful majestic face of the Father of Mercy—healer and lover of humanity. These pages lead to a healing encounter. Imprimatur: Most Reverend Kevin W. Vann, J.C.D., D.D. Bishop of Orange, September 23, 2015
