Rosary Meditation
In the 1970s, Mother Angelica wrote a mini-book titled My Life in the Rosary, with meditations on the Joyful, Sorrowful, and Glorious Mysteries of the Rosary. Those meditations were later printed in the book Praying with Mother Angelica (EWTN Publishing, 2016). St. John Paul II promulgated the Luminous Mysteries in 2002, when Mother Angelica’s health did not allow her to write further reflections. Therefore, Praying with Mother Angelica includes reflections on the Luminous Mysteries that were taken from her teachings and written in Mother’s “style.” This eBook includes short excerpts from those meditations on the Joyful, Luminous, Sorrowful, and Glorious Mysteries of the Most Holy Rosary.

Praying the Rosary In Tie of Pandemic

The Rosary eBook aims at helping the faithful to contemplate the Gospel with Mary, our Mother, in the light of a world in crisis generated by COVID-19 and open our hearts to the hope of the Good News of Jesus-Christ. You will find real testimonies from people affected by the pandemic, in several ways. The writers, members of Vatican COVID-19 Commission, intended to guide the prayer by linking some of the painful and struggling stories of people from all over the world with the contemplation of the different mysteries of the Rosary. 

"These are times of suffering, division and uncertainty. But at the same time, this challenging moment is an opportunity to change and to prepare a healthier future. With our gaze fixed on Jesus and contemplating the luminous, sorrowful, joyous and glorious mysteries of His life, we can embrace the hope of the Kingdom of God that opens us to new horizons. Guided by the Virgin Mary, who knew how to keep things in her suffering heart, let us gather together in prayer while we work for the wellbeing of people, institutions and the planet​. The Church’s common action in the face of this pandemic finds its source in prayer, in the service of Christ's mission. This meditative Rosary can help many people in these moments of crisis because Mary, our Mother, is a powerful ally to look up to with hope at the times to come.”
