About this item

If you already say the Rosary, this book will help you pray it with greater devotion. If you don't say the Rosary, you'll discover why you should—and how to begin.

Unlike most Rosary books, The Rosary of Our Lady doesn't assume you already have a special love for Mary. Rather, it shows why such love is appropriate to all Christians who yearn to grow closer to Christ.

In these pages, you'll learn how to pray the Rosary as it was meant to be prayed and to identify—and overcome—the bad habits that too easily develop in those of us who pray the Rosary often.

Whether you've already spent many hours praying the Rosary or only want a simple, clear, and holy book to introduce the Rosary to a relative or friend, then this book is the book for you. You'll also learn:

  • How to take your daily concerns with you to the Rosary—and leave them there.
  • Who should—and shouldn't—pray the Rosary
  • What makes up the Rosary? The beads? The thoughts behind them? Or must there be something deeper?
  • The paradox of the Rosary: Why is the Rosary both easy and difficult?
  • How much of the Rosary should you be praying?
  • How to pray the Rosary . . . even in times of exhaustion and stress.
  • The one petition you must make if you're going to pray the Rosary well.
  • The "paramount truth" that is the key to linking the words of your prayers to the mystery you're contemplating.
  • Three practical hints for those who have difficulty with the Rosary.

"Guardini writes with simple eloquence about the Rosary, gently leading the reader to a deeper and more profound understanding and appreciation of this sacramental treasure. The Rosary of Our Lady is especially valuable because Guardini explains not only how to pray the Rosary but why to pray it."

"Guardini's work helps us to place ourselves in God's story of eternal salvation, and helps us to see how, through - praying the rosary, we are led home to God."

"The Rosary is a device without equal whereby we come to adore God in proper humility and peace - and Guardini's book is an invaluable guide to the Rosary."

Michael Berg
New Oxford Review

"A book to be reread, studied, and used as a springboard for further thought on the matter."

The Mother of God cordially invites you...
Guardini is one of the most significant thinkers, theologians, and priests of any century A.D. Fr. Guardini explains all we need to know about the practice of this devotion and our relationship to the Mother of God. A wonderful book for everyone - Catholic or not.

Must-Read for any Christian
This is a fantastic work that digs deep into the Holy Rosary. The first half deals with the Holy Rosary as a prayer: the elements, mindset, and goal. The second half consists of meditations on each of the mysteries of the Rosary. As a recent convert to Catholicism from an Evangelical Christian background, this book really explained the Rosary clearly and deeply and played a key role in removing my cultural aversion to this amazing and timeless method of prayer. Definitely recommended for Catholics and interested Protestants alike!

Wisdom: distilled, and expanded!
Sublime, in a word. Very knowledgeable, sophisticated, and beautifully rendered. Succeeds probably better than anything else on the subject. Wise, timeless, even poetic treatment of this devotion.

Fantastic meditations
I wasn't sure what to expect when I started this book, but the meditations on the three traditional mysteries of the Rosary are fantastic and well worth the read. Do yourself a favor and read it.

Rosary of Our Lady
A real classic for those with devotion to Jesus Christ under the patronage of Our Blessed Mother. The author a German theologian opposed to Hitler wrote many classic theological works among which is the Rosary. Highly recommended for those seeking God's mercy.
