Item description for The Riches of the Rosary by Gabriel Harty...
Overview Gabriel M. Harty OP, the Rosary Priest, was born in 1921 and ordained a secular priest for the Archdiocese of Dublin in 1945. After serving as chaplain and parish curate for some years, he made the decision to devote his life to the service of the Mother of God in whatever way she wished. His search led him to the Dominican Order, and he was professed a friar of the Order of Preachers in 1950. Since then, Father Gabriel has directed all his energies to the apostolate of the Rosary. Apart from his many preaching assignments, he has researched his subject in libraries and archives throughout Europe. He is especially interested in the healing power of the Rosary, and has established prayer groups and communities in every part of Ireland. He has produced literally hundreds of booklets, pamphlets and audio tapes on every aspect of the Rosary. His autobiographical Make the Wild Rose Bloom was published in 1992. Above all, however, Father Gabriel is a man of deep and contemplative prayer, a simple child of Mary, Queen of heaven and earth, and totally devoted to her service. This book is a definitive statement of the history and development of the Rosary, revealing, as its title suggests, the riches of this most precious gift of God to his people. But, more than that, it is a revelation of Father Hartys own deeply personal prayer-life, the accumulation of all the wisdom and love he has absorbed and shared during his half-century of dedicated ministry.

contains reasons we should say the rosary and benefits Aug 15, 1999
this book is unique in that i have never read a book that completely talked about why a person should say the rosary-and what benefits a person can derive from saying it. it is very thouroughly explained and if a person is serious about prayer -this book can help in the development of a better prayer life because as you will read, the rosary leads to contemplative prayer, the highest type of prayer. the book also talks about the evolution of the rosary -how it really came to be-beyond what it basically known. it is a very good book
