Item description for The Jesus Prayer Rosary by Michael Cleary...
Overview While Roman Catholics have used the Rosary for centuries, focusing on events in the life of Mary, many more people are discovering that rhythmic prayer with beads is a spiritually enriching and therapeutic experience. Equally, meditative repetition of the ancient Jesus Prayer has become part of the spirituality of many Christians. This book draws these great spiritual traditions together and offers Christians of all backgrounds a Jesus-centred way of praying with rosary beads. Ideal for complete beginners, it includes basic instruction on how to pray with beads and offers biblical readings from throughout Christ's life in place of the traditional Mysteries of Joy, Sorrow, Glory and Light. The scripture readings focus on:* The infancy of Christ* Jesus' ministry * The Passion* Resurrection and transformation in Christ Instead of reciting the Hail Mary at each bead, the Jesus Prayer, the Lord's Prayer or the Grace is said and biblical prayers are provided for centrepiece prayers. A complete resource for praying privately or in groups, this will open up the riches of Eastern and Catholic spirituality for all.
