Find the original... Oct 17, 2007
The Blessed Virgin herself gave us the Holy Rosary. John Paul II decided to add these "Luminous Mysteries" (though, to his credit, he stated they were optional). Even so: Was he so arrogant to think that he could improve on something given to us by the Mother of God?? Once those are added, it's no longer the Rosary.
The text of the original version is available on the Internet, and is in a convenient table form. It can be handily printed out and used to help meditate on the Mysteries of Our Lady's Rosary.
Rosary Prayer Book 2005! Jan 28, 2007
I have the original 1953 edition and wanted an updated edition. Of course the format has changed some but so far I am very pleased with the purchase. I use the book to lead a Rosary each Saturday morning with a group of about 8 men and find the meditations very thoughtful. I have not asked for feedback from the other men since we have only used the meditations for three or four times.
Sturdy, concise, small family prayer with historical overview Aug 18, 2006
After the forward there's a few pages about Fr. Peyton's family ministry including Family Theater and 5 pages explaining the historical development of the rosary of which many folks may be unaware,including the Battle of Lepanto and the incredulous victory against the Turks (and I dare say miraculous but you'll need to research the statistics and data elsewhere). There are easy to follow instructions with a simple diagram for how to pray the rosary. For each set of mysteries there is one small page (remember, this is pocket size but thick) with a New Testament verse, a paragraph meditation, and a short 1 or 2 sentence prayer relating the mystery and the meditation to the reader. This is one of the finest rosary meditation books I've seen for busy families. The best feature about this book is that each set of mysteries has not one, but TEN different pages, so that there are ten different sets of meditation/prayer pages for each mystery. Still today the phrase Fr. Peyton coined applies: the family that prays together stays together. No wonder hundreds of thousands gathered to pray with him wherever he visited, including Europe and South America. The life of the Apostles with Jesus is recalled with each mystery in the most basic, direct language to focus on God's plan and his strong yearning for the salvation of all souls via real, true love.
