Beautiful book! Jan 8, 2010
I'm surprised there are no reviews of this book yet. It's the most beautiful book on the rosary I've read, and I've read several. I'm not a Catholic, or even a Christian anymore, but this book really attracted me. It has 150 short essays/stories by various people about the impact of the rosary on their lives. These stories are arranged like the beads of a rosary itself; Hopcke calls it a "prosary". There is also a chapter on the Luminous Mysteries; since they're so new, he didn't have time to gather stories, so he asks questions of the reader to invite responses like those of his other contributors.
This is a book that can be savored and picked up and opened at random. The contributors include priests, counselors, lay people, gay people, all kinds of people, which makes it very interesting reading. Hopcke doesn't identify the writers of the stories except in an acknowledgement at the end, so the reader is left to occasionally recognize that this story sounds like it might have been written by the same person we met in a previous chapter. That ads to the interest, at least for me.
