Usefulness of the Rosary to prayer life Nov 3, 2006
Having read other offerings by Fr. Guardini from the Sophia Press, I decided to tackle that mystery, the Rosary. The translation seems clear and straightforward. Fr. Guardini sets the stage to either accept or reject adding the Rosary to one's prayer life, its history, how to use it, its place within adoration of the Lord, in a way that is accessable to Protestant and I would think, waivering Roman Catholic alike. The method suggests whole meditations on the life of the Lord that I found thoughtful for a would-be novice at the discipline. I recommend the book for the curious as well as the convinced.
Guardini Makes Sense of the Rosary May 22, 1999
Like most Catholic school kids, we prayed the Rosary occasionally at school, but it was just a bunch of Hail Mary's and Our Father's and I have to say I didn't get much out of the Rosary at that time.
Guardini's book made the Rosary much more real for me. It's a short book and won't take you long to read, but you will read it again and again. There's so much in the few pages that you will be amazed at what you rediscover every time you read this book.
An unsurpassed initiation to the Rosary Apr 10, 1999
Guardini's small book on the Rosary is a splendid meditation which can offer benefit both to those unfamiliar to the Rosary as a devotion and to those who presently pray the Rosary. The brief length of the book belies the wealth of wisdom and faith that can be found inside. The short passages demand only one reading to have lasting impact on its reader, yet Guardini's words will draw the reader back for repeated readings, only to discover a deeper sense of mystery and beauty each time. Do not be surprised if something in this book moves you to tears! Guardini does not need flowerly prose to engage his readers. Rather, he speaks simply and plainly so to convey concisely the very core of the eternal Christian mystery as seen through the example of Mary. This book is all the more powerful for this fact and its simple (yet not simplistic) and direct tone makes it a prefect, timeless tool for comtemporary Christians who hunger for a deepened sense of meaning and mystery in their faith life but get fustrated by "superfluousness" and "trendiness" of other spiritual guides. Recommended for both those beginning a Rosary devotion or those wishing to deepen an ongoing one.
This book is an act of contemplation. Oct 30, 1998
The Rosary of Our Lady, by Romano Guardini, is a meditation on the rosary and the meaning of the rosary. It is, in itself, like a visit to a haven - or garden - of contemplation. It is restful, beautiful, deep and illuminating. It is a very sweet, holy little book, and discusses the form of the rosary, the person of Mary, Christ, and our faith. It is, like all of Guardini's books, highly recommended and well worth reading. Romano Guardini's books are, in my opinion, the most important spiritual books of this century - he was a great great author.
