Sacred Story Rosary


Connecting the themes of Sacred Story Prayer to the classic meditations of the Rosary, this book is designed to help us enter more deeply into the meaning and the significance of this devotion. Those who already love the Rosary will find this a very valuable new addition to their spiritual practice, and newcomers will find Sacred Story Rosary a particularly accessible introduction to the powerful prayer. “Twenty years of praying aided by hefty doses of graced inspiration have led me to a profoundly fruitful practice of this great prayer. I hope it helps you, too, find a new path to God’s graces through this most popular of Catholic/Christian devotional prayers.”
– Fr. Bill Watson SJ
