St. Alphonsus de Liguori, the saintly founder of the Redemptorist Congregation, is famed for his romantic and beautiful descriptions of the lives of Our Lord and His Holy Mother. Drawing from the Fathers, the Mystics and from his own wealth of piety, St. Alphonsus famously wrote in a manner designed to cut straight to the heart, and to provoke a response of deeper conversion and contrition in the soul of the reader.
In this work, for the first time, the collected meditations of this great saint have been attached to the individual mysteries of the Holy Rosary, indeed, to the individual beads of each mystery of the Holy Rosary. In this treasure trove of contemplative material, you will find hundreds of carefully selected passages to aid you and your family in the devout recitation of Our Lady’s Holy Rosary.
The book covers both the 15 Traditional Mysteries of the Rosary as well as the Mysteries of Light. An additional set of mysteries, the Hopeful Mysteries, is also included, as a means of contemplating the events in the life of Our Lady prior to the Annunciation and her prophetic foreshadowing.
