This delightful and inviting book offers an introduction to praying with a rosary, which began as a simple string of one hundred and fifty knots to enable ordinary Christians to join in the daily recital of the Psalms in the medieval church. Today, the rosary provides a unique way of meditating on the birth, death and resurrection of Jesus. Always favoured in Catholic devotion, it is now being discovered by Christians of all traditions as a means of enriching prayer. Anne Vail explores a variety of ways of praying the rosary, for busy people and contemplatives alike. A gentle meditation on each of the fifteen mysteries is provided, each one illustrated with an exquisite wood engraving by the renowned twentieth-century artist and poet, David Jones. Text and illustration combine in The Rosary to produce a feast for the senses and nourishment for the soul.
