Dive into the timeless riches of the Rosary from the perspective Pope Saint John Paul II’s Apostolic Letter written in 2002, Rosarium Virginis Mariae. One of the greatest gifts of our Faith is our relationship with Mary, the Mother of God. The Rosary invites us into deeper prayer with Jesus through the meditating on his life and mission. If you have never prayed a Rosary or if you pray one every day, this study will invite you deeper into the mystery of the Incarnation, the life of Christ, reignite your relationship with Mary and bring graces and blessings into your life and the lives of those around you.
Navigating the study
Each chapter is divided into three sections. For a more leisurely 9 week study, groups can work through two of the three sections. For a 6 week study, groups can either move through the sections more rapidly or are selective about which sections to complete. It is not expected that all the questions should be answered in one session or at all.
The commentary for this study was written by Emily Stimpson Chapman, who also wrote our studies on Letter to Women, Humanae Vitae (Of Human Life), Setting the World Ablaze: St. Catherine of Siena, and St. Hildegard of Bingen -Discovering the Doctors of the Church.
