If you Give Someone a Rosary, Do this One Thing

In full disclosure, I was sent a copy of each of these books in exchange for an honest review.  I highly recommend each of them!

The Rosary is a beautiful devotion, but it can also be an intimidating one.

I’ve been praying for decades, and still the Apostle’s Creed can become the Nicene Creed and that last prayer, well, I think I finally have it memorized.

Then, some people add different prayers at the end.  Some only pray the Sorrowful Mysteries, and so on and so on.

So, if you give someone a Rosary, it’s a good idea to pair it with a guide on how to pray the Rosary.

We have 3 newly published works that are sure to be a good fit!

Let’s begin with our youngest prayer partners!

For children first learning how to pray the Rosary, I recommend My Little Patron Rosary Guide.

Aleesa McCarthy, founder of My Little Patron, has written a great book for children to follow along during the Rosary! The My Little Patron Rosary Guide is perfect for little ones who are just learning how to read!

This rosary guide can be used as if you were praying
the rosary as you read. If you don’t have a rosary
handy just use the printed tracker at the bottom of the
page to keep track of your prayers.

All the prayers of the rosary are included for you in the
beginning of this book along with a page of cut out tabs
you can use to mark each set of mysteries for ease of use.
There is a general diagram and outline for the order of
the rosary and in the back of the book is a section for prayer
intentions with blank writing pages.

This book is meant to be very simplistic in design so each
mystery of the rosary is just announced. You can look to
the illustrations and speech bubbles for more details.

For adults that may forget how to pray the Rosary, or who maybe are just learning about this great devotion, we suggest The Beads: Rosary Meditations Guided by the Saints

This book has clear, simple instructions on how to pray the Rosary, visual art so one can reflect on each mystery more deeply and meditations from Saint Alphonsus Ligouri and Saint Bonaventure. These two Saints are great inspirations to all Christians, but your loved ones suffering from arthritis or Crohn’s disease will have a special connection with them.

For the person who is easily distracted during prayer, I recommend A Painted Rosary from Thy Olive Tree.

A Painted Rosary cleverly pairs a modern and sleek design with the richness of traditional sacred art to transform how you pray the Rosary. Increase prayerful focus and deepen your meditation as you become immersed in the 20 mysteries of the Rosary through paintings from the 11th – 17th centuries. With limited distractions and containing just enough content without being overwhelming, A Painted Rosary is designed to be used while praying.

Each turn of a page reveals a mystery of the Rosary with its corresponding full-page painting, spiritual fruit, and a Printed Bead Tracker. Simply move your thumb down the page of beads to keep your place, allowing the colors of the tracker to pull you into the scene of the painting. (See below for info on our Rosary bead stickers which add a textured feel as you pray!)

While designed for adults, A Painted Rosary is suitable for older children as well. It is perfect for those learning to pray the Rosary, those who want to pray on the go, and especially for those who desire to enter more deeply into the mysteries of the Rosary and the life of Christ.
