Meditations on the Holy Rosary - Fr. Dolindo Ruotolo
Does your mind often wander when you recite the Holy Rosary? Spiritual master Fr. Dolindo Ruotolo — called “a saint” by Padre Pio — will teach you to deepen your powers of recollection as you reflect upon the sacred mysteries. Here is the Rosary companion that will help you develop a personal relationship with Jesus Christ by entering into the events of His life through the prism of your own.
These brief, compelling reflections — written as conversations between Jesus and the soul — will move you into fruitful contemplation. Breathtaking artwork accompanies the mysteries to assist you in meditating upon each scene. As God speaks to your heart, these powerful prayers will nourish your soul and help you grow in divine intimacy.
Don Dolindo's meditations on the Joyful Mysteries are intensely Eucharistic and will remind you of God's ever-present love for you in the Sacred Host. As you journey with Jesus in the Sorrowful Mysteries, He will console you in your sufferings and draw you into closer union with Himself. And Our Lady will intercede for you, strengthened by hope in the Glorious Mysteries, to attain the crown of Heaven. The Luminous Mysteries include stirring meditations from the Gospels to deepen your understanding of the miracles taking place.
This book also features excerpts from Don Dolindo's mystical writings on the Annunciation and on the Visitation of Our Lady to Elizabeth. He often wrote short teachings for his directees, both laity and priests. In these pages, Don Dolindo speaks with the familiarity of a spiritual father for his children. As he guides your heart in this little way of humble devotion, you will learn to:
Be open to the Holy Spirit's gifts and order your day to follow God's will
Enkindle a passionate love for God and charity for souls
Develop peace of mind, as you trust in the Lord more deeply
Experience God's healing mercy in your soul and share it with others
Enter into the mysteries of the lives of Jesus and Mary with greater devotion
Engaging and comforting, these spiritual gems will fortify you along the road to holiness. This book is beneficial both for beginners and those more advanced in the spiritual life. Each bead of the Holy Rosary you pray going forward will be as a fragrant rose offered to Our Lady. In turn, she will wrap you in her mantle of protection and draw you closer to the Heart of her Son.
