Praying the Rosary with St. John Paul II
Praying the Rosary with St. John Paul II by Our Sunday Visitor's Gretchen Crowe is a real spiritual treat. The book includes both the inspirational words of the Pope who would be Saint and also compelling reflections on his life and legacy.
Consider these words, issued by John Paul II, upon accepting the papacy:
"In the obedience of faith before Christ my Lord, abandoning myself to the Mother of Christ and the Church, and conscious of the great difficulties, accepto."
Ultimately, St. John Paul would risk his very life for the sake of the Church, as he courageously survived an assassin's bullet. As Crowe writes,
"He offered a true witness to bearing one's cross with patience and purpose."
Praying the Rosary with St. John Paul II is a guidebook to a sacred form of prayer that can significantly enrich the life of the reader. It is the type of book that you can turn to again and again to receive spiritual sustenance.
