The Seeker's Guide to the Rosary invites you to explore the mysteries of the rosary and apply its communal language of faith to modern-day life. This comprehensive guide gives you the opportunity to develop a rich and purposeful connection with the rosary, with meditation and ultimately with God. Read of others' experience with rosary meditation, along with the author's, and discover why the rosary is being revisited around the world as a powerful meditative tool.

I’m a jazz singer. I’ve spent 15 years of my professional life singing jazz in clubs and concert halls, at weddings and in studios, and very occasionally in church. I thought I was way too hip for something so antiquated as the rosary. No one could be more surprised than I am to find that I’ve written a book on it. Then again, no one was more surprised than I was to discover how effective the rosary is either. As unlikely as it seemed, I felt my own little annunciation in agreeing to this project. The rosary, quite frankly, rescued me, or rather brought me to the Rescuer. This was an experience I was anxious to share with anyone else who was struggling as I had been. Furthermore, I’d expended so much energy looking for the “right” meditation, the “right” kind of prayer outside of my own faith tradition, that I felt strongly impelled to remind other Catholics, especially younger Catholics who were not raised on rosary meditation, that they have an exceptional tool for meditation probably right under their noses, perhaps gathering dust somewhere in their sock drawer. And so I issue this suggestion to anyone looking for answers, companionship, comfort, deeper communion with God, a rest from fear or resentment: Pick up the rosary for just 30 days, even if you just say one decade a day, and see what happens. I believe you may be surprised to discover what treasures await you in those tiny, dusty beads.About the Author:
