God is a timeless Spirit, Who resides in His eternal now, without beginning, without end. It is only because of His great Love for us that He subjects Himself to the sequential bonds of time as the Word Incarnate. Born of the Virgin Mary, Jesus comes into time to save and to reconcile the Father's creation from the bondage of sin and eternal damnation. God the Father, in doing this, teaches, governs, and sanctifies us by the life, death, and resurrection of His Son, Jesus, and the Holy Catholic Church He founded.

The traditional Rosary is a presentation of the mysteries of our redemption, given sequentially, and expanded by Blessed Pope John Paul II, to illuminate the perfect knowledge of God, Who is Love. What would happen if we enter into the Sacred Mysteries of the Rosary of our Redemption in a timeless way? Would there be a universal, mystical connection if all the first, second, third, fourth, and fifth mysteries are juxtaposed to enable a more timeless, rather than sequential consideration?

Would this method of focus allow us to better grasp the complete mystery, or at least a fuller picture of God's timeless Love for us?

I invite you as well: Enter in.

About the Author:

The author's mother consecrated herself to Jesus through Mary with the Saint Louis de Montfort formula before she was married. Brian Joseph Horan would, however, take much longer to follow in her footsteps by making this same consecration himself. The fourth child of five, Horan was born in Trenton, New Jersey, in October, 1956. His father, James, and mother, Elizabeth, were both practicing Catholics and raised their children accordingly.

At age nineteen, Horan was involved in a near-fatal automobile accident, which left him with a severed ear, a broken jaw, and in a coma. His mother was called and told by the doctors to come to the hospital quickly, for they did not think he would survive. She hastily went to North Carolina with his sister, Maureen, spending the next three days praying the rosary by the author's side.

Horan came out of his coma on that third day, mumbling something about a beautiful Lady. He went on to recuperate fully and have a daughter of his own, who he named Maureen.

Brian Joseph Horan became actively involved in Catholic parish life, fulfilling roles as a Reader and an Extraordinary Minister of the Eucharist. He also became a third and fourth grade teacher at Stockton Elementary School in New Jersey.

This book is the author's small way of thanking the Blessed Mother for the love and maternal care she showed to him and to all the children her Divine Son has redeemed.

Review:

"The very essence of prayer is lifting up our hearts and minds to God, and as we pray the Rosary and meditate on its mysteries we become ever more aware of God's love for us.

"Each of the Rosaries presented here, including the Praise and Worship Rosary, Spiritual Fruit Rosary, Divine Mercy Rosary, Penitential Rosary, and Timeless Scriptural Rosary, is a beautiful prayer which blends the mysteries together and can enhance our appreciation of God's Love and the events of our Redemption. I especially like the Timeless Scriptural Rosary with its accompanying Scripture passages. It would fit in very well as a part of a Holy Hour in the presence of the Blessed Sacrament.

"This booklet was obviously a great labor of Love, and I commend Brian for putting it together." --Rev. Michael J. Burns, Pastor, Saint Mary's Church, Bordentown, NJ

"About five days a week I go to the fitness room in our clubhouse and usually spend one hour on the treadmill. Every treadmill has a television and is positioned in front of a window with a lovely view. At first I would watch TV for the one-hour workout. I soon realized that the time would be better spent praying the rosary. However, within a few months I found it difficult to maintain my focus and meditate on each mystery. Then Brian gave me a copy of his Timeless Rosary. Each treadmill has a ledge to place a book while working out. Although I fell in love with his 'Penitential Rosary,' I have prayed each of his 'Timeless Rosaries.' The blessings for me have been that I can now maintain my meditation while on the treadmill and I am only occasionally distracted with someone's greeting or loud laughter. I congratulate and thank Brian Horan for his wonderful book and I highly recommend you pray The Timeless Rosary." --Charles F. Prettyman, Prof. Emeritus
