A Contemplative Rosary: The Joyful Mysteries [CD]
by Bob Hurd, Elaine Park, Charles Rohrbacher
& Bishop Michael Warfel

Inspired by Pope John Paul's apostolic letter on the rosary (Rosarium Virginis Mariae), Bob Hurd and friends have created a resource that invites us to rediscover the rosary as a form of contemplative prayer. Designed for both communal and individual recitation, A Contemplative Rosary engages the whole person through music, Scripture readings, icons, and meditations.


  • Allows you to fully "sing the rosary" -- provides simple chant settings for the Our Father, the Hail Mary and the Glory to the Father

  • Includes choral harmonies and instrumental accompaniment, with parts for cello, piano, and handbells, for communal recitation (complete score available in Leader's Guide)

  • Includes several pieces for gathering and preparing to pray the rosary and a song for sending forth

  • Beautifully recorded CD illustrates how A Contemplative Rosary sounds in its most communal form, prayed in a church with an assembly, presiding minister, choir and readers

  • One CD for each of the four sets of mysteries: joyful, luminous, sorrowful and glorious

  • An excellent learning tool, the CD can also serve as accompaniment for individual and small group recitation

  • People's book and CD-ROM feature stunning, full-color icons for all 20 mysteries; the CD-ROM lets you project them onto a wall or screen for groups to see and study throughout the prayer

Scripture & Meditations:

  • Includes Scripture verses for proclamation by a reader at various points across each decade

  • People's book includes biblical meditations prepared by Dr. Elaine Park, professor of biblical studies at Mt. Angel Seminary, St. Benedict, OR

  • Designed especially for personal recitation, the reflections invite the reader to delve more deeply into each mystery before turning the page to study the icon and pray the decade
