The Luminous Mysteries
Holy Heroes - AUDIO DISC
For years we struggled with praying the Rosary with our children. They found it boring and hard because they saw it as a lot of the same prayers and not as a meditation. We had to train them to think about the Mysteries of the Rosary as the stories from the Bible. We used this CD on car trips and even praying at night in our home, and by doing so, our children not only pray the Rosary, but they really understand it and the Scripture that goes with it.
The Luminous Mysteries:
The second of the 4-volume set of the Mysteries of the Rosary includes an introduction explaining a common misunderstanding about the Rosary and how to better pray it, followed by a Scriptural Rosary, including more than a dozen children. Each mystery is introduced by an explanation of "what happened in the mystery." Then, before each "Hail Mary," a child reads a verse from the Scriptural revelation of the mystery. At the conclusion, hear about the history of the Rosary and how it developed over the centuries into its current form today. Original orchestral music by William Straub aids the beauty of the meditations.
The Rosary is, as Pope St. John Paul II said, the Gospel message in its entirety. And, the Rosary is the best way to teach children the Gospel. What other opportunity do we have in which children can learn about the life of Jesus and Scripture while praying a devotion recommended by Saints and Popes throughout the ages? But many, including myself, could never get past all the repeating of words to the meditation. With this Scriptural Rosary CD, we taught our children to understand and meditate on the Rosary - not just say the words.
