Why has the rosary remained such a popular Catholic devotional prayer? In this upbeat and easy-to-read book, Catholic author Mitch Finley explains that the simplicity and depth of the rosary make it a prayer for all seasons. The rosary is perfect for those times when words can’t express our feelings, when we want to contemplate the basic truths of our faith, or when we simply want to enter into God’s presence. Finley includes a brief and accurate history of the rosary, explains why it is a Christ-centered prayer, and provides background on the individual prayers of the rosary and a short commentary on each of the twenty mysteries. This book will help Catholics who have prayed the rosary all their lives but want to know more about it—as well as those who want to begin anew or try it for the first time.

Mitch Finley, an award-winning Catholic writer and speaker, has authored more than 30 books, including The Joy of Being Catholic and The Seven Gifts of the Holy Spirit. He is currently staff writer for the official newspaper of the Catholic Diocese of Spokane, Washington. Mitch resides in Spokane with his wife, Kathleen, who is an author and marriage counselor. They are the parents of three adult sons.
