Description - Beads and Prayers by John Desmond Miler
The Christian rosary is a devotion in which a set of beads is used to keep tally of the prescribed prayers while pondering with Mary, the Mother of the Lord, on the significant events in the life of her son, Jesus Christ. The most popular of all Catholic devotions, rosaries are also well known in other religious traditions beginning in ancient times. A detailed and readable study of the Rosary in its various forms has long been needed. Devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary is at an all time high, judging by the popularity of parish Rosary groups, pilgrimages to Marian shrines and the many accounts of apparitions of Our Lady around the world. Dr. Miller's book aims to fill a real need for the many who wish to take their devotion and their prayer life to new depths, to understand the perennial importance of Christian meditation, and to understand more fully the tradition to which they belong.
