Great Little Rosary Book

By whom else, but Amy Welborn: Praying the Rosary: With the Joyful, Luminous, Sorrowful, and Glorious Mysteries. I like it not only because it’s got ample questions for meditation and reflection, but especially because of the incredible iconography it presents for each mystery. We use it when we do the family rosary; our kids enjoy looking at the icons while we all pray.

Some people don’t like using rosary books, thinking it distracts from the purity of the experience. I think that’s true in general: ideally, we’d prayer the rosary in a perfect state of mediation, where prayer and mysteries meld in our minds and hearts, carrying us to heaven. But I think such books are good for stages on the way, especially for beginners (which most Catholics shall ever remain, I think) as well as those who need a fresh way of approaching the rosary.
