Praying the Rosary Like Never Before (This Lighthouse cd can be found on the cd rack)
Dr. Edward Sri is a nationally sought Catholic speaker who appears regularly on EWTN, and is a founding leader of FOCUS (Fellowship of Catholic University Students). In this discussion of his book “The New Rosary in Scripture: Biblical Insights on Praying the Twenty Mysteries” (Servant Books), Dr. Sri shares John Paul II’s practical strategies for praying the Rosary better, so that you can encounter Jesus more deeply in prayer.

Awesome! Dr. Sri covers this subject in depth. I’ll need to listen to it two or three times to find all the golden nuggets hidden in this talk. Richard – Simi Valley, CA The rosary is all about Jesus… from now on, ‘praying’ the Rosary will be much more than ‘reciting’ the Rosary! Jane, Kansas City, MO

We are two Catholic Churches close to downtown Freeport, IL. Our communities are over 150 years old and have been dedicated to our lord Jesus Christ since our inception. We believe in God the Father almighty, creator of heaven and earth, and in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord, who was concieved by the Holy Spirit, born of ythe Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilot, was crucified, died and was buried; he descended into hell; on the third day he rose again from the dead; he ascended into heaven, and is seated at the right hand of God the father almighty; from there he will come to judge the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and life everlasting. Amen.
