Most Catholics are aware that Pope John Paul II added five new "luminous" mysteries to the rosary in 2002. But most do not realize this was only one of many changes the Pope recommended in the rosary. in The complete Rosary, eminent liturgist William Storey presents the full scope of the pope's reforms. They include a "focus" scripture text for each mystery, short "scripture tags" for each Hail Mary, closing prayers, and images. The purpose of this material is to convert what is too often a mechanical recitation of rote prayers into a rich experience of prayerful contemplation. The Complete Rosary includes everything needed to pray the rosary in the renewed way that John Paul II intended. The book also celebrates the history of this great devotion.
