Scriptural Rosary

Below you will find resources for the scriptural Rosary. They can be used to facilitate personal or group prayer as well as in educational settings.

The slides contain both the passages which each of the mysteries is rooted in along side a piece of art or icon that depicts the mystery. The Scriptural passages and pieces of art are worth considering in their own right, but here they come together to shed light on these important episodes of the life of Christ as viewed alongside His mother, Mary.

Each slide show contains a short theological exposition on the Joyful Mysteries written by St. John Paul II in the Apostolic Letter, Rosarium Virginis Mariae (20) in order to enable the individual or group to gain a deeper appreciation of the profundity of these mysteries and how they all, ultimately, speak deeply of the salvific life and work of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ so as to draw us into greater conformity and participation in His life through the power of the Holy Spirit and the intercession of His Mother, Mary.
