My weekend was busy, but not so much that I didn't keep picking up and reading the just released book by Karen Edmisten, The Rosary: Keeping Company with Jesus and Mary. Karen's first book is simply delightful! From the moment I opened this tidy little tome, I knew it was going to be a permanent fixture on my nightstand :)
Her purposeful writing has an eloquent style and an encouraging voice for anyone seeking solace and an understanding of the Rosary. Even for seasoned Catholics, this is a gentle reminder as to how important the rosary is to our faith and our spirituality.
She gives reasons for "Making it Work" and joyful applause for our perseverance in "showing up for prayer." And the best part is that she shares her true love and fervor for Our Lord and acknowledges wholeheartedly that by learning and saying the rosary as often as possible can only lead you closer to Him.
Many congratulations Karen, your work is a true blessing for us all!!
