A Prayer of Hope

Through the ministry of EWTN so many of us were able to watch and take part in the funeral services for the late Father Benedict Groeschel, CFR. During the prayer service on Friday evening in Sacred Heart Basilica in Newark, NJ, the Franciscan Sisters of the Renewal who led the Rosary, read excerpts from a book on the Rosary written by Father Benedict. I was very touched by those meditations and I found the book in our community library.

As we continue in this month of October dedicated to our Blessed Mother and her Rosary, I invite you to discover this gem of a book and allow Father Benedict, through his meditations, reflections and comments, help you pray this powerful prayer. The book, “The Rosary: Chain of Hope” is published by Ignatius Press. This special volume includes the full text of Pope Saint John Paul II’s apostolic letter on the Rosary (Rosarium Virginis).
