It would be terrific for use in religious education programs." - Lonnie Sorensen, OCDS, Minnesota. "How to Pray the Rosary as a Pathway to Contemplation is a very kind book. I am not just saying kind in general terms. Kind as in very accommodating to those who have a genuine desire to pray the rosary. There are many books that teach the procedure of how to say the rosary but this one teaches about the disposition or motivation. This book is very easy to read and loving. I will promote it whenever I can." - Billie Vasquez, OCDS, president, Our Lady of the Holy Rosary Carmelite Community, Portland, OR
