Joy, Light, Sorrow and Splendour
Full Product Description
A mantra has structure too, defined as a constantly repeated prayer accompanied by meditation. And that’s the snag – ‘accompanied by meditation.’ The rosary is a Christian mantra, but the trick is to meditate on a thought while speaking words often only vaguely connected with the thought. This book, with 21 beautiful coloured illustrations and its profound but light touch, tackles that problem in a uniquely original way. Using the basic rosary form and the prescribed 20 episodes in the life of Jesus as topics for meditation, it punctuates each episode ten times by stepping through and fleshing out the topic frame by frame. In slowing the pace from a race to a stroll it allows time for heart and mind to engage. The effect is startling and fruitful: each meditation becomes a spiritual meal in itself, making the recitation of a full rosary almost too much to take in, one might even say over the top. The prayed rosary, already pleasing to God, becomes uplifting and delightful to the prayer too.
