Gretchen's Latest from OSV: Why the Rosary, Why Now

Why the RosaryWhy the Rosary, Why Now? is an accessible and inspiring compilation of texts woven together with personal anecdotes that outline eight persuasive reasons why the Rosary should be an essential part of every Catholic’s life. Using the eloquent and inspiring writings of holy men and women who share a love of, and commitment to, the Marian prayer, editor Gretchen R. Crowe makes a compelling case for why praying the Rosary is more critical in today’s 21st-century world than ever before.

Why the Rosary, Why Now is not a typical “how-to book” about the Rosary. This is the "why-to book” that will inspire you to reach for your Rosary more often, and in doing so to receive the gifts it offers to each of us and the world.
