ROSARY OF THE VIRGIN MARY
(Four DVD set $20; four audio CD set $15. Confraternity of Christ the Priest, Thurgoona, NSW)
In the introduction to Pope John Paul II's Rosarium Virginis Mariae, we read: "The Rosary of the Virgin Mary, which gradually took form in the second millenium under the guidance of the Spirit of God, is a prayer loved by countless Saints and encouraged by the Magisterium. Simple, yet profound, it still remains, at the dawn of the third millenium, a prayer of great significance, destined to bring forth a harvest of holiness.
Faithful to John Paul II's "renewal" of the Rosary and his introduction of the Luminous Mysteries, The Rosary of the Virgin Mary DVD and Audio CD sets re-introduce the Christian family to this "School of Mary" and the contemplation of the beauty of the face of Christ.
This prayerful and catechetical tool contains meditations for every Hail Mary and gently draws the family into the love of Christ, vocational discernment and action and to a deeper appreciation of the gift of the Church, the sacraments and the value of human life.
A CCS (Confraternity of Christ the Priest) Media Production, the Rosary of the Virgin Mary DVD/CD set was produced over the past three years by Fr Joel Wallace CCS with the youth and children of the Immaculate Heart of Mary Parish, Thurgoona (NSW), and with priests of the Albury parishes.
