IRVING, Texas, March 2, 2021 /Christian Newswire/ -- Bishop Barron's Word on Fire Catholic Ministries has released a new book and free video series about one of the most widely recognized prayers of Catholicism—and also one of the most misunderstood: the Rosary.
"The Rosary with Bishop Robert Barron" (https://rosary.wordonfire.org/book-and-rosary) invites readers to join one of the world's leading Catholic evangelists in exploring the meditative depth, rhythmic beauty, and spiritual power of this ancient prayer. After a brief introduction to the Rosary by Pope St. John Paul II and a walkthrough of its various prayers, the book presents the full text of the Rosary for each set of mysteries—Joyful, Sorrowful, Glorious, and Luminous—together with beautiful color artwork and reflections from Bishop Barron. In an afterword from Matt Nelson, the Assistant Director of the Word on Fire Institute—who "re-entered the Church after several years fallen away"—reflects on the figure of Mary and her role as mother in the lives of Christians. Included with the book is a rosary handmade in Jerusalem from durable rope and polished olive-wood beads.
The book has been released alongside a free video series online (wordonfire.org/rosary), in which Bishop Barron—accompanied by beautiful music and stirring imagery—guides viewers through the Rosary. The video series also includes a brief reflection from Bishop Barron on why praying the Rosary is important. "The Rosary—a concretizing, quieting, savoring prayer—has enormous spiritual power," Bishop Barron explains. "And it therefore has enormous social and evangelical power."
Word on Fire Catholic Ministries (wordonfire.org) exists to draw people into the Body of Christ, which is the Church, and thereby give them access to all the gifts that Jesus wants his people to enjoy. To be most effective in this mission, Word on Fire places an emphasis and urgency on the use of contemporary forms of media and innovative communication technologies.
