Book Description

Latest Update Made on July 22, 2012 - If you've purchased previously, you can get the latest update pushed to your account for free by contacting Amazon.com customer service.

This IS the NUMBER ONE selling Rosary book on Amazon.com and has been every month since its release in May 2011. This Rosary tool has also been consistently in the Amazon top ten best selling books of Prayer since every month since its release; this includes paperback and kindle prayer books. Buy with confidence and may it enhance your opportunity to pray to Our Lady.

This is a tool to allow you to use your Kindle to pray the rosary. This version of the rosary is intended to allow for praying the rosary with the turn of each page acting as a rosary bead. It contains all four rosary mysteries Joyful, Sorrowful, Glorious, and Luminous. The table of contents will allow you to jump to any of the four mysteries.

Given that the Kindle, Nook, and other eBook devices allow thousands of books to be carried within them, it makes sense that the most powerful prayer in the world should also be included. Turning one page for each bead of the rosary makes the device feel and respond like a rosary necklace. Praying the rosary is an art which includes a certain rhythm of changing beads and prayers while in contemplation. Other rosary books either teach the prayers or outline the process but don’t account for the rhythm an art of contemplation that the process itself supports. This version allows that process to be integrated into the book itself; no beads required. While I personally love rosary beads, I don’t always have them available.

I also like having the precise bible scriptures associated with each Mystery integrated into the process itself; it allows a more detailed focus by reading the actual living word of God without losing rhythm. While I personally know what the mysteries are about and what each decade story is, it adds a bit of opportunity to read in detail the bible passages of each mystery while not breaking stride with the prayer process. And, if there is ever a moment of distraction by events around me, I never lose my exact spot in praying the rosary.

I pray that this book enhances opportunity for you to pray the rosary on many occasions when otherwise you may not have, and I hope it enhances your prayers on a regular basis through deeper connection with the scriptures which are the living word of God.

The following updates were made based on user recommendations:

VERSION UPDATED JULY 22, 2012 - Changed the table of contents to show the correct day for Luminous Mysteries to be prayed 'Thursday', updated the Glory Be prayer to be included after the first 3 Hail Mary's at the opening of each Mystery, Updated the Glory Be to be worded more technically correct.

VERSION UPDATED DECEMBER 11, 2011 - Changed language of Apostle's Creed to match Catholic Church New Translation, fixed misspelled word "beech" to read "beseech", fixed missing bible verse for Mysteries "crowning with thorns" and "coronation of mary".

As an aid to saying the Rosary, this is about as good as you could get on the Kindle. The table of contents allows you to easily navigate directly to the correct Mystery for the day, and it contains relevant readings for each Mystery. And each prayer is split up into a page on its own, so you really do get the feel of moving from one prayer to the next as you say each decade, since you have to click the buttons on the side of the Kindle to physically move on.

However, it is let down slightly by a mistake in the text. In the contents page, it also lists the days of the week that each Mystery should be said (which would be very convenient for those just starting out with the Rosary). But, it gets the Luminous Mysteries wrong - it lists them as to be said on a Sunday, rather than on a Thursday. So I'm marking it down a bit because of this genuine error in the text. But mechanically, as a digital aid to saying the Rosary, it works very well, and is formatted perfectly for use on the Kindle.

This is a very ingenious and easy to follow guide to praying the Rosary. I enjoy using it, even when I have a few minutes, if work allows, to contemplate and pray the Rosary. There is no going back and forth through the pages to follow the mysteries. Great idea.

I have never known how to say the Rosary in full, other than the Our Father and the ten Hail Mary's. I didn't realise there was more to it until I joined a proper group and they left me behind struggling to keep up. This has solved the problem. You don't need to have a Rosary, just tap on the screen of the Kindle and each changing page acts like a bead of the Rosary, showing you the number of prayers said, and moving on to the next stage. There are also the readings from the Bible relevent to each Mystery, and advise on which days of the week/year they are normally said. You can be a complete novice, as it has the words of each and every prayer each time they come up, and even tells you when to make the sign of the cross. Great for a beginner and someone who like me has always been a Catholic but still needs prompting with some of the prayers. I love it.

Just a comment: it should be "Apostles' Creed" not "Apostle's Creed". It's the symbol of the apostolic faith, and as such is not attributed to one single apostle.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pray the rosary bead by bead 9 Jun. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a lovely wee book. Nice passage with each mystery, the title if each mystery on each page means you can see at a glance what mystery you are on. Imitating the rosary beads makes it easier to say rosary if you don't have beads.
