The Holy Rosary pages have now been officially finished and made available to the public.

If you have had difficulties meditating on the mysteries of the Holy Rosary in the past, these pages will help through the quotations of the saints to inspire meditation.

While the pages are finished in the sense that they are now sufficiently prepared for the public, there is a need for more quotations of the saints on the various mysteries, and any suggestions are welcome, please PM or email them or suggest them in the thread in the Technical Support forum.

Also please report any technical difficulties during this first launch.

Also further scriptural quotations should be added in the future.

Samples from the meditations:

'Now he leans his weight upon his hands, now upon his feet; but on what part soever he leans, the anguish increases He turns his afflicted head, now on one side, now on the other: if he lets it fall towards his breast, the hands, by the additional weight, are rent the more; if he lowers it towards his shoulders, the shoulders are pierced with the thorns; if he leans it back upon the cross, the thorns enter the more deeply into the head.'

St. Alphonsus Maria de Liguori

And it came to pass, that after three days they found him in the temple, sitting in the midst of the doctors, hearing them and asking them questions. [Lk 2.46] Let us see what is meant by the three days, the temple, Jesus's sitting, the doctors, and his hearing and asking questions.

The three days represent understanding one's own wickedness, compassion for one's brother's need, and consideration and admiration of the divine pity. . .

St. Anthony of Padua

'The bride saw the Queen of Heaven, the Mother of God, wearing a priceless and inestimable crown on her head, with her wonderfully beautiful hair hanging down over her shoulders, a golden tunic gleaming indescribably bright, and a mantle of the color of azure or of a calm sky. While the bride was all full of wonder at this lovely vision and in her wonderment was standing there as if caught up in helpless amazement within herself, just then. Blessed John the Baptist appeared to her and said: "Pay close attention to what all this signifies.

The crown signifies that she is the Queen and Lady and Mother of the King of angels. Her hair hanging down signifies that she is a pure and immaculate virgin; the sky-colored mantle that she was dead to temporal things. The golden tunic signifies that she was ardent and burning with the love of God both inwardly and outwardly."'

St. Bridget of Sweden
