The Devotion of the Holy Rosary and the Five Scapulars

The Holy Rosary is a gift from the Blessed Virgin Mary, as are her powerful scapulars. This is the theme Fr. Michael Muller stresses throughout these two-hundred and seventy-five pages of grateful acclamation to a devotion upon which the salvation of great multitudes of sinners rests.

The heartfelt recitation of the rosary and meditation on the mysteries thereof is the best 'thank you' we can give to Mary for her unfathomable mercies.

The scholarly author expounds upon every aspect of this devotion now over eight-hundred years old. He relates it wonderfully to the New Testament as well as to the Old. Every single page of the pious work is replete with holy quotations or exciting analogies, inspiring anecdotes or miracles.

And, too, there are enough actual accounts of graces spurned, or false and superstitious devotion to make us fearful.

This is a book that the faithful will love so much that they will feel compelled to share their gift with wayward friends and relatives.
