The Rosary in Space and Time

Front Cover
Gracewing Publishing, 2004 - Religion - 140 pages
Ruth Rees emphasizes the biblical sources of this beautiful form of contemplative prayer which focuses on the salvation history of Jesus Christ and his mother Mary. She makes profound theological issues accessible to readers of all ages and backgrounds; more - the book leaves the reader with a rare sense of reassurance and tranquillity. It is like a garden, quiet, scented, timeless, hidden among the clamour of the city. A source of joy in a climate of increasing chaos. Here is an excellent pastoral resource that is intelligent and evocative for those who pray or want to pray. Ruth Rees has worked in theatre, radio, international public relations and journalism in four countries. Received into the Catholic Church, her conversion deepened her love and gratitude for her Jewish background. She writes widely for the Catholic media.
