The books in The Illuminated Rosary series illuminate the mysteries of the rosary in sixty works of sacred art—one for each bead—to help readers pray the rosary more meditatively:

  • Each two-page spread includes a work of art on one page, and the words of the appropriate prayer on the opposite page.
  • A string of “beads” at the bottom of the text marks progress through each decade.
  • Each decade opens with a beautiful Scripture-based introduction to one of the mysteries as well as suggested prayer intentions.

Perfect for kids

The Illuminated Rosary is perfect for children just learning to pray the rosary. Younger children can turn the page after each Our Father and Hail Mary, and older children can use the text on each page to help them lead the rosary and memorize the prayers.

What people are saying about The Illuminated Rosary series:

It’s just ingenious and so simple! The most beautiful book, in which every page corresponds to one bead of the Rosary and showcases one work of sacred art upon which to meditate! It’s the perfect First Communion gift. . . . (read full review)

—Leila Miller, Little Catholic Bubble

This book is absolutely beautiful! My kids love being able to keep up with the beads at the bottom and I love being able to meditate on the mysteries using the artwork to keep me focused. Please keep the wonderful books coming!

—Emily Nielsen

We used this book to say our rosary on the day of the March For Life, and the kids sat quiet and engrossed by the lovely artwork, a different painting for each bead of each mystery. Highly recommended.

I just bought the Joyful Mysteries, my boys (5 & 6yrs) and I have been using it for the past 3 nights at bedtime! In fact, I let them stay up a bit later than usual last night & told them no books, straight to bed! But they insisted we had to see our “Mary Book”, so I caved! I love that the pictures really get them to understand each Mystery….

The Joyful Mysteries came Saturday, and we were just blown away by it. Absolutely beautiful. The artwork is stunning, the whole presentation of the mysteries, how to pray the Rosary, the listing of the artwork at the end, all are done with such excellence.
