Christ has no body now on earth but yours, no hands but yours, no feet but yours; yours are the eyes through which to look at Christ's compassion to the world, yours are the feet with which he is to go about doing good, and yours are the hands with which he is to bless us now."

Welcome to Rosaries of Divine Union!

The Rosary has been a tool for prayer and meditation for almost as long as the Church has existed. The power and simplicity of the Rosary has appealed not only to Catholics, but to people of all faiths. Today there are many non-Catholics who have discovered the power and beauty of "praying by hand", and the need for a contemplative version of the Rosary is greater than ever before. Those who pray the Rosary are familiar with it's grace and power to work wonders in their lives and in the lives of those they pray for. Yet there are greater depths of experience and grace possible in the Rosary.  

Here, on these pages, are presented the Rosaries of Divine Union.  Many of these Rosaries contain familiar mysteries, yet have been written anew to take advantage of the seven-decade format. 

Most of the Rosaries are entirely new in their content and emphasis.

These Rosaries invite us into the depths of our being, into the core of our connection with God.  They ask us to discard the outer traps of our lives and to dive deeply into our heritage as Children of God, there to become open and receptive to hear the truest Gospel within our own souls.  As in the best tradition of contemplative practice these Rosaries offer us the opportunity to not only express our desires at the feet of the Divine, but to remain open to what God has to show us in our lives.

The writing of these Rosaries represented--and continue to represent--an "inspired" period for me, wherein I felt impelled to write; and when I did the words and ideas that poured out did so in an effortless and joyful manner.  I cannot, with any conscience, suggest that I "saw" or "heard" Our Lady in the writing of this work, yet her presence is always near in this work, and it is therefore dedicated to her.

Please feel free to read the introductory material.  The introduction explains why familiar and new mysteries are gathered for use by the seven-decade Rosary.  Please feel free to copy and use these Rosaries. Use them and give them to friends. I would be interested in your experiences and your feedback.
