Scripture Rosary
article posted 22 Nov 2013
The Rosary Group at St James the Great, Haydock has evolved a form of the Rosary in which the traditional repetition of the "Hail Mary" prayer is interspersed with appropriate verses from the Bible as an aid to meditation. Many of us have not been familiar with the Rosary from childhood, so this form was designed to help us focus on the devotional themes developed in each of the traditoinal "Mysteries".

Download the Scripture Rosary
article posted 22 Nov 2013

If you'd like to use the Scripture Rosary developed at St James the Great, Haydock, you are very welcome to download one or more of the Mysteries by clicking one of the links below.

The first set are formatted for reading on a computer screen - ideal for personal use or very small groups. For easy use, display them in full screen mode by typing <Ctrl> L when you can use the right and left arrows on the keyboard to turn the pages. To return to normal screen viewing when you have finished you can press <Ctrl> L again, or else press <Esc>.
Beware of printing , however! The screen versions are set on a non-standard size page, so probably will not print satisfactorily.

Below them are links to Print Versions, which are formatted for ease (and economy!!) of printing. They are set on A4 paper, and if you print both sides and fold in the middle, hopefully you'll end up with a sheet which is easy to use in context of a Rosary Group.

Screen Versions:
 The Joyful Mysteries 
 The Sorrowful Mysteries 
 The Glorious Mysteries 
 The Luminous Mysteries 


Print Versions:
 The Joyful Mysteries
