The Warrior’s Rosary: Meditations For Spiritual Combat
By Johnnette S. Benkovic and Thomas K. Sullivan
In a day and age when war is raged against all that is good, holy, true, and beautiful from the existence of God to the dignity of the human person made in His image and likeness (Cf., Genesis 1:26-27) things like secular humanism, relativism, and a veritable culture of death seem to have the upper hand. But for the believing Christian, Heaven orchestrates its own army to combat this spiritual darkness: the Blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of God, and her faithful sons and daughters on earth whom she leads to an ever closer union with her Divine Son through the biblical prayer known as the Rosary.
In this booklet, The Warrior’s Rosary: Meditations for Spiritual Combat, Johnnette S. Benkovic and Thomas K. Sullivan provide concise, faith-filled meditations on the Joyful, Luminous, Sorrowful, and Glorious Mysteries of the Rosary. Drawn from Benkovic and Sullivan’s earlier book, The Rosary: Your Weapon for Spiritual Warfare, each meditation identifies a virtue or combination of virtues to grow in while focusing on the particular mystery being prayed. For those who may not be familiar with this preeminent devotion of the Church and its various prayers, the booklet also includes instruction on how to pray the Rosary; it also lists the Fifteen Promises given to those who pray and promote the Rosary as revealed by our Blessed Mother to St. Dominic. This meditation booklet is a must for every serious Christian’s devotional treasure chest.
