5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect book for the Centenary of Fatima!
By Duncan Euclid Lemonparty on February 14, 2017
I have been collecting Rosary meditation books for years, and I have particularly sought those which have a Scriptural meditation for each Angelic Salutation. This book is easily among the best of the latter kind, both because of its presentation and content. The selection of Scriptural passages is ingenious and betrays a profound knowledge of of Old Testament typology. The chosen passages do not merely repeat the histories found in the sacred Gospels, but offer passages from other Canonical books that illustrate the Mysteries in a fresh and theologically sound way. The Scriptural texts and the Rosary prayers are given in Latin and English in a very nice format that is reminiscent of the illustrated prayer-books of a now-distant age. The meditations which precede the Mystery decades only enrich the Scriptural meditations by orienting the thoughts and affections of the supplicant in a cohesive theological or moral context that enables one to not merely "pray," but to live the Holy Rosary.
Without any hesitation, I can recommend this book to anyone who loves the Mother of God, the Blessed Virgin Mary, and her Holy Rosary. With the centenary of the apparitions of Our Lady of the Rosary at Fatima now upon us, this book is a perfect way to comply with the message and mandate which Our Lady vouchsafed the world by praying the Holy Rosary in such wise so as to attain to the heights of Christian perfection and contemplation.

Beautiful, inspiring and dimensions are perfect for holding in one hand and holding the rosary in the other. I ordered one for our parish priest.
5.0 out of 5 stars By Pat on December 27, 2016 Enter into the depths of the Rosary!
Behold Thy Mother is a true gift to the Church! Everything about it proclaims the profound beauty and depth of the Holy Rosary. Behold Thy Mother provides a traditional work of sacred art, a spiritual reflection by a Church Doctor, and a set of 10 scripture passages for each mystery of the Rosary. In addition, each prayer and scripture passage includes a parallel Latin text that serve to connect the reader to centuries of past tradition, through which this devotion has been handed down to the faithful today. There are plenty of devotional books on the Rosary in print, but none present the Rosary in such a beautiful and elegant manner. It truly inspires you to pray the Rosary and is a wonderful aid in one's journey of entering more deeply into the mysteries of Our Lord's and Our Lady's lives. It is also a great evangelization tool; anyone interested in a promoting Catholic culture should own this and share it with others. The book is equally useful for those just learning to pray the Rosary and for those who have been praying it for their entire lives!
