Contemplating On The Wounds Of The Savior

Pondering sacred Scripture was the way the early monks, the desert fathers and mothers, and in fact the people of the bible, prayed. And the monks developed a traditional method for doing that, the ingredients of which we find rehearsed in John of the Cross when he writes: "Seek in reading and you will find in meditation; knock in prayer and it will be opened to you in contemplation" (Sayings, #158).

    This is absolutely beautiful! I pray the rosary daily and four rosaries on Friday. I will use this with my tuesday, Friday, and Sunday Rosaries. Thank You!

  2. Thank you for those kind words, Sandi. A little over a year ago I began praying this Rosary. My inspiration came from:

    "With joy-filled devotion Francis dwelt in the heavenly mansions and in complete self-emptying he remained for long periods hidden, as it were, in the wounds of the Savior. He therefore sought out solitary places where he could cast his soul entirely upon God."
