Each two-page spread includes a work of art on one page, and the words of the appropriate prayer on the opposite page; a row of beads at the bottom of the page helps track progress through each decade. Each decade of the rosary opens with a beautiful Scripture-based introduction to one of the sorrowful mysteries (the Agony in the Garden, the Scourging at the Pillar, the Crowning with Thorns, the Carrying of the Cross, and the Crucifixion) as well as suggested prayer intentions.The rhythm of The Sorrowful Mysteries makes it perfect for kids just learning to pray the rosary. Younger children can be taught to turn the page after each Our Father and Hail Mary, and older children can use the text on each page to help them lead the family rosary and memorize the prayers. Adults can use The Sorrowful Mysteries to pray the rosary more slowly and meditatively.
