  1. This is a beautiful collection of reflections. As I work my way through them, I am amazed at what a difference they make in my contemplations while praying the Rosary. Your pictures and your words really help to keep my attention focused on the mystery at hand and its meaning in my life. Molte Grazie!

  2. Fr. Stephen thank-you!! I am no sufferer any more or less than anyone else, but I have seen a bit in my life, so often I am affraid I have lost the sense of feeling and tears for what The Lord did for people like me. I cried such tears as I read your Sorrowful Mysteries reflections. I can only pray that God will help strengthen me to live as your reflections suggest...Again thank-you!!
