Whether readers are praying the rosary for the first time or are already praying the rosary daily, The Rosary Prayer by Prayer by Mary K. Doyle is an invaluable resource and aid to promoting a deeper prayer experience. It is a treasure chest of information about the history and benefits of the rosary, suggestions for meditation on the mysteries, exquisite artwork, and references.
This book is also an easy way to pray the rosary. Simply follow along page-by-page, prayer-by-prayer. On the left side of the page, you will find the prayer to pray. On the right side there is a diagram clearly indicating the corresponding bead on the actual rosary. Additionally, a passage from Scripture, reflection, and illustration accompany every one of the twenty mysteries.

Mary's personal relationship with Our Lady has been life-long.

Most of all Mary enjoys time with her family. She is married, has three adult children, a daughter-in-law, and four adult step-children as well as a large, supportive extended family. She accompanies her husband, magician Marshall Brodien, at magic conventions and special appearances where from time-to-time she assists him with his magic illusions on stage as a "box jumper."
