Mr. Edward's "practical" version of the Rosary in offensive.

He replaces the meditations on Our Lord's sacred mysteries of His life, death and resurrection with meditating on the mundane desires of praying person.

The Rosary prayers are sacred. But praying the Rosary prayers is only 1/2 of the whole. Just praying the prayers without meditating on the mysteries is like a body without a soul.

Please do not make the disrespectful mistake of such misuse of the Rosary.

His "practical" version changes the order of each decade of prayers. Why monkey with an ancient religious sacramental??

Finally, with all due respect to Mr. Edward, there are many details he has included that belie his very real ignorance of the history and process of praying the Rosary.

This book is pure trash.
