The Luminous Mysteries: Biblical Reflections on the Life of Christ

Front Cover
Emmaus Road Publishing, 2005 - 134 pages
Pope John Paul II has called the Rosary "a true doorway to the depths of the Heart of Christ, ocean of joy and light, of suffering and glory." Author Tim Gray celebrates this life-changing truth as he uncovers the deep scriptural roots of the five Luminous Mysteries'the Baptism in the Jordan, the Wedding of Cana, the Proclamation of the Kingdom, the Transfiguration, and the Institution of the Eucharist. In his foreword to The Luminous Mysteries, Archbishop Raymond L. Burke of St. Louis writes: "Tim Gray is an outstanding teacher of the Catholic faith, as he has demonstrated by his other writings and his presentations given to a variety of audiences. His love of Christ is transparent in his writing and inspires the reader to love Christ more fully and ardently. The Luminous Mysteries: Biblical Reflections on the Life of Christ is a most worthy tool for growth in the knowledge of Christ and growth in Christ's likeness." This book also includes five meditations from the Church Fathers on the Luminous events!
