A wonderful and fresh approach to learning the Rosary! A perfect companion to any religious education program. This workbook invites children to participate in a new and interactive way in this beautiful prayer.
How necessary it is to teach the Rosary to young Catholics and establish them in a habit of daily prayer to carry them through their learning years. May they bring their families with them on this journey!

Prayers of Blessing
With appreciation, prayer, and blessing.
– Pope Francis, August 2017
Fr. Francis Martin, S.T.L., S.S.D., Chaplain of Mother of God Community in Gaithersburg, MD and founder of The Word Proclaimed Institute (RIP 2017) has reviewed and Learn the Rosary® Prayer Booklet and associated materials and offers the following blessing.
These Learn the Rosary® materials are the work of a real teacher, brought about to glorify your name and to bring people closer to you. Bless these Learn the Rosary materials; bless those who use them and teach them to love You! Open the hearts of the children who pray the Rosary to the love Mary has for each one of them. Give them ears to hear the invitation to love and spend time with Jesus. I pray that all your ideas and ambitions for learning the Rosary this way be realized and that you help those who work on further developing and promoting these materials. Amen.
– Fr. Francis Martin
