Currently, the Canadian dollar sits at about $0.78 US. That means we are paying almost 25% more for items priced in US dollars. Just two short months ago, our currency was very close to being equal.
Wouldn't you know, I just found something I wish I had come across when our Loonie was actually worth something - a gem of a little booklet titled The Rosary Album but it's priced in US currency, so it'll have to wait. As always, when I come across a treasure like this, I will be ordering more than one, and giving several copies away to my readers who want to be able to avoid distractions while praying the rosary.
A VISUAL AND SCRIPTURAL MEDITATION ON THE ROSARY.
A top favorite of young children and adults! Booklet includes over 200 original black and white illustrations (one for each bead!) by the late Mr. Michael Buccino. The artist began these drawings to help his children meditate more easily on the Rosary. "I came up with the idea that if they had a book with pictures it might keep their minds on meditating while they were praying and would be better able to concentrate on the Rosary. So I got started working on the Rosary Album, which took me 18 years to put together. The book has brought the rosary to life."
There is a picture and scripture verse for each bead. The Litany of Our Lady (with illustrations) is also woven into each mystery. For all ages.
