|Why the Scriptural Rosary?
In 1995 I met a group of people praying the scriptural
rosary in our church. They asked me to join them and
they gave me a scriptural rosary book. I loved the
scriptural rosary and the book they gave me.
At this time I was undergoing chemotherapy for cancer
and it was great to meet such a supportive group of
people to pray the rosary with me. We met every
Thursday to pray the scriptural rosary then we would
spend about 30 minutes afterward socializing over
coffee and donuts. This continued for all 4 months of
my treatment and quite a while after the treatment was
completed. It was awesome. And yes! I have been
cancer free since 1995 so praise God for that!
In 2007, I was a parishioner at Divine Redeemer
Catholic Church. The priest there met me in the parking
lot one day before an evening mass on Tuesday. He
asked me to meet him in the back of the church where
he then told me that he wanted me to be an altar server
at today's mass. Later, he asked me to be a lector at
another daily mass. I got into the habit of attending
mass every Tuesday and Thursday evening and usually
helped out as a lector or altar server. The rosary was
prayed before every daily mass and was very often led by
a woman named Melissa. It was not a scriptural rosary
but when Melissa led us, I really felt moved and my
devotion to the rosary really increased.
Well, in 2008, I wanted to pray a scriptural rosary but I
could not find my book so I did a search for scriptural
rosary on line. I was very disappointed. I found very few
and none of them compared to my missing book. So... I
got to work building my own website with the hope that
others would come to experience the joy and the peace
that I felt whenever I prayed one. I am so glad that you
found this site and I sincerely hope that you have come
to love the scriptural rosary with the many blessings and
benefits that come when you pray it regularly.
Of course, when I decided to record the audio scriptural
rosary I asked Melissa if she would record them for me
too. She agreed. If you haven't prayed an audio rosary
with Melissa I strongly encourage it. You will not be
You can find the audio rosaries on the home page.
Thanks again for visiting the site. I hope you will come
back often and pray. If you do, please include the site
and its intentions in your prayers.
Thanks and God Bless,
P.S. When I created this site I was a mortgage broker.
With the housing crisis in 2008, I left the mortgage
industry after 10 years and volunteered with Catholic
Volunteers in Florida. I worked as a case worker with
homeless veterans at an organization called WIN/Vet.
(When In Need/Veterans).
After a year of volunteer service I was asked to stay on as
the WIN/Vet Program Director. We provided
transitional housing to homeless veterans and worked
closely with the VA Hospital in Viera, FL to help these
veterans improve their physical and mental health, if
necessary, while also helping them to obtain a
permanent income and permanent housing. I did this
for 5 years and enjoyed it very, very much.
Now I am back in the mortgage business with First
Federal Bank. It's a nationwide lender with great rates
and a variety of programs and I would love to help
anyone that is considering refinancing or buying a home.
