River of Wisdom: A Retreat Guide on the Rosary

Not sure how to use this retreat guide?

If there existed a deep, rushing river whose waters gave eternal wisdom to anyone who drank them, wouldn’t you want to seek it out?

Well, such a river does exist: It’s called the Rosary, and it’s within arms’ reach of anyone.  But to drink of its waters, we have to discover its secrets: its connection to the Mother of God, and her connection to Christ.

This month’s Retreat Guide, River of Wisdom: A Retreat Guide on the Rosary, offers just such a discovery.

  • In the first meditation, we will look at the essence of Marian devotion, and one fundamental form of that devotion.
  • In the second meditation, we will look at two other basic forms of Marian devotion.
  • And in the conference, we will talk about the practical activities – including praying the Rosary – that can help us develop and benefit from this devotion in our daily lives.

  1. I would like to use this video for a group reflection. However, at a certain point, it stops and re-loads at an unacceptable rate. It destroys the flow of the presentation.

    Is there a way to download the retreat to my hard drive so it would play uninterruptedly?

    1. Yes, you can download any of the retreat guide videos. At the bottom right hand corner of each video is a sharing menu. You may select “download” to save the video to your computer for off-line viewing. You will need to save each of the videos separately. I hope that helps.

      God bless.

  2. As we pray the Holy Rosary we must ask for the Grace that the images we have of our Lady and Merciful Mother The Blessed Virgin Mary find room in our heart with the required purity and kindness. I use the scapulary and have an Italian painting of The Blessed Virgin of Mount Carmelo at home. Peace.

  3. Thank you Father John,
    A River of Wisdom about Our Lady and the Rosary, was what I needed today.
    I find your retreats enlightening and the words I need at various times in my life.
    God bless you and keep them coming.
