Fr Lawrence Lew’s photographs of sacred art inspire his contemplations of each Mystery of the Rosary. Beginning with a foreword by the Master of the Order, Fr Gerard Francisco Timoner III, O.P., the words and images in this book make the Mysteries we contemplate vivid and real, helping all of us – those who pray the Rosary faithfully and those who struggle with the devotion – to pray with deeper reverence and greater understanding.
Fr Lawrence Lew, OP is a Dominican friar, the Promoter General of the Rosary for the Order of Preachers, and, until 2023, the rector of the Rosary Shrine at Haverstock Hill, London. He is also a well-known photographer.
“This informative and beautifully illustrated book is a wonderful introduction to the Rosary prayer, and even more importantly, an irresistible invitation to pray it regularly.” – Bishop Robert Barron
"What a truly delightful book on the Holy Rosary of Our Lady! The use of illustrations to pray the Rosary is a tried and true aid in praying the Rosary more attentively and 'Mysteries Made Visible' will be a great blessing to all who use it." – Fr Donald Calloway MIC, Author of 'Champions of the Rosary'
"The Rosary is a crossroads of prayer, confession of the central mysteries of the Catholic faith, and contemplation of saving truths. It can be said in a train station or prayed quietly in a church. Fr. Lew leads us through a beautiful, thoughtful and clear consideration of this most central devotion of the Church. This is a work that will help us pray and a book to give others to invite them to pray." – Fr Thomas Joseph White OP, Rector Magnificus of the Angelicum (Rome)
"Mysteries Made Visible by Fr Lawrence Lew OP is a feast for the heart, the mind, and the eyes. In words inspiringly phrased and images beautifully captured he draws us anew into the ancient prayer of the Rosary. This is a book to ponder and linger over. As we pray with tangible beads Fr Lawrence helps us enter the eternal mysteries of salvation.’ –The Most Reverend John Wilson, Archbishop of Southwark
"Mysteries Made Visible is destined to become the 'go to' book for members of the Confraternity of the Most Holy Rosary. By both word and imagery, the Promoter General has fashioned a work that educates and inspires souls to a deeper longing for the Author of all through the lens of the Queen of Heaven." –Dennis Girard, Director, Marian Devotional Movement
