Inspiration and Meditation through Art and Literature Pope Benedict XV's Encyclical on Dante "IN PRAECLARA SUMMORUM" (April 30, 1921) stated that "Among the many celebrated geniuses of whom the Catholic faith can boast who have left undying fruits in literature ... highest stands the name of Dante Alighieri..." [IPS, 1] Three pictures from The Dore Illustrations for Dante's Divine Comedy are included for each of the Seven Visits. Pope Benedict XV further said that while the Divine Comedy "uses various symbolic images and records the lives of mortals on earth, it has for its true aim the glorification of the justice and providence of God who rules the world through time and all eternity and punishes and rewards the actions of individuals and human society." [IPS, 4]

The Suffering Servant's Courage
A Scriptural Rosary

On the Importance of Being the Suffering Servant

The Suffering Servant is a figure described in the Book of the Prophet Isaiah. Indeed, its direct and indirect use by Our Lord Jesus Christ and its vast role in the life of the Church had led the Fathers to refer to this book as the “Fifth Gospel.”

Christine Haapala is the author of over 13 Scriptural prayer books. She founded Suffering Servant Scriptorium in the Jubilee year – 2000. The Suffering Servant’s Courage was one of her first prayer book. This new pocket-size format means you can carry the book in your back pocket, briefcase, or purse, thus having it available anytime for prayer.

This prayer book integrates poignant Sacred Scripture verses about courage and strength, the prayers of the mysteries of the Most Holy Rosary, and the inspired artistic genius of the 19th century Catholic illustrator, Gustave Dore. All 20 Rosary mysteries are included.

These Bible stories show how much Jesus suffered for you and me. Since Jesus’ birth, the Blessed Virgin Mary bore the prophetic message that her heart would be “pierced by a sword.” She was nearly alone at the foot of the cross. Mary’s heart was surely pierced, when she saw her son’s heart, pierced by a lance.

"I have heard many Catholics say that they found the Rosary monotonous. ... Christine Haapala’s Scriptural Rosary, with illustrations by Gustave Dore, is anything but boring. It helps one to pray the Rosary while really meditating…
from Introduction

To love as the Suffering Servant means to follow the path of self-sacrifice – a way that would be impossible without the courage of the Suffering Servant.

    How did this unique Rosary come about?
    In December, 1997, Christine Haapala heard the Gospel selection "[Herod] ordered the massacre of all the boys in Bethlehem and its vicinity two years old and under ..." Mt 2:16 Since January would mark the 25th anniversary of Roe vs Wade, she wrote this Scriptural Rosary to promote God's message of life and to ask forgiveness for the national scourge - the sins of abortion. By collaborating with Nancy Scimone, award-winning composer and soprano, the 1st Edition of the Sanctity of Life Scriptural Rosary was released in January, 2000, under the Saint Gabriel Media label. Pope John Paul II in his Apostolic Letter Rosarium Virginis Mariae recommended an additional set of mysteries be prayed during the Most Holy Rosary. The Luminous Mysteries "bring out the Christological depth of the Rosary." In this newest release, we again collaborate with Nancy Scimone and she not only composed new melodies for these Mysteries of Light, she also leads us in praying them.

    What are Rosary Messages of Life?
    The Joyful Mysteries focus on life and how "In [God's] hand is the soul of every living thing" Job 12:10 and "the fruit of the womb [is] a reward" Ps 127:3

    The Luminous Mysteries focus on living the Catholic Sacramental Life - we reflect on the sacraments of Holy Eucharist and Holy Orders during the Fifth Luminous Mystery - Do this in memory of me." Lk 22:19 and "You are a priest forever." Heb 7:17

    The Sorrowful Mysteries give us the strength and courage to accept God's will in suffering and death, when we say like Christ did in the Garden of Gethsemane - "still, not my will but yours be done" Lk 22:42

    The Glorious Mysteries allow us to hope in God's promise of eternal life - "Remain faithful until death, and I will give you the crown of life." Rv 2:10
