    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

    Catholic School Principal
    used the Stations of the Cross Slide Show during Lent
    Christine,

    Since we do not have a church yet (our school actually shares our gym with the parish), we do Stations twice during Lent. Of course, students are encouraged to attend Stations in the evening at their own parishes. Since we don't have church, we do not have Stations on the walls and we cannot have the students walk from station to station.

    So, projecting the images seems to work best for us.

    We split our student body into two separate groups (we have a student population of approximately 600). We have K-4 come together and 5-8 come together.

    We do have a built in screen to project on to. Teachers took turns reading the text from the book. I distributed the bookmarks to the students.

    Faculty members thought the pictures were very appropriate and beautifully illustrated. I also received many comments on including the information on contemporary saints. I think the students liked that part also.
