    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
