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]

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.

Priest Prophet King
Three Scriptural Rosaries [$20.00]

by Christine Haapala
This is Christine Haapala's twelfth Scriptural prayer book.

Iconography from the Museum of Russian Icons, Clinton, MA

128 pages, full color, 6" by 9" prayer book.

From the Author's Note: In 2017, the 100th anniversary of the apparition of Our Lady at Fatima, I finished this set of three Scriptural Rosaries. In a small way, this prayer book responds to the 100-year old message of Our Blessed Mother, "to pray the rosary for the conversion of Russia." ...

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

    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.
