“Fr. Edward Looney was a student of mine at Mundelein Seminary. I have long recognized his intelligence, his prayerfulness, and his great love for the Mother of God. All of these qualities are on abundant display in this moving devotional, which can only help to deepen your spiritual life and your relationship to Mary.”
–Bishop Robert Barron, Auxiliary Bishop of Los Angeles, CA
“In A Rosary Litany: Renewing a Pious Custom Fr. Looney has done the Church a great service by retrieving an ancient and honorable method for praying the rosary in a more meditative manner. For centuries the rosary has been referred to as a “mini-catechism” and a “summary of the Gospel” and this little devotional book is a treasure that will greatly aid us in contemplating the sacred mysteries in a more profound way!”
–Fr. Donald Calloway, MIC, STL
Author – Rosary Gems: Daily Wisdom on the Holy Rosary
“What a beautiful little devotional! This book will help you to grow closer to Our Lord and our Lady, through this method of the rosary. Read this book and use it in your daily prayer and discover the power and love of our Blessed Mother! I highly recommend it!”
–Fr. Larry Richards, The Reason for Our Hope Foundation
“I’m a big fan of the Rosary and Rosary books that can help the mysteries and lives of Jesus and Mary come to life. Don’t be fooled by the brevity of Fr. Looney’s book. The custom of inserting a litany into the natural flow of the prayers greatly enhances our recitation and meditation–honing our faith to contemplate the richness of God’s truth and action in salvation history. These short ‘prayer-extensions’ will give us reasons to soar to the heights and delights of praise as we engage this ancient Gospel practice.”
–Sr. Helena Burns, FSP, Popular Movie Reviewer and Blogger
¨THE SCHOOL OF MARY!¨ This was Saint John Paul II’s simple yet profound description of the Holy Rosary. In the same spirit Fr. Edward Looney offers us this devotional book that can help us to “pray the Gospel,” guided by our Holy Mother. Through A Rosary Litany, Father Looney revives a way of praying the Rosary that we have forgotten in America, that highlights the Scriptures to come to know Jesus with Mary. This is a fine and practical help for us to pray more deeply.
—Rev. James H. Phalan, CSC, Latin American Regional Coordinator, The Family Rosary
“In this age of spiritual crisis, people are in need of encountering Jesus Christ. The rosary is a timeless way of achieving such an encounter. Reflection on the mysteries of the rosary is the very soul of praying this simple but profound and powerful prayer. Through Fr. Edward Looney’s new book A Rosary Litany, the mysteries of the rosary come alive and a personal relationship with Christ springs forth. The story of redemption through Jesus Christ is not relegated just to a historical moment in the past, but continues to be applied in our daily life. A Rosary Litany provides nourishment to ensure this in the present moment.”
–Dick Boldin, Cofounder and Director of the Rosary Evangelization Apostolate
Whether you’re a rosary pro or a reluctant pray-er, A Rosary Litany will be an indispensable guide for helping you grow closer to Jesus through Mary.
