You know that in an Apostolic Letter in 2002, Pope John Paul II added five Luminous Mysteries. Did you know that in that same Letter he also called for a new way of praying the Rosary?
St. John Paul II's new way of praying the Rosary was based on the teachings of St. Theresa of Avila and has become known as the Contemplative Rosary because it more perfectly unites vocal prayer and meditation, transforming the prayers of the Rosary into a contemplative meeting with God.
Did you know about these changes? Have you tried them?
In our new book, The Contemplative Rosary, we have not only incorporated the five new Luminous Mysteries, we have included as well the many other changes Pope John Paul made to the Rosary.
Here are his additions to the texts and prayers -- additions small and large -- that, as John Paul intended, unite the Rosary more closely to the official liturgical prayers of the Church as well as to Scripture.
Here are also scores of full-color images for your contemplation that anchor your attention in each Mystery and transform your Rosary from a hasty, habitual recitation into a profound speaking to God and a keen listening to Him.
Following the wise advice of St. Theresa of Avila and the new method proposed by St. John Paul, you'll find here for each mystery:

Gifts of the Spirit
Gifts of the Spirit was founded in 1983 by Gladys and Mary Dieringer. When Natalie Duffy heard it was set to close, in September of 2018, she knew that our city couldn’t lose this little gem and has been operating it ever since, with her 6 little boys in tow. As of the March 2020 Covid shelter in order, she has been operating the shop remotely. In November 2020, we made the decision to permanently close the storefront, to accommodate digital learning in conjunction with meeting our customer’s needs.
We are happy to offer shipping and pick up options, as well as delivery to close in Portland, OR areas.We do special orders!
Although our physical storefront has closed, we offer contactless pickup and browsing from my covered porch in the SE Portland Vicinity not far from i205 and SE Powell Blvd.
