The booklet includes:

  • Insightful meditations for each mystery
  • Meditations for all decades: Joyful, Luminous, Sorrowful, and Glorious
  • Scripture passages which can inform and inspire the devotion
  • Instructions on how to pray the Rosary and lead it publicly
  • Petitions that help to focus upon the intercession of Mary and the presence of Christ to those in sorrow

Praise

"Very comforting."

"Beth Mahoney has put together a very comforting booklet of Rosary services to be used by pastoral ministers, families and friends when someone dies. There are insightful meditations for each mystery, scripture passages which can inform and inspire the devotion, instructions on how to pray the Rosary and lead it publicly, and petitions which help to focus upon the intercession of Mary and the presence of Christ to those who are sorrowing. Servant of God Father Patrick Peyton, founder of Holy Cross Family Ministries, was my classmate and friend. His life’s work encouraged families to gather in prayer, especially in times of crisis or loss. He would be happy to see Grant Us Peace made available as a consoling prayer resource for families and friends in the hours, days, and weeks following the death of a loved one. May it be well used."
