Life of Jesus Paintings and Meditations on the Rosary by M. BillingsleyThis exquisitely beautiful book by Mary Billingsley presents the rosary for children, but I might add for children of all ages. When I first saw a few of the paintings, I wondered if it was wise to portray Christ, Our Lady, and the other participants in the drama of the rosary as puppet or manikin figures. But the idea very much grew on me and, as I now see the final outcome of Mary s work, I m completely captivated. This is a rosary book for young and old.
. The artwork alternately recalls altars, shrines, or marionette stages, and focuses on such events as the Nativity, the Marriage at Cana, and the Crucifixion. Billingsley's text and art create a surprising and enlightening modern juxtaposition to this very traditional practice. CBA Retailers + Resources
Billingsley has divided this book according to the four 'Mysteries
's life 'Joyful, ' 'Luminous, ' 'Sorrowful, '
-hand facing page shows a full-color illustration of the Mystery. Billingsley's unusual technique is what stands out; she has created 'shrines
's toys arranged in a vignette, and then reproduced them in gouache. The overall effect is child-friendly but also intensely emotionally evocative. Other rosary guides for children are useful and come in more 'pew friendly'
; this book adds elements that enhance the meditative and contemplative demands of the rosary devotion.
