Title: Best commentary on the Mysteries of the Rosary
Post by: Stefano on January 11, 2019, 08:52:41 AM
I recently got "The Agony of Jesus" by St. Padre Pio, which is some of the best commentary that I have yet encountered on Our Lord's agony in the garden. It has really helped elucidate the nuances of the mystery and drastically improved my meditations on it. Unfortunately, there do no seem to exist in print commentary from him on the other mysteries.

Would anyone have any recommendations for a single text with excellent commentary on all 15 mysteries?

Thank you in advance!

I was just going to make a thread asking for this! Thank you. I look forward to what everyone says and appreciate the recommendation for St. Padre Pio's book.

In The World's First Love by Ven. Fulton Sheen, there's a chapter near the end of the book with little reflections on each mystery of the Rosary.

Thank you for your recommendation. How much detail is gone into in said chapter?

There's about a paragraph per mystery, and the focus is which virtues are portrayed in a given mystery and how we can live that out.
