Saint Luke Productions has created a new audio meditation to help those suffering during the pandemic. The Hope and Trust Rosary CD and download was released on October 7, 2020, the Feast of Our Lady of the Rosary.
Patti Defilippis, who wrote the reflections for this Rosary, was inspired to produce it for all those affected by the months of pandemic lockdown and political turmoil.
“If you’re like me,” she shares, “when you pray you don’t always know how to articulate the fear and anxiety that is gripping you. I figured if I could express, honestly and prayerfully, my deepest fears and weaknesses, they’d resonate with a lot of people.”
As the mother of seven children, Defilippis is intimately aware of the great need for spiritual encouragement for today’s families. “So many of us feel confused, scared, and maybe a little depressed by our current situation. When we bring our fears out of the shadows and into the light, they lose the power they have over us.”
Sample reflection: The Scourging at the Pillar “By his stripes we were healed.” (Is 53:5)
Jesus, the suffering of our world overwhelms me. Give me the courage to perform acts of charity, but also the trust that prayer can transform lives. Lord, may I see wounded humanity through Your eyes, and may the stripes of Your scourging heal our wounds. Give us all hope!
All four Mysteries are on the 2-disc CD set and the MP3 download, with short Bible passages and reflections tailored for each. The cover art for the Hope and Trust Rosary is a new icon of Our Lady of Hope, by Seattle artist Deborah Anderson. All are exclusively available at St. Luke Productions.
The Hope and Trust Rosary is the latest in Saint Luke Productions’ series of audio meditations, many of which are broadcast daily throughout the English-speaking world.
