The Method

Hands Forward ShadowThe Embodied Rosary is a blend of tradition and innovation.  Praying each of the prayers with a single contemplative, scriptural gesture offers a physical way to connect with and stay focused on the mysteries.

Adults as well as children are drawn into the mysteries in a powerful way.  With the Embodied Rosary, conferences, rallies, schools, families, and religious education classes have a tool to enliven this beloved prayer.

Learn this method by following along with the videos listed on the menu bar.  The full Rosaries are under Embodied Rosaries, or try a decade from the Daily Decades.

You can also download copies of the scripts and/or purchase the Embodied Rosary book.

“Compelling and family-friendly, the Embodied Rosary broadens our prayer experience.  While teaching us to pray the Rosary with gestures, reflections, and biblical passages, Tom and Geralyn Sparough invite us to contemplate the mysteries of Christ in a new way.”

–Rev. Robert J. Hater
Author of Your [Imperfect] Holy Family, and Common Sense Catechesis

”Brilliant!  For a people called to incarnation, this simple and embodied way of praying the Rosary truly helps us to walk with Jesus – and his Mother – in body, mind and spirit.  Let us pray!”
