Since «The Rosary for Episcopalians» was first compiled and printed, the requests for it have been constant. It has filled a need for a form of piety that is alive and well in the Church. It has been many years since the author was asked by the Grace Cathedral Bookstore in San Francisco to "write something" about the Rosary, as they had nothing by an Episcopalian on the subject. As a result, this little book came into being. With the Apostolic Letter of Pope John Paul II, Rosarium Virginis Mariae, and the creation of the set of "Mysteries of Light," the need to update this work became obvious. It is hoped the insertion of the Luminous Mysteries has been seamless enough not to be distracting." The change of the title of the work to "The Rosary for Episcopalians/Anglicans" is owing to the request of many who wrote from outside the United States who are members of the worldwide Anglican Communion. Many Anglicans, they pointed out, don't know what an Episcopalian is, since we in the United States are the only ones using the term, and therefore didn't know that the pamphlet was for them. It is hoped this small volume will be of help to those who read it and that they may take up the Rosary and use it when they care to, and make it a part of their spiritual life. Our prayer for all of those who read this is that the Rosary, as a form of prayer, may strengthen you, and lead you into the silence of God's Presence, where you may daily increase in his love and in service to others.
