Cardinal of Madrid presents the Critical-Historical Edition of Holy Rosary
In the same place where St. Josemaría wrote his work Holy Rosary in 1931--the Church of the Royal Monastery of St. Elizabeth--the new critical-historical edition of the book was formally presented. Edited by Pedro Rodríguez, it includes an extensive historical and theological introduction (with ample space dedicated to the “theology of the rosary”), numerous illustrations and photographs, and above all the text and critical-historical commentary on St. Josemaría’s work.
The ceremony was presided over by Archbishop Cardinal Antonio Maria Rouco Varela, who said that Holy Rosary is “a book that helps us to savor and contemplate the life of Christ.” Also taking part in the presentation were Pedro Rodríguez, professor emeritus at the University of Navarra’s School of Theology, Miguel Angel Garrido, Professor of the Theory of Literature, and Jose Luis Illanes, director of the St. Josemaría Escrivá Historical Institute.
