I do love that the Rosary Novenas to Our Lady has an ebook version, hence the 3 star rating. Thank you very much for that. The part that I do NOT like (lack of 5 stars) is that you have changed the original wording from the "little blue book" we have all used for so many many years. We Catholics know our prays and all but memorize the Novenas Mysteries. There was something so beautiful and familiar about the original wording that is lacking in this more "politically correct" version. I do very much enjoy the Mysteries of Light which this version includes. I just wish that an ebook ORIGINAL version was available. I say the Rosary Novenas to Our Lady with my family who use the "little blue book" original version and it makes our family rosary time more awkward and not flowing as it should or use to. If anyone has an idea on how to fix or adjust this, I would so appreciate any and all help. You know there would be a rosary said in your name :)
When I was single (with no prospects in sight), praying the 54 day rosary novena gave me so much peace and comfort! I joined a couple of Catholic Single websites when I was in my thirties and corresponded with several nice men, but most did not seem very serious about finding a good Catholic spouse or seemed to just be looking for a penpal (I love writing letters and receiving mail, but what I really wanted was a good Catholic gentleman to be my husband!). Quite a few times when I thought I found a good guy, I prayed the 54 day rosary novena for discernment about a certain guy and many times I would receive an answer to whether this was the right guy or not before the novena ended. I could always count on this novena for answers! It has NEVER failed me!

A few years later I prayed this 54 day rosary novena again and received a nice email in December 2006 from a gentleman who lived in the same state as I did. We corresponded for a few months on the website, talked on the phone, and finally met in person on March 19th, 2006 (St. Joseph's Feast Day!). We met at my church and prayed a rosary together. Later on, I brought him over to my house to meet my Mom and sister. We enjoyed a wonderful St. Patrick's Day meal together (He even bought us Irish Soda bread - my favorite!)and took a lovely walk around my neighborhood. When it was time for him to leave, he expressed disappointment he couldn't see me the following Saturday due to a previous appointment he already had scheduled. But two weeks later he returned and we had another nice day together. We continued seeing each other all spring and summer. September 17th, 2006, he asked me to marry him. I was shocked, but of course said yes! His words: "And we're keeping the cat." LOL! We picked June 16th 2007, the Feast of the Immaculate Heart of Mary as our wedding day to thank God and Our Lady for bringing us together!

We just celebrated our 4th anniversary! We thank God and Our Lady every day for bringing us together, blessing us with a happy marriage, and answering our prayers! Good things DO come to those who wait! I highly recommend praying this novena! It is very POWERFUL! You too will receive answers to your prayers! May God Bless you!
Overall good booklet. However, does not have the Imprimatur or Nihil Obstat stamp of approval (ie has not been reviewed to be free of error). Hence, I have found a couple of the meditations to be of questionable interpretation. In those cases, I just stick with traditional teachings on the mysteries for reflection (ie 4th Glorious Mystery). I could not find any other option for booklets on the 54 day novena, so this will have to suffice.
A friend told me about the 54 day Novena to Mary and that there was a booklet with the associated readings and prayers. I immediately came to Amazon and found exactly what I needed. This Novena is powerful. I am currently on my 44th day of the Novena which is the 17th day of Thanksgiving to the Blessed Mother.
This Novena was used by my husband before we met to find a good spouse while I was praying the 30 Day Prayer to the Blessed Virgin Mary Novena for the same petition for me...and it brought us together. We've been married for 34 yrs and were Blessed with three children and each of our families were a Blessing to us too over the yrs. Great Novena.....and this version includes the Luminous Mysteries too.
My confirmation sponsor gave me this booklet and told me her friend and her friend's sister both prayed this novena to find their husbands and it worked. I actually decided to pray the novena for the conversion of my ex-boyfriend, but during my last week of the novena (in the thanksgiving half) I met a wonderful Catholic guy who asked me out on a date. We are now happily married, and I am giving this novena as a gift to our unhappily single friend. I highly recommend this novena to anyone seeking guidance in their lives.
