Light And Life

The Light and Life is the bi-monthly (6 times a year) newsletter of the Rosary Confraternity. It contains feature stories and quotes from prominent church leaders, notifications of upcoming events, as well as a regular article entitled Theology for the Laity. Newsletter titles are taken from the theme of this article, which is geared to better daily living of the gospel.

The Light and Life is mailed to all those who are members of the Rosary Confraternity (within the USA). You may also subscribe without being a member of the confraternity. Also, the electronic edition is sent to all who wish to receive it, anywhere in the world.

These articles have become so numerous that a search is often helpful to find what you need. Try this:

Items marked with a .pdf have the entire newsletter available in Adobe Reader (.pdf). You may also access the front page article in html, where available, with the RC icon icon.
