Xavier Society for the Blind

Wow! It's been five years since I have posted on this website. 

But tonight I was exploring some of our old books and offering some to a friend.  And two of the books I came across came from Xavier Society for the Blind.  I remember them not having an online presence...but I decided to see if that was still true. And...

Wow!  Yes, they do now. So, here it is:

Pray Along with a Rosary - Free Online or CD

Most of us...I started to say, although I myself am fully sighted (with my bifocals on). Let's try that again. Most people who are blind or visually impaired, who use computers, use either a screen reader (like my college son, soon, I hope) or screen magnification (like my high school son). But I'm always on the lookout to share Catholic resources with you, that are available in human voice. Maybe it's because I myself am not very auditory. But it's also because I think you - or your children - would enjoy more hearing books, talks and other items in human voice whenever possible.

So I was particularly happy to find this complete Rosary online. A priest (maybe, or maybe another man) announces the mystery and reads the Scriptural meditation, accompanied by soft background music. Then he says the first parts of each prayer, while a group of people say the second part.

You will need to have Real Player on your computer. If you don't have it, they provide a link on the home page to download it for free if you wish.

Alternatively, you can buy the CD for $14.95 to carry along with you or to use without getting online.

You can find this Rosary by going to the following site. Near the top, you will find "Online Rosary CD". Click on that link. Then you can scroll down to the mysteries you want to hear. Enjoy.
