Scripture and the Rosary: New Testament Mysteries, Old Testament Parallels

Tami Palladino shares her two-part journal of visual meditation TAMI WEBcreated to accompany the Turning to God’s Word Catholic Bible study, The Letter to the Hebrews: An Explanation of the Mechanism of Our Salvation, written by Jennifer McGaw Phelps and Matthew Phelps. Tami’s illustrations demonstrate a type of lectio divina that relies on visualization as an aid to deepening prayer life. If you enjoy drawing, you may want to try your hand at creating a similar prayer journal of your own. To look at Tami’s journal, click on the following links:
