Unlock the Power of the Rosary.
“The power of the Rosary is beyond description,” said Venerable Fulton Sheen. It’s a potent, saint-making prayer. A spiritual weapon so powerful it has defeated armies and changed world history. It can resolve personal problems, rescue souls from eternal death, and conquer despair. But so few of us make the most of its graces.
Do you know how to wield this holy weapon? Learn now.
Now is the perfect time to unlock the power of the Rosary and grow in holiness.
Turn Your Struggle Into a Source of Grace
We try our best. Some of us pray the Rosary fairly often, but it can be laborious, and we can struggle to stay focused. Even if we pray it regularly, we may not be tapping into its promised graces.
We’re here to help. Full of Grace, presented by Good Catholic, will help you unlock the richness of this devotion and grow closer to Jesus Christ with the help of Our Lady. Discover the life of Our Lord in the mysteries of the Rosary, and accompany Him during his Passion.
Now is the perfect time to commit to praying the Rosary more often, and with deeper meditation. Along with Mary, we walk with Our Lord through His life.
We experience His miracles and teachings through the eyes of His Mother.
We share in her great joy at the Annunciation, Visitation, and Nativity.
We suffer alongside her during Jesus’ Passion and death, and sit with her at the foot of the Cross.
Mary will always bring our prayers, hopes, and desires to her Son.
In Full of Grace, you’ll learn about the profound meaning of the Rosary devotion, discover practical ways to grow closer to the Blessed Mother, and be equipped with all you need to make your daily Rosary a time of fruitful prayer.
We’ll also answer common questions to help you better understand and pray the Rosary, including:
- Why is it important to pray the Rosary at all?
- Where did the Rosary come from?
- Is there a “right” way to pray it?
- How is it possible to contemplate the Mystery and recite the words of the Our Father and Hail Mary at the same time?
- How can the Rosary help us have holier and more fruitful lives?
Go to Mary. Commit to praying the Rosary. Gain a deeper understanding of its awesome power with Full of Grace, and walk the Way of the Cross with Jesus and Mary.
Why Join This Series?
Full of Grace is designed to help you understand the power of the Rosary, pray it with greater efficacy, and grow in holiness through the graces it yields. This prayer is vital to the spiritual life of every Catholic. Our Lady herself has requested that we pray it daily—and such a request, coming from our good and loving Mother, is for the welfare of our own souls. “If you persevere in reciting the Rosary,” said Blessed Alan de la Roche, “this will be a most probable sign of your eternal salvation.”

Father John Eckert
Fr. John Eckert is a priest of the Diocese of Charlotte, North Carolina. A cradle Catholic, he grew up surrounded by family, friends, and clergy who exemplified what it meant to truly live the Faith. This helped him discern his calling to the priesthood from a young age. He graduated from Saint Louis University in 2004 with a degree in Political Science and Communication. He entered seminary soon afterwards, studying at the Pontifical College Josephinum in Ohio. In 2010, he was ordained a priest for the Diocese of Charlotte.

When not writing, Peter is likely to be found re-reading his many books, playing his piano, or watching Boston sports. His deep love of ancient and medieval history lends itself to unpacking the many rich traditions of our Catholic faith. He and his wife currently reside in Charlotte, North Carolina.

Really enjoying this series on the Rosary, and Father Eckert is excellent! Thanks Good Catholic
Thank you Good Catholic for a wonderful series, which has been such a powerful resource during these challenging times. I am grateful to Peter Gohn and Whitney Hetzel for their thought-provoking writings and inspiring reflections and to Fr. Eckert, whose poignant precises’ beautifully wove together each episode sharing insights on the power of the Holy Rosary; our tether to Heaven!
Thank you so much for an uplifting, inspirational and interesting series.
My heartfelt gratitude to everyone who poured their precious time, effort, and sacrificial Love into creating this series for us. And a warm ?? A-Dios? to my fellow sojourners who journeyed with me on this pilgrimage of God’s mysterious love. May we continue to be tethered to one another in His Mystical Body with the recitation of each Hail Mary, Our Father, and Glory Be as we enter ever more deeply into the Joyful, Sorrowful, Luminous and most Glorious Humanity and Divinity of Our God in whom we are all united as one! To God be the Glory Now and Forever!
I actually felt a little sad as Full of Grace came to an end today. I’ve come to look so forward to my time reading, reflecting, listening to Fr Eckert. I have no doubt my time praying the Rosary each day will continue though. Thank you for instilling this new beautiful habit into my daily life.
I have so enjoyed this series, really needed it during this strange time. Going to miss Fr. Eckert’s calmness and wisdom.
Another wonderful series. Thanks to all of you at Good Catholic and Father Eckert. You have enriched many lives with the series especially mine. Thank you again.
What a blessing this series has filled me with, and I look forward to repeating it again soon. Thank you Catholic Company for extending the series for a year.
Thank you so much for her another great series. I love anything that has to do with the Rosary, initially I was dragging my feet to sign up, so I missed out on the discount price, but the Holy Spirit continued to urge me to sign up, and I did a day before the series started, I must say I grateful for that prompting, because I would have missed out big time. Thanks to all who brought this series together, I have learnt valuable lessons from it. God bless us all.
Another great series. I have truly loved learning more about the Rosary and how to pray it.
Another blessed & wonderful series Thank you Father Eckert. As a convert to the Catholic Faith for 53 years I never learn to pray the Rosary until about 5 years ago from listening to the Gus Lloyd show on The Catholic Channel on SiriusXM. But no one could tell me about the Rosary. Many Catholics recite the Rosary because they were taught to in school or Religious Education programs. It is just something you do if you are Catholic. So Thank You for this series.
i was baptized Catholic 63 years ago (oh my goodness). Grew up in a catholic school and went to Mass with my family. FINALLY I am starting to understand The Holy Rosary. Thank you Good Catholic for this beautiful series and all of the series. This is a special gift this Lenten season for me
