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. He has served as Parochial Vicar of Our Lady of Grace in Greensboro and as pastor of St. John the Baptist in Tryon. He now serves as pastor of Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Salisbury, where he has been in residence since 2014.
Peter Gohn, a proud Irish Catholic and Massachusetts native, studied History and Theology at The Catholic University of America in Washington, D.C. He then spent several years teaching at Christ the King Catholic High School near Charlotte, North Carolina, while also working as a freelance editor. He joined The Catholic Company in 2017 and became a key member of the Good Catholic project soon after it was launched. 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.

How I am loving this study!!!!!
Just want to thank Good Catholic. I??ve taken all of the courses and I believe this one is my absolute favorite. Thank you for all your hard work and dedication.
Full Of Grace and Father Eckert’s teachings on the mysteries of the Holy Rosary is a real game changer for me. I converted to Catholicism as an adult and have always been drawn to the Rosary and our Blessed Mother. This course has truly expanded my knowledge and helped my love for praying the Rosary deepen. I more clearly see and understand how praying the Rosary every day draws me closer to God and strengthens my relationship with Christ. Thanks Father Eckert and Good CatholicTeam for this class!
Thank you, Whitney, for your beautiful reflection on Mary as our Mother.
I’m sorry to be a day late in writing about Day 25. I want to say how beautifully Whitney Hetzel tied everything in as a mother and how our Blessed Mother offered such comforting words of consolation to Juan Diego. Those words truly echo our current feelings and situation. I found great solace in Day 25 reflections and I thank you for that. God bless and protect us all, and may we remain under Our Mother’s protective mantle.
I am really going to miss this series once Lent is over. I look forward to it every day. Thank you Father Eckert and everyone else who worked so hard on this.
Thank you Father Eckert for your meditative words into these mysteries. They have been helpful fo me in focusing on and meditating on the particular mystery. The Scourging of Jesus at the pillar was personally helpful to me. Once again I love these series and I am eternally grateful for them.
