These files are scanned copies of The Rosary Color Book, drawings by Ettore Fattori, Copyright 1949 by Catechetical Guild.
This little book contains beautiful pictures of the Fifteen Mysteries of the Rosary for you to color. They were drawn by Mr. Ettore Fattori, a well-known Canadian artist. This book will also help you to learn how to say the Rosary in a way that will be pleasing to our Blessed Mother.
Each picture shows a prominent event in Our Lord’s life. On the page opposite the picture is a short explanation which explains this event, tells what it means to you, and suggests how you should imitate this part of Christ’s life.
This coloring book was published in 1949, a long time before the Luminous Mysteries. I do not have any Luminous Mysteries to share. There will NOT be Luminous Mysteries to share here. St. John the Baptist Church in Front Royal has some beautiful rosary coloring pages (originals), and include the Luminous Mysteries. I also have found these beautiful coloring pages of the Luminous Mysteries, which have been recently drawn to be a companion of these pages. She is selling the images for $10.
This isn’t easy, and I apologize for the long time to finish this project. I have to scan the images, clean them up, turn them into .jpg files, then merge into a document to export into a .pdf, and then upload to the blog (which can be a nightmare). It’s not a perfect job, but it’s the best that I could do.
Please note that these pages are for home and/or classroom use only.
Rosary Color Book:
NOTE: There will not be Luminous Mysteries, for those asking. This is an out-of-print coloring book.
To enhance praying the rosary, we also use Rosary Box, and printable 3-part Rosary cards. We always use a display flip easel with vertical pages with the Rosary prints or the colored pictures. (as described here). The images can be purchased from CHC or Leaflet Missal Company. During our family prayers (see Living the Liturgical Year in the Home) the children take turns turning the pages. They enjoy having a visual aid that is bigger than the little booklets. These images happen to be the same images in the original booklet I owned. The following files are done in color, but our version had black and white pictures.
