Christine Haapala

SNearly a decade ago, after teaching a tenth grade CCD class which integrated the fifteen mysteries of the Rosary into the Bible Study course curriculum, Christine Haapala, the author, thought "What if there is a connection between the 150 Psalms and 150 Hail Marys of the Rosary?" In the Catechism of the Catholic Church this connection is explained as "Medieval piety in the West developed the prayer of the rosary as a popular substitute for the Liturgy of the Hours." (CCC 2678) Based on this inspiration, the author completed and, then, published her first book From Genesis to Revelation: Seven Scriptural Rosaries, Christendom Press, 1996. This newest edition is her most recent Scriptural Rosary book - Speak, Lord, I am Listening (now in 2nd edition with Luminous Mysteries) (for Children, but adults love it as well. After retiring from a civil engineering career, Gus Muller fulfilled a life long desire to study art and paint seriously. It wasn’t long before he discovered his interest and talent for watercolors and in the creative effects he could achieve with the medium’s transparent paints. For the past 13 years he has specialized mainly in landscapes, seascapes, florals and portraits, many of which are displayed in various locations in Virginia, Maryland, and New Jersey. In the late 1990s, he did paintings of Mother Theresa and the Blessed Mother, and a painting of Holy Spirit Church which were auctioned to benefit his parish’s Knights of Columbus chapter.
