Celebrating the Centennial Appearance of Our Lady of Fatima

A year ago at this time, I had no idea that I would be releasing my first book this May in conjunction with the 100 year anniversary of the appearance of Our Blessed Mother, Mary, to three shepherd children in Fatima, Portugal. Moreover, I had no idea that I would be writing a nonfiction book on the Rosary!  I thought that I would be finishing up my much-neglected novel.  But my plans mean nothing—my hands do not belong to me—I am consecrated to Jesus through the Immaculate Heart of Mary.  This means that I am simply an instrument in her hands to do with me as she will.

I am very grateful to ALL the super busy people that took the time to read my book and to the four that have written the endorsements below:

Bead by Bead is an excellent resource for helping us all better appreciate and pray the mysteries of the Rosary."

Author of 33 Days to Morning Glory

“In this centenary anniversary of the appearance of the Blessed Virgin Mother at Fatima, Meggie K. Daly has given to the Church and the world a beautiful gift in the form of her book, Bead by Bead: The Scriptural Rosary. Increasingly, numerous Catholics have discovered the Holy Scriptures as an encounter with Christ—Meggie has delivered a book which unites the twin gifts of the Word of God and the Holy Rosary—a beautiful and powerful combination leading to holiness. In our turn, we can respond to Our Lady of the Rosary by praying the Scriptural Rosary, fulfilling our Lady’s request at Fatima by bringing to life the teaching of St. John Paul II, “The Rosary is a Gospel prayer.”

"Meggie K. Daly’s Bead by Bead: the Scriptural Rosary is more than just a devotional aide; it provides a brief history of the Rosary in addition to her testimony from rosary skeptic to devotee . She shares the fruit of her experience with the Rosary after discovering the richness of the saints and their devotion to Mary. Meggie K. Daly leads the reader into an experience of the Rosary as a prayer experience rooted in the Scriptures. The pages of the Gospel will certainly come alive for anyone who reads and uses this book." 
- Fr. Edward Looney 
Author of the best-selling rosary devotional A Rosary Litany

"Meggie K. Daly's Bead by Bead: The Scriptural Rosary is a terrific resource for anyone who wants to take their daily recitation of the Rosary to a whole different—and higher—level. Using this book, the reader has at his/her disposal a line of scripture for each bead that will help the reader to reflect more deeply on the mysteries and prayers of the Holy Rosary. Includes background, history, resources and an appendix, as well as the author's journey towards a Scriptural Rosary. Highly recommend!"
