The Rosary is a simple prayer that uses gentle repetition to move into deeper meditation. It gives us the opportunity to ponder God’s Word and the lives of Christ and Mary through reflection on different mysteries.
When praying the Rosary, we meditate on important events in the lives of Jesus and Mary. Twenty of these moments are captured in what we call the mysteries of the rosary. These mysteries are grouped into four sets: Joyful, Sorrowful, Glorious, and Luminous. Each set of mysteries is prayed on specific days of the week. They serve as a backdrop to the decades of the rosary and hold incredible insights worthy of reflection. As you meditate on these events, let the words of the prayers float by. Focus less on the words and more on the mysteries. Get lost in the scene. Imagine yourself there. Each of the mysteries of the rosary can teach a valuable lesson about life, love, and God’s dream for you.
