"The Lord will give strength to his people:
the Lord will bless his people with peace."
-Psalm 28:10

scriptural joyful mysteries

While praying the Scriptural Glorious Mysteries you will discover that the Rosary is in fact the prayer of the Gospels.

When the meditations on the Rosary and in this case on the Glorious Mysteries of the Rosary, are accompanied by the Catholic Rosary prayers, the events in the life of Jesus come alive.

The joys and sorrows of Mary and Jesus were recounted in the Joyful and Sorrowful Mysteries. Jesus' mission was brought into focus in the Luminous Mysteries. In these others you discovered that Mary played a key role in the Incarnation and the redemption of mankind.

In the Glorious Mysteries Jesus and Mary's triumphs and glories are meditated upon and the soul of the Rosary comes to full bloom as the fruits and virtues the Rosary imparts on those devoted to it are revealed.

The the Scriptural Glorious Mysteries include...

  • to place your hope in God
  • to love God with your whole being
They also will bestow on you a desire for a happy death and teach you the so called secret of Mary - total trust in her intercessory power before the throne of God.

The peace you will gain from meditating on this final set of mysteries is insurmountable.
