Shines Light On All Rosary Mysteries

I am the light of the world: he that followeth me,
walketh not in darkness, but shall have the light of life."
-John 8:12

scriptural joyful mysteries

Since Pope John Paul II gave us the scriptural Luminous Mysteries, in has been quite clear that these mysteries shine light on the Joyful, Sorrowful, and Glorious Mysteries.

  • They illuminate the significance of the joys of Jesus' childhood.
  • They conclude with the institution of the Eucharist which is the sacramental act in which the Sorrowful Mysteries commemorate.
  • And are a preview of the glorious events to come that you meditate upon in the Glorious Mysteries.

These Scriptural Mysteries are a gift to the Church and should be embraced and used to internalize the life of Jesus in your life and to help you attain serenity in your daily dealings.
