The Four Mysteries of the Holy Rosary

The Four Mysteries of the Holy Rosary

ProLifeCorner-   To our dear friends who do not understand the prayer which is called the Holy Rosary. Some only hear the repetitive prayers of the Hail Mary; however the Rosary is a meditative prayer. It consists of four different mysteries: The Joyful Mysteries, the Sorrowful Mysteries, the Glorious Mysteries, and more recently the Luminous Mysteries, which were added by Pope John Paul II.

 We like to say “to Jesus through Mary.”  The prayers of the Rosary should be said while meditating upon the life of our Lord, given to us through Holy Scripture and sacred tradition.

In saying the Rosary, Mary invites us to join her on a journey through the life of Jesus.

We are placing these Rosary videos on our prayer page for the convenience of those who like to pray the Rosary. It is also our sincere desire that Christians of other denominations can be exposed to these mysteries and realize that the Rosary is just not a series of repetitive prayers, but a means that will draw us closer to the Lord and hopefully inspire us with a strong desire to turn to the Holy Bible in order to see what else our Lord wants to reveal to us through the guidance of the Holy Spirit and the printed words of the Bible.
