Pray | The Glorious Mysteries

The Rosary is a contemplative, Scripture-based prayer that focuses on Christ and the Blessed Mother

The Rosary is a Scripture-based prayer that focuses on the lives of Christ and Mary through meditation on the different mysteries. The repetition of prayers in the Rosary are meant to lead a person into restful and contemplative prayer related to each mystery.

The five Glorious Mysteries are traditionally prayed on Wednesdays and, outside the seasons of Advent and Lent, on Sundays:

The Resurrection

“But at daybreak on the first day of the week they took the spices they had prepared and went to the tomb.They found the stone rolled away from the tomb; but when they entered, they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus. While they were puzzling over this, behold, two men in dazzling garments appeared to them. They were terrified and bowed their faces to the ground. They said to them, ‘Why do you seek the living one among the dead? He is not here, but he has been raised.’” — Luke 24:1-5

Fruit of the mystery: Faith

The Ascension

“So then the Lord Jesus, after he spoke to them, was taken up into heaven and took his seat at the right hand of God.” — Mark 16:19

Fruit of the mystery: Hope

The Descent of the Holy Spirit

“When the time for Pentecost was fulfilled, they were all in one place together. And suddenly there came from the sky a noise like a strong driving wind, and it filled the entire house in which they were. Then there appeared to them tongues as of fire, which parted and came to rest on each one of them. And they were all filled with the holy Spirit and began to speak in different tongues, as the Spirit enabled them to proclaim.” — Acts 2:1-4

Fruit of the mystery: Wisdom

The Assumption

“Behold, from now on will all ages call me blessed. The Mighty One has done great things for me, and holy is his name.” — Luke 1:48-49

Fruit of the mystery: Devotion to Mary

The Coronation of Mary

“A great sign appeared in the sky, a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars.” — Revelation 12:1

Fruit of the mystery: Grace of a happy death
