THURSDAY - 1:15PM
The Holy Rosary is a traditional Christo-centric Marian prayer; that is, a prayer centred on Jesus through Mary. Through the recitation of the Hail Mary, the Our Father, and the Glory Be, and through the movement of beads through our fingers, we meditate on mysteries (events) in the life of Jesus Christ.
The Church divides the mysteries of Jesus' life into four sets of five:
The Joyful Mysteries
The Luminous Mysteries
The Sorrowful Mysteries
The Glorious Mysteries
We pray the Rosary together as a Chaplaincy at Daily Devotions, usually on a Thursday.
The Church recommends to us that we take one set of mysteries at a time, and spread them across the week, so that (if we are praying the Rosary daily) we cover all of them over the course of a week.
The recommended pattern is:
Monday - Joyful Mysteries
Tuesday - Sorrowful Mysteries
Wednesday - Glorious Mysteries
Thursday - Luminous Mysteries
Friday - Sorrowful Mysteries
Saturday - Joyful Mysteries
Sunday - Glorious Mysteries
You can, though, always select any set you wish, or even mix and match between them, depending on how you wish to pray. You can also pray one decade, two, five, or all twenty if you wish!
Just remember - one mystery said with devotion, is worth twenty said without.
