Ruminating on the mysteries daily keeps your faith in the forefront of your mind, as it should be, as all of your thoughts and actions everyday should be done with the Word of God in mind. Many look to the Lord for comfort during trying times but the word of God is meant to be lived. Let every word from your mouth be lit by the light of Jesus Christ and with every action allow The Father to do his good works through you.
When praying the Rosary, Wednesday and Sunday the Glorious Mysteries are meditated upon.
Here are the 5 Glorious Mysteries:
The Resurrection of Jesus Christ—As Mary and Mary Magdalene arrived at the sepulcher, an angel appeared to them and said, “Fear not ye! For I know that ye seek Jesus, which was crucified. He is not here. For he has risen, as he said.” (Matthew 28, 1-6)
The Ascension of Jesus Christ—Jesus appeared before the apostles and said, “Peace to you” The apostles became frightened, believing that they were seeing a ghost. Jesus saw this and answered, “Why are ye troubled? And wherefore do reasonings come up in your hearts? See my hands and my feet, that I am he, handle me and see, because a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as ye see me having.” He then showed them his hands and feet. “And, lo, I do send the promise of my Father upon you, but ye—abide ye in the city of Jerusalem till ye be clothed with power from on high.” Jesus then led the apostles to Bethany, blessed them and ascended to Heaven to sit at the right hand of his Father. (Quotes from Luke 24, 36-51)
The Descent of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost—And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting. And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance. (Act2, 1-4)
The Assumption of the blessed Virgin Mary into Heaven—The blessed joining of Mary with her divine son in Heaven.
The Coronation of Mary as Queen of Heaven and Earth—There appeared a great sign in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars. (Rev 12, 1)
