What day of the week do you pray the Glorious Mysteries of the Rosary?

The Glorious Mysteries are prayed on Wednesdays and Sundays.


The First Glorious Mystery: The Resurrection

Scripture: Luke 24: 1-12

Reflection:  It must have been astonishing Sunday morning. The city would have been drowning in gossip and emotion. But few, if any, would have recognized that this was the main event of human history. Jesus rose from the dead. On that day there was no doubt many who ignored it, and many others who doubted it, rejected it, were skeptical or cynical. These people have existed in every age and exist today, but you see them wandering through their lives confused. It is simply impossible to make sense of life and history without acknowledging the Resurrection.

The Second Glorious Mystery: The Ascension

Scripture: Luke 24:50-53

Reflection:  After spending 40 days with his disciples, Jesus ascended body and soul into heaven. Jesus did exactly what he said he would do. He was a man of his word. Why do we ignore and doubt his words so often? He said he would return one day. Do you ever think about it? Imagine if he came today. Are you ready? Would you recognize him?


The Third Glorious Mystery: The Descent of the Holy Spirit

Scripture: Acts 2:1-4

Reflection:  The disciples were afraid. Most of us have probably never experienced fear like the fear they were gripped with. They were afraid they would be killed for being Jesus' followers. But if they weren't killed, what were they to do, now that Jesus was gone? Then the Holy Spirit descended upon them and transformed them. Their fear was banished and they were filled with courage. This is the greatest before-and-after sequence the world has ever seen.


The Fourth Glorious Mystery: The Assumption

Scripture: Catechism of the Catholic Church Paragraph 966

Reflection:  Mary’s radical humility is an encyclopedia of lessons about the inner spiritual life. Imagine how rich her inner life must have been. Imagine what it was like for the first Christians to seek her counsel and guidance. Then at the end of her life, Mary was taken body and soul into heaven. Her reward for a life lived entirely for God. What’s keeping you from giving everything to God?


The Fifth Glorious Mystery: The Coronation of Mary as Queen of Heaven and Earth

Scripture: Revelation 12:1

Reflection: Mary’s courage, fidelity, and humility greatly pleased the Father, Son and the Holy Spirit. They crowned her queen of heaven. There is no greater title on earth than “Mother of God”—and no greater creature than Mary has ever existed. This Mary, your spiritual mother and the Queen of heaven, is the most celebrated woman on earth and in heaven. Who is greater than Mary? None but God.
