MYSTERIES OF THE ROSARY

Each Mystery focuses on a snapshot in the life of Jesus and Mary. These provide an anchor to meditate on while praying a decade of the Rosary and, when considered all together, allow us to contemplate the love Jesus has for humanity.

 As you pray each Mystery, you are encouraged to meditate on the scripture that accompanies it.


You can download two versions of the relevant passages for each set of Mysteries; one with the passage at the start of each decade, the second with a line from Scripture for each bead of each decade.
