Luminous Mysteries

Postby Ben Kenobi » Fri Aug 17, 2007 10:29 pm

With the rosary, depending on the day, we say different prayers. Each set of prayers are called "Mysteries" and describe different miracles in the bible. In the rosary, at the very beginning we say the Apostles creed and then go into the first Mystery.

We will start with the first decade, for each mystery, and between each part, we will say the Hail Mary. At the end of the decade, we say the Glory Be, the Our Father and then the St Michael and the Fatima prayers. Then we move to the second Mystery and repeat the same decade.

This is why Rosaries have the beads they do the ten small ones and the one large one so that we can remember our prayers and keep track of them through the Rosary.

4. THE TRANSFIGURATION


1. Jesus took Peter, James and John up a high mountain to pray.

2. Jesus was transfigured before them.

3. "His face became as dazzling as the sun, his clothes as radiant as light."

5. Jesus foresaw the 'scandal of the cross,' and prepared them for it by this manifestation of His glory.

6. Moses and Elias (representing the Law and the prophets of the Old Testament) were conversing with Jesus about His passion.

7. "Do not think I have come to destroy the Law or the Prophets... but to fulfill them."

8. From a cloud came a voice: "This is my beloved Son, listen to Him."

9. Jesus admonishes them not to tell the vision to anyone until the Son of Man rises from the dead.

10. We too will behold the transfigured Jesus on the Last Day.

5. THE INSTITUTION OF THE EUCHARIST


1. I have eagerly desired to eat this Passover with you before I suffer.

2.Jesus took bread, blessed it: "Take and eat, this is My Body."

3. Taking the wine: "This cup is the new covenant in my Blood, shed for you."

4. At that eucharistic meal, Jesus celebrated the first Mass.

5. At every Mass the sacrifice of Calvary is made present.

6. At the Last Supper Jesus instituted the sacrament of Holy Orders to perpetuate this sacrifice.

7. "Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood remains in me and I in him."

8. The Eucharist is a sacrifice inasmuch as it is offered up, and a sacrament inasmuch as it is received.

9. In the Mass we offer ourselves to God, and God gives himself to us.

10. The Mass will be fruitful in the measure of our surrender to the Father.

Ok here's a helpful link, this is how we say the Holy Rosary in the Philippines.

http://www.medjugorje.org/rosary.htm

Please take note that after saying Glory Be at the end of each mystery, we say "The Prayer to Jesus Requested by Our Lady",

"O my Jesus, forgive us our sins, save us from the fires of hell, lead all souls to Heaven, and help especially those most in need of Your mercy."

After the last mystery, we begin to say the Litany of the Blessed Virgin Mary, followed by the Prayers after the Rosary and 3 Glory Be's.

Hope this helps.
