- V. Pray for us, O Holy Mother of God.
- R. That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.
As suggested by the Pope John Paul II the Joyful mysteries are said on Monday and Saturday, the Luminous on Thursday, the Sorrowful on Tuesday and Friday, and the Glorious on Wednesday and Sunday (with this exception: Sundays of Christmas season - The Joyful; Sundays of Lent - Sorrowful)
***The purpose of the Rosary is to help keep in memory certain principal events or mysteries in the history of our salvation, and to thank and praise God for them. There are twenty mysteries reflected upon in the Rosary, and these are divided into the five JOYFUL MYSTERIES, the five LUMINOUS MYSTERIES, the fiveSORROWFUL MYSTERIES, and the five GLORIOUS MYSTERIES. You may also wish to pray the rosary online, with others or by yourself.
