The Mysteries of the Holy Rosary

The easiest way to memorize the mysteries of the Rosary

Praying with the Mysteries of the Rosary is a wonderful way to meditate on the life of Christ and his church. I enjoy using the mysteries as a way of deepening my prayer, and if you haven't make it part of yours, I encourage you to do so.

It took me some time actually get the Mysteries of the Rosary memorized, and I wanted to explain a quick memory trick that helped me understand which Mysteries are prayed on which day.

The best way to think about the Mysteries as a pattern, with Sunday and the Glorious Mysteries in the center.

Sunday Rosary: Glorious

Then on each side of the Sunday are the Joyful Mysteries.

Saturday Rosary: Joyful

Sunday Rosary: Glorious

Monday Rosary: Joyful

The next sides are the Sorrowful Mysteries.

Friday Rosary: Sorrowful

Saturday Rosary: Joyful

Sunday Rosary: Glorious

Monday Rosary: Joyful

Tuesday Rosary: Sorrowful

And the final sides to add are the Glorious Mystery on Wednesday and the Luminous Mystery on Thursday.

Thursday Rosary: Luminous

Friday Rosary: Sorrowful

Saturday Rosary: Joyful

Sunday Rosary: Glorious

Monday Rosary: Joyful

Tuesday Rosary: Sorrowful

Wednesday Rosary: Glorious

Each time you prepare to pray the Rosary, you can start with Sunday and the Glorious Mysteries, and then count to today. It's an easy way to memorize and pray with the Mysteries. Happy praying!

Luminous - Sorrowful - Joyful - Glorious - Joyful - Sorrowful - Glorious
