Comparison of The Scripture Rosary vs Praying the Rosary-Bead by Bead (1)

 

In the Sorrowful Mysteries we stand beneath the Cross of Jesus, coming face to face with the truth of his insistence that the Christ must suffer and die. No matter that we long to cry out, if only we had been there; we still encounter the reality of our human position
and the truth that is Our Lord’s. We sense the sword piercing the heart of his Mother, and pray that it may open our whole being to the agony and the power that the infinite love of Jesus in his Passion chose and endured for us

 

Thank you very much for “EWTN- The Holy Rosarywhere above paragraph regarding The Sorrowful Mysteries is excerpted from.
