Today is Friday

Today is Friday.  The Rosary Mysteries?  The Sorrowful, of course.  I love the rosary.  If you are really dedicated there is a character trait to each of the mysteries that can be worked on.  I used to do the character traits.  For instance, for "carrying of the cross, one might ask, dear Jesus, help me carry my crosses without complaint".  For the Visitation, "please guide me to good relationships with my family"

Tuesdays and Fridays  are the Sorrowful mysteries.  When I get to the fifth one (Jesus dying on the cross)  I like to remember his seven last words which are as follows, not in any particular order.

It is finished
I thirst
Mother your son, son your mother
Father forgive them for they know not what they do
Father, why have you forsaken me?
Today you will be with me in Paradise
Father, into your hands I commend my spirit

The other sorrowful mysteries, Agony in the Garden, The scourging, Crowning with Thorns, Carrying of the Cross.

While doing these prayers..Our Father and ten Hail Mary's the best thing to help your spirit with belief is to mentally envision the mystery.  There are plenty of famous paintings one can use or you can just use ones own imagination.  I like to interject my own people (Laurentian drama style)

I think of my daughter who is named Natalie when I imagine the Nativity scene (third Joyful).  I think of her and her role as a young mother when I call to mind Mary and the baby Jesus.

I think of myself and my sister when I think of Mary and Elizabeth.  I am Amy Maria and my sister is Lisa which is a derivation of Elizabeth.  I bring the mystery home, I think of how nice it would be to have a genuine friendship with her.

The Luminous mystery number 2.  The wedding at Cana.  I think about Mary instructing Jesus to do his first miracle.  Nice Jewish Mom knows it is the right time to get her son onto his ministry.

I believe that when you are vibrating the air with your words and envisioning the actual mystery while holding a bead, that you unite yourself with all the aspects of Jesus's life.  You go there in a sense.  You enter into a different dimension and are with him.  I see it as a form of time travel.

The Rosary takes about twenty minutes.  I am sure that there are plenty of on line guides on all the prayers and there order.
