Other Suggested Mysteries for Praying the Rosary

Other Suggested Mysteries for Praying the Rosary

My purpose in writing this paper was to alert you to the possibility of your using the Bible to make up rosary mysteries that would help you. To give you an idea of how to go about it I have gone in to detail with the mysteries I have been using to bring my beliefs and my behavior into line with what they should be.

Those favorite mysteries of mine might not appeal to you at all. Let me give you two more examples of places in the Bible that I sometimes follow for my rosary. While you might not care for them, they might give you some ideas for branching out on your own in making up mysteries.
