Jesus in the Mysteries of the Rosary

The Holy Rosary is a millenary tradition. It’s pray combines the recitation of vocal prayers (Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory ...) with the consideration of the so-called "Mysteries of the Rosary", which are stellar moments - "flashes" - of Jesus Christ passing through this world.

This Christological journey goes from the Conception of Jesus in the bosom of the Virgin Mary to her Ascension (the cycle is completed with "The coming of the Holy Spirit" and the mysteries of the "Assumption" and "Coronation" of St. Mary). With good reason Saint Paul VI defined the Rosary as "a compendium of the life of Christ."

evangeli.net Subjects addresses the consideration of these mysteries, but with the methodology of our service: explaining the life of the Lord through the commented Gospel. Many comments from evangeli.net deal directly with the life of Jesus: now we recover them and present them at the rhythm, not of the liturgical calendar, but of the flow of the Mysteries of the Rosary.
