A Child-like Rosary

Sunday, October 7


In today’s Gospel Jesus tells us that in order to enter into the Kingdom of God we must be like little children. He speaks, of course, about being childlike and not, despite our actions at times, being childish. A child is trusting, believes with all their heart, is innocent, and sees the wonders of creation without asking many pointless questions about “How?” but delights in the asking of “Why?” With this simplicity in mind, rather than complicate issues as adults so often do, consider the Divine Mysteries of the Rosary as a child might. Think of the Mysteries and what Jesus, our Elder Brother, did in the simplicity that is God’s way and not man’s …


#1, The 1st. Joyful Mystery, The Annunciation … Jesus begins to fulfill the greatest of all prophecies.

#2, The 2nd. Joyful Mystery, The Visitation … Jesus begins sharing Himself with others.

#3, The 3rd. Joyful Mystery, The Nativity … Jesus enters into human affairs fully and in Person.

#4, The Fourth Joyful Mystery, The Presentation … Jesus rewards the faithfulness of those who love Him.

#5, The Fifth Joyful Mystery, The Finding in the Temple … Jesus loves His Father and takes care of His Father’s business.


#6, The First Sorrowful Mystery, The Agony in the Garden … Jesus puts the needs of others first.

#7, The Second Sorrowful Mystery, The Scourging … Jesus offers Himself for the healing of others.

#8, The Third Sorrowful Mystery, The Crowning with Thorns … Jesus shows us what it takes to be a true King.

#9, The Fourth Sorrowful Mystery, The Carrying of the Cross … Jesus sets us an example for daily living.

#10, The Fifth Sorrowful Mystery, The Crucifixion … Jesus gives His life for our’s.


#11, The First Glorious Mystery, The Resurrection … Jesus shows us that He has the power to fulfill all His promises.

#12, The Second Glorious Mystery, The Ascension … Jesus goes to get Home ready for us.

#13, The Third Glorious Mystery, The Decent of the Holy Spirit … Jesus sends us Comfort to care for us til He comes back for us.

#14, The Fourth Glorious Mystery, The Assumption of the Blessed Virgin … Jesus sets an example for loving our mother.

#15, The Fifth Glorious Mystery, The Coronation of Mary … Jesus gives us the most wonderful and loving of Queens.


The above is a personal attempt on my part to express the Rosaries Wonders with childlike simplicity. You might like to try to lay the years of accumulated adult bias aside (I understand its hard to do) and go from there.


God bless. ๐Ÿ™‚
