Together let us Pray The Glorious Mysteries… I absolutely love Praying The Rosary. These past 30 years have been beyond incredible when it comes to the depths of love I have for my Lord and our Lady. These are my own personal prayers, I hope you enjoy them and use them often. God Bless You Always!!!
1. The Resurrection (Faith) Mary Magdalene and the other Mary came to see the tomb. An angel appeared and said, "Do not be afraid! I know that you are seeking Jesus the crucified. He is not here, for He has been raised just as He said." (Matthew 28:1-10)“Dear Lord, my heart breaks for You seeing you suffer such a horrible death. Your love for me is unlike any other love I have ever known. I am so undeserving of all that You continue to give to me. In this mystery Lord I rejoice in Thanksgiving and Praise for Your mighty defeat of death. I give to You my love, my allegiance and a FAITH in You that shall last a lifetime, beyond eternity. Thank You Lord –Amen.”

2. The Ascension of Our Lord (Hope) As Jesus blessed them He parted from them and was taken up to heaven. (Luke 24:50-53) “Dear Lord, my love has only deepened for You. And now more than ever I can see how much You love me. In this wonderful glorious mystery You have given me so much HOPE, so much to look forward to. My heart swells with love and peace and joy on this most blessed glorious day. Thank You Lord for allowing me to love Your Mother so much, she has been such a blessing. –Amen”

This is a most blessed mystery to celebrate. I have come to understand The Holy Spirit in such a way that my heart beats faster and my Love and Joy are deeper, deeper than ever before. When you and the Father look upon each other, and the love You share between one another -fills Your hearts, You both sigh.. that sigh, that breathe is THE HOLY SPIRIT… That is so exciting.
