The Luminous Mysteries
An Excerpt from
"This addition of these new mysteries, without prejudice to any essential aspect of the prayer's traditional format, is meant to give it fresh life and to rekindle renewed interest in the Rosary's place within Christian spirituality as a true doorway to the depths of the Heart of Christ, ocean of joy and of light, of suffering and of glory."
"Committed to the exemplification of Charity, Unity, Fraternity & Patriotism."
