The Sorrowful Mysteries: The Illuminated Rosary


The Sorrowful Mysteries illuminates the sorrowful mysteries of the rosary in sixty works of sacred art-one for each bead-to help readers meditate on the rosary: – Each two-page spread includes a work of art on one page, and the words of the appropriate prayer on the opposite page. – A string of “beads” at the bottom of the text marks progress through each decade. – Each decade opens with a beautiful Scripture-based introduction to one of the joyful mysteries (the Agony in the Garden, Scourging at the Pillar, Crowning with Thorns, Carrying of the Cross, and Crucifixion) as well as suggested prayer intentions. The Sorrowful Mysteries is perfect for children just learning to pray the rosary. Younger children can turn the page after each Our Father and Hail Mary, and older children can use the text on each page to help them lead the rosary and memorize the prayers. The pages of The Sorrowful Mysteries feature the work of classical artists ranging from anonymous manuscript illuminators to such greats as Rubens, Rafael, Delacroix, Titian, Caravaggio and more. Several works by contemporary artists round out The Sorrowful Mysteries, inviting readers to a deeper appreciation of the mysteries of the life of Christ. The Sorrowful Mysteries is part of The Illuminated Rosary series.
