On Wednesday, May 31st at 7pm in the church, St. Cletus is inviting everyone to join in praying the Rosary together. The rosary has 20 mysteries to meditate upon, grouped into 4 groups of 5 mysteries – Joyful, Sorrowful, Luminous, and Glorious. Those categories are usually prayed on specific days of the week except for some people who pray the same mysteries during special seasons, such as praying the Joyful mysteries throughout Advent as we focus on preparing for Jesus Nativity.
On May 31st, we will be praying the Glorious mysteries. We will have begun Ordinary Time by then so we will be following the “normal” days for the categories – the Joyful Mysteries are prayed on Monday and Saturday, the Sorrowful mysteries on Tuesday and Friday, the Luminous mysteries on Thursday, and, the Glorious mysteries on Wednesday and Sunday. Again, I know that some people do not follow any sort of “schedule” and simply pray, and that is just fine.
Finally, May 31st also happens to be the Feast of the Visitation of Mary to her cousin Elizabeth.
