I have a long drive to/from work every day and so I started praying all mysteries of the rosary. I pray two mysteries on the way to work and the other two driving home. I thought it would be really difficult (and boring) but I’m amazed to realize that the whole experience is really quite refreshing and calming (also that means I listen to one hour less talk radio which has its benefits). I go through all sorts of prayers and meditations on themes of sorrow, thankfulness, asking for strength/mercy/guidance, etc. To anyone that has a long commute I highly recommend giving it a try. It really focuses you on what is truly important in life.
Right now I’m praying in this order: Joyful, Sorrowful, Glorious, Luminous. Is there a “correct” order I should follow? It seems like the Luminous mystery should go second since that is where it falls chronologically. Thanks.
