What is you favorite decade of the Rosary? Mine is probably the Crowning With Thorns, because I like to meditate on how much Christ has done for us.
My favorite mysteries are the Glorious Mysteries. My favorite decade is the Resurrection.
Very hard to decide,so I would say all but I am still becoming used to the Luminous mysteries.
The Assumption into Heaven of Mary. I love the Glorious Mysteries, and this one brings back a memory of
my Grandmother who always had a Rosary in her pockets, coats. Mom and her sisters prayed the Rosary as she was dying, and at the Assumption, she passed away peacefully.
My favorite mysteries are the Sorrowful ones, specially the Crucifixion of Our Lord.
It’s funny - at that decade - I look at people, ( if anyone is in front of me, )
and imagine a crown of thorns - upon their head.
I think of how we all must suffer something -
but certain, prideful people, you can see -
how out of place a crown, like that, would be - on them !
The true crown. Let us not be ashamed of any suffering -
its always for our benefit !
I always liked the Crowning of Mary Queen of Heaven, and the Ascension, because I just like to picture both of those events.
I used to also like the Wedding Feast at Cana because I pictured Jesus and Mary having a good time at the party. But my husband died a little while ago so now that decade is very difficult.
The Sorrowful mysteries are so sad, it is hard for me to think about them, but I make myself do it.
My favourite is the Annunciation. It embodies both “joyful” and “mystery” perfectly I think, and teaches us about accepting God’s plan for us and conforming our will to His.
I LOVE the Coronation of the Blessed Virgin Mary as Queen of Heaven & Earth! I imagine what it might have looked like.
Glorious mystery. crowning of the Blessed Virgin Mary
“Finding in the Temple” is my favorite mystery. I will often pray that mystery over and over and over.
The Luminous Mysteries are hands down my favorite. I like meditating on what Jesus did during his ministry on earth.
Probably the Crucifixion.
I also think the Institution of the Eucharist is lovely too.
This is a tough one for me. I think that I would have to have one for each mystery.
Luminous- Institution of the Eucharist
Sorrowful- Crowning with Thorns
