Q&A – Joyful or Sorrowful mysteries kinda person?

SIDE NOTE: I realised I rambled completely and went on to talk about Jesus’ life as an adult when talking about the Joyful mysteries but I was only giving an example… ( If i’m making any sense…) sorry.. I think I even went on to talk about Jesus walking on water…. sorry…

Funny enough personally, I think that the Sorrowful mysteries teach us more about what it means to be human and to live with God and others. Yet, the Joyful Mysteries can teach us more about ourselves, and is more personal.

Sorrowful Mysteries…
The Agony in the Garden. Fruit of the Mystery: Sorrow for Sin, Uniformity with the will of God
The Scourging at the Pillar. Fruit of the Mystery: Purity
The Crowning with Thorns. Fruit of the Mystery: Courage
The Carrying of the Cross. Fruit of the Mystery: Patience
The Crucifixion. Fruit of the Mystery: Salvation

Joyful Mysteries..
The Annunciation. Fruit of the Mystery: Humility
The Visitation. Fruit of the Mystery: Love of Neighbors
The Nativity. Fruit of the Mystery: Detachment from the things of the world
The Presentation of Jesus at the Temple. Fruit of the Mystery: Obedience and Purity
The Finding of Jesus in the Temple. Fruit of the Mystery: True Wisdom and Joy of Finding Jesus
