Hi, guys —

During Lent what mysteries of the Rosary do we pray on Sundays:

  • the Sorrowful or Glorious mysteries?

  { What mysteries of the Rosary are prayed during Lent and during the other seasons of the year? }

Mike replied:

Hi Nma,

On Sundays of Lent we pray the
Sorrowful mysteries.
On Sundays of Advent and Christmas we pray the
Joyful mysteries.
On Sundays of Easter we pray the
Glorious mysteries.
On Mondays year-round we pray the
Joyful mysteries.
On Tuesdays year-round we pray the
Sorrowful mysteries.
On Wednesdays year-round we pray the
Glorious mysteries.
On Thursdays year-round we pray the
Luminous mysteries.
On Fridays year-round we pray the
Sorrowful mysteries.
On Saturdays year-round we pray the
Joyful mysteries.

This is the Church's public pattern. Personally, you can say any set of Mysteries you wish, seeing this is a private devotion and not part of any doctrine of the faith.

On special feast days of joy, light, sadness, or glory, I will personally substitute the Church's pattern for whatever the set of mysteries is in accordance with the type of feast day it is.

e.g. a joyful feast day, a luminous feat day, a sorrowful feast day, or glorious feast day or, even better, pray an extra set of mysteries for the (joyful, luminous, sorrowful, or glorious) spirit of that feast day.

Hope this answers your question.

Mike
