This is the passage from Page 2 of the site. I think this is what Carrie has had difficulty finding. Sometimes I can copy and paste from pdf's and sometimes I can't this time I could. I include the site and page number for citation.

www.knightsofdivinemercy.com

The Novena consists of five decades of the Rosary
each day for twenty seven days in petition; then
immediately five decades each day for twenty seven days
in thanksgiving. whether or not the request has been
granted.

The meditations vary from day to day. On the first
day meditate on the Joyful Mysteries: on the second day the
Sorrowful Mysteries: on the third day the Glorious
Mysteries: on the fourth day meditate again on the Joyful
Mysteries; and so on throughout the fifty four days.

I can't guarantee that I won't accidentally skip a day. I pray for God's grace in that.

But I'm open to this. Let's do it.

This still does not state it was revealed this way. I found on another site that it said it WAS revealed alternating mysteries--- but here is the quote:

"To do the novena properly — one must pray the Rosary for 54 consecutive days, without missing a day, and must pray the particular Mystery indicated for that day following the correct sequence. Some people have asked over time about the Luminous Mysteries — this novena was given by Our Lady as noted above in 1884 and only allows for the Joyful, Sorrowful and Glorious Mysteries."




I'm sorry, I'm REEALLLY having a hard time buying into this aspect with no quotes from the revelation. It just doesn't sound in line with the way revelations are passed on. To be clear: I DO believe in the revelation of the 54 day novena, but I'm betting someone else put some extra rules in there on their own. I could be completely wrong on this...

The thing is, the church has set forth proper days and balance for the mystery rotation. The unity of that with all Rosary praying Catholics in the world is a big deal. I'm not trying to argue this way of praying is better than another way. It's simply a devotion-- we can pray the sorrowful mysteries every day if we wanted or needed to.


I'm a catholic and liturgy nerd, so these things fascinate me. I'm bringing this up because I think honesty is important. Sure, I could pray the mysteries however I wanted and there would be graces from that. I don't want to be placated with such a response here. I don't need placation or need to be affirmed in this. Just wanting honesty.

Carrie, above is the revelation to pray three novenas in petition and three in thanksgiving in a vision from the Holy Mother. I would suspect the manner as presented her is a direct result of how it was said at the time of this revelation and has been passed on in that manner? Lauren

Yes...that was the site I quoted from.

To repeat: I'm not doubting the revelation of the 54 day novena. I'm doubting the extra rules that seem to be put in their with no substantial record of them, especially in regards to the way it is worded.
