Day 19 - Sunday, March 3rd - Sorrowful Mysteries

--hide--


"There is one thing I desire from you above everything else: that your normal meditation be, if possible, around the Life, Passion and Death, and also the Resurrection and Ascension of our Lord Jesus Christ. You can then meditate on His birth, His flight into Egypt and His life there, His return and His hidden life in the workshop of Nazareth up to the age of thirty, His humility in His desire to be baptized by His precursor St. John. You can meditate on His public life, His most painful Passion and Death, the institution of the most Holy Sacrament, the very evening men were preparing the most atrocious sufferings. You can meditate again on Jesus praying in the Garden of Olives, sweating blood knowing what sufferings men were preparing for Him and the ingratitude of men who would not make use of His merits. You can meditate also on Jesus being dragged and led to the tribunal, flagellated and crowned with thorns, the course He climbed to Calvary laden with the cross, His crucifixion and finally His death on the cross with all the suffering of seeing His most sorrowful mother."


St. Pio (Padre Pio of Pietrelcina)


This beautiful quote encompasses all of the rosary (including references to the luminous mysteries which would be added some 4 decades later). The part I highlighted discusses the mysteries we'll pray today. Lent is a good time to delve ito the Passion. There are many good resources online and in Catholic bookstores for this. Let's try to use the remaining weeks of Lent to gain a deeper undertanding and appreciation of the sufferings of our Lord.

Today is day 19 of your novena. Yesterday we completed our second 9-day novena of petition. Today marks the commencement of the third and final novena of petition which concludes on day 27.


On day 28, we'llbegin three 9-day novenas of thanksgiving, no longer requesting that our petitions (and those of everyone praying the novena with us) will be answered but, instead, thanking Our Lady for all she has obtained or will obtain for us because of this novena. (Remember that God often answers prayers in ways or at times we least expect. We must also remember that "no" is an answer as well.) Expressing deep gratitude for things we may not have received might seem counter-intuitive, especially if we feel our prayers haven't been answered, but to me the greatest strength and spiritual growth I've received praying this novena came in trusting God from that point on.

Assumpta est Maria in coelum, gaudent angeli! (Mary is assumed into heaven and the angels rejoice!)

The Fourth Glorious Mystery - The Assumption of Mary. She was given the two wings of a large eagle, in order to fly to her place in the desert, where she will be taken care of . . . safe from the dragon's attack. (Revelation 12:14).

Being raised to heaven, body and soul. Mary is at the right hand of Jesus. Jesus is at the right hand of the Father. Mary is in an unique place to intercede for us. She is in union with the Blessed Trinity by the grace of God.

Future Dignity. Mary, the gift that you received was a gift for the Church. It brings us hope and comfort to know that God is providing for our eternal life. Mary, help us not to focus on passing pleasures, but rather to set our hearts on the will of the Father!
