Why the Family Should Pray the Sorrowful Mysteries of the Rosary for Lent
The Season of Lent is Upon Us
It is a 40 Day Period which begins on Ash Wednesday and ends on Holy Thursday. It is a time set aside for Spiritual Preparation for Easter. It is a time of renewal, new members of the Church prepare for Baptism and Christians recall their own baptism. It is a time of spiritual discipline and purification and a time for prayer and reflections. No better guide to reflections during Lent than the thoughtful pondering on the Sorrowful Mysteries of the Rosary, conversing as a family with Christ and his Blessed Mother on the events of the Passion and Death of Christ. As your family reflect on the Mysteries which call to mind Christ’s love and sacrifice for us, add silently or express openly some individual acts of love and sacrifices made for family, community and world.
