The Sorrowful Mysteries – Part 1: Communion with Jesus means becoming Eucharist. “Are you willing to suffer?” This is what Jesus asked Terry in a life-changing moment. In the first Mystery, the Agony in the Garden, this is our moment of decision to follow Christ all the way. In the Scourging, this is the pain we feel when our faith is rejected by those we want to help; some of our fruits that had started to grow are snipped off. In the Crowning of Thorns, our minds are attacked by doubts, fears, and false accusations; we look at the fruit dying on the ground and mourn. In Carrying the Cross, our burdens become light when yoked to Jesus; we know that a better fruit will grow.
Originally recorded as a live retreat in New Zealand, the 10-part series “Mystical Union with Christ in Daily Life uses the Mysteries of the Rosary to help you rise to new heights of faith, hope and love.
