The Sorrowful Mysteries

As a guide to meditation on the Mysteries of the day, I have a little "prayerbook" on my Rosary website.  Here is a devotional guide to today's Sorrowful Mysteries.

Often I find myself dwelling on the Agony in the Garden.  I think it is at that point that i can most relate to the suffering of Jesus.  When I peer beyond that to all He underwent at the hands of His tormentors, for my sake, my understanding fails me.  The awful torments He chose out of love!  But mental distress, this I can guess at, at least dimly.

The most distressing thought of all is that it is my sins which caused this; and which daily still serve to distress Him.

King of Mercy, King of Love!
