The Mysteries of the Day

Does anyone else think of days of the week in terms of mysteries of the rosary? I just realized the other day that I do this, and have for a couple of years without ever really giving it much thought.

Tuesday and Friday stand out from all the other days because they are the days I instantly equate with the Passion.

I look forward to Thursdays all week long, because, while it was initially hard for me to picture the Luminous Mysteries, I have to admit that they are my favorite now. I think it's because when I look back over our pilgrimage to the Holy Land when I was pregnant with Sadie the sites of the Baptism, the Wedding at Cana and the Transfiguration are some of the most vivid (although Gethsemane and the Church of the Holy Sepulchre really stand out too!).

And of course Monday and Saturday are Joyful and Wednesday and Sunday are Glorious!

It's hard to describe, but somehow the feel of the mysteries permeate the rest of the day, even on days when I forget to pray or when I pray several different mysteries.

And now to think of a thousandth post. This one is 999! I can't believe I'm almost to 1000!
