Fruits of the Mysteries of the Rosary
This last week we celebrated the Assumption of our Blessed Mother. As you know, this is one of the Mysteries of the Rosary. Each Mystery of the Rosary allows us to contemplate, through the eyes of our Lady, the Life, Passion, Death, and Resurrection of Jesus Christ. As we do so, it can be helpful to consider the fruit or virtue that a particular Mystery may foster in our lives. Below is a chart of these fruits, which can be particularly helpful if we are seeking to grow in a particular virtue, for we can meditate on the corresponding passage of Scripture and ask for heavenly aid and growth with that particular decade.
