Our Lady of the Rosary

Standard

Today is the Feast Day of Our Lady of the Rosary. It is commemorated each year on October 7th and many churches have special rosary events. Many of these happen all through the year but they have a special significance during October and May.

I personally find great comfort in praying the rosary. I participate in a weekly recitation every Monday with my Cursillo group and I’ve been part of a Living Rosary at my church for a few years now. They’re starting it again post-pandemic this month.

Since today is Thursday, the mysteries of the Holy Rosary recited are the LUMINOUS MYSTERIES.

1. The Baptism of the Lord

2. The Wedding at Cana

3. Proclamation of the Kingdom

4. The Transfiguration

5. Institution of the Eucharist

Visit How to Pray the Rosary on the Vatican’s website for prayers and directions if you’re not familiar with praying the rosary.

I enjoy drawing the rosary. I wanted to do this as part of my art journaling classes during the off weeks. I have some new Sharpie markers and the blues were reaching out to me to be used for this particular project.

I laid out my rosary beads on my sketchbook paper. It may be difficult to tell – the beads are a deep emerald green.
