sorrowful-promo-billboardMeditate on the sorrowful mysteries of the rosary
illuminated by sixty works of sacred art.

The Sorrowful Mysteries illuminates the sorrowful mysteries of the rosary in sixty works of sacred art—one for each bead—to help readers pray the rosary more meditatively:

  • Each two-page spread includes a work of art on one page, and the words of the appropriate prayer on the opposite page.
  • A string of “beads” at the bottom of the text marks progress through each decade.
  • Each decade opens with a beautiful Scripture-based introduction to one of the sorrowful mysteries (the Agony in the Garden, the Scourging at the Pillar, the Crowning with Thorns, the Carrying of the Cross, and the Crucifixion) as well as suggested prayer intentions.

The Sorrowful Mysteries is part of The Illuminated Rosary series, which is designed especially for children just learning to pray the rosary. Younger children can turn the page after each Our Father and Hail Mary, and older children can use the text on each page to help them lead the rosary and memorize the prayers. Please note that some images in The Sorrowful Mysteries may be disturbing to children; adults considering purchasing The Sorrowful Mysteries should consider whether the images are appropriate for children using the book.

The pages of The Sorrowful Mysteries feature the work of classical artists ranging from anonymous manuscript illuminators to such greats as Caravaggio, Antonio Ciseri, Fra Angelico, Peter Paul Rubens, James Tissot, and more. Selected works by contemporary artists round out The Sorrowful Mysteries, inviting readers to a deeper appreciation of the mysteries of the life of Christ.

The Sorrowful Mysteries is part of The Illuminated Rosary series.
