The Rosary is not just a prayer, but a meditation on the life of Christ.  Throughout the centuries, the Rosary, the 'Gospel in miniature', has been a refuge for individuals and whole societies in times of crisis.  St. Dominic received the prayer of the Rosary in an apparition from the Blessed Virgin Mary in the year 1208.  In 2002, Pope John Paul II added five new mysteries, the Mysteries of Light, or the Luminous Mysteries.  These new mysteries focus on events in the public life of Christ.  A brief history of the Rosary plus all twenty mysteries of the Rosary; the Joyful, the Luminous, the Sorrowful, and the Glorious are presented.
