Today is Thursday, a day to pray the luminous mysteries of the rosary.

I find these ones harder to remember, probably because I didn't learn them before. Often I have to review them beforehand and sometimes stop to look them up.

First Luminous Mystery - The Baptism of Jesus in the River Jordan
And a voice came from the heavens, saying, "This is my beloved Son, with whom I am well pleased."
Matthew 3:17

The Second Luminous Mystery - The Wedding at Cana, Christ Manifested
Jesus did this as the beginning of his signs in Cana in Galilee and so revealed his glory, and his disciples began to believe in him.
John 2:11

The Third Luminous Mystery - the Proclamation of the Kingdom of God
Jesus came to Galilee proclaiming the gospel of God: "This is the time of fulfillment. The kingdom of God is at hand. Repent, and believe in the gospel."
Mark 1:15

The Fourth Luminous Mystery
- The Transfiguration of Jesus
And he was transfigured before them; his face shone like the sun and his clothes became white as light.
Matthew 17:2

The Fifth Luminous Mystery
- The Last Supper, the Holy Eucharist
While they were eating, Jesus took bread, said the blessing, broke it, and giving it to his disciples said, "Take and eat; this is my body." Then he took a cup, gave thanks, and gave it to them, saying, "Drink from it, all of you, for this is my blood of the covenant, which will be shed on behalf of many for the forgiveness of sins. Matthew 26:26

I love praying the rosary. I often pray it in the evening on my days off and to and from work. I also pray it every night before going to bed. I also have prayed it with the Catholics at work who are actively dying. I believe it's important to help them pass along with their beliefs in place.

On a fluff note: Surgery is tomorrow. I am thinking it will be a peice of cake and on Saturday I will be back to my normal self. lol. I wish.
I will be needing some help around here for the next few days.

I also am trying to work things out to have a better relationship and friendship with the kids dad. I'm not sure what's going to happen but we can do it if we work together.
