Philip Armstrong shows you how to use your own imagination plus some divine inspiration to create new mysteries that have personal meaning just for you.
The Rosary is meant to be a prayer that leads us to Christ and into union with God. If it only locks us into a meaningless circle of mechanically recited prayers, the Rosary is not achieving its purpose. And Mary would be the first one to tell us to find a better way to God.
We should feel comfortable allowing ourselves a certain flexibility with the Rosary, as the US Bishops noted in their 1973 pastoral letter, Behold Your Mother: Woman of Faith. “Besides the precise Rosary pattern long known to Catholics,” they write, “we can freely experiment. New sets of mysteries are possible.”
