Pope John Paul II’s purpose in introducing the Luminous Mysteries of the Rosary was to encourage meditation on those events of Jesus’ public life that were missing from the more familiar and traditional mysteries. This book of reflections on each of the Mysteries of Light skillfully blends texts from Old and New Testaments, as well as the author’s extensive experience of pilgrimage in the Holy Land, the book helps us reflect on the events of the life of Jesus and how those mysteries of his life connect with our own. With a Foreword from Cardinal George Pell.
