Which Mysteries are to be used for the Tuesday Rosary?

Sorrowful Mysteries of the Rosary

The Tuesday Rosary, also referred to as the Tuesday Mysteries as well as the Sorrowful Mysteries of the Rosary, are prayed on Tuesday. It contains five decades, or events, from scripture concerning the crucifixion of Jesus. These aid in building our faith and also in decreasing our sin.  There are opening prayers, prayers following each decade, and closing prayers.  Together, these prayers and decades make up the world’s most popular prayer and is said millions of times everyday.  

A suggestion …

Pray the Rosary early in the morning before you start your day.  Why pray it at the end of the day after the day is over?

Read the scriptures out loud. Don’t just announce the decade, but read the scriptures to accompany the prayers. 

Additionally, if a primer on Rosary Beads is needed, one is available here.

Why pray the Tuesday Rosary?

In 2012, I began praying this prayer of my own accord, which changed my life completely. Its power is real, so I wish to get as many people as I can to use this prayer daily as I have done, regardless of religious affiliation. I have had tremendous spiritual experiences that came at this time and were beyond anything I could have imagined. I believe these experiences have happened to me because of my devotion to prayer and the Rosary (although I do not think that devotion and prayer guarantee experiences, as I have had, will happen to everyone). My Catholic Conversion occurred in 2019, something I had no desire to do before.

It is my intention for people to pray the Rosary frequently so they might live life more abundantly, as I have had.

A Request

O My Dearest Mother Mary, behold me your child in prayer at your feet. Accept this Holy Rosary, which I offer you in accordance with your requests at Fatima, as a proof of my tender love for you, for the intentions of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, in atonement for the offenses committed against your Immaculate Heart, and for this special favor which I humbly request in This Rosary. 

(Mention your request here)

I beg you to present my petition to your Divine Son. I ask it for the greater glory, of GOD, for your honor, and the good of all Souls. If you will pray for me, I cannot be refused.  I know, dearest Mother, that you want me to seek GOD’s Holy Will concerning my request. If what I ask for should not be granted, pray that I may receive that which will be of greater benefit to my soul. Sweet heart of Mary be my Salvation, Amen.

In the Name of the Father

In the Name Of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.  (As you say this, with your right hand touch your forehead when you say Father, touch your breastbone when you say Son, touch your left shoulder when you say Holy, and touch your right shoulder when you say Spirit.)

Apostle's Creed

I believe in God, the Father Almighty, Creator of heaven and earth; and in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord; Who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried. He descended into hell; the third day He arose again from the dead. He ascended into heaven, and sits at the right hand of God, the Father Almighty; from thence He shall come to judge the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Holy Catholic Church, the communion of Saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body and life everlasting.  Amen.

Our Father

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name; Thy kingdom come; Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation; but deliver us from evil. Amen

Hail Mary

Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee; blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death. Amen. 

Glory Be

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit. As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.   

Fatima Prayer

“O my Jesus, forgive us our sins, save us from the fires of hell, lead all souls to Heaven, especially those who have most need of your mercy.”

Salve Regina

Hail, holy Queen, Mother of Mercy! our life, our sweetness, and our hope! To thee do we cry, poor banished children of Eve; to thee do we send up our sighs, mourning and weeping in this valley, of tears. Turn, then, most gracious Advocate, thine eyes of mercy toward us; and after this our exile show unto us the blessed fruit of thy womb, Jesus; O clement, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary.   

Pray for us, O Holy Mother of God, that we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.  

Fatima Prayer # 2

“My God, I believe, I adore, I hope, and I love You. I beg pardon of You for those who do not believe, do not adore, do not hope, and do not love You.”  

What are Scripturally-based Rosaries?

Scripturally-based Rosaries are Rosaries where the Scriptures are read, usually aloud.  I do it this way everytime I pray the Rosary because I feel like it is more complete and I get more out of it. It is my personal preference.

Any Rosary, whether it be the Tuesday Rosary or what have you, can be said scripturally, it just takes longer.  Where I attend Mass, the mystery titles are announced for the sake of time and then the prayers follow. It takes roughly twenty minutes to complete.  The longer version, where all scriptures are read, takes me between forty and forty-five minutes to complete.  

For me personally, the longer route is the way to go.

Five Decades

Agony in the Garden

The Agony in the Garden -Sorrowful Mysteries
Christ in the Garden of Gethsemane - Paolo Veronese - 1583-1584
Luke 22: 39-46

And going out, he went, according to his custom, to the mount of Olives. And his disciples also followed him.

And when he was come to the place, he said to them: Pray, lest ye enter into temptation.

And he was withdrawn away from them a stone’s cast; and kneeling down, he prayed, Saying: Father, if thou wilt, remove this chalice from me: but yet not my will, but thine be done.

And there appeared to him an angel from heaven, strengthening him. And being in an agony, he prayed the longer.

And his sweat became as drops of blood, trickling down upon the ground.

And when he rose up from prayer, and was come to his disciples, he found them sleeping for sorrow.

And he said to them: Why sleep you? arise, pray, lest you enter into temptation.

Scourging at the Pillar

The Scourging at the Pillar - Sorrowful Mysteries of the Rosary
Christ Before Pilate -Jacopo Tintoretto - 1556-1557
Matthew 27: 11-26

And Jesus stood before the governor, and the governor asked him, saying: Art thou the king of the Jews? Jesus saith to him: Thou sayest it.

And when he was accused by the chief priests and ancients, he answered nothing.

Then Pilate saith to him: Dost not thou hear how great testimonies they allege against thee?

And he answered him to never a word; so that the governor wondered exceedingly.

Now upon the solemn day the governor was accustomed to release to the people one prisoner, whom they would.

And he had then a notorious prisoner, that was called Barabbas.

They therefore being gathered together, Pilate said: Whom will you that I release to you, Barabbas, or Jesus that is called Christ?

For he knew that for envy they had delivered him.

And as he was sitting in the place of judgment, his wife sent to him, saying: Have thou nothing to do with that just man; for I have suffered many things this day in a dream because of him.

But the chief priests and ancients persuaded the people, that they should ask for Barabbas, and take Jesus away.

And the governor answering, said to them: Whether will you of the two to be released unto you? But they said, Barabbas.

Pilate saith to them: What shall I do then with Jesus that is called Christ? They say all: Let him be crucified.

The governor said to them: Why, what evil hath he done? But they cried out the more, saying: Let him be crucified.

And Pilate seeing that he prevailed nothing, but that rather a tumult was made; taking water washed his hands before the people, saying: I am innocent of the blood of this just man; look you to it.

And the whole people answering, said: His blood be upon us and our children.

Then he released to them Barabbas, and having scourged Jesus, delivered him unto them to be crucified.

Crowning with Thorns

Matthew 27:27-31

Then the soldiers of the governor taking Jesus into the hall, gathered together unto him the whole band;

And stripping him, they put a scarlet cloak about him.

And platting a crown of thorns, they put it upon his head, and a reed in his right hand. And bowing the knee before him, they mocked him, saying: Hail, king of the Jews.

And spitting upon him, they took the reed, and struck his head.

And after they had mocked him, they took off the cloak from him, and put on him his own garments, and led him away to crucify him.

Carrying the Cross

The Carrying of the Cross - Sorrowful Mysteries
Carrying the Cross - Giovanni Battista Tiepolo - 1738
Luke 23: 26-33

And as they led him away, they laid hold of one Simon of Cyrene, coming from the country; and they laid the cross on him to carry after Jesus.

And there followed him a great multitude of people, and of women, who bewailed and lamented him.

But Jesus turning to them, said: Daughters of Jerusalem, weep not over me; but weep for yourselves, and for your children.

For behold, the days shall come, wherein they will say: Blessed are the barren, and the wombs that have not borne, and the paps that have not given suck.

Then shall they begin to say to the mountains: Fall upon us; and to the hills: Cover us.

For if in the green wood they do these things, what shall be done in the dry?

And there were also two other malefactors led with him to be put to death.

And when they were come to the place which is called Calvary, they crucified him there; and the robbers, one on the right hand, and the other on the left.

Additional Prayers to the Tuesday Rosary

Dolorosa - Our Lady of Sorrows
Dolorosa - Bartolome Esteban Murillo - 1660

From time to time, I like to append a couple of prayers to the Tuesday Rosary to Our Lady. One is a prayer taken from the Litany of Our Lady of Sorrows.  The other is the Memorare.

From Our Lady of Sorrows

Imprint, O Lady, thy wounds upon my heart, that I may read therein sorrow and love: sorrow, to endure every sorrow for thee; love, to despise every love for thee.

From Our Lady of Sorrows

Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary,
that never was it known that anyone who fled to your protection,
implored your help, or sought your intercession,
was left unaided.
Inspired by this confidence,
I fly unto you, O Virgin of virgins, my Mother.
To you do I come, before you I stand, sinful and sorrowful.
O Mother of the Word Incarnate,
despise not my petitions,
but in your mercy, hear and answer me.
Amen.
