Rosary reflections - GIFT TO GOD

 

Sorrowful Mysteries

(Tuesday and Friday)

 

The Agony in the Garden

Left alone in His suffering. A natural, human fear says: don’t do it, don’t take it, “Father, take from me this…”; the divine love for people says: “not my but your will be done”, let it happen according to Your word. May our acceptance of God’s will be a gift to God.

 

The Scourging at the Pillar

He is innocent, yet accepting the unjust punishment. Every part of His body is aching and bleeding. Each one of my sins adds more pain and more bleeding to Jesus. His scourging did not happen a long time ago, it is happening now. May our sinless life be a gift to God.

 

The Crowning with Thorns

Jesus’ head was crowned with thorns which pierced His skull. Our head is full of thoughts. Many of them are wrong and evil thoughts. They are like the thorns in Jesus’ head. May our pure thoughts be a consolation to Jesus and a gift to God.

 

The Carrying of the Cross

Jesus accepts the cross with love because it is an instrument of our salvation. Many of our duties and works are as heavy as the cross. Often it happens that we want to give up. May our faithfulness in carrying our “heavy load” be a gift to God.

 

 

The Crucifixion

Being nailed to the cross, Jesus is dying in disgrace. Many of passing by people shook their heads, turning off their eyes. Are we ashamed of the Cross? Do we show respect to the Cross? May our true love for the Cross be a gift to God.
