The Mysteries of the Rosary trace key events in the Biblical life of Jesus Christ.
The Traditional Mysteries are divided into 3 groups of five each, the Joyful, Sorrowful, and Glorious Mysteries. The Joyful Mysteries were said Mondays and Thursdays, the Sorrowful Mysteries on Tuesdays and Fridays (and daily during Lent), and the Glorious Mysteries were said Wednesdays, Saturdays, and Sundays.
The new Mysteries of Light , or the Luminous Mysteries, form the fourth group of the Mysteries of the Rosary. Looking at the life of Jesus, the Mysteries of Light fall between the Joyful and Sorrowful mysteries. Pope John Paul II suggested in his Letter to move the second meditation of the Joyful mysteries to Saturday and to pray the Mysteries of Light on Thursday, but he respected the "rightful freedom in personal and community prayer." Sometimes we pray the traditional Mysteries from Monday through Saturday and pray the new Mysteries of Light on Sunday. Others pray 15 Mysteries of the Rosary at one sitting, going around the Rosary beads three times, choosing 3 of the 4 Mystery groups.
