The New Sacred Mysteries Rosary
For centuries the fifteen decade rosary was used by many throughout the Catholic Church. It was the rosary used to recite the fifteen mysteries of the Blessed Virgin Mary. In 2002, Pope John Paul II proposed that five more decades be added to the rosary. The Luminous Mysteries, or Mysteries of Light were added to the Holy Rosary of Sacred Mysteries.
