The destruction of my neighborhood, way of life

The Destruction of My Neighborhood
“WE THE PEOPLE”

What is happening to my neighborhood and its people is now seen for what it is, EVIL. There’s been an orchestrated effort for many years now to get me out of here because certain nefarious persons knew I was the tiger of the neighborhood who would put up a fight or resist their plan and if they got me to take their lousy offer to move or, in essence, get the hell out of their way, then most others around me would fall in line with their nefarious plans to dominate the community with a fake home or property acquisition program.  This so called program neither takes into account the constitutional rights nor the lives of the individuals that call this neighborhood home. They are using tactics and an approach that can be considered a form of assault or warfare upon me, and other people here along with the natural environment.  The trees, animals and fauna are being stripped away like so much chaff, which diminishes the value and integrity of the neighborhood, thereby disrespecting the lives of its people.  So one could say the lives of certain people are being stripped away as well! I’m one of those people and I know for a fact that my life, liberty and pursuit of any happiness that I’ve had here in my neighborhood for my entire life has been cheapened, discounted, marginalized, threatened and slowly but surely destroyed by this attack.

The airport people, otherwise known as RIAC [Rhode Island Airport Corporation], even have an employee that is an Army West Point grad who is one of their main players in this developing story, who obviously knows much more than he lets on about the plan or tactics that were used, are now being used and will be used to attack me along with this community to accomplish their goal.  This onslaught has been bought and paid for by the people of my community and sold by the media, who are puppets for these same nefarious individuals that want me and others gone.  Just like the over 600 trees that once gave the area life-sustaining oxygen that have been stripped from the Earth here recently, they also want to strip away human lives along with a way of life that interferes with their nefarious plans.

What is happening here is not unlike Arthur Miller’s the Crucible in tone and plot, along with similar strategies or tactics that were also used in the Tennessee Valley Authority project and story, which we know from the historical account that it too involved stripping away the lives of simple everyday people for and by the powerful in our society because they were in the way.

I started out in my dissertation here by saying this is EVIL, and that is absolutely true. The pope in Rome has explained in many of his writings that we now live in a “culture of death,” and this activity that is occurring here in my neighborhood is a prime example of that kind of corrupted, destructive culture we now live in because the people continue to allow the wrong individuals to tell the rest of us how we have to live or get out of the way!

I woke up in the middle of the night today because of this harsh ugly treatment my life was and is being subjected to, then suddenly I had an epiphany of how I’ve been lied to or given a smoke and mirrors explanation whenever I called to ask questions about what they are doing here by this certain employee of RIAC yesterday.  He’s been the go-between for me and actually the only person that will give me the time of day when I seek answers, but now I realize his job has been to keep me at bay as they, the enemies of the community, go about their nefarious plan.  They want nothing more than to extract me and others from this area any which way they can, as long as it keeps the cost to a bare minimum for them, no matter how costly or unfortunate it will be for me and the community.  My life is meaningless and valueless to those same nefarious persons that have their big agenda!  Well, God is going to trump them and their plans along with chastising each and every one of them when it is time!  It appears that, meanwhile, they are being allowed to show themselves for what they are and take their ugly plans to the limit, so they will eventually not only expose themselves for what they are but will convict themselves as well of all the crimes of which they are guilty!  Crimes against other people, nature, and God!

I also just realized that I’m not going to get anywhere with my concerns by talking to my local politicians, media and others here in the community, but I will rather need to seek out divine intervention!  This fact does give me some solace to know that we, the people, will always be heard and considered as human beings with lives of value and purpose that can ultimately never be discounted by the man-made world, but will rather be held up as having great significance within the Creator’s most high and ultimate plan.

PS It’s becoming quite apparent that this entire unnecessary project was nothing more than a group of Crony Capitalists scheme to ingratiate themselves at the expense of the Tax Payer and the ruined lives along with a piece of the environment, which I will have much more detail and evidence to write about in the near future.

Sexuality and Humanity

Does “Sex Rule” our lives making us false idol worshipers?

To a large extent absolutely!  You’ve heard the expression SEX SELLS, and that is how many entities in corporate America have been alluring and selling product to consumers since before I was around and over the years I’ve seen that manipulation increase exponentially via printed, visual and pop culture mediums to an actual sickening level when you come right down to it!  People are being bombarded and titillated with very powerful psychological messages that grab them where it counts in our basic instinctual motivating animal sensory behaviors that are part of our basic human drives to procreate and continue as a species of temporal physical beings; which leads them the mass manipulators to the ultimate prize “of reaching into our pockets,” and getting our money!  But that is only a part of us and not the part that we should be allowing to dominate our outward or inward behavior toward one another.

Someone like the former Hugh Hefner built up a cottage industry over the years whipping into shape an “empire” worth billions all revolving on “exploitation of female sexuality and sensuality” that got many a man sucked in as a continuous paying customer to be mesmerized by the physical allures of a woman’s body.  This rapidly expanded the pornographic industry to a shocking and really unbelievable level as the modes of delivery went from primarily the printed page in magazines decades ago, which then rapidly grew to the present digital age technology where anything one might imagine is at the fingertips on demand making it far too easy for anyone to be tempted and actually become poisoned by the powerful intoxication of desire and pleasure effects that are coaxed within the minds pleasure center by a myriad of lust adventures played out in the current available imagery.  In a sense it’s getting nearly impossible to escape this tool of exploitation being deployed upon a “sheeple” public which has grown even way more permissive and secular over the last several decades!  What I’m saying here is the “cat is out of the bag” or the modern “Pandora’s Box” has ben opened; making for a huge problem or even mess in our culture and civilization as a whole, feeding right into all manner of depravity and actual criminal intent or behavior of the very twisted and sick minded that will even be more encouraged to be violent.  Priorities have been allowed to disintegrate making this a multifaceted problem of great consequence in our modern era!  Because of this selling tool human sexuality is now being used and abused daily!  Those without discipline or who are too weak to resist become slaves to this monster or machine of manipulation!

All of this that I speak of has led to this explosion of twisted thinking and even radical departure from what was always considered to be proper appropriate behavior with regard to human sexuality; not just based on religious or philosophical thinking but even purely from a common sense standpoint!  Now the time of anything goes has arrived and is it any wonder while people have been turned into slaves being led by their noses to do this or that with the narrative being as long as you feel good that is all that matters type of mantra being deployed these days!  A very sick world is what we see!  People thinking they are fine doing what they do now with even gender bending and they most certainly are not fine at all.  The decline of humanity and civilization looks like THIS!

So then, YES Sex Sells, and many people will even sell their own souls!

A Post Script thought of in referring to a comment on a similar post.

I noticed just now one of your commenters said God is very merciful and accepts us all with love, which is bending the truth of what He has taught humanity and is very misleading in that; God has stated clearly in His word to us that in the end time there will be all manner of perversion and that is what this Pride nonsense is, all a selfish twisting of the gifts God gave humanity, using them to please one’s self and do his or her own thing!  Abusing what God intended only for loving couples to share in procreation and making a family or more “children of God” has now become I can love who or “what” I want and get all the pleasure doing it that I want!  Me, me, me is all this is, and these people have lost their way but by intentionally choosing these twisted worshiping behaviors over truly loving God and His plan for Humanity!  They in essence say we know better than God!

Deception abounds and in no way will God accept that type of thinking or behavior nor the manner of perversion that is being propagated; as it is clearly what Satan did in his challenge of God’s absolute authority in all things!  This is all work of the Devil.  Yes God loves us but demands that if we Love Him back it will be reflected in our abiding in His teachings and not the worlds or Satan’s!  Nowhere in Scripture or even in sensible logic does it say that two men or two women can do as they please using their sexuality to pleasure one another and that will be just beautiful to God and fit right into His plans for we His children!  Sin and corrupting of what God intended is not part of the plan.

Rebellious children are in trouble and homosexuality or gender bending are learned behaviors; and there is nothing natural or befitting in them when it comes down to how humans should behave and live!

Remember End Times, the signs will be quite evident! “The Blind Leading the Blind!”

EYE of the TIGER

My thoughts to share with a Blogger, a Commenter and all of You!

Yes indeed fine Lady, bravo for this strong and vital message!  A noteworthy attempt to keep in mind the “eye of the tiger,” as I do realize even though I know I’m aware of what’s happened to our country and the world, that it is far too easy to be diverted or distracted from the task at hand or the imperative to not only be aware but to be an active positive force in this battle to keep what is most important in focus 24/7; because we are all indeed in a battle or fight to the finish to turn humanity into a putrid sewer of debauchery and sin or to rise above the base, vain and egocentric malaise of being another captive fool for the NWO machine and freakish left that is in place to prepare the human race to be enslaved by Satan!

Every minute of every day the conscious and subconscious thought processes are being bombarded with mixed messages and outright lies to mold minds and the masses to react like a school of fish to whatever stimuli are introduced, in order to maintain a captive audience while in a true sense creating a herd of human cattle or as many refer to such animals in the current vernacular SHEEPLE; to be driven off a cliff or whatever the anti-Christ will desire to do with them.

I truly appreciate those individuals like you who keep the imperative in focus and in my face, I too am just an imperfect sinner who needs the light of God and His truth made stronger or encouraged while all the clamor or background noise increases.  And, simply put; I admit I can always use a kick in the ass!

Amen.

Mirror That Kind of Giving That Jesus Christ Gave to Us

My thoughts to share with a Blogger, a Commenter and all of You!

Thank you Blogger, very interesting and timely piece you wrote here in my eyes.  I want to speak to you in particular commenters especially the one who saw the Bloggers story in a negative way, and to all others who care to listen to my perspective.

You’re dead wrong and trying to soft sell Abortion and that the Left has no agenda which they most assuredly do, which is to promote radical and liberal things and squelch conservative traditional values and living.  In many cases so they can be victorious in telling the world that they can do as they please even if it doesn’t fit into the conformity of thousands of years of civilized behavior or modus operandi and accepted culture that is not only based on religious context but on common sense in your face reality!  This is something the fallen angels did when they transgressed God putting them above God!  All this gender bending and saying be what you want to be is straight from hell and most sane truly honest people know that.  You are born male or female and that is it, and sure there are rare aberrations but that is an extreme minuscule number of humans out of the billions that have walked this planet.  The radical left would want the status-quo to be the minuscule minority that should be leading the way for all human standards and behavior or a justification to bend reality and say that it is fine to change what sex you are!  Poppycock and stupidity have been allowed to take the driver’s seat because of very wrong and bad court decisions having been made over the years and a cultural shift was allowed to exacerbate becoming what we have now a diametrically opposed confrontation in world populations that’s grown into a feud of unrelenting attacks upon each other or the opposition!  This should never have been allowed to happen but it did and I say because too many humans have put themselves above God and what life is and should be; “radical thinking gone amuck and out of control,” just what the evil one wants us to be doing, killing innocent babies and wanting to do the same to each other.

Infamous abortion doctor Kermit Gosnell had no problem with abortion just like Joe Biden a professed Catholic said he has no problem with same sex marriage during Obama’s 2nd Presidential campaign!  Many of Gosnell’s patients were “given anesthesia by untrained assistants; patient’s died on the operating table from an anesthesia overdose; abortions were performed on babies older than 24 weeks; and some babies were delivered alive, after which Dr. Gosnell cut their spinal cord with scissors.”
This by a doctor who did take an oath to “do no harm” obviously did every day and each time he terminated a pregnancy and that is the “heart of the matter” when life is life, and who if anyone can take a life and for what reason.  In war we must do or die its kill or be killed and sadly the human race hasn’t found a way to prevent such war killing or major out of control disputes with each other!  Now we have this “abortion war” that was allowed to grow to a point of having a global impact creating industrialized wholesale abortion, most of which would not be happening if humans found a way and inner strength to behave in a proper responsible manner; to leave sexual relations to a devout love relationship and procreation between couples in order to produce a family and wanting to have a child together.  In other words living morally, not like pigs or self-indulgent lustful flesh beings which pop culture and the like are promoting!

Similarly, we might say that priests are working directly for God Almighty and take vows of obedience to Him and when ordained as a priest they must stay above sin or reproach which is a tall order and big boots to fill!  This Blogger is seeing that objective clearly and understands the great commitment these men have made and how much they have to love God our Creator to do such a thing, and they surely deserve respect and appreciation for doing so, just like any great doctor who fulfills his duty to “do no harm” and works every day to save life, any life, even that of a criminal shot in a gang war or any other man-made sinful behavior!  We are all wreaking with sin inherently just by virtue of being human and imperfect beings at this stage of existence!  God promised there is much more to come beyond this life and will give us that gift of Eternal Life if we will follow some simple requests of Him!  Of course some will fail big time in this life and that is sad, and even priests fail at times or ministers, soccer coaches and gymnastic teachers or those failed individuals in any other group where there is always going to be opportunity for sin and failing to enter the equation.  Instead of all people now recognizing the fact that we are in such an important battle of Good vs. Evil and calming the turmoil while we peacefully face the facts and reality as to what has gone wrong and what is continuing to run us off the precipice; we instead as an imperfect planet of humans seem to be more interested in perpetuating the clamor and fight to win out or beat the opposition, over really fixing and curing disease that riddles us.

The Blogger graciously pointed out a great good that took place, a pure example of humility and love that Jesus Christ expressed to all of us and how that is what all of us should strive to do each and every day, the “oath of the living” should always be to do that, and we’re obligated to try OUR BEST; if we fail, God will understand but we MUST try our best, not be fakers and liars!  That is called true FORGIVENESS!  We must all forgive each other and show that we will try our best to do that in all situations, but that is another tall order, nonetheless we must try; or will we be deserving and given forgiveness when it will really count standing before our maker?  No; we will not and God has made that clear through His example as Jesus Christ who took all the sins and filth of this world that any and all humans have or will commit and took that unbelievable burden upon his own spirit to suffer its “full consequence,” an act mind you that obviously only God could perform; and all because He loves us more than we can imagine; allowing us all an opportunity to be FORGIVEN outright for any sin, and enter the Kingdom of God as pristine as the driven snow, His Heavenly Paradise for Eternity if we will hold up our end of this most precious “Everlasting Covenant “with Humanity!  We must try very hard and with his grace and Holy Spirit the Comforter that we can depend on, this burden and difficult task can be made easier to carry as our own personal cross in our personal relationship with Him; but we must carry that cross or we will never succeed.

I hope anyone reading my words will be inspired by God as I am to find Him in their hearts and act upon His will to do the right thing, be strong in his overpowering Love for you and submit to Him, He will never let you down!  I did go to the Ascension Mass last night and when I got home I found the email notice about this Blogger’s new Blog Post and I was drawn to the fact that she does the Rosary which is a practice I wrote about recently for Easter and also that her rosary is made with wooden beads.  I have the same type of rosary which I wore around my neck last night in Mass, and this rosary was given to me by a special good servant woman of God, who was in a hermitage for many years serving God there while of course helping the nuns. She had thought of becoming a nun herself but eventually her path was shown to her and it was to do as she did.  She got this rosary at Medugorje which was blessed with Holy water there.  She had gone there for a healing and when she got back home her illness got worse in time.  She remained faithful and continued doing her rosary each day then when rushed to the hospital she had her rosary with her and died on the operating table.  But she was revived and was shortly after cured miraculously.  Around this time I had just been through a horrible industrial chemical inhalation injury and was trying to deal with the difficulties of fighting the damage and illness that was caused by that injury, along with having to finally fire my lawyer and take charge of my own workers compensation case in the court system.  I used to see this lady in church many times and one Sunday she had told me all about her history with the nuns and then her illness.  It turned out that I too had the same endocrine illness when I was very young and was eventually cured not by doctors but by God I believe, because just as mysteriously did I too become afflicted with this disease I got well again just as mysteriously, because I believe that I was tested and God wanted me to move on from that difficulty to the many more that were coming my way up the road; and all to serve Him and His will for me just like all of you should. Again, on another Sunday I was in church and this nice lady came over to me after the mass and said, “here this is for you my dear friend,” and placed her “precious rosary in my hands.” I’m crying now telling you all this, because I try to keep most of my problems and pains to myself, but this was one issue where I felt I need to forget myself and give it all to the Glory of God and thus to all of you out there to hopefully make a difference for any of you who will see the light of God and follow Him.  I do it out of love for God; I want no pat on the back, nothing.

Understand please; it takes a lot to open up to virtual strangers for me about such personal things that are so deep in my heart and soul.  That was the rosary I had with me in mass last evening, and I had it with me in court over an extended period while I fought my way through the legal system Pro Se, where eventually the judge at the closure of my case said I did as good a job if not better than any attorney could have.  See with God you are going to make it; as He gives to us we must “mirror that kind of giving,” because, “that is the point this Blogger made here;” you have to understand and don’t be self-centered or weak in your sight.

Look beyond yourself, far beyond; to where God has prepared a most unbelievable place for you to be with Him and all that is good forever. Amen

Memorial Day Contemplation of a Patriot

Dick I’ll tell you what I think, it’s the same old shit of trying to lure voters; with giveaways to those voters who love something for nothing!  The problem with this concept is there is no free ride or LUNCH!  Someone must always pay the piper; so these “commie scum” in our political system use all the alluring rhetoric and tricks they can to “suck the suckers” in, but once you are in, they will sink in the hook and bleed you dry for all the worthless shit to them that you are!  This is the theme of totalitarianism and NWO of “NO POWER TO THE PEOPLE” but only to the PARTY; all those on the INSIDE! GET IT!!! Lots of imbeciles in this country these days that would give away our “Constitutional Rights and Freedom of the People” for a few trinkets or a pat on the back as they kick your ass down the stairs! Never-mind fighting the foreign enemies of America we have them right inside our borders, like Pelosi, Schumer, Schiff, Feinstein, Warren, Harris, Booker, Bernie, Biden and all the rest!  If any of you are stupid enough to buy into their lies then they will strip you naked and use you as a whipping post for the remainder of your miserable lives!

And Robert to what you said about the Dems,  I agree with both of you but your 70% is wrong, ANY politician that is part of the Dem party at this point is guilty as the darkest sin by just being a member and supportive of the policies or lack of morality it processes!  Every last one of them should be summarily EXECUTED!

And I pray that you are 100% correct about what the people will do, because that is the only last hope for America and all True American Patriots that they will have to rise up and do the People’s work and kill them all!  The famous movie line written by screenwriter Frank Pierson for the film “Cool Hand Luke,” ” What we have here is a failure to communicate” applies here, and instead of a line in just a movie its meaning has come to roost upon a whole Nation as not only “a failure to communicate” but, “I say as an actual Revolution in the making!”

Some wild idea some of you have, this socialism or communism or any other variation of name you can use!  You’re talking about something for nothing nonsense!  There is no such thing, there is only survival and there is no real economic equality in this world just like not all people are born with good brains!  Do you see the Royal families giving up all their stolen wealth?  There is no panacea, all must take life on and do their best to get to where they want to go, no government should be a part of that!  The People should be their own individual Government and the bureaucracy only a servant to the People not the other way around which is what we have now all over the planet!  NWO!

The biased media manipulation along with the wicked Dem party’s non-stop harassment of a duly elected President with all of their traitorous obstruction and interference in conducting the business of the People!  That’s right all you progressive, socialists/communists don’t see those FACTS only that the Dem party “never accepted the results of the election” and have tried to stage a diversionary coup d’état!

A Fundamental Right of Freedom

In discussing True Democracy that our forefathers brought forth upon this Great Nation under God, this is what I had to say as a thankful American Citizen!

Mr. Smith, Yes so true what you stated above; “The People’s Right To Keep and Bear Arms SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED.”  And I add in conjunction our forefathers were speaking to the truth that the “people’s militia” as being “well-structured and synchronized” or (regulated) as in always prepared for “any contingency,” in order to “PRESERVE” that “FUNDAMENTAL RIGHT!”

This is what some of the loud mouths that are so anti-gun and apparently can’t think coming in from LEFT field and parts unknown fail to realize!

That without this BOTTOM-LINE “Right of the People,” “Liberty and a True Democracy of The People” cannot Stand!

The Second Amendment is our only ace in the hole to maintain any real freedoms from a government that can quickly become the enemy of the people as we are witnessing by what we see happening in Washington since 2008.

BEEUTIFUL BEES

I wanted to mention I have grown to appreciate bees much more over the last 15 years when in my travels and around where I have my home bees began being impacted very negatively by mankind and started to diminish drastically.  There are debates going on and numbers get manipulated but when considering the entire world food crop for human consumption one expert seems to be talking more realistic when he said;  “Assuming that the major fruits, nuts and vegetables benefit from pollination, and that most animal food is from flowering plants requiring seed production (eg: alfalfa), that makes for about 55% of world food production benefiting from bees.”

But it is true that 90% of the fruits and nuts along with certain vegetables we enjoy here in America are pollinated most extensively by bees!  Not to mention flowers and shrubbery; what a massive loss and problem it would be if bees disappear; we will see and feel greatly the consequences of that catastrophe if it occurs.

So, needless to say “I Love Bees!” LOL!  Now I’m going to have breakfast a mixture of muesli, oat bran and rolled oats cereals with WALNUTS, BLUEBERRIES, STRAWBERRIES, BANANAS and HONEY; all the items in caps thanks to the BEE!  And, you know the value of those fruits and nuts in a diet to keep us healthy and ward off disease.  Take care and “Have a BEEUTIFUL Day!”   🐝

The Rosary Devotional Meditation

I did some research on the matter of the Rosary and its importance to some Catholics!  It is only in a sense a tool to focus on the praying or speaking to God because it utilizes all the senses and humans being easily distracted creatures of habit that isn’t such a bad idea.  Portions of the Rosary repetition are again directing the person praying it to focus attention on the Divine Mysteries in a devout manner not for the sake of repetitive pagan customs as some have eluded such as the case implied where the King James Version of the Bible speaks to the matter regarding such practices by Christians as being persons “thinking by repeating themselves will be better heard by God.”  Catholics are not doing that if they know what they are doing and why these practices evolved right from Scriptures from the Apostles who wrote those divinely inspired words from God.

I spoke to a priest I know and he did explain to me how saying a Rosary is a devoted form of prayer which is fully accepted and prescribed by the Church, and as I already mentioned how distraction can be our enemy which is another way of putting it in my mind, because I know I do get distracted praying in my usual manner and the Rosary has the quality of focus on communion with Jesus Christ and all of the Divine Mysteries helps any of the countless faithful to overcome that break in focus and devotional humble prayer to God!

A man I met through a former career in the workplace that I got to know very well when I had that government job a while back was a devout Catholic and a Chemist while his wife a microbiologist.  He told me how they both would do Rosaries every day; these people were the real deal being truly devout and the guy actually went to Seminary some years prior to his government position studying theology and also was in a monastery for quite some time just before he was to take his vows to become an ordained priest; but he had an epiphany and God directed him to another mission in life!  This man gave me the pocket size version one day at work just before the time that some bad people moved against me and my troubles began when a serious injury occurred.  The book is “My Imitation of Christ.”  This book by Thomas Kempis has been the second most popular spiritual book only second to the “Sacred Scriptures.”  The first chapter states, “That to follow Christ let it be our chief study to mediate on the life of Jesus Christ.”  It also says, “But it happeneth that many, by frequent hearing of Gospel, are very little affected because they have not the spirit of Christ.”  It goes on in that first chapter to explain that one could know all the Scriptures and still fall short of knowing Jesus Christ and making one’s life “conformable” to Him!  Therefore, I so far think that the Rosary is a tool to “conform” and be in such UN-distracted love and service to God that one is certainly in closer “communion with Christ” by means of the “Holy Spirit” when in a sense one relinquishes self from daily material life and all sensations allowing one to be free of worldly distractions, entering into deep communication with God through Jesus Christ while doing these prayers of the Rosary.  You and I can believe or know that if Jesus came in person right now and spoke to us of this praying of the Rosary, He wouldn’t find any fault in it at all if those doing it are sincerely doing what the stated intention of the devout Rosary practice in praying to God is about; and that anyone caught up in this “devotional meditating” a very intimate and personal thing, that it is surely being loving and faithful to Christ!

I’m sure there could be a long study and discussion of this subject by any of us to try speaking to it in truth as to its benefit or merit or possible fault if any!  I believe many things in this life that we humans do God searches out the heart to know the true intentions behind those actions and will judge accordingly!  But this is why I say doing rosaries would be better time spent for an old granny sitting at a slot machine all day which I have witnessed!  If anything is leading a person astray the latter surely does that in spades!   I was writing this and felt compelled to call the priest I admire the most and even can consider a true friend to say how I’m so moved by the Holy Spirit right now to be writing this and how being in “devout communion with God” is the most important thing we can do, as much and as often as we can, so that we walk with Jesus each day!  I hope we can find the truths we need to find, all of us who seek God’s will, as I am always open to that!

God Bless You and Yours, Brother in Christ Jesus,

Additionally: “The Rosary consists traditionally of three sets of five Mysteries, each Mystery being meditated on while reciting a decade (a set of ten) of Ave Marias. The 150 Ave Marias of the Rosary thus echo the 150 psalms. These Mysteries concern events of Jesus’ life during his childhood (Joyful Mysteries), Passion (Sorrowful Mysteries), and from his Resurrection onwards (Glorious Mysteries). Another set, the Luminous Mysteries, is of comparatively recent origin, having been proposed by Pope John Paul II in 2002. Each decade of Ave Marias is preceded by the Our Father (Pater Noster or The Lord’s Prayer) and followed by the Glory Be (Gloria Patri) (Doxology). The repetition of the fixed-language prayers assists recitation from the heart rather than the head. Pope Paul V said that “the Rosary is a treasure of graces … Even for those souls who pray without meditating, the simple act of taking the beads in hand to pray is already a remembrance of God – of the supernatural”.
