The Sorrowful Mysteries

Well done to Dhilan, Darragh and William who planned, prepared and delivered a lovely prayer service to the rest of Year 6 and their prayer friends in Reception.

They focused on the first sorrowful mystery: The Agony in the Garden.

“Then Jesus went with them to a place called Gethsemane, and he said to his disciples, ‘Sit here, while I go yonder and pray.” (Mt 26:36-39)

This prayer service taught us all that the Sorrowful Mysteries cover the events of Holy Thursday, after the Last Supper, through the Crucifixion of Christ on Good Friday,  Each mystery is associated with a particular fruit, or virtue, which is illustrated by the actions of Christ and Mary in the event commemorated by that mystery. While meditating on the mysteries, we also pray for those fruits or virtues. The virtue most commonly associated with the mystery of the Agony in the Garden is acceptance of Gods will.
