A church window depicts Jesus giving his Sermon on the Mount, which begins with the Beatitudes. Christ’s announcement of the kingdom of God with the invitation to conversion is the third theme of the five new “mysteries of light” for praying the rosary. Pope John Paul II was scheduled to announce the new mysteries Oct. 16 in his apostolic letter “Rosarium Virginis Mariae,” or “The Rosary of the Virgin Mary.” (CNS photo from Crosiers) (Oct. 15, 2002) See ROSARY-MYSTERIES Oct. 14, 2002 and story to come.
