A church window depicts Jesus and his apostles at the Last Supper. The institution of the Eucharist at the Last Supper as the sacramental expression of the paschal mystery is the fifth 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.
