Best Bible Verses for All the Mysteries of the Holy Rosary
Has someone ever asked you, “Where is that in the Bible?” Sometimes that comment can take us by surprise. Other times, we might be expecting it. When it comes to the Rosary, most of the events we meditate on as we pray are in the Bible. Reading these Bible passages as we pray the Rosary can help us focus more on Jesus and what He has done for us.
A Scriptural Rosary is when you read a Bible passage as you pray the Rosary. It is a beautiful way to pray the Rosary, helping to keep us grounded in the reality of Jesus’ birth, life, suffering, death, and resurrection.
Have you prayed the Rosary with Scripture before? If you have not, you are in for a treat. This post lists one or more Bible passages for each mystery of the Rosary. You can read each passage before the mystery (before praying the Our Father and the 10 Halil Mary prayers) or you can break up the passage and read it in sections as you pray the Hail Mary prayer during each mystery. It is up to you.
Here is a link to the post on the Rosary in case you need to have the prayers handy as you pray: How to pray the Rosary.
Although there is a specific set of Rosary Mysteries assigned to each day of the week, any Mystery can be prayed on any day.
