I saw a post which argues that we should “dump” the Luminous Mysteries of the Rosary proposed by St. John Paul II. The reflections were based in part on the writings of Bl. Bartolo Longo. I wrote some notes about the Luminous Mysteries in my Patristic Rosary Project (which I must return to one day).
I must admit that I never use the Luminous Mysteries.
Some people on the traditional side of things have an aversion to them that seems to be on the edge of strange. I remember one loony argument that, since Our Lady wants us to pray a third of the whole Rosary each day, if we added in the Luminous Mysteries we would be praying 66.6 Hail Marys… or something like that. Get it? See those evil sixes?
LET’S BE CLEAR! Not wanting to use the Luminous Mysteries doesn’t mean that you are against the mysteries they underscore. Who is against the Transfiguration of the Lord?
Anyway, here is a little poll.
