Carmelite Glorious Mysteries Scriptural Rosary “

I have previously blogged about the 6-decade “Carmelite Rosary,” suggesting a sixth Luminous Mystery.
You may be familiar with the relatively standard “Scriptural Rosary,” where a Bible verse and, in a few cases, antiphon, is prayed before each Hail Mary. There are several variants of this practice, but the one most often published has a few verses assigned to the Assumption and Coronation that have always sounded mismatched to me, and, if one is to add the sixth Carmelite mystery of the Patronage/Apparition of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel, another set need to be added. So, with credit to “Rosary Army” For the structure.
All Scripture verses are from the Douay-Rheims, unless noted; titles, chapters and/or verses in brackets are the “standard,” KJV/Masoretic-based numbering versus the Douay/Vulgate numbering).

  1. A six decade rosary— do they make rosaries for that? I shall have to copy this out and put it with my prayer stuff. Since I consider myself a sort-of Carmelite by virtue of my scapular, which means a lot to me.

  2. You should think about doing a Scriptural rosary like this for all of the mysteries and then getting it published. If you cannot interest a Catholic publisher, you could always self-publish it. I’d be glad to help you with some of the technical things of self publishing.

    And now I must go off and construct a six-decade rosary. As soon as I locate all my rosary making supplies.
