The five Luminous mysteries of the Rosary focus on the events of Jesus' life that are not covered by the other mysteries of the Rosary.

While many Catholics are familiar with the Joyful, Sorrowful and Glorious mysteries of the Rosary, not as many know the Luminous mysteries of the Rosary.

Here are the five Luminous mysteries of the Rosary as promoted by St. John Paul II.

  1. The Baptism in the Jordan
  2. The wedding feast of Cana
  3. The proclamation of the kingdom of God
  4. The Transfiguration
  5. The institution of the Eucharist
