Question from Mel on 3/20/2008:
Dear Father John Echert,
Pope John Paul II added the Luminous mysteries recently. I am used to say the 15 mysteries (Joyful, Sorrowful and Glorious) and I am still praying these 15 mysteries only. Is it okay that I continue to say the "old" rosary and not follow what the Pope added ?
Thank you very much and God bless you.
Answer by Fr. John Echert on 3/20/2008:
You are under no obligation to add the extra mysteries of the Rosary.
A blessed Triduum to you, Mel
