Brigittine/Carmelite Rosary: Glorious

This time around we have separate mysteries for both orders which are added to the end of the other mysteries. The Brigittines add The Patronage of Mary, Mediatrix of All Grace  and The Carmelites add The Patronage of Mary, Queen and Beauty of Carmel. Both orders hold Mary in great honor, the Brigittines as the order is subject to the local bishop and the honor of Mary, and the Carmelites are considered to be under the special protection of the Blessed Virgin, and have a strong devotion to Our Lady of Mount Carmel.  Once again they add Mary to the Rosary, but The Patronage of Mary is a better mystery than like the Institution of the Rosary since Mary is the Patroness of all humanity and I believe that we’ve turned to Mary even before the Rosary was first introduced to us. This is a prefect way to end the Rosary as it ends with a final focus on Mary who we often turn to as our Heavenly Mother. So in these six mystery rosaries we begin with the Immaculate Conception highlighting the beginning of Mary life and through her life all the way to the present and the future with Mary sitting in Heaven and us asking for help from her.
