Welcome to Day 3 of the Small Steps Blog Tour! Our theme today is Sacrifice.


You'll find today's "small steps" over at Small Things. We invite you to join us throughout the day in offering a rosary reflecting on the Luminous Mysteries. It might seem counter-intuitive to reflect on sacrifice while praying the Luminous Mysteries, but sacrifice is such a part of life, isn't it? With each gain, a loss. Or, as the old saw goes, when a window closes, a door opens. And I can't help but ask, "Were y'all raised in a barn?"

The Luminous Mysteries of the Rosary:

  • The Baptism of Jesus in the Jordan
  • The Wedding at Cana
  • The Proclamation of the Kingdom
  • The Transfiguration
  • The Institution of the Eucharist
