REVIEW from our last lesson on the LAST SUPPER and Jesus' journey to the cross.

Look at to find the answers for each circle or sorrowful mystery of the Rosary some of us experienced for the last 40 days of Lent before Easter Sunday.

Or, look up the passages on your device by writing in: Luke 22:41-44; John 19:1; Matthew 27:27-30; Luke 23:26, and Luke 23:33-46.

BONUS: What is the FRUIT OF THE MYSTERY that we are hopefully developing in our souls for each sorrowful mystery?



  1. The Agony in the Garden: Luke 22:41-44 Our Fruit: SORROW for OUR SINS

  2. The Scourging at the Pillar: John 19:1 Our Fruit: PURITY of our souls

  3. The Crowning with Thorns Matthew 27:27-30 Our Fruit: MORAL COURAGE

  4. The Carrying of the Cross Luke 23:26 Our Fruit PATIENCE

  5. The Crucifixion Luke23:33-46 Our Fruit: PERSEVERANCE

LUKE 24:1-12

Jesus Rises from the Dead.

1 At daybreak on the first day of the week, the women came to the tomb with the spices they had prepared.

2 They found the stone rolled away from the tomb,

3 but when they went inside, they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus.

4 While they stood there wondering about this, suddenly two men in dazzling clothes appeared at their side.

5 They were terrified and bowed their faces to the ground, but the men said to them, “Why do you look among the dead for one who is alive?

6 He is not here. He has been raised. Remember what he told you while he was still in Galilee:

7 that the Son of Man must be handed over to sinners and be crucified and rise again on the third day.”

8 Then they recalled his words.

9 When they returned from the tomb, they reported all these things to the Eleven and to all the others.

10 It was Mary Magdalene, Joanna, Mary the mother of James, and the other women with them who told this to the apostles.

11 However, this story of theirs seemed to be nonsense, and the apostles did not believe them.

12 Nonetheless, Peter got up and ran to the tomb. Bending over, he looked inside and saw only the linen cloths. Then he returned home, wondering what had occurred.

  1. What do we learn about God from this passage?

  • God raised Jesus from the dead! v.6

  • Jesus tells his disciples exactly what happened to him BEFORE it happened. He knew the plan before hand. (Look up: Luke 9:21-22; Luke 9:43-45; Luke 18:31-34)

2. .What do we learn about Jesus’ friends?

  • WOMEN were the first to discover that Jesus was alive!

  • They saw the EMPTY TOMB and heard and saw the angels!

  • They were VERY excited and faithfully shared the good news.

  • Still it was hard for others to believe.

  • Peter had to go to the tomb to see for himself.

3. What do you NOW believe about Jesus?

  • He was with God the Father and the Holy Spirit before creation.

  • He is the divine Son of God

  • According to God’s plan he came down from heaven to live among us.

  • Through the power of the Holy Spirit he was conceived and born of the Virgin Mary,

  • Was always in prayer with the Father

  • Listening and obeying God’s WILL and PLAN to complete his Mission

  • Shared God’s LOVE and deep compassion with ALL

  • Taught his 12 disciples God’s Truth and WAY of Life: praying, learning God’s WORD, and serving others.

  • Healed the sick, raised the dead

  • Forgave sins of those who were sorry for their sins

  • Taught his disciples how to PRAY (Our Father)

  • He gave his disciple John to Mary, his Mother before his death on the cross.

  • Suffered, was crucified, died and was buried.

  • On the third day, he was raised from the dead by the power of God over sin and death.

  • He ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of God.

  • He will come again to judge the living and the dead.

4. Who will you share this story with?

5. What PRAYER (s) will you say every day and ponder in your heart as a family?





6. What PRAYER (s) will you say weekly before/at MASS




  • Hail Mary

  • Our Father


  1. SIGN of the CROSS

In the name of the Father,

and of the Son,

and of the Holy Spirit. AMEN


Our Father, who art in heaven,

hallowed be thy name;

thy kingdom come,

thy will be done

on earth as it is in heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread,

and forgive us our trespasses, (SINS)

as we forgive those who trespass

against us;

and lead us not into temptation,

but deliver us from evil,



Hail, Mary, full of grace,

the Lord is with thee.

Blessed art thou among women

and blessed is the fruit

of thy womb, Jesus.

Holy Mary, Mother of God,

pray for us sinners,

now and at the hour of our death.


4. GLORY BE (Doxology)

Glory be to the Father

and to the Son

and to the Holy Spirit

as it was in the beginning

is now and ever shall be w

world without end. AMEN


My God,

I am sorry for my sins with all my heart.

In choosing to do wrong

and failing to do good,

I have sinned against you,

whom I should love above all things.

I firmly intend, with your help,

to do penance, to sin no more,

and to avoid whatever leads me to sin.

Our Savior Jesus Christ

Suffered and died for us.

In his name, my God, have mercy.



My Jesus, I believe that you are present in the Most Holy Sacrament. I love you above all things, and I desire to receive you into my soul. Since I cannot at this moment receive you sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart. I embrace you as if you were already there and unite myself wholly to you. Never permit me to be separated from you. AMEN
