Pope John Paul II wasn’t the first to propose Luminous Mysteries for the Rosary

Continuity is the key.  The Holy Spirit doesn’t deny or change the past for that would be double minded.  A denial and rejection of himself.  He simple continues to reveal more of God’s mystery in an infinite process of discovery on our journey of sanctification.

The Luminous Mysteries are a wonderful example of continuity with the original mysteries without a rupture of tradition.  The past wasn’t changed or denied, only added to.  May we see this approach applied to the Mass and our past restored in a Vatican II spirit of continuity rather than the cultural spirit of rupture.
