Sorrowful Mysteries

Agony in the Garden

Scourging at the Pillar

Crowning with thorns

Jesus takes the cross*

The Crucifixion

* I especially love the Martin Feurstein's painting of Jesus taking the cross. It's stylized of course, but just look at His glowing face. He's reaching out to embrace the cross as if it were a beautiful thing instead of an object of horror. The priests, pharisees, and the Romans thought they were in charge but they knew nothing. Our Lord laid down His life  for love of sinners and three days later He took it up again. He was in charge and this painting does a good job showing it.
