The five joyful, five sorrowful and five glorious mysteries will be familiar to Roman Catholics and High Anglicans everywhere. Meditating on these fifteen mysteries from scripture while saying an Our Father and ten Hail Mary prayers, a form of meditation known as the Holy Rosary, is an essential part of this tradition. The rosary was introduced by St. Dominic in the 13th century as a modern echo of the 150 psalms of the Old Testament.

The five joyful mystery paintings are housed at the Priory of Christ the King at Tororo, in Uganda.

The five sorrowful mysteries will be housed at the "bible on the ground" church at Nanyuki, Kenya, when the church is completed.

The five glorious mysteries are housed at the Benedictine Study House at Langata, Nairobi, Kenya.
