Some amount of mortification is profitable so that the spirit can have sufficient freedom and control over the flesh. Don't be concerned about human esteem; instead fear the judgement of God. A word of approbation from God is infinitely more valuable than the esteem of all human beings whose praise is often spurious.
So too with health: if we have abundance of health, we can do great things for the glory of God; but when we are in poor health, we have to learn to mortify our grand desires, even if they are about very holy things. We should know how to realize them or leave them with a holy indifference in the will of God.
There are things that truly help us: make use of them as much as possible.

- a fundamental truth: the mystery of the incarnation.
- a moral lesson: Mary's humility in accepting the responsibility.
- Grace: obedience to the divine will and the grace to accept well the graces to correspond to God' will.
Here we have a truth to meditate upon, a lesson to be learned and a grace to be prayed for. So with all the other mysteries.
The rosary is a short course of theology if it is considered in all its joyful, sorrowful and glorious mysteries. It is a summary of catechism and theology and can be also called therefore: A short theology of Jesus and Mary.
