Luminous Mysteries

Apostles’ Creed
I believe in God, the Father almighty, Creator of heaven and earth. I believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord. He was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary. He suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried. He descended to the dead. On the third day he rose again. He ascended into heaven, and is seated at the right hand of the Father.

He will come again to judge the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting. Amen.

Text Mystery Meditation Bead

When Jesus was baptized, he went up immediately from the water, and behold, the heavens were opened and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and behold, a voice from heaven, saying, ‘This is my beloved Son, with whom I am well pleased.’ Mt 3:16-17
The Baptism of the Lord
The Lord Jesus came to each of us in our baptisms. When you were baptized, the Holy Spirit descended upon you, and the Father said, "This is my beloved child, with whom I am well pleased!" Thus, you became the light of Christ to shine in the world. You have been invested with the mission of this light!

His mother said to the servants, ‘Do whatever he tells you.’ Jn 2:5

The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand; repent, and believe in the gospel. Mk 1:15
The Preaching of the Kingdom
Jesus has proclaimed the kingdom of God to you, and you have said "yes" to the Good News and "no" to sin. Every moment that you live, He is breathing into you the divine power of the Holy Spirit as He sends you forth into a world of sin, and every time you get hurt, He asks you to reveal His light by forgiving the sinners and doing good to them in His name.

He was transfigured before them, and his face shone like the sun, and his garments became white as light. Mt 17:2
The Transfiguration
The uncreated of light of glory within Christ Jesus is also within you. It's revealed to the world every time you suffer for the sake of loving others and offer your pain to Jesus for their healing and redemption. By doing good when it's difficult, you get purified from your own sinfulness, and your light grows stronger. Thus so closely united to Jesus, you enter into the joy of His resurrection.

[Jesus] took bread, and blessed, and broke it, and gave it to them, and said, ‘Take; this is my body.’ [Jesus] took a chalice, and when he had given thanks he gave it to them, and they all drank of it. Mk 14:22-23

The Institution of the Eucharist
In loving all others unconditionally, the way Jesus has given you His love, you enlighten the world. As you humble yourself to serve others, as He serves you, His light spreads, and so the world becomes a better place. You have become Eucharist. With Jesus, you are the light of the world. You make a difference!

Pray the Hail Holy Queen and Closing Prayer.

Hail, holy Queen, Mother of mercy, our life, our sweetness and our hope. To thee do we cry, poor banished children of Eve. To thee do we send up our sighs, mourning and weeping in this valley of tears. Turn then, most gracious advocate, thine eyes of mercy toward us; and after this our exile, show unto us the blessed fruit of thy womb, Jesus.

O clement, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary. Pray for us, O holy Mother of God that we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ!

Closing Prayer
Let us pray. O God, whose only begotten Son, by His life, death, and resurrection, has purchased for us the rewards of eternal life, grant, we beseech Thee, that meditating upon these mysteries of the Most Holy Rosary of the Blessed Virgin Mary, we may imitate what they contain and obtain what they promise, through the same Christ Our Lord. Amen

May the divine assistance remain always with you.

May the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.
