The First Glorious Mystery

The Resurrection

On entering the tomb, they saw a young man sitting at the right side, clothed
in a white robe, and they were amazed. He said to them, “Do not be terrified.
You are looking for Jesus of Nazareth, who was crucified. He has risen, He is not
here. Behold the place where they laid Him. But go, tell His disciples and Peter
that He goes before you into Galilee; there you shall see Him, as He told you.”

Let us pray

That the doctors and nurses who use their skill to kill instead of heal
will repent and return to the service of the sick.

In the end of the sabbath, as it began to dawn toward the first day of the week, came Mary Magdalene and the other Mary to see the sepulchre. And, behold, there was a great earthquake: for the angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat upon it. And the angel answered and said unto the women: “Fear not ye! For I know that ye seek Jesus, which was crucified. He is not here. For he is risen, as he said”. (Matt 28,1-6)


 

The Second Glorious Mystery

The Ascension

Now He led them out towards Bethany, and He lifted up His hands and blessed
them. And it came to pass as He blessed them, that He parted from them and was
carried up into Heaven. And they worshipped Him.

Let us pray

That the efforts of all those involved in pro-life activities
may be pleasing to God.

And as they are speaking these things, Jesus Himself stood in the midst of them, and saith to them, “Peace to you”; being amazed, and becoming affrighted, they were thinking themselves to see a spirit. And he said to them, “Why are ye troubled? and wherefore do reasonings come up in your hearts? see my hands and my feet, that I am he; handle me and see, because a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as ye see me having.” And having said this, he showed to them the hands and the feet. … “And, lo, I do send the promise of my Father upon you, but ye — abide ye in the city of Jerusalem till ye be clothed with power from on high.” And he led them forth without — unto Bethany, and having lifted up His hands he did bless them, and it came to pass, in His blessing them, he was parted from them, and was borne up to the heaven. (Luke 24,36-51)


 

The Third Glorious Mystery

The Descent of the Holy Spirit

Suddenly there came a sound from Heaven, as of a violent wind blowing, and
it filled the whole house where they were sitting. And there appeared to them
parted tongues as of fi re, which settled upon each of them. And they were all
filled with the Holy Spirit.

Let us pray

That the Holy Spirit will enlighten and strengthen members of the
courts and legislatures to protect the right to life
from conception to natural death.

And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting. And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance. (Acts 2,1-4)


 

The Fourth Glorious Mystery

The Assumption of
Our Blessed Mother into Heaven

And Mary said, “My soul magnifies the Lord, and my spirit rejoices in God my
Saviour; because He has regarded the lowliness of His handmaid; for, behold,
henceforth all generations shall call me blessed.”

Let us pray

That the mothers, fathers and families will accept responsibility
towards their precious infants and each other.

Blessed art thou of the most high God above all the women upon the earth; and blessed be the Lord God, which hath created the heavens and the earth, which hath directed thee to the cutting off of the head of the chief of our enemies. … Thou hast done all these things by thine hand: thou hast done much good to Israel, and God is pleased therewith: blessed be thou of the Almighty Lord for evermore. And all the people said, So be it. (Jdt 13,18-20; 15,10)


 

The Fifth Glorious Mystery

The Coronation of
Our Blessed Mother Queen of Heaven

Blessed are you, My daughter, beyond all the women on Earth in the sight of
the Most High God, and blessed is the Lord God, Who created the Heavens and
the Earth.

Let us pray

That the right to life of all human beings be respected so that all
may attain the heavenly goals for which they were created.

There appeared a great sign in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars. (Rev 12,1)

Let us trust in Mary, Let us call to Her, let us love Her, let us confide in Her, because She gives Her all to us. We have a Mother in Heaven who is also a Queen; thus we need to turn to Her with full faith and hopefulness. If we ask for something while praying the Holy Rosary, it will be granted to us. Ask Her for the gift of prayer, a prayer of the heart, said only for love, a love for Her and Jesus. Let us also ask for a consistency of prayer, to always be joined to Her Heart, and therefore to the Heart of Jesus.
