THE LUMINOUS MYSTERIES

THE FIRST LUMINOUS MYSTERY:
THE BAPTISM OF OUR LORD

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name. Thy Kingdom come. Thy Will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen.

In those days John the Baptist came, preaching in the desert of Judea and saying “Repent for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.” (Matt. 3:1-2)

Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee. Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death. Amen.

Then people from Jerusalem, all of Judea, and all the region around the Jordan went out to him.  They were baptized by him in the Jordan, confessing their sins. (Matt. 3:5-6)

HAIL MARY

“I indeed baptize you with water for repentance.” But he who is coming after me is mightier than I, whose sandals I am not worthy to bear.” (Matt. 3:11)

HAIL MARY

“He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire.” (Matt. 3:11)

HAIL MARY

Then Jesus came from Galilee to John, at the Jordan, to be baptized by him. (Matt. 3:13)

HAIL MARY

But John would have hindered him, saying, “I need to be baptized by you, and you come to me?” (Matt. 3:14)

HAIL MARY

But Jesus, answering, said to him, “Allow it now, for this is the fitting way for us to fulfill all righteousness.” Then he allowed him. (Matt. 3:15)

HAIL MARY

Jesus, when he was baptized, went up directly from the water: and behold, the heavens were opened to him. (Matt. 3:16)

HAIL MARY

He saw the Spirit of God descending as a dove, and coming on him.  (Matt. 3:16)

HAIL MARY

A voice out of the heavens said, “This is my beloved Son, with whom I am well pleased.” (Matt. 3:17)

HAIL MARY

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit.  As it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name. Thy Kingdom come. Thy Will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen

There was a marriage in Cana of Galilee. Jesus’ mother was there (John 2:1)

Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee. Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death. Amen.

Jesus also was invited, with his disciples, to the marriage. When the wine ran out, Jesus’ mother said to him, “They have no wine.” (John 2:2-3)

HAIL MARY

Jesus said to her, “Woman, what does that have to do with you and me? My hour has not yet come.” (John 2:4)

HAIL MARY

His mother said to the attendants, “Do whatever he tells you.” (John 2:5)

HAIL MARY

Now six stone water-jars were placed there, after the Jewish manner of purification [each holding two or three measures (20-30 gallons)] (John 2:6)

HAIL MARY

Jesus said to them, “Fill the jars with water.” And they filled them to the brim. (John 2:7)

HAIL MARY

And Jesus said to them, “Now draw from it, and carry it to the chief steward of the feast.” And they took it to him. (John 2:8)

HAIL MARY

Then, when the chief steward had tasted the water made into wine, since he did not know where it was from, for only the servants who had drawn the water knew, the chief steward called the bridegroom. (John 2:9)

HAIL MARY

And He said to him, “Everyone serves the good wine first, and when the guests have drunk freely, then that which is worse. But You have kept the good wine until now!” (John 2:10)

HAIL MARY

This was the beginning of the signs that Jesus accomplished in Cana of Galilee, and it manifested his glory, and his disciples believed in him. (John 2:11)

HAIL MARY

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit.  As it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

O my Jesus, forgive us our sins; save us from the fires of Hell; lead all souls to Heaven, especially those in most need of Thy mercy!

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name. Thy Kingdom come. Thy Will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen.

Jesus came into Galilee preaching the Gospel of the kingdom of God, and saying "The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand. Repent and believe in the Gospel.” (Mark 1:14-15)

Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee. Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death. Amen.

“Unless your righteousness exceeds that of the Scribes and Pharisees, you shall not enter the kingdom of heaven.” (Matt 5:20)

HAIL MARY

 “The Kingdom of Heaven is like a merchant in search of fine pearls. When he finds a single pearl of great price, he goes and sells all that he has and buys it.” (Matt 13:45-46)

HAIL MARY

“Amen I say to you, unless you turn and become like little children you will not enter into the kingdom of heaven.” (Matt 18:3)

HAIL MARY

“Children, how hard it is for those that trust in riches to enter the kingdom of God!”  (Mark 10:24)

HAIL MARY

“I must proclaim the kingdom of God, for this is why I have been sent” (Luke 4:43)

HAIL MARY

“My kingdom is not of this world.” (John 18:36)

Jesus took Peter, James and his brother John and led them up a high mountain by themselves and was transfigured before them (Matt 17:1)

And his face shone as the sun and his garments became white as snow. (Matt 17:2)

HAIL MARY

And behold there appeared to them Moses and Elijah talking together with him. (Matt 17:3)

HAIL MARY

Now Peter and his companions were heavy with sleep. But when they were fully awake, they saw his glory and the two men who were standing with him. (Luke 9:32)

HAIL MARY

Then Peter addressed Jesus saying “Lord it is good for us to be here. Let us set up three tents here, one for you, one for Moses and one for Elijah” (Matt 17:4)

HAIL MARY

As he was still speaking, behold a bright cloud overshadowed them. (Matt 17:5)

HAIL MARY

And behold a voice out of the cloud said “This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased; hear him.” (Matt 17:5)

HAIL MARY

And on hearing it the disciples fell on their faces and were exceedingly afraid. (Matt 17:6)

HAIL MARY

And Jesus came near and touched them and said to them, “Arise, and do not be afraid.” (Matt 17:7)

HAIL MARY

And suddenly looking round, they no longer saw anyone with them but only Jesus. (Mark 9:8)

HAIL MARY

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit.  As it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
