JP II  Luminous Mysteries (Thursday)  1 Rosarium

Sign of the Cross

In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen

The Apostles Creed

I believe in God, the Father Almighty, Creator of Heaven and earth and in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord Who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried;

He descended into hell; on the third day He rose again from the dead; He ascended into heaven, and is seated at the right hand of God the Father Almighty; from there He will come 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 life everlasting. Amen.

Or Psalm 70: “O God, come my assistance; O Lord, make haste to help me.”

The Our Father Prayer (Opening, then at the beginning of each decade.)

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.

The Hail Mary Prayer

(First three small beads. Intentions of the Holy Father. Hope, Faith, and Charity) * then as per each mystery in the following pages for each bead on the decade.)

Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee; blessed art thou among women and blest 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.


First Luminous   Mystery: The Baptism of Our Lord - Openness to   the Holy Spirit - Matthew   3:1-2, 11-17

In those days John the Baptist appeared in the wilderness of Judea, proclaiming, 2 “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven has come near.” 11 “I baptize you with water for repentance, but one who is more powerful than I is coming after me; I am not worthy to carry his sandals. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire. 12 His winnowing  fork is in his hand, and he will clear his threshing floor and will gather his wheat into the granary; but the chaff he will burn with unquenchable fire.” 13 Then Jesus came from Galilee to John at the Jordan, to be baptized by him. 14 John would have prevented him, saying, “I need to be baptized by you, and do you come to me?” 15 But Jesus answered him, “Let it be so now;  for it is proper for us in this way to fulfill all righteousness.” Then he consented. 16 And when Jesus had been baptized, just as he came up from the water,  suddenly the heavens were opened to him and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and alighting on him. 17 And a voice from heaven said, “This is my Son, the Beloved, with whom I am well pleased.”


Our Father …


Hail Mary full of grace,   the Lord is with thee. Blessed are thou among women and blest is the fruit of thy womb Jesus, who was baptized by John.

Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death. Amen.


The Glory Be Prayer (The Doxology) (and at the end of each decade)

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.

The Fatima prayer (end of each decade)

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.


Concluding Prayer:

Pray for us, Mary, star of the New   Evangelization, that we may be radically faithful to the promptings of the   Holy Spirit.
