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.


Concluding Prayer:

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