her, he said, “Hail, full of grace, the
Lord is with thee. Blessed art thou
among women.”
Fruit of the Mystery: Humility

believed in Him and because I had humbled myself.”

3. Trust in Mary                        The Church has great
                                              trust in her. For it must
                                              be recognized that

                                              entrusted himself to

4.*** Seek the will of God
                      “Happy is the soul, to
                      which the Most High
                      manifests his holy and
                      perfect will; but more
                      happy and blessed is
                      he, who puts into
                      execution, what he
                      has learned.”

5. Hear the delicate voice of the Lord
                           “I wish to see thee very
                           attentive, and very quick and
                           diligent in following it up in
                           deed. In order to hear this
                           most delicate and spiritual
                           voice of the Lord it is
                           necessary that the creature
                           live entirely according to the
                           spirit. Listen, my daughter,
                           and incline thy ear; free
                           thyself from all visible
                           things.” (Mary of Agreda)

6.*** Say “Yes”   “In many ways God shows
      to God      to mortals the highways
                  and pathways of eternal
                  life: by the Gospels, by the
                  Sacraments and laws of the
                  holy Church, by the
                  writings and examples of
                  the saints, and by the
                  obedience due its ministers.
                  Whenever by any of these
                  means thou hast come to
                  the knowledge of the will
                  of God, I desire thee to
                  assume the wings of
                  humility and obedience,
                  and, hasten to execute it.”
                  (Mary of Agreda)
7. As obedient servant
                         “He intimates his
                         perfect will to them in a
                         supernatural manner.
                         God is always sweet in
                         commanding, just in
                         his commands,
                         powerful in giving the
                         necessary help,
                         quick in disposing
                         circumstances so that
                         He can be obeyed.”
                         (Mary of Agreda)
8. The Holy Spirit will come upon thee
The Rosary is genuine “training in holiness” in the “School of Mary”. She
teaches by obtaining for us the gifts of the Holy Spirit.---Pope John Paul II

                                                       “I teach you
                                                       how to live; I
                                                       form you in a
                                                       practical way
                                                       to live with me.

                                                       communion of
                                                       life and of love
                                                       with me.” (Gobbi)
                                                       Mary is vital to

9. “Let it be to me….”
                         Mary’s words “Let it be to
                         me” indicates not a
                         passive acceptance but an
                         active embracing and a
                         desire for God’s will in her
                         life. His plan for our lives is
                         always the best for us, and
                         corresponds to our heart’s
                         deepest longings.
                         Mary’s “Yes” serves as a
                         model of faith for all
                         believers. (Pope John Paul II)

How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of
those who bring good news. (Isaiah 52.7)

3.* The Greeting:     There entering in, she gave
Elizabeth greeting.
                          “As I visited Elizabeth
                          out of love, I wish to
                          visit you out of love. I
                          wish to come into
                          your situation
                          whatever it may be: to
                          be present with you
                          and to pray with you
                          and for you.”

4. The Leap for joy
                                No sooner had Elizabeth heard Mary’s greeting
                               than the child leaped in her womb for joy.
                                    God, when the infant John
                                    leapt in Elizabeth’s womb
                                    in recognition of Christ’s
                                    divinity, You miraculously
                                    showed us that the
                                    sanctity of life begins
                                    before birth. It was an

                   (Mary of Agreda)
6.** The Search for Jesus
                                          Our Lord did not spare
                                          even his holy Mother all
                                          kinds of sorrows and
                                          troubles. The cross is
                                          God’s precious treasure
                                          given to his Elect.

                                          Let us ask for the grace
                                               .
                                          to never lose Jesus. Let
                                          us make Jesus the
                                          center of our lives.
                                          Whoever has God has
                                          everything.
                                          Jesus is at the center of the picture.
Pinturicchio, The Dispute in the Temple, 1510, Spello, Church of Santa Maria,
7. Finding Jesus in the temple
                           “The Lord absented
                           Himself from me in
                           order that, seeking Him
                           in sorrow and tears, I
                           might find Him again in
                           joy. I desire that thou
                           imitate me in this
                           mystery and seek Him
                           with such earnestness,
                           as to be consumed with
                           a continual longing
                           until thou holdst him
                           and canst lose Him no
                           more.” (Mary of Agreda)
8. Lord, give us the gift of true wisdom.
“The height of perversity opposed to the order of the Creator, is that
mortals in this transitory and short life rejoice in visible things as if
they were their last end, while they ought on the contrary, to make use
of creatures to gain, not to lose, the highest Good. Do thou, therefore,
my dearest, be mindful of this dangerous human folly. (Mary of Agreda)
9.        “My son, why hast thou treat us so? Think what anguish
          of mind Thy father and I have endured, searching for thee?”
“Your Mother wants you whole and entire at every moment with her. At every moment
you must be just as I would have you be; you must do just what I would have you do.”
(Gobbi)

Lead us to a spiritual renewal with prayer and penance,

Finally pray one Our
Father, one Hail Mary, and

Father’s intention.

Joyful Mysteries: Introduction

  • 1. Begin the Cenacle by recitation of the Holy Rosary with Mary, Our Lady of all Nations For the New Evangelization of Nations O Lord, Take from us all lukewarmness in meditation and all dullness in prayer. Give us fervour and delight in thinking of you, and the grace to work for the things we pray for. (St. Thomas More) Pray the Creed.
  • 2. Cenacle with Mary  The Cenacle is Group prayer,  with Mary and all angels and saints,  using the Rosary,  to invoke the descent of the Holy Spirit (a second Pentecost),  for a second evangelization of continents and nations. (Asia, Africa, Russia, China, India, etc) Pray the Our Father
  • 3. The Cenacle Pray with 3 virtues 1. Faith 2. Hope 3 3. Love. 2 Pray with 3 choirs 1 1. Angels 2. Saints 3. Confraternity of the Rosary To invoke the descent of the Holy 1 2 3 Spirit upon nations The prayer of the Rosary is no longer a monologue or a dialogue, but a chorus, a TRUE COMMUNION OF ANGELS AND SAINTS
  • 4. First Joyful Mystery The Annunciation and when the angel had come to her, he said, “Hail, full of grace, the Lord is with thee. Blessed art thou among women.” Fruit of the Mystery: Humility
  • 5. 1. “Hail, full of grace, the Lord is with you.” “Do you know why God did this? Because I had believed in Him and because I had humbled myself.” ---The blessed Virgin spoke to St. Elizabeth of Schoenau. Leonardo Da Vinci. 1452-1519. The Annunciation. Uffizi. Florence. Italy
  • 6. 2. The blessed virgin is often depicted as fetching water with a pitcher, as she prepares herself to be the “container” of Jesus. Water plays a powerful symbolic role. Jesus said “Those who drink the living waters will never suffer spiritual thirst.” Twelve century mosaic, Basilica of San Marco. Venice.
  • 7. 3. Trust in Mary The Church has great trust in her. For it must be recognized that The archangel holds a lily before anyone else it which signifies Mary’s was God himself, the virginity. Eternal Father who entrusted himself to the Virgin of Nazareth, giving her His own Son in the mystery of the Incarnation. (Pope John Paul II) The Madonna bows her head and places a hand She became the Arc of on her chest, a gesture of the Covenant, the submission. tabernacle of the Most Master of St. Verdiana, The Annunciation, 1410. Paul Getty Museum. Los Angeles. High.
  • 8. 4.*** Seek the will of God “Happy is the soul, to which the Most High manifests his holy and perfect will; but more happy and blessed is he, who puts into execution, what he has learned.” (Mary of Agreda) Francesco Alberni. Annunciation.. Hermitage museum. St. Petersburg.
  • 9. 5. Hear the delicate voice of the Lord “I wish to see thee very attentive, and very quick and diligent in following it up in deed.
