The Glorious Mysteries

Wednesdays and Saturdays (also Sundays from Easter until Advent)

THE RESURRECTION

The Virtue—
That our hearts may never go astray after the false joys of this world, but by an increase in faith, we will seek the true and solid joys of Heaven.

Consider the Son of God springing forth in a blaze of glory from the tomb; and implore the grace of a spiritual resurrection, as he has given us the model of one in his own person.

Hail Mary, ten times — Glory Be— O My Jesus

The Prayer—
Most holy Mother of God! by those transports of joy wherewith thou was overwhelmed at the Resurrection of thy adorable Son, obtain for us, that we may participate in the glory of his immortal life; that we may so arise from the tomb of our sins and evil habits, as never more to return to them, but to walk hereafter in the newness of life. Amen.

THE ASCENSION

The Virtue—
That we may enjoy the benefits of His blessings here on earth and hereafter in the Kingdom of Heaven.

Call to mind how, on the fortieth day after his Resurrection, the Son of God ascended into heaven in the full display of his Majesty, in the presence of his disciples; and how he invites us to follow him thither by the fervour of our desires, if we wish hereafter to join him in the realms of glory.

Hail Mary, ten times — Glory Be— O My Jesus

The Prayer—
O Holy Virgin! who didst more vehemently sigh after thy Son in heaven than all those who had attended him on earth, draw us to him by thy powerful intercession; that, disengaged more and more from the empty enjoyments of this world, we may every day advance in that path of virtue, which he and you have so edifyingly traced out for us. Amen

THE DESCENT OF THE HOLY GHOST

The Virtue—
That with zeal, we canl work toward our salvation by walking in the true ways of virtue and good works.

Remember how our Lord Jesus Christ, being, seated at the right hand of his Eternal Father, sent, as he had promised, the Holy Ghost upon his Church, this divine Spirit coming down in the form of fiery tongues. Let us beseech him so to enlighten our minds, and inflame us with his love, that we may ever speak and act conformably to that law of grace, which he hath promulgated.

Hail Mary, ten times — Glory Be— O My Jesus

The Prayer—
Hail Virgin full of grace, and replenished on this day (of Pentecost) with a still greater abundance of heavenly gifts, behold in pity our manifold spiritual wants ; obtain for us some sparks of that sacred fire which was shed upon thee, that, enlightened by the truths of the Gospel. and animated by the ardour of divine love, we may ever sensibly feel the influence of this Holy Spirit. Amen.

THE ASSUMPTION OF THE
BLESSED VIRGIN MARY

The Virtue—
That through Blessed Virgin Mary, we will obtain the grace of a pure life, a holy death and a happy participation in supreme bliss.

C onsider, that the period appointed by the Eternal Wisdom being at length arrived, the Blessed Virgin quits the earth, to regain in heaven the company of her Son. Let us rejoice in her bliss and glory, begging that she may also conduct us thither by her prayers.

Hail Mary, ten times — Glory Be— O My Jesus

The Prayer—
O Thou, who by excellence art styled the Mother of holy love, it was in thy death and thy glorious Assumption that this love attained in thee the very summit of a perfect union of body and soul. May we be given insight into the last judgment, when we will all be reunited eternally with our souls in Heaven. Amen.

THE CORONATION OF THE
BLESSED VIRGIN MARY

The Virtue—
That by the intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary, our souls may be inflamed with an ardent desire of seeing Her gloriously crowned and that it may never die within us until we behold Her blessed sight in Heaven.

Reflect on how the most perfect of Sons receives into heaven the most holy of Mothers; assigning to her the rank that was due to her merits and dignity, and crowning her with the brightest crown of glory.

Hail Mary, ten times — Glory Be— O My Jesus

The Prayer—
Queen of angels and men! acknowledged as such in heaven and on earth, under the boundless authority of thy Son; graciously accept the homage we have presented to thee in this Rosary. Look upon us as thy children; lift up thy pure hands on our behalf, that we may ever feel the effects of thy Patronage, and at length behold thee sealed on thy throne of glory in the Kingdom of Heaven. Amen.
