THE
GLORIOUS
MYSTERIES
1. THE RESURRECTION
Jesus rose from the dead. With it He conquered death, defeated Satan, sin, and the world, and gave new life to mankind. The joy of the risen Christ is greater than pain. The hope that comes from His resurrection is the victory over our own fear of dying. We follow Jesus; follow His steps through this world, and into the next.
Prayer Intention
Let us pray in thanksgiving and in praise, giving glory to the risen Lord. Let us offer to the Triumphant Prince of Peace, all those in despair, those who have lost hope lost faith; that in the Resurrection of Jesus will be their own future. He is the way and the truth and the life

2. THE ASCENSION
He goes to prepare a place for us, and has returned to The Father in heaven. And He has promised: Where I am, you can be too. Through His ascension, He has shown us a preview of our life hereafter. The Good Shepherd guides us through the valley of darkness. We are constantly tempted, distracted, disillusioned by here-and-now needs. It is Mary who assists, frequently trying to lift us up, trying to prepare us for her Son, asking that we make Jesus the first priority in our life You cannot serve two masters. You cannot serve God and the money of the world. Seek first the Kingdom of God.
Prayer Intention
Let us pray for direction; direction in our lives and for all those who have lost the way; that they may turn back to God. Let us pray that we might give direction to the children in the world, in meeting Jesus. Let us pray that Jesus may become their first priority.

3. THE DESCENT OF THE HOLY SPIRIT
Before His Ascension, Jesus had said, Because I go, the paraclete will come. The Spirit of God descended upon the apostles. They were empowered with the special gifts of God, to carry on the Lord's work of redemption. With them, was Mary, and the other women, praying with the infant Church. She has never ceased to pray for us and the Church, asking her Spouse, the Holy Spirit, to again touch hearts. She has told us to pray to the Holy Spirit; that those who have the gifts of the Holy Spirit have everything.
Prayer Intention
Let us offer these prayers for our own penticost. For an increase in the Holy Spirit's gifts to us. We pray for a deeper faith, and trust in God; for a complete submission to the will of God. Let us pray especially for gifts to the young, for strength that they may be able to stand up to the deception Satan brings to their daily activities.

Our Father...

4. THE ASSUMPTION
Mary is assumed, body and soul into heaven. Reunited with her Son, Jesus. Through her assumption, Mary became the reflection of her risen Son. She is also the model of the perfection to which we are called. She represents total submission to the will of God. Mary, as Mother of the Church, protect the Mystical Body of your Son, and our Saviour.
Prayer Intention
Here let us ask Mary to especially pray with us for the souls in purgatory; that she might join with us in intercession for those who can no longer help themselves. Those who now entirely depend on us for their final purification. Let us pray especially for the souls forgotten, who have no one to remember them.

 5. THE CORONATION OF MARY
Mary is crowned Queen of the angels and saints in heaven. Queen of the Holy Rosary, Queen of Peace, Queen of Apostles, Queen of Prophets. How many titles have been given to the Mother of the Incarnation of the Word! Not only is she proclaimed as the new Eve, and Mother of the Church, she is also given a prominent position in the salvation and redemption of the world. Her soul magnifies the Lord, all nations shall call her blessed. Her glorious coronation in heaven, is our hope
Prayer Intention
Let us offer this mystery then for Mary's intentions. Her intercession, her constant appearances, her role as Mediatrix of graces. Let us pray that her efforts on our behalf, her efforts to lead all her children back to her Son, will not be impeded. We pray also, to God, The Father, in thanksgiving for Mary's presence, for her role, for her help. We pray in thanksgiving that she is.
