Title: The Holy Rosary


1
The Holy Rosary
  • With Extracts from
  • the Apostolic Letter of John Paul II
  • Rosarium Virginis Mariæ

2
Introduction
  • The Rosary of the Virgin Mary, which gradually
    took form in the second millennium under the
    guidance of the Spirit of God, is a prayer loved
    by countless Saints and encouraged by the
    Magisterium. Simple yet profound, it still
    remains, at the dawn of this third millennium, a
    prayer of great significance, destined to bring
    forth a harvest of holiness. (RVM 1)

3
Opening Prayers
  • In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and
    of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
  • V. Lord, open our lips.
  • R. And we shall praise your name.
  • V. O God, come to our aid.
  • R. O Lord, make haste to help us.
  • V. 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.

4
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 the third day He
    rose again from the dead He ascended into
    heaven, sits at the right hand of God, the Father
    Almighty from thence He shall 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.

5
The Holy Fathers Intentions
  • Our Father
  • Hail Mary (x3)
  • Glory Be

6
The Joyful Mysteries
  • Monday Saturday

7
  • The first five decades, the joyful mysteries,
    are marked by the joy radiating from the event of
    the Incarnation. This is clear from the very
    first mystery, the Annunciation, where Gabriel's
    greeting to the Virgin of Nazareth is linked to
    an invitation to messianic joy Rejoice, Mary.
    The whole of salvation history, in some sense the
    entire history of the world, has led up to this
    greeting. (RVM 20)

8
The Annunciation
9
  • In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was
    with God, and the Word was GodAnd the Word
    became flesh and dwelt among us. (John 11,14)
    Behold, you will conceive in your womb and bear
    a Son, and you shall call his name Jesus
    Behold, I am the handmaid of the Lord let it be
    done to me according to your word. (Luke131,38)

10
  • If it is the Father's plan to unite all things
    in Christ (cf. Eph 110), then the whole of the
    universe is in some way touched by the divine
    favour with which the Father looks upon Mary and
    makes her the Mother of his Son. The whole of
    humanity, in turn, is embraced by the fiat with
    which she readily agrees to the will of God. (RVM
    20)

11
Evocative phrases Jesus
  • Whose arrival was announced by the angel Gabriel.
  • Who was conceived by the power of the Holy
    Spirit.
  • Who is Son of the Most High.
  • Who was Emmanuel, God with us.
  • Who was welcomed by Mary his Mother.
  • Who will be given the throne of David.
  • Whose Kingdom will have no end.
  • Who will save us from our sins.
  • Who was welcomed by Joseph, a just man.
  • Who was named by his parents as the angel had
    indicated.

12
Concluding Prayer
  • Lord,
  • help me to respond
  • to my vocation
  • with true fidelity.

13
The Visitation
14
  • Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the
    fruit of your womb My soul magnifies the
    Lord, and my spirit rejoices in God my Saviour.
  • (Luke 142,46)

15
  • Exultation is the keynote of the encounter with
    Elizabeth, where the sound of Mary's voice and
    the presence of Christ in her womb cause John to
    leap for joy (cf. Lk 144). (RVM 20)

16
Evocative phrases Jesus
  • Who journeyed in his Mothers womb to the hill
    country.
  • Who entered the house of Zechariah.
  • Who heard his mother greet Elizabeth.
  • Who caused Elizabeth to be filled with the Holy
    Spirit.
  • Whose presence made John leap for joy.
  • Who heard Mary proclaim the Magnificat.
  • Who hear his Mother prophesy All generations
  • Who came to exalt those of low degree.
  • Who came to fill the hungry with good things.
  • Who remained there for about three months.

17
Concluding Prayer
  • Lord,
  • help me see you in the sick and needy, the
    downtrodden and oppressed.

18
The Birth of Our Lord
19
  • She gave birth to her first-born Son and
    wrapped him in swaddling clothes To you is born
    this day, in the city of David, a Saviour who is
    Christ the Lord.
  • (Luke 27,11)

20
  • Gladness also fills the scene in Bethlehem, when
    the birth of the divine Child, the Saviour of the
    world, is announced by the song of the angels and
    proclaimed to the shepherds as news of great
    joy (Lk 210). (RVM 20)

21
Evocative phrases Jesus
  • Whose birth was foretold by the prophets.
  • Who was born in a stable.
  • Who was wrapped in swaddling clothes.
  • Who was laid in a manger.
  • Who brought peace to those of good will.
  • Who was circumcised in accordance with the law.
  • Who was given gold, frankincense and myrrh.
  • Who was persecuted by Herod.
  • Who was taken in flight to Egypt.
  • Who lived in exile.

22
Concluding Prayer
  • Lord,
  • let there be warmth in my heart and faith in my
    soul to receive you worthily.

23
The Presentation
24
  • They brought him up to Jerusalem to present him
    to the Lord this child will be a light for
    revelation to the Gentiles, and for glory to your
    people Israel.
  • (Luke 222,32)

25
  • The Presentation in the Temple not only
    expresses the joy of the Child's consecration and
    the ecstasy of the aged Simeon it also records
    the prophecy that Christ will be a sign of
    contradiction for Israel and that a sword will
    pierce his mother's heart (cf Lk 234-35). (RVM
    20)

26
Evocative phrases Jesus
  • Who is the first-born among many brethren.
  • Who obeyed the law of Moses.
  • Whose Mother presented herself for purification.
  • Whom Joseph ransomed with two young pigeons.
  • Whom Simeon took into his arms.
  • Whom Simeon recognised as the Messiah.
  • Who brings a light of revelations to the
    gentiles.
  • Who is the glory of Israel.
  • Who is a sign which will spoken against.
  • Who was acknowledged by Anna.

27
Concluding Prayer
  • Lord,
  • may I also marvel at the self-abasement of your
    incarnate Son.

28
The Finding in the Temple
29
  • The boy Jesus stayed behind in JerusalemAfter
    three days they found him in the Temple Did you
    not know that I must be about my Fathers
    affairs. (Luke 243,46,49)

30
  • Joy mixed with drama marks the fifth mystery,
    the finding of the twelve-year-old Jesus in the
    Temple. Here he appears in his divine wisdom as
    he listens and raises questions, already in
    effect one who teaches. The revelation of his
    mystery as the Son wholly dedicated to his
    Father's affairs proclaims the radical nature of
    the Gospel, in which even the closest of human
    relationships are challenged by the absolute
    demands of the Kingdom. Mary and Joseph, fearful
    and anxious, did not understand his words (Lk
    250). (RVM 20)

31
Evocative phrases Jesus
  • Who was called from Egypt by his Father.
  • Who lived quietly in Nazareth.
  • Who increased in wisdom and stature.
  • Who enjoyed Gods favour.
  • Who went to Jerusalem as the Law prescribed.
  • Who disconcerted his parents.
  • Who listened to the Jewish teachers.
  • Who astounded everyone with his answers.
  • Who went about his Fathers business.
  • Who returned home and obeyed his parents.

32
Concluding Prayer
  • Lord,
  • may I too grow in wisdom, in stature, and in
    favour with God and men.
  • (cf Lk 252).

33
  • To meditate upon the joyful mysteries, then,
    is to enter into the ultimate causes and the
    deepest meaning of Christian joy. It is to focus
    on the realism of the mystery of the Incarnation
    and on the obscure foreshadowing of the mystery
    of the saving Passion. Mary leads us to discover
    the secret of Christian joy, reminding us that
    Christianity is, first and foremost, euangelion,
    good news, which has as its heart and its whole
    content the person of Jesus Christ, the Word made
    flesh, the one Saviour of the world. (RVM 20)

34
The Luminous Mysteries
  • Thursday

35
  • Moving on from the infancy and the hidden life
    in Nazareth to the public life of Jesus, our
    contemplation brings us to those mysteries which
    may be called in a special way mysteries of
    light. Certainly the whole mystery of Christ is
    a mystery of light. He is the light of the
    world (Jn 812). Yet this truth emerges in a
    special way during the years of his public life,
    when he proclaims the Gospel of the Kingdom. (RVM
    21)

36
The Baptism of Our Lord in the Jordan
37
  • In those days Jesus came and was baptized by
    John in the Jordan. And a voice came from
    heaven, You are my beloved Son with you I am
    well pleased.
  • (Mark 19,11)

38
  • The Baptism in the Jordan is first of all a
    mystery of light. Here, as Christ descends into
    the waters, the innocent one who became sin for
    our sake (cf. 2Cor 521), the heavens open wide
    and the voice of the Father declares him the
    beloved Son (cf. Mt 317 and parallels), while
    the Spirit descends on him to invest him with the
    mission which he is to carry out. (RVM 21)

39
Evocative phrases Jesus
  • Who came to the Jordan to be baptised.
  • Who gave us an example of humility.
  • Who prevailed on John to baptise him.
  • On whom the Holy Spirit descended as a dove.
  • With whom the Father is well pleased.
  • Who the Father bids us heed.
  • Who was anointed for his Messianic mission.
  • Who taught us not to seek privileges.
  • Who made friends with John and Andrew.
  • Who engaged them in inspiring conversation.

40
Concluding Prayer
  • I thank you, Lord, for marking me with the sign
    of the Cross in Baptism.

41
Christs self-revelation at the wedding feast of
Cana
42
  • When the wine failed the mother of Jesus said
    to him, They have no wine Jesus said to the
    servants, Fill the jars with water. And they
    filled them to the brim The steward of the feast
    tasted the water now become wine.
  • (John 23,7,9)

43
  • Another mystery of light is the first of the
    signs, given at Cana (cf. Jn 21- 12), when
    Christ changes water into wine and opens the
    hearts of the disciples to faith, thanks to the
    intervention of Mary, the first among believers.
    (RVM 21)

44
Evocative phrases Jesus
  • Who was invited to a wedding.
  • Whose Mother Mary was also there.
  • Who was accompanied by his first disciples.
  • Whose Mother noticed they had run out of wine.
  • Who seemed reluctant to intervene.
  • Who said his time had not yet come.
  • Who always heeds Marys prayer for us.
  • Who told the servants to fill the jars.
  • Who turned the water into wine.
  • Who worked his first miracle in Cana.

45
Concluding Prayer
  • May I always do whatever he tells me.
  • (cf Jn 25)

46
The Proclamation of the Kingdomand the Call to
Conversation
47
  • Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the Gospel
    of God, and saying, The time is fulfilled, and
    the kingdom of God is at hand repent and believe
    in the Gospel.
  • (Mark 114-15)

48
  • Another mystery of light is the preaching by
    which Jesus proclaims the coming of the Kingdom
    of God, calls to conversion (cf. Mk 115) and
    forgives the sins of all who draw near to him in
    humble trust (cf. Mk 23-13 Lk 747- 48) the
    inauguration of that ministry of mercy which he
    continues to exercise until the end of the world,
    particularly through the Sacrament of
    Reconciliation which he has entrusted to his
    Church (cf. Jn 2022-23). (RVM 21)

49
Evocative phrases Jesus
  • Who began preaching in Galilee.
  • Who called the apostles while they were at work.
  • Who taught Christian living by word and deed.
  • Who was meek and humble of heart.
  • Who taught the primacy of charity.
  • Who confronted hypocrisy.
  • Who taught in parables.
  • Who confirmed his teaching with miracles.
  • Who loved his disciples.
  • Who teaches us in his Church.

50
Concluding Prayer
  • May I heed the call to conversion and enter
    Gods kingdom.

51
The Transfiguration
52
  • Jesus took with him Peter and James and John
    and led them up a high mountainand he was
    transfigured there appeared to them Elijah
    with Moses. Peter said, It is well that we are
    here. A voice came from the cloud, This is my
    beloved Son listen to him.
  • (Mark 92-5,7)

53
  • The mystery of light par excellence is the
    Transfiguration, traditionally believed to have
    taken place on Mount Tabor. The glory of the
    Godhead shines forth from the face of Christ as
    the Father commands the astonished Apostles to
    listen to him (cf. Lk 935 and parallels) and
    to prepare to experience with him the agony of
    the Passion, so as to come with him to the joy of
    the Resurrection and a life transfigured by the
    Holy Spirit. (RVM 21)

54
Evocative phrases Jesus
  • Who climbed Mount Tabor.
  • Who took Peter, James and John with him.
  • Who was transfigured in their sight.
  • Whose divinity shone through his humanity.
  • Who spoke to Moses and Elijah about his Passion.
  • To whom the Father spoke from heaven.
  • Who was shrouded in a cloud.
  • To whom Peter said, It is good to be here.
  • Who returned to is normal appearance.
  • Who told the apostles to remain silent for the
    present.

55
Concluding Prayer
  • May I always follow in his footsteps and listen
    to his words.

56
The Institution of the Blessed Eucharist
57
  • And he took bread, and when he had given thanks
    he broke it and gave it to them saying, This is
    my body which is given for you. Do this in
    remembrance of me. And likewise the cup after
    supper, saying, This cup which is poured out for
    you is the new covenant in my blood.
  • (Luke 2219-20)

58
  • A final mystery of light is the institution of
    the Eucharist, in which Christ offers his body
    and blood as food under the signs of bread and
    wine, and testifies to the end his love for
    humanity (Jn 131), for whose salvation he will
    offer himself in sacrifice. (RVM 21)

59
Evocative phrases Jesus
  • Who promised us the Bread of Life.
  • Who told us this Bread is indeed his flesh.
  • Who promised eternal life to those who eat his
    flesh and drink his blood.
  • Who longed to celebrate the Last Supper.
  • Who washed his apostles feet.
  • Who instituted the sacrificial sacrament.
  • Who instituted a new priesthood.
  • Who instructed us to celebrated the Eucharist.
  • Who is really, truly and substantially present.
  • Whom we receive sacramentally.

60
Concluding Prayer
  • Lord, I am not worthy to receive you

61
  • In these mysteries, apart from the miracle at
    Cana, the presence of Mary remains in the
    background. The Gospels make only the briefest
    reference to her occasional presence at one
    moment or other during the preaching of Jesus
    (cf. Mk 331-5 Jn 212), and they give no
    indication that she was present at the Last
    Supper and the institution of the Eucharist. Yet
    the role she assumed at Cana in some way
    accompanies Christ throughout his ministry. The
    revelation made directly by the Father at the
    Baptism in the Jordan and echoed by John the
    Baptist is placed upon Mary's lips at Cana, and
    it becomes the great maternal counsel which Mary
    addresses to the Church of every age Do
    whatever he tells you (Jn 25). This counsel is
    a fitting introduction to the words and signs of
    Christ's public ministry and it forms the Marian
    foundation of all the mysteries of light. (RVM
    21)

62
The Sorrowful Mysteries
  • Tuesday Friday

63
  • The Gospels give great prominence to the
    sorrowful mysteries of Christ. From the beginning
    Christian piety, especially during the Lenten
    devotion of the Way of the Cross, has focused on
    the individual moments of the Passion, realizing
    that here is found the culmination of the
    revelation of God's love and the source of our
    salvation. The Rosary selects certain moments
    from the Passion, inviting the faithful to
    contemplate them in their hearts and to relive
    them. (RVM 22)

64
The Agony in the Garden
65
  • He knelt down and prayed, Father if you are
    willing, remove this cup from me. And there
    appeared to him an angel from heaven,
    strengthening him.And his sweat became like
    great drops of blood falling upon the ground.
    (Luke 2241-44)

66
  • The sequence of meditations begins with
    Gethsemane, where Christ experiences a moment of
    great anguish before the will of the Father,
    against which the weakness of the flesh would be
    tempted to rebel. There Jesus encounters all the
    temptations and confronts all the sins of
    humanity, in order to say to the Father Not my
    will but yours be done (Lk 2242 and parallels).
    This Yes of Christ reverses the No of our
    first parents in the Garden of Eden. (RVM 22)

67
Evocative phrases Jesus
  • Who prayed to his Father.
  • Who asked his disciples to watch.
  • Whose soul was exceedingly sorrowful.

69

70
  • So Pilate, anxious to satisfy the crowd,

    delivered him to be crucified.
  • (Mark 1515)

71
  • And the cost of this faithfulness to the
    Father's will is made clear in the following
    mysteries by his scourging, his crowning with
    thorns, his carrying the Cross and his death on
    the Cross, (RVM 22)

    plaiting a crown of thorns they put it on him.
    And they began to salute him, Hail, King of the

    spat upon him, and they knelt down in homage to
    him.

    compelled a passer-by, Simon of Cyrene, to carry
    his cross. And they brought him to the place
    called Golgotha (which means the place of a
    skull).
  • (Mark 1520-22)

    and his Mothers sister, Mary the wife of Clopas,
    and Mary Magdalene. He said to his Mother,
    Woman, behold your son! and to the disciple
    whom he loved, Behold your Mother! He bowed
    his head and gave up his spirit.

    relive the death of Jesus, to stand at the foot
    of the Cross beside Mary, to enter with her into
    the depths of God's love for man and to
    experience all its life-giving power. (RVM 22)

90
The Glorious Mysteries
  • Wednesday Sunday

91
  • The contemplation of Christ's face cannot stop
    at the image of the Crucified One. He is the
    Risen One! The Rosary has always expressed this
    knowledge born of faith and invited the believer
    to pass beyond the darkness of the Passion in
    order to gaze upon Christ's glory in the
    Resurrection and Ascension. (RVM 23)

92
The Resurrection
93
  • And entering the tomb, they saw a young man
    sitting on the right side, dressed in a white
    robe and they were amazed. And he said to them,
    Do not be amazed you seek Jesus of Nazareth,
    who was crucified. He has risen he is not
    here.
  • (Mark 165-6)

94
  • Contemplating the Risen One, Christians
    rediscover the reasons for their own faith (cf.
    1Cor 1514) and relive the joy not only of those
    to whom Christ appeared the Apostles, Mary
    Magdalene and the disciples on the road to Emmaus
    but also the joy of Mary, who must have had an
    equally intense experience of the new life of her
    glorified Son. (RVM 23)

  • And suddenly a sound came from heaven like the

    house where they were sitting. And there
    appeared to them tongues as of fire, distributed

    all filled with the Holy Spirit.

  • At the centre of this unfolding sequence of the
    glory of the Son and the Mother, the Rosary sets

    gathered together with Mary, enlivened by the
    powerful outpouring of the Spirit and ready for
    the mission of evangelization. The contemplation
    of this scene, like that of the other glorious
    mysteries, ought to lead the faithful to an ever
    greater appreciation of their new life in Christ,
    lived in the heart of the Church, a life of which
    the scene of Pentecost itself is the great
    icon. (RVM 23)
