JOYFUL MYSTERIES


CARRY THE CROSS & PRAY THE ROSARY DAILY



WE DO NOT ABANDONS OUR MOTHER.

WE LOOK UP TO OUR FATHER

We ask for the intercession of the Blessed Virgin

Memorare, The Raccolta, ed. 1910, #197.  Coeleste Palmetum 1866.


Let us pray:

REMEMBER, O most gracious Virgin Mary,

that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection,

implored thy, help, or sought thy intercession, was left unaided.

Inspired with this confidence, I fly unto thee, O Virgin of virgins, my mother;

to thee I come, before thee I stand, sinful and sorrowful;

O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions;

but in thy clemency hear and answer me. 

Amen.


Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil.
May God rebuke him, we humbly pray;
and do Thou, O Prince of the Heavenly Host -
by the Divine Power of God -
cast into hell, satan and all the evil spirits,
who roam throughout the world seeking the ruin of souls.

Amen

according to Jesus' Sacred Heart intentions;

for all grace and blessing that will

make us close this beloved Heart

in life, in death, in time and eternity; for the sick; the dying;

for the conversion of sinners and for the souls in Purgatory;

for those who have asked for our prayers

and we are obliged to ask for and the family's intentions,

to You, God, may all lead to your greater honour

and glory and a glorious death for us all.

I believe in God, the Father Almighty,

Creator of heaven and earth.

And in Jesus Christ,

His only Son, our Lord,

                                    Let us kneel

who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,

born of the Virgin Mary,

                                    Let us arise

suffered under Pontius Pilate,

was crucified, died, and was buried.

He descended into hell;

on the third day He rose again

from the dead;

He ascended into heaven,

and is seated at the right hand of God

the Father almighty,

from there 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


Credo in Deum Patrem omnipotentem,

Creatorem coeli et terrae.

Et in Jesum Christum,

Filium ejus unicum, Dominum nostrum,


qui conceptus est de Spiritu Sancto,

natus ex Maria virgine,


passus sub Pontio Pilato,

crucifixus, mortuus, et sepultus,

descendit ad infernos,

tertia die resurrexit a mortuis,

ascendit ad coelos,

sedet ad dexteram

Dei Patris omnipotentis,

inde venturus

est judicare vivos et mortuos.

 

Credo

in Spiritum Sanctum,

sanctam ecclesiam catholicam,

sanctorum communionem,

remissionem peccatorum,

carnis resurrectionem

et vitam aeternam.              

Amen

The Annunciation    Annunciatio     (Luk 1:26-38)


(We do the Sign of the Cross      Fides,   Spes   a nd   Caritas     which both opens and closes the sequence of prayer)

In the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God to a city of Galilee named Nazareth, to a virgin betrothed to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David; and the virgin’s name was Mary.


And he came to her and said,

“Hail, full of grace, the Lord is with you!”


But she was greatly troubled at the saying, and considered in her mind what sort of greeting this might be. And the angel said to her,


“Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favor with God.

And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bear a son,

and you shall call his name Jesus.

He will be great, and will be called the Son of the Most High;

and the Lord God will give to him the throne of his father David,

and he will reign over the house of Jacob for ever;

and of his kingdom there will be no end.”


And Mary said to the angel,

“How can this be, since I have no husband?”


And the angel said to her,

“The Holy Spirit will come upon you,

and the power of the Most High will overshadow you;

therefore the child to be born will be called holy, the Son of God.

And behold, your kinswoman Elizabeth in her old age has also conceived a son; and this is the sixth month with her who was called barren.

For with God nothing will be impossible.”


And Mary said,

“Behold, I am the handmaid of the Lord; let it be to me according to your word.”


And the angel departed from her.

In those days Mary arose and went with haste into the hill country, to a city of Judah, and she entered the house of Zechariah and greeted Elizabeth.


And when Elizabeth heard the greeting of Mary, the babe leaped in her womb; and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit and she exclaimed with a loud cry,


“Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb!

And why is this granted me, that the mother of my Lord should come to me?

For behold, when the voice of your greeting came to my ears,

the babe in my womb leaped for joy.

And blessed is she who believed

that there would be a fulfilment of what was spoken to her from the Lord.”

In those days a decree went out from Caesar Augustus that all the world should be enrolled. This was the first enrollment, when Quirinius was governor of Syria. And all went to be enrolled, each to his own city. And Joseph also went up from Galilee, from the city of Nazareth, to Judea, to the city of David, which is called Bethlehem, because he was of the house and lineage of David, to be enrolled with Mary, his betrothed, who was with child. And while they were there, the time came for her to be delivered. And she gave birth to her first-born son and wrapped him in swaddling cloths, and laid him in a manger, because there was no place for them in the inn.

And when the time came for their purification according to the law of Moses, they brought him up to Jerusalem to present him to the Lord and to offer a sacrifice according to what is said in the law of the Lord, “a pair of turtledoves, or two young pigeons.”


Now there was a man in Jerusalem, whose name was Simeon, and this man was righteous and devout, looking for the consolation of Israel, and the Holy Spirit was upon him.

And it had been revealed to him by the Holy Spirit that he should not see death before he had seen the Lord’s Christ. And inspired by the Spirit he came into the temple; and when the parents brought in the child Jesus, to do for him according to the custom of the law, he took him up in his arms and blessed God and said,

“Lord, now lettest thou thy servant depart in peace, according to thy word;

for mine eyes have seen thy salvation which thou hast prepared in the presence of all peoples, a light for revelation to the Gentiles,

and for glory to thy people Israel.”


And his father and his mother marveled at what was said about him; and Simeon blessed them and said to Mary his mother,


“Behold, this child is set for the fall and rising of many in Israel, and for a sign that is spoken against that thoughts out of many hearts may be revealed.”

(We do the Sign of the Cross      Fides,   Spes   a nd   Caritas     which both opens and closes the sequence of prayer)

Now his parents went to Jerusalem every year at the feast of the Passover.


And when he was twelve years old, they went up according to custom; and when the feast was ended, as they were returning, the boy Jesus stayed behind in Jerusalem.


His parents did not know it, but supposing him to be in the company they went a day’s journey, and they sought him among their kinsfolk and acquaintances; and when they did not find him, they returned to Jerusalem, seeking him.


After three days they found him in the temple, sitting among the teachers, listening to them and asking them questions; and all who heard him were amazed at his understanding and his answers.

And when they saw him they were astonished; and his mother said to him,


“Son, why have you treated us so?

Behold, your father and I have been looking for you anxiously.”


And he said to them,

“How is it that you sought me?

Did you not know that I must be in my Father’s house?”


And they did not understand the saying which he spoke to them. And he went down with them and came to Nazareth, and was obedient to them; and his mother kept all these things in her heart.


And Jesus increased in wisdom and in stature, and in favor with God and man.
