The First Glorious Mystery

The Resurrection

The Resurrection

In this mystery we contemplate our Divine Redeemer rising through His own power
on the third day. His body is in a state of glory: His wounds are now tokens of
His triumph over death! Let us ask Our Lady of Fatima for a staunch hope in the
triumph of Her Immaculate Heart and a jubilant enthusiasm in the
anticipation of Her kingdom.

OUR LADY’S ELEVENTH PROMISE
You shall obtain all you ask of me
by the recitation of the Rosary.

In the end of the sabbath, as it began to dawn toward the first day of the week, came Mary Magdalene and the other Mary to see the sepulchre. And, behold, there was a great earthquake: for the angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat upon it. And the angel answered and said unto the women: “Fear not ye! For I know that ye seek Jesus, which was crucified. He is not here. For he is risen, as he said”. (Matt 28,1-6)


 

The Second Glorious Mystery

The Ascension

The Ascension

In this mystery we contemplate the Just One withdrawing from His disciples
and ascending into Heaven forty days after His resurrection: it is the concluding
work of redemption. By this final elevation of Our Lord’s human nature into the
condition of Divine Glory, let us ask the Most Holy Virgin for the ultimate
exaltation of Holy Mother Church and Christian civilisation.

OUR LADY’S TWELTH PROMISE
All those who propagate the Holy Rosary
shall be aided by me in their necessities.

And as they are speaking these things, Jesus Himself stood in the midst of them, and saith to them, “Peace to you”; being amazed, and becoming affrighted, they were thinking themselves to see a spirit. And he said to them, “Why are ye troubled? and wherefore do reasonings come up in your hearts? see my hands and my feet, that I am he; handle me and see, because a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as ye see me having.” And having said this, he showed to them the hands and the feet. … “And, lo, I do send the promise of my Father upon you, but ye — abide ye in the city of Jerusalem till ye be clothed with power from on high.” And he led them forth without — unto Bethany, and having lifted up His hands he did bless them, and it came to pass, in His blessing them, he was parted from them, and was borne up to the heaven. (Luke 24,36-51)


 

The Third Glorious Mystery

The Descent of the Holy Spirit

The Decent of the Holy Spirit

In this mystery we contemplate Our Lord fulfilling His words to the Apostles:
“I will ask the Father, and He shall give you another Paraclete,
that He may abide with you forever” (John 14:16). The Apostles, gathered around
Our Lady in the Cenacle, are now so filled with the Holy Spirit that they
seem drunk (Acts 2:13).
Let us ask the Spouse of the Holy Spirit to say but a word and thus
transform our weak, lukewarm and sinful souls.

OUR LADY’S THIRTEENTH PROMISE
I have obtained from my Divine Son that all the advocates of
the Rosary shall have for intercessors the entire celestial court
during their life and at the hour of their death.

And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting. And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance. (Acts 2,1-4)


 

The Fourth Glorious Mystery

The Assumption

The Assumption

In this mystery we contemplate the Virgin Mary being taken body and soul
into Heaven by God amidst the rejoicing of the Angels. Let us ask our celestial Mother
to fill us with faith and to make us pure and strong, so that we may fight worthily for
Her on earth and rejoice with Her in Heaven forever.

OUR LADY’S FOURTEENTH PROMISE
All who recite the Rosary are my sons,
and brothers of my Son, Jesus Christ.

Blessed art thou of the most high God above all the women upon the earth; and blessed be the Lord God, which hath created the heavens and the earth, which hath directed thee to the cutting off of the head of the chief of our enemies. … Thou hast done all these things by thine hand: thou hast done much good to Israel, and God is pleased therewith: blessed be thou of the Almighty Lord for evermore. And all the people said, So be it. (Jdt 13,18-20; 15,10)


 

The Fifth Glorious Mystery

The Coronation

The Coronation

In this mystery we contemplate the Daughter of God, the Mother of God,
the Spouse of God, addressed in the words of the Canticle of Canticles (Ch 4)
“Come: thou shalt be crowned,” and made empress and mistress of all creation.
Let us ask the Queen that, from the height of glory on which She was placed,
She will be for us a Mother of Mercy, raising us when we fall, loving us at every
moment, so that, like the angels, we may faithfully serve Her in all things.

OUR LADY’S FIFTEENTH PROMISE
Devotion to my Rosary
is a great sign of predestination.

There appeared a great sign in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars. (Rev 12,1)

Let us trust in Mary, Let us call to Her, let us love Her, let us confide in Her, because She gives Her all to us. We have a Mother in Heaven who is also a Queen; thus we need to turn to Her with full faith and hopefulness. If we ask for something while praying the Holy Rosary, it will be granted to us. Ask Her for the gift of prayer, a prayer of the heart, said only for love, a love for Her and Jesus. Let us also ask for a consistency of prayer, to always be joined to Her Heart, and therefore to the Heart of Jesus.
