Scriptural Glorious Rosary Myteries

The glorious Ascension of Jesus offers believers the hope of one day joining Jesus in heaven. This event in the life of Jesus is the second of the Glorious Mysteries of the Rosary.

A scriptural Rosary joined with the Rosary prayers and meditations on the Rosary will help you attain this lofty concept of Christian hope'

Below is the biblical account Ascension of Jesus...

  • At length he appeared to the eleven as they were at table: and he upbraided them with their incredulity and hardness of heart, because they did not believe them who had seen him after he was risen again.
  • And he said to them: Go ye into the whole world, and preach the gospel to every creature. He that believeth and is baptized, shall be saved: but he that believeth not shall be condemned. -Mark 16:14-16
  • He commanded them, that they should not depart from Jerusalem, but should wait for the promise of the Father, which you have heard (saith he) by my mouth. For John indeed baptized with water, but you shall be baptized with the Holy Ghost, not many days hence.
  • They therefore who were come together, asked him, saying: Lord, wilt thou at this time restore again the kingdom to Israel?
  • But he said to them: It is not for you to know the times or moments, which the Father hath put in his own power: But you shall receive the power of the Holy Ghost coming upon you, and you shall be witnesses unto me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea, and Samaria, and even to the uttermost part of the earth. -Acts 1:4-8
  • And he said to them: These are the words which I spoke to you, while I was yet with you, that all things must needs be fulfilled, which are written in the law of Moses, and in the prophets, and in the psalms, concerning me. Then he opened their understanding, that they might understand the scriptures.
  • And he said to them: Thus it is written, and thus it behoved Christ to suffer, and to rise again from the dead, the third day: And that penance and remission of sins should be preached in his name, unto all nations, beginning at Jerusalem. And you are witnesses of these things. -Luke 24:44-47 And these signs shall follow them that believe: In my name they shall cast out devils: they shall speak with new tongues. They shall take up serpents; and if they shall drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them: they shall lay their hands upon the sick, and they shall recover. -Mark 16:17-18
  • And he led them out as far as Bethania: and lifting up his hands, he blessed them.
  • And it came to pass, whilst he blessed them, he departed from them, and was carried up to heaven. -Luke 44:50-51
  • And when he had said these things, while they looked on, he was raised up: and a cloud received him out of their sight. And while they were beholding him going up to heaven, behold two men stood by them in white garments.
  • Who also said: Ye men of Galilee, why stand you looking up to heaven? This Jesus who is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come, as you have seen him going into heaven. -Acts 1:9-11
  • And the Lord Jesus, after he had spoken to them, was taken up into heaven, and sitteth on the right hand of God. But they going forth preached everywhere: the Lord working withal, and confirming the word with signs that followed. -Mark 16:19-20

-Romans 5:2

Scriptural Glorious Rosary Myteries

Living a holy life on earth, gives you the right to hope for an eternal reward. Through the merits of Jesus' passion and death, you can hope that your sins will be forgiven and that you will receive the graces to live a holy life and die a happy death.

As your faith in Jesus deepens, you will naturally place all your hope in Him.

Jesus should be the foundation of all your happiness and peace because He is merciful and fulfills His promises as in the Ascension of Jesus.

The Ascension of Jesus highlights the cardinal virtue of hope.

The true concept of Catholic hope is recognizing that on account of Jesus' merits, your sins will be forgiven, you will receive the grace to live a holy life, you will persevere in the faith until death, and finally you will be rewarded when you join Jesus and His Holy Mother Mary in heaven.

The Ascension of Jesus and the Assumption of Mary let you know that they are there waiting for you to join them.

There are excellent numerous books written to help you with your spiritural excercises, one being The Spiritual Exercises by St. Ignatius of Loyola, that we highly recommend.

Amen.
