-Acts 1:14

joyful mysteries
The Glorious Mysteries are the crown of Jesus' triumphs. How exhilarating to know that Jesus is God and that He rose from the dead thereby destroying death and making you an heir to Heaven.

Reminding yourself of these glorious events in the Glorious Mysteries as you pray the Rosary prayer will keep your faith alive and strong. The Catholic rosary prayers are concluded with these final glorious events. Jesus resurrection is the foundation of Christian belief.

After the Resurrection of Jesus, He ascended into Heaven. There He now sits at the right hand of God the Father.

He sent the Holy Spirit to strengthen humankind.

He took His Mother, body and soul up to Heaven then crowned her as queen of heaven and earth.

To delve deeper into the glorious life of Jesus and for meditations on the rosary, the individual Glorious Mysteries have been conveniently listed for you below...

The Resurrection
When Peter arrived he entered the tomb. There he saw that the linens that Jesus' was wrapped in were on the floor but that the cloth that had covered Jesus' face was folded neatly and placed somewhere separate from the other linens. At that moment both Peter and John believed that Jesus had risen as He said He would read more...

The Ascension
As Jesus was blessing them, He went up into a cloud and vanished from their sight. Suddenly two angels were in their midst and asked them, "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" read more...

Descent of the Holy Spirit
Suddenly a mighty wind came up and blew into the room. Then above each of the apostles heads and that of Mary appeared a tongue of fire. "And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit" read more...

The Assumption
Mary was conceived without sin and Jesus would not allow her body to decay. The devil had no power over her. Jesus took her, body and soul up to Heaven where He had a place prepared for her read more...

Coronation of Mary
Mary received the promised "never fading crown of glory" because her life so perfectly resembled that of her Son's and because she shared in all His sufferings. As a reward for her holiness and perfection of virtues, Jesus gave her dominion over the Angels and the Saints by crowning her Queen of heaven and earth read more...

Luminous mysteries

Mary shared in Jesus' joys and sorrows. Her "yes" to God brought Jesus into the world and her presence at the foot of the cross united her to His act of redemption.

She fulfilled the prophesy in the first book of the Bible.

A prophecy as old as mankind...

"I will put enmities between thee and the woman, and thy seed and her seed: she shall crush thy head, and thou shalt lie in wait for her heel." -Genesis 3:15

By Mary's seed, Jesus, she crushed the head of the serpent, Satan. With Jesus, Mary overcame Satan.

Just as she shared in His joys and sorrow it is truly fitting that she share in His triumphs and glories by being exalted with Him in Heaven in the Glorious Myteries.

Luminous mysteries

Having a clearer picture of the scene and significance of the Glorious Mysteries will greatly enhance your meditation.

Remember the means by which the Rosary prayer brings about such inner peace is the use of both mental and vocal prayer.

This is how your mind internalizes the events in the life of Jesus.
