Scriptural Rosary
The Annunciation
Mary Mother Of Jesus

"Behold the handmaid of the Lord;
be it done to me according to thy word."
-Luke 1:38

Catholic Rosary Myteries The account of the Annunciation is one of the most awe inspiring and mysterious Biblical accounts.

Just imagine a young Jewish woman, pure and beautiful receives a most noble heavenly visitor, the Archangel Gabriel. Who is delivering a message that is even more amazing.

Below is an exact account of The Annunciation...

  • "And in the sixth month, the angel Gabriel was sent from God into a city of Galilee, called Nazareth, To a virgin espoused to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David; and the virgin's name was Mary. And the angel being come in, said unto her: Hail, full of grace, the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women. Who having heard, was troubled at his saying, and thought with herself what manner of salutation this should be. And the angel said to her: Fear not, Mary, for thou hast found grace with God.
  • Behold thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and shalt bring forth a son; and thou shalt call his name Jesus. He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the most High; and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of David his father; and he shall reign in the house of Jacob for ever. And of his kingdom there shall be no end. And Mary said to the angel: How shall this be done, because I know not man? And the angel answering, said to her: The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the most High shall overshadow thee. And therefore also the Holy which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God.
  • And behold thy cousin Elizabeth, she also hath conceived a son in her old age; and this is the sixth month with her that is called barren: Because no word shall be impossible with God. And Mary said: Behold the handmaid of the Lord; be it done to me according to thy word. And the angel departed from her." -Luke 1:26-38

Mary Teaches You How
To Conform Your Will
To God's Will

"For whosoever shall do the will of God,
he is my brother, and my sister, and mother"
-Mark 3:35

Catholic Rosary Mysteries

Being able to have a glimpse into Mary's deep humility should inspire you to strive to conform your will to that of God's will.

Imitate her willingness to do God's will and your life will be permeated with serenity.

This gift will be yours if you conform your will to that of God's.

Even Jesus himself conformed his will to God's will to the very last measure...

"Again the second time, he went and prayed, saying:
My Father, if this chalice may not pass away,
but I must drink it, thy will be done."
-Matthew 26:42

There are many books written on the subject of trusting in God and conforming your will to His.

Among them is the very inspiring book by Walter Ciszek, S.J, He Leadeth Me. Fr. Ciszek writes about his 23 years in Soviet labor camps and shows how his dependency on God's will was the only way he survived.

This Bible passage for the Annunciation is taken from the timeless Douay-Rheims Catholic Bible.

If you are looking for a more modern language version our recommendation would be the St. Ignatius Press Bible.
