Glorious Mysteries

Prayed on Wednesdays and Sundays. There are five Glorious Mysteries:  the Resurrection of Jesus, the Ascension of Jesus, the Descent of the Holy Spirit, the Assumption of Mary in Heaven, the Coronation of Mary. We enter into the triumph of our Lord Jesus in his resurrection and the birth of the Church in all of its glory with Mother Mary as Queen of Heaven!

Opening Prayers                                                           Video Version
(1) Make the Sign of the Cross while saying: In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen. Make your intentions.

(2) While holding on to the crucifix, say the “Apostles’ Creed“:
I believe in God, the Father Almighty, Creator of heaven and earth; and in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord; Who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died and was buried. He descended to the dead. 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 thence, 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.

(3) Say the “Our Prayer“:
Our Father, Who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name; Thy kingdom come; Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen.

(4) Say “Hail Mary” (3 times):
Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee; Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death, Amen.

(5) Say the “Glory Be”:
Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit. As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

“Do not be amazed! You seek  Jesus of Nazareth, the crucified. He has been raised; he is not  here. Behold, the place where they laid him.  But go and tell his disciples and Peter, ‘He is going before you to Galilee; there you will see him, as he told you.’ “Mark 16:6-7.

Hail, Holy Queen, Mother of Mercy, our life, our sweetness, and our hope, to thee do we cry, poor banished children of Eve; to thee do we send up our sighs, mourning and weeping in this valley of tears; turn, then, most gracious Advocate, thine eyes of mercy towards us, and after this, our exile, show unto us the blessed fruit of thy womb, Jesus.
