Pray | The Luminous Mysteries

The Rosary is a contemplative, Scripture-based prayer that focuses on Christ and the Blessed Mother

The Rosary is a Scripture-based prayer that focuses on the lives of Christ and Mary through meditation on the different mysteries. The repetition of prayers in the Rosary are meant to lead a person into restful and contemplative prayer related to each mystery.

St. John Paul II introduced the Luminous Mysteries in October 2002 at the start of the Year of the Rosary. These mysteries, which focus on the public ministry of Jesus Christ, traditionally are prayed on Thursdays:

The Baptism of Christ in the Jordan

“After Jesus was baptized, He came up from the water and behold, the heavens were opened [for Him], and He saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove [and] coming upon Him. And a voice came from the heavens, saying, ‘This is my beloved Son, with whom I am well pleased.’” - Matthew 3:16-17

Fruit of the mystery: Openness to the Holy Spirit

The Wedding Feast at Cana

“On the third day there was a wedding in Cana in Galilee, and the mother of Jesus was there. Jesus and His disciples were also invited to the wedding. When the wine ran short, the mother of Jesus said to Him, ‘They have no wine.’ [And] Jesus said to her, ‘Woman, how does your concern affect me? My hour has not yet come.’ His mother said to the servers, ‘Do whatever He tells you.’” - John 2:1-5

Fruit of the mystery: To Jesus through Mary

Jesus’ Proclamation of the Coming of the Kingdom of God

“’This is the time of fulfillment. The kingdom of God is at hand. Repent, and believe in the gospel.’” - Mark 1:15

Fruit of the mystery: Conversion

The Transfiguration

“After six days Jesus took Peter, James, and John his brother, and led them up a high mountain by themselves. And He was transfigured before them; His face shone like the sun and His clothes became white as light.” - Matthew 17:1-2

Fruit of the mystery: Desire for holiness

The Institution of the Eucharist

“While they were eating, Jesus took bread, said the blessing, broke it, and giving it to His disciples said, ‘Take and eat; this is my body.’” - Matthew 26:26

Fruit of the mystery: Adoration
