Joyful Mysteries - Reflections
©2011 James Dacey, Jr. SFO
Today we pray the Joyful Mysteries, let us take a moment and reflect on the central (focus) on each mystery. We have been blessed with such a magnificent, celebrating reminder of the great, wonderful, blessed JOY that were part of our Lord’s childhood. Today we can pray on the Incarnation, as Jesus enters into this world to be with us, to save us. We are reminded again and again throughout the entire Rosary, that nothing is impossible with God.
The Joyful Mysteries
1. The Annunciation (Humility)
There are many times in our lives when we will experience “Annunciation” moments. Let us ask for God the grace to have an open ear and an open heart to His voice; and like Mary may we humbly say YES.
2. The Visitation (Charity)
We all have family and friends in our lives that need help, or someone to care for them, or someone who wishes another would reach out to them. How do we address that when we clearly know they are need?
3. The Nativity of Christ (Love of God)
Christmas is no doubt one of the most joyous times of the year, and to a believer Christmas is celebrated all year praising and worshipping our Lord. Do you celebrate Jesus being born into your heart today?
4. The Presentation (Purity)
When we have fully surrendered our hearts to our Lord, and chose Him above everything else, it is then that His presence and love will grow within. In your heart do you hold dreams of giving and serving our Lord in magnificent ways?
5. The Finding of the Christ Child in the Temple (Obedience)
Our lives should be spent searching for Him, we are all called by name by Him, our Spirit hear His voice, we must not stop seeking Him till we have found Him. Do you live a life consumed by seeking Him?
“Jesus, I trust in You.”
