Luminous Mysteries+.jpg

Prayed on Thursdays

The public life of Our Lord reveals what the reign of God's kingdom is like - both in the miracles He worked and in His preaching.  We meditate on these mysteries asking Our Lady to help us to allow His light to shine in our darkness.

The Baptism of Jesus

And when Jesus was baptized, He went up immediately from the water, and behold, the Heavens were opened and He saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove.

Meditate on: Openness to the Holy Spirit


The Wedding Feast at Cana

"[And] Jesus said to her, 'Woman, how does your concern affect me?  My hour has not yet come.'"  His mother said to the servants, "Do whatever He tells you."  This, the first of His signs, Jesus did at Cana in Galilee. 

John 2:4-5, 11

The Transfiguration
