The First Joyful Mystery
Lord, I ask You for the courage to follow Your Will no matter how challenging it may seem. Like Mary, I want to put my faith in Your divine plan because it ultimately leads me to Your heavenly kingdom.
The Second Joyful Mystery
FRUIT: LOVE OF NEIGHBOR
Lord, You have given each of us unique and powerful talents. May we recognize our God-given abilities and go out into the world doing Your Will as Mary did when She visited Her cousin, Elizabeth.
The Third Joyful Mystery
FRUIT: POVERTY OF SPIRIT
Lord, You came into this world in a most unexpected way. May I always look for You in prayer and see You acting in my life even when it is in ways I do not expect.
The Fourth Joyful Mystery
THE PRESENTATION IN THE TEMPLE
Lord, fill my heart with a longing to act devoutly and righteously by devoting myself to a life of active prayer. May I have the faith and hope in the many promises You have made to me and the Catholic Church
The Fifth Joyful Mystery
THE FINDING IN THE TEMPLE
Lord, may I always look for You in my prayers, actions, words, and thoughts. May everything I do be in an effort to move into a deeper communion and friendship with You. May the thought of losing Your grace strengthen me in resisting the temptation to sin.
