Explaining The Holy Rosary (12) – The Luminous Mysteries (I).

Luminous Mysteries

Reveal Light Of Jesus,

Bringing Peace In Your Life.

“As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world.”

-John 9:5

Luminous mysteries

What a gift the Luminous Mysteries of the Rosary are. Meditating on these Mysteries of Light bring even deeper understanding to the public life of Jesus.

They fill in the blanks between the childhood of Jesus and His suffering and death on the cross.
Therefore they beautifully compliment the traditional Catholic Rosary prayers of St. Dominic.

As you increase in this depth of knowledge of the life of Jesus, you will also find greater peace within your own life by meditating upon the Luminous mysteries of the rosary…

To delve deeper into the public life of Jesus, the individual Luminous Mysteries have been conveniently listed for you below…

Baptism Of Jesus

“John was in the desert baptizing, and preaching the baptism of penance, unto remission of sins.”

-Mark 1:4

When meditating on the Baptism of Jesus, it may be useful to look at a picture of John the Baptist baptizing Jesus in the River Jordan. Or even listen to some uplifting music.
Be mindful that the fruit of this mystery is living your baptismal promises and recall this scene as you meditate…
John the Baptist was Jesus’ cousin and the son of Elizabeth.

Jesus and John had a special relationship that began when his mother and Mary were both pregnant with them.
John leapt in his mother’s womb when Mary, came to visit her.
John preached throughout the river Jordan. He encouraged people to get baptized to cleanse them of their sins to prepare for the coming of Jesus.
He prophecized that the Messiah would come and baptize with fire and the Holy Spirit.
Seeing Jesus John exclaimed, “behold the lamb of God.”

Sometimes St. John the Baptist is shown holding a banner that says “Ecce agnus Dei” which means behold the lamb of God.
John at first refused to baptize him.
But Jesus told him 

“Let it be so now, for by us must all righteousness be fulfilled.” 

And John then baptized him.
When Jesus came out of the water, the voice of the Lord was heard as the Holy Spirit descended upon him in the form of a dove.
The voice of God said, 

“This is my beloved Son, in who I am well pleased.”

Then after being filled with the Holy Spirit, Jesus went out into the desert where He fasted and prayed for 40 days.
