The Joyful Mysteries

I made this Rosary page because I find it easier to think about the subject of each decade if I have pictures to remind me. I hope it will help you, too. The Joyful Mysteries are said on Mondays and Saturdays.

1. The Annunciation

“Don’t be afraid, Mary,” the angel told her, “for you have found favor with God! You will conceive and give birth to a son, and you will name him Jesus” (Luke 1:30-31; NLT).

2. The Visitation

A few days later Mary hurried to the hill country of Judea, to the town where Zechariah lived. She entered the house and greeted Elizabeth. At the sound of Mary’s greeting, Elizabeth’s child leaped within her, and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit. Elizabeth gave a glad cry and exclaimed to Mary, “God has blessed you above all women, and your child is blessed” (Luke 1:39-42; NLT).

3. The Nativity

She gave birth to her first child, a son. She wrapped him snugly in strips of cloth and laid him in a manger, because there was no lodging available for them (Luke 2:7; NLT).

4. The Presentation in the Temple

Then it was time for their purification offering, as required by the law of Moses after the birth of a child; so his parents took him to Jerusalem to present him to the Lord (Luke 2:22; NLT).

5. The Finding of the Child Jesus in the Temple

Three days later they finally discovered him in the Temple, sitting among the religious teachers, listening to them and asking questions. All who heard him were amazed at his understanding and his answers (Luke 2:46-7; NLT).
