THE LUMINOUS MYSTERIES

Prayed on Thursdays. Could also be prayed on feastdays pertaining to each mystery (i.e. The Feast of the Baptism of The Lord or The Feast of the Transfiguration).

The Holy Grail




The Baptism of Jesus

Imagine Jesus wading out into the Jordan River, to be baptized by his cousin, John. This mystery commemorates the inauguration of Jesus' public ministry.

Possible Intentions:

  • That we may be faithful to the Gospel.

  • For an increase in vocations
  • For all those who are discerning what their vocation should be

The Baptism of The Lord




The Wedding At Cana

Imagine Jesus speaking to the servants at the wedding at Cana in Galilee, where he turns water into wine. This is the first public miracle that Jesus performed. Though they must have been baffled at His request, they heeded what his Mother had said, and did whatever He told them to do.

Possible Intentions:

  • For the grace to follow closely in the footsteps of Jesus, doing whatever He asks, though it be baffling to our senses and intellect
  • For an increased devotion to our Mother Mary, who always leads us closer to Jesus
  • For the gift of being open to the possibility of the Miraculous
  • For the willingness to see the everyday transformed into the glorious through our humble obediance
  • For the grace of obedience to God
  • That we may gain a deeper knowledge of the depth of Jesus compassion and see that He cares about us in every detail of our lives
  • For all who struggle with trust in God's care





The Proclamation of the Kingdom of God

Imagine following Jesus as He travels throughout the towns and cities Galilee in Judea, proclaiming the Good News of God's Kingdom and helping the poor, healing the sick and welcoming sinners, such as we. Hear with new ears the Gospel of Love.

Possible Intentions:

  • To obtain the grace of complete conversion
  • To pray for the conversion of poor sinners
  • To ask for the graces necessary to proclaim the Gospel by our lives
  • To pray for all those involved in the missions, at home or abroad, as they travel about proclaiming the Good News
  • That all men might hear the Gospel and receive it with open hearts, turning toward God and a life of prayer and service in love
  • For a deeper understanding of God's law
  • For a deeper understanding of Sacred Scripture
  • For the grace to go from the Gospel to life, and from life to the Gospel
Christ Pantocrator




The Transfiguration

Imagine Jesus transformed in glory, His face and robes of shining light, as He converses familiarly with Moses and Elijah. His dear friends rejoice and fall to the ground in awe. Reflect on this as a mirror of spiritual experience. Imagine Jesus' conversation with the greatest of prophets and his tenderness towards His friends.

Possible Intentions:

  • To obtain the rich grace of a holy fear of God
  • For the grace to abide in darkness, knowing that the revelation of Christ in His glory is a gift, rather than something that we can do, bring about or earn.
  • To recall to mind that while "mountaintop" experiences may come and go, Jesus abides always
  • For those who seek the face of God in contemplation, that they may be faithful to their call
  • For the grace to be faithful in seeking union with God
  • For the grace to be faithful to the pathe of contempative prayer
  • That all men may see Jesus revealed as God of Light and Mercy, dazzling in His beauty

Mount Tabor




The Institution of the Holy Eucharist Imagine Jesus at supper with His friends in celebration of Passover, a Passover whose significance is truly know only to Him. Knowing He is about to suffer and die, and to be broken for them as a sacrifice, He institutes the Holy Eucharist. Reflect that in this way He enables us to share in His sacrifice, He unites Himself closely with us, He feeds us indeed, with "finest wheat".

Possible Intentions:

  • To offer up a sacrifice of praise and thanksgiving
  • To offer thanks for this priceless gift
  • To obtain the grace of a great Love For Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament
  • To obtain the grace of frequent communion
  • To ask to be led into a deeper understanding of Jesus' Real Presence
  • To offer reparations for the many insults and blasphemise Jesus suffers every day in the Most Holy Sacrament
  • To love Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament
  • To make an act of Spiritual Communion
  • That the Most Blessed Sacrament be everywhere adored, worshipped and glorified
  • That we be delivered from tepidity in our devotion to the Blessed Sacrament
  • For all those who abuse or hate the Blessed Sacrament, that God forgives them, for they do not know what they do
