The Second Joyful Mystery- The Visitation
Mary left Nazareth to go and help her cousin Elizabeth very soon after the Angel Gabriel had visited her. On seeing her beloved cousin Mary, the baby in Elizabeth’s womb leapt for joy.
These are some thoughts about the Second Joyful Mystery, The Visitation.
Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name: Thy kingdom come: Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread: and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation: but deliver us from evil. Amen.
Mary, your cousin Elizabeth was also with child.
Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee, blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death. Amen
Mary, you journeyed far to visit Elizabeth.
Mary, you greeted Elizabeth; with the Holy Spirit.
“Blessed are you among women”, Elizabeth said.
Elizabeth’s unborn baby leaped for joy within her.
Elizabeth felt so blessed!
Elizabeth’s baby felt so blessed!
Mary, I too am blessed ‘cause you’re my mother.
Mary, help me to be holy like you.
Jesus, I adore You for You are God!
Glory Be To The Father
Glory be to the Father, and to the Son and to the Holy Ghost.As it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be, world without end.
O my Jesus, forgive us our sins, save us from the fires of hell, and lead all souls to Heaven, especially those in most need of Your Mercy.
