The Luminous Mysteries If


The Luminous Mysteries

If you like to pray a "scriptural rosary" you can go here to find a selection of texts to go with the new luminous mysteries. This comes from a site managed by Mr. Martin Ford, and I quote the luminous mysteries text below for the sake of further dissemination in the community. However, I emphasize this is not my work and we have Mr. Ford to thank for this great prayer helper. Found via "The new Gasparian, " thank you Father Keyes for the reference.

Texts for the Luminous Mysteries compiled by Mr. Martin Ford

The Baptism of Our Lord
1) In those days John the Baptist came…saying, "Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is near."
2) "I baptize you with water for repentance. But after me will come one who is more powerful than I.
3) He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and with fire.
4) His winnowing fork is in his hand, and he will clear his threshing floor, gathering his wheat into the barn and burning up the chaff with unquenchable fire."
5) Jesus came from Galilee to the Jordan to be baptized by John.
6) John tried to deter him, saying, "I need to be baptized by you, and do you come to me?"
7) Jesus replied, "Let it be so now; it is proper for us to do this to fulfill all righteousness."
8) Then John consented.
9) As soon as Jesus was baptized, he went up out of the water.
10) At that moment heaven was opened and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and lighting on him.

The Wedding of Cana
1) On the third day a wedding took place at Cana in Galilee.
2) When the wine was gone, Jesus' mother said to him, "They have no more wine."
3) "Dear woman, why do you involve me? My time has not yet come."
4) His mother said to the servants, "Do whatever he tells you."
5) Jesus said to the servants, "Fill the jars with water"; so they filled them to the brim
6) "Now draw some out and take it to the master of the banquet."
7) They did so, and the master of the banquet tasted the water that had been turned into wine.
8) He did not realize where it had come from, though the servants who had drawn the water knew.
9) "Everyone brings out the choice wine first and then the cheaper wine after the guests have had too much to drink; but you have saved the best till now."
10) He thus revealed his glory, and his disciples put their faith in him.

The Proclamation of Christ's Kingdom
1) After John was put in prison, Jesus went into Galilee, proclaiming the good news of God.
2) The people living in darkness have seen a great light; on those living in the land of the shadow of death a light has dawned."
3) "The time has come," he said. "The kingdom of God is near. Repent and believe the good news!"
4) As Jesus was walking beside the Sea of Galilee, he saw two brothers, Simon called Peter and his brother Andrew.
5) When he had finished speaking, he said to Simon, "Put out into deep water, and let down the nets for a catch."
6) Simon answered, "Master, we've worked hard all night and haven't caught anything. But because you say so, I will let down the nets."
7) When they had done so, they caught such a large number of fish that their nets began to break.
8) So they signaled their partners in the other boat to come and help them, and they came and filled both boats so full that they began to sink.
9) “Go away from me, Lord; I am a sinful man!"
10) “Don't be afraid; from now on you will catch men." So they pulled their boats up on shore, left everything and followed him.

The Transfiguration
1) After six days Jesus took with him Peter, James and John the brother of James, and led them up a high mountain by themselves.
2) There he was transfigured before them. His face shone like the sun, and his clothes became as white as the light.
3) Just then there appeared before them Moses and Elijah, talking with Jesus. Peter said to Jesus, "Lord, it is good for us to be here. If you wish, I will put up three shelters--one for you, one for Moses and one for Elijah."
4) While he was still speaking, a bright cloud enveloped them, and a voice from the cloud said, "This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased. Listen to him!"
5) When the disciples heard this, they fell facedown to the ground, terrified.
6) Jesus came and touched them. "Get up," he said. "Don't be afraid." When they looked up, they saw no one except Jesus.
7) "Don't tell anyone what you have seen, until the Son of Man has been raised from the dead."
8) The disciples asked him, "Why then do the teachers of the law say that Elijah must come first?"
9) "To be sure, Elijah comes and will restore all things. But I tell you, Elijah has already come, and they did not recognize him, but have done to him everything they wished.
10) Jesus replied, “In the same way the Son of Man is going to suffer at their hands." Then the disciples understood that he was talking to them about John the Baptist.

The Last Supper
1)So the disciples did as Jesus had directed them and prepared the Passover. When evening came, Jesus was reclining at the table with the Twelve.
2) And while they were eating, he said, "I tell you the truth, one of you will betray me."
3) They were very sad and began to say to him one after the other, "Surely not I, Lord?" Jesus replied,
4) "The one who has dipped his hand into the bowl with me will betray me. The Son of Man will go just as it is written about him.
5) But woe to that man who betrays the Son of Man! It would be better for him if he had not been born."
6) While they were eating, Jesus took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to his disciples.
7) Take and eat; this is my body."
8) Then he took the cup, gave thanks and offered it to them.
9) "Drink from it, all of you. This is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins.
10) I tell you, I will not drink of this fruit of the vine from now on until that day when I drink it anew with you in my Father's kingdom."
