The Joyful Mysteries of the Rosary

Meditations from True Life in God

1. The Annunciation (Lk 1.26-38)

“...the Spirit with Me and the Father said: ‘Mary full of grace, We are with You; We will hide none of the secrets from You, Our Breath will be Your breath, pure emanation of Our Glory, Mary Our image of Our Goodness, We give you Our Peace in Your Heart, in this perfect Heart I, the Son shall triumph; Our Heart will be Your Heart, a burning furnace of divine love, Our Soul1 will be Your Soul (...) Our Spirit will be Your Spirit; yes, for anyone who is joined to Us is one spirit with Us (...) this is the One whom We so highly favoured’...”(25.3.96)

1 Soul should be understood as life as in Lk 9:24

2. The Visitation (Lk 1.39-55)

“...your whole being will be lifted and your heart will be exulted and in rapture when your eyes will be unveiled to see the Blessed Heart of the blessed hearts, the Most Holy of saints, the Incomparable Heart, burning with unlimited love, a fire alight and so bright; then, My friend, you will understand what Virtue is, and how in this Virtuous Virginal Heart, I, God, became God-Man, you will see the Mother of your Saviour, Mother of the prophets...” (25.3.96)

3. The Nativity (Mt 2.1-12 ; Lk 2.1-20)

“it is in that Heart, in that Abyss of grace, I exercised My power ~ the Author of heaven and earth, the Author of grace found His heaven in heaven, His grace in grace, to come in the condition of a slave; I came to Prodigious Humility1 to serve and not to be served; I, the Redeemer of all mankind, the promised Messiah, came to the perfect image of My Sacred Heart to share the sorrows, the joys, the sufferings, the martyrdom, the wonders, the betrayals, the agonies, the scourging, the piercing, and the crucifixion; together Our Hearts atoned; ...” (25.3.96)

1 Our Blessed Mother

4. The Presentation (Lk 2.22-38)

“today, I am looking down from heaven to count the clean hearts: – what am I to say? Was My Sacrifice in vain? My Spirit is broken ... I sacrificed Myself for you in order to set you free from all wickedness and to purify a people so that it could be My very Own and would have no ambition except to do good; I have done everything so that you could be justified by grace and become heirs to My Kingdom; I have been intensively teaching you all and with great compassion, My Law, renewing you with the Holy Spirit of Grace, even to repeating Myself invariably; I now teach, giving you instructions in the way of Holy Wisdom; it is not a new doctrine but the same one of the Bride,1 in which you can rely on; you all belong to My House; since I have bought My House with My Own Blood and I have shed every drop of My Blood for everyone ... you are My House2... ” (20.1.01)

1 The Church
2 Heb. 3:6

5. The Finding of Jesus in the Temple (Lk 2.40-51)

“come, you who err still in this wilderness, saying: ‘I have sought My Redeemer but have not found Him;’ find Me, My beloved, in purity of heart, by loving Me without self-interest; find Me in holiness, in the abandonment I desire of you; find Me by observing My Commandments; find Me by replacing evil with love, find Me in simplicity of heart; sin no more; cease in doing evil; learn to do good; search for justice; help the oppressed; let this wilderness and this aridity exult; let your tepidness enflame into an ardent flame; relinquish your apathy and replace it by fervour; do all these things so that you may be able to say: ‘I have sought my Redeemer and I have found Him’, He was near me all the time but in my darkness I failed to see Him; O Glory be to God! Blessed be our Lord! how could I have been so blind?’ I shall then remind you to keep and treasure My Principles, so that you may live.” (8.7.89)
