First Luminous Mystery: BAPTISM IN THE JORDAN

 

Catholics across the country are praying this mystery and calling upon our Blessed Mother with both a spirit of humility and a commitment to justice.

Please join us in prayer now.


Jesus begins his public ministry being baptized by John.

Our Father . . .

For our sake he made him to be sin who did not know sin, so that we might become the righteousness of God in him. 2 Cor 5:21
Hail Mary . . .

He went throughout (the) whole region of the Jordan, proclaiming a baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sins, as it is written in . . . Isaiah: “A voice of one crying out in the desert: ‘Prepare the way of the Lord, make straight his paths.’” Lk 3:3
Hail Mary . . .

And the crowds asked him, “What then should we do?” He said to them in reply, “Whoever has two cloaks should share with the person who has none. And whoever has food should do likewise.” Lk 3:10-11
Hail Mary . . .

Jesus also had been baptized . . . heaven was opened and the holy Spirit descended upon him in bodily form like a dove. And a voice came from heaven, “You are my beloved Son; with you I am well pleased.” Lk 3:21-22
Hail Mary . . .

Here is my servant whom I uphold, / my chosen one with whom I am pleased, / Upon whom I have put my spirit. Is 42:1
Hail Mary . . .

A bruised reed he shall not break, / and a smoldering wick he shall not quench. Is 42:3
Hail Mary . . .

I, the LORD, have called you for the victory of justice. Is 42:6
Hail Mary . . .

I formed you, and set you / as a covenant of the people, / a light for the nations. Is 42:6
Hail Mary . . .

“The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, / because he has anointed me / to bring glad tidings to the poor.” Lk 4:18
Hail Mary . . .

“He has sent me to proclaim liberty to captives / and recovery of sight to the blind, / to let the oppressed go free, / and to proclaim a year acceptable to the Lord.” Lk 4:18-19
Hail Mary . . .
Glory be . . .

LORD JESUS, HELP US TO PERSEVERE
IN LIVING OUT OUR BAPTISMAL PROMISES.
