THE JOYFUL MYSTERIES
( Mondays and Saturdays, may be said on Sundays during Advent and
The Joyful Mysteries are marked by the joy radiating from the event of the Incarnation.
To meditate upon the joyful mysteries is to enter into the ultimate causes and the deepest
meaning of Christian joy. It is to focus on the realism of the mystery of the Incarnation
and on the obscure foreshadowing of the mystery of the saving Passion. Mary leads us to
discover the secret of Christian joy, reminding us that Christianity is, first and foremost,
evangelization, "good news", which has as its heart and its whole content the person of
Jesus Christ, the Word made flesh, the one Savior of the world.
