The Joyful Mysteries

The 3rd Joyful Mystery - The Nativity

While holding the next large bead, speak to the Blessed Mother, let her know your prayer intentions for this holy rosary. Then, while contemplating the goodness of our Mother, read the following:

“In those days a decree went out from Caesar Augustus that the whole world should be enrolled. This was the first enrollment, when Quirinius was governor of Syria. So all went to be enrolled, each to his own town. And Joseph too went up from Galilee from the town of Nazareth to Judea, to the city of David that is called Bethlehem, because he was of the house and family of David, to be enrolled with Mary, his betrothed, who was with child. While they were there, the time came for her to have her child, and she gave birth to her firstborn son. She wrapped him in swaddling clothes and laid him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn.” - Luke 2:1-7

Fruit of the mystery: Poverty

Now, while reflecting on your prayer intention, the Gospel reading, and the fruit of Poverty, 

Pray 1 Hail Mary on each of the next 10 beads.

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.
