The Joyful Mysteries

The 5th Joyful Mystery - The Finding in the Temple

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:

“Each year his parents went to Jerusalem for the feast of Passover,  and when he was twelve years old, they went up according to festival custom. After they had completed its days, as they were returning, the boy Jesus remained behind in Jerusalem, but his parents did not know it. Thinking that he was in the caravan, they journeyed for a day and looked for him among their relatives and acquaintances, but not finding him, they returned to Jerusalem to look for him. After three days they found him in the temple, sitting in the midst of the teachers, listening to them and asking them questions, and all who heard him were astounded at his understanding and his answers.” - Luke 2:41-47 

Fruit of the mystery: Devotion to Jesus

Now, while reflecting on your prayer intention, the Gospel reading, and the fruit of Devotion to Jesus, 

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.
