Pro-life Reflections on the "LuminousMysteries" of the Rosary
On October 16, 2002, Pope John Paul IIrecommended to the Christian world the addition of a new set of Mysteries to the Rosary. Following are pro-life meditations on these mysteries.
First Luminous Mystery: Christ is Baptized in the Jordan 
When Jesus is baptized, the Father's voice is heard: "This is my beloved Son." All are called to becomeadopted sons and daughters of God through baptism. We pray that children in the womb may be
protected, so that they may be born and welcomed into the Christian community by baptism.
Second Luminous Mystery: Christ is made known at the Wedding of Cana 
Jesus revealed His glory by the miracle at Cana. The new couple was blessed not only with wine, butwith faith in Christ. Let us pray for strong marriages, rooted in the Lord, and open to the gift of new life.
Third Luminous Mystery: Christ proclaims the Kingdom and Calls All to Conversion 
"Repent and believe the Good News." Let us pray that these first words of Jesus' public ministry may beheard by all who have committed abortion. May they know that the Lord calls them to conversion, andmay they experience life-giving repentance.
Fourth Luminous Mystery: The Transfiguration 
Christ is transformed on the mountain, and the disciples see His glory. May the eyes of all people betransformed, that they may see each and every human life as a reflection of the glory of God Himself.
Fifth Luminous Mystery: Jesus gives us the Eucharist 
"This is My Body, given up for you." The Eucharist teaches us how to live and how to love. Let us praythat parents who sacrifice the babies for the sake of themselves may learn instead to put themselvesaside for the sake of their babies.
