Rosary for November 21

The Presentation of Mary

(…to be offered for the intentions of Agnes Rus, on the occasion of her birthday)


The First Mystery

You have been blessed, O Virgin Mary, above all other women on earth by the Lord the most high God; he has so exalted your name that your praises shall never fade from the mouths of men (Jdt. 13:23,25)


The Second Mystery

Today is the prelude to God's munificence, and the announcement of salvation: in the temple of God the Virgin is seen openly, foretelling to all the coming of Christ...


The Third Mystery

The most pure temple of the Savior, his most precious bridal chamber, the Virgin, sacred treasury of God's glory, enters today into the house of the Lord, bringing with her the grace of the divine Spirit.


The Fourth Mystery

Wherefore the angels of God are singing: 'Behold the heavenly tabernacle...Wherefore let us cry out to her with all our strength: "Joy to you, fulfillment of the Creator's plan!"


The Fifth Mystery

At the moment when the young girl Mary was presented in the glorious temple, everything that humans build was already diminished by the praise in her heart."


(Magnificat, page 293, November 2009)

Let us sow goodness and holiness, and we will see barren fields bloom.
