The Second Joyful Mystery:  The Visitation of Mary to Elizabeth

Visitation

Called in the Gospels "the mother of Jesus," Mary is acclaimed by Elizabeth, at the prompting of the Spirit and even before the birth of her son, as "the mother of my Lord." In fact, the One whom she conceived as man by the Holy Spirit, who truly became her Son according to the flesh, was none other than the Father's eternal Son, the second person of the Holy Trinity. Hence the church confesses that Mary is truly "Mother of God" (Theotokos)

Hail Mary...(ten times)
Glory be...
O, my Jesus...

The Third Joyful Mystery:  The Nativity of Our Lord

Nativity

The Word became flesh so that thus we might know God's love:"In this the love of God was made manifest among us, that God sent his only Son into the world, so that we might live through him." "For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life."

Hail Mary...(ten times)
Glory be...
O, my Jesus...
