The Luminous Mysteries
First Luminous Mystery. The Baptism of Jesus.

Jesus came from Nazareth in Galilee and was baptised in the Jordan by John. And at once, as he was coming up out of the water, he saw the heavens torn apart and the Spirit, like a dove, descending on him. And a voice came from heaven, 'You are my Son, the Beloved; my favour rests on you.'
(Mk 1:9-11)

Second Luminous Mystery. The Wedding of Cana.

His mother said to the servants, 'Do whatever he tells you.' This was the first of Jesus' signs: it was at Cana in Galilee. He revealed his glory, and his disciples believed in him.
(Jn 2:5,11)

Third Luminous Mystery. The Proclamation of the Kingdom of God.

Jesus went into Galilee. There he proclaimed the gospel from God saying, 'The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is close at hand. Repent, and believe the gospel.'
(Mk 1:14-15)

Fourth Luminous Mystery. The Transfiguration.

Jesus took with him Peter and James and his brother John and led them up a high mountain by themselves. There in their presence he was transfigured: his face shone like the sun and his clothes became as dazzling as light.
(Mt 17:1-2)

Fifth Luminous Mystery. The Institution of the Eucharist.

Jesus took bread, and when he had said the blessing he broke it and gave it to the disciples. 'Take it and eat,' he said, 'this is my body.' Then he took a cup, and when he had given thanks he handed it to them saying, 'Drink from this, all of you, for this is my blood, the blood of the covenant, poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins.'
(Mt 26:26-28)
