The Sorrowful Mysteries.--->
<---The Holy Rosary. It´s origin.

When children pray attract many blessings to the family. Due to the purity of his soul and innocence.

The Sign of the Cross
+By the sign of the Cross, deliver us from our enemies, Lord, our God.
+ In the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Amen.

The best way to prepare for prayer is to begin by acknowledging our sins.
So let's say;
Act of Contrition.
I confess to God the Father Almighty and to you brothers that I have sinned in thought, word, and deed: through my fault, through my fault, I have sinned. And I ask Blessed Mary ever Virgin, angels and saints, and you, brothers, to pray for me to the Lord our God. Amen.

Or we pray:

O my God, I am heartily sorry for having offended you, and I detest
all my sins, because of Your just punishments, but most of all because
they offend You, my God, who are all-good and deserving of all my love.
I firmly resolve, with the help of Your grace, to sin no more and to
avoid the near occasion of sin. Amen.

Is customary to recite a third of the Holy Rosary, ie, 5 tens, it is very useful to practice the pious custom of an intention to implement each decade.
For example: the Pope, world peace,
by the ecclesiastical vocation and sanctification of priests for the missions,
for the sick or for some particular need,
for the conversion of any person,
for the union of Church (Ecumenical),
asking for work, health and welfare.

First Joyful Mystery:
The Annunciation of the Angel Gabriel to Mary.

Biblical Text: Luke 1: 26-38.

At that time, God sent the Archangel Gabriel to visit a young virgin named Mary.
The Angel praises Mary as "full of grace", the Lord is with you.
She was troubled by these words, and wondered what sort of greeting.
The angel said:
"Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favor with God, you will conceive in your womb and bear a son, and shall call his name Jesus.
He will be great and will be called Son of the Most High".
Mary said to the angel:
"How can this be, since i am a virgin?"
The angel said: "The Holy Spirit will come upon you and the power of the Most High will overshadow you, the Holy one to be born will be called, Son of God".
And he reported that her cousin Elizabeth had conceived a son in his old age, because;
"Nothing is impossible for God"
and saying she was humiliated
"I am the servant of the Lord done to me what you've said".
And the angel went away.

Helpless Humanity was not able to do good and cried God:
"Clouds, rain the Just, earth open, and emerging from you the Salvador":
Immaculate was the only woman chosen to be the Mother of God.
Angel bows before her. It is the first time that human nature is so honored.
Always clean the Virgin Mary, illuminated inside, she realized the great mystery of the Incarnation, and was very small before the divine throne.
The servant of the Lord!
She believed in the word of God, the Archangel Gabriel to transmit. Human nature, impregnated by the Holy Spirit, will host the Son of God, which will remove the sin and defeat the demon. New start time, the reconciliation between the Creator and the creature.
With Angel Congratulations to Mary for being full of grace and by carrying in her womb the Author of grace and life.
Learn from her to cooperate with the supernatural inspirations, ask her the love of purity, and unite the joy she experienced her heart immediately before the coming of the Messiah.
When we receive any praise, remember that if we successfully a work order, all credit goes to Jesus.

Let us ask through Mary:

Second Joyful Mystery:
The Visitation of Mary to her cousin Elizabeth.

Biblical text. Luke 1: 39-45

A few days later Mary hurried to the mountain led to a city of Judah.
Entered the house of Zechariah and greeted her cousin Elizabeth.
When Elizabeth heard Mary's greeting, the baby leaped in her womb and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit.
And she said, raising his voice: "Blessed art thou among women and blessed is the fruit of your womb!"
How is the mother of my Lord comes to me? As soon as your greeting sounded in my ears, the babe leaped from joy in my breast.
Blessed is she who has believed that what Lord has said will be accomplished!"

Short pause for reflection or,
Meditation by Father Celso Mejido Diaz, Missionary of the Sacred Heart.

A few days after the Annunciation, the Blessed Virgin makes a long journey to visit her cousin Elizabeth. The journey from Nazareth to Hebron is long, but the problems only revived his charity.
Beautiful lesson for lazy and weak souls who do not dare to go one step further in favor of others and perform their duties with neglect and abandonment.
Both cousins had miraculously conceived. The Word was incarnate by the Holy Spirit. John, the forerunner, was conceived in the ordinary way of the union of a man and a woman, but in circumstances prodigious, as her mother Elizabeth had passed the age of motherhood.
John was conceived in original sin, but before birth sanctified by the visit of Jesus in Mary's womb.
This happened at the meeting and affectionate greeting of cousins.
Zechariah's wife was filled by the Holy Spirit, and jumped for joy John, the child she was carrying in her womb Elizabeth welcome the son of God, the Blessed Virgin, carrying in her womb.
John was thus the first Christian and as such, a model and example. Proclaims to her cousin Elizabeth as the Mother of God, blessed among women and blessed by all generations. She recognizes that leads to the Son of God in her virginal womb.
Our Lady replied attributing sing a praise to God, "the Magnificat",
which knocks down the proud and exalts the humble.
The Heart of Mary has begun to visit the ministry of reconciliation of sinners with God. Learn from the spirit of helpfulness of Mary and radiate your charity.
Blessed are You, tells Elizabeth, because you believed. Appreciate above all love God and neighbor as it did Mary. Let us imitate Mary and learn to sacrifice with joy the good of our brothers in need.

Let us ask through Mary:
The charity towards our brothers.

Pray one Our Father, ten Hail Marys and one Glory be.
And then:
"O my Jesus, forgive us our sins, save us from fires of hell, leads to heaven all souls and helps specially the most need of Thy Mercy."Amen.

Third Joyful Mystery:
The birth of Jesus in the manger in Bethlehem.

Biblical text. Luke 2: 1-7

In those days Caesar Augustus issued a decree that a census should be taken of the entire Roman world. (This was the first census that took place while Quirinius was governor of Syria.) And everyone went to his own town to register.
So Joseph also went up from the town of Nazareth in Galilee to Judea, to Bethlehem the town of David, because he belonged to the house and line of David.
He went there to register with Mary, who was pledged to be married to him and was expecting a child.
While they were there, the time came for the baby to be born, and she gave birth to her firstborn, a son. She wrapped him in cloths and placed him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn.

Short pause for reflection or,
Meditation by Father Celso Mejido Diaz, Missionary of the Sacred Heart.

Joseph and Mary lived in Nazareth happy waiting for the fruit of holiness that she bore in her womb. The angel had revealed the mystery of Joseph, who was chaste and pure of heart.
The birth time was to take place in Bethlehem. Since centuries ago that the prophets had foretold the birth of the Messiah.
The pride of the Emperor Augustus, the powerful are also instruments of God, which served to fulfill the Scriptures.
It has a census of the inhabitants of the empire. Joseph's family came from Bethlehem. Spouses are subject to the civil authority.
They go to Bethlehem. There are inn to stay.
An abandoned barn will be their night shelter. Endure cold and discomfort.
They do not complain because they know that God is with them.
Despite some difficulty always show joy. . The King of Heaven and earth, decides to be born in a rustic manger.
The deeper wound the human being is pride. And Jesus is an example of humility to bring down our pride.
Child born of poor parents, and pastors are your company. Humble and poor people like Joseph and Mary. The good news, the birth was not witnessed by the rich, the wise men, or lawyers, but by the humble people. So Jesus declares in favor of the poor, the humble of heart, and the despised of this world.
A multitude of Angels accompanying the Christ Child illuminating the stable and praising God for the birth of Jesus.
"Gloria In Excelsis Deo".
Adore to the Child Jesus who is King of Heaven wrapped in poor swaddling clothes on the straw in a manger. Seeing his voluntary poverty,
let us feel shame because so many times we regret by not having everything that our caprice wants.

Let us ask through Mary:
Detachment from earthly goods that keep us away from God
Pray one Our Father,
ten Hail Marys and one Glory be.
And then:
"O my Jesus, forgive us our sins, save us from fires of hell, leads to heaven all souls and helps specially the most need of Thy Mercy."Amen.

Fourth Joyful Mystery:
The Presentation of the Infant Jesus in the Temple.

Biblical Text: Luke 2, 22-24.

And when the days of her purification according to the law of Moses, brought him to Jerusalem to offer the Lord, as written in the law of the Lord, "Every firstborn male be consecrated to the Lord, and to offer the sacrifice as ordained in the law of the Lord: A pair of doves or two pigeons.

Short pause for reflection or,
Meditation by Father Celso Diaz Mejido Missionary of the Sacred Heart.

The old law commanded God to consecrate the temple to all first-born male.
The mother there was purged of impurity contracted during childbirth.
Both the Virgin how Jesus was free from every stain.
This law did not require Mary because Jesus was God, but She submits and obeys the common mandate. Joseph and Mary, obey and are part of the Jewish people, and how Jews do not want keep the sidelines.
After forty days, Mary, take the child and the offering, with Him, and through him, was present. A pair of doves who was the offering of the poor.
The aged Simeon, filled with the Holy Spirit, seeing the Infant Jesus, proclaimed as the savior of mankind. Joyful takes it in his arms. Simeon was the first Christine, and proclaiming Jesus as the Son of God.
With joy also predicted pain to Mary:
"This child will be a cause of salvation for some and fall for others".
And Mary says: "As a sword of sorrow will pierce your soul."
We need to know that we will all suffer, sooner or later, and we must do it quietly and offer it to Jesus Christ for everything he did for us.
Simeon teaches his honest conduct, the virtue of hope, which must not abandon ever, even when all seems lost.
Let us unite Heart of Mary in his life of sacrifice and bitterness.
What parents dedicate their child to God, and that they be educated for Heaven. Teaching them to pray the rosary and love to the Blessed Virgin.
Let us imitate the obedience and purity of Mary and we are always ready to accept the orders of those in authority over us.
Let us be faithful to the promises we make to God.
Providence never abandons those who trust in God.
Purify our hearts through the sacrament of confession, since it is a gift from God. Do not waste it.

Let us ask through Mary:
The virtue of Obedience.

Pray one Our Father and ten Hail Marys and one Glory be.
And then:
"O my Jesus, forgive us our sins, save us from fires of hell, leads to heaven all souls and helps specially the most need of Thy Mercy."Amen.

Fifth Joyful Mystery:
The Finding of the Child Jesus in the temple.

Biblical Text: Luke 2, 41-50.

Every year his parents went to Jerusalem for the Feast of the Passover. When he was twelve years old, they went up to the Feast, according to the custom.
After the Feast was over, while his parents were returning home, the boy Jesus stayed behind in Jerusalem, but they were unaware of it.
Thinking he was in their company, they traveled on for a day. Then they began looking for him among their relatives and friends. When they did not find him, they went back to Jerusalem to look for him.
After three days they found him in the temple courts, sitting among the teachers, listening to them and asking them questions.
Everyone who heard him was amazed at his understanding and his answers.
When his parents saw him, they were astonished. His mother said to him, "Son, why have you treated us like this? Your father and I have been anxiously searching for you."
"Why were you searching for me?" he asked.
"Didn't you know I had to be in my Father's house?"
But they did not understand what he was saying to them.

Short pause for reflection or,
Meditation by Father Celso Diaz Mejido Missionary of the Sacred Heart.

The sons must present himself in the temple three time a year by mandate of the old law.
It happened that, in time of the Passover, when the Child Jesus was twelve years old, was with Joseph and Mary to the temple.
On the way back, when they were far away from Jerusalem, notice the absence. Anguish, despair and fear of the Hearts of Mary and Joseph!.
During three days looking for Jesus among relatives and friends.
Until finally, they realize that Jesus should be in the temple.
And indeed, there he was. The pain and anguish became joy. There sat among the wises and doctors of the law. They wondered:
How is it that this child knows as much about the scriptures?.
Mary asks Jesus why he has disappeared for three days. Your father and I have been distressed looking for you. Jesus replied that they must know that He has to take care of the things his Heavenly Father.
His parents did not understand much what Jesus said.
But docile and obedient, Jesus returned to their parents obediently.
Let us learn from Mary and Joseph to seek the grace of God's presence, source of peace and eternal happiness.
The temple is the natural refuge of the Christian. It find there, health for the suffering of the soul, reconciliation with God and forgiveness of sins.
Jesus-God wait us with open arms to ease our consciences, especially if we seek God through the Heart of Mary our Mother in Heaven.
Let us ask Mary to help us keep Jesus always in our heart and if we have sinned, help us return to Him, through repentance and sincere confession of our sins.

Let us ask through Mary:
Fidelity to religious duties.

Pray one Our Father, ten Hail Marys and one Glory be.
And then:
"O my Jesus, forgive us our sins, save us from fires of hell, leads to heaven all souls and helps specially the most need of Thy Mercy."Amen.
