Friends of the Rosary,
The mysteries we pray today are rightly called joyful because of the joy they gave to the whole universe.
St Louis Mary de Montfort explained that Our Lady and the angels were overwhelmed with joy when the Son of God was incarnate. St Elizabeth and St John the Baptist were filled with joy by the visit of Mary and Jesus. Heaven and Earth rejoiced at the birth of Our Savior. Holy Simeon was filled with joy when he took the Holy Child in his arms. The doctors were lost in admiration at the answers of Jesus at the temple of Jerusalem. And Mary and Joseph were exultant when they found the Child Jesus after three days of search.
