Have no anxiety at all, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, make your requests known to God. Then the peace of God that surpasses all understanding will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.
Phil 4:6-7

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us

Christi Himmelfahrt 
Gebhard Fugel

Mysteries of the Holy Rosary between the Ascension and Pentecost

First Mystery
Jesus is conceived by the Holy Spirit of the Virgin Mary.

Meditation: The Holy Spirit shall come upon thee
and the power of the Most High shall overshadow
thee. Therefore the Holy One to be born shall be called
the Son of God [Lk. 11:35].

Second Mystery
The Spirit of the Lord rests upon Jesus.
Meditation: When Jesus was baptized,
He immediately came up from the water.
And behold, the heavens were opened to Him,
and He saw the Spirit of God descending as a Dove
and coming upon Him [Mt. 3:16].

Third Mystery
Jesus is led by the Spirit into the desert.
Meditation: Now Jesus, full of the Holy Spirit,
returned from the Jordan,
and was led by the Spirit about the desert for
forty days,
being tempted the while by the devil [Lk. 4:11].

Fourth Mystery
The Holy Spirit in the Church.
Meditation: Suddenly there came a sound from heaven,
as of a violent wind blowing,
and it filled the whole house where they were
And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit
and began to speak of the wonderful works of God
[Acts 2:2, 4, 11].

Fifth Mystery
The Holy Spirit in the souls of the Just.
Meditation: Or, do you not know that your members
are the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you?
Do not extinguish the Spirit.
And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God
in whom you were sealed for the day of redemption
[1 Cor. 6:19; 1 Thess. 5:19; Eph. 4:30].
