Joyful Mysteries with the Saints
St. Augustine: “Him, whom the heavens cannot contain, the womb of one woman bore. She ruled our Ruler, she carried Him, in whom we are, she gave milk to our Bread.” St. Augustine pray for us.
Saint John Vianney: "If you invoke the blessed Virgin when you are tempted, she will come at once to your help, and Satan will leave you." Saint John Vianney pray for us.
St. Peter Chrysologus: “The Magi are filled with awe at what they see; Heaven on earth and earth in Heaven; man in God and God in man; they see enclosed in a tiny body, the One whom the entire world cannot contain.” St. Peter pray for us.
St. John Paul II: “To Mary Simeon said: ‘And a sword will pierce through your own soul also’ (Lk 2:35). The hymns of Bethlehem have now faded and the cross of Golgotha can already be glimpsed; this happens in the temple, the place where sacrifices are offered. The event we are commemorating today is thus a bridge as it were, linking the two most important seasons of the Church’s year.” St. John Paul II pray for us.
The Finding in the Temple:
St. Thomas Aquinas: “Grant me, O Lord my God, a mind to know you, a heart to seek you, wisdom to find you, conduct pleasing to you, faithful perseverance in waiting for you, and a hope of finally embracing you.” St. Thomas pray for us.
