In his encyclical letter Rosarium Virginis Mariae, Pope John Paul II reminded the faithful that the Rosary of the Virgin Mary, which gradually took form in the second millennium under the guidance of the Spirit of God, is a prayer loved by countless Saints and encouraged by the Magisterium. The Holy Father teaches us that to meditate upon the Joyful Mysteries of the Rosary is ‘to enter into the ultimate causes and the deepest meaning of Christian joy. It is to focus on the realism of the mystery of the Incarnation and on the obscure foreshadowing of the mystery of the saving Passion’. This book of reflections on each of the Joyful Mysteries is intended for those who pray the rosary but will also be useful for those who do not. Skilfully blending texts from Old and New Testaments, as well as the author’s extensive experience of pilgrimage in the Holy Land, the book helps us reflect on the events in the life of Jesus and how those joy-filled mysteries of his life connect with our own.
