The First Joyful Mystery: The Annunciation
We meditate upon the Angel’s appearance to Mary – and her great Fiat: “Behold the handmaid of the Lord. Be it done unto me acording to thy word.”
Praying for my friend today, I take this Mystery and pray:
Almighty God, You sent the angel to your daughter Mary to invite her to bear the Messiah – and she said Yes! Be with my beloved friend, I pray, and let the annunciation of Your immense love and your choice of him to be Your very own bring him joy this day. I pray that he might always be ready to say Yes! to Your call upon his life, whatever it might be. Be glorified through him, and on the Last Day may he sing Your praises with all the angels and Saints in the Beatific Vision. Amen.
