+ Fourth Joyful Mystery of the Rosary: The Presentation

Begin with the Our Father.
Read each verse, then say the Hail Mary.
At the end of the decade, say the Glory Be.

Optionally, finish with the Fatima Prayer below.

1 When the days for their purification were completed according to the Law of Moses, they brought the child up to Jerusalem to present him to the Lord.

2 At that time, there was a man in Jerusalem whose name was Simeon. This upright and devout man was awaiting the consolation of Israel.

3 It had been revealed to him by the Holy Spirit that he would not experience death before he had seen the Christ of the Lord.

4 Prompted by the Spirit, Simeon came into the temple.

5 When the parents brought in the child Jesus to do for him what was required by the Law, he took him in his arms and praised God.

6 Simeon said: “Now, Lord, you may dismiss your servant in peace, according to your word.”

7 “My eyes have seen your salvation, which you have prepared in the sight of all the peoples.”

8 “A light of revelation to the Gentiles and glory for your people Israel.”

9 Then Simeon blessed them and said to Mary his mother: “This child is destined for the fall and rise of many in Israel, and to be a sign that will be opposed.”

10 He also said to Mary: “And you yourself a sword will pierce.”

The Fatima Prayer: O My Jesus, forgive us our sins, save us from the fires of Hell, lead all souls to Heaven, especially those in most need of your mercy.
