+ Second Joyful Mystery of the Rosary: The Visitation

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

Optionally, finish with the Fatima Prayer below.

1 In those days, Mary set out and journeyed in haste into the hill country to a town of Judah where she entered the house of Zechariah and greeted Elizabeth.

2 When Elizabeth heard Mary’s greeting, the baby leaped in her womb.

3 Then Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit, and she exclaimed with a loud cry, “Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb.”

4 “And why am I so greatly favoured that the mother of my Lord should visit me?”

5 “For behold, the moment that the sound of your greeting reached my ears, the child in my womb leaped for joy.”

6 “And blessed is she who believed that what the Lord has said to her will be fulfilled.”

7 And Mary said: “My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord and my spirit rejoices in God my Saviour.”

8 “For he has looked with favour on the lowliness of his servant; henceforth all generations will call me blessed.”

9 “The Mighty One has done great things for me, and holy is his name.”

10 Mary remained with Elizabeth for about three months and then returned to her home.

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.
