+ Fifth Luminous Mystery: The Institution of the Eucharist

+ Fifth Luminous Mystery: The Institution of the Eucharist

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 As the feast of Passover drew near, Jesus was aware that his hour had come to depart from this world and to go to the Father.

2 Jesus sent Peter and John, saying, “Go and make the preparations for us to eat the Passover.”

3 When the hour came, Jesus took his place at table along with the apostles.

4 While they were eating, Jesus took bread, and after he had pronounced the blessing, he broke it and gave it to his disciples.

5 He said: “Take this and eat; this is my body. Do this in memory of me.”

6 Then he took a cup, and after offering thanks he gave it to them, saying, “Drink from this, all of you.”

7 “For this is my blood of the covenant, which will be shed on behalf of many for the forgiveness of sins.”

8 “And I tell you, from now on I shall not drink this fruit of the vine until the day when I shall drink it anew with you in the kingdom of my Father.”

9 “I will be with you only a short time longer. I give you a new commandment: love one another, just as I have loved you.”

10 And after singing a hymn, they went out to the Mount of Olives.

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.

Concluding prayers:

Hail, holy Queen, mother of mercy, our life, our sweetness, and our hope. To thee do we cry, poor banished children of Eve. To thee do we send up our sighs mourning and weeping in this valley of tears. Turn then, most gracious advocate, thine eyes of mercy toward us, and after this our exile show us the blessed fruit of thy womb, Jesus. O clement, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary.

V: Pray for us, O Holy Mother of God.
R: That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.

V: Let us pray.
R: O God, whose only begotten Son, by His life, death, and resurrection, has purchased for us the rewards of eternal salvation. Grant, we beseech Thee, that while meditating on these mysteries of the most holy Rosary of the Blessed Virgin Mary, that we may both imitate what they contain and obtain what they promise, through Christ our Lord. Amen.

Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, have mercy on us.
Immaculate Heart of Mary, pray for us.
