+ Fourth Luminous Mystery: The Transfiguration of Christ

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 Jesus took Peter, John, and James and went up on a mountain to pray.

2 And while he was praying, the appearance of his face underwent a change, and his clothing became dazzling white.

3 Suddenly, there were two men talking with him, Moses and Elijah, who appeared in glory.

4 They spoke of his departure, which would come to pass in Jerusalem.

5 Peter and his companions were very sleepy, but when they became fully awake they beheld his glory and the two men standing beside him.

6 Peter said to Jesus, “Master, it is good for us to be here. Let us make three tents—one for you, one for Moses, and one for Elijah.”

7 While he was speaking, a cloud came and cast its shadow over them, and the three disciples became frightened as they entered the cloud.

8 Then a voice came out of the cloud, saying, “This is my Son, my Chosen One. Listen to him.”

9 After the voice had spoken, they beheld only Jesus.

10 They kept silent and at that time they did not tell anyone about what they had witnessed.

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.
