+ Fourth Glorious Mystery: The Assumption

+ Fourth Glorious Mystery: The Assumption

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 A great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon beneath her feet, and a crown of twelve stars on her head.

2 She was with child and about to give birth, crying aloud in the anguish of her labor.

3 She gave birth to a son, a male child who is destined to rule all the nations with an iron rod. And her child was taken up directly to God and to his throne.

4 Then I heard a loud voice in heaven say: “Now have come the salvation and the power and the kingdom of our God and the authority of his Messiah.”

5 Therefore rejoice, you heavens, and you who dwell in them!

6 There are both heavenly bodies and earthly bodies. The splendor of heavenly bodies is of one kind, and that of earthly bodies is another.

7 What is sown is perishable; what is raised is imperishable. What is sown is a physical body; what is raised is a spiritual body.

8 The man formed from dust is the pattern for earthly people; the heavenly man is the pattern for those who are of heaven.

9 Just as we have borne the image of the man formed from dust, so shall we also bear the likeness of the heavenly one.

10 Death has been swallowed up in victory. Where, O death, is your victory? Where, O death, is your sting?”

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.
