Fourth Glorious Mystery:
The Assumption
(Intention: To possess a deep awareness of the glory to come)

[ Recite 1 Our Father - 10 Hail Marys - 1 Glory be to the Father ]

Mary, my Queen and Mother, I rejoice that your pure body - the Ark of the Covenant before His Birth, and a Temple of the Lord at His Resurrection - rose from death in anticipation of the General Resurrection.

It is a comfort to know that you are in Heaven as my Mother with all the love and concern your dignity demands. You know the dangers of
this life, you know the temptations of the Enemy, you know the weaknesses of the flesh. Help me to withstand these dangers until Jesus calls me to Himself.

Teach me, kind Mother, to keep my body pure, my mind undefiled, and my heart detached. Let your Assumption into Heaven give me the assurance and courage to be a Christian in word and deed.

Fill my mind with the knowledge of your Son's life, a compassion for His sufferings, and a zeal for His Kingdom.

Let my life be patterned after His life, and my Faith and Hope be as deep as yours. I want to stand beneath my cross exercising the same stamina with which you stood beneath His. I want my love and zeal to endure any pain and make any sacrifice. Intercede with your Son on my behalf and teach me to be like Him. Let me rise above the things of this world so my thoughts may be with you in Heaven.
