The Fourth Glorious Mystery

The Fourth Glorious Mystery of the Rosary is the Assumption of Mary, when Jesus took his Mother up into heaven to be with him.


Sirach 24:24-27 (Apocrypha)

I am the mother of fair love, and of fear, and of knowledge, and of holy hope. In me is all grace of the way and of truth, in me is all hope of life and of virtue. Come to me, all you that yearn for me, and be filled with my fruits. You will remember me as sweeter than honey, better to have than the honeycomb.


Psalm 45:14-15

All glorious is the king’s daughter as she enters, her raiment threaded with gold; in embroidered apparel she is led to the king.


Revelation 12:1

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


Judith 13:18 (Apocrypha)

Blessed are you, daughter, by the Most High God, above all the women on earth.


Hail, Mary full of grace, the Lord is with you! Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb, Jesus! Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death.


Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit! As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end, Amen.
