The Third Glorious Mystery

The Third Glorious Mystery of the Rosary is the descent of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost.

Acts 2:1-8


When the time for Pentecost was fulfilled, they were all in one place together. And suddenly there came from the sky a noise like a strong driving wind, and it filled the entire house in which they were.


Then there appeared to them tongues as of fire, which parted and came to rest on each one of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in different tongues, as the Spirit enabled them to proclaim.


Now there were devout Jews from every nation under heaven staying in Jerusalem. At this sound, they gathered in a large crowd, but they were confused because each one heard them speaking in his own language. They were astounded, and in amazement they asked, “Are not all these people who are speaking Galileans? Then how does each of us hear them in his own native language?


Come, Holy Spirit; fill the hearts of Thy faithful; and kindle in them the fire of Thy love. Send forth Thy Spirit, and they shall be created; and You shalt renew the face of the earth. Amen.
