"Declared the beloved Son of the Father at the Baptism in the Jordan, Christ is the one who announces the coming of the Kingdom, bears witness to it in his works and proclaims its demands. It is during the years of his public ministry that the mystery of Christ is most evidently a mystery of light" -- Saint Pope John Paul II in his 2002 Apostolic Letter, Rosarium Virginis Mariae
Jesus is the Light of the World. He is referred to as the Light of the World several times in Saint John's Gospel. "What came to be through him was life, and this life was the light of the human race, the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it." -- John 1:3-5.
In 2002, Saint Pope John Paul II gave the Catholic faithful an incredible gift with the introduction of a new Mystery -- the Light or "Luminous" Mysteries -- to the traditional Holy Rosary devotion. Meditating on these Mysteries gives light to Our Lord Jesus' public life, filling the gap between his childhood and the beginning of his Passion.
Our new Light Mysteries Rosary -- part of Ghirelli's exclusive and original Mysteries Of The Rosary Collection -- promises to bring you into a deeper and contemplative understanding and knowledge of Our Lord's public ministry.
