Rosary reflections - GIFT TO GOD

 

 

 

Joyful Mysteries

(Monday and Saturday)

 

The Annunciation

God sends His messenger, an angel, to Mary, to humanity. Mary had many questions, and very few answers. However, she trusted God and offered herself to Him: “Let it be according to your word”. “Your will be done” – we pray, and then try to do our own will. Let us offer ourselves to God, He has a better plan than ours. Let our free will be a gift to God.

 

The Visitation

Mary goes to visit her relatives. It is not just a kind visit, to see how they are living. She goes with a certain help to offer. Sometimes, our presence is enough. To be with others, to be for them, means more than any physical help. Let our presence in the life of others be a gift to God.

 

The Nativity of Jesus

Mary gives birth to a child, to Jesus. It is a great mystery of human life. Another human being came to this world, and not just another, but Jesus, the Son of God. He wants to be born not only to Mary but to each one of us. He wants to become a part of our family, with our daily joys and sorrows and troubles. Let our family be a gift to God. Let it be a family of Jesus.

 

The Presentation of Jesus

Mary brings Jesus to the temple to offer Him to His heavenly Father. She offers to Go her treasure, her Son, the best she has got. Let us take her example and let us offer to God our children and ourselves. That’s the best what we can offer to God. Let us be a gift to God.

 

Finding Jesus in the Temple

Jesus got lost? He wanted to? He needed to be in those things and matters that concerned His Father. Though we are searching for so many different things, in the depths of our hearts we are searching for Christ, unconsciously. The true happiness begins with finding Jesus. Let our conscious searching for Jesus in all our matters be a gift to God.
