My Journey to God

The Luminous Mysteries

The Baptism of the Lord

Heaven is illumined
As Jordan’s waters bless
Him who needs no cleansing
Yet wills to answer “yes.”

The Wedding at Cana

Mary, caring mother,
Your kind heart never stills.
What you ask for others
Becomes the wish He wills.

The Proclamation of the Kingdom

Signs and sounds are sacred
As Jesus speaks His laws.
Surely, here is challenge
That causes some to pause.

The Transfiguration

Seeing Christ transfigured
Would change the men as well.
Evermore their fervor
No earthly force could quell.

The Institution of the Eucharist

Supreme the sacrifice,
Supreme the sacrament.
All is given, taken—
A twofold complement.
