Today, I’ll take an oh-so brief look at the Second Mysteries.
- Right after learning that she is to be the Mother of God, Mary hurries over to assist her cousin Elizabeth, whom she has just learnt is also expecting, in her old age. This kind of service, that completely forgets the self, is what we are called to as disciples
- John the Baptist, not even born yet, leaps for joy as he recognises that he is in the presence of the Lamb of God. Does being in God’s presence lead to awe, amazement, and joy?

- Our Lady’s instructions to the servants: “Do whatever He tells you,” provide the model for discipleship
- This was the first sign that Jesus performed, and John tells us that the disciples “believed in Him”; (Jn. 2:11) belief in Christ is the crux of being a disciple.
- We can unite the sufferings that we encounter, as disciples of Christ, with the immense suffering that the One whom we follow went through for us
- Our Lord’s final instruction to His Apostles before He left them, was to “Go, make disciples of all nations.”
