Roses of Light
Luminous Rosary, first meditation--The Baptism

by Virginia M. Kimball, S.T.D.

Mary knew her Son:

water for the thirsty,

spring of water welling,

gushing eternity, John 4:14

and He said:

for "I am He." (4:26)

Rejoice, Miryam! 

You hug the joy of God.

Yahweh has come to you ...

You are happy, rejoicing with all women,

 and joyful is God's fruit within your womb.

He knew his mother,  

for she was like a tree,

planted so near the stream,

bearing fruit in season,Psalm 1: 3

trusting God

so He could be.

Rejoice, Miryam! 

You hug the joy of God.

Yahweh has come to you ...

You are happy, rejoicing with all women,

 and joyful is God's fruit within your womb.

There by riverís bank,

She heard Godís voice above,

say her son was His Son,

submerging Self in love,

giving life

so life be won.

Rejoice, Miryam! 

You hug the joy of God.

Yahweh has come to you ...

You are happy, rejoicing with all women,

 and joyful is God's fruit within your womb.

God said, "Let the water teem

with all living creatures," Genesis 1: 20

seeing how good it was. Genesis 1: 21

... Christ, her son, rising from

water heard heaven's call:

"My beloved

He pleases me!" Matthew 3: 17

Rejoice, Miryam! 

You hug the joy of God.

Yahweh has come to you ...

You are happy, rejoicing with all women,

 and joyful is God's fruit within your womb.

Flowing from that stream's mikvah,

parted then by Yahweh:

life dwelling in her Son,

revealing in the Jordan.

Rejoice, Miryam! 

You hug the joy of God.

Yahweh has come to you ...

You are happy, rejoicing with all women,

 and joyful is God's fruit within your womb.
