From Pope John Paul II

"Moving on from the infancy and the hidden life in Nazareth to the public life of Jesus, our contemplation brings us to those mysteries which may be called in a special way “mysteries of light”. Certainly the whole mystery of Christ is a mystery of light. He is the “light of the world” (Jn 8:12). Yet this truth emerges in a special way during the years of his public life, when he proclaims the Gospel of the Kingdom."
Rosarium Virginis Mariae

First Mystery of Light

The Baptism in the Jordan

"And when Jesus was baptized, he went up immediately from the water, and behold, the heavens were opened and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove, and alighting on him; and lo, a voice from heaven, saying, 'This is my beloved Son, with whom I am well-pleased'." (Mt 3:16-17)


Second Mystery of Light

The wedding feast of Cana

On the third day there was a marriage at Cana in Galilee, and the mother of Jesus was there; Jesus also was invited to the marriage, with his disciples. When the wine failed, the mother of Jesus said to him, 'They have no wine.' And Jesus said to her, 'O woman, what have you to do with me? My hour has not yet come.' His mother said to the servants, 'Do whatever he tells you'." (Jn 2:1-5)


Third Mystery of Light

The proclamation of the Kingdom of God

"The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand; repent, and believe in the gospel." (Mk 1:15)


Fourth Mystery of Light

The Transfiguration

"And after six days Jesus took with him Peter and James and John his brother, and led them up a high mountain apart. And he was transfigured before them, and his face shone like the sun, and his garments became white as light." (Mt 17:1-2)


Fifth Mystery of Light

The institution of the Eucharist

Now as they were eating, Jesus took bread, and blessed, and broke it, and gave it to the disciples and said, 'Take, eat; this is my body'." (Mt 26:26)
