Luminous Rosary, third meditation--Proclamation of the Kingdom

"What was from the beginning,
what we have heard,
what we have seen with our eyes,
what we looked upon and touched with our hands
concerns the Word of life–for the life
was made visible; we have seen it
and testify to it and proclaim to you
the eternal life that was with the Father
and was made visible to us." (1 John 1: 1-2)
Surely Mary knew the precepts of Moses;
and truly she knew our Christ,
her son,
Yahweh’s Son,
She heard his voice, saw him human, touching the face of God.

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.
She was the mother who bore him,
making him visible, her testimony
and proclamation of God with us.
She listened to his words, she wept and laughed with him, even feeling his pain.

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.
Happy are those who know what Moses said,
yet thrive in the living words of Christ's peace,
for they dwell in joy that comes from trust.
And the angel greeted Mary;
"You exist in God, you heard the call, God's work in your womb, being "pure of heart."

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.
"And blessed are those who mourn,
for theirs is the kingdom of God."
Paradox? How can we be blessed
yet face the door of death? Stand at the cross with his mother, knowing happiness?

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.
Rejoicing in a cosmic victory,
stomping down death by death alone ...
her Son's selfless act to make all free.
This was Mary's joy: reaching, aware, immersing in mystical meaning.

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.
