Fifth Joyful Mystery: The Finding of the Child Jesus in the Temple

Luke 2:46, 51. After three days they found Him in the temple, sitting in the midst of the teachers, listening to them and asking them questions...And He returned with His parents to Nazareth, and was obedient to them.


Reflection: All of the joyful mysteries are somehow tinged with sorrow, but they are also touched with light and glory. In the precocious wisdom of a 12-year-old boy, Jesus gives his parents and the teachers a glimpse of his true stature. He knows who he is and what he came for, even as a boy. But he did not begin by teaching, just as he did not begin by commanding. He began in the humble position of one who listens and asks questions. He also began in the humility of a boy who obeys his parents. Why does Jesus listen and ask questions when he already knows all of the answers with perfect certainty? And why did he obey his mother and father when he himself had called them into existence? Perhaps Mary also reflected on these questions, wondering at the sweetness and respect with which God introduces himself into our lives, as a fellow pilgrim who lives our lives with us, whose questions make us reflect and grow, who listens to us with kindness and interest, and who perhaps has obeyed us—answering our prayers, forgiving our sins in confession, coming into our hearts in holy Communion— far more than we have obeyed him. In this mystery, ask Mary to help you see and touch this goodness of Jesus in your own life.

"The humility of Jesus can be seen in the crib, in the exile to Egypt, in the hidden life, in the inability to make people understand Him, in the desertion of His apostles, in the hatred of His persecutors, in all the terrible suffering and death of His Passion, and now in His permanent state of humility in the tabernacle, where He has reduced Himself to such a small particle of bread that the priest can hold Him with two fingers. The more we empty ourselves, the more room we give God to fill us."

- Mother Teresa of Calcutta

Consider these words as we pray the 5th Luminous Mystery today.

Tomorrow marks the 27th day of the novena and the conclusion of the 3 novenas of petition. It's already the half way point in the 54-day novena.


On Wednesday November 28 we'll begin 3 novenas of thanksgiving. Even if we have not received the things we're asking for, we nonetheless thank God for responding. Remember that sometimes God's answers to prayer requests is no. Often this is a blessing. There's a saying "Rejection is God's protection." Let us cultivate a spirit of gratitude and complete trust in God's loving goodness as we conclude the first half of the novena and begin the second.
