The Joyful Mysteries are prayed on Mondays and Saturdays, and they remind the faithful Catholics of Christ’s birth. Each decade corresponds with a different mystery. Starting with the Annunciation for the first decade, try meditating on these scenes sequentially with each decade that you say (they may also be said during the whole Christmas season):

  1. The Annunciation (Luke 1:26–38)

  2. The Visitation (Luke 1:39–56)

  3. The Nativity (Luke 2:1–21)

  4. The Presentation (Luke 2:22–38)

  5. The Finding of the Child Jesus in the Temple (Luke 2:41–52)
