I° MYSTERY : The Annunciation in Marl
At that time, the angel Gabriel was sent from God to a town in Galilee called Nazareth to a virgin betrothed to a man of the house of David, named Joseph. The virgin's name was Mary. Came to her and said, Hail, full of grace: the Lord is with you! At these words she was troubled and wondered what had such a greeting. The angel said to her: Fear not, Mary, for you have found favor with God Behold, conceive a child, give him the light and Jesus will be called great and dell'Altissimo called son, the Lord God will give him the throne of his father David and reign forever over the house of Jacob, and his kingdom will have no end. Then Mary said to the angel, How is this possible? No husband. The angel replied: The Holy Spirit will come upon you, at you with its shadow the power of the Most High. One who will come will be called holy, the Son of God See also Elizabeth, your relative, in his old age, has conceived a child and this is the sixth month for her, saying that all sterile: nothing is impossible for God Maria said, Behold the handmaid of Siguore, let it be to me according to your word. And the angel departed from her. (Luke 1:26-38)

Then Mary said: My soul magnifies the Lord and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior, for he has regarded the low estate of his handmaiden. (Lk 1,39-48)

Even Joseph, who was of the house and the family of David, in the town of Nazareth in Galilee and Judea went up in the city of David called Bethlehem, to be registered with Mary, his wife, who was pregnant. While they were there, it is for her day of birth. Gave birth to her firstborn son, wrapped him in swaddling clothes and laid him in a manger, because there was no place for them in the. In that region there were shepherds keeping watch over the guard doing their flock. An angel of the Lord appeared to them and the glory of the Lord of light enveloped them. They were taken by great fear, but the angel said: Fear not, here's news you a great joy to be around the people: to you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. That the sign for you: you will find a babe wrapped in swaddling clothes and lying in a manger. And immediately there appeared a multitude of the heavenly who praised God and saying, Glory to God in the highest and on earth peace to men whom he loves. (Luke 2,1-44)

When the time came for their purification according to the law of Moses, brought the child to Jerusalem to offer it to the Lord ... Every firstborn male is sacred to the Lord, and to offer in sacrifice a pair of doves or young pigeons, as the law of the Lord. Now in Jerusalem there was a man named Simeon, a just man and fearing God, who was waiting for the consolation of Israel, the Holy Spirit that was upon him he announces that he would not have seen death without first seeing the Messiah of the Lord. So moved by the Spirit, he went to the temple, and while the parents carried the child Jesus Christ to fulfill the Law, he took her in his arms and blessed God: Now let us, Lord, that your servant go in peace according to thy word, because my eyes have seen your salvation, you've prepared ahead of all peoples, a light to enlighten the Gentiles and for glory to your people Israel. The father and the mother of Jesus wondered the things you said about him. Simeon blessed them and said to Mary his mother: He is here to ruin and the resurrection of many in Israel, a sign of contradiction, because they are revealed the thoughts of many hearts. And to you a sword pierce the soul. (Lk 2,22-35)

The Jesus' parents went every year to Jerusalem for the feast of Easter. When he was twelve years I went up again according to custom, but spent the days of the feast, while they reflected the way back, the boy Jesus remained in Jerusalem, but the parents did not know it. Believing in the caravan, made a day trip, and then began to look for him among their relatives and acquaintances, not having found him, they went looking for him in Jerusalem. After three days they found him in the temple sitting among the teachers, listening to them and questioned them. And all those who heard were full of wonder at his understanding and his answers. Were astonished to see him and his mother said to him: Son, why have you done so? Behold, your father and I, anxious, we were seeking. And he answered: Why am I looking for? Did you not know that I must be in my Father's house? But they did not understand his words. Then left and returned with them to Nazareth and was about them. His mother kept all these things in her heart. (Lk 2,41-51)
