Today, boys and girls, we will pray the Luminous Mysteries. Why today? Because it’s Thursday. Why Thursday? Because the Church said so. And nobody contradicts Holy Mother the Church. First, we must begin with definitions. Luminous: full of or shedding light; bright or shining, especially in the dark. It is by no small coincidence that Satan is given the name ‘Lucifer,’ the one who brings light. And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Mystery: a religious truth that one can know only by revelation. It is by no small coincidence that the false church depicted in Rev. 17 is Mystery Babylon, the apostate mother church. And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH. Have you been given the revelation as to the identity of this abominable false church? If not, here are some hints: The first Luminous Mystery is the Baptism in the Jordan. By this mystery we are to understand the Roman Catholic Church orthodox in its teaching of the biblical Christian view of the Trinity. This is a condition necessary to the fulfilling of the prophecy of Mystery Babylon, the apostate professing Christian church. The second Luminous Mystery is the Wedding at Cana. By this mystery we are to understand three things: 1. Jesus always obeys Mary’s commands. 2. Always pray to Jesus through Mary if you want your prayers answered. 3. Marriage is one of the seven sacraments of the Roman Church. The third Luminous Mystery is the Proclamation of the Kingdom. By this mystery we are to understand two things: 1. Peter is the rock upon whom the Church is built. 2. Peter and all his apostolic papal descendents have been given the keys by which they rule the Church; opening or closing the kingdom of Heaven at will. The forth Luminous Mystery is the Transfiguration. By this mystery we are to understand that all faithful Catholics are to be transfigured like Jesus and therefore have no need to ‘try the spirits to see if their church’s teachings be so.’ The fifth Luminous Mystery is the Institution of the Eucharist. By this mystery we are to understand two things: 1. The biblical orthodoxy of the doctrine of Transubstantiation. 2. The biblical orthodoxy of the sacrificial nature of the Mass. Okay, boys and girls, let’s clutch our Rosary beads and begin counting!
