The Fourth Luminous Mystery:
The Transfiguration

The Fifth Luminous Mystery:
The Institution of the Eucharist
Meditation: At the Last Supper, Jesus offers His body and blood, under the signs of bread and wine, and washes the feet of the Apostles. He knows that Judas has betrayed Him and His hour has come.
