Today I have for you the fourth Joyful Mystery the Presentation coloring page. These free coloring pages have the same images as my Watercolor Rosary Cards. The 2-sided Mysteries of the Rosary Cards come in watercolors (painted by me) and in black and white in case your kids want to color their own copy. Print the already colored ones for easy, or the black and white ones to make them more personalized. Since I went through the trouble of drawing all the mysteries I’m happy to share with you coloring pages of each for free 🙂
Here’s the Third Joyful Mystery- the Nativity coloring page.
(Please download to your computer and open in a .pdf program like Adobe Acrobat before printing for the best results!)
“Observing the Law of Moses, they took Jesus up to Jerusalem to present him to the Lord. Now in Jerusalem there was a man named Simeon. He was an upright and devout man. It had been revealed to him by the Holy Spirit that he would not see death until he had set eyes on the Christ of the Lord. And when the parents brought in the child Jesus, he took him into his arms and blessed God. “Now, Master, you can let your servant go in peace, just as you promised. Because my eyes have seen the salvation which you have prepared for all the nations to see. A light to enlighten the pagans and the glory of your people Israel. And he said to Mary his mother, “You see this child: he is detined for the fall and for the rising of many in Israel, destined to be a sign that is rejected.” And a sword will pierce your own soul too- so that the secret thoughts of many may be laid bare.” And they went back to Nazareth, and the child grew into maturity, and he was filled with wisdom; and God’s favor was with him.”
Mary and Joseph show such obedience in this mystery. Not only have they been obedient to God in birthing and raising His son Jesus Christ, but they also were obedient to all of the Jewish Laws and customs of their time. May we strive for that perfect obedience to Jesus both in our hearts and in what we do and say.
