Mother of God:  The joyful mysteries are a harbinger of future events. They are overfilled with joy, despite the fact that they foreshadow painful things. The joy, for behold, God fulfills His promise. Mankind is endowed with grace. God Himself comes to us, to people, on the Earth, to overcome forever the original sin and to make amends to His Father for his unfaithful brothers. Hope and joy flow from these mysteries; the truth about Salvation and eternal happiness can not be eclipsed by the presage of pain. These mysteries prepare the soul to accept the cross.
