MEDITATIVE LESSONS ON THE GLORIOUS MYSTERIES:
"MY LORD AND MY GOD!"

    INTRODUCTION
      These Meditative Lessons on the Glorious Mysteries of the Rosary which encompass the time from the Tomb through the Ascension were imparted via both interior visions and interior locutions to Cyndi Cain, the Hidden Flower of the Immaculate Heart from the Blessed Mother of God after Pentecost in 1993. Cyndi relates that, "while I saw many details in these interior visions, only certain details were to be written down. Therefore, these lessons are not meant to be a detailed geographical or historical account, nor are they meant to pinpoint all the intricate details one might wish to have knowledge of regarding the time of of the Resurrection and beyond...for the importance of each lesson lies not in the descriptive passage or dialogue, but in Our Lady's own meditations which follow each interior vision. These meditations are meant to strengthen us in our faith during this our exile - particularly in these end times when the Holy Catholic Church will be ripped apart by apostasy and schism...for Our Blessed Mother wants our faith to be as strong as an anchor. For our faith to be such, we must have the faith of a simple, little child." As an added bonus for Easter we bring the special chapter on the Resurrection to you and ask the Holy Spirit to give all the enlightenment and discernment to learn and grow from these meditative lessons that all may persevere in the time of the Great Darkness which looms ever closer. For those who would like the complete works of "My Lord and my God", as well as the books on the Joyful Mysteries - "Come, Let us Adore Him", and the Sorrowful Mysteries - "It is Consummated!", click on BOOKS.

Meditative Lesson 9:

"WHOM DO YOU SEEK?"

part three

          She [Mary of Magdala] rushes from the tomb. The soldiers, meanwhile, have come to a decision. One goes toward the other Marys to prevent them from coming closer, while the other two have left to report to their captain what they believe to be a clever trick. They cannot say they slept, for it would mean severe punishment. They will place all the blame on the Jews, and once again stir hatred between the conquerors and their victims.

          Mary is truly beside herself. She starts toward the other women, but halts. There is another path, which winds through the garden. She begins to run down the path, stumbling in her haste, her heart crying out over and over, "O, my master!"

          She goes about a hundred feet when she sees a man, plainly clothed, higher up upon the slope. He seems to be ending to this part of the garden.

          "Whom do you seek?" The man inquires of Mary in a gentle voice.

          The Magdalene falls to her knees. All strength seems to have gone from her now. She looks up, her eyes swimming with tears, blurring her vision.

          "The Master. Please, if you know where they have taken His body, tell me. I will not speak of it to anyone."

          "Why do you seek the living among the dead?" the man inquires again, even more gently. But Mary is heart-broken and can only cry. The man comes forward toward her and says: "Mary!" Instantly the Magdalene raises her head. She brushes aside her tears and it is then that Jesus reveals Himself to her. Mary's whole being is ecstatic. She scrambles to her feet, runs forward, and falls to her knees, near the Man she now recognizes.

          "No, Mary, do not touch Me, for I have not yet gone to the Father."

          "Master! O! Master, it is true."

          "Yes, Mary, and your faith has deserved to witness the truth. Go now. Return to the house and report to My Apostles what you have seen and heard. Tell them that I precede them. I go to Galilee where I shall greet them."

          And He is gone. Not as it was when He appeared to His Mother. He is simply gone and Mary remains on her knees, kissing the ground where His Sacred feet were placed.

          Then His words, His command to her penetrates. Once again, she is on her feet and she runs. She does not stop for anyone. Her face is filled with joy beyond description. She must announce the news. She must hurry! And I am barely able to keep up with her as she literally tears along the path and heads back to Jerusalem. She wants to shout to all of Jerusalem of the Resurrection, but she is also obedient. She will tell the Apostles, and, of course, His Mother. O! How great is her joy!
