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 four Our Lady's Meditation

          My little children, rejoice with me as you contemplate the love with which Lazarus' sister worked to keep alive the faith which was so severely shaken as she watched my Divine Son die. In the depths of her heart, her love was so strong that it fanned the embers of her faith. She alone of all the holy women willed to believe all Jesus had said particularly His Resurrection. Yes, she had witnessed her own brother's generous reward for his faith, his resurrection, yet beset by human grief and sorrow, the temptations she fought were fierce. The work to which she set her hands was holy work. Each of her movements was a prayer, a plea for God to strengthen her faith against all doubts. She would not listen to the whisperings of the evil one. She sought solace in work meant to honor the Master, and to comfort me, His Mother, in all possible ways.

          She took courage from her love and made of it a torch, which shone brightly against all the doubts, torments, and fears expressed by the Apostles, the men chosen to carry the Gospel message to all the world.

          Mary of Magdala, once a great sinner, had learned that to pray is to love, and love that is pure is prayer. In all she did and said, she daily grew in love, being purified in the great test when my Divine Son died and His Sacred body was placed in the tomb. She had known the darkness of sin. My Son gave her light and freedom to continue her journey to Eternal Life. Therefore she faced the darkness with faith and love, and found herself blessed to be the one chosen by my Divine Son to reveal His Resurrection to His Apostles and, thus, to the world.

          Little ones, be with her as she hurries from the empty tomb, her only cry was to God to assist her in finding again her Savior. Be with her as she comes upon the ''man'' who questions her gently. It was His gentleness, which calmed her emotions, and thus when He pronounced her name her whole being recognized Him, Whom she loved above all else.

          Little children, you, too, must be of great faith. You must constantly seek my Divine Son, and allow your hearts to grow still as Mary of Magdala did. Only then shall you recognize Him, Who dwells in you and does not desire to leave you. It is your unchecked human passion, your lower human ego that forces my Divine Son out, leaving you as the empty tomb.

          The moment is coming, my children, when my Divine Son will reveal Himself to all who truly seek Him. He alone will choose the time and place, but you must constantly prepare for this meeting.

          Come, my little ones. Journey with Mary of Magdala as she runs to her Savior. Do you truly seek to run to Him? Or are your steps languid, weighed down by the world to which you remain attached?

          Even as Mary rushed to the tomb at the first of the dawn, still she left behind her all the work of her hands (the funeral spices and perfumes) that when she encountered the Risen Christ, nothing impeded the meeting.

          Throughout the remainder of her life, Mary of Magdala grew in love. She flew to eternal life on wings of joy because she left behind the world and focused only on Him, her Beloved.

          Never did she forget the moment of their meeting after His Resurrection. Never did she forget what He had first suffered on Calvary, where she stood and kept watch, suffering with Him out of love.

          Therefore, my children, if you would persevere, then follow the example given you in Sacred Scripture of Mary of Magdala. Pray and become a living prayer, and you shall see the Glory which lies beyond the darkness of your sin-filled world. As Mary bravely encountered her own Calvary and did not despair, so must you know and recognize that already your world has passed beyond its agony in the garden of olives, and now walks the tortured path to Calvary. Keep your eyes fixed on my Son. He shall be with you, as He promised. And I, His Mother, am with Him, to guide your steps along the path. The Glory cannot come before the Suffering. The Suffering is the Mercy of God united to my Son's Sacred Passion that many, countless souls shall be saved.

          Be not afraid. Be prepared. There is nothing to fear for those who love my Son and truly seek Him. Be open to the Holy Spirit Who is Truth, and you shall sing the praises of the Trinity for all eternity, having done your part in bringing to fulfillment the Age of the Divine Will.
