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 10:

FAITH CONQUERS FEAR

part three Our Lady's Meditation

          My dear little children, I ask you to contemplate in your heart the rewards of an open, sincere heart. The Magdalene'' love was surpassed only by John's. And her bravery in going forth to anoint His body was but another outward sign of her witness to her faith which allowed my Divine Son to reveal Himself to her as the Risen Christ.

          Mary of Magdala's heart was filled with gratitude. Nowhere did pride enter into her heart. She never for a moment considered herself worthy of the great privilege bestowed upon her. She did not seek other than to tell His beloved Apostles so that their faith, hope, and love might be rekindled.

          O! Little children, do you not see that faith must walk through the darkness, led by trust and moved forward by love. For each of you thee is this darkness, when faith alone is all that is left to you. It is then, my children, when my Divine Son is closest to you, giving to your soul those supernatural impulses to keep moving into His embrace.

          Behold with what incredulity the Apostles, save John, received Mary's witness of and for the Truth. Their own faith was still but an ember. Their hope was yet a seedling, which had not taken root. But when Mary told them, "He is Risen", their souls were awakened from the long, terrible darkness. This awakening permitted God's light to return to them, and thus their own hope began to grow deep roots.

          How they each longed to see that all their fears might be alleviated. How each yearned to go to the tomb, see with his eyes its emptiness, and greet anew the Risen Lord. But, their moment was yet to come, as their test of faith; their purification required them to ponder all these things in the Light of Faith.

          Dear children, be as simple, humble children. Do not be afraid to walk out into the unknown armed with faith. Let your faith be fully formed in holy trust, and let that which forms both faith and trust be the Love of God and the desire to please Him in all things.

          Little children, He is Risen! He has conquered death. Why then do you concern yourself with the material concerns of your body, which are anchors that tie you to the world? Lift up your hearts and recognize the Glory which awaits all who, loving my Divine Son, pick up their cross and follow Him. These are my faithful ones who shall persevere until the end. O! What joy awaits all whose faith is sure and whose trust is absolute, even unto death.

          With Love do they live, in Love do they die, only to find eternal Love their abode.

          Hurry my children. Hurry into my Son's embrace and let your hearts rest secure in the Glory that lies beyond the darkness.
