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 12:

BEHOLD HIS GLORY!

part three

          And another scene is immediately shown to me. It is a damp, dank, awful prison cell in some building. A single torch gives a dim light and I can make out a figure who is sitting against a moldy, fettered wall, his head inclined to the right. A large rat scurries about the debris, but the man does not notice.

          Suddenly all is brightness, a silvery light more dazzling than sunlight. Everything is transformed by this light which comes from, surrounds, and comprises Our Lord'' glorified Body.

          The man in the cell is Joseph of Arimethea. He, too, has been maltreated, but his sorrow is obviously greater than his physical misery.

          "My Lord!" he exclaims, moving from his sitting position to kneel before Jesus, Who smiles at him with Infinite Love.

          "Now that you have witnessed the truth, you will follow the Light into eternity. No longer be afraid. Soon you will be released. Go to the house where My Apostles are gathered and wait and pray with them."

          "Yes, Lord, Yes!" Joseph's prayer is complete, from his heart. But Jesus is already gone, and I follow to yet another place.

          I am within the temple, which is a place of chaos, as on-lookers, temple guards, priests, scribes, and general citizens have come to gaze and exclaim over the damage to this place in the Friday afternoon earthquake. Off in a side room, I see Gamaliel, who rests his head upon his arms as he sits at a table, covered in dust and debris. His body posture is one of defeat, as that which lies in ruin at his feet is proof of the reality of Jesus Christ the Messiah. The sign he had needed was given. But he did not have the faith to believe when the Messiah was in the midst of the people.

          "You have witnessed the power of God," says Our Lord, Who stands before Gamaliel.

          Startled, the elderly man looks up. His face has aged considerably since the day of the Sacred Passion. "Yes, the Power of God. He said I would receive this sign. But I was blind and stubborn and did not recognize Him."

          "Behold, Gamaliel, you have learned a great lesson. Your eyes saw first God's Justice and Power. Now behold His Glory, which has been won for all who will believe."

          Jesus' full Divinity transforms His body into its Glorified state, and Gamaliel is so shaken, so filled with awe, reverence, and respect that he can barely rise to his feet.

          "O! My God, forgive an old man whose wisdom was clothed in pride. I am your servant, the least of them, if You will have me."

          "Gamaliel, it will be your voice which shall shake the walls which remain in this temple. It will be your voice, which will help My Apostles to establish the Gospel, which I have given to all the world. Let Israel hear and believe, for the Kingdom of God lives forever in the hearts of the just."

          "O! My Lord, all You say I will do. I. May God have mercy on Israel."

          "I am Mercy. Israel has rejected Me. Know that many generations shall pass before Israel proclaims its messiah, who will be not I, but My enemy. Know that when this happens the Kingdom of God is at hand and I will return to claim My Kingdom. Go now to the house where my Apostles and My Holy Mother are gathered in prayer. You will stay among them until your heart is filled with the knowledge you must have to go forward. I bless you, Gamaliel. Speak of Me often that all might know and love Me."

          I am again above Jerusalem within Our Lady's embrace and she beckons me to look at the distant horizon. As if by a miracle, which it can only be, I see a succession of scenes where Jesus appears. I recognize His meeting with the two men on the road to Emmaus. I see also that those disciples which He had sent to Antioch to prepare the people to receive the Gospel, see the Glorified Christ and are instructed as to their duties. To all, Jesus' Love is paramount, and upon all, His Peace descends, leaving each heart renewed, stronger.

          There are hundreds of these brief scenes. They are swift, and I do not recognize each person to whom Our Lord appears. But I do not need to know whom. What is important, I am given to understand, is that all of these apparitions occur in a short span of earthly time, and many occur simultaneously. How wonderful is the life, which awaits us when we are no longer tied and bound to our heavy bodies, not subject to the laws of time, place, distance, etc. Then very gently, led by Our Blessed Mother, I find that all of these interior visions fade and I am in my own room, pen in hand, and I sense the profound peace and renewed heart which I have also received. May God be praised!
