"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 8:

A LESSON IN FORGIVENESS

part one

      Dear Father, every day despite my many failings, God in His Infinite Patience reveals to me more fully what His Divine Will is and the vital necessity to always bow in submission to it. We do not have to have all the answers. We do not have to see how everything will turn out. Our unity to the Divine Will is first. He will take care of the rest. As I remain in bed, too weak to breathe, our Dear Lady comes and asks me to write: I am filled with Holy Peace.

      She says, Father, that I must not worry that in my lifetime many, particularly the scholars, theologians, the clerics will reject these humble Lessons, just as many reject the messages for the world. The validity of the words will bear good fruit and in God's time. All glory and honor shall be given to Him Who has chosen to work through the weakest, most wretched of all His children. So having tested Our Lady's voice, I begin.

"For the Son of man is come to save that which was lost."
Matthew 18: 11
          I remain in Mary's room still upon my knees, still sated with His peace, which flowed so freely into Mary and was returned with love enveloped in humility.

          Our Heavenly Mother's prayer is interrupted by a soft knock at the door. The sound is repeated and a voice calls softly:

          "Holy Mother, it is I, Mary of Lazarus' household."

          The voice penetrated Our Lady's contemplation. With what grace does she rise from her knees. She calls out.

          "Peace, Mary. Please come in."

          The door swings open to reveal Lazarus' sister upon the threshold, candle lit in the pre-dawn darkness.

          "I didn't wish for you to remain alone in the darkness. I have brought you a new candle."

          While the Magdalene is busy replacing the new candle in its holder, Our Lady's gracious smile blesses her. Our Lady's eyes catch the candle flame and her smile grows deeper, more mysterious for she instantly recognizes that the candle flame will no longer remain a solitary light in a bare room in Jerusalem. No! The light, the True Light, has been revealed. Now in the fullness of the Father's time this light shall spread a river of light, across the world. It shall be seen in every corner of the earth. It shall be offered to many and be received and thus will it grow stronger.

          Then the Magdalene turns and comes to Mary, who has taken a seat in the only chair in the room.

          "Dear Mother, I have come to tell you that we have prepared all the funeral spices, perfumes, balms, and ointments. All is in readiness. Shortly it will be dawn. The Passover will be fulfilled. We, the other women and I, will go to His tomb to properly anoint the body. Will you come, Holy Mother? I do not want to cause you any further distress, but my heart could not be at peace until I had asked."

          "Be at peace, my dear child. You have asked and my own heart gives thanks for all you and the other women have done. No, Mary. I will remain here. It is where He desires me to be."

          "I will tell the others. We will make haste and report to you upon our return."

          Our Blessed Mother's face, so serene, does not give away her sacred, holy secret of Jesus' Resurrection. She knows her Son will reveal Himself to those whom He has chosen at the appointed time.

          "I bless you in His Name and thank you. Mary, has there been any word of the others?"

          "Jonathan came earlier, accompanied by James. They had been throughout the city and even among some of the outlying districts. Many disciples and the other Apostles are safely under Lazarus' care."

          "And Judas of Kerioth? Is there no word? I had wanted to talk to him, more than anyone else."
