LENTEN MEDITATIONS:
IT IS CONSUMMATED!

To print out entire text of Today's issue, go to SECTION ONE and SECTION TWO
    INTRODUCTION
      These Meditative Lessons on the Sorrowful Mysteries of the Rosary which encompass the Passion and Death of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ 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 during Lent 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 Passion of Our Lord...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." During Lent we bring these 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 "It is Consummated!, as well as the books on the Joyful Mysteries - "Come, Let us Adore Him", and the Glorious Mysteries - "My Lord and my God!", and the 100 Meditative Lessons compiled in "THE HIDDEN WAY" click on BOOKS.

Meditative Lesson 1:

JESUS ENTERS JERUSALEM

part one

Dear Father, As our Blessed Mother had told me during Advent, she would again give me lessons and meditations on our Dear Lordís Sacred Passion. She now tells me to write that I am in deep bodily suffering, and feel also great heaviness of heart to correspond in some small degree to that which Jesus endured so that all mankind might be redeemed. I have tested His Voice, as she desires of me. I am filled with holy peace and thus I write:

"Hosanna! Blessed is He Who comes in the name of the Lord! Blessed is the King of Israel!"

John 12: 13

         I am near Jerusalem. That is, I am certainly within the cityís boundaries,but upon a road which leads into the town proper through one of the many gates. Our Lady tells me to notice the enormous crowd which is everywhere:men, women, children abound. They are on the hills which look down upon the road. They line, even clog, the road and all are animated. I can see in their faces, particularly their eyes, a great sign of expectation. I notice that even in the houses people have come to the doorways, windows and balconies, and gaze longingly up the road. These people, though also filled with anticipation, are more reserved; I should say that those whom I see are of a more respectful demeanor. Those that our Heavenly Mother point out to me appear to be of a wealthier class, but I do not think or understand that this is the reason for their respectful attitude. Rather, I am given to understand that these people, mostly women of varying ages, are awaiting the Master-Jesus Christ-in a solemn act of veneration. The Holy Women of Jerusalem!

          The sound of the crowd, which keeps growing in number, increases until it becomes a din, a veritable babble of voices. Suddenly a louder cry is heard. It comes from several men who have reached higher lookout positions by climbing trees, or high rooftops. A shout. Another cry. And now the people realize the moment is at hand and they literally knock one another about, jostling for a better position. The young men in this large assembly begin to tear palm fronds from nearby trees and, holding them aloft, begin to wave them as banners. And the fever pitch mounts.
