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.

Meditative Lesson 2:
FAREWELL TO THE HOLY WOMEN AND THE MOTHER
Dear Father, Our Heavenly Mother asks me to write again, desiring me, calling me to be one with the Divine Will. She speaks to me with such love, but also with grave urgency. She comforts me, while at the same time warning me that persecution shall grow even more fierce against me. This persecution shall, as it has always done in the past, serve as a means of purification, of strengthening in faith, hope and love. The persecution, in Godís plan, separates the wheat from the chaff. She asks me to write here that all I am given comes from God through interior vision and through interior locution. These lessons and meditations, as those previously given on the Divine Infancy, are not meant to be of great detail regarding specific descriptions of people, geography etc. Rather, I "see" what our Blessed Mother wants me to see, and write only that which she directs me to write. She gives the meditation in order to keep her little ones fully focused on the Divine Will, which is all that we shall have to rely on in the Time of Great Darkness. Having tested the Voice, I write as I am given to see:
"He said to them, 'Did you not know that I must be about my Fatherís
business?' And they understood not the word that he spoke unto them."
Luke 2: 49-50
It is late afternoon, for the shadows have grown long. The weather is warm and the flowers abound in this place where I see our Dear Lord sitting upon
a stone bench. Jesus is tall and of slender build. His garment today is clean and He appears almost emaciated by the gauntness of His holy face. Yet again I am drawn to His eyes. O! They cannot be described for to behold them is to behold the ardent gaze of Divine Love: so ardent as to make my poor, wretched heart feel as if it will burst, while I am instantly filled with holy remorse for all of my sins, failings and weaknesses. In this brief moment while I gaze upon My Jesus, I am overcome with hope and trust, and I want to run and throw myself into His arms never, ever to move!
Now there is a sound of footsteps and I turn to see an elderly man, nicely dressed, approach this quiet place where Jesus has withdrawn to pray and be with His Father.
"Master," the servant whispers respectfully.
"Yes?" answers our Lord who stirs, moves and rises, allowing by His movements the servant to approach.
"The household has quieted. The women have retired to their quarters with your Holy Mother. Lazarus has prepared a room where you may meet with those whom you desire. Afterwards, Master, the meal will be served." The servant looks intently at our Lord, no doubt noting the physical fatigue, and does not say that having the meal first would seem more prudent.
"Thank you, Jonathan. Go now and tell Lazarus and his sisters that I shall come. I will see the women first, one at a time, and then My Blessed Mother."
Jonathan bows and hurried off while Jesus steps into the sunshine and lifts His face toward Heaven. He prays - silently - and not even a breeze
disturbs His communication with His Father. All of nature responds with respect to the Divine Will. Then Jesus comes forward and I see Him so at peace. I am filled with His peace. It is unshakable. Nothing of the world can describe it or compare to it.
