|INTRODUCTION: Jesus says in Matthew 11: 28,These Lessons/Meditations are a numerical series of 100 instructions given to Cyndi Cain, the Hidden Flower of the Immaculate Heart over the time period of January 6, 1995 to March 1, 1995 (Ash Wednesday). Though there are a few of these Lessons/Meditations from Our Lady, the majority are from Jesus Himself. He asks that these simple messages with deep theological insight be called "THE HIDDEN WAY" for it is in being truly hidden - obedient, humble little ones - that we are lifted up with Him in sharing His Passion and ultimately His glory. He asks that we hide ourselves in His wounds and there meditate upon His Passion and Death, contemplating upon His words in Matthew, "for there is nothing hidden, that shall not be revealed: nor secret that shall not be known" so that through discernment and meditation we can be drawn closer to the Triune Divinity and understand more clearly the role each of us is to play in His Plan of Salvation for ourselves and others. Only by immersing ourselves in Christ can we understand this as the words from the prayer "Anima Christi" - the essence of the salvific nature of Christ's Passion and Death - states: "O Good Jesus, hear me. Within Thy Wounds, hide me...so that hidden in Your Most Sacred Wounds, I may quickly come to great holiness for love of Thee." This is the essence of these special Lessons/Meditations especially Lesson/Meditation #60 from Jesus entitled, THE ESSENCE OF THE FIFTH BEATITUDE: "Blessed are the Merciful, for they shall obtain Mercy."|

THE ESSENCE OF THE FIFTH BEATITUDE: "Blessed are the Merciful, for they shall obtain Mercy." (Imparted on January 26, 1995
to the Hidden Flower by Our Lord)
Beloved Hidden Flower of My Mother’s Immaculate Heart, I am with you as you all trust in Me. Be obedient to all I ask of you and your family. Today, I will speak to all My children these words: "BLESSED ARE THE MERCIFUL, FOR THEY SHALL OBTAIN MERCY."Beloved Hidden Flower of My Mother’s Immaculate Heart, I am with you as you all trust in Me. Be obedient to all I ask of you and your family. Today, I will speak to all My children these words: "BLESSED ARE THE MERCIFUL, FOR THEY SHALL OBTAIN MERCY."
This statement is very clear. It is truly the least complex of all the Beatitudes and reflects My love in you and through you. Yet, so confused is the world and its complex laws and social customs that the supernatural quality of Mercy is no longer relevant and you try to grasp it with mere human intellect, but not with your soul’s intellect.
I Am MERCY. Mercy is love, forgiveness, compassion, empathy. It is that sublime quality which looks upon each of your brothers and sisters and, by virtue of Mercy, allows you to see Me - transcending the human weaknesses.
Beloved little children of My Sacred Heart, Mercy streams from love, and is an expression not so much of human love as of Divine Love. Mercy is that quality by which I seek to draw all of My children back into one fold, one flock. Mercy forgives, and, in its forgiveness, it seeks to forget the wrong or injury.
Mercy is that which reflects deeply within the heart and soul and assists one to rise above all human emotions and feelings, where it may act upon the human will and be expressed properly in human speech and action, and through thought which is ever-mindful of the sublime dignity of each person.
Mercy leans towards a docile, peaceful and ‘sweet’, as you would call it, disposition. O! Little children, it is so much more. Mercy must bear the attribute of detachment from self and from attachment to all worldly things. Mercy, whose eyes are fixed upon Me, sees Me and loves Me, and causes all transitory things to be seen and understood in My Light. One detached from self and unattached to any worldly thing, Mercy is then free to speak, think and act under My Grace.
Mercy flows freely into your soul in every Sacrament of My Church. It is the glow upon the altar during Holy Mass. Mercy streams from the Crucifix, upon which you gaze and to which you cling. Upon the Cross Divine Mercy became fully manifest and fulfilled as My Most Sacred Heart, already stilled by mortal death, pierced by a lance gave forth the very last drops of Blood and Water for all the world.
Many years ago I spoke to My well-beloved holy Blessed Faustina. To her I revealed the depth, the Divine Mystery of Divine Mercy. O! It is fully My Will that all of My children not only read and meditate upon the teachings given by Me to Faustina, but to live My Mercy, pray for My Mercy and ceaselessly speak of My Mercy to all.
Mercy does not cling to itself. It does not isolate itself and, as it were, cause the soul to seek My Mercy only for itself.
Divine Mercy does the opposite. First it draws the soul to Me, where it is comforted, cleansed and strengthened. The soul, trusting Me implicitly, then begins to resemble Me and it searches for every opportunity to express My Mercy to others. He who knows the quality of Divine Mercy is spurred on by the Holy Spirit to be living Mercy to all.
Little children, as I foretold to My Blessed Faustina, Divine Mercy foreshadows the end times, and it must come as I Will for it to come before the Justice of the Father.
But the fullness of My Mercy is dependent upon your will to seek it at every moment, and having received it to give it to others. All who do this according to their state of life shall, upon their death, find that I, Myself, shall greet them to place upon them the garment of Mercy. Thus arrayed, the soul appears before the Triune Divinity and presents itself humbly for judgment. All sins, all failings, faults and weaknesses are veiled before My Eternal Father’s eyes, for He sees the reflection of Divine Mercy which so closely resembles Me, Jesus Christ. Thus the merciful soul receives even more Mercy and enjoys for all eternity the Beatific Vision.
Now is that time when the fullness of all I gave to Blessed Faustina must be fulfilled. To have fullness of My Mercy then seek to aid in the firm foundation of the cloistered and contemplative Institute of Divine Mercy, for I Will to use these consecrated women as chalices into which Divine Mercy is poured, and through their very life to pour out Mercy upon the world, softening even the most hardened heart. See, therefore, great devotion to My Mercy and live it, pray for it, and aid this new Institute.
It is that instrument, a visible sign by which you will know you live in the end times, and you will face these times with courage, strength, peace and mercy as I have promised, fearing nothing.
O! Be merciful, little children, as I am Merciful. Pray to be enlightened by the Holy Spirit and delay no longer in being mercy itself in this life of tears and sorrows.
How happy is he who understands My words. My Mercy shall be his strength now and his shield in Eternity. I love and bless you. Heed what I say, what I ask, for Mercy must come before the Justice!
