DAILY CATHOLIC   MONDAY, March 9 1998   volume 9, no. 48


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.

Meditative Lesson 5:


part two

     The apostles have now taken their seats and Jesusí gaze sees them all, even the betrayer who, looking directly at our Lord, feigns a innocent smile and toys with the silken fringe on the cord about his waist.


      "Soon I shall no longer be with you. Yet, I know that you remain unprepared and I have prayed and asked the Father to help you. Thus, I give unto you a new covenant which from this night forward until all time ends shall be the mark of My true Church, the mark of all who, having believed in Me, bear Me in their hearts."

      Jesus then lefts the plate with the small loaf of bread to Heaven and He raises His eyes, which glow with a power and majesty that simply transform Him as He becomes surrounded by light. And He says.

And lowering the loaf, he blesses and breaks it. John takes the first morsel, then Peter. And the blessed plate which is now truly our Lordís own sacred body is received by all present. I observe with what awe, reverence and astonishment they take and eat of the body of their Master, still not fully understanding but undoubtedly understanding in their souls that Jesus has given them yet another miracle. Judas, however, fingers the morsel of bread and quickly pushes it into his mouth and reaches instantly for the last dredges of wine in his cup to wash it down, as if it was spoiled, rotten flesh he was eating.

      Only Jesus notices and He seems already bent under a very heavy weight. But it is for the others and for all in future generations that He continues:

      His long, tapering fingers lift now the chalice filled with wine. And holding it aloft, gazing up to His Father, the same luminous transformation takes place and He says:

And the chalice is lowered and the same order proceeds as each apostle sips the new covenant. John, having sipped, puts his head against our Lordís arm and he begins to cry, while Jesusí gaze is forward. Judas, having taken the chalice, can barely bring it to his lips, which seem to snarl in anticipation of the contact. And having forced the sip, he now swipes his sleeve across those lips and in this state of agitation, he examines the sleeve for only he knows what. All of this occurs under our Lordís observance. Now our Lord sits down and John literally cradles his head against his Master, and his tears wet the sleeve of His tunic.

      Jesus then says, quietly but profoundly, looking at Judas: "Do what you have to do quickly."

      And in a haste born perhaps of fear Judas grabs his mantle and he charges up the stairs and leaves the Last Supper room.

      For a moment the other apostles stir, but they quiet down believing Jesus has sent Judas upon an errand of mercy. Only John keeps his head lowered, and weeps. The last few fragments of bread and the few drops of wine in the chalice remain in front of Jesus, and leaning close to His beloved disciple, He whispers: "When you are able to return here after the hour has come, preserve these remnants as a testimony to you of My Love, and give them into the care of My Holy Mother, and your head - Peter. Preserve them, for from these first I shall continue the miracle throughout all future generations by successors in your line."

      And John, somewhat calmer at Jesusí tone, nods, wipes his eyes and looks at Jesus with such sadness that Peter, ever the optimist says: "Come on, boy. Youíd think weíd been to a funeral. Nobodyís died that I know of."

      And Peter does not hear Johnís low, plaintive, "Not yet."

      But Jesus rises and bids His apostles follow Him. And together they leave this holy room where Jesus has given them His own Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity, to be their food in all ages to come.

      I remain in the room, on my knees, gazing at this first Eucharist until our Blessed Mother calls me to write.
