Sorrowful Mysteries
 

Every Friday at Noon, Jesus gave us a very tender rosary. We always did the Sorrowful Mysteries on Friday at 12:00 noon. This was the first rosary received in the Sorrowful Mother Chapel before the exposed Eucharist. Rita was in an ecstatic state. Marty saw angels around the monstrance and Sorrowful Mother statue.

  

    

The Agony in the Garden

  1. Messenger: Be with Jesus in the Garden, alone with Him as if you are there and experiencing what He is about to undergo. Think of knowing all that you will suffer. See before you all that He is about to experience. Put yourself with Jesus in the Garden and feel deeply in your heart whatever the Spirit allows you to experience.
  2. Jesus: I am an endless furnace of love. My Heart is beating for each one of you here. See My Heart as it beats. Think of this beating. Think of the beating Heart!
  3. I pour out to you My endless love constantly. I never leave you. I am forever with you, second by second, minute by minute. I am forever present with you in this room the same as the day I knelt in the Garden. Be alone with Me. Empty your mind of any distractions, of any concerns. Be totally wrapped in the love that I am giving to you. Open your hearts wide and let Me unite ever so closely within your heart. I am Jesus, your most ardent Lover, on fire for love of you, My beloved ones. As I knelt in the Garden, I pondered the ways of your heart. My Heart ached for all the souls that would treat Me with such indifference and neglect. Comfort My aching Heart with your love for Me.
  4. Be with Me as I kneel and see all of the sufferings that I experience. But the sufferings that I experienced to My body were not My greatest sufferings. My greatest sufferings were the agonies that I experienced in My Heart for the endless souls that pay Me no heed, that never come to Me, that stay at such a distance. And I am in love with them, so deeply in love!
  5. I call out to you to take My plea seriously. My plea involves the salvation of souls. Open your hearts and let Me unite closely to you so that I can live in you. Through you I will touch My beloved ones that I love so dearly. How I love you this day, My precious ones. Be alone with Me, totally wrapped in My embrace. I am Jesus, your Savior, and I love you with the deepest, tenderest love. I pour My love out to you. Harken to Me. Let go!
  6. Hail Mary ...
  7. Hail Mary ...
  8. Jesus: Surrender! Surrender! Surrender! Open wide the gates to your hearts. You are so closed. You tap at My source so lightly when I am an ocean of endless love and mercy that I want to pour into your hearts. You must surrender to become closely united to Me. You think you are letting go. You are not letting go! You are holding on as tightly as you can hold on. You let go of what you want to let go of. I am calling you to more, to be so closely united that I can operate through you. Will you surrender or will you control everything that is in your life that pertains to Me? I want to live with you second by second, to operate in every deed that you do, to be one with you as you perform those deeds. You are My mighty soldiers to go into the war and to do My work. Surrender! Surrender! Surrender!
  9. Open wide the portals of your heart. Let me penetrate every cell of your being. I want such oneness with you. You do not comprehend My immense love. You must surrender!
  10. Consecrate yourself totally to My Heart and that of My Mother.

Song between decades: I come to you with greatest love, I am your loving Savior. I am your God, I died for you. I come to you this day.

   

 

Jesus Is Scourged at the Pillar

  1. Messenger: His body was beaten! His flesh was torn! He was scourged and bleeding!
  2. He stood in total surrender to His persecutors. He knew the Father's Will. He knew the plan of salvation, that He was dying for the salvation of all.
  3. He stood in such total submission to these men who treated Him so harshly. He did not answer back, always in compliance with the Father's Will. It is in compliance with His Will that our peace and joy lie. He has a plan for each one of us, His specially loved children.
  4. Jesus: They whipped Me! They tore My flesh! They treated Me with such harshness. I withstood all of this treatment. But the greatest agonies were not the agonies of My body but the agonies in My Most Sacred Heart for all the souls in their busy lives that have totally forgotten Me. I am in your midst and with you this very day and how many come to be with Me? A few! So big is this world and so few even realize that I am God and that I am truly present here with you!
  5. They will persecute you! They will treat you with such anger! Come to My Heart and know the immensity of My love. For, minute by minute, second by second, I am ever attentive to all of your needs. I am the most ardent Lover, waiting to be close to you. If you tap ever so gently, there is so much more!
  6. I pour My life out to you. My grace is My life. It is divine life that I give. Nothing on this earth compares to this divine life!
  7. Pray to be sensitive to My touch. Every time that I give you My grace I am touching you in a special way so that you may respond to all the graces that I am pouring out to you this day.
  8. I give to you My Heart as a sign of My immense love for you. See My Heart beating! See it, each pulse of My Heart! This is how I love you. Second by second, minute by minute, I am always there.
  9. I want to be one in you, to operate from you! You must surrender!
  10. Hail Mary…

Song between decades: I come to you with greatest love…

 

 

 

Jesus Is Crowned with a Crown of Thorns

  1. Messenger: They pounded into His head a crown of sharp, piercing thorns.
  2. Think of how it would be to have someone pound into your head thorns that would puncture your skull. The blood ran from these thorns down His face, into His eyes and into His ears.
  3. He had seen before Him in the Garden all of these things that they would do. Now He experienced exactly what He had seen. At any time, He could have stopped anything that happened because He was God! But because He loves each one of us with the deepest love, He allowed them to pound into His skull sharp, piercing thorns that punctured His head. He allowed them to beat Him and tear His flesh. He stood in total submission to the Will of the Father, His Heart ever beating, as it beats for us this day, with deepest love. The same Jesus that suffered this agony loves us with this same love this day. So many do not even think of Him. How His Heart was wounded and hurt for all His beloved ones!
  4. This is Jesus Christ. He is truly God! God took the form of a human being because He loved us so much. He took on our human nature. A divine person took on our human form!
  5. Who are we that God loves us this much?
  6. They spit on Him and they hollered obscenities at Him. Think of the things that irritate us this day. Even when people are not cruel to us, how we ponder in our minds things that we think someone may have done that might have been cruel! But Jesus came to show us the way. They pounded into His Head a crown of sharp, piercing thorns and He loves those who did this to Him. He asks us to love one another. His way is always love. He asks us to purify our hearts, not to give in to the ways of the mind, not to give in to thinking ill thoughts of our brothers, but to purify our hearts and focus on Him. His way is love, always love, not sizing up our brothers or ever thinking harshly of them. See them through His eyes, the eyes of love. See our brothers as the creation of our Father. How He loves each and every soul that He was beaten, that His flesh was torn, that He was crowned with thorns because He loves our brothers so much.
  7. Jesus: I want to tell each one of you this day of My immense love that I have for you. You do not realize how I am truly speaking here to you. You close your hearts. You cut yourself off from the grace I am giving to you. I truly love with the deepest love. Open up your hearts and surrender. My ways are so simple. My ways are truth! You must release yourselves and come to Me for all your needs. Realize that, minute by minute, second by second, I am dealing with you directly.
  8. The very hairs of your head are numbered. I am with you at this second and I am providing for every one of your cares and needs but your minds are busy and you think of all that you must do. When will you release yourself and let Me operate with you in every deed that you do? When will you become one with Me so that I can operate through you to do the work that is at hand? You are humans. When I become one with you, the might of God is within you. I can do in one second what a human cannot do in a million years. You must trust. You must surrender. You must let go. Let go now and be totally wrapped in My love, My intense love that I pour out to you, My beloved ones. Let go! Let go! Let go, for I am truly here and working in your heart.
  9. Song: Crown Him with many crowns, the Lamb upon His throne. His regal scepter knows no bounds, all kingdoms are His own. All Christians come and sing to Him Who died for thee and hail Him as thy Savior King for all eternity.
  10. Hail Mary…

Song between decades: I come to you with greatest love…

 

 

 

Jesus Carries His Cross

  1. Jesus: They gave Me a heavy cross that they placed on My shoulder and I carried My cross. I could hardly move but My thoughts were always of you and the immense love that I have for you.
  2. This world has rejected God! This world crucified Me! Why do you not realize that they will crucify you, that they will persecute you, that they will holler slanders against you? If they crucified Me, why should they treat you any differently when you spread My word?
  3. You are the soldiers that I send into battle, a battle to spread My love throughout this world. It is in your submissiveness and surrender that I can operate through you to give My love to this world.
  4. Surrender! Surrender! Surrender! I am calling out to you to take up your cross and go into battle, to battle for Me to spread this love, for souls will be lost to eternal damnation because they do not know My love.
  5. Time is drawing near. I tell you! I tell you! I tell you! As I spoke then, and many did not listen, I tell you today that I am depending upon you, My beloved ones. You must fight against the godlessness of this world. But you must go on. You must be My warriors that go into battle. Powered by the fire of My love, you can conquer the earth with your hearts filled with the immense love that I pour out to this world through you. You will be the light that will shine in the darkest night. You will be a city set on a hill that will shine to the rest of this world. Come to My Heart and take refuge in My Heart for I am truly God and I call out to you, My beloved ones, with such tender love this day.
  6. As I walked on and on with the heavy cross on My back, a cross which became heavier as I walked, your crosses seem to get heavier each day. Time is so short! The work you do here will help to lead souls to eternal happiness in heaven. Please listen to Me! Have courage! Pray to the Spirit for the fearlessness to do the job that is at hand. I send you into this world to preach the Gospel. You are My soldiers going into battle. You will light up this world. A city set on a hill will shine to the rest of this world. You are the city. You are My soldiers. I send you into battle.
  7. In battle there is bloodshed. On My way to Calvary I shed much blood for love of My beloved souls. I ask you to surrender and to do this work for Me this day for I truly gave My life for love of each precious soul. Will you not spread this love to a world that is in pain and hurting?
  8. Surrender! Surrender! Surrender! It is not by your own might that you will light up the world. It is only through My power radiating through you. It is only in your oneness with Me. The most important thing you can do is to spend time with Me each day, to become one in Me. Keep your focus on Me and all will fall into line for I am truly here and longing to operate from your hearts. I am the Almighty God. My power is endless, My love a source of such love that no human can even comprehend. I am God! I am speaking to you!
  9. Hail Mary ...
  10. Hail Mary ...

Song between decades: I come to you with greatest love…

 

  

 

Jesus Is Crucified and Dies on the Cross

  1. Jesus: I hung for three agonizing hours on the cross. My body was beaten, My head crowned with thorns. I breathed My last breath, My thoughts always of you, My beloved ones. I truly died for you.
  2. Do you not hear My plaintive cries, the cries that I am giving to you this day, to spread this love throughout the world? You are the backbone. You are the ones that will carry this out. You must be strong soldiers. I am speaking directly to you. You are going into battle. It is a hard battle. Do not be discouraged by the opposition that Satan has created for you. He will try to stop you at every turn, but you must be strong soldiers and you must stayed fixed in Me. Only if you are rooted in My love can you do the work that I am asking you to do. You are human. You, on your own, cannot do this work. This work is the work of lighting up the world with the fire of My love. You must be strong soldiers. You are truly battling a world that hates God. Come to My Heart and receive all that you need to light up this world.
  3. My Mother stood under My cross. My beloved Mother! How she loves each one of you. Go to the Heart of Mary and reside in her arms. Rest in her Heart. This is Her House. She is with each one of you on your journey. We love you with the tenderest love.
  4. As she stood by Me all through My life, she stands by your side. Think of that! Where you are sitting now, Mary is right by you. Do you feel her presence? Put yourself on the other side. Be alone with Us now. Let go of this world. Be touched by the grace of God, special grace that I am giving to you alone. The angels and saints are so present here at this Center. They are in the halls. You do not realize because you do not see. You must be alone with Me and let go of your world to be united ever closer and to see these things that I want to show you.
  5. See Me hanging on the cross. Do you see that? Do you need to see with your eyes? Do you know what you feel when you receive the Eucharist? You must reach more and more beyond your vision. Reach into your heart. I communicate in your heart. Such oneness I have with you in your heart! See beyond your eyes, beyond your ears, and go inside into your heart. Minute by minute, second by second, I am there! Mary is with you. My Father and the Holy Spirit are inside of you. You just do not see. Pray more for grace to partake in the life I want to give you.
  6. Pray to the Holy Spirit to open your eyes more and more to the things of God. You are all blind men! You do not realize the great gifts that you have. You must be lost in My Heart. Come to My Heart and let Me hold you close to My divine love!
  7. My love is burning and on fire for you. Do you see Me as I hang on the cross with My arms outstretched? I held on to nothing! I totally surrendered to the Will of the Father. I held nothing back. I gave My flesh and My blood. I was born in poverty in a stable and I died on the cross. I came to show you the way so that you might have life and have life to the full. Life is not life if it is not rooted in Me!
  8. Let Me pour My life out to you. Feel its vibrancy within you. I am truly with you this day and longing for closer union with you. Let go! Let go! Let go!
  9. It is in this time that you spend alone with Me that I can work in your heart. Do not look for visions. Do not look to hear things. Go inside of your heart and be alone with Me. Spend this time with Me each day and, through the day, spend short periods, minutes when you just close your eyes and focus on My presence with you, for I am truly present. I will work in your heart when you come to Me in these special moments.
  10. This time between noon and 3:00 p.m. is so important to Me. Spend this time focusing on being ever more united to Me and think of My passion. See Me as I hung on the cross. See My flesh torn! See the blood as it ran down My body. Spend this time each Friday focused from noon until 3:00 p.m. on My passion. It is in meditating on this passion that you will realize My immense love that I have for you. I truly gave My blood. I gave you My flesh. I give you My body and I give you My blood this day in the Eucharist. Come to Me and spend time with Me after Communion and let Me work in your heart, for I love you so dearly, My beloved ones. I am Jesus. Jesus! I love you so much!
