Rosary Meditations
Instructions for Children and Parents


GLORIOUS MYSTERIES
JULY 15, 1995

The Resurrection

  1. See the picture of Jesus as He hangs on the cross, His withered body dead on the cross. See next to this the picture of Jesus as He rose from the tomb on the third day, victorious and covered in light. See so clearly in His hands and His feet the glorified wounds of Christ. This is our beloved Savior. He came to this world to save man from his sins and to give to him His divine life. We see so clearly, in His hands and His feet, these wounds.
  2. Jesus wants the little children to come to Him. The children should pray, pray the rosary. Children must tell other children about the love of God. Satan is pressing so hard on the youth! The youth are so open and thirsty! Older people, many times, are set in their ways. Children are young. They can hear about the love of God and change very quickly. We must reach the children and the children will carry the message of His love for many, many years. They will pray the rosary for the rest of their lives.
  3. Mary Magdalene went to the tomb. When she got there, the stone had been rolled back. She began to cry. While she was crying, she saw a man she thought was a gardener. It was Jesus. She recognized Jesus. She was overjoyed to see Jesus.
  4. "...'Father, forgive them; they do not know what they are doing.'..." (Lk. 23:34) We should always forgive our brothers. Jesus came to show us the way. Jesus forgave all those who persecuted Him. It is in loving God and loving one another that we will have peace, joy, and love within our hearts.
  5. As we are in our hearts, so shall we be in this world. We are called to holiness. We must pray. We must let go to Jesus.
  6. Come, give me life, abundant life. I thirst to be with Thee.
  7. Look at the starved children of this world. See their skinny little bodies. There is such suffering in this world today. We hold back from talking about the love of God for fear of what people will think. We must speak and tell all of the love of God. It is through these rosaries that we will touch many hearts.
  8. Jesus appeared to the Apostles in the upper room. The first time He appeared, Thomas was not with them. The second time, Thomas was with them. Thomas wanted to see the nail prints. Jesus said, "...Blessed are those who have not seen and yet believe." ( Jn. 20:29)
  9. We pray for faith. We ask God to help us believe, to strengthen our faith. We can ask Him to help us not to look for signs and wonders, but rather to feel the Almighty God inside, His almighty presence within us.
  10. Jesus wants the children to come to Him. He came to this earth to give us life. He loves the little children. Their hearts are so pure and so gentle! This world is teaching many lessons that are evil. We must go out into the world and lead the little children to Jesus' Heart. He is calling us to bring the little children to Him.

The Ascension

  1. Jesus gave the Apostles the power to baptize and to forgive sins. It is through Baptism that we are made children of God and heirs of heaven. We partake in His divine life.
  2. He lives in the hearts of men. Today, He operates in the hearts of men. Jesus Christ came to this earth. He walked the earth, He suffered, and He died. He rose on the third day. He ascended into heaven, but He leaves behind His apostles to carry out His mission in their lives.
  3. The Incarnation goes on this day in the Church.
  4. We are constantly being formed in the spiritual womb or heart of the Virgin Mary to be more and more like Jesus. Dear Holy Spirit, transform us in the womb of the Virgin Mary, so that we may grow more and more in this likeness of our beloved Savior.
  5. There are so many pure and tender hearts in the little children of this world. The children this day are being taught such vile things! How people hold back! They do not talk about the love of God with reverence. He wants us to speak to the children. People do not realize that the children need to know God's love. Many times parents pray themselves and do not talk to their children about God. He is sending us into the world. We must talk to the children about the love of God.
  6. We are soldiers. We are mighty soldiers. We must carry the message of God's love to the youth.
  7. See before your eyes a group of children with their hearts filled with the love of God and singing. Children's hearts are open and pure. We can turn many children's hearts to the love of God. Children have not yet turned off their hearts, not yet turned their hearts to hearts of stone. Go to the children and tell them about the love God has for them. Tell them about the Eucharist. He ascended into heaven, but He remains with us this day, in His divinity and humanity, in the Holy Eucharist. He remains in the hearts of men, who are in the state of grace, in a very, very special way. Let the little children go to Him. Do we want the world to change? We must reach the children and the priests. We are His soldiers. It is through our examples that this world will see the mighty lessons of His love.
  8. This is our mission. We were commissioned in Baptism to carry out His life, death, and resurrection in our lives. Will we follow this calling? He is Jesus, our Savior. He is asking us to go forth to this Godless world with our banners held high and with the love of God across our chests. " Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, You are my beloved Jesus." Let us shout it from the highest mountain and declare it from the rooftops. Jesus has died, He has risen, and He will come again. He is alive. He is alive. He is alive. He lives this day.
  9. We make many things so difficult! They are so simple! If we go to the scriptures, we see exactly what God is saying. If we read the Acts of the Apostles, we see how the Apostles went from town to town and many were converted. It is through our efforts to spread this love of God that many will be converted. Let our hearts be fervent and on fire for the love of God. We must reach the children. If we reach the children, we will reach the world.
  10. And He raised His arms and He ascended into heaven, but He left behind the Apostles to carry out His work.

The Descent of the Holy Spirit on the Apostles

  1. They were all gathered in an upper room, the Apostles and the Virgin Mary. See the Virgin Mary. She is seated above the Apostles (in the window). The Holy Spirit descends upon them in parted tongues of fire and their hearts are transformed from fear to fearlessness.
  2. They are filled with such vibrancy and fire that they go out into the world to preach the Gospel message, the message of the love of God.
  3. Let us meditate on the mystery of God's love. Let us put aside all of the distractions in our minds and focus only on His abundant love. He is outpouring such love to us in this room as we pray the rosary. Jesus Christ, the Son of God, remains in the tabernacle and longs to communicate with us. He wants to be so close to us! He longs to be so close to us! He is the sweetest and most tender lover. He is waiting and waiting by the door of our hearts.
  4. Jesus wants us to bring the children to Him. Children must be baptized in the Holy Spirit. Children must pray to the Holy Spirit! Children need to have the courage to stand up for God in the circles wherein they mix this day. Many children are Godless. Many other children are mocked for professing the faith, making the sign of the cross, or saying grace. The children must go to Jesus. Teach the children about praying to the Holy Spirit. It is through the Holy Spirit that they will be transformed from fear to fearlessness. As the Apostles carried out the Gospel message, so the children too will carry out the message of God's love.
  5. Many children sit idle all summer and are looking for things to do. Tell them about the Junior Shepherds of Christ Associates prayer chapters. Encourage the children to pray. They need to pray. The Junior Shepherds of Christ Associates is a movement to touch the youth of this world.
  6. We must circulate this rosary on the love of God. We must tell children about the love of God.
  7. Song: Come Holy Ghost
  8. We must remain fearless, unattached, surrendering, and yielding. He is giving to us abundant graces to carry His love into the world. His youth will march on this world with hearts filled with fire for the love of God.
  9. These are rosaries for children to use in the Junior Shepherds of Christ Associates Movement. These meditations are to be used at the Junior Shepherds of Christ Associates meetings. The children must consecrate their hearts to Jesus and Mary.
  10. Many are called, but few are chosen. The children must unite in the Junior Shepherds of Christ Associates Movement and carry this movement across the United States to children who are hurting and in pain. Many children this day are suffering far beyond our realization. Let us join as children in the Junior Shepherds of Christ Associates movement and give our hearts to Jesus and Mary.

The Assumption of Our Lady

  1. Mary is taken into heaven, body and soul. She remained on the earth after the death of Jesus and now she is taken to her final glory.
  2. Mary remains as Mother of the Church and Mother of each one of us. She is by our sides. She is with us, molding us and forming us in her womb, through the power of the Holy Spirit, to be more and more like her Son Jesus.
  3. We must reach the children now. Some children will lose their souls and be condemned to the fires of hell. It is through your efforts to spread this movement, the Junior Shepherds of Christ Associates, that we will help to save so many children.
  4. Little children's prayers are so powerful! We must man the forces and have the little army of children ready to march on this world with their pure little hearts and talk about the love of God. Children love to sing and they will love to pray when they know about the lives of Jesus and Mary. We must teach children about the Mass and the great gifts they are given.
  5. We are missing a big source of our power by not contacting the children. When children pray, there is power. Children joined in numbers are a vital force for spreading this movement across the United States and elsewhere. Our land is a land that is very sick. It is in curing the children of their illnesses that our land will prosper.
  6. Think of the little children coming to Mass and longing to receive Jesus in the Holy Eucharist. Think of them coming with their little hearts and telling Jesus of their love. Mary wants to hold the children tenderly, close to her heart. She loves each precious little young child. We must reach out to the children.
  7. Children are being taught at such an early age about sex, but they are not being taught about the love of God. You must have courage to stand up and talk about the love of God. Think of how the children are being taught this day about all the vile things. People have the courage to stand up and spread such filth, but so few speak to the children about the burning love of Jesus. Jesus loves the little children. Let the little children go to Him.
  8. Help us circulate these rosaries to children. Encourage children to pray the rosary with these meditations. Mary loves the children. She is Mother of all the children of this world. She is watching over them.
  9. Think of how a mother loves her children. Mary loves her children with the tenderest motherly love. Will we lead these tender young hearts to the Heart of Jesus, on fire for love of them? Many souls will be condemned to hell for their sinfulness and their willfulness. We must talk to the children about the love of Jesus.
  10. These rosary meditations must be circulated among the children. Jesus loves the children.

The Crowning of Mary

  1. The soul was created by God to know and love God. Nothing on the face of this earth will feed the starved soul except the love of God. Make it clear to the children that their souls were created for the love of God. Their souls are hungry. They need to feed their souls with the love of God.
  2. Mary was crowned Queen of Heaven and Earth. Someday, if we love God and love each other, we, too, will be given a place in heaven far beyond our comprehension. We cannot understand the immensity of the love of God. Jesus Christ came to this earth. He was born a little baby. He suffered and died. He rose on the third day and ascended into heaven. He wants us to be with Him forever and ever in heaven.
  3. Many of the ways of this world are very evil ways. The little children are being taught such evilness! Children need to know the love of Jesus. We must reach the children. We must know that Satan will press very hard to try to stop any efforts that we may make in trying to reach the children. Think of Mary. She is protecting us with her motherly mantle.
  4. If we instruct the children on the lives of Jesus and Mary, they will love to pray the rosary.
  5. We will reach the youth throughout this world through the Junior Shepherds of Christ Associates Movement.
  6. Children everyday need to consecrate their hearts to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary.
  7. When we are tired and weary, we must know that Satan is pressing on us. We are receiving abundant graces to carry out this work. We must pray as we have never prayed before. Pray that the Father will answer our prayers. Pray in union with the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, through the intercession of the Sorrowful Mother.
  8. There are many little innocent babies slaughtered in the womb of the mother. Many children's minds are being slaughtered in the classrooms. Speak out; pray for courage from the Holy Spirit to speak out for the love of God. If this world can talk about so many vile things, if it shows movies in the movie theaters where Satan is coming out of the screen, we can surely talk about the tender, burning Heart of Jesus.
  9. Many young hearts will be converted and, in that conversion, the power of their prayers will be magnified far beyond our comprehension. This is a rosary from July 15, 1995. This is a call to reach the children in the Junior Shepherds of Christ Associates Movement, to bring them to the Immaculate Heart, that they may consecrate their hearts to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary.
  10. Tell the children to pray to Jesus and the Holy Spirit for the courage to go into this world. They are fighting a battle everyday in this world. Mary loves the little children of the world. We must lead them to the burning love of Jesus' Heart.
