- Jesus Is Condemned to Death
Jesus: My dear child, with angry hearts and hatred on their faces, they poked at
Me and condemned Me to death. I stood so silent, My hands tied, in perfect peace, because
I knew the Father's love. I knew the Father's Will. You too will stand your trials in
perfect peace, the more you realize the immense love the Father, Son and Holy Spirit have
for you. Pray to the Spirit to transform you more and more into My image and, through this
transformation, you will be led ever closer to the Father. Oh, how I love you!
They Give Jesus the Cross
Jesus: They gave Me a heavy cross, laden with the sins of the world. They placed it
on My shoulder. It was so heavy I felt as if My shoulder would break. I ask you to carry
little crosses, to experience little pains. I could not remove this cross from My
shoulder. The weight was unbearable. It is through My suffering and death that you receive
new life. It is through your sufferings this day that you will grow in your life with Me.
Oh, child, I loved you so much that I took up the cross of salvation. I love you. Please
realize that I am talking to you here. To My death I loved you. Oh, how I love you!
- Jesus Falls the First Time
Jesus: The cross was so heavy I could hardly walk. I held on to My cross for
greatest love of you and in compliance with the Will of My Father. It became so hard to
walk! The cross was so heavy! I fell. I fell and the cross fell on Me. They poked at Me,
they struck Me, they demanded I get up. The pain from the instruments they used to poke Me
and strike Me was so great! I somehow managed to get up.
When you fall under the weight of your cross, come to My Eucharistic Heart. I am no less
present in the tabernacle and in the Eucharist than on the day I carried My cross. I wait
with the same love that I had for you when I carried this cross and suffered such agony.
Oh, how I love you!
Jesus and Mary Meet
Jesus: I saw the face of My beautiful Mother. She was weak, her face reddened and
full of tears. I saw her tender heart, her love, her anguish, her pain. I saw My dear
Mother Mary. My Heart was comforted by the sight of her, but torn by her suffering.
Mary: As I looked into the eyes of my beloved Son, I saw His love. His head,
bleeding and wounded. His body weak. His clothes covered with blood. I looked into His
eyes and I saw His love for you. I call out to you today. I appear today with a face full
of anguish and tears. I appear to call you back to the love of my Son. See through my
eyes, as I peer into His eyes, the love He has for you this day to give of Himself for
you. Oh, He loves you so much, my little children. See through my eyes the love of my Son.
Oh, how He loves you!
- Simon of Cyrene Is Forced to Help Jesus Carry His Cross
Jesus: The cross was so heavy I could not move. My persecutors became angry and
forced a man to help Me. The cross was so heavy the two of us could barely move it. How is
your cross today? Does it seem so heavy you cannot go on? I am forever watching you. When
you are suffering the greatest, I am very close to you. It is in immense suffering that
you realize My great love for you. Pray for grace to do always the Father's Will. Pray for
grace to grow in your knowledge and love of Me.
Veronica Wipes the Face of Jesus
Jesus: My face was covered with blood. From the crowd Veronica came forward with a
cloth to wipe My face. On the cloth I gave to you an imprint of My bloodied face. This, My
children, remains with you this day as a sign of My immense love for you. But more than
any cloth, look beyond the visible consecrated host. I, Jesus Christ, the Son of God,
remain with you, Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity, in the Eucharist this day, waiting and
longing to be with you. Oh, how I love you!
- Jesus Falls the Second Time
Jesus: Oh, dear ones, the road became harder and harder to walk. The cross was
becoming heavier, My body weaker and weaker. My shoulders and arms hurt so much! My head
throbbed as I walked. The blood came from My body, from My head to My feet. I was covered
with open wounds. I could not go any farther. I stumbled and fell. Again they poked at Me,
only harder, and with such hatred they kicked Me. Such vileness in the hearts of men! My
greatest agony was not the agonies of My body, but the agonies of My heart for the love I
have for all My precious souls. I loved them so dearly. I loved those who persecuted Me.
Oh, how I love you!
Jesus Meets the Women of Jerusalem
Jesus: The women came to Me with their children, their tender hearts crying and
wanting to comfort Me. I saw their love, their care. I saw the coldness of men's hearts
for all time, the hatred, the anger, the sins, all the souls that, despite all of My
sufferings and death, would be condemned to eternal damnation. I told the women to weep
not for Me, but for themselves and their children. My greatest agonies were the agonies of
My Most Sacred Heart. Oh, how I love you!
- Jesus Falls the Third Time
Jesus: I fell hard the third time. I was so weakened I could not go on. My body
collapsed under the cross from such exhaustion! My child, My child, My greatest agonies
were not the wounds to the body. They were the wounds I experienced to My heart. Do you
know a little more now how I love you? It is in meditating on My Passion and death that
you will realize My immense love for you. When you fall, when you struggle, I give you the
grace to get up. I never give you more than you can handle. Your strength will come from
Me. Come to My Eucharistic Heart. I am waiting for you this day. Oh, how I love you!
Jesus Is Stripped of His Garments
Jesus: They took Me to the hill to crucify Me. They angrily stripped Me of My
garments. They took off My clothes to whip Me. They had covered My bloody wounds with a
dirty purple robe. Now, total surrender-they took off My clothes. I showed you the way to
surrender, always complying with the Will of the Father. It is in living in His Will that
you will have peace and joy, and life eternal some day. Oh, how I love you!
- They Nail Him to the Cross
R. See Mary as she holds the little Baby Jesus. See her as she washes His tender
hands and feet. See her now as she watches as they pound into those same hands and feet
the gigantic nails that fix Jesus to the cross.
Mary: Oh, my dear ones, my heart was torn in my chest as they nailed His hands and
feet to the cross. I ask you this day to walk the Passion with me and see through my eyes
the love He has for you. He truly was nailed to the cross.
Jesus: They pounded the nails into My first hand, then they stretched My body and
nailed My other hand. The blood poured from these wounds that went totally through My
hands. My pain was so immense, but then they nailed My feet! You do not know what pain I
suffered, My child. My children, My children, for each one of you I suffered this pain.
Oh, how I loved you!
- Jesus Dies on the Cross
R. He hung for three agonizing hours on the cross against the darkened sky. His
greatest agonies were not the agonies of His body, but those of His Heart for the great
love He has for each and every soul.
Jesus: I gave Myself to you, My dear ones. I gave My all. I hung with My arms spread
in total surrender. My head was punctured; My hands and feet were nailed to the cross. I
gave Myself to you. I give Myself to you this day in the Eucharist. I give Myself to you.
I, God, give you Myself! What more do you want?
Song: Oh, burning Heart, oh, Love divine, etc.
R. They pierced His Heart with a lance and what flowed forth was blood and water, the
sacramental life of the Church, water for Baptism and blood for the Eucharist. His life,
death and resurrection live on in the Church this day.
Jesus Is Taken Down from the Cross and Placed in the
Arms of His Mother
R. His totally lifeless body was placed in the arms of His most loving Mother. As
she had held the little baby body in her arms, she now received His bloodied, bruised body
in her arms. This is how He obeyed the Father's Will. Jesus gave His life for us. The
Father gave His only Son because He loves us so much. Mary, His Mother, our Mother and the
Mother of the Church, is forever by His side. See Jesus in the arms of His loving Mother
under the cross. This is love.
Mary: I held His lifeless body in my arms. See through my eyes the love He has for you
this day. He gives Himself to you today in the Eucharist. He loves you so much!
- Jesus Is Locked in the Tomb
R. His enemies rolled the stone up to the tomb and were pleased to have
buried Jesus. Mary, outside the tomb, wept bitterly. The cold reality that He was dead!
But death has no power over Jesus for on the third day He rose, triumphant, from the tomb!
We are partakers in His divine life. Death has no power over Jesus. He is with us this
day. He comes to bring us life to the full. He loves us so much!
