                          “You must pray
                          and suffer in
                          order to say:
                          “Father, your will
                          alone be done.”

                          “I ask you to offer
                          to the Lord your
                          life of prayer and
                          suffering for the
                          salvation this poor
                          humanity.”
                          (Gobbi)
1A. With Jesus in the Desert
                         In deepest humility He
                         prostrated Himself
                         upon the ground which
                         was always the prelude
                         of his prayer and that of
                         his most blessed Mother
                         He continued his
                         prayers prostrate in the
                         form of a cross, this was
                         his most frequent
                         occupation in the
                         desert; for in this
                         manner He often prayed
                         to the eternal Father for
                         the salvation of men.
                         (Mary of Agreda)
After the Savior had
1B. With Jesus   begun his fast He
 in the Desert   persevered therein
                 without eating anything
                 for forty days, offering
                 his fast to the eternal
                 Father as a satisfaction
                 for the disorder and sins
                 to which men are drawn
                 by the so vile and
                 debasing, yet so
                 common vice of
                 gluttony. He satisfied
                 the offenses committed
                 through them by the
                 exercises of the virtues
                 contrary to them.
                 (Mary of Agreda)
1C. With Jesus   So our most loving
                 Father and Brother, Jesus
 in the Desert   Christ, wished to pay our
                 debts. In satisfaction for
                 our pride He offered his
                 profound humility; for
                 our avarice, his voluntary
                 poverty and total
                 privation. He continued
                 to appease the just Judge
                 and solicited pardon for
                 us disobedient and
                 bastard children; and He
                 not only obtained this
                 pardon for them, but He
                 merited for them new
                 graces and favors.
                 (Mary of Agreda)
1D. With Jesus in the desert
                          “You too should go with
                          Jesus into the desert. Offer
                          yourselves with Him for the
                          perfect carrying out of the
                          Father’s plan. Prepare
                          yourselves for the important
                          mission which awaits you,
                          because my time has come.
                          In the desert, you will feel
                          great hunger and thirst solely
                          for the word of God, the
                          painful cold because of sin in
                          the world, and the burning
                          heat of the Spirit of God.”
                          (Gobbi)
1E. With Jesus in the desert “In the desert, Jesus lived
                             alone and with Him. I will
                             bring you to interior
                             solitude, detaching you
                             from your own selves, from
                             creatures, from the world ,
                             so that you may listen to
                             the voice of the great
                             silence.
                             In the desert, Jesus prayed
                             to the Father without cease.
                             I am leading you to prayer
                             which must become
                             unceasing and
                             continuous.” (Gobbi)
1F. With Jesus in the desert   “Pray always, with
                               your life, with your heart,
                               with your work, with your
                               pain, with your
                               weariness, with your
                               wounds. Only in the
                               desert that your heavenly
                               Mother can train you to
                               have a taste for prayer.
                               You must pray and suffer
                               in order to say:
                               “Father, your will alone
                               be done.”
                               (Gobbi)
Temptation of Jesus
 in the Desert
Remarkable description of Jesus in the desert by
 Mary of Agreda in the Mystical City of God.
 Without delay Christ our Lord pursued his journey from the Jordan
 to the desert after his Baptism. Only his holy angels attended and
 accompanied Him, serving and worshipping Him, singing the
 divine praises on account of what He was now about to undertake
 for the salvation of mankind. He came to the place chosen by Him
 for his fast: a desert spot among bare and beetling rocks, where
 there was also a cavern much concealed. Here He halted,
 choosing it for his habitation during the days of his fast (Matth. 4,
 1). He In deepest humility He prostrated Himself upon the ground
 which was always the prelude of his prayer and that of his most
 blessed Mother. He praised the eternal Father and gave Him
 thanks for the works of his divine right hand and for having
 according to his pleasure afforded Him this retirement. In a
 suitable manner He thanked even this desert for accepting his
 presence and keeping Him hidden from the world during the time
 He was to spend there. He continued his prayers prostrate in the
 form of a cross, this was his most frequent occupation in the
 desert; for in this manner He often prayed to the eternal Father for
 the salvation of men.
   After the Savior had begun his fast He persevered therein
    without eating anything for forty days, offering his fast to
    the eternal Father as a satisfaction for the disorder and
    sins to which men are drawn by the so vile and debasing,
    yet so common and even esteemed vice of gluttony. Just
    as our Lord overcame this vice so He also vanquished all
    the rest, and He made recompense to the eternal Judge
    and supreme Legislator for the injuries perpetrated
    through these vices by men. According to the
    enlightenment vouchsafed to me, our Savior, in order to
    assume the office of Preacher and Teacher and to
    become our Mediator and Redeemer before the Father,
    thus vanquished all the vices of mortals and He satisfied
    the offenses committed through them by the exercises of
    the virtues contrary to them, just as He did in regard to
    gluttony.
   So our most loving Father and Brother, Jesus Christ,
    wished to pay our debts. In satisfaction for our pride He
    offered his profound humility; for our avarice, his
    voluntary poverty and total privation of all that was his;
    for our base and lustful inclinations, his penance and
    austerity; for our hastiness and vengeful anger, his
    meekness and charity toward his enemies; for our
    negligence and laziness, his ceaseless labors; for our
    deceitfulness and our envy, his candid and upright
    sincerity and truthfulness and the sweetness of his loving
    interactions. In this manner He continued to appease the
    just Judge and solicited pardon for us disobedient and
    bastard children; and He not only obtained this pardon
    for them, but He merited for them new graces and favors,
    so that they might make themselves worthy of his
    company and of the vision of his Father and his own
    inheritance for all eternity.
   In order to keep informed of the doings of our Savior the most
    blessed Mary needed no other assistance than her continual
    visions and revelations; but in addition to all these, She made use
    of the service of her holy angels, whom She sent to her divine Son.
    The Lord himself thus ordered it, in order that, by means of these
    faithful messengers, both He and She might rejoice in the
    sentiments and thoughts of their inmost hearts; and thus They
    each heard the very same words as uttered by Each. As soon as the
    great Lady understood that our Redeemer was on the way to the
    desert to fulfill his intention, She locked the doors of her dwelling,
    without letting any one know of her presence. She entered into her
    oratory and remained there for forty days and nights without ever
    leaving it and without eating anything, just as She knew was done
    by her most holy Son. Both of them observed the same course of
    rigorous fasting. In all his prayers and exercises, his prostrations
    and genuflections She followed our Savior, not omitting any of
    them; moreover She performed them just at the same time; for,
    leaving aside all other occupations, She thus profited by the
    information obtained from the angels and by that other
    knowledge, which I have already described. Whether He was
    present or not, She knew the interior operations of the soul of
    Christ.
   While the Savior was in the desert He made every day
    three hundred genuflections, which also was done by our
    Queen Mary in her oratory; the other portion of her time
    She spent in composing hymns with the angels, as I have
    said in the last chapter. Thus imitating Christ the Lord,
    the Holy Queen co-operated with Him in all his prayers
    and petitions, gaining the same victories over the vices,
    and on her part proportionately satisfying for them by her
    virtues and her exertions. Thus it happened, that, while
    Christ as our Redeemer gained for us so many blessings
    and abundantly paid all our debts, most holy Mary, as his
    Helper and our Mother, lent us her merciful intercession
    and became our Mediatrix to the fullest extent possible
    to a mere creature.
   In order to begin the battle as man, He directed a prayer
    to the eternal Father from his inmost soul, to which the
    intelligence of the demon could not penetrate, saying:
    "My Father and eternal God, I now enter into battle with
    the enemy in order to crush his power and humble his
    pride and his malice against my beloved souls. For thy
    glory, and for the benefit of souls I submit to the daring
    presumption of Lucifer. I wish thereby to crush his head
    in order that when mortals are attacked by his
    temptations without their fault, they may find his
    arrogance already broken. I beseech Thee, my Father, to
    remember my battle and victory in favor of mortals
    assailed by the common enemy. Strengthen their
    weakness through my triumph, let them obtain victory;
    let them be encouraged by my example, and let them
    learn from Me how to resist and overcome their enemies.
   The temptation of Christ began on the thirty-fifth day of
    his fast in the desert, and lasted to the end of the fast,
   The Lord allowed the demon to continue in his
    temptation and for this purpose permitted Himself
    carried by the devil bodily to Jerusalem and to be placed
    on the pinnacle of the temple.
   She had seen them all by the divine light already
    described and by the uninterrupted messages of her
    angels, who brought them back and forth between the
    Savior and the blessed Queen. She repeated the same
    prayers as the Lord and at the same time! She entered
    likewise into the conflict with the dragon, though
    invisibly and spiritually.. When She perceived that the
    demon carried the Lord from place to place, She wept
    bitterly, because the malice of sin reduced the King of
    kings to such misusage. In honor of all the victories,
    which He gained over the devil, She composed hymns of
    praise to the Divinity.

Ministry of Mercy
and Forgiveness
5. Ministry of Mercy and Forgiveness:
Christ came to us not as a just judge but a saviour,
offering us forgiveness & chance to start over again.
                                       When we
                                       confess our
                                       sins in the
                                       sacrament of
                                       reconciliation,
                                       we also
                                       encounter
                                       Jesus who
                                       offers us
                                       forgiveness,

Paolo Veronese, Christ addressing a kneeling woman. 1528. London Gallery.
How Jesus treated his disciples by Mary of Agreda, Mystical city of God.
 In the Apostles thus called He enkindled, from the moment of
  their joining the Master, a new light and fire of divine love and
  showered upon them the sweetness of his blessings (Ps. 20, 4). It is
  not possible worthily to describe the labors undergone by the
  divine Teacher in the vocation and education of these and of the
  other disciples, in order to found upon them the Church. He
  sought them out with great diligence and solicitude; He bore with
  them with invincible patience; He caressed them as a most loving
  Father caresses his tender and darling sons. The work of
  transforming and raising them from their rough natural state into
  such a heavenly and divine position by his instructions and
  example, necessarily was a vast enterprise. In the performance of
  this work the Lord has left a most exalted example of patience, and
  charity for all the prelates, princes and whoever is charged with the
  guidance of subjects. Not less significant for us sinners are the
  proofs of his fatherly kindness: for He was not satisfied with
  simply bearing with their faults and defects, their natural
  inclinations and passions but He allowed his tender kindness to
  overflow thus wonderfully toward them .

   The Savior then pursued his way to Nazareth
    instructing his new children and disciples not
    only the mysteries of faith, but in all virtues by
    word and example, as He continued to do during
    the whole period of his evangelical preaching.
    With this in view He searched out the poor and
    afflicted, consoled the sick and sorrowful, visited
    the infirmaries and prisons, performing miracles
    of mercy as well for body as for soul.

    devotion, entering at once into her office as
    Instructress and spiritual Mother of the disciples
    of Christ by showing then how to converse with
    their God and Redeemer. (Mary of Agreda)

“These are the times of your
witness. Give to all the
witness of being consecrated
to me. Your life must be
illumined by my motherly
presence. You must spread
about you the charisma of
my holiness, mercy and
tenderness.
Whoever sees you must see
the power of my light; the
sweet balm of my mercy.
Give my help to those who
are far away, the poor, the
sick, the sinners, the
desperate”. (Gobbi)
“Come with me, your
Shepherdess, in the
search of the many little
sheep who have lost their
way and are running the
danger of dying of hunger

“You are to go again into

to announce with power my
message to all.”
(Gobbi)
“You must be truly Jesus today,
for the men of you time.
Jesus who speaks, and thus you
will speak only the truth
contained in the Gospel
Jesus who acts; you must above
all relive Jesus in your life and
be a living Gospel.
For this I will make you ever
purer, poorer, smaller and more
humble. I am his Mother and
yours, and I know how to help
you to grow like other little Jesus
for the salvation of all my
children.
(Gobbi)
“With the heart of Jesus, have
love for all your brothers and my
children. How many of them are
walking the roads of this world
like sheep without a shepherd,
exposed to every kind of danger!
How many have been wounded
by sin, made into slaves of evil,
victims of hate! How many there
are who are poor, who are
exploited, weak, suffering. Their
desperate cry for help reaches up
to me, and deeply wounding my
mother’s heart. (Gobbi)
“I am with you on all the
by-ways of the world. I save
the perishing, restore health
to the sick, console the
afflicted, encourage the
down-hearted, raise up
those who have fallen, find
those who have lost they
way.
It is the hour of Divine
Mercy. I wish to act through
you.” (Gobbi)

are lost. Bring all to me. I want to save all my children, through you”

   WORDS OF THE QUEEN on PURITY & LOVE OF ST. JOHN
    (The Virgin Mary speaks to Sister Mary of Agreda, Spain.)
   “My daughter, I see thee much moved to emulation and desire by
    the great happiness of the disciples of my most holy Son, and
    especially that of saint John, my favored servant. It is certain that I
    loved him in a special manner; because he was most pure and
    candid as a dove; and in the eyes of the Lord he was very pleasing,
    both on account of his purity and on account of his love toward me.
    His example should serve thee as a spur to do that which my Son
    and I expect of thee. Thou art aware, my dearest, that I am the most
    pure Mother and that I receive with maternal affection those who
    fervently and devoutly desire to be my children and servants in the
    Lord. By the love which He has given me, I shall embrace them with
    open arms and shall be their Intercessor and Advocate. Thy poverty,
    uselessness and weakness shall be for me only a more urgent motive
    for manifesting toward thee my most liberal kindness. Therefore, I
    call upon thee to become my chosen and beloved daughter in the
    holy Church.”
   “I shall, however, make the fulfillment of my promise depend upon
    a service on thy part: namely, that thou have a true and holy
    emulation of the love with which I loved saint John, and of all the
    blessings flowing from it, by imitating him as perfectly as thy powers
    will allow. Hence, thou must promise to fulfill all that I now
    command thee, without failing in the least point. I desire, then, that
    thou labor until all love of self die within thee, that thou suppress all
    the effects of the first sin until all the earthly inclinations
    consequent upon it are totally extinguished; that thou seek to restore
    within thee that dove-like sincerity and simplicity which destroys all
    malice and duplicity. In all thy doings thou must be an angel, since
    the condescension of the Most High with thee was so great as to
    furnish thee with the light and intelligence more of an angel than
    that of a human creature. I have procured for thee these great
    blessings and, therefore, it is but reasonable on my part to expect
    thee to correspond with them in thy works and in thy thoughts. In
    regard to me thou must cherish a continual affection and loving
    desire of pleasing and serving me, being always attentive to my
    counsels and having thy eyes fixed upon me in order to know and
    execute what I command. Then shalt thou be my true daughter, and
    I shall be thy Protectress and loving Mother.”
   WORDS OF THE QUEEN. (The Virgin Mary speaks to Sister
    Mary of Agreda, Spain.)
   “My daughter, all that thou hast written in this chapter is a most
    important warning for all those that live in the flesh and in the
    imminent danger of losing eternal happiness. It should teach them
    to seek my most kind and powerful intercession and to fear the
    judgments of the Most High; for in this lies an efficacious means of
    salvation and of meriting higher reward for the Lord. I wish to
    remind thee once more, that among the secrets revealed to the
    beloved John at the last Supper, was also this, that he had become
    the beloved disciple of Christ on account of his love toward me, and
    that Judas fell because he despised the mercy and kindness which I
    had shown him. At that time, also, the evangelist understood other
    great mysteries communicated and wrought in me; that I should
    take part in the labor and suffering of the Passion and that he
    should have special charge of me. My dearest, the purity which I
    require of thee must be greater than that of an angel; and if thou
    strive after it thou wilt become my dearest child, as saint John , and
    a most beloved and favored spouse of my Son and Lord. His
    example and the ruin of Judas should continually serve thee as a
    stimulus and as a warning, to seek only after my love and to be
    sincerely thankful for the love shown thee without thy merit.”
The ( National ) Rosary          For the Evangelization of
    (Nations)
1. Fatima Prayer: To Eucharistic Jesus, source of all
    evangelization.
   “O my Jesus, forgive us our sins, save us from the fires of
    hell, lead all souls to heaven, especially those who are in
    most need of thy mercy.”

2. Invocation of the Holy Spirit: Principal agent of
    evangelization.
   “Come, Holy Spirit! Fill the hearts of the (National) people
    and enkindle in them the fire of your love! Come by means
    of the powerful intercession of the Immaculate Heart of
    Mary, your well-beloved Spouse.”

3. Prayer to Our Lady of ( Nation ): Star of the new
   evangelization.
   “Hail Holy Queen, Mother of (Nation), come and present the
   (National) people to Jesus, the fruit of thy womb.
    Look upon them continually with mercy and through your

Luminous Mysteries 3: Proclamation

  • 1. Meditations on the Proclamation of the Kingdom of God  Recommendation: Please read the contents of one of the 20 mysteries meditations before you start your prayer. Some of these presentations (e.g. The Fifth Sorrowful Mystery: The Crucifixion) contains over 60 slides. With so much spiritual food that it is best to read and contemplate on a few of the slides each time.  We welcome biblical scholars, theologians, lecturers and professors of theological institutions and seminaries and lay people around the world to contribute precious pictures and words to accompany specific scenes in the Rosary in Visual Art. You can contribute through the BLOG on our website.
  • 2. Third Luminous Mystery The Proclamation of the Kingdom After John had been arrested, Jesus came to Galilee proclaiming the gospel of God: “This is the time of fulfillment. The Kingdom of God is at hand. Repent, and believe in the gospel.” Spiritual fruit: Desire for Holiness, Grace of Conversion. Pope John Paul II suggest that we focus on Christ’s call to conversion and his forgiveness.
  • 3. With Jesus in the desert Life of Prayer Exercises of virtue contrary to vices
  • 4. 1. With Jesus in the Desert “You must pray and suffer in order to say: “Father, your will alone be done.” “I ask you to offer to the Lord your life of prayer and suffering for the salvation this poor humanity.” (Gobbi)
  • 5. 1A. With Jesus in the Desert In deepest humility He prostrated Himself upon the ground which was always the prelude of his prayer and that of his most blessed Mother He continued his prayers prostrate in the form of a cross, this was his most frequent occupation in the desert; for in this manner He often prayed to the eternal Father for the salvation of men. (Mary of Agreda)
  • 6. After the Savior had 1B. With Jesus begun his fast He in the Desert persevered therein without eating anything for forty days, offering his fast to the eternal Father as a satisfaction for the disorder and sins to which men are drawn by the so vile and debasing, yet so common vice of gluttony. He satisfied the offenses committed through them by the exercises of the virtues contrary to them. (Mary of Agreda)
  • 7. 1C. With Jesus So our most loving Father and Brother, Jesus in the Desert Christ, wished to pay our debts. In satisfaction for our pride He offered his profound humility; for our avarice, his voluntary poverty and total privation. He continued to appease the just Judge and solicited pardon for us disobedient and bastard children; and He not only obtained this pardon for them, but He merited for them new graces and favors. (Mary of Agreda)
  • 8. 1D. With Jesus in the desert “You too should go with Jesus into the desert. Offer yourselves with Him for the perfect carrying out of the Father’s plan. Prepare yourselves for the important mission which awaits you, because my time has come. In the desert, you will feel great hunger and thirst solely for the word of God, the painful cold because of sin in the world, and the burning heat of the Spirit of God.” (Gobbi)
  • 9. 1E. With Jesus in the desert “In the desert, Jesus lived alone and with Him. I will bring you to interior solitude, detaching you from your own selves, from creatures, from the world , so that you may listen to the voice of the great silence. In the desert, Jesus prayed to the Father without cease. I am leading you to prayer which must become unceasing and continuous.” (Gobbi)
  • 10. 1F. With Jesus in the desert “Pray always, with your life, with your heart, with your work, with your pain, with your weariness, with your wounds. Only in the desert that your heavenly Mother can train you to have a taste for prayer. You must pray and suffer in order to say: “Father, your will alone be done.” (Gobbi)
  • 11. Temptation of Jesus in the Desert
  • 12. Remarkable description of Jesus in the desert by Mary of Agreda in the Mystical City of God. Without delay Christ our Lord pursued his journey from the Jordan to the desert after his Baptism. Only his holy angels attended and accompanied Him, serving and worshipping Him, singing the divine praises on account of what He was now about to undertake for the salvation of mankind. He came to the place chosen by Him for his fast: a desert spot among bare and beetling rocks, where there was also a cavern much concealed. Here He halted, choosing it for his habitation during the days of his fast (Matth. 4, 1). He In deepest humility He prostrated Himself upon the ground which was always the prelude of his prayer and that of his most blessed Mother. He praised the eternal Father and gave Him thanks for the works of his divine right hand and for having according to his pleasure afforded Him this retirement. In a suitable manner He thanked even this desert for accepting his presence and keeping Him hidden from the world during the time He was to spend there. He continued his prayers prostrate in the form of a cross, this was his most frequent occupation in the desert; for in this manner He often prayed to the eternal Father for the salvation of men.
  • 13. After the Savior had begun his fast He persevered therein without eating anything for forty days, offering his fast to the eternal Father as a satisfaction for the disorder and sins to which men are drawn by the so vile and debasing, yet so common and even esteemed vice of gluttony. Just as our Lord overcame this vice so He also vanquished all the rest, and He made recompense to the eternal Judge and supreme Legislator for the injuries perpetrated through these vices by men. According to the enlightenment vouchsafed to me, our Savior, in order to assume the office of Preacher and Teacher and to become our Mediator and Redeemer before the Father, thus vanquished all the vices of mortals and He satisfied the offenses committed through them by the exercises of the virtues contrary to them, just as He did in regard to gluttony.
  • 14. So our most loving Father and Brother, Jesus Christ, wished to pay our debts. In satisfaction for our pride He offered his profound humility; for our avarice, his voluntary poverty and total privation of all that was his; for our base and lustful inclinations, his penance and austerity; for our hastiness and vengeful anger, his meekness and charity toward his enemies; for our negligence and laziness, his ceaseless labors; for our deceitfulness and our envy, his candid and upright sincerity and truthfulness and the sweetness of his loving interactions. In this manner He continued to appease the just Judge and solicited pardon for us disobedient and bastard children; and He not only obtained this pardon for them, but He merited for them new graces and favors, so that they might make themselves worthy of his company and of the vision of his Father and his own inheritance for all eternity.
  • 15. In order to keep informed of the doings of our Savior the most blessed Mary needed no other assistance than her continual visions and revelations; but in addition to all these, She made use of the service of her holy angels, whom She sent to her divine Son. The Lord himself thus ordered it, in order that, by means of these faithful messengers, both He and She might rejoice in the sentiments and thoughts of their inmost hearts; and thus They each heard the very same words as uttered by Each. As soon as the great Lady understood that our Redeemer was on the way to the desert to fulfill his intention, She locked the doors of her dwelling, without letting any one know of her presence. She entered into her oratory and remained there for forty days and nights without ever leaving it and without eating anything, just as She knew was done by her most holy Son. Both of them observed the same course of rigorous fasting. In all his prayers and exercises, his prostrations and genuflections She followed our Savior, not omitting any of them; moreover She performed them just at the same time; for, leaving aside all other occupations, She thus profited by the information obtained from the angels and by that other knowledge, which I have already described. Whether He was present or not, She knew the interior operations of the soul of Christ.
  • 16. While the Savior was in the desert He made every day three hundred genuflections, which also was done by our Queen Mary in her oratory; the other portion of her time She spent in composing hymns with the angels, as I have said in the last chapter. Thus imitating Christ the Lord, the Holy Queen co-operated with Him in all his prayers and petitions, gaining the same victories over the vices, and on her part proportionately satisfying for them by her virtues and her exertions. Thus it happened, that, while Christ as our Redeemer gained for us so many blessings and abundantly paid all our debts, most holy Mary, as his Helper and our Mother, lent us her merciful intercession and became our Mediatrix to the fullest extent possible to a mere creature.
  • 17. In order to begin the battle as man, He directed a prayer to the eternal Father from his inmost soul, to which the intelligence of the demon could not penetrate, saying: "My Father and eternal God, I now enter into battle with the enemy in order to crush his power and humble his pride and his malice against my beloved souls. For thy glory, and for the benefit of souls I submit to the daring presumption of Lucifer. I wish thereby to crush his head in order that when mortals are attacked by his temptations without their fault, they may find his arrogance already broken. I beseech Thee, my Father, to remember my battle and victory in favor of mortals assailed by the common enemy. Strengthen their weakness through my triumph, let them obtain victory; let them be encouraged by my example, and let them learn from Me how to resist and overcome their enemies.
  • 18. The temptation of Christ began on the thirty-fifth day of his fast in the desert, and lasted to the end of the fast,  The Lord allowed the demon to continue in his temptation and for this purpose permitted Himself carried by the devil bodily to Jerusalem and to be placed on the pinnacle of the temple.  She had seen them all by the divine light already described and by the uninterrupted messages of her angels, who brought them back and forth between the Savior and the blessed Queen. She repeated the same prayers as the Lord and at the same time! She entered likewise into the conflict with the dragon, though invisibly and spiritually.. When She perceived that the demon carried the Lord from place to place, She wept bitterly, because the malice of sin reduced the King of kings to such misusage. In honor of all the victories, which He gained over the devil, She composed hymns of praise to the Divinity.

Thus you can take by the hand many of my poor children and cross together the bright thresholds of hope, with the triumph of my Immaculate Heart, the white snowflakes of Divine Mercy.”

  • 29. How Jesus treated his disciples by Mary of Agreda, Mystical city of God.  In the Apostles thus called He enkindled, from the moment of their joining the Master, a new light and fire of divine love and showered upon them the sweetness of his blessings (Ps. 20, 4). It is not possible worthily to describe the labors undergone by the divine Teacher in the vocation and education of these and of the other disciples, in order to found upon them the Church. He sought them out with great diligence and solicitude; He bore with them with invincible patience; He caressed them as a most loving Father caresses his tender and darling sons. The work of transforming and raising them from their rough natural state into such a heavenly and divine position by his instructions and example, necessarily was a vast enterprise. In the performance of this work the Lord has left a most exalted example of patience, and charity for all the prelates, princes and whoever is charged with the guidance of subjects. Not less significant for us sinners are the proofs of his fatherly kindness: for He was not satisfied with simply bearing with their faults and defects, their natural inclinations and passions but He allowed his tender kindness to overflow thus wonderfully toward them .

  • 54. WORDS OF THE QUEEN on PURITY & LOVE OF ST. JOHN (The Virgin Mary speaks to Sister Mary of Agreda, Spain.)  “My daughter, I see thee much moved to emulation and desire by the great happiness of the disciples of my most holy Son, and especially that of saint John, my favored servant. It is certain that I loved him in a special manner; because he was most pure and candid as a dove; and in the eyes of the Lord he was very pleasing, both on account of his purity and on account of his love toward me. His example should serve thee as a spur to do that which my Son and I expect of thee. Thou art aware, my dearest, that I am the most pure Mother and that I receive with maternal affection those who fervently and devoutly desire to be my children and servants in the Lord. By the love which He has given me, I shall embrace them with open arms and shall be their Intercessor and Advocate. Thy poverty, uselessness and weakness shall be for me only a more urgent motive for manifesting toward thee my most liberal kindness. Therefore, I call upon thee to become my chosen and beloved daughter in the holy Church.”
  • 55. “I shall, however, make the fulfillment of my promise depend upon a service on thy part: namely, that thou have a true and holy emulation of the love with which I loved saint John, and of all the blessings flowing from it, by imitating him as perfectly as thy powers will allow. Hence, thou must promise to fulfill all that I now command thee, without failing in the least point. I desire, then, that thou labor until all love of self die within thee, that thou suppress all the effects of the first sin until all the earthly inclinations consequent upon it are totally extinguished; that thou seek to restore within thee that dove-like sincerity and simplicity which destroys all malice and duplicity. In all thy doings thou must be an angel, since the condescension of the Most High with thee was so great as to furnish thee with the light and intelligence more of an angel than that of a human creature. I have procured for thee these great blessings and, therefore, it is but reasonable on my part to expect thee to correspond with them in thy works and in thy thoughts. In regard to me thou must cherish a continual affection and loving desire of pleasing and serving me, being always attentive to my counsels and having thy eyes fixed upon me in order to know and execute what I command. Then shalt thou be my true daughter, and I shall be thy Protectress and loving Mother.”
  • 56. WORDS OF THE QUEEN. (The Virgin Mary speaks to Sister Mary of Agreda, Spain.)  “My daughter, all that thou hast written in this chapter is a most important warning for all those that live in the flesh and in the imminent danger of losing eternal happiness. It should teach them to seek my most kind and powerful intercession and to fear the judgments of the Most High; for in this lies an efficacious means of salvation and of meriting higher reward for the Lord. I wish to remind thee once more, that among the secrets revealed to the beloved John at the last Supper, was also this, that he had become the beloved disciple of Christ on account of his love toward me, and that Judas fell because he despised the mercy and kindness which I had shown him. At that time, also, the evangelist understood other great mysteries communicated and wrought in me; that I should take part in the labor and suffering of the Passion and that he should have special charge of me. My dearest, the purity which I require of thee must be greater than that of an angel; and if thou strive after it thou wilt become my dearest child, as saint John , and a most beloved and favored spouse of my Son and Lord. His example and the ruin of Judas should continually serve thee as a stimulus and as a warning, to seek only after my love and to be sincerely thankful for the love shown thee without thy merit.”
