Revelations of the Queen to:

 Venerable Mary of Agreda
1.Jesus is condemned to death.
                                        “My adorable Jesus, it
                                        was not Pilate, it was
                                        my sins that
                                        condemned you to
                                        die.”
                                        (St. Alphonsus Liguori )

                                        Lord Jesus, often I
                                        judge others and fail to
                                        be understanding.
                                        Help me to see the
                                        people in my life
                                        through your eyes.

2 The way of the Cross “Like a gentle lamb who
                           is led to the slaughter,
                           without a word of
                           bitterness.”
                           “The way of the cross
                           is the only way that I
                           have traced out for
                           you. The time has
                           come when you are
                           being called to climb
                           Calvary with Him.
                           This is your most
                           beautiful hour.”
                           (Gobbi)
2 The way of the Cross “My daughter,
                        embrace the Cross
                        and do not admit any
                        consolation outside of
                        it in this mortal life.
                        By meditating day
                        and night on the
                        Passion and Death of
                        Jesus crucified, thou
                        wilt attain the summit
                        of perfection.
                        This is the great
                        science of the saints.
                        (Mary of agreda)
3.* Jesus carries the cross
                      “If anyone wishes to
                      come after Me, let him
                      deny himself, and take
                      up his cross daily and
                      follow Me.”
                      To do so means to
                      live continually in
                      the spirit of
                      mortification and
                      sacrifice.

3A.Jesus carries the cross “Following him on the
                                     way to Calvary, we
                                     learn the meaning of
                                     salvific suffering.”
                                     (Pope John Paul II)
                                     When we accept our own pains,
                                     sufferings, sorrows and
                                     burdens
                                     with love from His hand, and
                                     unite with His Sufferings, they
                                     become a source of great merit
                                     and inestimable value for us,
                                     and for the salvation of souls.
                                        Help me to embrace
                                        the crosses in my
                                        life----hardships, pain,

                                                 not the weight

                                                       going to the place
                                                       of His Passion,
                                                       some men struck
                                                       Him on the back
                                                       and others hit Him
                                                       in the face. He was
                                                       struck so violently
                                                       and so brutally that

                                                       blows.” (Our Lady to

   The executioners, bare of all human compassion and
    kindness, dragged our Savior Jesus along with incredible
    cruelty and insults. Some of them jerked Him forward by
                               H
    the ropes in order to accelerate his passage, while others
    pulled from behind in order to retard it. On account of this
    jerking and the weight of the Cross they caused Him to
    sway to and fro and often to fall to the ground. By the hard
    knocks He thus received on the rough stones great
    wounds were opened, especially on the two knees and
    they were widened at each repeated fall. The heavy Cross
    also inflicted a wound on the shoulder on which it was
    carried. The unsteadiness caused the Cross sometimes to
    knock against his sacred head, and sometimes the head
    against the Cross; thus the thorns of his crown penetrated
    deeper and wounded the parts, which they had not yet
    reached. To these torments of the body the ministers of
    evil added many insulting words and execrable affronts,
    ejecting their impure spittle and throwing the dirt of the
    pavement into his face so mercilessly, that they blinded
    the eyes that looked upon them with such divine mercy.

                                  My most loving Jesus, by
                                  the pain You suffered in
                                  this meeting, grant me the
                                  grace of being truly
                                  devoted to your most Holy
                                  Mother.
                                  And you, my Queen, who
                                  was over-whelmed with
                                  sorrow, obtain for me
                                  a tender and lasting
                                  remembrance of the
                                  passion of your divine son
                                  (St. Alphonsus Liguori)
Simone Martini, The road to Calvary, ca. 1336. Louvre Museum. Paris.
   From the house of Pilate the sorrowful and stricken Mother
    followed with the multitudes on the way of her divine Son,
    accompanied by saint John and the pious women. As the surging
    crowds hindered Her from getting very near to the Lord, She asked
    the eternal Father to be permitted to stand at the foot of the Cross
    of her blessed Son and see Him die with her own eyes. With the
    divine consent She ordered her angels to manage things in such a
    way as to make it possible for her to execute her wishes. The holy
    angels obeyed Her with great reverence; and they speedily led the
    Queen through some bystreet, in order that She might meet her
    Son. Thus it came that both of Them met face to face in sweetest
    recognition of each Other and in mutual renewal of each other's
    interior sorrows. Yet They did not speak to one another, nor would
    the fierce cruelty of the executioners have permitted such
    interaction. But the most prudent Mother interiorly besought Him,
    that, since She could not relieve him of the weight of the Cross
    since She was not permitted to command her holy angels to
    lighten it, He would inspire these ministers of cruelty to procure
    some one for his assistance. This prayer was heard by the Lord
    Christ ; and so it happened, that Simon of Cyrene was afterwards
    impressed to carry the Cross with the Lord (Matth. 27, 32).
    (Mary of Agreda. The Mystical City of God)
6.** Simon carries the cross: Simon represents all of
us. As members of the Mystical Body of Christ, we should all
help Jesus to carry the Cross. This is a sure sign that we
belong to Christ.

                                          several times to
                                          show us that
                                          we can have
                                          the misfortune
                                          of falling but we
                                          must get up
                                          quickly, take up
                                          our cross and
                                          continue
                                          courageously
                                          to follow Jesus.

Giovanni Battista Tiepolo, The way of the cross.
   “He chose not a life of softness and ease for the
    flesh, but one full of labors and pains; for He
    judged his instructions to be incomplete and
    insufficient to redeem man, if He failed to teach
    them how to overcome the demon, the flesh and
    their own self. He wished to inculcate, that this
    magnificent victory is gained by the Cross, by
    labors, penances, mortifications and the
    acceptance of contempt.” (Mary of Agreda)
9. Jesus spoke to the women of Jerusalem.

                       “My Jesus, I weep for
                       the sins which I have
                       committed against you
                       because of the
                       punishment I deserve
                       for them; and because
                       of the displeasure they
                       have caused You. It is
                       your love, more than the
                       fear of hell which makes
                       me weep for my sins.”
                       -----St. Alphonsus Liguori
10. Jesus fell the third time.
                       At those times, Jesus,
                       when we feel most
                       defeated and want to
                       give up, strengthen us
                       with Your persevering
                       spirit.

                       Your failing strength
                       makes me see how
                       helpless I am. Without
                       You, I can do nothing.
                       Help me to rely on your
                       strength, to see how
                       much I need You.
   WORDS OF THE QUEEN on the True Disciples of Christ (The
    Virgin Mary speaks to Sister Mary of Agreda, Spain.)
   “I desire that the fruit of the obedience with which thou writest the
    history of my life shall be, that thou become a true disciple of my
    most holy Son and of myself. The main purpose of the exalted and
    venerable mysteries, which are made known to thee, and of the
    teachings, which I so often repeat to thee, is that thou deny and strip
    thyself, estranging thy heart from all affection to creatures, neither
    wishing to possess them nor accept them for other uses. By this
    precaution thou wilt overcome the impediments, which the devils
    seek to place in the way of the dangerous softness of thy nature. By
    the divine teaching thou knowest the one true way of life, which is
    the Cross; and thou knowest that not all who are called, are chosen.
    Many there are who wish to follow Christ and very few who truly
    dispose themselves to imitate Him; for as soon as they feel the
    sufferings of the Cross they cast it aside. On this account there are
    so many among mortals, who, forgetful of the eternal truths, seek
    the flesh; and the continual indulgence of its pleasures. They
    ardently seek honors and fly from injuries: they strive after riches,
    and condemn poverty; they long after pleasure and dread
    mortification. All these are enemies of the Cross of Christ (Phil. 3,
    18), and with dreadful aversion they fly from it, deeming it sheer
    ignominy, just like those who crucified Christ, the Lord.”
   “Another deceit has spread through the world: many imagine that
    they are following Christ their Master, though they neither suffer
    affliction nor engage in any exertion or labor. They are content with
    avoiding boldness in committing sins, and place all their perfection
    in a certain prudence or hollow self-love, which prevents them from
    denying anything to their will and from practicing any virtues at the
    cost of their flesh. They would easily escape this deception, if they
    would consider that my Son was not only the Redeemer, but their
    Teacher; and that He left in this world the treasures of his
    Redemption not only as a remedy against its eternal ruin, but as a
    necessary medicine for the sickness of sin in human nature. No one
    knew so much as my Son and Lord; no one could better understand
    the quality of love than the divine Lord, who was and is wisdom and
    charity itself; and no one was more able to fulfill all his wishes (I
    John 4, 16). Nevertheless, although He well could do it, He chose
    not a life of softness and ease for the flesh, but one full of labors
    and pains; for He judged his instructions to be incomplete and
    insufficient to redeem man, if He failed teach them how to
    overcome the demon, the flesh and their own self. He wished to
    inculcate, that this magnificent victory is gained by the Cross, by
    labors, penances, mortifications and the acceptance of contempt: all
    of which are the trademarks and evidences of true love and the
    special watchwords of the predestined.”
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

Sorrowful Mysteries 4: Way of Cross

  • 1. Meditation on the Way of the Cross  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. Fourth Sorrowful Mystery The way of the Cross Carrying the cross by himself, he went out to what is called the Place of the Skull, Golgotha. Fruit of the Mystery: Patience in carrying our cross.
  • 3. The Way of the Cross Revelations of the Queen to:  St. Bridget of Sweden  Venerable Mary of Agreda
  • 4. 1.Jesus is condemned to death. “My adorable Jesus, it was not Pilate, it was my sins that condemned you to die.” (St. Alphonsus Liguori ) Lord Jesus, often I judge others and fail to be understanding. Help me to see the people in my life through your eyes. Jacopo Tintoretto, Christ before Pilate. 1566-67. Grande Rocco. Venice
  • 5. 2 The way of the Cross “Like a gentle lamb who is led to the slaughter, without a word of bitterness.” “The way of the cross is the only way that I have traced out for you. The time has come when you are being called to climb Calvary with Him. This is your most beautiful hour.” (Gobbi)
  • 6. 2 The way of the Cross “My daughter, embrace the Cross and do not admit any consolation outside of it in this mortal life. By meditating day and night on the Passion and Death of Jesus crucified, thou wilt attain the summit of perfection. This is the great science of the saints. (Mary of agreda)
  • 7. 3.* Jesus carries the cross “If anyone wishes to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily and follow Me.” To do so means to live continually in the spirit of mortification and sacrifice. Marco Palmezanno, Christ bearing the Cross. Vatican Museums.
  • 8. 3A.Jesus carries the cross “Following him on the way to Calvary, we learn the meaning of salvific suffering.” (Pope John Paul II) When we accept our own pains, sufferings, sorrows and burdens with love from His hand, and unite with His Sufferings, they become a source of great merit and inestimable value for us, and for the salvation of souls. Help me to embrace the crosses in my life----hardships, pain, struggles, and Marco Palmezanno, disappointments. Christ bearing the Cross. Vatican Museums.
  • 9. 4.* Jesus fell the first time. “My beloved Jesus, it was not the weight of the cross, but the weight of my sins that made you suffer so much. By the merits of this fall save me from falling into mortal sin.” --St. Alphonsus Domenichino, The Way to Calvary, 1610. Paul Getty Museum. Los Angeles
  • 10. 4.* Jesus fell the first time. “As my Son was going to the place of His Passion, some men struck Him on the back and others hit Him in the face. He was struck so violently and so brutally that although I did not see the person striking Him I distinctly heard the sound of the blows.” (Our Lady to St. Bridget of Sweden.) Domenichino, The Way to Calvary, 1610., Paul Getty Museum. Los Angeles.
  • 11. The executioners, bare of all human compassion and kindness, dragged our Savior Jesus along with incredible cruelty and insults. Some of them jerked Him forward by H the ropes in order to accelerate his passage, while others pulled from behind in order to retard it. On account of this jerking and the weight of the Cross they caused Him to sway to and fro and often to fall to the ground. By the hard knocks He thus received on the rough stones great wounds were opened, especially on the two knees and they were widened at each repeated fall. The heavy Cross also inflicted a wound on the shoulder on which it was carried. The unsteadiness caused the Cross sometimes to knock against his sacred head, and sometimes the head against the Cross; thus the thorns of his crown penetrated deeper and wounded the parts, which they had not yet reached. To these torments of the body the ministers of evil added many insulting words and execrable affronts, ejecting their impure spittle and throwing the dirt of the pavement into his face so mercilessly, that they blinded the eyes that looked upon them with such divine mercy. ---Mary of Agreda, Mystical city of God.
  • 12. 2. Jesus met his Mother, Simon, & Veronica
  • 13. A soldier threatens Mary with a 5.* Jesus met his mother club to keep her apart from Jesus. My most loving Jesus, by the pain You suffered in this meeting, grant me the grace of being truly devoted to your most Holy Mother. And you, my Queen, who was over-whelmed with sorrow, obtain for me a tender and lasting remembrance of the passion of your divine son (St. Alphonsus Liguori) Simone Martini, The road to Calvary, ca. 1336. Louvre Museum. Paris.
  • 14. From the house of Pilate the sorrowful and stricken Mother followed with the multitudes on the way of her divine Son, accompanied by saint John and the pious women. As the surging crowds hindered Her from getting very near to the Lord, She asked the eternal Father to be permitted to stand at the foot of the Cross of her blessed Son and see Him die with her own eyes. With the divine consent She ordered her angels to manage things in such a way as to make it possible for her to execute her wishes. The holy angels obeyed Her with great reverence; and they speedily led the Queen through some bystreet, in order that She might meet her Son. Thus it came that both of Them met face to face in sweetest recognition of each Other and in mutual renewal of each other's interior sorrows. Yet They did not speak to one another, nor would the fierce cruelty of the executioners have permitted such interaction. But the most prudent Mother interiorly besought Him, that, since She could not relieve him of the weight of the Cross since She was not permitted to command her holy angels to lighten it, He would inspire these ministers of cruelty to procure some one for his assistance. This prayer was heard by the Lord Christ ; and so it happened, that Simon of Cyrene was afterwards impressed to carry the Cross with the Lord (Matth. 27, 32). (Mary of Agreda. The Mystical City of God)
  • 15. 6.** Simon carries the cross: Simon represents all of us. As members of the Mystical Body of Christ, we should all help Jesus to carry the Cross. This is a sure sign that we belong to Christ. We can alleviate Your pain, O Lord, by sharing the burdens of our afflicted brothers and sisters. Juan de Flaudes. The Road to Calvary. 1510 Palencia Cathedral
  • 16. 6A. Simon carries the Cross "Oh, all you who pass by, pause a while, and see if there has ever been any sorrow like to the sorrow I have endured for love of you. Be mindful of my poverty and humiliations; think of the gall and wormwood I took for Juan de Flaudes. The Road to Calvary you in my bitter 1510 Palencia Cathedral passion." (Mary of Agreda)
  • 17. 6B. Simon carries the Cross “Ask the Father for the gift of being true disciples of Jesus, that you will always say yes to Jesus, even though it may mean sorrow and suffering. Pray for the grace to take all, out of love for Him.” (Gobbi) Passion of Christ. Movie
  • 18. 7.* Veronica wiped the face of Jesus Veronica rises above her fear of public opinion and steps forward to administer to Jesus. She rejects the standards of this world which see only the rich and famous as being worthy of attention. Help us to see God’s face in those the world rejects. Jacopo Bassano, The Way to Calvary. 1545. National Gallery. London
  • 19. The Shroud of Christ The image of Jesus remained on the fabric that she used to wipe his face. The Shroud of Turin Master of St. Veronica, St. Veronica with the Shroud of Christ, 1420. Munich
  • 20. 3. Jesus fell three times Words of the Queen on: The true disciples of Christ
  • 21. 8. Jesus fell the second time Failure and disappointments sometimes lead me to despair. I hide behind my pride and self-pity, withdrawing from you and others. Help me never . to be afraid to begin again. You know how often I fall trying to follow You. Yet you are always there to lift me up. James Tissot 1836-1902. Jesus fall beneath the Cross. Brooklyn Museum .
  • 22. 8A.** Jesus fell the second time . Our Lord fell several times to show us that we can have the misfortune of falling but we must get up quickly, take up our cross and continue courageously to follow Jesus. Giovanni Battista Tiepolo, The way of the cross.
  • 23. “He chose not a life of softness and ease for the flesh, but one full of labors and pains; for He judged his instructions to be incomplete and insufficient to redeem man, if He failed to teach them how to overcome the demon, the flesh and their own self. He wished to inculcate, that this magnificent victory is gained by the Cross, by labors, penances, mortifications and the acceptance of contempt.” (Mary of Agreda)
  • 24. 9. Jesus spoke to the women of Jerusalem. “My Jesus, I weep for the sins which I have committed against you because of the punishment I deserve for them; and because of the displeasure they have caused You. It is your love, more than the fear of hell which makes me weep for my sins.” -----St. Alphonsus Liguori
  • 25. 10. Jesus fell the third time. At those times, Jesus, when we feel most defeated and want to give up, strengthen us with Your persevering spirit. Your failing strength makes me see how helpless I am. Without You, I can do nothing. Help me to rely on your strength, to see how much I need You.
  • 26. WORDS OF THE QUEEN on the True Disciples of Christ (The Virgin Mary speaks to Sister Mary of Agreda, Spain.)  “I desire that the fruit of the obedience with which thou writest the history of my life shall be, that thou become a true disciple of my most holy Son and of myself. The main purpose of the exalted and venerable mysteries, which are made known to thee, and of the teachings, which I so often repeat to thee, is that thou deny and strip thyself, estranging thy heart from all affection to creatures, neither wishing to possess them nor accept them for other uses. By this precaution thou wilt overcome the impediments, which the devils seek to place in the way of the dangerous softness of thy nature. By the divine teaching thou knowest the one true way of life, which is the Cross; and thou knowest that not all who are called, are chosen. Many there are who wish to follow Christ and very few who truly dispose themselves to imitate Him; for as soon as they feel the sufferings of the Cross they cast it aside. On this account there are so many among mortals, who, forgetful of the eternal truths, seek the flesh; and the continual indulgence of its pleasures. They ardently seek honors and fly from injuries: they strive after riches, and condemn poverty; they long after pleasure and dread mortification. All these are enemies of the Cross of Christ (Phil. 3, 18), and with dreadful aversion they fly from it, deeming it sheer ignominy, just like those who crucified Christ, the Lord.”
  • 27. “Another deceit has spread through the world: many imagine that they are following Christ their Master, though they neither suffer affliction nor engage in any exertion or labor. They are content with avoiding boldness in committing sins, and place all their perfection in a certain prudence or hollow self-love, which prevents them from denying anything to their will and from practicing any virtues at the cost of their flesh. They would easily escape this deception, if they would consider that my Son was not only the Redeemer, but their Teacher; and that He left in this world the treasures of his Redemption not only as a remedy against its eternal ruin, but as a necessary medicine for the sickness of sin in human nature. No one knew so much as my Son and Lord; no one could better understand the quality of love than the divine Lord, who was and is wisdom and charity itself; and no one was more able to fulfill all his wishes (I John 4, 16). Nevertheless, although He well could do it, He chose not a life of softness and ease for the flesh, but one full of labors and pains; for He judged his instructions to be incomplete and insufficient to redeem man, if He failed teach them how to overcome the demon, the flesh and their own self. He wished to inculcate, that this magnificent victory is gained by the Cross, by labors, penances, mortifications and the acceptance of contempt: all of which are the trademarks and evidences of true love and the special watchwords of the predestined.”
  • 28. 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
