Found this quote on the Ascension...

By justice, Jesus Christ once risen should have ascended at once to the glory of the right hand of the Father. . .And yet we know very well that for 40 days He wanted to be seen as risen. And why? To affirm, as St. Leo says, by such an excellent mystery, the good news of our faith. . .These 40 days before our ascent to Heaven will pass for us too. Perhaps they will not be days, but months and years. I wish you, my brothers and sisters, a long and prosperous life full of heavenly and material blessings. But finally this life will come to an end. And then we will be happy, if we have assured for ourselves the joy of a happy transit to eternity. Then our resurrection will be complete. There will be no more danger of losing the grace of God. There will no longer be any suffering, no more death, but instead everlasting life with our Savior Jesus Christ in Heaven. May our Lord bless these wishes of mine which I am happy to have demonstrated to show how much I have your happiness at heart, how much I worry and unceasingly pray for it.

~~ Padre Pio

On the Agony in the garden....

Whenever you are seized by melancholy, let your thoughts dwell on that fateful night on which the Son of God began the work of redemption in the solitude of Gethsemane and offer your own sufferings to the Divine Father, along with the sufferings of Jesus.

~~ Padre Pio

But let us take heart. . .Let us glance at the Divine Master who prayed in the Garden and we will discover the true ladder which unites the earth to Heaven. We will discover that humility, contrition and prayer make the distance between man and God disappear, and act in such a way that God descends to man, and man ascends to God, so that they end up understanding, loving and possessing one another.

~~ Padre Pio

O Jesus, how many generous souls. . .have kept Thee company in the Garden, sharing Thy bitterness and Thy mortal anguish. . .How many hearts in the course of the centuries have responded generously to Thy invitation. . .May this multitude of souls, then, in this supreme hour, be a comfort to Thee, who, better than the disciples, share with Thee the distress of Thy heart, and cooperate with Thee for their own salvation and that of others. And grant that I also may be of their number, that I also may offer Thee some relief.

~~ Padre Pio


Consider Jesus' act of acceptance in the Garden and how much it cost Him, making Him sweat blood. Make this act yourself when things are going well and also when they go against you. . .We know that nature shrinks from the cross when things are hard, but we cannot say the soul is not submissive to God's will when we see it carrying out that will, in spite of the strong pull it feels in the opposite direction.
~~Padre Pio

I send you this fervent aspiration from my heart. . .'O Lord, for the incomparable sadness and great desolation Your heart felt on the Mount of Olives and on the cross; and for the great affliction Your dear Mother felt when deprived of Your presence, may You be the joy or at least the strength of this daughter, when the passion and cross are perfectly joined to your soul.'
~~Padre Pio

Carrying of the cross to Mt. Calvary

We must keep the eye of faith fixed on Jesus Christ who climbs the hill of Calvary loaded with his Cross, and as he toils painfully up the steep slope of Golgotha we should see him followed by an immense throng of souls carrying their own crosses and treading the same path. Oh, what a beautiful sight this is. Let us fix our mental gaze firmly on it. We see close behind Jesus our most holy Mother, who follows him perfectly, loaded with her own cross. Then comes the Apostles, Martyrs, Doctors, Virgins and Confessors. . .Jesus himself, despite all our unworthiness, has associated us with this beautiful company. We must make every effort to merge ourselves increasingly in these ranks and hasten with them along the road to Calvary. We should look to the end of the journey and not separate ourselves from this fine company; we must refuse to follow any other way than the one they tread.

~~Padre Pio

Birth of Our Lord

The Heavenly Child suffers and cries in the crib so as to make His suffering for us loveable, meritorious and sought after. He lacked everything so that we might learn from Him to renounce earthly goods. He was pleased with humble and poor adorers so that we might love poverty and prefer the company of the little and simple ones to those of the great of the world. . .With His birth, He indicated our mission, namely to despise what the world loves and seeks.

~~Padre Pio

While I was meditating on the sorrowful mysteries, the thought came to me that through our own sufferings we can merit a higher degree of perfection in heaven.
Therefore our sufferings are of immense benefit to our souls and not only that but they can be offered up for others also without detracting from our own reward.
But then the thought came regarding the sufferings of Our Lord.
His sufferings had absolutely no benefit for Himself. He as God the Son already enjoyed the fullness of eternal glory with the Father and His perfection could not be increased. By suffering   He had no extra reward to claim at the end of it all.
The only sense I can make of it is that because of this terrible suffering He endured there is no one on earth who can say, “God doesn’t love me.” And even when we do love Him back, this too can add nothing to His Glory, Happiness or Perfection, it can only contribute to our own.
It was all for us dear Lord. It was all for us.

Martinfegan, that was so touching to read. A new thought for me to meditate on while saying the Sorrowful mysteries. That He suffered everything for us, that He laid down His Crown for us, to come dwell with us ungrateful creatures. I will never be able to fathom it in my lifetime.

Patricia the most shameful part for me is when I reflect that if I were the only one in the world who needed redemption, the good Lord would have went and done it all just for me.
Even with the meagre sense of justice and conscience I have, what a shame on me if I couldn’t find it in my heart to respond to such love. And indeed the shame still remains when I see plainly how little I do respond and how can I love so little all my dear brothers and sisters who share His very same humanity and He would go to the cross again for each single one of them if it could bring them to love Him.
These thoughts just burn me up to the point where I would just give up but for the knowledge that He still loves me and what He endured leaves me that I cannot doubt this without causing Him even more offense.

So true, Martinfegan.  How patient He must be with us inspite of our constant failings.

Martin, this puzzles me that He do this for each person, that He could give up heaven and living with His Father all for the Love of us. Then to choose to suffer so incredibly. The only people I could imagine giving up and suffering for so completely are my child and grandchildren, but probably all mothers would and that's an instinct for even some animal mothers.
His Glory and Awesomeness is so all-encompassing!

By the way, Shin. I just found something for saying a Rosary. It has the mystery and then the fruit of it.

The Annunciation = humility
The Visitation = charity
The Nativity = poverty
The Presentation = obedience
The Finding of Jesus in the Temple = Joy in Jesus (This one I, as a convert, thought of the finding Real Presence in the Temple)

The Agony in the Garden = trust in God
The Scouring at the Pillar = purity
The Crowning with Thorns = humility
The Carrying of the Cross = patience
The Crucifixion = perseverance

The Resurrection = faith
The Ascension = hope
The Descent of the Holy Spirit = courage
The Assumption of Mary into Heaven = Mary's Help
The Coronation of Mary = Queen of Heaven

I don't know that you need anymore thoughts, but I posted this just in case it might help.

Work has progressed to the point where now we have at least a few meditations for the Sorrowful Mysteries, and more technical corrections have been made to the pages.  crucifix

The rosary pages are nearly ready for public release.

Only some minor editing is left, along with additional quotations for each of the pages, but we have at least a small number of quotes for each mystery, and the main work is to expand these so that there are sufficient variety and then the release.

If you have any quotations on the rosary mysteries to share please suggest them. Cheesy

Thank you Patricia for the St. Padre Pio quotes!
