The Rosary Book from Jesus and Mary

Jesus speaks: My dear little child, please write up the meditations on the rosary. Ask Marty to help you and ask Harold to use his picture for the cover. You are to begin recounting your experiences daily. Start with the experiences from July 5, 1994. Include Fr. Carter's part in the rosary and Marty's part in the rosary. Write down the events you see daily, by date. Write down what you see. Include October 31, 1994 rosary. Marty is your partner in publishing the rosary book. You should list all you both see. Include the Christmas rosary. Begin by writing down your rosary meditations. All will become clear as you begin your rosary journal. Your time recounting these events will lead to a closer understanding of Our lives and Our intimacy with each other.

Mary speaks: Your union with My Son and the Father and the Holy Spirit will deepen as your understanding of the union between myself and Jesus grows. From this day forward you will be closely united to me, your mother, and closely united to Jesus through the rosary. I want you to lead the rosary always. Always dim the lights and use candles. I will be there and Jesus will be there whenever you pray the rosary. We will be with you in a very special way. Your job is to promote the rosary. When you pray the rosary, tell them about my letters to them, centered around my Son in the Eucharist.

Always pray the rosary. Always center it in the Eucharist. Ask Marty and Fr. Carter to help you. This will be a powerful tool for bringing many to the rosary and to loving My Son in the Eucharist. I am Mary, your mother, and that is My Christmas gift to all. Pray the rosary for us.

Mary speaks: My dear ones, I want pictures of the rosary and seven sorrows in the rosary book. I would like meditations on the seven sorrows. I would like the songs that could be used during the different mysteries of the rosary. I would like rosary meditations and certain messages that pertain to meditations on some mysteries. My rosary, prayed as I have instructed, will lead many hearts to Our Two Hearts. We are so closely united in the rosary. The rosary is the most beautiful prayer. Singing between the Hail Marys pleases me so much. Lift up your hearts. Pray the rosary with your whole heart and it will live in your day. I, your beloved mother, and My Son thank you for responding to my call.

This is My Mother’s House

Jesus speaks: This is My Mother’s house. I was born in a stable. Her house is in need of repairs. So, too, are the hearts of men.

Messenger: Mary and Jesus will work in their hearts to restore the peace and harmony for which they were created.

Mary speaks: As this building, which has turned shabby, is restored, men’s hearts will be restored here to the burning love of my Son.

Messenger: Take out the debris from your hearts, make them pure and restore them to vibrant life in Him.

Mary speaks: Your building will be restored more quickly the more you help to enkindle the love of my Son in their hearts. As the progress is slow, so, too, is the restoration slow. Circulate these letters of my Son’s love this day.

Feast of the Holy Innocents

Before the tabernacle in Church


Sorrowful Mysteries


The Agony in the Garden

1. Jesus suffered such agonies to His Most Sacred Heart in the Garden.

2. Jesus, the Son of God, is truly present in this room at this very moment.

3. As present as He was in the Garden that night as He felt all the agonies to His Most Sacred Heart. He is with us this very moment, God, in the Tabernacle.

4. He saw before Him all the sins of all men for all time, and He felt anguish to His Heart to see men commit such vile deeds.

5. Such anguish to His Heart to love each and every person so dearly and to see them chose evil and hatred in their way of life.

6. He saw before Him all His sufferings, His entire Passion, every blow, every kick, the nails in His hands, and He saw at the same time all those souls that would be condemned to death to final damnation despite His suffering.

7. He loves us so much that He remains with us this day in His Divinity and His humanity, no less present than the day Mary held Him in  her arms and the day that He walked on Calvary with a cross on His back. No less present was He there than He is in this room at this time with us.

8. See Jesus in the darkened night, and see Him and His infinite love that He has for each one of us, in such anguish that His sweat became as great drops of blood upon the ground.

9. He cries out to us as He did to the apostles ... Can you not wait one hour with me?

10. He suffered such anguish to His Heart for all the souls that would receive Him in communion and not even talk to Him or realize that they were truly receiving the Son of God with His Heart on fire for love of them.




The Scourging at the Pillar

1. Hear the jeers and the angry sounds of the men as they seize Jesus and tie Him with such hatred to the pillar.

2. They whipped Jesus so harshly to their own exhaustion. They whipped Him and whipped Him.

3. Hear the blows as they give the blows to Jesus, the hard blows, and listen to the sounds and hear Jesus as He so softly makes silent cries.

4. His once unblemished back is now covered with wounds.

5. Jesus' Heart is open and is on fire and is all pure and is totally a Heart of pure love, and men and their hearts can be filled with such hatred and anger for one another. He calls us to love Him and to love each other.

6. What of the hearts of these men who beat Jesus so harshly? Such anger such hatred, to beat Jesus until He bled.

7. The heart is whereby we connect with Jesus. Pray to the Holy Spirit to help us be more deeply united to Jesus.

8. He asks us to make our hearts pure, to pray for the grace to help us to let go of the things that are unloving so that love can penetrate our hearts and His love can flow through us to our brothers.

9. He longs and thirsts and waits for our love. He loves us so much. He waits here, Jesus the Son of God, waiting for us to come and tell Him how we truly love Him.

10. Jesus:  I love you, my dearly beloved ones, with a Heart that is open and filled with fire for love of you.




The Crowning of Thorns

1. They pounded into Jesus' most precious head a sharp crown of piercing thorns.

2. They clothed Him in a dirty purple robe and they mocked Him and gave Him a scepter and they said that He was a King.

3. The blood ran from His thorns down the side of His face and into His eyes.

4. His vision was blurred. He ached from His head to His feet with such pain from the deep wounds that they had inflicted on Him. But His greatest suffering was that to His Heart for He loved those men that treated Him so cruelly. He loved each and every one of those men as they beat Him and they mocked Him and they spit on Him. The agonies to His       most precious Heart were what He suffered the greatest.

5. As He suffered so for the sins of men, He was comforted by the love that we give to Him this day. He suffered for our indifferences, for our neglect, for our hot and cold hearts. But He was comforted by the great acts of love, by the time that we spend with Him, by the time that we spend after communion with Him. These were the sweet tastes to    His mouth when He suffered this bitterness all through His Passion.

6. The blood ran from His mouth because of the blows they gave to His most precious head.

7. Song:  Only this I want

8. This is the reality: that God runs this world, that Jesus Christ, the Son of God, truly came to this earth and suffered and gave His life and rose on the third day because He loves us so very much.

9. Our every breath is dependent on God.

10. Help me to see, dear Jesus, through the eyes of God all that You want me to see where I am blind, so that I may see more and more the love that You outpour to me here and the love that You have to give so that I can love more my brothers.




Jesus Carries His Cross

1. Jesus truly carried His cross. See Him with a cross on His back and at that point see all the sins of all men for all time, the heaviness of the cross, the wounds on His body, the wounds on His most precious head, and to His most precious Heart to see all the sin and the hatred and the anger. How it broke His heart to see the souls that He had so much love for reject His love and choose this hate and this anger.

2. He walked the walk; His mother by his side always on Calvary, walking and hearing the sounds of the crowd that poked and laughed. And she stood by helplessly, the mother in her heart not able to raise her hand and help Him, and watched this persecution of her beloved child.

3. And in His Heart, this heart of love, the suffering that He went through to His heart was so immense that we have no idea.

4. The Son of God came to earth as a little baby and He took on a human body out of greatest love for us..

5. The pressure from the cross was so hard on His shoulder, His shoulder ached so badly He felt as if it would break.

6. Look at His arms that held the cross as He walked and see these beautiful arms of Jesus, battered, splintered, and so tired from carrying this heavy cross.

7. See the wounds to Jesus' body: His back badly wounded, His shoulder, His head crowned with piercing thorns. Wounds all over tore His flesh and He carries this heavy cross with love for all those who stand by and jeer at Him.

8. He asks us to carry our cross with love for one another. He says that The Way is not always the easy way. The Way to Him is to pick up your cross and to follow Him.

9. Song:  Lord, let me walk that lonesome road with You, under the weight of the wood. Lord, let me walk that last mile in Your shoes, under the weight of the wood.

10.  Hail Mary




Jesus is Crucified and Dies on the Cross

1. Such intimacy between Jesus and Mary. She held Him as an infant, she was with Him all through His life. Now she walked the Passion and she stood under the cross. Her once baby, little hands and feet ... now His hands and feet were pounded into the cross with big nails.

2. Mary stood under the cross without a scar on her body, but her heart was in such anguish as she watched and she suffered. She withstood it all. She didn't leave. She stayed there, as she stays by our side, forever by our side in all of our sufferings. Mary is with us. She is present to us and she mothers us as she mothered her child Jesus all through His life. She was always there. And Jesus' last thoughts were of us to give us His beloved Mother as our mother to be forever by our side.

3. Jesus gave His all. He gave all of His blood to the last beat of His Heart. He said yes to the Father's Will to give Himself for love of us.

4. Be there and stand with Mary and hear the sounds. Hear the wind blow and see it dark as night as Jesus hangs. He doesn't hang straight as we see Him on some of the crosses, but He is hanging on a cross, holding on so close to death. Jesus loved us so much He died for us.

5. He calls out to us from the Tabernacle. He says "I gave myself for love of you." For love of us, He gives Himself to us this day and remains with us. Just as present as the day He hung on the cross, He is with us in this room with the greatest love and He wants us to know how He thirsts and how He longs and waits for us to come so He can shower this love upon us. And He waits for us to tell Him how we truly love Him.

6. Song:  A Song From Jesus

7. The heart of Mary knows the Heart of Jesus. Mary knew Jesus as a child. Mary knew Jesus in her womb. Mary knew Jesus so well in her heart, and it is through her loving heart and her love for Jesus that we will be in such union with Him.

8. Mary, as you held Jesus so closely to your chest, hold us so tightly close to your chest and lead us to the deepest recesses of Jesus' Heart where He wants to love us so intently.

9. Mary held Him in her arms when He took His first breath in this world and she held Him in her arms when He died, when He after His death lay under the cross. In between are the lives of Jesus and Mary, this closeness between Their two Hearts. Mary and Jesus so one. Mary and Jesus love us in such love. And it is in this love that we will be led to the closest union with God through the Spirit.

10. Mary, help us to know and to love Jesus as you loved Jesus. Help us to be saturated with His grace and be loving.  Nothing here can compare to love that God has for us. He wants to give to us His love. He outpours this love in front of the tabernacle.

        Sing:  I Love You Jesus.
