Have a Holy, Happy, and Hearty Month of Mary, this Marian May of 2012, starting with St. Joseph the Worker, every May 1 – Memorial. [Mary in my right arm, Christ Jesus within and without, and Joseph in my left.]This May message takes up the theme of ROSES and the Rosary…. St. Louis Marie de Montfort wrote in The Secret of the Rosary how the rose is “the Queen of Flowers.”The messages of Maria Rosa Mystica to Pierina Gilli were so prophetic . Just a few here: Divine Mercy spirituality in the world, crises in the Church, the blooming out eventually all the more of Her Mystical Rose and spirituality, increases in religious vocations wherever She is honored… BUT EVEN, in a hidden way, a prophetic hint of what would become THE LUMINOUS MYSTERIES. HOW?The Mystical Rose appeared with 3 roses: a white rose, a red rose (at center), and a yellow-golden rose [in her Italian diary: “rosa giallo-oro”]. The last of the 3 is clearly seen as but one rose, yet it was prophetic in that this was the only rose with a blend of two color tones being described giallo-oro. Separately they match the 3rd & 4th (later set of the Mysteries of Light). HENCE:White goes with the Joyful Mysteries (even in the liturgical garb). Red goes with the Sorrowful (Palm Sunday, Good Friday -- red vestments]. Gold goes with the Glorious Mysteries. But why did She not just say of a gold rose, or of a yellow rose – why golden yellow? Prophetic!!Yellow go so obviously with the Luminous Mysteries. For example, whenever an artist paints the sun, it is usually of a bright yellow. See on this site how it is the brightest: http://www.colormatters.com/yellow”Yellow is the most Luminousof all the colors of the spectrum. It’s the color that captures our attention more than any other color.”Sensing inspiration to ask the Mystical Rose what would be 3 other sets of rosary mysteries to complement the already existing ones for greater order in order to have one evenly allotted for each day of the week, I went to the Vatican with what I sensed She gave me that very night and the following morning. These were drawn up, laminated, and handed over to the Secretary (Msgr. Ranjieth) then of the Prefect (Cardinal Arinze) for the Congregation of Divine Worship at the Vatican. Msgr. Ranjieth, (now the Cardinal Archbishop in Colombo, Sri Lanka) promised me that these would make it to Pope Benedict XVI. Only after conceiving of these extra 15 mysteries did I check the writings of Blessed Anne Catherine Emmerich to see if she had anything on the rosary. She wrote that originally the rosary mysteries were more: furthermore, her description fits those that I believe [you are not obliged to] the Holy Spirit gave to me via Maria, Rosa Mystica here in Mexico and that Pope Benedict has supposedly seen with the 24 consultants to the Congregatio de Culto Divino per the promise of Msgr. Ranjieth.Without permission to divulge and distribute them at this time, if ever, even though the Vatican later requested of me a booklet on these other 15 mysteries, I can share with you what color roses would go with them and what their names are [some of you already know them] or may one day universally become in the Church: Prophetic (blue rose), Purgative (purple rose), and Unitive (green rose). Note how the DWCR (in the box) brings the 3 ways of the mystical/spiritual life into focus: Purgative (Mondays), Illuminative (Thursdays), and Unitive (Sundays)... making the Rosary Cycle all the more mystical in the plan of Mary, Mystical Rose, Queen of the Most Holy Rosary....So, in their weekly order: “The Definitive Weekly Cycle of the Rosary”Sunday - green, Unitive.Monday- blue, PropheticTuesday- purple, Purgative Wednesday- white, JoyfulThursday– yellow, LuminousFriday – red, SorrowfulSaturday – gold, GloriousSome artistic renderings mix up the 3 roses across the Mystical Rose… typically red, white, then gold. However, She appeared in the order of the traditional 3 sets: white (Joyful), red (Sorrowful), and gold (Glorious). This order is preserved in the Definitive Weekly Cycle of the Rosary indicated in the box above… with the Luminous in between the Joyful and Sorrowful, since that is already the chronological order … Luminous on Thursdays for the Last Supper. The Joyful have no direct connections with Mondays, and therefore if ever the universal Church approves of further amplification of the Rosary Mysteries, it may well end up where I recommended in the booklet I sent the Vatican – on Wednesday. Why? Chronological to the preceding ones (see the chart), but also by Divine Providence: namely, Joseph’s weekday votive Masses are on Wednesdays in Catholic Tradition… what are the only mysteries he appears in? You got it: WEDNESDAY!!! The Joyful Mysteries. Easter Vigil (the main liturgy) falls on Saturday. Now surely Sunday is still the major resurrection day, but since the major liturgical celebration of Easter falls on Saturday, the Glorious go there (see the first Puerto Rican proclaimed holy: Blessed Carlos Manuel Cecilio Rodriguez: his favorite saying was, “We live for this night!” – Easter Vigil). The Unitive, and I won’t write them up here since they yet need Vatican approval, to mention but the last one is The Beatific Vision (face-to-Face with God in Heaven)…. Therefore, it would take Sunday precedence… as THE FIRST DAY for all eternity. Do GREEN ROSES exist? Yes… one official name: “Rosa chinensis viridiflora” 2 sites from among others:
