Ezra (The Angel of Mercy and Love)

The angel Ezra comes. He says: “Praise be to Jesus.”

He dictated the following rosary meditations centering on the Divine Will:


I. Agony in the Garden
“Even the Son of God surrendered completely – perfectly – to His Father's Divine Will. In the Garden at Gethsemane, Jesus surrendered His Will to the Eternal Divine Will, not begrudgingly, but with Divine Love. He was not above asking the Father to suspend the fateful suffering that lie ahead. But in the end, Jesus accepted His Father's Will. God's Will, though it may seem bitter at times, is never without consolation. In the Garden after Jesus accepted His Father's Will, an angel came to comfort Him.”

II. The Scourging
“Once Jesus accepted His Father's Will in the Garden, he did not look back with regret. He accepted the biting blows of the scourging, knowing many souls depended on His surrender to God's Will in the name of Divine Love.”

III. The Crowning with Thorns
“Humiliation such as Jesus endured as He was crowned with thorns can only be endured without complaint through deep humility. In this Mystery, humility and love are most evident together, as Jesus could have stopped this persecution at any time. His love for His Father's Will would not permit Him to do so.”

IV. Carrying of the Cross
“Jesus knew every fall, every pain was used by His Father in Heaven for the good of souls. Under the weight of the Cross, Jesus became an instrument of His Father's Divine Will. Every step was a step into deeper Divine Love.”

V. The Crucifixion
“It was not the nails that held Jesus to the Cross, but His love for His Father's Will in the present moment. He could have come down from the Cross at any time. But He held in His Heart a depth of love for the Eternal Divine Will beyond all telling.”
