Then they spit in his face and struck him with their fists. Others slapped him...jeering, "Prophesy to us, you Messiah! Who hit you that time?" -Matthew 26:68-69
No sooner did Caiphas, with the other members of the Council, leave the tribunal than a crowd of miscreants— the very scum of the people—surrounded Jesus like a swarm of infuriated wasps, and began to heap every imaginable insult upon him. Even during the trial, whilst the witnesses were speaking, the archers and some others could nor restrain their cruel inclinations, but pulled out handfuls of his hair and beard, spat upon him, struck him with their fists, wounded him with sharp-pointed sticks, and even ran needles into his body; but when Caiphas left the hall they set no bounds to their barbarity. They first placed a crown, made of straw and the bark of trees, upon his head, and then took it off, saluting him at the same time with insulting expressions, like the following: ‘Behold the Son of David wearing the crown of his father.’ ‘A greater than Solomon is here; this is the king who is preparing a wedding feast for his son.’ Thus did they turn into ridicule those eternal truths which he had taught under the form of parable to those whom he came from heaven to save; and whilst repeating these scoffing words, they continued to strike him with their fists and sticks, and to spit in his face. Next they put a crown of reeds upon his head, took off his robe and scapular, and then threw an old torn mantle, which scarcely reached his knees, over his shoulders; around his neck they hung a long iron chain, with an iron ring at each end, studded with sharp points, which bruised and tore his knees as be walked. They again pinioned his arms, put a reed into his hand, and covered his Divine countenance with spittle. They had already thrown all sorts of filth over his hair, as well as over his chest, and upon the old mantle. They bound his eyes with a dirty rag, and struck him, crying out at the same time in loud tones, ‘Prophesy unto us, O Christ, who is he that struck thee?' He answered not one word, but sighed, and prayed inwardly for them.
After many many insults, they seized the chain which was hanging on his neck, dragged him towards the room into which the Council had withdrawn, and with their sticks forced him in, vociferating at the same time, ‘March forward, thou King of Straw! Show thyself to the Council with the insignia of the regal honour; we have rendered unto thee.’ A large body of councillors, with Caiphas at their head, were still in the room, and they looked with both delight and approbation at the shameful scene which was enacted, beholding with pleasure the most sacred ceremonies turned into derision. The pitiless guards covered him with mud and spittle, and with mock gravity exclaimed, ‘Receive the prophetic unction—the regal unction.’ Then they impiously parodied the baptismal ceremonies, and the pious act of Magdalen in emptying the vase of perfume on his head. ‘How canst thou presume,’ they exclaimed, ‘to appear before the Council in such a condition? Thou dost purify others, and thou art not pure thyself; but we will soon purify thee.’ They fetched a basin of dirty water, which they poured over his face and shoulders, whilst they bent their knees before him, and exclaimed, ‘Behold thy precious unction, behold the spikenard worth three hundred pence; thou hast been baptised in the pool of Bethsaida.’ They intended by this to throw into ridicule the act of respect and veneration shown by Magdalen, when she poured the precious ointment over his head, at the house of the Pharisee.
By their derisive words concerning his baptism in the pool of Bethsaida, they pointed out, although unintentionally, the resemblance between Jesus and the Paschal lamb, for the lambs were washed in the first place in the pond near the Probatica gate, and then brought to the pool of Bethsaida, where they underwent another purification before being taken to the Temple to be sacrificed. The enemies of Jesus likewise alluded to the man who had been infirm for thirty-eight years, and who was cured by Jesus at the pool of Bethsaida; for I saw this man either washed or baptised there; I say either washed or baptised, because I do not exactly remember the circumstances.
They then dragged Jesus round the room, before all the members of the Council, who continued to address him in reproachful and abusive language. Every countenance looked diabolical and enraged, and all around was dark, confused, and terrific. Our Lord, on the contrary, was from the moment that he declared himself to be the Son of God, generally surrounded with a halo of light. Many of the assembly appeared to have a confused knowledge of this fact, and to be filled with consternation at perceiving that neither outrages nor ignominies could alter the majestic expression of his countenance.
The halo which shone around Jesus from the moment he declared himself to be the Christ, the Son of the Living God, served but to incite his enemies to greater fury, and yet it was so resplendent that they could not look at it, and I believe their intention in throwing the dirty rag over his head was to deaden its brightness.
The 15 Secret Tortures of Jesus
(Approved by Pope Clement XII, 1730-1740.)
*Revealed to Sister Mary Magdalen of the Sancta Clara Order, Franciscan, who lived, died and was beatified in Rome. Jesus fulfilled the wish of this Sister, who fervently desired to know something about the secret sufferings which He endured the night before His death.
Jеsus rеlatеd: “Thе Jеws considеrеd Mе as thе most wrеtchеd man living on еarth, so that is why:
1. Thеy fastеnеd My fееt with a ropе and draggеd Mе ovеr thе stеpping stonеs of thе staircasе, down into a filthy, nausеating cеllar.
2 .Thеy took off My clothing and stung My body with iron joints.
3. Thеy attachеd a ropе around My body and pullеd Mе on thе ground from еnd to еnd.
4. Thеy hangеd Mе on a woodеn piеcе with a slip knot until I slippеd out and fеll down. Ovеrwhеlmеd by this torturе, I wеpt bloody tеars.
5. Thеy tiеd Mе to a post and piеrcеd My body with various arms.
6. Thеy struck Mе with stonеs and burnt Mе with blazing еmbеrs and torchеs.
7. Thеy piеrcеd Mе with awls; sharp spеars torе My skin, flеsh and artеriеs out of My body.
8. Thеy tiеd Mе to a post and madе Mе stand barеfoot on an incandеscеnt mеtal shееt.
9. Thеy crownеd Mе with an iron crown and wrappеd My еyеs with thе dirtiеst possiblе rags.
10. Thеy madе Mе sit on a chair covеrеd with sharp pointеd nails, causing dееp wounds in My body.
11. Thеy pourеd on My wounds liquid lеad and rеsin; and aftеr this torturе, thеy prеssеd Mе on thе nailеd chair, so that thе nails wеnt dееpеr and dееpеr into My flеsh.
12. For shamе and affliction, thеy drovе nееdlеs into thе holеs of My uprootеd bеard. Thеy tiеd my hands bеhind My back and lеd Mе walking out of prison with strikеs and blows.
13. Thеy thrеw Mе upon a cross and attachеd Mе so tightly that I could hardly brеathе anymorе.
14. Thеy thrеw at My hеad as I lay on thе еarth, and thеy stеppеd on Mе, hurting My brеast. Thеn, taking a thorn from My crown, thеy drovе it into My tonguе.
15.Thеy pourеd into My mouth thе most immodеst еxcrеtions, as thеy uttеrеd thе most infamous еxprеssions about Mе.”
Thеn Jеsus addеd:
“My daughtеr, I dеsirе that you lеt еvеryonе know thеsе fiftееn sеcrеt torturеs, in ordеr that еvеry onе of thеm bе honorеd.”
“Anyonе who daily offеrs Mе, with lovе, onе of thеsе suffеrings and says with fеrvor thе following prayеr, will bе rеwardеd with еtеrnal glory on thе day of judgmеnt.”
“My Lord and My God, it is my unchangeable will to honor You in these fifteen secret torments when You shed Your Precious Blood: As many times as there are grains of sand around the seas, as grains of wheat in the fields, as blades of grass in the meadows, as fruit in the orchards, as leaves on the trees, as flowers in the gardens, as stars in the sky, as angels in Heaven, as creatures on earth. So many thousands of times may You be glorified, praised and honored, O most love-worthy Lord Jesus Christ—Your Holiest Heart, Your Precious Blood, Your Divine Sacrifice for mankind, the Holiest Sacrament of the Altar, the Most Holy Virgin Mary, the nine glorious choirs of Angels and the Blessed Phalanx of the Saints, from myself and everyone, now and forever, and in the eternal ages.”
Public revelation is binding on all Christians, but private revelation is binding only on those who receive it. The Catholic Church teaches that public revelation was completed, and therefore was concluded, with the death of the last apostle (Vatican II, Dei Verbum 4), but private revelation has continued.
"Throughout the ages, there have been so-called ‘private’ revelations, some of which have been recognized by the authority of the Church. They do not belong, however, to the deposit of faith. It is not their role to improve or complete Christ’s definitive revelation, but to help live more fully by it in a certain period of history. Guided by the magisterium of the Church, the sensus fidelium[collective sense of the faithful] knows how to discern and welcome in these revelations whatever constitutes an authentic call of Christ or his saints to the Church. Christian faith cannot accept ‘revelations’ that claim to surpass or correct the revelation of which Christ is the fulfillment, as is the case in certain non-Christian religions and also in certain recent sects which base themselves on such ‘revelations’" (Catechism of the Catholic Church 67).
Extreme views on private revelations
Some people tend to go to one extreme or the other on private revelation; they either completely reject the concept or they consider private revelation their chief rule of faith. The original sixteenth century Protestant Reformers denied all private revelation—they had to, for all the miracles that had occurred and all the private revelations that had been received over the previous fifteen hundred years had confirmed rather than attacked the Catholic faith. The original Reformers’ actions were in direct disobedience to the binding command of the New Testament: "Do not quench the Spirit. Do not despise prophetic utterances. Test everything; retain what is good" (1 Thess. 5:19–21).
