For my dear sister Maria

Dear Eweems:

Funny you should mention from early you felt him. That brought to my mind a moment I would like to share.

When I was about 5-6 yrs old, my aunt took me for a visit to a church. While she was praying, I started looking at the different altars and statuary around (Old Catholic church which had several)

I was looking at one and how beautiful the flowers were and then I turned to my right and there was this huge crucifix with Christ looking down at me. I was frozen. It must have been at least 9 ft tall. It was as if he were calling to me and His face was so loving. My aunt kept calling me to come and I could not move. Finally, she came over to get me and I left and He looked sad bt someone I knew we would meet again.

When recently I was telling someone this story, the person told me that it had to be a vision because a Catholic altar would not have had a crucifix on the altar and a huge crucifix on a wall next to it. This is true only one crucifix is allowed within the altar area.

This image has come to me many times over the years and has always let me know he is with me and I am to follow him.

There have been also many moments in my life where I was in physical danger for my life and miraculously I was spared. Do not know why other than there has to be some work He wants me to accomplish. I knew I was being protected and thank Him so much for His grace.

Thank you for sharing. If more comes to mind, I would love to hear. Many blessings to you!

Yours in Christ,

Yours in Christ,
Maria 玛丽亚
