For my dear sister Maria

Dear Kathryn; What a

Dear Kathryn;

What a beautiful experience! I know that it is something you will never forget. Funny how young we both were but then Our Lord has used children many times for his work.

The look was also very loving to me as well. However, it was all wooden,the cross and figure.

After that, I know that every time I saw a picture, statue of Christ in His passion (even the movie) I see so much beauty and love - I really cannot explain. Where most people would find disturbing, I look at it with so much awe. I remember buying for my mother one Christmas when I was about 13 a bust of Christ with His crown of thorns. I thought it was beautiful and so excited that I was able to save enough money for it. When she opened it she was very quiet and said Thank you and gave me a kiss. It was not until I was in my thirties that she told me that she thought it was the saddest most depressing thing she ever saw. Of course, she kept it and when she passed away last year now I have it and I still see the beauty in it.

I'm just guessing that the Lord gave me this vision to let me know the sacrifice and love He has for us- that it is something for us to relish and not shy away from.

Anyway, thank you so much for sharing. May Our good Lord bless you with every good thing from above!

Yours in Christ,

Yours in Christ,
