We were just getting ready to begin the last decade and it was around 1:35 when I looked up and the back doors of the Church swung open. A women entered with the sun streaming in behind her. As she walked forward I could see her face.. it was Linda. At seeing her I jumped up and raised one arm in the air to gesture to her. Linda was here. Our Lady, had safely brought her in time. The rest of the afternoon would fall together piece by piece. Speaking with those in attendance at the reception no one had noticed all these bumps along the way. Instead they had bright eyes full of hope and joy. The quote spoken at Mass that week echoed in my mind. "Fear is useless what is needed is faith" (Mark 5:26). Our Lady of the Rosary had shown me that we have nothing to fear when we consecrate ourselves to her Immaculate Heart and the Sacred Heart of her Son. If we take refuge under her protection through a devotion to her Holy Rosary she will provide. She will bring all the pieces together. There was a feeling that Our Lady desired there to be nothing standing between us. She wanted all false securities in ourselves washed away and a strengthening of Trust in her and her Son.
This lesson seemed so well timed as we were just days away from the beginning of the Year of Faith. Our Lady and her Son have repeatedly told us to come to them as children. To trust as a small child does in their parent. On Our Lady's Feast of the Holy Rosary we were not only led by the prayers of children but Our Lady showed us we must always have the Faith of a small child.
