For me it was an exhilarating five days (January 15-19), which included a prayer meeting, day long retreat led by Jim Browne and a visit to the Divine Mercy Shrine at Stockbridge, MA. Thrown in the mix were two round trips to Hartford- Springfield Airport and two round trips from Lakeville, CT to Taunton, MA. Suddenly my home was private and quiet once more.
On January 25th, I was definitely not myself. That day found me irritable, negative and a bit worried. I was having difficulty with personal interaction and phone exchanges. Frankly I felt under “spiritual attack”eventually asking several friends to pray for me. The next day I felt much better, proceeded to make my apologies to those I snapped at and put the bad day behind me.
Following our routine, I went to prepare dinner for the three of us. I looked out the sliding glass door to the patio area. The gray, cement poured, retaining wall looked “busy” with shadows, shapes, figures etc.. My eyes were immediately directed to the bottom of one wall section. There to my amazement was the face of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
She looks identical to the face on the statue at Tihalina that became the representation of Medjugorje. I took a photograph of the wall and told my mother’s nursing aide. I began notifying friends and placed a phone call to Jim Browne in Ireland. I followed up by notifying Fr. Dennis (substitute priest) at Church of St. Mary. Father came down to the house when asked by me to be a witness. Eventually I ran into Patrick Sullivan at the Lakeville Post Office.
