In the Sacred Presence of the Most Holy Sacrament of the Altar this day, the Lord gifted me with this vision after meditating on the following:
We must not complain or run away in time of darkness, because out of darkness is born the light. -- Saint Catherine of Siena
Standing in shadow with head bent, and shoulders stooped before a glorious monstrance upon a beautifully appointed altar came a brillant light eminating from the Sacred Host. This warm light, brighter than any earthly glow, enveloped me in warmth. In an instant my body was healed of any discomfort and fatigue. I stood erect as the brillance diminished, and I was again able to see the altar, candles, and ostensorium. Brought to wholeness I praised God for this gift. The gift of fortitude and perserverance to continue our mission for the salvation of souls.
