What a mystery “Frankincense and Myrrh”.
A couple of days after Father JJ visited I had a vision of sorts. Something that was so real and so significant.
I woke up about 3 in the morning to go into the bathroom, and I could clearly smell incense – just like I had burned them in my room. I smelt them all the way from the bathroom and back – they smelled like the incense the Catholic Church burns during Mass. I am not Catholic but my husband is, and I have been to church with him plenty of times.
I went back to bed, when I woke up, I couldn’t smell then anymore, but it was so vivid and real I had to look up the meanings.
It is a sign of something sacred I am sure. What I read was astounding.
Frankincense and Myrrh – Visual Imagery
Links heaven and earth and allows us to enter the presence of God. These incense help transcends space and time, the smoke of the incense rise with prayers for the saints from the hand of the angels before god.
What a powerful sign – I believe it was to comfort me and let me know my husband is going to be OK when he passes. I cannot be thankful enough for this vision – to smell that sacred smell is astounding…
What makes frankincense and Myrrh so precious? The wise men of the new testament bestowed it upon the infant Jesus.
I know they say what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger – what happens if it does kill me?
I just have to keep saying this mantra: God will never give me more than I can handle…
Oh lord please help me in my time of need – may I have patience, stamina and strength to carry me through this task. Things are going from bad to worse…
What a selfless, beautiful spirit I found in Father JJ.
Because of the recent news that my husband may only have a few days or weeks I was anxious to get a priest over to give him a blessing. I did get a number from my social worker because it seems father Norman is so busy.
I called this number and ask Father JJ if he minded giving my husband a blessing. He was the warmest kindest man. He said he would come over after mass, so he did get here about 8 in the evening.
The blessing he gave was beautiful and to both of us – as he walked through the door, he caressed my face and said.
“You have such a beautiful house, but you know what? Your husband is going to be going to a much more beautiful place. He will not be in pain anymore, and he will see his loved ones and have a joyous reunion.
And guess what? You will be going to that beautiful place where you will find peace, and reunite with him one day. “
He then asked if it were possible he would like to be at the mass when my husband transitions.
What an amazing Priest – he rushed over and didn’t know me from Adam, in the night.
Thank You Father JJ…
