Three days before the entry of Jesus in Jerusalem, Our Beloved Lord visited a pious woman of the region of Galilee. The prayers of this humble old lady were so many that Jesus, when passing near her house, innerly heard her request for those who would crucify the Son of God.
Jesus approached this humble woman and she felt the presence of the Love of the Master; love that He radiated with intensity wherever he went by.
Even without being able to see Him physically, she felt Him in her heart; and Jesus, upon entering her house, approached her and gave her the blessing. The old lady seemed still when she learned she was for the first time in front of He who would give His life for her.
Then the Master, imposing His Hands over the eyes of the pious woman, healed her from her blindness and permmitted her to see Him, as she always had wanted to. The old lady knelt before Him for this miracle and started kissing His Feet, bathing them with an abundant flow of tears.
Jesus raised her and, when looking at her eyes, He said that He was giving her peace for her to have it forever and that she should continue praying for her Lord, because His time was approaching, the most difficult time of His agony.
The old lady, attending His request, answered that she had been praying for a long time for the enemies of Jesus for them to convert themselves some day.
The Lord taught His apostles, those who were moved by what had happened to the old lady, that the Kingdom of God is the treasure of the most humble ones at heart. And He asked them if they knew why this poor woman had been healed.
The apostles became without words and in silence, and Jesus answered them that the faith of this simple woman had healed her, the faith she felt for God through His Son; and all that in essence permitted this miracle was the detachment she had from herself to the point of not perceiving that she was totally blind.
I thank you for responding to My call.
Who blesses you,
Your Mother Mary, Rose of Peace
