My Daily Eucharist - Reflection for November 21, 2017

In Europe I have known a poor little peasant girl who like Bernadette used to take care of sheep. I met her through the Archbishop who invited me to talk with her and to give my opinion about her case. He told me he had her case examined by five eminent theologians. They all told him she was a second Margaret Mary. She spoke to me simply, plainly and at great length, for she had confidence in me. She enjoyed an extraordinary privilege, that of seeing what goes on at the altar as you see me sitting here. For her there was no veil during Holy Mass. For her Mass was Calvary, as on Good Friday. And in her simplicity and candor she thought everyone enjoyed the same privilege as she. She was forbidden to speak to anyone about what she saw. There were miracles to prove that she really was what she seemed to be, a Margaret Mary. All this I learned from her.
