We gather at the brook. We offer up the Rosary today in thanksgiving for the life of X____who died on 29 November 1995. We are in a shock situation because his death was not expected. We had hopes that he would stay with us longer. As we pray, I have an understanding that X____ did not wish to refuse God’s call.
As we pray, Y____(also known as ____and also ____) and Z____ arrive. I am happy that they are here. Fr ____ left for Thailand. He came as if he were responding to a call from X…. When we visited X… in hospital, Fr. ____ and Dr ____ (the Chief of Medical Staff at ____in Bangkok) and I, I noticed that a certain understanding passed between X____ and Father, when they talked about the miraculous healing from terminal cancer of Fr ____ I could read their minds, both Fr ____ and X____'s. They communicated like this:
X____: “I also can be healed, Father, but I am not sure if it is better or not.”
Fr ____: “It does not make that much difference, you still have to die. As for me, I believe I would have been better off if I had died at the time of my grave sickness. You see, I would have died in a state of grace. Now I have to do more and more work and in the end, I will die again. I pray that it comes again when I am in state of grace!”
As I looked up, I saw Fr____ was anointing X____. X____ died the next day, surprising everyone. Father ____ spent that whole night with Y____ while we held a short Vigil for X____.
As all these thoughts crowd my mind and as we recite the Holy Rosary, the Blessed Virgin appears. She stands in the water, in the middle of the brook. She speaks:
Tell Y____ that I am sustaining her in her loss. Now she is experiencing what she has been praying for. I say to her not to grieve. I understand that from her life, at this moment, she must suffer, but I am there to assist her, and all those dear to her, to carry their sorrow knowing that it comes from God, the Father, the Almighty and that is good.
Again I say, do not grieve, for that which the Father gives you is a blessing of many graces. Rather, tell Y____ that from her hands, as they held X____, I have received him into my own hands to guide him further. Here he will stand for only a moment. Describe to Y____ how he is.
X____ was suddenly next to the Blessed Mother. He looked very serene, smiling, happy. He looked towards us and said what I believe was a word of thanks. The Blessed Virgin spoke again:
This last happening brings to your close attention some aspect of what I have been teaching you. Please meditate on my teachings, my exhortations and all that I have said to you so far. Do not fear life; do not fear death. Love your Father in Heaven and all shall be well for each of you.
As I look up, she has left us.
Afterwards, during Holy Mass, I pray that I may be as happy as X____ and that I may be able to always understand and accept all that comes from God our Father, the Almighty.
