Extra Candle Stands


I have been pondering if I should post this or not and it has taken me some time to do so, but here goes.

Saturday morning, I woke up very early for adoration. My normal hour is from 6 to 7 AM. This week I had gotten there by 5:30 AM. It was a normal morning and Eleanor, a woman who is there that hour was surprised to see me so early, but quite happy about my decision to come early. I walked in and bowed down before doing anything, giving our LORD all my attention. Then I signed the book and walked over to where our LORD was. I noticed two new candle stands. Four total, two directly on either side of the tabernacle, and two new stands, very much lit, next to them but covering the back of the tabernacle. The only reason I noticed it, and it kept my attention was because when I sat “Watching His Back”, I actually squeezed between the candle stands to kiss the tabernacle. I was afraid I might knock them over because there were flowers there also. After some time, I moved back to the front of the tabernacle and prayed a bit longer.

As I sat there, a huge moth flew in the window and landed inside one of the lights and he became stuck in it. When I say huge, I thought it might have been a humming bird. It was to high up for me to reach him to get him out and Eleanor even commented about how I was the one who brought him in with me. I quickly reminded her it came in the window. I walked back again to the back of the tabernacle and sat there for a few moments soon realizing, the new candle stands with the lit candles that I squeezed between, were no longer there. But there was a holy candle in a glass sleeve sitting by the door. I have been pondering this ever since.

God’s Will


What is God’s will? I think the only what to answer this question would be to look at His spouse, our Holy Mother Mary. Once she accepted to do the will of God “Behold the handmaid of the Lord; be it to me according to your word.” not only was she giving in to God 100% but also giving up her life to sere Him. She no longer had Free Will, but God’s Will. Meaning, no matter what she did, it was pleasing to Him. Mary, is then, God’s will in the physical being. She was also “Full of Grace” meaning she was unable to offend God, because she was sinless.
