From Jagged To Smooth


jagged

Reveling dream during a very short nap…
During a short nap our Lord revealed something very frightening to me…

I was standing in a giant pile of rocks. All of which were very smooth. In my hand was another smooth rock. When I drooped it, our Lord revealed to me, that each and every rock started out jagged and rough and at some time, I was ordered to polish them. I was given no tools in which to do this except my bare hands. By rubbing each rock in my hand, over time, it smoothed them. It occurred to me how much time had to pass for me to polish each rock by hand, simply by rubbing them in my hands. Each jagged rock, was a single sin I had committed. The time spent smoothing them out, was my sentence…

Then I was walking in the sun. A well know woman, pop star singer, was laying in a chair with headphones on, listening to her own music, roasting in the sun. I wanted to tell her about our Lord and how she needed to know about Him. But she didn’t care. She just wanted to listen to “her own music”.

I entered into a tent, well shaded and sat down next to Mother Angelica in a lawn chair. We just knew each other very well through a connection unlike any other. She smiled at me and said, “Aren’t you glad we have the sacrament of Confession?” I said Yes. She said “This is why we have to tell so many how important the sacrament of confession is.”

Our Lords mercy and forgiveness, through the sacrament of confession, takes the roughness from the stones of sin, allowing us to leave that horrible place where the smoothing out needs to take place, much sooner than we could ever imagine…
