Out from Heaven’s Palaces

Beloved, I’ve spent a good part of today crying over the two videos below; they are so very beautiful and demonstrate beyond all imagining the truth, strength, and power of God’s love for us.

A number of you heard that I’ve spent the past two weeks in and out of the hospital – actually two hospitals. I’m home three days now and healing, although slowly and am still quite sick to my stomach. I had gone in for a somewhat routine colonoscopy almost two weeks ago, during which my spleen was accidentally lacerated. It sent quite a bit of blood into my system which they say will take a number of weeks to heal.

I’m doing better with each day and awoke this morning with the song below in the video on my heart. I’m not often prone to crying, but cried non-stop at the words and, to me, familiar music of this hymn. What grace is this that brought Our Savior down! May we never get over it – and, please God, never get used to it or take His love and grace for granted.

The second video about the Eucharistic miracle is, I think, the most beautiful and moving one I have ever seen. Some years ago, I was invited on a tour of 13 Eucharistic miracles throughout Italy, including Lanciano. The video of this one from Venezuela has moved me more than any before.

These beautiful videos are an enormous gift to us – reminding us that whatever happens in our lives, in the world or in the Church, the gates of Hell will never prevail against the Church and nothing, not the devil himself, can ever separate or keep us from the love of God in Christ.

I pray you will bask in Our Savior’s love watching these videos and send them out to all you know, unbelievers too. He died for every soul.

Our love and prayers to you with deep gratitude to all who have been praying for my recovery. Our God is faithful.
