The Holy Family of Nazareth Comes to Visit
It was just about midnight, and I had finished my prayers when all of a sudden, I could see this bright light that kept appearing.
Blessed Mother then suddenly appeared with little Boy Jesus and St Joseph. They came as the Holy Family of Nazareth accompanied by an angel.
The Blessed Mother smiled, and she said, “We thought, and then we said, let us go and visit Valentina.”
I said, “Oh, Blessed Mother, what a beautiful surprise!”
“We have come to console you because you have had a lot of suffering during Lent. Since we are still in Easter, we thought we would like to share something with you.”
I said, “Oh, thank you, Blessed Mother.”
In spirit, we found ourselves standing around my dining table in the kitchen, Blessed Mother, St Joseph, little Boy Jesus and I.
Jesus was all in white, St Joseph was elegantly dressed, while Blessed Mother was in a beautiful long white gown made of lovely crispy material. Her gown was covered with a very pale blue shawl, falling gently to the ground, and she wore a white mantilla covering her hair, which matched her dress.
I said, “Oh, Blessed Mother, I have to offer you something.”
Without putting anything out for my guests, a long loaf of bread appeared on the table, like a Vienna bread, about half a metre long. Next to the bread was a beautiful white dish like a bowl cup. The red wine was in this dish. It was red, but not too dark.
Blessed Mother said, “We would like you to share with us in this banquet.
That represents the Precious Blood and Body of our Lord Jesus.”
“Oh”, I said, “Blessed Mother, I am so happy.”
We started cutting the bread and sharing it. We shared a few pieces.
I said, “Blessed Mother, what will I do with the rest of it?”
“Take some and share the rest with others,” she said.
The Holy Family stayed for quite a while.
The Bread represents the Word of God. In Holy Communion, we receive the Body of Christ, which nourishes us, and when we share with people the Holy Word of our Lord, we nourish them. We nourish their spirit. The Precious Blood protects us and washes away our sins.
