why me? A thought from a friend of a local visionary.
The Feast of Our Lady of Lourdes, the Mother of the Healing Waters of Life
I remember writing a time or two ago about meeting a woman at bus stop whom I knew and who needed a ride. As we drove to her bank we discussed some events where we were both present. I thought she said, "Why did God pick you there are much better catholic men for the job?" You know I heard it and so did another. I, from hindsight and other later times, realized I was privileged to hear what she was thinking. Guess what I asked Mary.
I prayed and asked, "Why me there are others who would be more valuable to this work".
"They all turned it down one way or another." was my answer. "What about those you played with around God's feet as He created the world?' "They never returned"
"Why me, then?" "Because you are a mouth, and have never bent your neck to any man".
That was surprising and I shut up before I said too much in prayer.
There have been other occasions not when I asked questions but when I needed straightening out. My goodness have I ever been stepped on for my nature.
There were previous times when I used a prayer to find out who was in my mind so strongly as I prayed.
I, Michael, sealed in the Holy Spirit, baptized and anointed in the Precious Blood and healing water of my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, trusting in Mary to make my prayer suitable to God's ears ask in the Holy Name of Jesus Christ, that God will command whoever speaks to me on ...... will give me their name.
I always got an answer. But how did I know if it was righteous? Well remember earlier I wrote of those who condescendingly told me to test the spirits, yet were unable to tell me how and I was annoyed. Well I already knew by scriptures how too. What annoyed me was the spiritual jealousy and arrogant dismissal their advice more often than not contained. Did one of you ever ask me if I had taken precautions to protect my soul and others? No, why because many truly believe, but wrongly believe there is no way God would use someone like me. I'm not imagining the sentiments up front and center in many of you.
I also used the above prayer to combat awfulness of some of the names I was heard, to send them back where they came from. You know Lucifer, satan and legion and other of that sort. I changed a phrase to say after the Most Holy Name I cast you into the woeful abyss to burn eternally in the fires of hell never to bother the Children of God again.
There were times when I did not get an answer and I used through the power of our holy mother the Church and I did get answers. This did not happen very often.
The time came when I received no answer and I just sent the owner of the voice to hell. After this had happened often, Mary said, "You must stop sending me to hell Michael, it agitates the devil when I appear with Michael". I apologized and was told, "If you do not recognize me after all these years, you should go to confession".
So I did poor poor priest.What about me I must be strong in faith or have absolute knowledge or be very crazy to think that Heaven would speak and use me this way. But let me ask you all two questions, "How many of you could write and acknowledge what you have just read publicly? How many of you are brave enough perhaps to do what I seem to have been asked. Mary said I was the only one left. What do you think?
