Last May 30, 2016, I was so glad to see my first ever Morning Glory flower amazingly and fully blooming after being naturally quiet for her month-long growth and survival. I was thankful and blessed for this little miracle which I excitedly called as such and lovingly cupped. I even took a photograph of it, shown here. And then, I thought that most probably God was sending a message to me but I wasn't able to discern His words at first.
True enough, Brother Edwin Cruz, Light of Jesus Feast Builder, emailed me and the rest of the event participants. It was a call for a follow-up meeting and a request to write a blog and share one’s experience after the “Awaken The Miracle In You” event, held at the Our Lady of Good Counsel Parish in Surrey, British Columbia, Canada on May 28, 2016.
I could attest that the event, considered as a recollection (retreat for some), was a BIG CHECK for me. Implausible perhaps to other people but for me and the rest of the LOJers, based on my observation and belief, it was a grand success.
This event undoubtedly made me to contemplate and prompted me to say a big check because-
*** It was an event that couldn’t be explained by mere ordinary words and by natural or scientific laws.
*** It was such a wonder that one would think and feel ponderously that there was a supernatural deity, a moving Spirit behind such an inspiring and touching spiritual experience. Well in profound faith, it was God Himself who was behind the over-all event through the Feast Builders, Elders and Workers, especially the main Speakers and Volunteer-Members who were all prayer warriors.
*** Much esteemed as a retreat, it was extraordinarily reflective and conscience-stricken, leading a repentant sinner to go and receive the sacrament of confession. The Speakers were like prophets sent by God in the hope of salvation and repentance most especially this Year of Mercy and Compassion, proclaimed by the Church under the Pontificate of Pope Francis.
*** Everyone was roused and stimulated. Each one was called to be “miracle” workers and to be God’s greatest blessings to other people… I thought it as violating the natural and established laws. Everything was attributed to the supernatural and to the MOST POWERFUL GOD who called us to do miracles, not deserving though yet in our humble ways.
*** It was characterized as a true and beneficial event with Divine Providence freely given to us. Just the laying of hands to the participants would be impossible without the sanctifying presence of the Holy Spirit who continuously works on us; and can I say even without us? I believe so.
*** It was indeed a MIRACLE for me. Big Godly check!
