For those of you who don’t know Anna, she’s my beautiful second child who is 3 1/2 years old. Born on All Saints Day November 1, 2001. She stunned me last night with the story I’m now telling you all as follows.
Here’s how things started. Saturday night (April 8) about 8 pm Anna came up to me while I was surfing the web and asked to sit on my lap and watch as she often does. At the time I was looking for sites related to Marian apparitions. For those who aren’t familiar with this phrase it means visitations by the Virgin Mary to people here on earth. Yes, Mary has appeared past and present to people all over the world. Fatima, Lourdes, Medjugorge... the list goes on. But that isn’t the focus of this story so I’ll get back to Anna.
I was looking at the page you see below when Anna “took over”. She said (and I quote) “I want to click on Jesus’ heart.” Being not quite sure I heard her right, I asked “What did you say?” And she responded again “I want to click on Jesus’ heart.” So I said “Go ahead” and she took the mouse (she knows how to use a mouse very well from playing games at nickjr.com) and she rolled over monstrance which holds the Eucharist. For my non-Catholic friends reading this, it’s the graphic in the top left hand corner. As you can see, the words below it read Jesus’ Heart. Well Anna can’t read yet (barely knows her ABCs) so needless to say I was shocked! And for those instantly skeptical this is not a phrase Kathy and I have ever used to describe the Eucharist. But this is just the beginning. Please scroll down for more.
