Just wanted to say I LOVED and chuckled at your experience
Mary Anna ! There is no doubt in my spirit, the Holy Spirit
orchestrated your events.
It seems to me I have heard of Thomas Merton. There
are many “Catholics” who truly had intimate relationships with the Word
of God..and have been labeled as ‘mystical’ people...Madame Jeanne
Guyon, Andrew Miller, Brother Lawrence.
Many, many years ago, I read the book ‘Practicing the
Presence of the Lord’ by Brother Lawrence. What I gleaned from

heart filled with gratitude and Thanksgiving.
Our Goal is the Prize of the High Calling of Jesus...to
enter the Throne Room, that is the Holy of Holies with Boldness in true

don’t want any of us to remain in the outer court, even in the inner
court. May we ALL be accounted Worthy to enter into the Holy of
Holies by the Power of the Holy Spirit and The Word of God.
So thank you Mary Anna for sharing your thoughts and
