Mystery advice from grandma: God made the Blessed Virgin Mary “plenty good enough”, so she never needed to draw attention to herself.


Our Lady was hidden, decreased and set aside most of her life, yet she is mysterious, beguiling, utterly lovely and loving. She carried the Mystery of the Incarnate Word – also hidden and set aside – in her womb.  She never sought affirmation or approval for their own sake, she didn’t try to convince those around her of her goodness, abilities or her “epic” Friday nights adventures.

Yet there aren’t enough superlatives in the world to describe her. There is no artist except One, who could ever attempt to capture her mystery or her loveliness. There is no one better at “making them wonder” than the Blessed Mother. We could wonder and wonder and wonder about her and never get tired of wondering.

Boy of three claims he saw his great grandmother in heaven while he was clinically dead after falling into a pond

Professor Lothar Schweigerer, director of the Helios Clinic where Paul was taken, said: ‘I have never experienced anything like it.

The boy said that while unconscious he saw his great grandmother Emmi, who had turned him back from a gate and urged him to go back to his parents.

Paul said: ‘There was a lot of light and I was floating. I came to a gate and I saw Grandma Emmi on the other side.

‘She said to me, “What are you doing here Paul? You must go back to mummy and daddy. I will wait for you here.”

‘I knew I was in heaven. But grandma said I had to come home. She said that I should go back very quickly.

‘Heaven looked nice. But I am glad I am back with mummy and daddy now.’
