Heavenly Scents

I woke up a few times in the night to smell a beautiful scent of a blend of flowers. I've smelled them before at Mass on occasion. Sometimes I would wonder if that were the person in front or beside me with the perfume. But now that it has happened when alone and no floral stuff is in here, then I have received a special grace to know that while I sleep I am watched over. What a blessing to know that they are near.

I'm supposed to work overtime today, but I need to ask that I leave at 5 p.m. so I can make Mass at 5:30. It is a Holy Day of Obligation and Mass is one that I delight in. Mass is a gift that is treasured. O Happy Day!

Hi Jackie!

Hi Ginny, thank you! I take it you have been graced with the scent of flowers too. It is awesome when it comes.

They say Padre Pio emanated a beautiful scent of violets to good people, and a horrible scent of manure to people who were not in God's grace. can you imagine?

Marie Cecile said...

Pia, I didn't know that about Padre Pio. Thank you for sharing it with us.
