Very clearly I saw that there was a Trinity. It stood, as it were, apart, against a flaming sky: the Father, Abba; the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

I realized that this was a true family, the real family, the Heavenly Family. And into the midst of this Heavenly Family entered a woman. What great honor – the word is not really honor at all. It is beyond all honor: this woman who was the Daughter of the Father, the Mother of the Son, and the Spouse of the Holy Spirit, shone with the radiance of all Three.

It is miraculous. It is incredible. But it is the reality of truth. Man becomes one when his family is one with the family of God. When he worships and loves God and understands the connection between the Trinity and Our Lady of the Trinity and himself and his family, the restoration of the family can begin to take place. The link is God our Father, Mary our Mother, and Jesus our Brother, all of them speaking through the Holy Spirit…

Slowly, quietly, I entered into one mystery after another: the young woman who heard the voice of an angel say, “Hail Mary, full of grace,” the woman who remained where she was – laundering, cleaning, keeping house.
