I Saw Jesus’ Face

holyfacejesusThe Lord Jesus Christ is close to us – waiting for us to call upon Him. Last night, I woke up and remembered that I wanted to go to the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass this morning especially since it is Friday. Soon after, I began to experience a terrible temptation. I called on Jesus to help me, because I felt too weak to blot out the images that seemed to be forced into my mind. I called again and then I saw His Face. He showed me His Face. At once, the temptation subsided, and I saw Him. He was stern-looking at first, but then smiled and was very pleasant. He has long brown hair, a closely-trimmed beard and mustache, young, and perfect – with wonderful, comforting eyes which are unique in all of the world. I am thankful for this gift. Somehow He is very close, yet hidden. He is near, yet far, and approaching.
