Let me begin by telling you that three weeks ago I was in no shape, form, or fashion EVER considering becoming a Catholic. I am Jewish by birth and have always held a childish grudge against Christianity in all forms because I was treated poorly in school by many people simply for being Jewish. (I live in a really redneck town...)
About two weeks ago I was laying in bed having racing thoughts, trying to fall asleep. I was beginning to feel suicidal. I was having an anxiety attack. This happens to me frequently. I began praying, hoping to calm down, and then in the corner of the bed by the wall I saw a lady. She had a glowing-quality. She had tan skin and long black hair, and dark green eyes. She was wearing a dark blue robe with stars on it. I asked her who she was and she told me she is the feminine presence of God. I asked why she had never come here before and she just smiled. She talked to me, comforting me, and I fell asleep.
The next day I had no clue what to think.
She came back the next night and talked to me again, and told me she is the Immaculate Mother. The next day I looked up what that was and found out that it usually means the Virgin Mary. I still didn't know what to think so I went to a Mass, and for the first time I felt comfortable in a religious congregation. I found out there were classes for people interested in becoming Catholic, and I figured that would be the best time to talk to a priest about what I saw.
When I showed up, the priest couldn't be there because something had come up. The lesson was being taught by a little lady and the lesson had been changed from "Interpretation of the Bible" to... "The Virgin Mary." I kept my mouth shut but was in shock. We learned to pray the Rosary and afterwards I told several of the ladies there about what I had been seeing.
They didn't think I was crazy like I thought they would.
The Immaculate Mother has continued to visit me at night several times a week. I have discovered that when I sleep with the Rosary around my wrist, I don't have nightmares; this is a major miracle because every night of my life that I remember, I've had horrible nightmares.
It's very odd for all of this to be happening to me. First of all, I'm Jewish, second of all, I'm not some super-great person - I'm an anxious and troubled person. Never the less, I'm glad She has been visiting me.
