Friends of the Rosary:
Three days before dying at the ICU in La Paz Hospital in Madrid on October 28, María Blanca left us a WhatsApp audio file saying: “Be hopeful, everything is all right; we don’t live for ourselves, we live for God.”
Amidst intense suffering, my holy wife had the clarity to understand that God’s given life is eternal. Real joy and happiness are acquired by serving Jesus and Mary.
As faithful dwelling in this valley of tears, we know it, but our senses and feelings keep us grounded in hard earthly reality. We try not to be disconsolate.
My family receives comfort with the belief that Maria Blanca is enjoying the face of Jesus and the Communion of Saints. A close American friend, who is used to praying a lot, told us this week: “Yesterday, we all were praying for Maria Blanca; today, we pray to her.”
Jesus, I Trust In You!
