Eucharistic Experience  

25TH MARCH, 1978

Easter Saturday night

About eleven o’clock p.m. I went to sleep. After having said some prayers, I had the following experience.

I was walking in Jerusalem (I was told inwardly) among a busy crowd of all kinds of people. They seemed to be in a hurry. Sud­denly, I saw a Person going ahead of me. He was dressed in a white robe and “the Light” was around Him. Looking over His shoulder He said to me:

“Come and follow Me.”

We walked through several narrow streets, going up and down, and finally arrived at a low wall, in which there was an entrance, a kind of gate. But there was no door in it. The “Radiant Person” said to me:

“It still is the twenty-fifth of March. Wait here for Me.”

He went through the gateway and I remained waiting. Yet I cast a glance inside and said inwardly: “Ah, this is a Garden,” for I saw all sorts of pointed green trees and other Oriental vegetation.

While I was still waiting, the same “Radiant Person” suddenly came back through the little gate. He was carrying a peculiar type of dish in His hands and said to me:

“/ give you the living Pascha.”

I knelt down and folded my hands, and I got a Sacred Host on my tongue. It began to move and to live. Then He spoke:

“/ give you the living Water.”

I took a sip from the little dish that was held before me and I tasted liquids of such an extraordinary sweet flavour as it is diffi­cult to describe.

The “Radiant Person” went back inside and left me alone in ineffable bliss.

Then everything faded away.

I looked at my alarm-clock, it was exactly 5 minutes to twelve. Almost midnight.
