Transitus and Feast of Blessed Mary of the Passion    versione testuale

14th and 15th of November
This long exile was nearing its end, the longing of her heart was drawing heaven to her.

"How good God is when He shows Himself to a soul! 
No, in dying I could never be afraid of Him, I love Him too much. 
Everything that comes to me from Him I shall welcome with gratitude."

But it was not death that Mother Mary of the Passion saw approaching,
it was love that was sweeping down upon her soul like a vulture to carry it off,
enraptured, caught up in joy, in a breath of purity and stainless truth.1
Mary of the Passion went home to Our Father on 15th November 1904.
