I am really looking forward to the Life of Our Lady, written by Viska and dictated by Our Lady at Medugorje. The Mysteries are a bit like boiled sweets we can eat them all our lives, maybe for all Eternity and never get them finished. Sometimes in prayer I see new things gain new insights and am left wondering...how come all those years meditating on this event you didn't see something so obvious?..and am left wondering. Our Lady has a name in the Litany, 'Garden enclosed' and the Mysteries point to this and are like little windows into the Garden of Mary's life for scripture teaches us so little and yet by prayer and mediation so much. One thing I have always wondered about are the words of Gabriel to Mary, But when she saw him, she was greatly troubled at the saying, and considered what kind of salutation this might be. 30The angel said to her, “Don’t be afraid, Mary, for you have found favor with God. 3 The immediate instinct is to think that Mary was put out by an angel suddenly turning up in the family home, but the text shows that Mary was . greatly troubled at the saying What saying? Well the Illustrious greeting: “Rejoice, you highly favored one! The Lord is with you. Blessed are you among women!” Why troubled? Because Mary was a garden enclosed, full of humility and following the pilgrim path of prayer in hiddeness and now Gabriel one of the seven great spirits, the angel of power, the messenger of God heaping praise on her shoulders. The gates of the enclosed garden is bust wide open as it were and things are seen from the eye of heaven. It seems to me that the children of Mary too , in their spirituality and path of prayer are a Garden Enclosed. Its a bit like climbing a mountain shrouded in mist, there are so many things, so many workings of the Holy Spirit working in our lives we cannot understand. When the winds of heaven blow and the mists life for a while we can be really humbled by how can has worked in our lives and troubled too . For there is a great joy in hiddeness and secrecy and to see the great gifts of grace the good Lord heaps on our little shoulders can be humbling. Jesus compares the Kingdom of God, which lies within as like a yeast growing within. So we are like a wine maturing in the image of Christ down the years. For God does not want us to be good, He wants us to be God. These are mysteries of the King, a marvel in our eyes.
