The Daughter of Zion appears cast down, like Christ, in Gethsemane, but not for that reason failed or sunk, no! The Father sustains her with the power of his arm, because her royal Head is his very beloved Son with whom He is well pleased.
The Virgin did not have any tendency, nor desire, nor strain, nor inclination which attracted Her to earth. Mary lived as though assumed throughout her whole pilgrimage, concluding her assumption in the embrace of the encounter with the Infinite.
Silence…! for the Lady feels that Her whole soul smoothly and peacefully flames in the savoury, mysterious and infinitely immutable heat of the divine kiss of the Immutability by essence in a Trinitarian act...
And almost without perceiving it… without being aware… without noticing anything…the Lady finds Herself, in a delightful… smooth and silent… twinkling of an eye…before that God whom She contemplated and possessed during Her whole life; but now, having been attained, the degree of divinisation determined by God Himself, She is snatched and introduced into the nuptial chamber, to have in the Homeland the same that She had in the exile, but in a total, joyful and absolute possession of Eternity.
Tomorrow, no later! with God forever... What sweet encounter...! And “there,” looking upon Him in His Sight, singing Him in His Mouth and loving Him in His Fire... Time is over and the end has come, Eternity has begun...! Face to face with God, adoring the Being in His being and in His persons, for His being who He is and for His way of so being; in an act of pure love that rejoices in God’s essential joy, forever...! And this will be tomorrow!
