Our Lady led me to Altoetting !

by Philip Cheung
(Toronto)

The Holy Spirit works in very mysterious ways. I graduated from university with a Masters degree in engineering. Got my first job. Bought my first house, and for the first time I owned my own television. So, one morning I switched on the TV to watch breakfast news before going to work. Somehow the pomp and pageantry of the procession of Our Lady of Loretto (Italy) came on. I took it as a beckon from Our Lady to take a pilgrimage to Loretto (also visited by Saint Therese the Little Flower and Pope St. John the 23rd).

Met Herman-the-German on my flight to Italy. Herman invited me to stay with his family in Bad Wiessee (south of Munich) the following Christmas. I did. Being both Catholics he showed me the town of Altoetting, and told me the whole historical story, which I never knew before. I prayed for 1 hour at the shrine.

That Christmas, at night, Altoetting was absolutely beautiful. It was like a movie set of a Christmas story, but it was REAL. I can never forget it.

I keep telling this extraordinary chain of events to my family and friends. They never failed to show amazement. (Incidentally, my German friends from Berlin have not heard of Altoetting. I must educate them).

Psalms 126:3 is very appropriate in summing up my experience. "The LORD has done great things for us; Oh, how happy we were!".

AMEN!
