I Felt Prompted To Share With Fr. Vincent O’Malley The Events of May 13, 2006
Tuesday December 5, 2006
It amazes me how a past event that I have already written about suddenly resurfaces months, sometimes even years later (as was the case with the picture of Our Lady that wept tears back in 2000) and continues to solidify the apparitions of Our Lady here in Emmitsburg.
It seems to me after having experienced all I have experienced that Our Lady is so perfectly aware of every word I have written in these papers that She knows them and understands them in ways I will never be able to. I have never claimed to understand the events I have written about.
Sometimes Our Lady suddenly and unexpectedly refers back to something that has already happened and been written about and picks up where She left off months earlier. I had no intention of sending Fr. Vincent O’Malley the paper describing the events of May 13, 2006 which was the day Our Lady appeared to Gianna in our living room until this happened:
I left the house this morning to go to work and drove straight to the Basilica to go to the 7AM mass. I was running a little behind so I did not stop at St. Joseph’s like I usually do but when I passed St. Joseph’s the odometer was 1.3. I arrived at the Basilica for mass and Fr. Steve was the priest. Mass ended and I got in my car to leave. When I started it the time on the dash was 7:33 and the CD flashed 13.
I drove to work in Manassas and just at the instant I arrived at All Saint’s a car pulled in front of me with the license plate of 33. At that instant I thought about the Eucharist in the Tabernacle and noticed the CD flash 13. I recorded this event on my voice recorder and at the instant I finished the CD flashed 333.
Later in the afternoon I took my lunch break and ran some errands that I needed to do. I got my oil changed and made a few other stops. On my way back I stopped by All Saint’s to pray my daily rosary and just as the car came to a complete stop the CD flashed 13. I glanced at my watch as I walked in the chapel and it said XX:XX:33. I prayed the Sorrowful mysteries and the Chaplet of Divine Mercy. I finished my prayers and left to go back to work. I glanced at my watch and it said XX:XX:33. I pulled out of the parking lot go back to work and the time on the dash was 1:13.
I returned to work and became extremely busy. It was like the flood gates had been opened. I ended up working much later in the evening than usual. My co-worker and I got everything done except for one thing and he suggested that I leave because he could finish that last thing. When he said I could go I looked at my watch and the time was 6:13.
While I was driving back to Emmitsburg I had a sudden thought crash through my mind that was so crystal clear that I knew I needed to do it. The thought was that Our Lady wanted me to send Fr. O’Malley just the one paper that describes the day She appeared to Gianna in our living room on May 13th along with a Christmas card. At the instant this crashed through my mind a car went whizzing past with the license plate of 33 and I instantly passed the mileage marker 13.
I arrived at St. Joseph’s and just as the car came to a complete stop I glanced at my watch and it said XX:XX:13. I had the sudden desire to pray the rosary for Fr. O’Malley. I got out of the car and looked at my watch as I kissed the corner of the church and started to pray the rosary as I walked around the church and the time was 8:13:13. I completed the Glorious mysteries of the rosary and when I finished I got back in my car to leave and when I started it the time on the dash was 8:33.R_____ C___
