Mother Mary and my uncle

Welcome back to my daily blogs everyone. I'm so very glad to have you back today. In this blog, you'll notice quite the journey my uncle went through. However, one thing we can learn from him is to have the type of faith, courage and strength that he possessed.

A long time ago, my uncle was in the war. He went through a very tough battle. Thanks be to God that he is still alive today. If you meet him, he's the happiest man in the world. Where there's evil, he brings good. Where there's war, he makes peace. He always laughs and jokes around and is a very special man. He is one of a kind.

While he was in the war, he got captured. My uncle had to endure eleven years underground and didn't get a chance to see the light. He was what they call, a "prisoner of war." This wasn't for a few days, or a few months, or a few years...this was for eleven years!

During his time in the prison, he was awaiting his turn to get executed. The country that captured him said, "You are going to convert to Islam or else we will decapitate you." My uncle responded, "I will never convert to Islam, I am a Christian. I was born a Christian and I will die a Christian." The country became angry because he would not convert, so they said to him that he will die within a few days if he doesn't convert. In other words, they gave him his time to think about it. Nothing would change his mind.

On the night before he was supposed to be executed, he was lying down and praying. Suddenly, he saw a blue light that turned into the most blessed Virgin Mary. He was overwhelmed by what he was seeing. Mother Mary showed him his children, how tall they have grown and how they look. He was glad to see it. At the end of her visit to my uncle, she said, "You will not die tomorrow. I will take you out." and she left.

My uncle remained in strong faith and hope. He believed wholeheartedly that on the next day he would not die.

The next day came, and early in the morning, all the prisoners were woken up. A big general had arrived to select a prisoner he wanted to transport out of their care. All the prisoners were lined up, and the general was looking at each one of them. Then, he took his stick and pointed it to my uncle and said, "You. What's your name?" He answered him with his name. The general said, "I want to release you." And my uncle was released from that prison and was set free.

That's the story of my uncle, and how our dear and most blessed Mother Mary rescued him in his most in need moment.

Friends, we must have the strong faith that we have heard about today. Let us never fear anyone, except for the Lord. We can never let evil get to us. Why should we listen do what is evil and follow it? Let us listen and obey to the Lord our God who loves us greatly and seeks what is best for us.

My uncle held on to his faith and didn't convert to Islam. Because of this, through the intercession of Mother Mary, he was set free. He was supposed to be executed, but he was saved. This goes to show that we, who don't have such trials like this, must remain even stronger. We are not being confronted by this type of force approach. If ever we face difficulties in life, let us depend solely on the Lord, and no one else to save us from our troubles.

I am excited to share my spiritual life lessons with all of you. I thank you sincerely for joining me on this journey. I will be sharing every spiritual lesson I've learned in my life, every story of my father's life, every spiritual dream I had that came true, absolutely everything!
