The Visitation

Before she came to Canada, she had a dream of a lady with a blue veil. 
After leaving her country she dreamt of the lady again. 
In her dream the lady came with an open arm, embraced her and her children. 
The woman who dreams of the lady finds solace in front of the grotto at Our Lady of Mercy Parish church. 
She comes early in the morning to sit in front of the lady as if the lady called her to come to visit. When she is worried about family members still living in Syria, here she sits. Just by sitting in front of the lady she feels much better. 
The woman is a Muslim.
OLMOur Lady of Mercy used to be a little house on a prairie. It was the very first church I visited when we arrived in Canada. I lived a few blocks away from the church. Now, it was rebuilt to accommodate more people and the grotto is a new addition.
