What victory is this, that all suffering that we suffer now will pass away, and every tear, every pain along with every joy, and shout of praise will bring to fruition the fulfillment of the Kingdom of God.
I have seen the victory, and it is wondrous.
In a moment at God's will I was shown the end. When hell and death are thrown into the pit, it will all be understood as perfection by every soul that is in eternity. There will be no questioning at the end, even if someone we knew and loved on Earth is to suffer the second death, we will agree that God's judgement is perfect. With one shout all the souls in heaven and the angels will exclaim, "The will of God is perfect, the justice of God is perfect, praise be the will and justice of God!"
Then I saw the Son of Man standing in a white robe with a golden sash, and He was standing next to His Mother who was in a blue garment with a white veil on her head. A sash was tied high on her waist. The Lord put His left hand on His Mother's back and with His right hand swept it around indicating what was happening. He said to her, "Oh Mother...the Victory".
Who would be the one human being ever born that our Lord would want to share this victory with? Wouldn't it be His Mother? This is why Our Lady of Fatima said "In the end, My Immaculate Heart will triumph." God is giving he this triumph, because of her humility, obedience and love. What she says is truth what God has shared with her. Her Immaculate Heart will triumph, not because Mary wills it, but because God wills it and she always speaks the will of God. If God desires to give you victory, what measure of victory would He give his own Mother?
In this moment I knew that every tear, every pain, every suffering that was allowed to be would ultimately lead to His perfection. In the end, every tear and suffering will be wiped away because it will have met its perfection in eternity.
We are perfected in this life by not complaining, submitting in all love and obedience, and offering all suffering for the salvation of others. When we ask out of love for another that God save souls, seeking nothing for self, mercy is given to others and God changes the world. The mystery is that the crumbs of mercy fall from our Master's table for us so that we too may know the joy of heaven.

And it is.
"...This is my blood."
And it is.
It is His body and His blood, He is truly present.
How can I describe what this feels like to be present when the Priest sets down the Eucharist on the altar after this moment. .
If one could be in the center of a galaxy when it is being created, this is it.
The power of God that is present is terrifying. How can I describe it. He IS Holy. The fear of my death comes to me, because the Holy God is present, I can feel His power not only over the universe but over my next heartbeat. I begin to pray trembling, "Holy God, Holy Mighty One, Holy Immortal One, have mercy on us and on the whole world." I know why the Jews didn't want to go into the tent where God was, for in the presence of a Holy God, you realize how much dust you are.
We are all in the presence of God now.
How could anyone dare to be in the presence of the Holy God and still live.
Then the second miracle of the Holy Mass begins.
Yet still feeling His power, we experience His love and mercy for us when we take Communion and take His Body and Blood into ourselves.
It is evidence of God's mercy that we do not die instantly when we partake of our Lord's Holy Body and Blood at Mass.
This is the second miracle of the Holy Mass. God loving us by giving us His very self to us, and protecting us from a physical death by the offering of the Priest of not only himself to God for us, but also offering the precious body and blood of our Lord Jesus back to God for us.
You went to Holy Mass and your Priest just saved your life, and you didn't even know it.
