April 16, 2004(Rosary at Mary’s Knoll.) Because Pat was still healing from her first hip transplant it would have been a physical risk for her to go into one of the previous intense modes of message reception. First received in private, this message was quietly given visually only to her. It was given in a manner that after the message had originally ended the recipient was allowed to repeat un-interrupted what she experienced and it was then recorded. Of interest, the week before, on Good Friday and prior to starting the evening Rosary of the 16th, both prayer leaders emphasized slow and personal intensity of ones prayers to God and Our Lady. Please pray to the Holy Spirit and discern it’s meaning to you.(Recipient) Tonight as we were praying the rosary, the Blessed Mother presented me with a glass of wine. She asked me to smell the wine and I said it had a strong aroma. She corrected me and said that it was the bouquet and then the taste of the wine was very strong and she said, this was the body of the wine. Then She showed me a large table and around the table were numerous glasses to be filled with wine. I had but one glass, the glass She showed me. I took the glass and I poured a drop or two into each of the glasses that were on the table and She said that the Master of the House requires that the glasses be filled. The only thing there on the table was water. I took the water and I poured it into each glass, filling the glass as She had asked.She told me that now the wine had become diluted. There was no bouquet. It had lost its body. She said this in reference to prayer. When we do not pray with the heart, when we have become side tracked by the anxieties of the world and all the temptations which it holds, our prayer life suffers because we take time to pray only when it is convenient and only in the manner which we choose, not that which is most pleasing to God. When we pray with the heart, a true sincere prayer, we have the body of the wine as well as the fragrant bouquet and this all rises to the Throne of God and becomes a pleasing offering to Him. An offering in which He hears the cries of our hearts and the intensity of our prayers, which are so pleasing that He hears with the heart of a Father, that melts as He answers the prayers of His children.We must remember that at all times when we speak to God, we must speak with the heart and not just words but a heart that rings true and clear. A heart that is filled with an aroma, a bouquet and a full body of taste that pleases our Lord. All these things we can accomplish when we stay focused on God and we relinquish the ways of the world. Temptation is always there, but remember the glass. The glass must be filled as the Master has said. It must be filled with our true contrition ... our true desire to please by serving the Will of the Father. When we relinquish our will and seek only the Will of the Father, the glass becomes filled. The glass is prayer ... a powerful prayer...an aromatic prayer ...... a prayer of the body (heart) with a taste most pleasing to God.
