The eleventh Revelation is an hey gostly shewing of His Moder. Twenty-fifth chapter.
In this joy my Lord looked Down
where our Lady had stood by the cross.
asking, ‘would you see her?’
And in this same manner of mirth and joy,
our good Lord looked down to the right-hand side,
reminding me where our Lady stood
in the time of His passion,
Wilt you see her?
And in this sweet word, as if He had said,
“I know well you would see my blessed mother,
for after me she is the highest joy
that I can shew you,
most delightful and worshipful to me,
and the most desired to be seen
of all my blessed creatures.”
And for the high, marvellous, special love
that He has to this sweet maiden,
His blessed mother our Lady Saint Mary,
He showed her highly enjoying
as by the meaning of these sweet words,
as if He said,
“Will you see how I love her
that thou may joy with me
in the love that I have in her
and she in me?”
For this sweet word’s greater understanding
our Lord God speaks to all mankind that shall be saved,
as if it were all to one person,
as if He said,
“Will you see in her how you are loved?
For love of you I made her so high,
so noble, and so worthy,
and this delights me,
as I would that it does thee.”
For after Himself, she is the most blissful sight.
I was told not to desire to see
her bodily presence while I am here,
but the virtues of her blessed soul,
her truth, her wisdom and her love,
whereby I may learn to know myself
and reverently revere my God.
And when our good Lord had shown this, and said,
Wilt thou seen her?
I answered saying,
“Yes, good Lord, thank you;
yes, good Lord,
if it is your will.”
I had often asked this
wishing to see her bodily presence,
but I saw her not so.
Jesus gave me a view of her spirit.
Just as I had seen her before,
little and simple,
so He showed her then high and noble,
glorious and pleasing to Him
above all creatures;
and He wishes it known
that all those that delight in Him
should delight in her
and in the delight He has in her
and she in Him.
For more understanding He showed this example:
if a man loves one creature above all creatures,
he wishes all creatures to love and delight
in that creature he loves so much.
And in this that Jesus said,
Wilt thou see her?
I thought it the most delightful word
He might have given me of her
with the spiritual showing He gave me of her.
For our Lord showed me no detail
but showed me our Lady Saint Mary three times.
First, as she conceived,
second, in her sorrows under the Cross,
third, as she is now,
in delight, worship, and joy.
