Her Name is music to the ear, sweet sounding, soothing
I recently read a story about an eleven year old girl who didn't believe in God and had parents were atheists. She heard a young girl pray the Hail Mary and pondered the prayer. She remembered the first half of the prayer and said it every night. Two years later her family when to France on a family trip. They decided to visit the Pyrenees and came upon the Grotto of Lourdes and watched a procession of bishops and priests and lay people. When the thirteen year old girl asked the parents what they were doing the parents explained to her that the people were just pretending and then they began to mock them. But then a remarkable moment happened! The teenage girl heard them praying the Hail Mary! And the grace of God flooded her soul and changed her heart! Consolation and love filled her soul and she was converted. Today she is a Carmelite Nun and ever grateful for that grace-filled encounter. Praise the Lord!
