Ι had a cousin, her mind was affected by an illness and suffered. About twenty years later she died. Believe me, I saw her in a vision within the ranks of the angels; together with the angels she sang and praised the Holy Trinity! Do you hear me? With the little patience that she did in her time of sorrow. She could not do much, it was like a paralysis, and she could not even take care of herself. And yet the patience she showed in this situation and look what she received from God as a reward! She was with the Angelic orders! So much glory! She sang to the Holy Trinity with the angels.
