You know, you've often seen a pic? ture of our Lord. (Yes.) And he changed then. And I could see the children around the altar • angels around the altar.

Annual Antigonish Diocesan Pilgrimage to Ste. Anne de Beaupri by train, led by Mr. Gillis, would go by our farm on the way to the shrine. We as children would run to the railroad to wave to the pilgrims. I would wish I was one of them and won? der why we couldn 't go, until Mother told us they couldn't af? ford the trip. (So that, what we see are images that we commonly see: God's face is very much as you've seen it in paintings.) Yes. (And Jesus very much as we've seen it depicted in other places.) M-hm....

(That was a vision.) Yes, that was a vision. That was definitely a vision. (And had you had other visions in Cape Breton?) Kay laughs. Yes, in a way, but I don't want to say it in case • think I'm nuts! (Of course people will think you're nuts!...) Laughter. But people, I don't know, they don't want to believe.

The trustees asked me if I would teach the term. I said yes. But I had to get permis? sion from the Inspector be? cause married teachers were not allowed to teach. Permis? sion was granted. I taught the term 1941- 42. In June, we bought a farm in Beaver Cove. It was situated near Camp Beaver. May 1942, I was pregnant. I started to he? morrhage while I was teaching. I went home at recess; went to my room and prayed to Ste. Anne. Everything stopped. I went back to finish the day. In July I went to Ste. Anne de Beaupr6 with two sisters-in-law. This was my first trip to Ste. Anne's. While growing up, the While in the church store (at Ste. Anne's), I started to he? morrhage again. I sat in a chair. He noticed me and asked what was wrong. I no? ticed a Ste. Anne's mater? nity cord on one of the counters. I said, "Get me the cord and have it blest and touched to the relic of Ste. Anne." When she returned I put it on. Suddenly, everything stopped. I wore the cord until he was born. Both sisters-in-law were also cured after they arrived home. When it came time for my confinement, I stayed with a relative in Sydney. Mick was in the army barracks at South Bar. He came to see me January 5th and said that he couldn't see me January 6th because he had to serve dinner to head army officials. 'tBBEl'l V. J.
