Look at that beauty." The friend looked but saw nothing. Magdalene was the only privileged one to see the splendor of a lady dressed in white, with a golden tiara in her hair, close to the bed. Magdalene trembled and knew that she had received a visit of the Blessed Virgin Mary! The Madonna moved her lips softly and said, "My daughter, now you are healed!" And then she disappeared.
