On December 7, 2004 almost about midnight; I and about 300 people witnessed the apparition of our dear Mother Mary in Tagaytay,Philippines, now called the Mt. of Salvation. While only Emma,the visionary could see her and speak with her all the rest of us witnessed were glitters of different colors coming from above where Emma was kneeling. All I could do was look at the glitters and then I started smelling a very sweet scent around. I kept on thinking that it was the lady in front of me that smelled really good but after moving around that night I still smelled the wonderful scent around me. Finally, after the apparition we all had to go home. On our way home I could still savor the smell and again I thought that it was one of the girls with me who smelled so good.I decided to stay for the night at my friends house as it was almost 4:00AM when we reached her house. I slept in her couch that night and before I fell asleep I again smelled the very sweet scent in the home of my friend.When my friend woke up the next day I asked her right away what scent she uses as I was determined to get the same scent for myself.It was a kind of scent that you savor and look for after.My friend insisted that she did not use any cologne nor perfume yet that day.We went to mass after that and the scent continued to be there around me.After the mass I finally went home and smelled the scent one more time just as I was about to enter our main door.
It was only after about 3 days when one of my companions during the apparition called me and said we had to meet as she had to show me a picture.We met shortly after and she showed me a photo taken at the apparition site and the photo showed Mama Mary all in white exactly at the place where Emma,the visionary was kneeling down and around her were angels.As I recounted my story of the very sweet scent that day at the site;one of the girl at the apparition site who could see angels said that there were indeed so many angels at the apparition site who came with Mama Mary who were sprinkling those sweet scent.She said that those angels brought us home that night and I was filled with awe as I now realiized that the very sweet scent that I could smell from the site until I got home came from my angel who brought me home.
Some may never see with earthly eyes these heavenly beings or know that they exist. Many are unaware of the numerous ways they have protected and guided us. We would like to share with you the stories of people who take pleasure in expressing how real angels are.
