About two years before her death, Queen Victoria visited an elderly God-fearing lady who was in her one hundred and fifth year and preoccupied with her salvation and the life thereafter. The lady greeted the queen very warmly and said, “Your Majesty, may I ask you one question?”
The Queen replied, “Sure, you may ask anything you want.”
The lady then said in a calm voice, “Will we meet in heaven?”
Grant me the real longing to instil in every soul the desire to enjoy everlasting life.
Grant me not to be preoccupied with transient occurrences,
Rather with the salvation of all,
Till we all meet in the heavenly home that You prepared for us.
The Plant of Life
