The Sweet Smell

One night, a woman has something weighing on her mind very heavily. She went to confession and prayed that it would be a good one. It was. She came out feeling no longer sick, but healthy.

Then, she knelt in a quiet and dark chapel, before the Lord in Eucharistic adoration. She quickly sensed a strong smell of flowers. It caused her to open her eyes and look around. She looked behind her and in back of the altar. She found nothing. Then she happened to move closer to the Eucharist itself and noticed the smell was stronger. The realization struck her that it was the Eucharist itself that was the source of the sweet smell.
