Anonymous 197An entity that appears to Anonymous 25 in the form of a beautiful young man wearing "a long white robe." Anonymous 25 had been praying by her bed when suddenly "the chamber shined as bright within, as if it had beene sun-shine [...] and spake vnto her with a soft and sweet voyce, saying, Arise in the name of God, and placed her on a chayre." After this visitation, Anonymous 25 fell to the ground and "recouered her spirits." Wherefore, behold what an vnexpected reliefe was sent vnto her: For this present yeare, 1619 the 28. of August last, at night betweene eleauen and twelue a clocke, according to her accustomed maner, she poured out earnest prayers vnto God, her hands stretched out vnto heauen, (for shee had no vse of her knees,) saying, (as her selfe afterwards confessed before great multitudes) Thou God all-sufficient, that both canst and wilt deliuer thine owne, according to thy pleasure, loose me from this earthly tabernacle. Lying thus lifting vp her hart vnto God in effectuall prayer, loe, sodainly the chamber shined as bright within, as if it had beene sun-shine, and shee thought shee saw before her bed, a yongman in a long white robe, who tooke her by the right hand, lifted her vp kindly vp, and spake vnto her with a soft and sweet voyce, saying, Arise in the name of God, and placed her on a chayre hard by, taking her with his right hand, by the pulse of her right arme, looking alwayes smilingly vpon her, whose long shining robe hung very low, and couered the ground: and the more shee looked vpon him, the more beautifull, faire and comely he seemed to bee, yet within a quarter of an houre, the chamber lost all the brightnesse, and the yongman vanished away from her. Wherefore the Mayd after a loud shrike fell in a sound, which noyse when her mother heard, she came out her bed greatly agast, and finding her daughter lying vpon the ground was exceedingly amazed: and after her daughter had recouered her spirits, asked how shee came to that place, who with all reuerence told her parents what had hapned vnto her.
