In “Venice,” Monica is assigned to Annie Doyle. Annie is a bitter elderly woman who is slowly going blind. Annie denies her vision problem and remains bitter towards Monica until the Irish angel reveals her reason for wanting to assist her.
It’s not until Annie is completely blind, does she see things for the first time.
I LOVE this episode because I could relate to Annie. While I have a positive attitude and outlook when it comes to my own visual impairment, there may come a day when I wake up completely blind as well. But unlike Annie, I’m a friendly and easy going person most of the time.
But even though that prospect scares me, it also comforts me. The reason is, the day it happens if it happens, I will truly be able to see the world in all the beauty God created it to be. I’ll see it with my heart, just like I have for most of my life. But only it will be ten times more beautiful.
Monica’s revelation touched me beyond words in that episode. It touched me so much, I started crying.
When Monica reveals herself to Annie, she tells her she, Monica, had God’s plan all wrong. Monica tells Annie that God didn’t send Monica there because Annie’s eye sight was dying. He sent the Irish angel there because the sight in her heart was dying.
When Monica got to that part of her revelation, I started crying and I said it along with her. I felt this overwhelming sense of joy and gratefulness towards Roma, who plays Monica. She really touched my heart through Monica’s words.
