Chapter 28 - Cyrenius recognizes his daughters. Risa and Zinka become the sons-in-law of Cyrenius.

28,1. Says Cyrenius: “Just a little patience, my dearest children and daughters! - Your name is Gamiela, and what is the name of your younger sister?”

28,2. The younger one responds: “My name is Ida; that is how I was always called.”

28,3. At that point Cyrenius embraced Me and said: “Lord, how then should I thank You?! O God and Father! In this way you have given me back my two very dear daughters, who were kidnapped from me by intruders seventeen years ago! How this was possible despite the guards in my house, is still a mystery to me!

28,4. I immediately sent out searchers in all directions to look for and ask for news of the lost sisters and a courageous captain said to me: ‘Even if Pluto has stolen them from you, I will bring them back to you! But if the sea has devoured them or some predatory animal, then all my efforts will be in vain!’ He went to search but was unsuccessful and gave up after three years.

28,5. I also sent searchers to You, Lord, to Nazareth. They asked about you, but returned home with the bad news, that nothing was known about You any more. You were said to be a very calm but otherwise absolutely stupid boy aged between thirteen and fourteen and there was already no talk of prophesies!

28,6. Your earthly parents gave a very tiresome report about You, saying that in Your twelfth year any sign of any wisdom had completely gone up in smoke and that You were inferior in understanding and insight to every other normal earthly boy. They urged You for my sake, to make a prophecy for once to give to my messengers, but You kept quiet and said in the end something to the effect that You had not come into this world to prophesy, but to work like any other person!

28,7. When You were asked, if You could remember everything You had achieved from the cradle to your twelfth year, You said, that what there had been was no more! When You were asked for the reason, you did not answer but left the room and went outside, - and my messengers returned home empty-handed!

28,8. So all my searching was in vain. For seven long years I mourned the loss of my two very dear daughters - and look, here they are now! At that time You kept them from me, in order to give them back to me in a doubly wonderful manner! Yes, Lord, how should I actually thank You for that?”

28,9. I said: “You have already done this by taking care of all those who were caught up here and you yourself have taken the trouble yourself to make arrangements for their accommodation and for their future purpose in life, greatly improved over that which they had experienced before! In short, - you, My best friend Cyrenius, have already done so many things for Me that I can not let you be unrewarded on this earth! One day in My kingdom in heaven, however, you will also receive an even greater reward!

28,10. Since you have your daughters back in a completely healthy state, think of the two to whom I have given your daughters in marriage! The two men are not of royal parentage but they are now in a certain way My sons and this should also suffice for you!”

28,11. Cyrenius saya: “Lord, Your will is a very pleasurable request for me, and for my two sons-in-law I will surely find ways and means by virtue of which they be will in a position where they can be most useful to poor people whether spiritually or physically!

28,12. Please now come to me my dearest daughters and let me hold you to my heart since I am now one of the happiest fathers in the whole world! How happy your mother will be to be reunited with you since she was disconsolate about you! If she could also see you, her happiness would be even greater; but although she is most lovable she is nevertheless blind. She was blind when she became my wife, then she recovered her eyesight for a while, but later on became blind again! However her senses are very sharp and I am prepared to wager that she will recognize you immediately. Oh, how infinitely happy I am now! Come here, all you poor people, I want to make you happy with all my strength!

28,13. To think how we found you floating in the sea, tied together by the hair! If at that time I had only had the faintest idea that you were my daughters, how terribly unhappy the sight of you would have made me! Only now, after you have been brought to life again, did the Lord allow me to know who you were, so that I would be fulfilled as much as possible! And now I am in that state and therefore to You, Lord, I offer all praise and all my love!”
