Rosa Maria Wynn — a Life Dedicated to ACIM

by Rev. Johannes Hartog, O.M.C.

Rev. Johannes HartogThe principal translator of ACIM into Spanish, Rosa Maria Wynn started her mission in 1983, completing the translation in 1993. Rosa Maria dedicated her life and all her resources to spreading A Course in Miracles to the world.

I met Rosa Maria in 1993. It was the first workshop on ACIM she had presented, in Spanish, in Puerto Rico. At that time I was a student of ACIM in nearly daily classes facilitated by Annie Arbona (today Aishmal).

One day, Aishmal told us about that workshop. I didn’t think much about it, being perfectly satisfied with Aishmal’s class. That night, I dreamed that my mother (who had recently made her transition) told me to wake up and to write down “Aurora Group”; she said in my dream that I was not going to remember these words the next day if I didn’t make a written note. When I ignored that suggestion, I awoke again with the same instruction from her: write down “Aurora Group.” Sleepily, this second time, I did so. The phrase meant nothing to me.
That very morning during the ACIM class Aishmal gave us a flyer that read: “Aurora Group presents Rosa Maria Wynn…” I had no doubts that my beloved mother was guiding me to go to the workshop. It transformed my life.

Rosa Maria became like a second mother to me. I went with her to workshops in Spain, Mexico, Miami and Puerto Rico. We wrote letters to each other, talked by phone, laughed together. I believed our relationship, evolved into a holy one.

On February 8, 2017 my beloved mentor/friend/mother/sister made her transition. In the weeks that preceded her death, cancer had left her body weak and confined her to bed for months. Among the things she told me during this painful time was: “God is real. The beauty of the spiritual realm is indescribable. I was with the Master Jesus; He told me that when I left my body, He is going to receive me. I will be with him forever.”

“And how was your experience with Him? “I asked. “The power that He emanates is so immense; beyond comprehension. We think that we are spiritually advanced but, compared with Jesus we are not even close.” Her words made me smile because several years ago I encountered Jesus and had the same experience: The power He emanates is indescribable.

Rosa continued talking: “We have so much help; there are so many Ascendant Masters guiding us, taking care of us, loving us. I wish everybody were aware of this.”

This past January 29 my husband and I visited her at her home in California. She was HAPPY and in total PEACE, even though she didn’t feel well and had to be taken to the hospital. She didn’t allow anybody to move her until Jack and I arrived. “We can visit you at the hospital,” I told her by phone on our way to her house (we had been delayed by stalled traffic). “No,” she responded, “I need to talk to you and will not go to the hospital until I see you.”

Finally, we got to her house. What Jack and I witnessed is difficult to describe. Although her body was fragile (she probably didn’t weigh 60 pounds), her eyes and face shined with joy and beauty. There was no logic to what was going on. How can one so ill, whose body is wracked by cancer, radiate so much light, love, joy…? Humanly incomprehensible.

“Johannys, are you aware of how light and sublime this room feels?” my husband quietly asked. I sat down on her bed and took her hands. “Do you feel my hands”? I asked Rosa. “No” she told me. “I don’t feel my body.” She paused, took a deep and soft breath and continued talking. “I am ready to go. I fulfilled my mission and the Master Jesus told me that I would be with Him forever. I’m happy mama (as she lovingly called her closest friends). I am leaving with a smile on my lips and in my heart.”

At that moment she asked my husband to come and hug me. She blessed us and our relationship, inviting us to commit ourselves to a holy relationship. With her blessing, Jack and I re-committed ourselves to it.

“We will meet again; you will go where I go, but not yet. You have a mission to fulfill and you cannot leave yet.” She then looked lovingly into my eyes and asked me: “Now bless me and pray for me.” She closed her eyes and, full of gratitude, with all the love I am capable of, I blessed her and prayed for her.

Overwhelmed with love, looking into her eyes with tears in mine, and taking her hands I said goodbye.

Let us pause to thank Rosa María Wynn, translator into Spanish of UCDM, for her contribution to the awakening of humanity. Let us celebrate her return Home!
