FACE TO FACE ENCOUNTERS WITH JESUS CHRIST IN 2018
September 29, 2018
It was a mild fall evening around
7:00 pm on September 29, 2018. It was St. Michael’s Feast day. I
parked my car in a parking lot across the street from my
community catholic church. There was no one in sight as far as I
could see, only me - or so I thought. As I turned off the car
ignition I looked to the left and there was a car that appeared
to have just pulled in to park in the spot to the left of me,
although I did not see the car drive in? It was dark and
the only light was coming from the lights in the parking lot.
All I could see in this car was the outline of a tall man with
long hair and a beard. I could not make out his face, although
from what I could tell, he looked like He might be from the
Middle East (strange this is the thought that entered my mind). All of a sudden I became
frightened, as I did not recognize this stranger.
had already started at 7:00 pm and I was late, so there was no
one in sight outside and I was all alone. I was afraid to leave the
safety of my car as I felt this strange feeling about this man
(the word terrorist came to mind). Thoughts started to race
through my mind about this stranger. Did he have intentions to
harm the church perhaps and if so should I warn the church?
Would he bring harm to me? Or was he just a visitor perhaps? Or
was he just using the parking lot and going elsewhere in the
neighbourhood? I was in a real quandary as to what to do.
I briefly looked down at him sitting in the driver's seat
of his small car which was much lower as compared to height
where I was, in the driver's seat of my truck. I could see he was a
large man, with very long legs, that stood out to the point where
I thought he could not possibly be comfortable in there, nor get
out easily. Realizing this,
gave me some confidence in that, I figured that I could get out
of my vehicle faster than he could and into the security of the
Since it was St. Michael’s feast
day, falling on a Saturday vigil
mass that year, I strongly desired to attend, as St Michael is very close to
my heart. I quickly grabbed my purse, locked my car and darted
across the street and up the exterior flight of stairs and into
the church for safety just in case. Once I got inside, I climbed
approximately half way up the interior flight of stairs in the
church foyer and then turned around to look behind me, to see if
the stranger was perhaps coming into the church. I became startled when I
suddenly saw the stranger’s
tall figure through the glass of the full height sidelight
window on the left of the church foyer's entry doors. So I realized he
was not far behind me and was indeed coming into the church. I
quickly continued up the stairs and walked through the second
set of entry doors at the top, turned left, walking
through the aisle that lead to my usual spot in the last pew on
the left side wall of the church and sat down.
Once I was seated I kept my gaze on
the entry doors in suspense, as I was awaiting the entry of the
stranger into the church. All of a sudden, the stranger
walked in and was standing in between the two holy water fonts
that are on either side of the entryway into the church.
I could not believe my eyes! "OMG, it is Jesus!" was my first instinctive reaction and I was in shock! Much to my surprise the
stranger was a tall beautiful, exotic looking young man of
approximately 6 feet tall with silky jet black shoulder length
hair, light olive skin and stunning blue eyes. I figured he must
be in his early thirties as he was quite youthful looking and
there was not one gray hair on his head that I could see! I
noticed he was wearing a pair of blue jeans and a black waist
length leather jacket. I stared at him as he walked in and went down the isle
beside the pew where I was sitting and then sat down in the next
row of pews to my right, in the fourth one from the back. He was
situated at a direct angle to my right such that I had a clear
view of his backside. I realized at a later date that his
position was directly in line with me and the Image of Divine Mercy
that hung above the monstrance along with a photo of St. Faustina.
There were people
in the pew in front of him and to the right side of him, however,
there was no one in the pew behind him. Therefore, I had a very
direct, clear view of him. I looked at him for awhile. I looked
over his thick, silky jet black hair and noticed it was wavy towards
the ends. He had broad shoulders, and very long thick legs with
a solid build. I couldn`t help but to wonder, could
this possibly be Jesus Christ? No way I thought! I must be
deluded! How can this be? It is insane to even think this? As
if I thought? Then I started pondering about the possibility
that it could be Jesus. I thought, Jesus has brown hair and
brown eyes not black hair and blue eyes as that is what I always
thought based on the majority of the pictures of Him. Then I
rationalized, this stranger is just a man, a visitor to the area
or perhaps just a new parishioner. At this point I decided to
get that crazy idea of him being Jesus out of my mind and focus
on the mass.
When it came time
for the collection, I couldn`t help but to watch to see what the
stranger would do. I watched as he put his hand in his left pocket
and pulled out a strangely large handful of change from his left pocket
and dropped it into the collection basket making a very loud "kerplink"
sound. This immediately got my full attention! I thought, perhaps he did
not have a lot of money considering he gave small change versus
bills. Perhaps he was a carpenter came to my mind
(strange how this was what came to mind)? I simply left it at
that and then left for home once the mass was over, without
giving it any further thought.
In fact, once I
arrived home I told my family: you wouldn`t believe who I saw
at church this evening – a man that looked just like Jesus
Christ! I explained to them what had happened and concluded that
the stranger was likely a visitor to the area or perhaps a new
parishioner and that I could possibly see him at church
again next week. I never gave it another thought at that point.
The following week
I attended mass on Saturday October 6, 2018 at 7:00 PM (I later
learned that St. Faustina's feast day was the day before on
October 5). As I
walked into the entrance to the church, I gazed over the usual
pew that I sat in which was still vacant. The pew in front of
this one was also vacant. For some strange reason, I was
in a quandary as to whether to sit in my usual spot in the last
pew or to sit in the second last one. Oddly, I decided to sit
in the second last one.
Just after mass had started, I
was looking towards the entrance way, wondering whether or
not that stranger would show up again. Much to my surprise, the
stranger was there in exactly the same spot he was in the
week before (between the holy water fonts)! It was like a "video" replay of the week before.
Once again, I could not believe my eyes! "OMG it is Jesus Christ!"
was my instinctive reaction and I was in total shock for a
second time! He started
walking towards me and my first thought was, "Oh no he is going to sit
in the pew behind me!" which he did much to my terror!
All of a sudden I
felt this intense fear come over me. My heart was pounding and
I felt myself trembling all over. Practically every thought and
emotion possible flooded my entire being - I was in a state of
utter confusion to say the least. Could this be someone
stalking me? Could this be Jesus Christ? A part of me wanted to
run away and leave the church. Another part of me wanted to
know the identity of this stranger who looked like Jesus. I was
sitting there frozen like a solid block of ice. I felt very
intimidated having this man sitting directly behind me.
Therefore, I scooched myself over to the left so that I was
sitting directly beside the wall next to the pew. This gave me
the ability to turn around to my right and take a closer look at the
stranger behind me.
Despite the intense
fear I had, my curiousity became like a magnet wanting to get a
closer look at him. In fact my curiosity grew to the point
where I could not help myself but to turn around and glance over
my right shoulder to take a sneak peak at him. He was sitting
exactly in the middle of the pew, practically taking up the
whole space, being the very tall, large build man that he was. I
peeked over my shoulder at him several times, taking quick
glances at him hoping that he wouldn’t notice (I find my
behaviour rather comical now, even though I was terrified at the
time!). Every time I
turned around, the stranger was not looking at me. He was
looking at his booklet (mass guide), or looking in another
direction so our eyes never met. He sat there ever so quietly
without making a sound. I did this approximately three or four
times, taking several sneak peeks at him.
I felt the strong desire to
ask him, “what is your name?” A part of me was thinking, that would be insulting considering the possibility that he was Jesus Christ and I did not recognize
Him, my Saviour? Then I thought perhaps I should make an
affirmative statement like: “You are The Christ aren’t you?”
Then I thought this is a crazy idea and this stranger will think
I am crazy too. I felt totally embarassed at just having these
thoughts! Or, if he answered that he was indeed the Christ,
how would I properly acknowledge and give honour and praise to
Him considering the mass going on. This would disrupt the mass
and draw attention to us which is surely not something Christ
would want (it was a strong feeling I had). I was basically in
a state of utter confusion with all these conflicting thoughts
racing through my mind and not knowing what to do. I would have
to say, that I have never in my life experienced such a huge
rush of emotions and thoughts all at the same time, making me
feel like I would explode or die on the spot!
Then, I turned
around again, to take another sneak peak at him. At this point
I truly thought I was going to have a heart attack! My heart
was pounding and racing at the sound of this man's voice as he
had moved his head forward to speak to me (very close to the
back of my neck). He gazed into my
eyes and in a kind, gentle voice asked “Quelle page"
(What page)?” Terrified, I quickly turned around, looked down at my
mass guide and then turned back to him replying “Treize"
(Thirteen). I smiled at
him ever so sheepishly and he responded with a soft serious
smile. Then I
quickly turned around to escape His gaze. Although I did not
realize it at the time, page 13 was the page of “The Liturgy of
By this point,
I had become immensely uncomfortable and fatigued by what had
just transpired. Therefore, I concluded that I must be deluded and that it couldn’t possibly be
Jesus. Why would he appear here of all possible places and
churches - and why to me of all people? I placed my focus back
on the mass as it was soon time for communion. I went to
communion at the back of the church and left without looking
back at the stranger.
When I got home, I once again told my
family what had just happened at church. However, I just
couldn’t get the idea out of my head that the stranger was
indeed Jesus Christ no matter how hard I tried. I walked by our
banister and glanced at the Divine Mercy Image high up on the
wall of our one and a half story foyer. I suddenly realized
for the first time that the stranger at church looked like the
image except he had jet black hair and blue eyes. However, Jesus
in the image appeared to have brown hair and brown eyes. I went
and got a step ladder to take down the image that was high up on
the wall. It was a small 8x10 image and I scrutinized it very
intensely for the first time. At that moment, I made the
connection - the stranger at church was indeed Jesus Christ!
I went on
the internet to look for a Divine Mercy Image (Hyla) in the highest
resolution I could find so I could make a further discernment.
Then I purchased a larger 16" x 20" image which much to my
pleasant surprise, was made in Milan, Italy and the return
address showed it came from a Catholic nun living in the United
States. It is a most
beautiful portrait of Jesus. I believe He wanted me to have this
very specific image.
After careful scrutiny I concluded, yes, without a doubt in my mind, that man was the Beloved, Jesus
Christ! I suddenly felt like Mary Magdalene (she didn't
recognize him at first either) having seen the risen Christ!
flooded my heart and soulI I came to understand His love for me who am so
little (a speck of dust). He indeed loves each and
everyone of us – we are all royal children of God!
"You are my great joy; your love and your humility make Me leave
the heavenly throne and unite Myself with you. Love fills up the
abyss between My greatness and your nothingness."(Diary 512)
Meditations On The
Encounters and Discernment
Meditation: Divine Mercy Images
As I meditated on the
encounters I had with Jesus and The Divine Mercy Images, the
reality of the concepts "The God Man" and "The Son of Man" truly
really looks like you and I! He has two eyes, a nose, a mouth,
hair and a body. More correctly, we look like Jesus!
We are truly created in God's image and likeness, wow!
God The Father, The Son and the
Holy Spirit all dwell within me like He promised in His Holy
Word. Jesus has always been with me from the
very moment I was conceived in my mother`s womb, even though it appeared to me for
awhile that He was no where to be found. This extraordinary
grace reassured me beyond what words could express, that no
matter what the world looks like right now and no matter what it
throws at me - Jesus is here with
me always and He is in control.
The truth is,
everyone of us is truly created in
Jesus' image - the image of God our Creator! Therefore, we
should never underestimate our dignity and worth no matter how
the world judges and treats us. God
commands us to reject sin so that we can journey towards
holiness and be temples of the Lord. Then one day, we will be
fully reunited with Him in His Father`s house
in heaven for all eternity!
my inmost self, knit me together in my mother's womb." Psalms
instruct them to keep everything whatever I have commanded you,
and behold, I am with you every day, even unto the end of time."
meditated further on the images, I
understood why St. Faustina reacted to the
original image with feelings of frustration and sadness as she
expressed in the following words:
"Once, when I was visiting
the artist [Eugeniusz Kazimirowski] who was painting the image,
and saw that it is not as beautiful as Jesus is, I felt very sad
about it, but I hid that deep in my heart. When we had left the
artist's house, Mother Superior [Irene] stayed in town to attend
to some matters while I returned home alone. I went
immediately to the chapel and wept a good deal. I said to the
Lord: 'Who will paint You as beautiful as You are?' All of a
sudden I heard the words:
'Not in the beauty of the color, nor of the
brush lies the greatness of this image, but in My grace." (Diary
that Saint Faustina would have found the "Hyla"image (painted by
Adolf Hyla after her death) much more pleasing and acceptable to her.
I don't believe it is a mere
coincidence that the "Hyla image" hangs above the tomb (white
marble coffin) of
St. Faustina at the Shrine of The Divine Mercy in Kraków-Łagiewniki,
have to say that I could see Jesus in both of these images. His
body and facial structure are pretty much the same in both.
Although, I would have to conclude that the "Hyla image"
resembles Jesus more as the facial features are much more
beautiful than the original image shows. In actuality, I found
that even the Hyla image, as beautiful as it is, does not show
Him "as beautiful as He is" either. His hair was a glossy onyx
black and much thicker than the image shows. His eyes were a
vivid mesmerizing blue shade and his face was fuller and more
masculine than the image shows. His tall, strong body type
however, matched the images. His legs were very long and thick
and he was about six feet tall I figured. The leather jacket He
was wearing ended at about the level of the sash He is shown
wearing in the images. On the first day I saw Him, I was able to
see the back pockets of the blue jeans He was wearing.
Therefore, I was able to see His body type very clearly.
Catechism of The Catholic Church:
"Christ, . . . in the very
revelation of the mystery of the Father and of his love, makes
man fully manifest to himself and brings to light his exalted
vocation." It is in Christ, "the image of the invisible God,"
that man has been created "in the image and likeness" of the
Creator. It is in Christ, Redeemer and Saviour, that the
divine image, disfigured in man by the first sin, has been
restored to its original beauty and ennobled by the grace of
God.The divine image is present in every man.
It shines forth in the communion of persons, in the likeness of
the unity of the divine persons among themselves (cf. chapter
two). Endowed with "a spiritual and immortal" soul, the
human person is "the only creature on earth that God has willed
for its own sake." From his conception, he is destined for
eternal beatitude. The human person participates in the light
and power of the divine Spirit. By his reason, he is capable of
understanding the order of things established by the Creator. By
free will, he is capable of directing himself toward his true
good. He finds his perfection "in seeking and loving what is
true and good." By virtue of his soul and his spiritual powers
of intellect and will, man is endowed with freedom, an
"outstanding manifestation of the divine image."By his reason,
man recognizes the voice of God which urges him "to do what is
good and avoid what is evil."Everyone is obliged to follow this
law, which makes itself heard in conscience and is fulfilled in
the love of God and of neighbour. Living a moral life bears
witness to the dignity of the person. "Man, enticed by the Evil
One, abused his freedom at the very beginning of history."He
succumbed to temptation and did what was evil. He still desires
the good, but his nature bears the wound of original sin. He is
now inclined to evil and subject to error:
Man is divided in himself. As a result, the whole life of men,
both individual and social, shows itself to be a struggle, and a
dramatic one, between good and evil, between light and darkness.
By his Passion, Christ delivered us from Satan and from
sin. He merited for us the new life in the Holy Spirit. His
grace restores what sin had damaged in us. He who believes in
Christ becomes a son of God. This filial adoption transforms him
by giving him the ability to follow the example of Christ. It
makes him capable of acting rightly and doing good. In union
with his Saviour, the disciple attains the perfection of charity
which is holiness. Having matured in grace, the moral life
blossoms into eternal life in the glory of heaven." (The
Catechism of The Catholic Church, 1701-1709)
Meditation: The Shroud of Turin &
3 D Statues
After these encounters
with Jesus, I was inspired to research The Shroud of Turin and
the 3D Statues by Professor Giulio Fanti and Professor
The unimaginable suffering our Lord endured on the cross for our
sake is clearly reflected in these life-size sculptures.
This horrifying reality
is revealed by Professor
of the University of Padua,
Italy. He stated in an interview:
counted 370 wounds from the flagellation, without taking into
account the wounds on his sides, which the Shroud doesn’t show
because it only enveloped the back and front of the body. We can
therefore hypothesize a total of at least 600 blows. In
addition, the three-dimensional reconstruction has made it
possible to discover that at the moment of his death, the man of
the Shroud sagged down towards the right, because his right
shoulder was dislocated so seriously as to injure the nerves.”
After studying these two
sculptures from photos, I would have to say that they both match
Jesus body type as shown in the images and in my two personal
encounters with Him. I feel the basic facial structure shown in
the statues are a match as well. The "Padua" statue bears the
most resemblance and because it is 3D it displays the face of
Christ with greater accuracy. As you can see in this particular
statue, the face is fuller and more masculine than it appears in
either of the two Divine Mercy Images. Both statues show that
Jesus carried a longer beard at the time of His death. I saw
Jesus with a short beard as both images show.
Jesus was only 33 years
old when He died. He was a very young man by today's standards.
As a mother, with children that are around that age, I could not even
bear the thought of the intense suffering Our Blessed Mother
Mary must have endured
along with her Son. Then I imagined being His mother for a
Seeing the risen Jesus
as a beautiful, healthy and strong young man made me reflect on
His Bitter Passion prior and the horrifying contrast!
It has been hypothesized that he received "at least 600 blows". Jesus was obviously a very strongly built man as otherwise, His
body would have never been able to survive such an unimaginable
assault. I thought to myself, this is the very same man that was rejected
brutally humiliated, tortured and crucified on the cross for my
(our) salvation. Intense feelings of compassion and relief flooded my whole being as I said to
Jesus in my thoughts, "I am so glad you are okay."
suddenly flooded my soul with the realization that my faith had
come full circle now - Jesus is indeed risen!
As I further
reflected on Jesus life, death and resurrection, I thought
to myself - Jesus is the perfect best friend, the perfect parent,
the perfect sibling, the perfect spouse, the perfect child - total PERFECTION. He is the epitome of
GOODNESS (Love, Mercy and Justice). He is The One, we should all
fall in love with and strive to follow His example, keeping in
mind THE FIRST COMMANDMENT OF GOD!
While I love my family
and friends dearly and with my whole heart, it is not until the
creature is fully united and immersed in the EPITOME OF LOVE
with THE CREATOR JESUS CHRIST that we are truly fulfilled and
complete. I received just a taste of this heaven on earth and
until I see Jesus again I shall remain restless and incomplete.
Augustine declared to God:
"You have made us for
Yourself, O Lord, and our heart is restless until it rests in
In my thoughts I said to
God (and Blessed Mother), thank you for the unrivaled gift of
your precious son Jesus, you must be so proud of Him! Suddenly I
desired to be Jesus` mother and have Him as my very own child!
The immense love Our
Heavenly Father and Mother
have for all of us is undeniable.They
both endured incomprehensible suffering together with their
Beloved Son at the foot of the cross for the love of their
Children on Earth - Truly a Father and Mother, wanting to Save
their Beloved Children no matter the cost.
Rightly so, we should
all give thanks for His sacrifice and "listen to Him" so that we
will also be pleasing to the Almighty Father.
he was still speaking, behold, a bright cloud cast a shadow over
them, - then from the cloud came a voice that said, “This is my
beloved Son, with whom I am well pleased; listen to him.”
(Transfiguration of Jesus, Matthew
of The Catholic Church explains the miracle of "The
Transfiguration of Jesus" this way:
aims at strengthening the apostles’ faith in anticipation of his
Passion: the ascent onto the 'high mountain' prepares for the
ascent to Calvary.Christ, Head of the Church, manifests what his
Body contains and radiates in the sacraments: ‘the hope of
glory’ (Catechism of the Catholic Church, 568).
Sacraments of Baptism, Confession & Holy Communion
During both the first
and second encounters, "Divine Mercy Jesus" first appeared to me
in the entryway to the church, standing in between the two holy water fonts that are on either
side of the entryway into the church. I don't believe that was a
coincidence. Divine Mercy Jesus appearing there, symbolized the
sacrament of Baptism and Confession("the pale ray stands for the Water which makes souls
righteous.") While He was hidden in regular clothing, the
symbolism of the "pale ray" become evidently clear to me
during this meditation. The sacrament of Baptism we are cleansed
of original sin. The Sacrament of Confession, absolves the
faithful from sins committed after Baptism.
"Those who approach the sacrament of
Penance/Confession/Reconcilliation obtain pardon from God's
mercy for the offense committed against him, and are, at the
same time, reconciled with the Church which they have wounded by
their sins and which by charity, by example, and by prayer
labors for their conversion." (Catechism
of the Catholic Church, 1422)
During the second
encounter , "Divine Mercy Jesus" spoke two words to me. It was
when "The Liturgy of the Eucharist" began. He asked me:“What Page?”
My reply was "Thirteen" which I didn't realize
until later, was the page in our mass booklets where "The
Liturgy of the Eucharist" was. Divine Mercy Jesus speaking those two words to me at that
specific point during the mass, symbolized the sacrament of Holy Communion("the red ray stands for
the Blood which is the life of
souls.") While He was
hidden in regular clothing, the symbolism of the "red ray"
became evidently clear to me during this meditation.
"The two rays denote
Blood and Water. The pale ray stands for the Water which makes
souls righteous. The red ray stands for the Blood which is the
life of souls...These two rays issued forth from the very depths
of My tender mercy when My agonized Heart was opened by a lance
on the Cross. These rays shield souls from the wrath of My
Father. Happy is the one who will dwell in their shelter, for
the just hand of God shall not lay hold of him. I desire that
the first Sunday after Easter be the Feast of Mercy." (Diary
Voice and Actions
While Jesus spoke only
two simple words to me, I knew it was Him in my heart. He
spoke these words in the most loving, gentle voice I have ever
heard. Vibes oflove, kindness, gentleness,
peacefulness, patience, attentiveness, empathy and understanding
emanated from His voice. In fact, if He would have told me He
was Jesus, I would have surely grabbed onto His hand and fallen
to my knees! His Divine
Presence (and His voice) was unshakable, however, at the time, my human
nature (mind) led me to conclude that I must be deluded and that He was
just a man and nothing more.
"My sheep hear my
voice; I know them, and they follow me. I give them eternal
life, and they shall never perish. No one can take them out of
my hand." (John 10:27-28)
Jesus knew absolutely
everything about me to the last detail, including where I would
be and how I would react at every moment in time during the
whole duration of the encounters. He even knew my taste in
clothing (blue jeans and black leather jackets are my favourite
casual clothing, particularly for men's wear). He hid very well
in this common casual clothing of our times, leading me to
believe He was merely a man - "Jesus in blue jeans, as if, I
thought?." Everything Jesus did was perfectly timed and
in sync with everything I was doing at every single moment - He
graced me with "custom made" encounters you could say!
"Even the hairs of
your head have all been counted." (Luke 12:7)
Jesus purposely let me
observe Him from the back and the front (top to bottom). He
obviously knew, I the creature, would be very interested in this
stranger that resembled my Creator, my God. I think He took
great delight in communing with me in this way. He knows my
personality, in that I am very inquisitive, detailed and
discerning person. I believe He enjoyed feeding my child-like
curiosity. Indeed I felt so "little" in His Divine Presence,
and was rather overwhelmed by His" greatness".
"Before I formed you in the womb I
knew you; before you came to birth I consecrated you; I have
appointed you as prophet to the nations." (Jeremiah 1:5)
"Truly I tell you, anyone who will not
receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter
As I am trying to convey in this
meditation, my heart and soul sensed that I was in Jesus' Divine
Presence although my mind refused to believe that this could
even be a possibility. The overwhelming fear I felt during these encounters, most certainly added to this attitude of denial, in
that I wanted to "escape" Him. In time, I realized that it
is not wise " for me to deny that it was Jesus, when all the
evidence I had reviewed pointed to the fact that it was indeed my Lord!
This appears to be the sort of experience
and rationalization the apostles went through, as they often did
not recognize Jesus at first.
"Directly after this He made the
disciples get into the boat and go on ahead to the other side
while he would send the crowds away.After sending the crowds
away he went up into the hills by himself to pray. When evening
came, he was there alone, while the boat, by now far out on the
lake, was battling with a heavy sea, for there was a head-wind.
In the fourth watch of the night he went towards them, walking
on the lake,and when the disciples saw him walking on the lake
they were terrified. ‘It is a ghost’ they said, and cried out in
fear.But at once Jesus called out to them, saying, ‘Courage!
It is I! Do not be afraid.’lt was Peter who answered.
‘Lord,’ he said ‘if it is you, tell me to come to you across the
water.’Come’ said Jesus. Then Peter got out of the boat
and started walking towards Jesus across the water,but as soon
as he felt the force of the wind, he took fright and began to
sink. ‘Lord! Save me!’ he cried. Jesus put out his hand at
once and held him. ‘Man of little faith,’ he said ‘why did you
doubt?’And as they got into the boat the wind dropped. The
men in the boat bowed down before him and said, ‘Truly, you are
the Son of God’.(Matthew 14:22-33)
Also, Peter himself tried to place an
obstacle in Jesus' path. He was influenced by Satan to think
like a "human" (The Flesh) rather than like "God" (The Spirit).
Jesus further conveys to His disciples that they must be
obedient to God, by taking up their crosses, rather than running
and hiding from them. This is indeed the message He is sending
to all of His children.
"From then onwards
Jesus began to make it clear to his disciples that he
was destined to go to Jerusalem and suffer grievously at
the hands of the elders and chief priests and scribes
and to be put to death and to be raised up on the third
day. Then, taking him aside, Peter started to rebuke
him. 'Heaven preserve you, Lord,' he said, 'this must
not happen to you.' But he turned and said to Peter,
'Get behind me, Satan! You are an obstacle in my path,
because you are thinking not as God thinks but as human
beings do.' Then Jesus said to his disciples, 'If anyone
wants to be a follower of mine, let him renounce himself and
take up his cross and follow me. Anyone who wants to save
his life will lose it; but anyone who loses his life for my sake
will find it. What, then,
will anyone gain by winning the whole world and
forfeiting his life? Or what can anyone offer in
exchange for his life? 'For the Son of man is going
to come in the glory of his Father with his angels, and
then he will reward each one according to his
behaviour." (Matthew 16:21-27)
"I tell you most solemnly, unless a man
is born through water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the
kingdom of God: what is born of the flesh is flesh; what is born
of the Spirit is spirit. Do not be surprised when I say: You
must be born from above.The wind blows wherever it pleases; you
hear its sound, but you cannot tell where it comes from or where
it is going. That is how it is with all who are born of the
During my discernment
process, the supernatural elements during my encounters became
ever so apparent to me. There was no sound to be heard when
Jesus walked behind me from the parking lot to the church. There
was no sound when He climbed up the stairs - a man of His size
and build would have surely made a loud audible noise. He made
no noise when He sat behind me during the second encounter - no
breathing sound, no wrestling of the mass guide He held in his
hands, and no movement sounds. It was almost as though there was
no one sitting behind me at all. However, each time I turned
around to take "sneak peaks" at Him, He was surely there.
When Jesus walked
through the entryway in between the baptismal fonts, He looked
so regal despite the common clothing He wore. His body stance
and expression were just like they are in the Image, except His
arms were at His side. On both days, He stood
there for several seconds in a ``freeze frame``of the Image,
that I would later make the connection.
His face was perfect,
without any blemishes of any kind. His hair and beard were
perfect - silky and perfectly wavy at the ends just like in the
image. He clearly looked out of place, like an exotic super
model from California I thought (once I disregarded my initial
instinct that it was Jesus Christ). "He surely could not be
Jesus`` I had concluded! Much to my shocking realization later,
it was indeed my beloved Jesus, The Christ - My Abba! I am
once again at a loss of words to explain the joy that filled my
heart and soul!

Revelation: August 29, 2020 - The "Vilnius Woman" in Church
*Opportunity for Spiritual
Work of Mercy
The 7 Spiritual and Corporal Works of Mercy, can be found
On Saturday, August
29, 2020 before mass, while I was outside the church
handing out pamplets which contained an image of "The Merciful Jesus"(Divine
Mercy Image), there was a woman
that approached me. She became upset when I spoke to her in french (this is currently the only language spoken in this
church as the mass if offered only in french). She pleaded with
me to “please talk to me in English” so I did. This was the
first time anyone in this church has ever made that request of
me, so as you can imagine this came to me as quite a surprise!
Anyway, the next day
Sunday, August 30, 2020, she was walking to our church again.
When she came up to the point where I was standing just outside
the church, I greeted her and started talking to her. Naturally
I was rather curious as to why she was coming to this church
considering she did not speak french at all. I can recall that
I have seen her a few times in church before as she sits
approximately two pews ahead of where I normally sit.
told me that she does not speak french and that she is
Lithuanian (from “Vilnius” Lithuania!)
Well as you can imagine, I was once again very surprised to hear
what she just said to me. She also said that she goes to this
church because it is close to her home and therefore can walk
there easily and then can get back home quickly to care for a
She also expressed how
she really liked the statue of the Virgin Mary we have outside
the church and that it looks very much like the one in
Lithuania. Then she talked about how much she liked Pope John
Paul II (she was delighted to hear that I liked him too). I told
her that we had a “polish” priest and she appeared very
surprised and delighted to learn this.
I thought to myself,
what a "big coincidence" it is that someone is coming to this
church that is from "Vilnius" (the home of the original Divine
Mercy Image etc). What are the chances of this happening?
became clear to me that this was no coincidence but rather a
At first I was wondering
if Jesus was trying to tell me something or perhaps just
reinforcing His revelations to me in church in 2018. After much
reflection, I have now come to believe that He is pleased with
my efforts so far as an apostle of Divine Mercy. When the
woman said she was from “Vilnius,” The Image of the Merciful Jesus
(the original Diving Mercy Image painted by Eugeniusz
Kazimirowski under the direction of St. Faustina), was the first thing
that came to my mind – Jesus’ presence was undeniable!
Thank you Jesus for this special grace!
come to believe that this experience I had with this woman was a
message from God directed at this town and the whole world as we are all
called to evangelize. The masses are currently
being offered in french only as there are no english church in this town. This situation is
unjust and contrary to the teachings of Jesus Christ as He has made
very clear in the following statements He made to all of us.
"I am the Way; I am
Truth and Life. No one can come to the Father except through
me." (John 14:6)
"Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing
them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the holy
Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you.
And behold, I am with you always, until the end of the age."
following are the two greatest commandments of Jesus.
shalt love the Lord thy God with thy whole heart, and with thy
whole soul, and with thy whole mind. This is the greatest and
the first commandment.
the second is like to this: Thou shalt love thy neighbour as
thyself. On these two commandments dependeth the whole law and
the prophets. (Matthew 22:3-40)
following gospel, Jesus tells us about Love and Mercy. He also
tells us what we must do to possess Eternal Life.
“… Master, what
must I do to possess eternal life? But he said to him: What is
written in the law? how readest thou? He answering, said: 'Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with thy whole heart, and
with thy whole soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy
mind: and thy neighbour as thyself.' And he said to him:
Thou hast answered right: this do, and thou shalt live. But he
willing to justify himself, said to Jesus: And who is my
neighbour? And Jesus answering, said: A certain man went down
from Jerusalem to Jericho, and fell among robbers, who also
stripped him, and having wounded him went away, leaving him half
And it chanced, that a certain priest went down the same way:
and seeing him, passed by. In like manner also a Levite, when he
was near the place and saw him, passed by. But a certain
Samaritan being on his journey, came near him; and seeing him,
was moved with compassion. And going up to him, bound up
his wounds, pouring in oil and wine: and setting him upon his
own beast, brought him to an inn, and took care of him. And the
next day he took out two pence, and gave to the host, and said:
Take care of him; and whatsoever thou shalt spend over and
above, I, at my return, will repay thee. 'Which of these three, in thy opinion, was neighbour to him
that fell among the robbers?' But he said: 'He that
shewed mercy to him. And Jesus said to him: Go,
and do thou in like manner.' (Luke 10:25-37)
can anyone claim to love Jesus if they do not care about the
needs of their neighbours (especially their spiritual needs
which are more important than our physical needs considering the fact that we are ultimately "immortal" beings and face judgement
upon our death? Clearly, dismissing the needs of our
neighbours is a mortal sin.
The Church (irrelative of building, language,etc) belongs to
Jesus Christ and His people. God doesn’t listen to those who do
not follow His commandments (Commandment #1 most important!).
Therefore, all the praying and service any person/s is (are)
doing within the church and beyond are useless without love, mercy and obedience
to the ten commandments of God (especially the 1st Commandment).
"When one is in a
state of mortal sin, works
have no merit in heaven nor on earth" and God eventually
"pulls the graces" (coming from the sacraments, etc) according to Fr. Chad Ripperger. Jesus wants our hearts! “Disobedience equals No Holy
Spirit ” (Fr. John Corapi) This separation from God leaves one
open to diabolical influence (evil).
has free will and is ultimately capable of choosing to go
towards the light (Jesus) or darkness (Satan).
reminded me of Jesus' words in these gospel passages:
greatest among you shall be your servant. Whosoever shall exalt
himself shall be humbled: and he that shall humble himself shall
be exalted … Woe to you scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites. You
lock the kingdom of heaven before human beings. You do not enter
yourselves, nor do you allow entrance to those trying to enter.
… Behold, your house
will be abandonned, desolate. I tell you, you will not see me
again till you say, ‘Blessed is he that cometh in the name of
the Lord’.” (Matthew
know your works; I know that you are neither cold nor hot. I
wish you were either cold or hot. So, because you are lukewarm,
neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of my mouth.”
This revelation further reminded me of
Jesus' words to St. Faustina:
I am giving you three ways of
exercising mercy toward your neighbour: the first - by deed, the
second - by word, the third - by prayer. In these three degrees
is contained the fullness of mercy, and it is an unquestionable
proof of love for Me. By this means a soul glorifies and pays
reverence to My mercy. Yes, the first Sunday after Easter is the
Feast of Mercy, but there must also be acts of mercy, and I
demand the worship of My mercy through the solemn celebration of
the Feast and through the veneration of the image which is
painted. By means of this image I shall grant many graces to
souls. It is to be a reminder of the demands of My mercy,
because even the strongest faith is of no avail without works.
Tell sinners that no one shall
escape My Hand; if they run away from My Merciful Heart, they
will fall into My Just Hands. Tell sinners that I am always
waiting for them, that I listen intently to the beating of their
heart ... when will it beat for Me? Write, that I am speaking to
them through their remorse of conscience, through their failures
and sufferings, through thunderstorms, through the voice of the
Church. And if they bring all My graces to naught, I begin to be
angry with them, leaving them alone and giving them what they
want. (Diary, 1728)
During Holy Mass, I saw the Lord Jesus nailed
upon the cross amidst great torments. A soft moan issued from
His Heart. After some time, He said:
“I thirst. I
thirst for the salvation of souls. Help Me, My daughter, to save
“Come to Me,
all of you.” (Diary, 1485)
“The loss of
each soul plunges Me into mortal sadness.”(Diary, 1397)
Pope Francis says: “Being
afraid of change is the temptation of the devil.”
Father James Altman says:
“You can’t love who you don’t know.”
Essentially going to church gives one the opportunity to hear
the gospels, pray, do adoration and receive the sacraments and
their associated graces. Therefore, it is of the utmost
importance for one to have an easily accessible church to go to
(in a language one can speak and understand) in order to get to
know Jesus Christ. Most people do not have the ability to learn
and understand a new language overnight if at all and nor should
they be forced to or else just struggle and suffer during the
mass! Clearly, a person that does not speak a word of english attending a french mass (and vice versa) is not going to get very far
with respect to learning and partaking in their faith and most
importantly getting to know Jesus. Anyway you look at this
situation, it is unjust and a violation of the Two Greatest
Commandments of Jesus Christ.
How would you feel if you went to your earthly "father's house"
(your family home) and once you entered the doors, your family
members spoke a foreign language to you, which you did not
understand nor speak? Communication would surely be very
difficult and frustrating. You would surely feel like you did
not belong and that would be painful - leading you to believe
that you are not really welcome there. Unfortunately, most of us
in this situation would surely never want go back there.
Communication is essential for relationships to grow and be

Sunday, September 6/2020 after mass, I went out for lunch
with a family member. After lunch I asked him if we can go to
the photo shop to pick up my developed photos (I had ordered 4 –
8”x10” photos of Divine Mercy Jesus to place in the binders I
was putting together for my family and Godchild.
As we were
waiting in our car in the parking lot for curbside pickup,
something very interesting happened. Just as the
salesperson was coming to hand me the photos through the
passenger side window where I was sitting, another women (a
vagrant) looked into the driver’s side window of our car to ask
for money. She explained to me that while she was sleeping
outside the night before, someone had stolen her purse and
therefore she had no money for the bus.
of these events were happening at the same time, I told my
family member to reach over and accept the photo order from the
salesperson while I was looking for my wallet in my purse so I
can give some money to the vagrant woman.
thought, what are the chances of me picking up my Divine Mercy
Image Photo order at the same time I was looking in my purse as
a vagrant woman was asking me for money?
became clear to me that this was no coincidence but rather another
When I reflected
on this afterwards, it reminded me of the following passage in St. Faustina’s diary:
“+ Jesus came to
the main entrance today, under the guise of a poor young man.
This young man, emaciated, barefoot and bareheaded, and with his
clothes in tatters, was frozen because the day was cold and
rainy. He asked for something hot to eat. So I went to the
kitchen, but found nothing there for the poor. But, after
searching around for some time, I succeeded in finding some
soup, which I reheated and into which
I crumbled some bread, and I gave it to the poor young man, who
ate it. As I was taking the bowl from him, he gave me to know
that He was the Lord of heaven and earth. When I saw Him as He
was, He vanished from my sight. When I went back in and
reflected on what had happened at the gate, I heard these words
in my soul:
My daughter, the blessings of the poor who bless Me as they
leave this gate have reached My ears. And your compassion,
within the bounds of obedience, has pleased Me, and this is why
I came down from My throne-to taste the fruits of your mercy.
Jesus' gospel messages
regarding being merciful to the poor and in need (spiritually
and physically) are clear.
"Give to anyone
who asks you." (Matthew 5:42)
"Give, and it shall be
given to you." (Luke 6:38)
"Faith without love is nothing and it
cannot save." (1 Corinthians 13:2)
"See that a man is justified by works and
not by faith alone for as the body apart from the spirit is dead
so faith apart from works is dead." (James 2:24)
And when the Son of man shall come in his majesty, and all the
angels with him, then shall he sit upon the seat of his majesty.
And all nations shall be gathered together before him, and he
shall separate them one from another, as the shepherd separateth
the sheep from the goats: And he shall set the sheep on his
right hand, but the goats on his left. Then shall the king say
to them that shall be on his right hand: Come, ye blessed of my
Father, possess you the kingdom prepared for you from the
foundation of the world. For I was hungry, and you gave me to
eat; I was thirsty, and you gave me to drink; I was a stranger,
and you took me in: Naked, and you covered me: sick, and you
visited me: I was in prison, and you came to me. Then shall the
just answer him, saying: Lord, when did we see thee hungry, and
fed thee; thirsty, and gave thee drink? And when did we see thee
a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and covered thee? Or
when did we see thee sick or in prison, and came to thee? And
the king answering, shall say to them: Amen I say to you, as
long as you did it to one of these my least brethren, you did it
to me. Then he shall say to them also that shall be on his
left hand: Depart from me, you cursed, into everlasting fire
which was prepared for the devil and his angels. For I was
hungry, and you gave me not to eat: I was thirsty, and you gave
me not to drink. I was a stranger, and you took me not in:
naked, and you covered me not: sick and in prison, and you did
not visit me. Then they also shall answer him, saying: Lord,
when did we see thee hungry, or thirsty, or a stranger, or
naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister to thee?
Then he shall answer them, saying: Amen I say to you, as long
as you did it not to one of these least, neither did you do it
to me. And these shall go into everlasting punishment: but
the just, into life everlasting. (Mathew 25:31-46)
Without a doubt in my mind, I was once again in the presence of
"The Merciful Jesus" ( via The Divine Mercy Images photos in the package being
handed to me at the same time I was giving money to the poor
vagrant woman). Thank you Jesus for this special grace!

*Opportunity for Spiritual
Work of Mercy

Sunday, September 19/2020, before mass, while I
was outside the church handing out photos of "The Merciful
Jesus", there were four children
that approached me. These children were so intent on coming to
church that evening and went home to ask their parents if they
could go to our church. They arrived shortly after the mass had
Much to my
disappointment (but not surprising) the three boys left after
approximately fifteen minutes, expressing that they were “bored
because they did not understand french”.
On the other
hand and much to my surprise, the seven year old girl, Lillia-Mara
came to sit beside me in my pew after the three boys left. At
the end of mass I introduced her to the Image of Divine Mercy
Jesus (above the Holy Sacrament) as during the mass she made the
connection that the larger image of Jesus was the same image of
Jesus that I had given her earlier when I had met her outside
(she had pointed at the image from our pew at the back). We
prayed together and asked Jesus, that if she had not yet
received the sacraments of Baptism and First Holy Communion,
that He would grant her those graces soon. To this prayer, she
added that she wanted to ask Jesus to help those people that are
sick. I was immensely moved by this little seven year old girl’s
maturity and desire for Jesus. I was further moved by her compassion
which she expressed through her concern for the sick and that we
should also ask Jesus for His
help in this regard.
When I reflected
on this afterwards, it reminded me of these gospel passages:
“Let the children come to me and do not prevent them; for the
kingdom of God belongs to such as these. (Luke 18:16)
“Who is the
greatest in the kingdom of heaven?” He called a child over,
placed it in their midst, and said, “Amen, I say to you, unless
you turn and become like children,you will not enter the kingdom of heaven.
Whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the
kingdom of heaven. And whoever receives one child such as this
in my name receives me. “Whoever causes one of these little oneswho believe in me to sin, it would be better
for him to have a great millstone hung around his neck and to be
drowned in the depths of the sea. Woe to the world because of
things that cause sin! Such things must come, but woe to the one
through whom they come! If your hand or foot causes you to
sin,cut it off and throw it away. It is better for you to enter
into life maimed or crippled than with two hands or two feet to
be thrown into eternal fire. And if your eye causes you to sin,
tear it out and throw it away. It is better for you to enter
into life with one eye than with two eyes to be thrown into
fiery Gehenna. “See that you do not despise one of these little
ones,for I say to you that their angels in heaven always look
upon the face of my heavenly Father. What is your opinion? If a
man has a hundred sheep and one of them goes astray, will he not
leave the ninety-nine in the hills and go in search of the
stray? And if he finds it, amen, I say to you, he rejoices more
over it than over the ninety-nine that did not stray. In just
the same way, it is not the will of your heavenly Father that
one of these little ones be lost.(Matthew
look at the little girl's name It is clearly a combination of
"Lilium" (latin for lily) and "Maria" (latin for Mary).
"Mara" is the Hebrew name for Mary. This is definately not a
coincidence - Jesus loves His mother!
I have come to believe that this
experience I had with these children was a message from God
directed at this town (and the whole world). The masses are
currently only being offered in french only.
There is no english church in this town. The majority of the
parishioners are getting old. Children are the future of the
world and the church. Language should therefore should not be a
barrier to prevent any of God's children from coming to know
Jesus, young or old. Young children are innnocent and because of
this are naturally more receptive to being catechized and
therefore it is our duty as Christians to ensure there are no
barriers, language or otherwise that will prevent them from
getting to know Jesus.
Once again, Jesus is clearly
pointing out that this situation is unjust and a violation
of His Two Greatest Commandments.

- The Virgin Mary & Jesus"
*Opportunity for Spiritual
Work of Mercy
The 7 Spiritual and Corporal Works of Mercy, can be found
In the spring (2020), Miguel a family friend
came over for a visit with his daughter Eva Merry-Angel
Lilley. I asked Miguel if his daughter had had their first
communion yet. He replied to me saying he was unsure. I thought
this was a good opportunity for me to share some literature on
the divine mercy devotion (including some divine mercy images)
with him and his daughter. I told his daughter Eva Merry-Angel
to give a folder containing the same information I had given to
her father, to her mother, so she could also learn about the
Divine Mercy Devotion.
On September 29, 2020, I called Miguel to
remind him to come to our church for mass in the evening to
celebrate St. Michael's feast day (and also reminded him that
St. Michael is his patron saint). I was disappointed to hear
that Miguel would not be able to attend as he was going out of
town that evening. However, upon calling Eva Merry-Angel's
mother Natalie to remind her of the evening mass, she informed
me that she would come with Eva Merry-Angel and her brother Nico.
She also mentioned that Eva Merry-Angel was very excited about
the Divine Mercy devotion information and photos of the merciful
Jesus I had given her. In fact she went on the internet to find
out more information about it and also started telling her
friends about it. I was indeed very pleased to hear this.
At the end of the mass, there was a small group of
children that had gathered at the front with their parents. I
was wondering why they were there and what they were doing. As I
listened to the conversation, I realized that it was a meeting
in preparation for their childrens' sacrament of first
communion. Immediately, I went to Natalie's pew (Eva Merry-Angel
and Nico were sitting beside her) and asked her if her children
had received the sacrament of first communion. She informed me
that they hadn't received this sacrament yet (they attend public
school). At that moment, I urged her to speak with the priest
and take advantage of this opportunity to include her children
so they could also receive the sacrament of First Communion.
Natalie was unsure as she mentioned to me that she needed to ask
for their father's permission. I reassured her that the children
only needed one parent's permission and that I would highly
recommend they take advantage of this opportunity this very
evening and informed her of the many graces the children would
receive from getting this sacrament.
Natalie immediately went up to talk to the priest
about this and made arrangements to come the next day to church
so the children could receive further preparation to
receive the sacrament. Eva Merry-Angel and Nico received the
sacraments of First Confession and First Communion soon
after. I recalled I had asked the Virgin Mary many months before
to place these children (along with several other children) in
her immaculate heart.
Strangely enough Natalie mentioned that a few days
after St. Michael's feast day, she had taken Eva Merry-Angel
Lilley and Nico into the bush and that she had lost her car
keys. Then when she and her children had returned to the car,
they found a note from a woman named Lillian (along with
her phone number) stating she had found their car keys and to
call her to reclaim them.
interesting to note that the father's name Miguel, it is
basically "Michaēl"(latin) in spanish. If you look at the little girl's name
Lilley, it is
clearly a combination of the names "Ave Maria Angelus Lilium"
(latin). It is also interesting to note that the
Roman Catholic Church, adopted the white lily (later known as
the Madonna lily) as a symbol for the Virgin Mary - its
whiteness symbolizing Mary's purity, innocence, fertility, and
connection to the divine.
The Virgin Mary -
White Lily Of TheTrinity - The Revelations of St. Gertrude, Book
3, Chapter 18:
The following day, as Gertrude prayed, the Mother of God
appeared to her, in the presence of the ever - adorable Trinity,
under the form of a white lily, with three leaves, one standing
erect, and the other two bent down. By this she understood that
it was not without reason that the Blessed Mother of God was
called white lily of the Trinity, since She contained in
herself, with more plenitude and perfection than any other
creature, the virtues of the Most Holy Trinity, which she had
never sullied by the slightest stain of sin.
The upright leaf of the lily represented the omnipotence of God
the Father, and the two leaves which bent down, the wisdom and
love of the Son and the Holy Spirit, to which the Virgin
approaches so nearly.
Then the Blessed Virgin made known to her that if anyone salutes
Her devoutly as the white lily of the Trinity and vermilion rose
of Heaven, She will show how She prevails by the omnipotence of
the Father, how skillful She is in procuring the salvation of
men by the wisdom of the Son, and with what exceeding love her
heart is filled by the charity of the Holy Ghost. The Blessed
Virgin added these words: "I will appear at the hour of death to
those who salute me thus in such glory, that they will
anticipate the very joys of Heaven." From this time the Saint
frequently saluted the Holy Virgin or her images with the below
"Hail white lily of the ever peaceful and glorious Trinity!
Hail, effulgent rose, the delight of Heaven,
Of whom the King of Heaven was born and by whose milk He was
nourished! Nourish our souls by the effusions of thy Divine
(Known as the 'Hail Mary of Gold' prayer)

obvious via the symbolism. Once again, I am sure this was no coincidence but rather another

Ravens - Opposition - Satan"

While I do believe God does make His presence known to me via
his creatures, I could never ascertain these experiences to the
point that I would want to share them until now.
Upon coming home from church on November 27, 2020, I was
in the bedroom and looked out the window because I heard a very
noisy crying bird – I saw a raven perched in the huge oak
tree in the yard and he was looking at me. Once again, I
thought, it is Satan (I know this bird can be a symbol for Satan
as well as "solitude")!
Normally I would not think anything of this, however, prior to
this I recalled while driving on my way to the church earlier on this
very same day, two ravens were flying overhead in front
of me high in the sky which got my attention but nothing more.
Then on my way out of the church after adoration on this very
same day, as I drove home, while I was stopped at the stop sign at the
end of the street, I saw another raven perched on the
hydro pole looking at me. At that point I thought, that is
“Satan” and rolled down my window telling him to go away! Then I
turned right and drove home.
Then, on the morning of November 28, 2020, when I awoke I
felt inspired by the Holy Spirit to write some notes regarding
what I had witnessed with the ravens the day before. Then I
planned on going out to do some evangelizing with my print
material elsewhere. I went to my office room to make some notes
at my desk. Suddenly I heard another screeching bird sound. I
looked out of my office window, and guess what? I saw another
raven perched on the hydro pole looking at me. When I opened
the window and said “go away” he soared over my driveway and
appears to have flown down into the front lawn behind a big
evergreen tree in the yard so I lost sight of him.
Then after I was ready to go out I went into my car. I realized
I forgot my cell phone so exited my car to go back into the
house to get the phone – at that moment, I saw the raven
perched on the hydro pole a second time, looking at me. This
time I said to the raven, “If you are the devil, get away
from me” and when I did the sign of the cross over him at the
same time as I said these words, he flew away! The presence of
God was undeniable!
I recalled I had a Benedictine crucifix and rosary around my neck
that day (and the priest had blessed a total of 16 benedictine
rosaries and 2 benedictine crosses (gifts for Christmas) Also, I
was doing the St. Benedict Medal prayers after the divine mercy
chaplet at the 3:00 hour the past few days at home so I knew
these occurences were definitely not a coincidence! Neither is
the peace that I felt being in solitude as I sat
alone on the balcony in the church for the first time that
raven, because of his dark plumage, coarse cry, and
supposed tastes, sometimes represents the devil; but
God seems to have a fondness for them. One was sent to guard
the body of St. Vincent Ferrer; and ravens are known to have fed
at least three different saints (St. Benedict, St. Anthony the

connection with God." (St Maximilian Kolbe)
experience of the ravens in generalreminded me of the story of St.
Benedict and The
Raven, see the following link:
God gave me peace in a situation where there was none to be had!
I have to admit (without going into any detail)
that I have been experiencing "opposition"
since the very beginning that I have received private
revelations from God. As time has gone on the "opposition" has
increased as expected but so has God's presence and His graces!
This situation only gives further validity to one's revelations
as this is the common experience of individuals that experience
God in such a profound way, much to the repulsion of Satan who
abhors and wants to destroy those that desire to help Jesus save souls (St. Faustina experienced
similar serious opposition). However, when one is attached to Jesus,
there is nothing to fear! After all it is God that is in Control
of the Whole Universe!
As Christian history has shown, anyone that tries to promote
"God's Holy Word" is sure to encounter opposition from those
individuals closest to them (both within the church and outside
of the church as the following gospels clearly show).
"Do not think that I came to
send peace upon earth: I came not to send peace but the sword.
For I came to set a man at variance
against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the
daughter in law against her mother in law.
And a man's enemies shall be they of
his own household. He that loveth father or mother more than me,
is not worthy of me; and he that loveth son or daughter more
than me, is not worthy of me. And he that taketh not up his
cross, and followeth me, is not worthy of me. He that findeth
his life, shall lose it: and he that shall lose his life for me,
shall find it. He that receiveth you, receiveth me: and he that
receiveth me, receiveth him that sent me.
He that receiveth a prophet in the name
of a prophet, shall receive the reward of a prophet: and he that
receiveth a just man in the name of a just man, shall receive
the reward of a just man. And whosoever shall give to drink to
one of these little ones a cup of cold water only in the name of
a disciple, amen I say to you, he shall not lose his reward."
During Holy Mass, I saw the Lord Jesus nailed
upon the cross amidst great torments. A soft moan issued from
His Heart. After some time, He said:
“I thirst. I
thirst for the salvation of souls. Help Me, My daughter, to save
Jesus faced the ultimate oppostion (and evil) to the
point of His crucifixion and death!
hated me without cause." (John 15:25)
also consider the many many "Marian Apparitions" our world has
lovingly received from God (but not listened to - our world is
wearing "ear plugs" as many choose to ignore the Gospels ), it
is becoming increasingly obvious that we are in a state of
"chastisement" as a result! Basically Mary's message to the
world is always the same, "Repent and Return to God." Remember
God does not listen to those that do not obey, in essence, He is
the one wearing "ear plugs" now!
Rosary is our greatest weapon against the evil spirits!
As St. Paul said: "For our
wrestling is not against flesh and blood; but against
principalities and powers, against the rulers of the world of
this darkness, against the spirits of wickedness in the high
places." (Ephesians 6:12)
"He that is the greatest among you
shall be your servant. And whosoever shall exalt himself shall
be humbled: and he that shall humble himself shall be exalted.
But woe to you scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites; because you
shut the kingdom of heaven against men, for you yourselves do
not enter in; and those that are going in, you suffer not to
enter. Woe to you scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites:
because you devour the houses of widows, praying long prayers.
For this you shall receive the greater judgment. Woe to
you scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites; because you go round

made, you make him the child of hell twofold more than
Woe to you blind guides, that say,
Whosoever shall swear by the temple, it is nothing; but he that

is nothing; but whosoever shall swear by the gift that is upon

So you also outwardly indeed appear to men just; but inwardly

Pharisees, hypocrites; that build the sepulchres of the
prophets, and adorn the monuments of the just, And say: If we
had been in the days of our Fathers, we would not have been
partakers with them in the blood of the prophets." (Matthew
There are souls with whom I can do nothing.
They are souls that are continuously observing others, but know
nothing of what is going on within their own selves. They talk
about others continually, even during times of grand silence,
which is reserved for speaking only with Me. Poor souls, they do
not hear My words; their interior remains empty. They do not
look for Me within their own hearts, but in idle talk, where I
am never to be found. They sense their emptiness, but they do
not recognize their own guilt, while souls in whom I reign
completely are a constant source of remorse to them. Instead of
correcting themselves, their hearts swell with envy, and if they
do not come to their senses, they plunge in even deeper. A
heart, which thus far is envious, now begins to be filled with
hate. And they are already at the edge of the precipice. They
are jealous of my gifts in other souls, but they themselves are
unable and unwilling to accept them. (Diary 1717)
experience brought to mind this passage in St. Faustina's
diary (expect the creatures/demons in her case were black dogs instead of ravens):
adoration, half way to my cell, I was surrounded by a pack
of huge black dogs who were jumping and howling and trying to
tear me to pieces. I realized that they were not dogs, but
demons. One of them spoke up in a rage, “Because you have
snatched so many souls away from us this night, we will tear you
to pieces.” I answered, “If that is the will of the most
merciful God, tear me to pieces, for I have justly deserved it,
because I am the most miserable of all sinners, and God is ever
holy, just, and infinitely merciful.” To these words all the
demons answered as one,
“Let us flee, for she is not alone; the
Almighty is with her!” (Diary, 320)
Revelation: November 29, 2020 - The "Holy Communion
Incident" at Church
On Sunday, November 29, 2020 while I was walking up to
receive the Holy Eucharist, there was a woman in front of me
that had just received Holy Communion from the priest and went
off to the right side to consume the Host.
It was quite shocking for me to see what took place as my eyes
were drawn towards this woman to witness what had just happened!
Not one but
Hosts that appeared to soar like little saucers, left the woman’s
hands and fell on to the floor next to the altar. While this
happened, the priest was preparing to give me the host as well.
However, because of what I just saw, I immediately looked at the
priest in surprise and pointed to the two hosts that had just
fallen to the floor!
The priest left me
abruptly to immediately go pick up the hosts that were on the
floor and put them in water and then came back to give me
question that entered my mind was, how would what just
happened possible unless the priest gave her 2 Hosts that were
stuck together perhaps? That doesn’t seem possible though.
They are very thick hosts and I would think the priest
would have noticed when placing them in her hands because he
usually places the host on its side in the person’s hand (to
avoid contact with person)? I also wondered why the hosts didn’t
fall to the floor directly in front of her (very strange)?
I must tell you that I find it very out of character for me to
notice something like that because I am normally very focused on
myself and receiving Jesus reverently with head bowed down.
However, that day it was as if my eyes were guided to look at
that woman in front of me who went to the side to consume
the host (s) she had just received from the priest. I found this
to be strange.
I was unsure as to what this strange occurence could mean.
Regardless, I couldn’t help but to immediately think of the
following passage in St. Faustina’s diary (while our situation
was different, the thing that is the same is there where 2 hosts
involved and there was a “Double Communion Incident”
involving St. Faustina and a priest).
The crusade day,54 which is the fifth of the month, happened to
fall on the First Friday of the month. This was my day for
keeping watch before the Lord Jesus. It was my duty to make
amends to the Lord for all offenses and acts of disrespect and
to pray that, on this day, no sacrilege be committed. This day,
my spirit was set aflame with special love for the Eucharist. It
seemed to me that I was transformed into a blazing fire. When I was about to receive Holy Communion, a second Host fell
onto the priest’s sleeve, and I did not know which host I was to
receive. After I had hesitated for a moment, the priest made
an impatient gesture with his hand to tell me I should receive
the Host. When I took the Host he gave me, the other one fell
onto my hands. The priest went along the altar rail to
distribute Communion, and I held the Lord Jesus in my hands all
that time. When the priest approached me again, I raised the
Host for him to put it back into the chalice, because when I had
first received Jesus I could not speak before consuming the
Host, and so could not tell him that the other had fallen. But
while I was holding the Host in my hand, I felt such a power of
love that for the rest of the day I could neither eat nor come
to my senses. I heard these words from the Host: ... "I desired to
rest in your hands, not only in your heart." (Divine Mercy In My Soul, Diary 160)
It became evident to me that this was no coincidence but rather another
I was clearly in the presence of "Divine Mercy Image"
(The Merciful) Jesus.
Thank you Jesus for this special grace!

On Friday, January 1, 2021 when I arrived at Church, I
encountered a situation in which there was an attempt to disrupt
my peace – “opposition.” This was not surprising
considering this was “The
Solemnity of Mary, the Holy Mother of God, theBlessed Virgin Mary

"rose" and "Rosa Mystica" is a name given to Mary
(Maria Rosa Mystica - latin). It refers

peace on this day that is for sure, however, he did not succeed!
Mary most certainly "crushed his head" and I was showered with
extra special graces on this very special day. Thank you Jesus!

Maria Rosa Mystica (aka, Our Lady of Rosa Mystica) can be found
Well when I got home, I believe the devil (demons) showed
himself again in the form of two ravens! Once I got out of
my car I decided to put the windshield covering on the car . As
I was doing this I heard loud bird screeches which I recognized
to be ravens although I could not see them immediately due to
all the tall trees next to my car so I walked to the end of the
driveway and looked across the road and into the neighbour’s
yard – sure enough there was a raven on top of a tall tree. So
I said to him … “it must be you again (the devil)? I added “I
am actually happy to see you because that means God is present
as you can not be here without His permission!” So, then at
that moment he flew away with another raven after they circled
over the neighbour’s roof (the house next door). It seems like
they did not want to get too close to me today!
I later recalled
during the summer (2020) I had a very strange raven incident,,
however, at the time I didn’t think anything of it until lately
(considering the recent raven incidents). I had put my
pet rabbit outside to graze on the grass. When I went outside
to check on him I was shocked to see a raven chasing him
under the deck (the rabbit was hiding under a pen leaned against
the house as he was aware of the danger). I tried to chase the
raven out of the yard, however it refused to go and in fact
became very aggressive towards me, screeching and raising it ‘s
wings at me. So I grabbed a nearby shovel to chase it away but
it refused to leave the yard (to fly over the fence as that was
the only way out). Finally, I opened a gate and chased him all
the way to the gate with the shovel. This time, he left albeit
very reluctantly and with quite the fuss!
Wow … now I am
thinking this was “foreshadowing” the “opposition” I would
soon be facing! (See Also:
*November 27, 28, 2020 - St. Benedict and The Ravens*)
incident I had with the raven and the rabbit (a prey
animal, like a lamb) reminded me of the following gospel verse:
“Behold, I send you
out as lambs in the midst of wolves” (Luke 10:3)
passage from the Gospel, he said, reads: “behold, I send you
out as lambs in the midst of wolves”. What does this mean?
“The true preacher is one who knows he is weak, who knows he
cannot defend himself from himself”, Francis explained. The
emissary “in the midst of wolves”, he continued, could object
and ask, “but Lord, so they might eat me?”. And “the answer is”,
he stressed, “Go! This is the way”. The Pope then recalled “a
most profound reflection” by John Chrysostom: “if you do not go
out as a lamb but go as a wolf among wolves, the Lord will not
protect you; defend yourself on your own”. Thus, Francis
continued, “when the preacher believes he is too intelligent or
when one who has the responsibility of issuing forth the Word of
God tries to be sly” and thinks “I am getting along with these
people”, then “it will end badly”, or “he will negotiate God’s
Word with powerful and arrogant people”."
Francis (Jesus via The Gospels) make it very clear that when one
truly chooses to follow Jesus and spread His Holy Word
(gospels), he/she must avoid becoming a "people pleaser"
at all cost ... even if it means becoming an outcast (like Jesus
often was). One must keep their focus on the "Creator"
(heart, mind, soul) first and foremost even if it means
conflict and/or rejection from our fellow man, "Creatures".
Mediation: The Virgin Mary
After I had put the windshield cover in place I went inside the
house and I started thinking about the Virgin Mary. First, I
thought about the Vilnius' woman’s comment back in the summer
when she told me she thought that the Virgin Mary Statue outside
the church looked like the one in Lithuania.
When I did a search online I came up with the following statue
that looks very similar to the one at my church.
Statue of The Virgin Mary, Ilgis Lake, Lithuania
(109 km from Vilnius, Lithuania)
The Black Madonna:
The term Black Madonna or Black Virgin tends to
refer to statues or paintings in Western Christendom of the
Blessed Virgin Mary and the Infant Jesus, where both figures are
depicted as black. The Black Madonna can be found both in
Catholic and Orthodox countries. (Source: Wikepedia)
The Black Madonna of Vilnius, Lithuania:
began to think about the images that the priest gave me
a couple of months before of the “Mother of Mercy”
(Our Lady of Ostrabrama) (Our Lady Mother of Mercy of The Gate
of The Dawn) painting/icon
. I also
have this picture in the back of my (St. Faustina’s) diary.
The feast day of Our Lady
Mother of Mercy of The Gate of The Dawn is celebrated on
NOVEMBER 16 ... this is also the date of my BAPTISM
... what a discovery this was for me today on this day of all
days! ... definately not a coincidence ... a God Incidence!!
St. Maria Faustina Helena Kowalska
wrote of the following mystical experience involving the icon in
"The Gate of Dawn Chapel" the day before (November 15, 1935) the
feast day of the icon, November 16:
"On the evening of the last day [November 15] of the novena
at Ostra Brama,
after the singing of the litany, one of the priests exposed
the Blessed Sacrament in
the monstrance. When he placed it on the altar, I
immediately saw the Infant
out His little arms, first of all toward His Mother, who at
had taken on a living appearance. When the Mother of God was
speaking to me,
Jesus stretched out His tiny hands toward the congregation.
The Blessed Mother
was telling me to accept all
God asked of me like a little child, without
questioning; otherwise it would not be pleasing to God. At
that moment, the Infant
Jesus vanished, and the Mother of God was again lifeless,
and Her picture was the
same as it had been before. But my soul
was filled with great joy and gladness,
and I said to the Lord, “Do with me as You please; I am
ready for everything, but
You, O Lord, must not abandon me even for a moment.” (Diary,

The feast day of Our Lady of Częstochowa is
celebrated on August 26. There I also found the following
quote referenced from St. Faustina's diary.
St. Maria Faustina Helena Kowalska stated
that she prayed in front of this image for 6 hours:
“I had permission to visit Czestochowa while on my journey. I
saw the Mother of God [image] for the first time, when I went to
attend the unveiling of the image at five in the morning,. I
prayed without interruption until eleven, and it seemed to me
that I had just come. The Superior of the house there [Mother
Serafin75] sent a sister for me, to tell me to come to breakfast
and said she was worried (118)that I would miss my train. The
Mother of God told me many things. I entrusted my perpetual vows
to Her, I felt that I was her child and that She was my Mother.
She did not refuse any of my requests.” (Diary, 260)

the urgency of Jesus’ message given to St. Faustina
is getting more intense as the days go by … His (and His
Mother’s) urgency for all of us to do anything and
everything we can in our
power to SAVE SOULS!

certainly come to mind during these times ...
