Recently, a family event took me for a visit far North from me (an 8 hour drive) to visit my husband’s uncle again.
I relished the opportunity to see them all and spend time with them over the weekend plus a few extra days. Amongst the celebrations there were some opportunities for quieter moments.
Uncle has clearly not stopped telling people about his miracle cure, whether they believe in God or not. It’s a take or it leave it story, coming as it does from him. He has no agenda and no need to convince anyone. He clearly only wants to share one thing; the unique and extraordinary peace that he experienced when he was enveloped in the Love of God; without actually seeing Him, he knew who He Was.
He tells us that he does not fear death anymore. And he still has that sense of wonder regarding encountering God unexpectedly and undeservedly, although his understanding and knowledge of God is very abstract and naive still, at the moment.
I enjoyed him re-telling the story as only by hearing it in person and watching his face, can someone truly see how genuine and honest he is about what he discovered. It’s easy to brush off a story until you hear it firsthand. And so once again, a most unlikely fella has become a little draw-card; spreading his tale amongst the unchurched and unbelievers.
Only this time, he knew he was speaking to a believer- that knowing nod and smile of recognition which greets each detail, serves only to loosen further truths that are normally held very private and close to the heart.
And so, it was then that Uncle shared with me just a little more to what had happened; an innocent but absolutely precious piece of the jigsaw, especially to a Catholic sensibility.
While he was laying in the hospital bed, dying, he was visited by a beautiful woman. She sat with him, beside him and held his hand. He was not afraid as the Peace of God enveloped him and indeed the whole room. He felt extraordinary love present with him.
Then the lady said, slowly and with solemn gravity, “You are a very sick man…”
“But”, she continued, “you are going to be okay; you have a lot of people praying for you.” And Uncle, never doubting her words, was uniquely comforted.
This meant so much to me; more than any other detail and the reason is this. I knew that message was meant for me as soon as I received it, not hearing it until more than a year after his recovery. You see, unlike most families we know, Uncle was not surrounded by people praying for him, or a church community. None of his immediate family or friends believe in God, or pray or go to Church at all. Don’t get me wrong, in their hearts I know they desperately “hoped”and “wished” for Uncle to recover; they are good people, as most people are, for the most part. But they truly do not know God. They aren’t really sure He exists.
There were the children and I who offered up constant prayers and daily Masses but we can hardly count as “a lot”. I know that there was a kind, little old Italian lady, an acquaintance of theirs, whom, Aunty told me, had Masses offered for Uncle’s recovery. That was certainly a relief to me at the time, to hear of one other who was truly crying out to heaven for him. But it was more than that.
That message was meant for me, and not just for me, because our Jesus to Mankind prayer group had been consistently offering up prayer for him by name, daily and as a group, several times a week, over the weeks and months of his increasingly more serious illness.
And each Jesus to Mankind prayer group around the world offers its prayers in union with one another each time we pray, especially remembering the intentions of each other during The Rosary. We were committed to praying for Uncle. Together we make up the large number of people that were praying for him!
I had just received a message that the miraculous and instantaneous healing of my husband’s Uncle, which saved his life and offered him a glimpse of salvation, was because of the Crusade Prayers, Masses and Rosaries offered by a group of Crusaders and all those who joined us around the world! And God in His Mercy heard and answered in the most miraculous way, bringing many blessings to Uncle along the way.
This could be any one of your families – our families. Do not delay. By joining in the Mission of Salvation, you unite your prayers to Jesus to Mankind Prayer Groups all over the world. Jesus’ remnant army has already been formed. Jesus wants us to help Him to save every single soul on earth, before He comes again to judge the Living and the Dead.
We shouldn’t be surprised. We must pray with conviction because Jesus Himself promised us miracles.”
“…These Crusade Prayer groups, when formed all over the world, will become the armour necessary to defeat the enemy in more ways than you can believe possible.
I will continue to give you the Gifts of new prayers,which bring with them special miracles. Without such intervention I could not save the souls I so desire….” ( See Book of Truth message on March 7, 2013 @ 11:05)
I now bequeath special powers and graces to all of you who adhere to My wishes to recite the Crusade Prayers. The signs will be given to all of you and miracles will take place. (See Book of Truth message March 5, 2013 @ 3:30pm)
