WE ARE AT THE DAWN OF THE MOST
BEAUTIFUL STORY OF THE WORLD
In order not to contravene the rules of writing, the sentence which title this column was not put in quotation marks. Yet it is a quote from … Jesus. In a sense, this sentence sums up the whole book: He is coming, He is here, He is knocking on our door and waiting for our “yes” to enter. But beware, if you open, it’s a tornado of Love that comes in with Him. Knock Knock knock! Is someone there ?
FOR THE HAPPINESS OF MY OWN,
MY CHOSEN ONES, JESUS (TOME 1)

I have in front of me the letter of a subscriber of “L’INFORMATEUR catholique” and “fervent” reader of this chronicle. In this missive, Ms. R. from Saskatchewan “complains” that the Lord is “silent” with Canadians. She “sees” that the Lord is voluble in the United States, England, France and all over the world, but nothing here!
Well! My dear Mrs. R. (and all others who made the same complaint in their hearts), here is one of the Lord’s answers.
Yes, I say ONE of the Lord’s answers. Because the Lord speaks to Canadians (including, of course, Quebeckers). I receive press releases from many people who are aware of the Lord’s “confidences” to certain privileged people of this great country and I can tell you that He loves to confide. And what He says is great.
But all these “communications” are not “publishable”, because they are “private”, that is to say that they concern only the recipients and their relatives.
On the other hand, there are others which are “for all” but that one does not edit because one is afraid to be mistaken and to deceive the others. “Laudable” hesitations but which deprive us of precious words of encouragement and hope in these difficult times we are going through.
I take my hat off to the publisher of the book listed here who had the audacity to publish it. I also thank the Lord for putting people on the author’s road, such as Father David, his spiritual director, who signs the foreword, and Father Guy Giroux, who signs the preface.
But most of all, I thank “the author” for being “small” enough to allow the Lord to pass through him. I know that he would have preferred that his name not appear on the book (he had even asked Him), but he did what the Lord asked him: “I want the person to agree to disappear to give Me all the space. As much as I want him to be clearly identified, with all the advantages and disadvantages that it can create, both for the message and for himself, it is certain that you will have to suffer from it. To accept to become another Christ, it is also to accept to suffer. You always have the freedom to withdraw or to hide yourself, but I, I express My will clearly to you. “
For those who do not know the author, it is enough for you to know that he is a man of prayer (community and solitary) for several years. And if he publishes this book, it is not for a question of money (he is comfortable), but because it is the Lord who asked him. And this book is for everyone: Canadians and others. His Chosen Ones.
In this book, what does the Lord say to us? First, the “regulars” of J.N.S.R, Françoise, Jean-Marc, Lucie etc., will not be disoriented. They will recognize the voice of the Good Shepherd which is loud and clear! They will recognize the language of the Love of the Father who desires that this Love spreads all over the earth and transforms all His children.
Then, as in all recent phrases, He warns us that His coming is soon, very soon: “More than ever I am looking for little hearts to build this society of Love able to welcome Me during My great return which is for very soon. ” (I emphasize this) (…) “Very soon, there will be only pure hearts on this earth, they will be by their” yes “, helped by the” yes “of others, or by the great tribulations that will purify this earth. “
Yes, indeed, he’s coming. We know it. We feel it. Simply by looking at the “signs of the times” (wars, violence, desacralization, unbridled sexuality, etc.), we can see that “normality” has given way to a kind of spiritual anarchy that reverberates in all spheres of our society and our planet.
Yes, but still? What we just said in the paragraph above, we already knew. We did not need another book to repeat it to us. So why another book?
What’s special about it? It’s the message, it’s the tone, it’s Him! It is He, the Lord! He who wants to prepare us to receive Him. And to receive it, so that love can spread on earth, the evil must disappear: “As there is only one way to drive out the darkness, that is to put the light there, likewise there is only one way to hunt evil, to put love in it.
But as human love does not impose itself, neither does Divine Love! God cannot force us to love Him. He would betray the gift of FREEDOM that He has given us. He wants us to come to Him “freely”. With all that we are. In fact, He wants our “yes”.
This is the essence of Jesus’ message in this book. Jesus is coming back soon and He wants hearts purified by Love to welcome him and make him known:
“The Father’s decision is firm: Love must flow on earth as it does in heaven.
So that Love can circulate freely, it cannot coexist with evil. Evil must disappear.
As evil dwells in the hearts of men and women, it is the hearts that must be purified.
The Father always respects the great freedom He has given to His children on the earth. A heart cannot be violated, it can only be seduced. “
There ! In this book, Jesus tries to seduce us so that we offer him our “yes”. He suffers from the fact that very few people agree to be loved by Him. That’s why He needs our “yes” to transform us, to purify us, to love us:
“The first ‘yes’ you have to give is to accept that God loves you.
The second ‘yes’ is to love you as God has created you.
Subsequently, these are “yeses” to cut the tethers caused by the Enemy and to enter more into the Heart of God. The path of Love is simple and easy for the person who commits himself totally.
The great difficulty lies in the fact of engaging fully and completely, because it supposes the renunciation of the path of the world.”
But we are so “grown-up” that we have a hard time relying on another. We prefer to decide for ourselves what to do and where to go. We are “little bosses” and we do not accept being told how to lead our lives.
Yet with Him it would be so simple. It is enough to recognize that He is the Father Almighty and that we are His little children … helpless. Exactly like a little baby. “By himself, he cannot do anything, not even get to eat or drink, he has to expect everything from his mother.
At the same time that he receives what he needs for his body, he receives for his heart, soul and spirit: love. It is his physical impotence that allows him to receive the love that is indispensable to the development of his whole being.
It’s the same for everyone who reads these lines. It is by your helplessness before an Almighty God that you must expect everything from Him. By acknowledging your helplessness, by accepting everything from Him, you receive the most beautiful, the greatest, the most important gift that you will never finish unpacking: Love! “
A high risk book
Here, I must make you a confidence. Since I read this book a few weeks ago, I took the risk of saying “yes” to Jesus. As He had requested. And I got caught … by Love. Yes ! It works !!!
I gave him my “yes” for everything, the joys, the sorrows, my work, my ministry, and even for all the little details of my work and my life.
From that moment on, I decided, as He had asked, to “expect everything from Him.” Ask all of Him. To welcome everything, to accept everything, good or bad, joy, peace, love, pain and suffering as coming from Him. To give everything to Him so that the heart may be completely cleared to allow itself to be transformed and become Love. “
And if you read this book in your turn, I would like to warn you that you too run high risks of being caught by Love. You take the risk to let yourself be transformed by his Love and spend the rest of your life telling him “yes”. And if that happens to you, do not tell me I did not warn you.
But that’s still what I wish for you!
Yes or no, decide!
Once again, the Lord deigns to lean toward His children and send them another love letter. How long will this privileged relationship last? The answer is in the Heart of the Father (Jesus). But, no matter the date, it is that He loves us! And this book is (once again) proof.
FOR THE HAPPINESS OF MY OWN,
MY CHOSEN ONES, JESUS (VOLUME 2)

2000 -210 pages
Before reading this book, I prayed to the Spirit to open my heart and to let my spirit be guided by His. And do you know how I felt at that moment? It’s as if an invisible hand was wrapping me in a big comforter and a voice was saying to me: “Settle in and read in peace.” And that’s what I did.
It would be wrong to say that I was not eager to read the rest of the Lord’s love letter to His children. I often asked the publisher: will there be a sequel?
I had seen and heard so many wonders that the Lord had fulfilled in hearts, with the first volume, that I hoped that the post office of Heaven was not already closed …
But Jesus knows that His children are so fragile and that the enthusiasm of the moment evaporates so fast that He wanted to continue kindling the Fire He Himself lit in hearts with “His” first book.
And that is why He desired to send us a few stamped missives, drawn directly from His Father’s Heart.
And what letters He sends us! It’s the kind of love letters that you keep on your heart and that you read often. Like the soldier who has gone far away reading the letters of his fiancée who stayed in the country.
During breaks, between shelling, he takes them out and gets drunk with them in order to find peace in the face of the horrors of war. He imagines and dreams of a happy reunion at the end of hostilities.
With this book, the Lord does the same thing. Faced with the follies of this world that are distressing and often discouraging us, He wants to tell us that, to get through this ultimate war that is currently unfolding between Heaven and Hell, we must turn to Him and give Him our YES if we do not want to leave our skin behind … and our soul.
AND WITH THIS “YES” …
What do you think He will do with our poor little YES? He will do wonders. First, our selfish little YES, once returned to His Heart, is first purified by the fire of His Love and then returns to invade the earth to spread Love wherever there is doubt, fear, war etc. That’s what He wants and can do with our YES.
And to invite us not to delay to give it, He repeats to us that His Kingdom is near: “My little one, My beloved children, be joyful and glad, lift up your head because the Kingdom of God is very close. There is only a tiny veil that prevents you from seeing this Kingdom. It is the transformation of your being that prepares you for this great entrance. The gateway is your heart. What debunks this door are your unconditional and irrevocable YES. “
And Jesus, like a true mother, tells us not to worry about it and to stay in peace with Him, because the Father knows what He is doing: “My little one, you are closer and closer to the great ones events that will lead you inside this New Society guided by a New Church, that is to say, completely renewed. Are without fear, because all these events will be under the control of the Father. He planned everything, no detail will escape him. “
My wish at the end of this recension is that this book becomes a spark and that it ignites in turn all those who read it, and that in turn, they transmit this fire to those around them so that Heaven is so full of ” unconditional and irrevocable YES “, that Saint Peter pulls his hair out because he does not know where to put them. So, is it YES or NO?
“Do not be afraid, I take care of everything!”
The title of this column came to me after praying to the Spirit to give me HIS suggestion. When He inspired me with the phrase that tops this text, I was not at all surprised. For, when I read the book that I present to you now, my heart told me that by giving our YES to the Lord, we really have nothing to fear … since we trust Him. This is surely the message that Jesus wants to give to those who read this volume. So, do not be afraid and let yourself … be loved!
FOR THE HAPPINESS OF MY OWN,
MY CHOSEN ONES, JESUS (VOLUME 3)
By Léandre Lachance,
Foundation of the Chosen Ones of Jesus
2002 -224 pages
Once again, magic has done its job. No, not Harry Potter’s but the “magic” of Love. The magic of Jesus. Yes, as for the two previous Volumes of Léandre Lachance: For the Happiness of My Own, My Chosen Ones. Jesus (volumes 1 and 2), the Lord was at the rendezvous. He was present (!), when I read the manuscript sent to me by Monsieur Lachance’s editor *, for a possible review.
As for the other two times, the Lord was speaking to me, personally! Whether in advice, warnings or declarations of love, I recognized the voice of the Good Shepherd, who spoke to me in the privacy of my room. In the intimacy of my heart.
With the many testimonies I have received from those who have read the first two volumes, I believe that all those who read the books of M. Lachance, with their heart, feel the same thing.
So, after turning the last page, I could only give thanks to the Lord for having, once again, deigned to lower himself to declare His love to us. This Love, which today seems to be welcomed by so few people.
And, I also gave thanks for the availability and simplicity of Mr. Lachance and, above all, that he agreed to be the spokesman of the Lord, despite all the inconvenience that this may entail. For him and his family.
This third volume is about the fulfillment of the promises: “What the Lord has promised to do, He does …” We find once more the same call to give our TOTAL, UNCONDITIONAL and IRREVOCABLE YES! And it is this YES that allows the Father to act, to realize His plan of Love for the world: “Blessed are you to be witnesses of God’s action, and have no fear of making His Action known around the world. The more His Action will be known, the more people will give their YES, the more people will be transformed, and the more space will be available for God’s Action on Earth. “
Seeing the rise of Evil around us and all over the earth, we want to turn to Heaven and shout, “Father, when will You come to clean up? Look in what direction your children are going. Act, Father! “
The Father is ready to act, to come to transform this dying world, but He needs our YES. Without our YES, his hands are tied. He can only resort to wishful thinking! But with our YES, everything is possible. He can transform everything.
Thanks to the already given YES, the Father has ALREADY begun the transformation, Jesus confirms it to us through Léandre Lachance: “My little one, the omnipotence of God’s love is presently at work. Only those who are in heaven can see the magnitude of the transformation that is taking place today: you, who are now living on earth, cannot see or even glimpse the transformation under way, so great is its scale and unprecedented power … “
And this transformation, we see it among other things in the report that the author made of his stay in Europe, last year, where he gave his testimony in front of some 2,400 people. And the letters he has received prove that the transformation is taking place. Hooray!
And it will continue if, by our YES, we accept everything that happens to us: happy things, like unhappy things. Because that is what it is to say YES! It is to accept everything: the beautiful and the least beautiful. Like Mary who accepted the joy of the Incarnation and the suffering of Golgotha. And without complaining.
Finally, I leave you with a word of hope:
“My little ones, rejoice, soon I will be there; lift up your head, believe in the Good News, come and warm yourself up in the fire of My Love Fire. Time is running out, convert. Let yourself be transformed and become boundless missionaries in the invisible, visible witnesses of My Love, My Peace and My Joy. I need you, you are precious to Me, your God. For all eternity, I love you. I burn with Love for each one of you. “
