Once again, I want to say thank you, because the Lord granted me the grace to see my two children reconciled after five years of silence.
I received the books of the trilogy “For the Happiness of My Own, My Chosen Ones. Jesus” as a gift. While reading them, answers came by themselves […]. An event presented itself and I recognized at once that it was a sign to test the sincerity of my “Yes”.
I read in a different way, I look at things in a different way and I understand in a different way. I, who lived in anxiety, I received immense joy when I gave my “Yes” to the Lord. This joy continues to inhabit me through the different events that would have caused panic in me before.
Jesus, You gave me everything! I received from You a heart filled with love for all and first for my parents that I always found harsh. I loved them and I tell them very loudly.
Once, on leaving the school chapel where I had praised and sung in tongues for an hour, I saw my pupils as I had never seen them before: beautiful, good, kind. A mad love for them sprang from my heart. It was You again, Jesus, who poured out all this love. Thank you!
On another occasion, Love sprang from my heart for my husband. After five years of marriage, I had nothing to say to him. Without Jesus, I would have left him. We made a retreat in silence and, there, you flooded me with love for him like never before. And then, all the rest of my life, I looked for You, I moved away from my deep heart where You invited me to meet You. Mary put me back on track. I said, “Jesus, give me your Mother” and it was she who guided me, until I received and read the volumes of the trilogy “For the Happiness of My Own, My Chosen Ones. Jesus” in 2004.
I found the way to meet You, my Jesus; the way of intimacy with You, of Your Love. I plunge all my distractions, my sins, the wounds inflicted on my husband and children into Your merciful Heart. I believe in You! You are the Way, the Truth and the Life. Thank you!
Blessed be the Eternal God who does wonders in the hearts of His children. Jesus loves us so much that His presence is confirmed daily in the hearts of those who welcome Him and have given their total Yes to the Lord. This is the case of our sister who saw her life completely transformed since she received volume 1 of the trilogy “For the Happiness of My Own, My Chosen Ones. Jesus”. She abandoned the life of domestic partnership she was living with a married man. This book, prayer and the practice of the Sacraments have since remained part of her daily routine. One day last year, her youngest son, who is married but who had distanced himself from God, was victim of a major accident that kept him in a coma for 41 days. Made aware of this tragic event, she began to pray day and night, invoking the Lord, saying: “Because Love loves you, you become Love.”
To the astonishment of the doctors, who were desperate about the situation, her son opened his eyes on the 41st day and he has since recovered all his faculties. During this ordeal, the mother testified of her faith in Jesus, Physician par excellence. Her son has a better life now and he has invited Christ in his life. This mother now asks the Lord that all her children give their “Yes” to Jesus. Moreover, a large family of Chosen of Jesus is taking root in this part of the country. A delegate recently came to Kinshasa to meet the priest for the second time. She wholeheartedly wishes to receive the volumes, tapes and other magazines of the Foundation. Again, we thank you for all that you are for us on this journey to meet with our Lord Jesus.
As a subscriber to the “Thought of the Day” email since a year and a half, I have seen my life change gradually. I give thanks to God! In order to respond to Love, I needed words to offer my personal Yes to God every day; and the prayer “My “Yes” for today” arrived in my inbox as a gift. Yes, it is a gift! I pray it every day with the Our Father, Hail Mary, and I read the readings of the day’s Mass. After years of difficult personal prayer, I finally feel great joy every morning when I wake up, because that’s when I pray.
I have already shared this prayer with five people who do not have Internet and I think that they also pray it every day. I think that the number of people subscribed to the “Yes” could easily be multiplied by five, because, in my opinion, I am not the only one to spread this prayer among my friends. And this is just the beginning […]. Thank you to the Spirit who inspired you this prayer and thank you for sharing it.
According to testimonials that I read on your website, the “Clickable Thoughts” seem to touch every person who reads them in a personal way. It happens to me too. There are also two “Weekly Rendezvous” videos that have grown my faith, comforted and enlightened me on the path to follow with Jesus. It seems to me that they were made just for me, and even the backdrop was involved! These “Weekly Rendezvous” are extraordinary.
Yesterday, during your Facebook Live, I shared with you a problem I was experiencing in my couple and you answered me on air. I was challenged by the word “forgiveness”. This morning I attended the Rosary Mass and prayer. I felt very strongly the need for the Sacrament of Reconciliation, after having invoked Mary to ask her to manifest herself before me and touch the heart of the priest, mine and that of my husband. The priest had five minutes to grant me, and that was enough to deposit the weight I bore in the Heart of Jesus! I felt a sweet emanation flowing over my heart … Jesus is victorious! Upon my return at home, I begged my husband for forgiveness with all my heart: this had never happened before. The forgiveness and mercy of God came upon us. My husband granted me his forgiveness and asked for mine as well. My tears flowed. Many obstacles have fallen and peace is finally there. Glory to God and thank you for your prayers.
The graces of the sacrament of marriage are powerful. I will no longer forget to rely on this sacrament in my couple and for other friends who experience difficulties. Yes, I am very small … and because Love loves us, we become Love.
A lady speaks to Léandre:
I had just lost my mother and, the day of her funeral, I broke my left hip. Later, while you were going to dedicate your book to me, I told you that I lived a time of trials by telling you about these events. And you answered me: “Not only is it a time of hardship, but you will live the best part of your life”. I was happy, but not necessarily convinced!
After your conference, which I really liked, I tried to read your first book on my way back home. To tell the truth, I did not plunge in it, starting it over again several times, finding it too repetitive. So I did not finish it. For three years, the events of my personal life have been rather happy. But three other deaths occurred in our family. Two of my brothers-in-law died, and my sister S. left us brutally. Sixth of the siblings, she is the first to join the Father.
The announcement of her death was a shock to all of us. However, by grace, I have the capacity to continue to cherish life today. At the age of 20, when my father died, also in a brutal way, I did not understand that life could stop around me.
The day after S.’s death, I was guided to take up your first book again. I read it with a lot of joy and I read it again because it speaks to me and reaches me deeply in my heart. This dialogue tells me with strength and clarity about the need to be humble, to let myself be filled by the omnipotence of Love. “Your Will be done” takes on its true dimension here, and you teach me to be more in tune with the Father. What a learning process!
A big thank you for this wonderful testimony that sounds so real. It is a precious teaching and, like you, I give my “Yes” to Jesus, and I’m looking forward to having the other two volumes to read!
Wholeheartedly with you and those around you in prayer.
Thank you – from the bottom of my heart – for this “Thought of the Day” that I receive and that makes me feel good. Every time, it is infinite love; there is never any reproach.
I have been married for almost 49 years. I have experienced physical and mental suffering for years: my husband was violent and he destroyed me morally. He is no longer violent, he has changed a lot, except about religion. Since I have retired, all my occupations are at the parish level, but my husband is jealous of God, he can’t stand that I’m involved outside our home.
Every day, I pray for his conversion and for me to behave fairly towards him. One day, I was told that I should have left. But I do not feel that God is expecting it from me. God does not seek the destruction of families. We have two daughters, the last one has two sons. When our daughters were teenagers, my husband behaved very badly towards them, but in the last ten years he has become sensitive and I think he has become aware of the harm he has done to them. We often have our grandchildren at home, he is an admirable grandfather and the children are very attached to him. We host a family meal once a month, our daughters and sons-in-law get along well and it’s a real pleasure to be together around the table. I tell myself that staying was the right choice, my family would have been destroyed.
There are times when I trust God and tell myself that, someday, my husband will eventually convert. At other times, I get discouraged and I think that it will not change. Every day, I make my consecration to Mary and I also consecrate my husband, my daughters and my grandchildren. Mary does not abandon people She is entrusted with.
A few days prior to my hospitalization, B. proposed a book exchange and she gave me volume 3 of the trilogy “For the Happiness of My Own, My Chosen Ones. Jesus “.
Bedridden at the hospital, I discovered the calls of a God of Love. He invites me to enter in a state of surrender and humility, to recognize my frailties and my powerlessness. He invites me to hand it all over to Him through my successive consents in all circumstances, to open my heart to His Love, to become Love and to be able to give Love to others.
I experienced great peace and serenity through my health issues. I understood how all sufferings offered in communion to those of Christ are a source of grace for ourselves and those who suffer in our immediate environment. They contribute to the edification on Earth of the new civilization of Love evoked by John Paul II. I experience how God respects my freedom and my choices and how much He needs my “Yes” to be in position to act. If, like Mary, my “Yes” is complete, then I meet a God who speaks to me and who acts today! A God who does what He says, to whom I can give everything – my failures as well as my successes – and who, in the invisible dimension, reaches the hearts of many.
In the past, I was convinced that the generous actions on my part granted me a status as a committed and responsible Christian. I now experience how important it is to place God at the top of priorities, to live increasingly in a condition of deep intimacy with Him, to meet Him through reconciliation, through the Eucharist and through prayer. In that manner, I receive His Love which transforms me and I allow God to act through me for the happiness of those around me.
You seek a better and more fulfilling life? Then, take a leap of faith in trust! Go forward and greet He who knocks at your door to fulfill you with His love.
