It is good to read the “Thought of the Day” before starting my daily activity! This morning, the Lord is repositioning me, because – as my wife reminds me occasionally – I generally act without thinking first. Fortunately, God takes care of me and reminds me that He does not take up more space than I give Him.
I would like to thank you very much for having given your “Yes” to the Lord because, thanks to you, thousands of “Yes”, including mine, have been given throughout the world.
Having faith and being a practicing Catholic, I was always looking for what it was that was blocking me, making me doubt since childhood. I lived in fear, always anxious and very negative about everything. In short, I hated myself and wondered how to love my neighbor as myself, if I did not love myself. Despite these sufferings for so many years, thanks to the Lord, I am here today, surrounded always by my children and grandchildren.
Nearly a month ago, during a meeting with an acquaintance of mine, we talked about our little sufferings and it is at that moment that she suggested I participate in a retreat that she herself followed the previous year. She gave me the address of the website of the Foundation of the Chosen Ones (Fondation des Choisis de Jésus).
The same day, I am quick to connect to your website. I’m touched by your conferences, I begin reading the first volume of the trilogy “For the Happiness of My Own, My Chosen Ones. Jesus” and I’m already transformed. I see the action of our Lord and to confirm all this, I’m lucky to be registered, with my wife, for the retreat that is organized this weekend on the spirituality of the Chosen Ones.
These are very intense moments of peace, joy and liberation. I feel liberated, overwhelmed with the joy of feeling loved by our Father. I feel like I’m living a new life. Thank you Lord.
What a journey it has been for me since I read the books “For the Happiness of My Own, My Chosen Ones. Jesus”! Today, I accept to carry the cross, whereas I refused it before. The “Thought of the Day” has become necessary and helps me to say “Yes” every morning. Thank you also for the words explained at every “Weekly Rendezvous”.
Thank you for bringing me, with the help of the Holy Spirit, the Thoughts of every day, which are a balm of life. It reminds me that God is present in all the details of the life of those who trust in Him. The messages are always timely and prove to me the depth of the love of which I am filled.
I express my gratitude for the immense benefit associated with the messages of “For the Happiness of My Own, My Chosen Ones. Jesus.” We, who are in therapy, need to hear that Jesus loves us madly. These messages are our best assurance, because they give us the certainty that God saves us and loves us. We are precious to His eyes!
Yesterday was a special day for our family: our eldest son would have turned 15 years old. My husband had taken leave and we were together as a family at the seaside. But the weather was bad, I was sad and my husband annoyed. It was one of those days when nothing goes right! Finally, I turned on the television and we came across a movie which story was similar to our situation: a couple who lives the challenge of the death of their little boy; the story happens on the day of his birthday; the parents in pain are hurting each other, etc. Already, at that moment, I said to myself, “My sweet Jesus, you are here! “
The rest of the movie tells the story of the arrival of a guardian angel, that of the big sister who seems not to exist in the eyes of her mother following the death of her brother, and how the angel ends up reuniting the torn family. This film was a wink from the Lord, it upset us, my husband, our youngest son and me. We ended the day united, in peace and accompanied by the love of God for us. “It’s because Love loves us that we become Love.”
At a retreat with you, we were invited to pick a message from a basket, among many others. The message I received spoke of “the efficacy of the ministry of holy angels”. It was something I had never realized until this retreat. Since then, I speak about it to the people around me and I cannot stop receiving winks from the Lord.
God bless you and may your guardian angels protect you.
At the beginning of 2006, I received a copy of the Latvian translation of the book entitled: “For the Happiness of My Own, My Chosen Ones – Jesus” by Léandre Lachance. It was the first of a trilogy of books that Léandre had written in French under this title. The Latvian translation was still in handwritten format and the translator had kindly requested me to assess it.
To assess copies of a religious nature is not a piece of cake. As a Metropolitan Archbishop nominated by the Most Holy Father, I must read each and every text very carefully, with the greatest precaution and the highest sense of responsibility – both towards the author and the people who may read his books.
In any case, I avoid giving my opinion regarding the supernatural character of these messages transmitted by Léandre throughout his books. I only certify that there is nothing in these writings that contravene the Christian faith and good mores and that, given so, these books may be recommended for reading.
At the very beginning of volume 1 (in the third dialogue dated November 11, 1996), Jesus talks to Léandre, thereby asking the following from him:
“Do you accept to be for Me the one who lives only for Me? And who renounces to his own well-being, image, reputation, and thoughts, especially?!”
I immediately understood that these words not only applied to the “little” Léandre (like Jesus calls him in all three volumes), but also to me, personally, and to any other person willing to establish a close relationship with God.
These are keywords. Am I ready to give my “Yes” to Jesus, although it requires major sacrifices from me, even if I had to suffer in the process and even if I had to deprive myself from everything important and close to me?
It is a significant choice indeed but, should the reader decide to reply “Yes” to Jesus, he will then receive and accept the content of these three books with a heart full of joy. And then the message conveyed by these books would reach him deeply and personally.
I have met Léandre twice, once in 2008 and once in 2009, while he was sojourning in Latvia to give conferences and preside retreats. During our last meeting, he thanked me warmly for having given my imprimatur, or “the Church’s consent for the publication” of the Latvian translation of the three books that he had written.
“How would I not have done so?” I replied to him, “I don’t see anything in these books that would contravene the teachings of the Holy Scriptures.”
I am convinced that during the next few years the demand will keep increasing for these three books written by Léandre and that many future generations will keep reading them. The spreading of these books worldwide will definitely not happen in the same manner as for best sellers which enjoy a sudden rise in popularity before they go out of fashion as quickly.
In my opinion, the fact that Léandre’s writings come from an inner inspiration makes them even more meaningful. I don’t doubt that the moving dialogue between Léandre and Jesus will inspire many more people and strengthen their faith and ties with God.
The books written by Léandre make it clear to us that we cannot be truly happy otherwise than by giving and receiving Love. It is not possible to receive happiness neither through glory nor through wealth, nor through belongings, nor through many other things to which we grant great value in today’s world.
These books speak of God like Love. How can one communicate more clearly to humankind the great Love that God feels for each of us? I invite every single reader of these three volumes to accept God’s Love, to love one another with all his heart and to become a creature of Love.

Testimony of a nun:
Congratulations! You have different ways to promote the messages of Jesus.
The volumes of the trilogy “For the Happiness of My Own, My Chosen Ones. Jesus” inspire me and make me grow in intimacy with Jesus, Mary and the Trinity. I allow Jesus to transform me more and more. I see the wonders that the Lord does in me, around me and in the world […] So, my hope and my faith increase and I feel loved by God.
Thank you for the wonders that Jesus does through you with the promotion of these Thoughts.
I’m Lebanese, and I recently discovered, through the Holy Spirit, your Foundation and website. I’ve downloaded Mr. Lachance’s books and the book by Mr. Fourchaud. Reading them fills me with an indescribable joy and peace.
Every morning, I discover with haste the “Thought of the Day”, because I am convinced that it is addressed to me, that it is the Lord’s message for me. I sometimes read it twenty times a day, whenever anguish torments my heart.
The “Prayer to say Yes,” as well as all the other prayers published on the website, help me move forward in life, to rise when I feel that everything is collapsing. In a word, this website brings me comfort and hope that I do not find elsewhere. That’s why I thank you with all my heart.
Thank you to Jesus and thank you to you who introduced us to Jesus through your writings. My life has changed since I give my Yes to Jesus every day. I have regained the sense of tranquility of my childhood regarding life, like when I was a child and my parents were there to take care of everything. I loved my parents, my brothers and my sisters. For me, life was beautiful, sweet and serene. It is this feeling that I have just found! My heart belongs to Jesus forever.
