The prayer “My “Yes” for today”: a gift

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.

The effectiveness of the guardian angels

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.

The most beautiful year of my life

Someone writes to Léandre:

Today is a very special day for me. A year ago, I experienced a very important encounter that was somehow related to you. That’s why I would like to share with you my gratitude for what happened. Last year, on August 24, you were in Latvia and you presided a retreat in our parish. I did not know about it and I had not planned to attend. Divine Providence had other plans. I was walking along the Mara Pond when I “accidentally” met people I knew who were going to the retreat. They invited me to come along with them. I told myself: “Okay, I’m going to listen a bit.” I came to this retreat without suspecting that it would be so providential for me and without being aware of the graces which were being prepared for me. Everything went as usual – praise, then teaching, joyfulness and a sense of unity. Your testimony challenged me and warmed my heart, especially the fact that the Lord calls you “my little one” and the way He expresses His love by words like “I love you tenderly, madly! » I had never heard that someone could live such intimacy with God, although I felt in my heart this love which was very tender and madly passionate at the same time. That scared me and made me confused, for I thought there was perhaps something wrong with me. I was too shy to talk about it, because in my opinion, relationships with God had to be distant. So, as if in a sort of astonishment, I continued to participate in the retreat until the moment (I do not remember what was happening at that time) when, looking at Jesus in the painting at the altar, I began to feel such a river of Love separating me from what was going on around me. I felt that I was melting like a piece of yellow butter in the Sun of God’s Love. I felt very well, but suddenly, in this piece of butter, I noticed that there were black spots, such as tea seeds, which appeared during the melting and became more evident. I didn’t like it and I realized that the Lord was showing me my unconfessed sins. These contrasting visions were so striking! The feeling of infinite happiness while melting in the Sun of the Love of God and the consciousness of my sinfulness …
I wanted to go to confession right away, but how could I? There were only Catholic priests whom I dared not approach, for at that time I still belonged to the Lutheran Church. “By chance,” I saw the priest who once came to a meeting at the Lutheran High School where I was studying. At least, I knew his name and I knew some people he knew and to whom I could have referred if necessary. I was encouraged to go to him and present him my desire to confess. The priest said he could listen and pray for me. That was enough for me, because I knew that I was revealing my sins to God Himself; and although, as a Lutheran, I could not receive absolution, I thought that God had heard me. After pouring out my heart before God, I returned to the hall to come back to the program of the retreat, where the Love of God was already waiting for me with a sentence that was decisive to me. I heard him say to me: “Dear little girl, you only have to eat crumbs, come and sit at the table!” It was so clear that I understood at once that I was called to join the Church: the door was open! It was up to me to decide whether to enter through it or not.
What followed took place like if it was in an accelerated movie. I went back to the priest with the desire of “talking business” now. Unfortunately, I was so overwhelmed that I don’t remember anything about what we talked about. I probably told him about my experience with faith. I remember one sentence: the priest asked me if I knew how the conversion went to another confession, and I answered “no”. At the end of this interview, we had already agreed on a date: September 8, the birthday of the Mother of God. On that day, I said “Yes” in the Catholic Church.
I’m very happy and grateful. Through this event, I found my spiritual home, a sense of belonging to the parish and the possibility of living in unity at the table of the Church, with Communion. This year has been the happiest of my life, for I have received so much love that I can’t even remember the winter conditions: for me, a permanent spring rejoiced me with the smell of its blooming flowers.
Without realizing it, you, Léandre, became a person that is dear to me and for whom I have gratefulness and prayers in my heart.

This Word is alive

I took part in your retreat with a very small group in Delémont (Switzerland) in August. For some time, I have been asking the Lord to find me another job instead of being engaged in Church. I mainly take care of catechesis for the children. You confirmed to me that the Lord wants me in this place. In fact, I started my new pastoral year last September, but for the first time, it was without fear, in a spirit of peace and assurance.
Last week, I took some thought cards with me for catechism. At the time of the prayer, every one of the 9-year-old took a card and they were able to read it to others. At the end of the catechism, a child came to my house and said to me: “This word on this card, it is truly alive; it has been several days since I ask Jesus if it is true that He is always with me and the card gave me the answer.” This is a little wink from the Lord.

Witness of the Love of God

I have Parkinson’s disease and the disease is at an advanced stage. However, I rely on the Lord in everything I live. There is nothing that gives peace and consolation as much as struggling and suffering according to the Will of God. I have much to thank the Lord for all His graces, since from Mary to Saint John and other saints up to the three books “For the Happiness of My Own, My Chosen Ones. Jesus”, I have not deserved anything. My Thought for each day is from Volume 1, Number 114: “Thank you, Jesus, for so much love. Yes, I am very small […] Yes, I know that You love me […] Yes, I welcome Your graces […] Yes, I let myself be loved and filled […] I love you […]. “
I really like the Thoughts of the Lord. Having read it in the books, I know that He really calls me to Love, because He already loves me a lot. I want to live this call to Love for the glory of God and the salvation of souls.

A book that makes you feel better

I ordered the book “The Happiness of Old Age” to give it to my mother who is deeply religious and who has been living alone for 14 years. She is an 83 years old widow. She has devoured the book, she finds it very easy to read and very beautiful. It did her a lot of good, because she often told me that it was not very beautiful to grow old, realizing that only few years were remaining in one’s life. I give glory to God for everything.

Healed and Transformed

Jesus performed wonders in me when I gave Him my “Yes”. I’m a living witness of His love. I experienced great suffering, resulting from the death-suicide of my husband and of one of my sons, which occurred later. I suffered from a severe depression that required intensive treatment.
Friends of mine lent me volumes 1 and 2 “For the Happiness of My Own, My Chosen Ones. Jesus”. The Lord took the lead for my healing. Upon reading the first book, I began to experience a great transformation of my whole being. I gave Him my “Yes” in all areas of my life. Jesus is my Savior! I experience a great intimacy with Him. Through His Holy Spirit, He brings to my attention the love of the Father and His great mercy for every one of His children. What joy, what happiness, and what limitless gratitude is it to know God is so close to us! Jesus fills me with His love, His joy of life and His presence even in the smallest detail.

A beautiful discovery

My mother having passed away two years ago, I found myself in her house, which was up for sale, when I came across a plastic bag containing CDs. The whole family had taken the furniture, papers and valuables, but I was not interested in those things.
I took this bag, in which I found classical music CDs and a green disc, bearing no indication. On the way back home, I listened to this CD, it was the conference given by Léandre Lachance in Pontmain, in Belgium, in October 2001.
I was surprised, but interested in the casual and comprehensible aspect of the speaker, especially since I was an insurance broker myself. I went to your website and I downloaded the book “For the Happiness of My Own, My Chosen Ones. Jesus”. Since then, I carefully read a message every day, before I meditate it in my heart. For me it is difficult, because I call upon my mind more than my heart. Today, I understand better why, despite my desire to meet God, I have not yet really met him. Until then, when I wake up at night, I take pleasure in continuing to read this book.

Heaven is opening for me

Four years ago, I read the first book “For the Happiness of My Own, My Chosen Ones. Jesus” and I gave my “Yes”. The Lord has transformed my heart and I accept all changes with love, since it is Him who decides. I attended a conference of the Chosen Ones, which confirmed and consolidated what I had learned from my reading. Since then, I have found work after five years of unemployment.
I’m currently reading the second volume and I discover something new with each passage. When I meet a new person, I say, “Because you are Love, you become Love”. I have the impression that Heaven is opening for me and that problems are resolving themselves, despite the difficulties.
I keep on promoting this work, thanks to the small cards containing the thoughts drawn from the volumes.

Finally accepting His love

God listens and responds to us. Over the last few days, I felt in my heart the need to testify about the goodness and action of the Lord. I was doing so when I read yesterday the “Thought of the Day: “Thank you for sharing with us the testimonies of our brothers and sisters in Jesus.” So, under the guidance of the Holy Spirit, I write to you!
For many years, through you, the Lord has been asking me to let myself be loved and filled with His love. I realized that giving love was easier for me than receiving it. I recently decided to accept it. The following day, I read in the “Thought of the Day” that the Lord was happy to see me finally accept His Love. I’m attending the “School of Love” and I accept to be corrected by Him.
He knows what is best for me, in His plan of Love. I realized that, very often, I had listened to my own will and that I was wrong, believing I was doing the right thing…
I was multiplying retreats and spiritual outings until I overdosed, burdened by fatigue, stress, exhaustion, ill-being, sadness, anxieties, etc. I was very physically hurt and as a result, I had to reduce the pace and even cancel what I had scheduled. Thank you, Lord, for opening my eyes. Subsequently, calm, joy and serenity returned. I asked Him for forgiveness for my attitude.
A few days ago, two concerns burdened my soul. I gave everything to Jesus and told Him that I trusted in Him, that I believed He had the solutions. Indeed, in the early morning and during the day, He took care of it for the best. His peace and joy returned in my heart and in my soul. Praise and thanks to You, my sweet Jesus, for all these graces.
