I would like to thank Léandre Lachance because, thanks to his video conferences, which I had the great chance to follow in Mauritius, I received the great gift of faith after saying a great “Yes”. Since then, my life has changed! Thanks to you and the books “For the Happiness of My Own, My Chosen Ones. Jesus”, I’m in a state of jubilation.
Yesterday, during a meeting of a prayer group, one of the hosts compared our situation to a family car of which we are the main driver and of Jesus, a hitchhiker we choose or not to welcome aboard and to whom we ask to get out whenever it suits us or, dare I say, when He disturbs us. After all, we are free!
This morning, when I turned on my computer to read the message of the day, I burst out laughing joyfully as I read, “Look how I have guided and driven you from the outset”! We were on the same page!
“That’s right, Lord. I feel that You have always been near me and I thank You, but I realize that I still firmly hold the wheel of my life. It’s hard for me to trust you. I prefer to be in the driver’s seat of the car; it’s very difficult for me to be driven by someone else. I am often scared! This image really speaks to me.
So, today, Lord, I beg you: help me in my weakness and my fears. May my “Yes” no longer be a timid one, but a frank and massive reply, for I have heard Your call to trust You, and I really want to answer it. Today, I let you be the only driver of my car.”
Today, I had the grace to witness a real sign from Jesus. It’s so strong that I want to share my joy and my great gratitude with you. Without the transformation being made in me by the constant meditation of the volumes of the trilogy “For the Happiness of My Own, My Chosen Ones. Jesus”, I could not have seen the presence of Jesus so clearly.
During one of my guided tours, someone asked me what edition of the Bible she could read. I suggested the Jerusalem Bible to her and, today, here is what she wrote to me: “Imagine that on Easter Eve, at church, a gentleman approached me and told me: “I offer this to you.” It was the Jerusalem Bible in its full text! I’m starting to read it.”
I am a little tired at the moment, and in doubt about the continuation of my working life. I really want to deepen my spirituality and devote more time in the vineyard of the Lord. This morning, in prayer, I received the message # 51 of Volume 1, and with this email from my visitor, it was the confirmation that, for the time being, I must remain in this profession as guide-interpreter because Jesus can pass through me to touch people, despite my imperfections. To see him act filled me with great joy and I share it with you!
Keep Father A. and our Community of Love and Sharing in your prayers […]. I can testify that the Lord is at work. Our lives are not easy, but we know we can count on each other. It’s amazing to see how far we’ve come!
God is good! Since I subscribed to the “Thought of the Day”, I have not finished discovering how great God is. He speaks to me every day and in a direct way; I question myself and I mourn the fact that I can’t respond enough to His love. I also weep with joy at His great mercy: He knows so very well what I live, He answers all my questions and my doubts; He gives me so much assurance! I’m happy because He saved me and He forgave me everything. Thank you and glory be to our God who is so good!
A few days ago, I was convinced that I would not have a job for this year. As an assistant to the director in a school, I started to apply for employment insurance. Then, while reading the “Thoughts of the Day” of October 16 and 17, I said to myself: “If I don’t work this year, it is because the Lord has other surprises in store for me, I know He is there.” I then felt an incredible inner peace, all my worries went away. It was so joyful! Against all odds, I opened my mailbox today and found a large envelope containing a renewal of contract for my job. Phew! What happiness! You helped me to keep hope and it made me live with optimism. In addition, I had another good news about my health, which I had been waiting for over 12 years. The miracles of the Lord do not cease to manifest themselves!
Testimony of a religious person:
A big thank you for the beautiful gift of the entirety of the work that the Lord has accomplished through you with the volumes, CDs, audiocassettes and “Thoughts of the Day”. It’s much appreciated! It is a beautiful sign that you strive for the sanctification of the souls, the beloved ones of Jesus.
I have already started to nourish myself on Volume 1 of the trilogy “For the Happiness of My Own, My Chosen Ones. Jesus”. I knew about it, but I had not yet discovered its content. There were many other readings on my list. But this providential idea to offer us the complete kit of your productions as a gift did not leave me indifferent. I saw in it a sign from the Lord, a wink. Let me admit to you that I am thankfully surprised by the high quality of the Lord’s messages, both simple and profound, as well as the personal context in which you received them. These two dimensions make the reading very interesting and lively […] and I’m just getting started!
Shortly before Christmas, I became aware of the existence of new books for young people, couples and the elderly and I was interested in taking note of them to possibly suggest them to members of my family and other acquaintances, for the purpose of evangelization. I was waiting for the opportunity to received them as a gift, on my upcoming birthday. But the gift has already arrived! Providence is good, isn’t it? Thank you Lord! And thank you for your generous heart.
I followed a retreat with Mr. Lachance two weeks ago and bought two CDs that I listen to at least five times a day!
This morning, I had to undergo a medical examination. When an irregular mass was discovered, the doctor decided to do a biopsy right away. I did not expect that, but I was prepared in prayer and in song. So, I gave my three “Yes” to littleness, to the will of the Father and to all the graces He wants to give me.
The Lord allowed me to feel no pain during the surgery, but the most beautiful was the gift He kept for the end. I had to go back for another exam before leaving and the young woman who came to pick me had a beautiful pink flower in her hair as well as a pink vest … and I love pink! I put it everywhere, it gives me peace. I told her how beautiful I found her.
But that’s not all! The last gift is my encounter with an elderly man who is deaf and mute. Every time I see him in church, he shows me that I’m in his heart. Today he was sitting at the entrance of the hospital. When he saw me, he put his hand on his heart, then pointed me and motioned me to come to him. He took me in his arms, tightly and kissed my cheek … And I had just thought I was alone! It was Jesus Himself who took me on His heart. Thank you. Madly, I am loved!
Let us rejoice in the wonders of the Lord! Eternity won’t be long enough to say thank you! The action of God was at work during our retreat. Father Y. left delighted with his experience, and he intends to talk about it around him. He has not had such strong moments for a long time, he has also loved the teachings.
The Holy Spirit has been at work on a continuous basis. We even danced before meals by dancing around the table in joy to be together with the Lord. I’m honored to have been chosen for this beautiful and great mission, the work of the Lord!
One or two years ago, I ordered the three volumes of the trilogy “For the Happiness of My Own, My Chosen Ones. Jesus”. I was so touched by these words that I started talking to fellow parishioners who are also my friends. They ordered these volumes themselves and they were also touched.
I had a great desire to form a Community of Love and Sharing, but I think I was spending too much time thinking. I gave my “Yes” and, gradually, I let go and I said to the Lord: “If You want me to form a C.L.S. with some people, You decide where, when, how and with whom.” And so, for several months, nothing happened! I read and meditated the words of the book and when I was not feeling well, I asked the Lord to give me a word. Every time, it just corresponded to what I was living and that was the word I needed. I renewed my “Yes” every day. And then, a month ago, I submitted the idea of a meeting to two friends in my parish who also read the books. At first, I didn’t know how to do it, so I relied on the explanations about the C.L.S. contained in Volume 2.
We live in a small country village and we are fortunate to have at our disposal a small chapel with permanent worship. Last night, during our C.L.S. meeting, Jesus gave us message # 33 in Volume 1 and we were filled with joy.
I’ve just discovered your website and that’s why I would like to send you this little message to tell you that, halfway around the world, in New Caledonia, there is a small Community of Love and Sharing.
Because Love loves us, we become Love!
I want to thank you for these wonderful and personal messages I receive. As I return to Christ after more than 16 years of abandonment and misfortune, I understood that through all these years, He has never abandoned me.
To put my life in order requires lots of sacrifices from me, and I receive your words of encouragement as coming directly from Heaven.
