I’m pleased to share this testimony with you:
L. and I, childhood sweethearts, found each other again 39 years later and we got engaged. We shared the same faith. God was present in our daily lives. In the garden, there was a cave with a statue of the Virgin where we would pray regularly.
For two years, L. struggled against three successive cancers with admirable courage, faith and dignity. She passed away.
God gives me the grace to overcome this terrible ordeal that I accept. My two-year struggle alongside L. took a great toll on my health and I had a nervous breakdown. My family in Mauritius helped me to heal and recover from it. There, someone told me about a retreat from Léandre Lachance and I was offered to follow it.
Weakened, I did not even know if I could attend it until the end. My fears were quickly dispelled at the first words of the host: “Leave your reason and your intellect in the cloakroom. Listen to your heart during these three days. If you are here today, it is because you have been chosen and called.” It was a revelation to discover these simple, direct and clear messages, transmitted not by an ordained person as it happens usually, but by a layman, a man from the corporate world who experienced trials and joys … in short, someone who’s a bit like me!
I was deeply touched in my heart. This retreat was followed by a thorough reading of the three volumes of the trilogy “For the Happiness of My Own, My Chosen Ones. Jesus”. I began to understand the Love of the Father, to receive Him totally, unconditionally, irrevocably, recognizing on the other hand our smallness, our weakness and our powerlessness. I understood the need for purification through the sacrament of reconciliation and the union of our sufferings with those of Jesus.
From there, things have changed in me. I became the beneficiary of exceptional graces and blessings which permitted me to welcome this great trial, but also to move towards my reconstruction and the strengthening of my faith. Reading these books has transformed my life. In a new language, we discover the Love God has for us and what He expects of us.
