2B_13: My beloved child, do not waste time with the Enemy. Continue to look at Me, to look at My Mercy, My Joy, My Peace and My Love. It is by keeping your eyes focused on Me that you are more and more of a witness to My action and that you may be more and more useful to Me.
I’m one of those people who wait assiduously every morning for the “Thought of the Day”. Three years ago, I participated in a retreat with Léandre at the City of the Immaculate (Cité de l’Immaculée). I really took the messages seriously, but I still have an overwhelming, irresistible desire to read them and let myself be invaded by Love!
When I took part in the retreat, I was on the verge of depression and I was experiencing a great melancholy. My marriage was in great trouble, our children had turned against us, I could not see two of my grandchildren and, for me, my whole life seemed to be a complete failure. Our three daughters had left the house in a very painful way, my husband and I were constantly fighting. Yet, I had a life of prayer and a desire to do God’s Will.
Upon our return from the retreat, my husband and I read every day the “Thought of the Day”, and little by little, drop by drop, the situation has completely changed! But, above all, our hearts have changed, our couple has become more peaceful: tenderness drove away all misunderstandings, judgments, anxieties, quarrels, etc.
In the invisible, the Lord came to visit every member of our family. At Christmas, we were all together and we were happy.
1E_27: My child, hand over to Me your joys and sorrows, your occupations and preoccupations, your successes or your failures. Place everything in My Heart. You must be freed from everything to enter into My Love, which wants to take up the whole space.
I heard about the book “For the Happiness of My Own, My Chosen Ones. Jesus” during a pilgrimage to Belgium. I immediately wanted to get a copy and read it. I now have the three volumes and they are a great comfort to me. In recent years, I lived a great ordeal. I had lost contact with one of my daughters. She had abandoned all her family, moved to Africa, came back, but she found herself in a difficult situation. After reading the first volume, I gave my irrevocable “Yes” for everything and for my loved ones. Since then, I have made contact with my daughter. She is still struggling, but her situation is improving. I trust Jesus for her future. Through this “Yes” I gave to Jesus, I see His action in the heart and the behavior of my children. My prayer is a continuous thanksgiving, it is a pleasure to feel loved by our Lord Jesus.
1A_32: My child, place your trust in Me without seeing or knowing where I am leading you. You have so much proof that I love you, that I want what is best for you. You are My chosen one, I am your Guide; do not be afraid, have no fear. I am here. I love you and I protect you. What more do you want? Please answer Me!
My heart is overflowing with joy for the beautiful prayer shared in Volume 1 of the trilogy “For the Happiness of My Own, My Chosen Ones. Jesus” on pages 202 and 203, in order to be constantly connected to Love, thanks to our breathing. I said it with the desire that it be accepted, and I want to say it and repeat it to Love… to become Love.
1D_15: My child, come back as a tiny little child to let yourself be guided, loved, fulfilled and cherished. Behold, that is the way of Love, and it is also the way that you can hear the Father’s voice and see Him at work. Abide in My Love... you are My friend... I love you.
I am so happy to be a Chosen One of Jesus and to receive a message every morning! My heart overflows with gratitude to Jesus and also to Léandre Lachance who makes us discover the greatness of the love of God, by agreeing to write what Jesus inspires him.
My life has changed since I receive these messages and that I read every day a passage from the books “For the Happiness of My Own, My Chosen Ones. Jesus.” If the world knew what source of love these messages contain and how easy it is to hand over everything to God – since He gave us all we have – the face of the Earth would be transformed.
I am full of gratitude to God for so much love and kindness, I who am a sinner that did not deserve so much attention.
1F_18: My child, look at how I have guided you and how I have been leading you your entire life… The more you look at what I have accomplished in the past, the more you are able to see what I am accomplishing in the present, and the more you are able to place your trust in Me for the future. That is how you can surrender yourself to Me. I love you.
Testimonials of a retreat with the Chosen Ones of Jesus in Baillet – Summer 2011
In the middle of summer, in this plain, cradle of France, we came, like a small cosmopolitan flock, from East and West, filled with great hope. For three days, we listened, thirsting for truth, to an authentic messenger, Léandre Lachance, from Canada. In the comings and goings of the curious visitors who came to seek Peace at the foot of Our Lady, the words of Léandre vivified our souls. With the only commitment that counts, that of our whole lives, we have given thanks for this time of deep joy.
M-T. : I was touched by the simplicity, common sense and bright words of Léandre, our Canadian grandfather, who led us to live the Gospel with him. Jesus is near: He takes care of every detail and our little life interests him.
J.: During these three days, I felt good because I was welcomed …
M.: The site of Notre-Dame-de-France has been a place of great peace for me. I really appreciated the presence and words of the accompanying priest.
O .: When we arrived at Baillet on the site of Notre-Dame-de-France, on Wednesday evening around 8 p.m., our first impression was the deep peace that seized, invaded and brought an inner well-being in us. Yes, peace is palpable in this place. Thank you Lord for this place of grace, peace and deep joy!
D.: While attending the retreat given by Léandre, I had the impression to see and hear a prophet of modern times. I did an experiment: on the second day, Léandre asked us to isolate ourselves, to meditate on the questions of our life, then to ask for the help of Jesus and to open the book “For the Happiness of My Own, My Chosen Ones. Jesus” at random. Léandre told us that Jesus would answer us through the message thus discovered and I had the answer to my questions. I was even very surprised by the response of Jesus who was, in a way, a description of my life […] I read volume 1 and I started volume 2.
C.: First of all, I was impressed by the beauty of the site, where everything involved prayer and meditation. These three days spent with Léandre gave me more strength, but also more hope to continue to walk. And it is in joy and lightness that I left literally carried. Another big thank you to Léandre for this rich teaching.
L.: This retreat was, as I was coming out of convalescence, a corner of blue sky and a spiritual adventure with Our Lady and Léandre. We need his humor, his good mood. His teachings are always relevant, well organized, full of common sense, coherent. There was also a lot of interaction with the participants, especially during meals. By the grace of God, we had a young African priest among us and he celebrated Mass. We also had the chance to get to know the persecuted Eastern Christians and to attend Mass in their beautiful Chaldean church, in Aramaic – the language of Jesus. I felt like I was away on a trip, full of friendship and spirituality.
J-C. : I was happy to spend these three days near Léandre, because I am amazed to see him talk like this, without notes and without boring his audience. His teaching is relevant and full of common sense. I liked the atmosphere and I met interesting people, including Eastern Christians. It made us feel good to have lunch together, which allowed exchanges.
