God's Mercy Now



 Find several individual pages here.   The phenomenon represented on these pages either helped lead me back to the Church or strenthened my faith appreciably since my return to the Church. 

 I recently listened to a series of discussions of DIRECTIONS FOR OUR TIME, words of the Saints provided by Anne, a lay apostle from Ireland, who has been given the gift of prophecy.  Here is the first of some words of the Little Flower, St. Therese, for your discernment. Click twice to go to youtube where you can find the next parts of the video presentation.   I think you will find these messages helpful and comforting. First see a letter from her bishop, then the first part of the video message: 

To Whom It May Concern:
Direction For Our Times (DFOT) is a religious movement founded by "Anne," a lay apostle from our diocese who wishes to remain anonymous. The movement is in its infancy and does not as yet enjoy canonical status. I have asked a priest of the diocese, Fr. Darragh Connolly, to assist in the work of the movement and to ensure that in all its works and publications it remains firmly within the teaching and practice of the Catholic Church.

I have known "Anne," the founder of the movement, for several years.  She is a Catholic in good standing in the diocese, a wife and mother of small children, and a woman of deep spirituality. From the beginning, she has always been anxious that everything connected with the movement be subject to the authority of the Church. She has submitted all her writings to me and will not publish anything without my permission. She has submitted her writings to the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith and I have done so, as well. 

In so far as I am able to judge, she is orthodox in her writings and teaching. Her spirituality and the spiritual path that she proposes to those who wish to accept it are in conformity with the teachings of the Church and of the great spiritual writers of the past and present.

 I recently discovered a remarkable testimony of Marino Restrepo, a Columbian and fallen  Catholic who converted in an extraordinary way.  He gives his testimony on a series of youtube videos.  The first one follows below.  Be persistent and view all of them [click twice on the arrow to go to youtube;  the other parts will follow at the end of the first video].
