Chapter 8

The Prayers

8.1 The Rosary

During winter 2013, I think, I was invited by the association "association Maître Philippe" at l'Arbresle (France). Small rolls of papers were available for people. One word that the Master had said when he lived was on each roll.
I jumped at the opportunity, 'Master, send me a message.' I took one of these and read, "transmute your darkness into Light." I answered, 'I wish to, but how?' Silence...
In Spring 2013, I happened to come across a website explaining the Rosary. The Blessed Virgin Mary had reveal herself to Saint Dominic (1170-1220) and said to him,

"Spread my Rosary, it shall be a remedy for so many troubles."

Suddenly, I recalled the word from the Master 'transmute your darkness into Light.' I turned toward the Master's portrait, 'do you think it's a good thing for me?' Heavy silence upon me...
So ignorant was I that I had made an outrageous remark; I could feel it. Now, whenever I think about it, I give a smile. This website pointed out that graces from Heaven could be received in saying the chaplet. A fight started within me. A voice in my head said to me, 'Well, well, you are saying the chaplet for graces, aren't you? I replied, 'Indeed, it is not right. One should say it with love and not for such and such grace.' A voice said to me, 'Whenever you say the chaplet, you bring joy into the Life of the Blessed Virgin Mary.' It was the deciding argument from then on.
Got it! She is so present in our lives, too often without our being aware of it. She had brought such joy into mine; it was my turn to do the same! I remember that it was on Sunday and on the next day I bought a wooden chaplet. I began the prayer with the following unconditional determination; one chaplet a day. To those who do not know, the chaplet is a series of Ave Maria and Pater Noster. I explain in detail below. The more the days went by, the more I was discovering the chaplet, the more I was wondering. My body was often vibrating when I was saying these prayers. I was indeed bringing joy into Her Life!

Here are a few graces that I experienced and a few teachings from the Blessed Virgin Mary:

8.1.1 About the Snake.

On that morning, I was lazing about in my bed. I did not feel like getting up. Suddenly, I was delighted in spirit. Carried over into an unexpected place in which a snake was quickly winding around my feet, my ankles, then my legs... when a voice abruptly said, 'Say the Ave Maria.'
I was disconcerted, 'What? ...What the hell am I doing here?' The snake was increasingly strangling me. The Voice became insistent, 'Say the Ave Maria.' Everything was happening so fast! Then I said the Ave Maria and to my great surprise, the snake was pulverized. I was free. Straight after, my spirit came back on Earth. I was a little feverish. I got up from the bed and had a look at the Christ and Mary icons and the photo of the Master beside me, 'Got it! I have understood what Ave Maria is for.'
I gave thanks to Heaven for that extraordinary grace.

8.1.2 A very bad case of sore throat.

On that day, I welcomed Thomas, a friend of mine. He had just got rid of a very bad case of sore throat with multi-resistant germs he got while doing a training period in pneumology in an hospital in Lyon. He claimed to be cured but I knew he was not. The very evening, I felt that I was getting sick. By treating people, I learnt that diseases are much more than what science thinks to know. Anyway, in such cases we have to act very quickly and I am used to manipulating my acupuncture needles. But that day, a voice sharply stopped me, 'Don't use your needles.' I answered, 'But I am going to be sick!' Silence...
I obeyed. The next day, I noted that the disease was getting worse. I tried again and once again I heard, 'Don't use your needles.' 'Well!', I obeyed. Two days after, I was really sick. I noted that the sore throat from the Hospital was indeed more than a very bad one. I remembered that to remove it, Thomas had used a great deal of antibiotics to say nothing of the throat pains. At that time, I tried once again but always the same refusal. Yet the next day, no voice stopped me. I began fighting with my needles. How hard it was. It was getting stuck. I used all my knowledges, I managed to stop the evolution with two or three treatments a day. A few people know it. When you have a disease, like a sore throat for instance, acupuncture restricts the side effects as avoiding a big fever and unbearable pains in the throat... But in my case, the status quo, I still had the disease. A thought occurred to me; 'O Blessed Virgin Mary, I offer you this Rosary. May you cure me because I can't!' Then, I started saying a chaplet. At that time, rosary and chaplet were the same for me. So excited was I that I said a second chaplet. That made me happy. When the last "Amen" was said, I sharply felt the disease reduced by half. But I was not cured! As I was walking out, I spoke to the Master, 'It's unexpected! No thing is more powerful than the Rosary.' And there, the Master informed me that the Rosary is four chapelets. 'What an idiot! Yes I have understood the lesson. When you promise Heaven something, you keep your promises.'
I quickly came back, took my wooden chaplet, stared at the Blessed Virgin Mary's eyes and started praying. Two chapelets were missing to end the Rosary! When the last Amen of the Rosary was said, I was cured at once!

8.1.3 Into an angel.

On that day in 2013, I was getting ready to say my chaplet. But I was wondering, 'O Blessed Virgin Mary, does it work if I say the chaplet for others than myself?'
Her answer was beyond wonder; I was at once turned into an angel!!! Yes, you have read well. I did not have a man's body anymore but an angel's body. I had two big wings... What a wonder! I could feel them and then, suddenly my mind was moving up to the skull... there was a great pressure like a ring above my head, at least ten centimeters wide... I cried out, 'Wooh!!! it's true that angels have ring; I had forgotten!'
Suddenly I was turned into a man, back into my man's body. I looked at the Blessed Virgin Mary and gave sincerely thanks for the grace. I had understood Her teaching. I also remembered what the Master had said, 'We are but fallen angels.' Then I began saying the chaplet.

8.1.4 Into a purifying fire.

Fabienne is a friend that I met when I learnt acupuncture. She is a Christian. She had me discover Myans. 'There used to be a miracle in this town,' she said. I brought my wooden chaplet with me, 'Ok, let's go!' I went into the Church Notre Dame de Myans. I pointed out to Fabienne that I daily said the chaplet and I did not have time to say it before leaving. She left me so that I could say it. I took place in front of a statue of the Blessed Virgin Mary, 'O Blessed Virgin Mary, I offer You this chaplet' and I began the prayer.

Suddenly, inside me, my bones, my flesh, my body turned into what I may call a purifying fire. I could clearly feel flames, but no pain, on the contrary only a feeling of well-being. I kept focusing on my prayer. The fire almost lasted during the whole chaplet. When ending, I was amazed. I was thankful.
I have never known why, but I have always been filled with a boundless admiration for this woman. The Master said, 'The highest being of all is the Virgin. She is the highest spirit of mankind. You cannot understand the Virgin.'
Within the Church of Heaven, a woman exemplifies the perfection of the Creation. Within the Church on earth, I can see but men holding the highest positions. How many times women have been, and still are, despised in this Church or in other religions. But in the Church of Heaven, the will of the Father is that a woman be the highest Spirit of the whole Creation... You have no idea how different the two Churches are. The Church of Heaven is perfect, the one on earth, like us, does what it can.

8.1.5 Her Voice.

I was spending holidays in the mountains with my wife. On 31 July 2013 morning, I retired to my room to say the chaplet. 'O Blessed Virgin Mary, I offer You this chaplet. Mary, pray with me, pray for us.'
I was saying it when in the middle of the chaplet, with my right ear, I could hear Her Voice, the true timbre of Her Voice, we were saying the chaplet together in harmony, She and I... I have had the grace to see the Blessed Virgin Mary several times, never face to face by then... but there, I could hear Her Voice!!! Just by hearing Her Voice, I thought, 'She is really full of grace.' Her voice is sweet and exemplifies the maternal sweetness. Her timbre of Voice is outstanding. I ended my chaplet. I gave thanks very warmly.

8.1.6 You may call Me Mother.

It was on Sunday 25 May 2014, on Mother's Day. I was very puzzled. It was around 4 pm and I was getting ready to go to the church in my area to say the chaplet. I was used to going there. Before praying to Our Lord Jesus Christ, I always turned on the right hand side to greet Our Lady. But here we are; I knew according to the Gospel that Our Lady is Our Mother. Christ had said, "John behold your mother. Woman behold your son." When saying the chaplet, we are praying so that each of us may welcome Mary as Queen and Mother. What am I going to tell Her?
I hesitated between "Happy Mother's Day" since she is our Mother and "I wish you a happy Mother's Day" since she is Mother of Christ. I was walking over to the Church with this dilemma. I could not make up my mind. Yet, as I was walking on, I arrived in front of the statue of the Blessed Virgin Mary and just before seeing Her, I could hear Her sweet Voice saying to me, 'You may call Me Mother.'
I could not understand what was going on. I looked at Her... I thought it could not be... Silence...
I took out my chaplet and began praying. 'Hail Mary...'. Suddenly, a male voice interrupted me. I heard, 'Mother. Hail Mother.' I could not yet understand. I was staring at Our Lady's eyes as She had taught me and I started again, 'Hail Mary.' Then, a male voice sharply interrupted me, 'Mother. Hail Mother.' I did not still understand. 'Hail Mary'... and the voice said again 'Mother. Hail Mother.' From that moment on, I repeated, 'Hail Mother.' My body started vibrating with joy... I cried out, 'So it's true, I may call You Mother!'
I could not realize. I went on saying my chaplet, replacing Mary with Mother. This chaplet was one of the most moving chapelets that I have ever said.

Some days later, a sneaky voice said to me, 'what is the most beautiful grace that you have had in saying the chaplet.' At once, I thought when I was turned into an angel, then Her Voice, then I understood where the voice came from, 'No, the most beautiful grace I ever had is that she allowed me to call Her Mother!'
I always wished to meet my family. I had tested a great deal of things in my life... I could not understand why in other religions or other ways proposed to us, there were technics but nothing for Christians. It took me some time to understand. For us, no need for technics... love and unconditional trust are enough!

8.1.7 The chaplet

Let's learn how to say the chaplet. Two remarks first! The Ave Maria should be modified as follows:

Hail Mary (Mother), full of grace, Queen of Heaven,
The Lord is with thee.
Blessed art thou amongst women,
And blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus.
Holy Mary, Mother of God,
Pray for us sinners,
Now and at the hour of our death.
Amen.

You add "Queen of Heaven" for Master Philippe de Lyon said it so and in the chaplet concerning the Glorious Mysteries, you pray for Her to be greeted as "Mother and Queen of Heaven" (Vatican II).
Try and see how different it is. In adding this word, I feel a purification in the depth of my soul which was not before. I had asked Our Father before saying the chaplet, 'Father, what is the difference between my spirit and my soul, and where are they within my body?' Our Father had me feel my soul and my spirit. That is why I add "Queen of Heaven".

The Master insisted on modifying the Pater Noster (The Lord's Prayer) for the translation is not right. There was recently a discussion within the Catholic Church in favour of what the Master wished, but habits die hard.

Our Father in Heaven,
Hallowed be your name.
Your Kingdom come,
Your will be done,
On earth as in Heaven
Give us today our daily bread.
Forgive us our sins,
As we forgive those who sin against us.
Do not let us yield to temptation,
But deliver us from evil.
Amen.

The following is easy. Cross yourself and start with the Apostles' Creed:

"I believe in God, the Father Almighty, Creator of Heaven and earth; and in Jesus Christ, His only Son Our Lord, Who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried. He descended into Hell; the third day He rose again from the dead; He ascended into Heaven, and sitteth at the right hand of God, the Father almighty; from thence He shall come to judge the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy Catholic Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body and life everlasting. Amen."

In the Creed, it is the Holy Church of Heaven and not the Church of earth you know, which is perfectible as we also are. This prayer is very powerful. One should not overlook it.
One day, I was in a church standing at the foot of the Cross. I was ending the Creed saying, '...I believe in life everlasting,' when I suddenly heard a deep voice, full of authority coming from the Cross which made me tremble, saying,

"YOU DO WELL".

Over the "small beads", you say an Ave Maria. Just before the "large beads", you say,

"Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit. As it was in the beginning is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen."

Then you say one of the five proposed passages in the following order; Joyful, Luminous, Sorrowful and Glorious according to the day. Then say a Pater Noster over a "large bead" following by 10 Ave Maria over the small beads and so on.

The Gospel of Philip claims, "Some said, 'Mary conceived by the Holy Spirit.' They are in error. They do not know what they are saying. When did a woman ever conceive by a woman?..."
I too have had the grace of having seen the Holy Spirit four times, two times with a dove shape as described in the Gospel while saying the Jesus prayer or prayer of the heart (orthodox prayer) in my room and at Jerusalem. Once, I could see a part of her body which is not a terrestrial body. Once again was at the church Saint-Pierre de Vaise in Lyon. The Paraclete, the Holy Spirit is a woman!)

8.1.8 A few advice!

- The chaplet is often cut into two pieces when it is said in a church. The leader says the first lines and the group the last ones. I did not feel my body vibrating when I just said a part. Likewise when I sang it. I should therefore recommend to say it entirely.

- ALWAYS focus on Them while saying it. Our Father and the Blessed Virgin Mary often said to me:

"Make eye contact with me."

- Take an icon, a statue in a church for instance and look it straight in the eye, in the face! It's a MAJOR move!!! There are very deep reasons for it. For the Pater Noster, look straight in the eye, in the face of an icon of Christ. For the Ave Maria, look straight in the eye, in the face of an icon of the Blessed Virgin Mary.

Here is another anecdote. In Vietnam during the holidays, I asked Christ to wake me up at 5h50 at morning to say the chaplet, for I knew that the guided tours would not give me any time to pray. I did not want to use the alarm clock so as not to wake up my wife. About 5h45 am, I was up naturally. I was looking at Christ's face on a photocopy of the Holy Shroud of Turin that I had brought along with me. I thanked Him for waking me up at this time as usual: 'I am beside you,' He said to me. The bedside lamp briefly flashed on its own; I called it a Light wink. I said my morning prayer, then I went to the desk to say the chaplet. At that time, I had trouble making eye contact with Him, looking at Him straight in the face. That day, I began saying the chaplet. I was ending ten Ave Maria. Then came the Pater Noster. At that moment, I did not dare look at Him. 'Make eye contact with Me,' He said. 'But Lord, it is very overawing,' I said to Him. He gently answered 'I know, make eye contact with Me.'
From then on, I have always looked at Him straight in the eye... I must confess that it is still very overawing. One day, you will be certain that Jesus is God incarnated in Man, that your Creator is in front of you while praying. The chaplet will then have another meaning and you will better understand why it is so vital to say the chaplet while looking Him straight in the eye.

- As THEY taught me, saying the prayers in your head and not aloud is the BEST... then as time goes on, it will be not you but your soul who will say them! There are very deep reasons for that.

- You have no idea how powerful these prayers are. One should take them very seriously and overlook them on no account!

- Before saying a chaplet, I always say:
'Mother (Ô Blessed Virgin Mary), I offer You this chaplet. Mother pray with me, pray for us.'
Offering is for me a major move. Everything belongs to God, Creator of everything. What can you offer, except chapelets and your personal transformation into a better being?

- As for Sorrowful Mysteries, I say at the end of the chaplet :
"Father, thank you for having suffered for us and for me. Mother, thank you for having suffered for us and for me. Elder sister, thank you for having suffered for us."
The Master insists: "We never thank enough". We are far from being aware of what these Beings have done for us. If you were aware, you would cry a lot. This is why I add "for me", never to forget!

One day, I ended the chaplet of the Sorrowful Mysteries by these words : 'Father, thank you for having suffered for us and for me. Mother, thank you for having suffered for us and for me. Elder sister, thank you for having suffered for us.'
And my elder sister answered me: 'Thank you for having suffered for us.'
Petrified, I was thinking over my third vision of Christ when I saw myself crucified on a cross...

8.2 The chaplet of Divine Mercy

Another chaplet that I always say after the traditional chaplet is the one of the Divine Mercy passed on by Sister Faustina. Why? ...because Heaven told me to do so. Sophy, a friend of mine came to see me in November 2013 and told me, 'Have a look, here is a cardboard with Saint Faustine's prayer on it. I don't know why I thought of you and I offer it to you.'

Saint Faustina and Christ as she saw Him.

On several occasions, I had happened to come across this chaplet while surfing on the Web whereas I suspected its existence by no means. But such a word, I am getting used to it. When someone passes something from Heaven on to me and says to me, "Have a look at this. I thought of you...", I translate what Heaven gently tells me by, "It might be good for you to say the chaplet, you have things to experience!"
I agreed! But suddenly I backed down. This prayer was so mysterious and I could not understand a word.

Let me explain. On one day, Jesus Christ revealed Himself to Saint Faustina. He told her to say another chaplet in addition to the one given by the Blessed Virgin Mary when She revealed Herself to Saint Dominique. Here is the prayer.

Cross yourself, then 1 Pater Noster, 3 Ave Maria and the Creed then you say :

Over the large beads : Eternal Father, I offer you the Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity of Your Dearly Beloved Son, Our Lord, Jesus Christ, in atonement for our sins and those of the whole world.

Over the small beads : For the sake of His sorrowful Passion, have mercy on us and on the whole world.

Then, you end your chaplet saying three times, Holy God, Holy Mighty One, Holy Immortal One, have mercy on us and on the whole world.

I conclude as Master Philippe had taught me, for any prayer, by, 'If this be The Father's Will.'
Behold! how can I offer a thing that I have not? Suddenly, I thought over the Anne-Catherine Emmerich's visions she had in the XVIII century. I had read her work. She had seen the Last Supper as if she was there. When Christ was braking bread, she had seen the Light coming out of Him and going into each of His disciples.
I said with a cry of admiration, 'It can't be true! He has torn open his Light and divine coat to give each a piece!' It was incredible! This extraordinary gift was lying dormant within each of us and nobody was aware of it. None but God could be capable of such a gift!
I was ready to say the chaplet when suddenly I backed down again. I had the feeling that each time I would say it, Christ would suffer. I was thinking over this terrible word from the Master, 'If we are cured of a disease whatever it may be, that means that our soul is released; it’s a great grace which has been granted. You must firmly set in your mind that someone else has taken on this burden.' (On 15 January 1895)
I was musing, 'If the Father has mercy, it is because the Son is suffering instead of us, he has been put in charge of the burden mentioned by the Master.' Personally, it was not acceptable. At that time I did not grasp much of this prayer. I persisted in not saying it despite the voices urging me to say it. Yet on one day, I had to face the facts; we cannot struggle with our own forces, someone higher than us has to take over him a large part of the burden so that we may be pulled out of the ambush into which we had got lost since the original sin and to show us the way. It was in November 2013. I knelt down, I implored the Father for the sake of the Son and I began to say the chaplet.
What a surprise! On "Eternal Father, I offer you the Body and Blood..." my body started vibrating. Very rapidly, the left and right brains parted, then I could feel as if a hand was plunging into my brain, more precisely into my soul, sounding as if something was taken out of it, then my brain was sharply shut. Everything happened very fast, without any pain. It was very impressive but I say it again with no pain at all!
Once the chaplet over, I was thankful. God, Our Father, had therefore accepted my offering. We really had, within us, lying dormant within our soul, "the Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity of Our Lord Jesus." It was very impressive.

From that day on, the chaplet of the Divine Mercy was part of my daily prayer.

Here is another anecdote about the chaplet. Days went by, and I daily said the chaplet after the one of the Blessed Virgin Mary. My body usually vibrates when saying it. Why this day, none but God knows! I said it with quite a particular faith. I knelt down in front of Christ just before saying the last three sentences,

Holy God, Holy Mighty One, Holy Immortal One, have mercy on us and on the whole world and I concluded as the Master taught me by, 'If this be The Father's Will.'
At that point, I could hear a mighty Voice coming from far away, full of gravity and authority saying,

"THIS IS MY WILL."

I understood who was talking to me at that point. I bowed more than before and said in a low quavering voice, 'Yes Father... Thank You Father.' I withdrew from the icon of Christ in front of me, staggering, saying, 'This is beyond words!' I then remembered this passage from the Gospel in which Christ was transfigured and the apostles were terrified, fallen facedown to the ground.

Here is another anecdote about the chaplet. It was late December 2013, I was in Jerusalem on a pilgrimage to thank Our Father, Jesus Christ, for having given me His Blood that night from 24 to 25 December 2012. I cannot tell everything but that day, I had a vision of Evil; I touched It with my hand. On touching It, the life in my heart started going away, I began feeling serious cardiac pains and above all I was becoming aware that death was gradually coming as a very thick veil spreading inside me. I was getting into panic.
A struggle started within me, everything was going so fast, 'What a fool! How come you touch it?' I said with a severe voice. I answered myself, 'I don't know, it was as if I was powerfully attracted... Well well, no panic, let's think over it.'
Everything was going very fast! I was remembering the Master's teaching that I had read, 'If God sends you an ordeal, then you are able to face it.' I told myself, 'Great, I am able to face it, I then accept the ordeal... hem! anyway I don't have much of a choice. And what else have you learned? ...The Ave Maria, the most powerful prayer after the Pater.' Pains were increasing. I was remembering the anecdote of the snake pulverized by the Ave Maria. I was giving myself courage. 'An Ave Maria and it will be over.' I said the Ave Maria, but nothing! nothing! nothing! It could not be! At once I panicked. Everything was going fast, very fast.
Then I realised, 'Got it! God doesn't want me to use the Ave Maria but the Pater, the most powerful prayer!' I then said the Pater Noster several times without stopping. The cardiac pains was becoming blurred, death which was moving forward within my heart stopped... but... but does not move backwards!
That was happening in my room at sisters' home in Jerusalem. I looked at the Master, 'It can't be! Nothing is more powerful than the Pater.' Silence...
But I feel his presence... He did not want to say a word but I guessed something like "you are close, go on!" This gave myself courage. I had bought communion wafers at Nazareth. Let's try! Maybe Our Father wanted me to use them. I took one and asked Christ to turn it into His Body. I ate it but nothing occurred. Well, I made a mistake, God does not want me to use this way...
Suddenly someone was knocking at the door, it was Jean-François. He was part of the pilgrim group. I opened the door, I pretended that everything was fine but this was far from being the case. Cardiac pains were still there and death, this very thick veil which had ceased spreading because I was saying on and on the Pater Noster in my head was still present. I was still out of breath.
'What's up?' I said. 'Remember, you have said you would teach us the chaplet of Divine Mercy?', he answered me. With hindsight, the situation was rather funny. I, who at that point did not feel as a Catholic, I was about to pass the Sister Faustine's chaplet on to my catholic group and to the priest who was along with us while pretending to be at my best to save face. Indeed, it was no use saying what was going on, even to Catholic people, they would not have believed me. I was now entering the room in which the group were sitting around the priest. It was hard to move forward; I was out of breath. I sat in an armchair and waited until the priest ended his speech.
I was assessing the situation, 'For the moment, it doesn't move but is still present.' Then my head automatically turned towards the left. A young boy had the picture of Saint Faustina along with the Christ (see below). His heart was shinning on the picture.

Spontaneously, I took it and put it upon my own heart... AND THEN! What a surprise! This thick veil of Death which was shrouding my heart sharply tore in two. Light was coming out again, Life was coming back into me and the ordeal was over.
You cannot imagine the happiness inside me! I had experienced the meaning of the chaplet, I had experienced, "I am the Way and the Truth and the Life," I had experienced, "I am the light of the world" and better still, I had felt this innermost moment when Christ died on the Cross, the curtain of the temple was torn in two as was the thick veil of my heart. That day, He had really defeated Death which is the worst curse ever by Life which is the greatest blessing ever.

I passed the chaplet on to my group. Then I went up to my room. I sang and danced before the Cross for a very long time. I thanked Christ for having shared that private moment, experiencing in my flesh this outstanding moment, by repeating on and on, 'How extraordinary was the experience You gave me!'
The day after, the alarm rang at 5h45 morning. I was present, Christ was there too; I started saying the chaplet.

One day, the Master told me about the chaplet of the Divine Mercy, 'It is more than a prayer; it is a way of living!'

8.3 The Jesus prayer or prayer of the heart

The Jesus prayer or prayer of the heart is the orthodox prayer, "Lord Jesus, Son of God, have mercy on me, sinner." It is inspired from the Gospel of Matthew 9-27, "As Jesus went on from there, two blind men followed him, calling out, 'Have mercy on us, Son of David!'"

This prayer takes a major place on the book The way of a Pilgrim. While saying the prayer, I could see the Holy Spirit as John the Baptist announced and I was baptized with the Holy Spirit at Jerusalem on Thursday 26 December 2013. With this prayer, I support people who come to see me for an acupuncture session. I say without stopping, "Lord Jesus, Son of God, have mercy on Mrs or Mr NAME FORENAME, sinner."

I was subjugated by the orthodox saints. Seraphim of Sarov died in 1833 is in my mind. He saw the Blessed Virgin Mary 12 times and was transfigured. Sergius of Radonezh made a great impression on me, whenever I look at him, my heart shines forth.

We were at Nazareth on 24 December 2013 still during my pilgrimage. There are two churches of the Annunciation in this little town not far one another which both claim to be on the place where the Annunciation of Archangel Gabriel to the Blessed Virgin Mary took place. One is Orthodox, the other is Catholic. That night, we were to meet at the Catholic church to celebrate Christ's birth. Before going there, I lingered for a moment in the Orthodox church of the Annunciation. There is a stream at the back. I walked up and a thought occurred to me. By this ability to feel that Heaven granted me, I might be able to know where the Annunciation really took place. I asked, 'O Blessed Virgin Mary, give me a sign.' Suddenly, I was enveloped in love, there was a very great presence in this orthodox church around the place where I was. I was convinced. Such a presence! Catholics made a mistake; the Annunciation really took place here.
I gave sincere thanks and walked to the Catholic church of the Annunciation. This church is built over the house in which the Holy family might have lived. I walked up. Then something told me to try again. Again I said, 'O Blessed Virgin Mary, give me a sign.' Then, I was enveloped in the same love, in this same presence perfectly identical to what I had experienced in the Orthodox church of Annunciation!!!
I said with a smile to Heaven, 'Well, I got it. No difference between the two churches!'
