Over the past weekend I had an opportunity to attend a two day retreat at the Mary Queen of Peace House of Prayer in Minnesota, as Christina Gallagher visited our Lady's chapels in the USA this past week. I went into it knowing very little about Christina or the House of Prayer that our Blessed Mother requested through Christina. So I thought I would give a brief overview of what I saw and experienced. I know there are those who detest Christina and her House of Prayer mission, but what I witnessed and saw was a very prayerful (even though most elderly) group of laity of 400+, bishops, one archbishop and priests who attended. I also witnessed a very holy priest and spiritual director of Christina of 30 years, who has a doctorate in theology, (Father McGittiny), so this added to my comfort that nothing she has said in the past, present or future was contrary to our Catholic faith or moral teachings. Like I said, I came to the House of Prayer for the first time, hoping any doubt from what I have read from some on the MOG in the past about Christina, would be put to rest in my own mind and heart. My friend Verne in his messages received within the book www.godspeakswillyoulisten.org made mention of the House of Prayer in Minnesota and so it added for my desire to attend this past weekends talks, prayer and fellowship. This was the message given to Verne Dagenais on 7/07 Pride has no place in my church. Pride is causing much schism and division in my faithful. The houses of prayer are a good example. My messenger Christina Gallagher has a mission to establish my Mother’s houses of prayer. Those who are trying to fulfill her mission for her, are stumbling blocks and need to repent of their sin, for you are interrupting my work. I will not be mocked. Judgment will come on my house. Fulfill your mission, not someone else’s. Again, you will be judged on your deed’s, not on your neighbor’s. Do not be a stumbling block in my kingdom. For I say to you: But he that shall scandalize one of these little ones that believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone should be hanged about his neck and that he should be drowned in the depth of the sea. Woe to the world because of scandals. For it must needs be that scandals come: but nevertheless woe to that man by whom the scandal cometh. What I witnessed was a very prayerful priest and spiritual director of Christina's. A very holy and reverent Mass and Eucharistic Adoration immediately after Mass that lasted nearly two hours. Father McGittiny spoke several times about Christina and her experiences the past 30 years. He spoke of several of the over 700 miracles that he personally has witnessed and documented in his healing ministry through the House of Prayer. Miracles that were undeniable and most remarkable signs from God of her mission and that of the House of Prayer. What impressed me as well, was the prayerful song and praise of the faithful present. This is something I don't see in your average Church today. The Church was packed with the true remnant of believers of the Catholic faithful. They were engaged at Christina's and Fathers messages. They take their faith life very seriously. They were not a bunch of mind numb robot's, as I gathered from some of the comments on this form from the past. God was very pleased. On Sunday, Christina had no message, but prior to Father's talk she relayed to him the following which he gave to all present, "Christina had a vision of the mantle of our Lady covering everyone in the chapel during the Mass, while Jesus showing his Sacred Heart". This was a blessed moment and anyone at Mass and Adoration that day felt this presence in the holy event it was. As some of you who know of Christina's messages and prophecy given, you are aware that when she came to Minnesota from a flight out of New York on 9/11/99, she was with Father, a friend who was a judge and another man who was explaining the twin towers in NYC and their sign of America's economic and world dominance to them. Christina received a word and told them all, "it will be destroyed". It was two years later to the date that the Twin Towers was destroyed by two jet planes. Bottom line for me, I came out of there feeling confident that she is a true messenger of God and the environment that the House of Prayer brings is a true gift from God for these times and a true refuge for the near times ahead when WW3 unfolds. One last gift there was to have her spiritual director, Father McGittiny, the Bishop and other priests blessing those who came to them, some with healing blessings and some with ordinary blessings. They blessed all the religious articles on both days. This is another thing that I don't see in my neck of the woods. God bless these holy priests and bishops and Christina for doing what so few would do and offering up all her persecution and pains to our Lord.
