How Blessed We Are

Jesus came to establish on earth the Kingdom of His Father, to do the will of the Father and make known the Father’s great love for us.  When asked how to pray Our Lord left us the Our Father.  Then there are so many parables and sayings that also point us towards our Heavenly Father.    In so many of Our Lord’s teachings Our Lord exhorts us to have a personal relationship with our Heavenly Father.  


In a series of wonderful revelations to Sr Eugenia, an Italian born religious sister, the Father Himself gives beautiful insights into the depths of His love.  He came because the world is missing out on experiencing His love and His goodness.

In His revelation to Mother Eugenia, He indicated that so many people remain unconverted, because the Father’s love was not adequately explained and lived.  He indicates that we Christian’s are the poorer when we do not deeply understand and experience His rich and tender mercy.  God the Father wants us to have a personal relationship with Him, to draw us all deeper into His love.

Mother Eugenia put into practice the lessons the Father gave her and what a difference it made.  She lived a live of profound peace and hope even in the midst of great trials.  Supported and inspired by the goodness of the Father she went on to do the most wonderful things;  She was elected head of her congregation even though she had only had a few years of education.    As head of the order she opened 70 religious houses in Africa, established a famous town for lepers and discovered a cure for Leprosy.   

The Church welcomed the message that came to us from the Father to Mother Eugenia.  Having been thoroughly investigated, after 10 years of examination, prayer and reflection her Bishop of Grenoble, France   blessed the Father for such a “touching manifestation of His love.”   Then, under the reign of the great Saint, Pope John Paul II, the Vatican itself gave its blessing to the message. 

So do come with your hearts full of love for Our Father and depart from this beautiful day of prayer with  huge graces and blessings.  God our Father specifically requested this day in  His honour on the First Sunday of August. 

We hold many days of prayer through the year but this day is certainly one of the most blessed. Beautiful Books with the messages of God the Father and images will be distributed for Free for all who attend.  

THIS YEAR ONLY: A beautiful free momento, a “Millenium Cross”, commemorating the 3rd Millenium, will be given to all who attend.  At 5cm tall it is a perfect size to be warn as a pendant, or added to your key chain or rosary.   

Do come on Sunday 4th August, delight Our Heavenly Father and receive so many graces and blessings.
