I need Jesus every day of my life. Jesus tells me in the Bible that without Him I cant do anything. I have the gift and capacity today to play soccer because God gave it to me.

I noticed a little lump on my neck and it changed my plans and my life. We will have to remove it, exclaimed my doctor. It is just a simple operation… I spent three days in the hospital and I waited three weeks for biopsy results. I wasn’t worried at all. I was a 22-year old university student, full of energy and vitality. I didn’t expect it could be something serious. On 22 February 2006 the doctor told me: “It is positive“. I didn’t even understand what it means. Everybody in my family was shocked – I had CANCER. I was confused. I had lots of questions and fears.

He prayed: "Father in Heaven, send your Son Jesus now to this priest suffering from kidney T.B., kidney stones and infections and restore him complete health of body and soul". Then I thought in my mind that he might have seen the hospital chart where my sicknesses were reported!

If I have to be punished for what I did – i.e. for the goodness, truth, and Christ – I wouldn’t choose the smallest punishment, but the most terrible one; I would be so happy if I could die for Christ, although I know that I am not worthy of such a great grace.

I healed my daughter who had bronchitis, after antibiotics showed no effect. I had a wart and it disappeared on the following day after I had used my homoeopathic drugs.

I knew about God, but I didn't know Him. I saw God only as a strict judge. One of the predominant feelings when I thought about God was a sort of fear. Today, I know I was completely wrong.

Yes, bones were my life issue. I was born with a fracture. Since then I had several fractures during all my childhood, every time I fell down. I spent a lot of time in hospitals. I suffered a lot. But I also saw other people suffering. It was for me great life experience, great learning experience. During this experience I understood that God is always with me and He never abandons me. This attitude of praise became (and it is continuously becoming) my expression of love towards God.

I am thankful to have been born 31 years ago with no arms and no legs. I won’t pretend my life is easy, but through the love of my parents, loved ones, and faith in God, I have overcome my adversity and my life is now filled with joy and purpose.

When I was a child I was sexually abused by an older boy. We lived in poverty. I experienced occult practices, depression, homosexuality, and suicide attempts. Only faith in Jesus Christ brought light to my life.

The aim of the “Jesus Heals” prayer gatherings is experiencing the fact that God is Love. He is Love that wants to give itself to other people. God wants to show us His mercy even through healing, signs, wonders, and miracles.

People ask me: What is the purpose of life? And I respond: In a nutshell, life is preparation for eternity. We were made to last forever, and God wants us to be with Him in Heaven.

During chemotherapy I lost my menstrual cycle. After about half-a-year I asked my gynaecologist – oncologist about that. I was afraid I was going to badly react to his answer. He told me:
“It’s normal. Your menstrual cycles will never return.”

I started to do fortune-telling and I said things that resulted to be truthful. I used to predict things that really happened in near future. Sometimes I read people’s thoughts. I disdained Christian religion. I had a bad opinion about believers and acquaintances who were not profound believers.

Despite persecution during the Communist era (or actually because of Communist persecution) my search of God became a continuous adventure. Pilgrimage and travelling rather than studying. When I studied at high school God came dramatically closer to me.

I always have wonderful memories of my return to God; still today they are pretty important. Everything happened during my university studies at times of normalizing Communism.

This epoch is not easy at all for Christians; but for big-format Christians it is a great and marvelous epoch. “If they persecuted Me, they will also persecute you.“ In such glorious moments the Church sings to the Lord a heroic song of love and faithfulness. It is a privilege and a gift: to live just now, to love, and to fight.

My core problem was – how can I trust God again?! How can I understand Him? What has happened? What we believed in before suddenly became not valid. We needed to reevaluate our faith from the foundation.

My conversion does not fall under the category “extraordinary”. I know you would like to hear about the miraculous conversion of a former drug-addicted or alcohol-addicted. I was neither drug-addicted nor alcohol-addicted. Maybe this is the reason why my conversion was even more miraculous.

The beatings would start and they would be slapping in the face, hitting in the stomach, sometimes kicking. “I struggled with faith, ‘Was God with me? Did He love me? If God is good why would He allow me to go through this situation?

But I was also interested very much in the communist ideals as in something that surpassed the ordinary life. So I became a member of a communist party – because I was convinced and I wanted it. And in spite of the fact I went to church and believed in God. I did not feel it as a contradiction

I got more and more entangled in different occult practices. I applied myself to astrology, healing (reiki) and I practiced martial arts. Instead of prayer I meditated in solitude, which pulled me many times away from the life’s reality.

We had decided with a great sadness that we had to go where we were being fed and leave the Catholic Church. Just as we were about to make this public statement Geoff had an open vision which simultaneously was confirmed to Gina through a word from the Lord.

Something of the kind must happen once in our lives for us to be true, convinced Christians, and overjoyed to be so.

André Levet - bank robber and hopeless villain

My name is André Levet and I was born in 1932 in an atheistic family and I have never heard anybody speaking about God. During the war in 1939-40 my father was deported to Auschwitz. I had neither father nor mother, I was abandoned and later I was received at a farm in Pyrenees where however I have experienced more kicks in a bum than kind caress. My father was freed in 1945 and he tried to remedy his life. I didn’t however accept my new step mother and when I was 13, I ran to Marseille, slept in streets and robbed trucks.

In this period I was caught by police and I was put in a jail in Baumettes and they wanted to return me back to my family. In a prison environment I became a small offender and I learned all tricks of our “profession” from co-prisoners. Although they send me back to my parents, I ran away again and I started a career of a delinquent.

When I was 15 I was arrested for an armed assault and I was put in a prison till reaching full age. In 18 we had an opportunity to enter the forces for a war in Indo-China so I did it to avoid imprisonment. I was injured and repatriated back to France and I was under treatment till reaching full age.

I am getting at “work”"

After all this, strengthened by my army and prison experiences, I became a leader of a gang of brawlers which focused on bank robberies. One day when we had a “boomlet” in Laval, I noticed a standing priest in a black robe on the second side of a street. I came to him and as I had never seen anybody similar to him before, I asked whether he was a man or a woman. He answered: I am a God’s servant. God is my Lord!

I told him, where was your God? He isn’t visible. He answered: I see that you don’t know God. But if you have time sometimes, come to talk about it with me. I live at No 12 bis rue de Solférino.

I have never forgotten this address. Several months later when I was again passing Laval because of “work”, I accidentally ran across this street. I went to see the priest and he told me: I was waiting for you. This priest became my friend, he was giving me advice which I didn’t carry on and every time he was telling me about God I told him: leave that God of yours where He is. After some time we were supposed to rob a bank in Rennes. But the work didn’t come out by a plan, my companion was shot and I was caught. I escaped and went to South America where I organized trafficking in drugs.

Three escapes, three returns

I returned back to France, where I was arrested again and I escaped again. Three escapes, three returns. If I totalled all punishments for my activities, I should stay in prison for 120 years. They transported me to Clairvaux to a prison for hard cases and together with my fellas we tried to escape – we were digging a tunnel like in a film Great Escape (la Grande évasion). We nearly escaped but we were caught. I tried for another escape, this time on my own; I nailed down a prison officer by a weapon. Again I was caught. They decided to send me to Château Thierry. A chief of the prison received me with words: you will obey or you will peg out! I replied to him by pushing over a desk at him. They put me in a pretty small cell with a built-in bed.

My priest didn’t abandon me, every month he sent me letters in which he sometimes talked to me about God and that He is good. I answered him, if your God was good, why there had to be so many wars, poverty, why some people die from hunger while others had abundance? Why some people had several houses while other had none? The priest answered me: André, you are responsible for it. What? Me? I would accept that I was responsible for robberies but not for the world’s poverty!

And one day the priest sent me a thick book and wrote to me: André, you can read this book all the time, even after your death, and you can start with any page. A prison officer brought it to me and told me: it is a good book, you should read it, and you can even take it with you to a cell. What is it about? About God he answered. What! No way! He dragged that God of his even in to my cell! I threw that book away. The priest still wrote to me and encouraged me to read the book.

Well, to make him happy…in 10 years I opened it 9 times. I started with reading about a wedding feast in Cana, where Jesus turned water into wine. I turned on a tap over a sink and said: man, let wine flow in here! It didn’t work. I wrote about it to the priest and added: that book of yours doesn’t work anyhow. The priest wrote back to me: André, you read it without a context, have patience.

I read a story about a Samaritan woman, a story about raising of Lazarus. This story made me angry, I couldn’t believe it, and what about my buddy, whom cozzpots sent away from this world, why wasn’t he raised? After a longer time I again continued in reading and I found out how much good Jesus did for other people and how they pursued him, spitted on him, whipped him, hurt and then nailed to a cross. It stirred me up, I couldn’t understand, how they could do so much evil to somebody who did so much good.

Meeting at two at night

I stopped reading and persistently I was looking for a way how to escape… I waited for some weapon or a file but these articled were blocked. There was no more hope for me left and thus I called to Jesus in this despair. I told him: if you exist, I shall give you all I have here. Come to my cell at two at night and you will help me escape. That night I fell asleep and suddenly something woke me up in the middle of the night. Ready to jump to my feet I felt presence of somebody in my cell, but I couldn’t see anybody. Then I heard clear and strong voice inside of me: André, it is two o’clock in the morning, we were supposed to meet. I called on a prison officer and shouted at him: Was it you calling me? No, he said. What time is it, I asked. Two. Two what? Exactly two, said a prison officer. Then again I heard that voice: Don’t be disbeliever, I am your God, God of all people. But I can’t see you! I replied.

In that moment a light appeared at bars of a prison grate. And in that light there was a man with pierced hands and feet and with a hole in his right side. He said to me: It was also for you. In that moment scales of sins for 37 years fell off my eyes and I could see all my wretchedness and malice. I fell to my knees and I stayed in this position till seven in the morning. I was weeping in front of God and all evil flew out of me. I understood that for 37 years I was knocking on nails in His hands and feet. At seven in the morning prison officers opened my cell and they saw me on my knees weeping and I told them: I will not spit on you any more, I will not beat up anybody, I will not rob anybody, because every time I would do it, I would do it to Jesus. Prison officers were surprised, they though in the first moment that it is about some treason from my side. But then they quickly understood that I have totally changed. Several prisoners converted and they also could meet this wonderful God and change their lives. Now I am free, my life has changed completely and I spend all my time by talking to others about love of my God.

    he Baptism in the Spirit's effectiveness in reactivating baptism consists in this: finally man contributes his part -- namely, he makes a choice of faith, prepared in repentance, that allows the that allows the work of God to set itself free and to emanate all its strength. It is as if the plug is pulled and the light is switched on. The gift of God is finally "untied" and the Spirit is allowed to flow like a ftragrance in the Christian life.
  • Peter Hocken
    During the night between Friday and Saturday, in the early morning hours of 10 June 2017, the Lord called back to Him a great man, Father Peter Hocken. He died at the age of almost 85. He was a servant of God, a friend, a priest who loyally served the Body of Christ until his last breath, all the world round. The Lord gave him an extraordinary intellect and wisdom, together with the experience of baptism in the Holy Spirit. He also received from God the talent and ability to provide specific and comprehensible theological explanations and descriptions of spiritual experiences that are taking place within the Church, notably after the Second Vatican Council.

    We all know, based on our personal experience, that the cooperation with most intelligent people is not often easy. These people usually do not establish friendship easily. It is interesting also that university graduates with an honour degree usually do not fit in to the working environment in the best way and that their high intellect is of a little help in overcoming personal or marriage crises.
