"I dwell with the crushed and the dejected“ (Is 57:15) - Fr. Augustine Vallooran VC

Prayer of the Month


I asked Jesus why He wanted me here - Alexandra Kock, Switzerland

I am thirty one years of age and a landscape designer. When I was twenty one years old I attended the World Youth Day in Rome and I was converted. Fr. Vincent Patrick OMI from Sri Lanka told me about DRC and I attended a retreat there in the first week of March 2011. I suffered from hypersensitivity. Within a day, I reached the limit of my resistance to noise and also sitting with a lot of people in a closed area. I couldn’t even enter the hall the next day. I went alone praying in the Burning Bush chapel and asked Jesus why He wanted me here. He answered me "To heal you from your hypersensitivity". The same evening I met someone and told him about my problem. He advised me to sit in the hall and pray. I did so and I was healed. I could remove my ear plugs and remain the whole day in the hall. I trusted the words of this man as coming from God. By sitting for a long time I had pain in my back. After two days of the retreat I could hardly remain seated and had to change positions. On the third day when I heard a healing message of lower back pain I claimed it for me and my pain vanished. During the inner healing service by listening to the words of forgiveness and prayers of Fr Augustine Vallooran I could forgive my mother. I could feel her standing together by the side of the cross and the precious blood of Jesus dropping on us, washing the roots and strengthening the bonds of relationship. Praise the Lord!
