Blessing from Jesus to a dying Man
We had arranged to meet the mother of a seriously ill man named Angelo on Wednesday 4 September at St Patricks Church in Sydney. Angelo was forty-nine years old.
In the morning, while I was saying my morning prayers, and as I was praying the Angelus, the angel suddenly appeared and said, “I am sent by the Lord Jesus Christ. He said to me to give you a message, that you are to take His blessing to the sick person, whose mother you are supposed to meet next week.”
The angel said, “Do not wait until next Wednesday, you must go tomorrow, or otherwise it will be too late. You must pass on the blessing that our Lord Jesus sends him. You must bless him in the Name of Jesus, the Lord Who sends you. Our Lord recommends this because there is not much time for him. You must do it right away. Bless his mother as well.”
The angel stood in front of me while he was telling me this vital message. At the same time, to my left appeared the devil, who appeared as a normal human being dressed in conventional clothing. In a very casual voice, the devil said, “You don’t have to listen to him. You can take your time. You can go anytime. Relax, don’t worry about it too much. You don’t need to do it right away.”
I turned to the devil and, with a stern voice, said, “I will do and obey my Lord Jesus Christ and do what He wants me to do, not you!” After I said these words, the devil vanished.
I took this message seriously. I thought to myself, how am I going to get this message to the mother of the dying man? I called my friend Maria and asked her to contact the mother. She did so and told her of the urgency of the message.
The next day, Friday, was quite a cold and rainy and windy day. No matter how unpleasant the weather was, I caught the bus to the train station and travelled to Strathfield. My friend Maria picked me up from the station and immediately drove me to the hospital to see the dying man. As we arrived at the main entrance of the hospital, we called the mother on the mobile phone, and she came down to greet us and take us to her dying son.
We came to his room his family surrounded him; his wife, son, and his mother. Rest of his family and relatives were in the waiting room. I could see Angelo lying in bed with a mask over his mouth. He appeared lifeless. His mother approached him and in a gentle voice said, “Valentina is here!”
As he heard these words, and to our complete surprise, he suddenly responded and removed the mask that was covering his mouth and sat up in bed just for a few seconds. His lifeless body momentarily filled with strength.
Smiling, he greeted me and said, “Hello Valentina.”
After that, he just laid back in bed. I was so amazed how in one moment he looked so lifeless in bed, and the next moment he sat up. In that brief time, I sensed in my heart he forgot all his suffering.
Then someone in the room said, “Let us start with a prayer.” I think it was his son. All of us present prayed a decade of the Holy Rosary. When we finished the prayers, I heard our Lord say: “Now, pass My blessing to him and offer his soul to Me. Speak to him a little about the other world, so that he won’t be afraid to come to Me. Tell him of My Goodness and Love and the beautiful Heavenly home awaiting him and everyone.”
I did as our Lord asked. I passed our Lord’s blessing to Angelo. With my right thumb, I made the Sign of the Cross, on his forehead, and then on his chest and each of his hands. As I did so, I said, “Lord, bless Angelo in this life, and in the next, for all eternity.”
We then sprinkled the room, and everyone present with Holy Water. I noticed two angels at the foot of the bed, one on each corner. After we sprinkled the Holy Water, the wife of Angelo, said to me, “Good on you for doing this, I could see black shadows hovering in the room.”
I started to tell Angelo all that our Lord asked me to tell him and said, “You shouldn’t be afraid to die. You just come into another world. It is a beautiful world, so peaceful and full of love. Jesus is there with us. Many times, I have been there. It is so beautiful. It is real! I cannot explain in words the peace, happiness, and joy God gives us.”
We all need to go through a little purification because we all need to be pure before God. We are all sinners. We are aware that we are sinners.
Maria and I then said goodbye to Angelo and the family, and left the hospital room, as more people were coming in to see him.
Our Lord showed me how there is a big spiritual battle for the soul of a dying person, and we must fight for that soul, as they are departing this world. The family and friends surrounding a dying person must pray for that person unceasingly. It is very important as the prayer releases protection over the soul and allows them to depart peacefully.
The next day, at about a quarter to four in the afternoon, Angelo passed away.
May he rest in peace.
