2nd NOVEMBER, 1991

Today when I was praying our Lord appeared to me. He said, “Be at peace, My child, don’t worry about people. I put the sign on the forehead with the Holy Cross and nobody can harm them. I know who belongs to Me.”

I saw thousands and thousands of people who had a glowing golden cross on their forehead only visible to God. It was under the skin.

Our Lord Jesus said, “Valentina, the crosses are not visible to people.”

The crosses will probably be visible when we go through the time of
suffering. The Angel will guide those who have the Sign of the Cross. It will be luminous and glowing.

7th July, 1991

I was very depressed for a week when Our Lord revealed to me that our chastisement is upon us, but then on a Sunday morning Our Lord revealed something beautiful. It was about 7am when I was reciting the Holy Rosary, the Glorious Mysteries, when a vision came to me.

An opaque light appeared like an oval in front of me. I saw what looked like an Angel or possibly a Saint in the light. A person started talking to me, he said, “I have been requested that you have to obey me and come with me.”

While kneeling down, I sat back and asked, “Who are you?” Very seriously, he answered, “You have no right to know and to ask, but only to obey me.”

At that moment it came to me that Our Blessed Mother had told me that many visitors would come to me from Heaven and that I would know they were from Heaven as I would feel very peaceful.

I would also have the opposite feeling, very restless and nervous when visited by Her adversary. This is so I could tell right from wrong. I felt very peaceful at that moment. When he held his hand out to me, I didn’t hesitate, but took his hand and went with him.

We walked very fast through countryside on a very narrow road side by side. I kept looking at my footsteps and tried to keep up with him. It seemed to me that we were being controlled by another force of great speed. (Similar to being lifted up suddenly, leaving an empty feeling in the pit of my stomach). Then I gathered up courage thinking I would like to know the name of my companion, so I asked, “Where are we going?”

He turned to me, saying very seriously, “This is not for you to know.”

I still asked, “What is your name?” He turned and gave me a stem look. He said, “I am Saint Eugene.” I replied, “That is a nice name.”

He continued, “My name is written in all the books.” And I said, “Oh, you are an historian.”

We walked over a hill, on the crest I noticed a beautiful palace of a soft pink colour the square openings in the walls showed a golden light shining through. The Saint told me to stop there, in front of a black line drawn across the ground in front of a large square opening, filled with the opaque golden light. St. Eugene told me not to touch the black line.

He said, “In a moment you will step over this black line.” He kept reminding me not to touch the line.

Before entering he stood sideways with arms outstretched, pointing with his left hand I could see earth far away and with his right hand towards the brilliant light. He said, “It ends here,” indicating earth with his left hand, “and begins here,” pointing to the light.

He said, “Not everyone is worthy of all this.” Then he continued, “When I touch you and hold your right hand we both have to move over the line simultaneously together.”

In a split second we were across, passing through the beautiful light. I felt a peaceful ecstasy enfolding me. I can’t describe the experience of what T felt and saw. There were many gardens filled with flowers, all types and colours, waterfalls, lawns, benches and birds, everything in such perfection and beauty.

I was admiring, looking in all directions and could only say ‘Oh!’ over and over. Above all I felt so peaceful and of holiness enfolding me. I stopped and said to myself, ‘I’m not going back, I want to stay here.’ I saw some people strolling, nodding and smiling to me as they passed by.

There were trellises and pergolas covered with climbers in flower, people seated beneath them. What had originally appeared to me as a palace turned out to be a high wall round this beautiful garden.

I walked on a carpet of red, velvety flowers when suddenly I was tapped on my right shoulder, I looked round to sec two Angels who told me to walk to my right. Ahead of me I saw Our Lord Jesus waiting. There was a low stone fence behind Him, His hands were clasped in front of Him. When I noticed Him, I was practically flying to Him. As I drew closer, He started walking toward me, smiling gently.

He outstretched His holy hands to greet me. I placed my hands in His, and He said, “Welcome home. My daughter, this is your home.” This overwhelmed me, feeling I could stay there. I felt so secure with Him, filled to overflowing with so much peace and love, I wanted to pour it out over the whole world.

Our Lord then said, “This is your home, one day soon, but not yet.” At that moment I felt a great disappointment, and then He put His arm around me and started guiding me back towards the entrance.

He stopped and said, “Now, I want you to be happy, not sad. Today you were worthy to see this beauty of your home. I will give you a message for My children on earth. Whatever you saw and experienced, tell them that I, the Lord, prepare for them their homes in My heavenly habitation for My children. Tell people when they will praise Me and love Me sincerely, with a purity of heart, the way you do it, everyone will be worthy of this heavenly kingdom.”

“The homes you prepare for yourselves on earth are only for a very short time, but the one I prepare for you is forever. Don’t be sad, be happy, because one day soon you will be with Me.”

I listened to all He had to say with tears in my eyes. He then took me by the arm and escorted me through the brilliant gold opaque light filling the gate of Heaven. Once I was through, I was standing on a grey, dismal soil.

St. Eugene, who had brought me, was waiting for me. He took my hand and led me downhill some distance. Suddenly he stopped in front of me, turning to the way we had come. He indicated the Heavenly gate and said, “See this gate of Heaven, not many pass through this gate, only very few, but you yourself were worthy to walk through before your time. Be happy. God loves you.”

We continued on down and as we walked he placed a hand on my shoulder and said, “I believe you are a widow.” I answered, “Yes, I am.”

He went on, “and you suffered a lot from your childhood in your life. I understand you are a very sincere person and you always pray for others. You are very compassionate toward other people. The most beautiful thing you do for Our Lord, which pleases Him, is when you console others, like yesterday, when you consoled the lady you met at the bus stop and she told you about her niece dying of cancer and you interceded for her so sincerely.”

Then I said to him, “How do you know all this?” He said, “We know everything. Your prayers and petitions usually go to us Saints, but you are so sincere, they go directly to Our Lord and Our Lord can never say no to you. Us Saints are specially placed to pray for you people on earth. Each Saint prays for a specific part of the body.”

Then standing before me, he held out both hands closed. He opened them and said, “Choose.”

In his left hand was a gold cross, decorated with lines. Attached was a gold chain. On the end of the chain was a gold square with lines radiating from the centre.

In his right hand was a similar cross, beautifully decorated with red rubies also with a gold chain. On the end was a heart, richly decorated also with the rubies.

He asked me, when I chose the one in his left hand, “Are you sure?”

I said, “Yes, it is from my Lord.” But then he said, “Give it back!”

I gave it back thinking it is not mine anyway, then he held out his right hand and said, “This is yours.” I replied, “Oh, no, no, no. This is too expensive.’

St. Eugene smiled and said, “Today, you are worthy of this heart, because your heart and His have today become one. Be happy, in the world you didn’t gain a heart but this day you received a heart from God.” I wept and praised Our Lord, feeling I was not worthy of so great a gift.

St. Eugene warned me, “Be careful of the evil one, for he wants to possess all humanity. Defend yourself the way you were doing until now, making the sign of the cross. In the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Amen.”

The Saint brought me back in time to attend Sunday Mass.

A description of how Our Lord appeared to me in Heaven. He wore a beautiful white garment, rich and brilliant in appearance. Over His shoulder was a wide sash, deep red in colour, gathered in perfect pleats on His opposite hip, right to left with the ends draped down.

Our Lord Jesus had an Aura of compassion and love, which I felt strongly as I approached Him. He loves us very much, and desires that we all come to Him. His Sacred Heart is our way to Heaven.

I praise you. Lord Jesus. I will love and praise you forever and ever.

After experiencing the Heavenly vision, my sudden change and attitude towards all around me, also material things, took on an artificial appearance. Everything seemed false to me after being in Heaven with Our Lord. My heart constantly raised to Heaven, for I longed to be with Our Lord.

I felt His strong love which He gives to me, and also felt so secure being with Him, like a little child. Everything is entrusted to Him, and all worries disappeared.

Today, in my daily life with all its ups and downs, this experience, gives me hope to carry on that one day Our Lord will be merciful, that we will gain entry into Heaven. If we have faith and trust, God will definitely lead us there.

Jesus spoke during Holy Communion that same day, “Valentina, you carry My cross. Bear all your trials that I send you.”

4th July

When I was praying the Rosary Mary appeared to me, she was very happy and with a gentle smile. She softly spoke to me, “Today you received a special grace and you are worthy that I show you my beautiful garden full of beautiful flowers. Then Mary stretched out her hand and said come My Chid.”

Mary then turned sideways then raised Her Holy hand and pointed to the beautiful garden. I saw a very low stone wall shaped in a round form around the very large area inside the wall was filled with a lot of large daisies, not too tall, medium size. She then stretched out her hand for me to come in the garden, I was hesitant, and afraid I would trample the flowers. She again said, “Come in the garden and see for yourself, these flowers are real.” With much persuasion I went in and touched the beautiful flowers. she assured me that nothing would happen to them even though they were fresh.

She said, “See for your self they are real and alive.” They felt very real and fresh. “See they are fresh and real and you my child are one of them” she said, I wondered what she meant. Then the Blessed Mother continued, “These are My children those that are praying the Holy Rosary. I look after them and protect them, for My son Jesus.” She asked me to tell the people what I saw and experienced. Mary said, “Those who will sincerely from their hearts pray the Holy Rosary will be worthy of a place in Heaven.”

There were thousands and thousands of these beautiful daisies. Then I noticed that in the centre of this beautiful garden was Jesus smiling. He stretched out His Holy hand to invite me closer and at the same time pointed to the beautiful garden.

The meaning of all this is when we pray the Holy Rosary, spiritually we are already in the heavenly garden, like those flowers, and we make our Lord and the Blessed Mary very, very happy and joyous. I concluded, “Thank you dear Jesus and beautiful Mother for loving us like those flowers.”

7th June

Our Lord Jesus came to me and said, “My daughter, write down what I am about to tell you. Before the chastisement comes, humanity will suffer much. There will be less and less water. There will be very changeable weather. It will get hotter and hotter. There will droughts. The land will be all parched and brown. A lot of people will even die because of this. But the worst will be when the famine will spread throughout the world. People will suffer greatly before the chastisement. Pray, pray, pray to My Divine Mercy, so that I will be merciful towards all humanity.

My daughter, why are you afraid of people. Speak about what I am telling you. Do not be afraid. I put you together like a jigsaw puzzle. I know every part of your body. I am your God and Your Creator and I am always with you to protect you. Do not be afraid of people. You must speak and tell them the truth.”

4th June

It was morning around 8am while I was praying the Holy Rosary. All of a sudden I had a vision and the Blessed Holy Mother Mary appeared to me. She was looking at me very sadly. I did not understand and she did not say anything, she just stood there. I quickly made the sign of the Cross. When I did this Our Lord Jesus appeared as well, with a red mantle and He stood next to His Blessed Mother. All of a sudden I noticed that her face was becoming sadder and sadder. They were both looking sad. They both kept looking at me. Then at that moment Our Lord Jesus disappeared but Our Blessed Mother remained.

Our Lord Jesus then came back again but without the red mantle. He was wearing just a white tunic. Then He stepped towards me. He raised His right Holy hand. He placed it on His Chest and said, “Look at my Sacred Heart. It is surrounded with thorns and pierced right through with a sword, it is so sorrowful my child.” (Our Lord lamented because of mankind) I felt so sad I started to cry. I felt so sorry seeing the Sacred Heart so sorrowful and gravely wounded by humanity.

Our Lord continued, “I give you all my entire self, what else do you want Me to give you. I give you My Body and My Precious Blood every day and still the world does not recognise Me. They push Me aside”. Then again He repeated. “I give myself every day in the Holy Eucharist, even there they receive me unworthily, full of sin. I cannot watch this any longer. I am so sorrowful even unto death. I can no longer tolerate this.”

Our Lord became more and more sad and angry. I cried and cried. I felt so sad for Him and scared as well. Our Lord Jesus then said, “A very big chastisement is on the way. It is almost here at the door, such as has never been seen before since the world began or has ever been recorded by humanity. Oh yes, my child, it is almost here. It will come as a surprise. Everything will be normal, people will go about their lives as they usually do every day. It will start with the rain and people will say, it is good soaking rain, but with the rain the wind will start then the hurricanes, then the earthquake, everything will go to dust and will be destroyed.”

Our Lord showed me all the horrifying things that will happen. I saw all this and I cried and I cried and I said to the Lord, “How can you permit such a thing to happen, haven’t You got a heart? I know there are a lot of people in the world who love You very much. I myself love You with all my heart.”

At that moment Our Lord was silent and very sad. He looked down and took a few more steps towards me and He said, “I know about those who love Me. They are My consolation, but they are only very few. I can put them all in the palm of My hand.”

Our Lord then explained to me why such a catastrophic chastisement would come, “Because of the sin of mankind I will send this chastisement. Their pride is ruling the world. They go above Me they live without their God and Creator. I am put under their feet. The scientists, the technicians, they continue with their pride and because of their pride the whole world will suffer.”

Our Lord then told me to pray, “Tell people to pray, pray to My Divine Mercy. Pray now, pray every day. Pray when the horror comes over all of you. Above all pray to My Sacred Body and Precious Blood. In the end keep repeating: Holy, Holy God, Holy Almighty, Holy Immortal One, have mercy on us and the whole world.”

I replied, “My Lord and My God have mercy on us all”. For weeks after this vision I felt very sad and depressed. There is nothing to do but pray and convert and ask God for mercy and maybe in His goodness and kindness all this may be averted.

12th April

At 2:30am in the morning I felt Our Lord Jesus gently shake my shoulder saying, “Wake up, wake up!” When she awoke she got up and knelt down, in front of Him and glorified Him and started to recite the rosary, our Lord Jesus said, “How proud I am My child of you and I love you, continue to do what you have done in the past.” He was referring to my prayers and spreading off His Messages. He then touched my cheek with His first two fingers and then blessed me by placing His Holy hands on my head and said, “from now on, I want you to open the door for Me and bring me all the young people. Till now all the doors were closed because the youth are My biggest worry, I love them the most.”

I said, “Our Lord would you prefer young people to pray the Holy Rosary in this group that I am attending instead of old people?” Our Lord smiled and looked at me with gentle understanding and replied, “You do not understand Me yet, your group is good and makes Me very happy and is dear to Me, but from now on I want you to open the door for me and lead the young people to Me.”

I answered Him, “My Lord, I do not know how!” Our Lord replied, “You have to wake them up and give them courage, talk to them about My infinite love and Mercy. They are very precious to My Sacred Heart and I love them all. Their ideas are My ideas, that is why I love them so much, I love them all. I love each one of them so bring them all to Me. I Beg of you, open the door and lead them all to Me I bless you my child in the name of The Father and of The Son and of the Holy Spirit.”

I replied, “Thank you My Lord Jesus Christ, I love you for all the graces and blessings you give us.”

21st March 1991

This morning, 7.15am, our Blessed Mother appeared while I was praying, while kneeling.

She smiled and said, “Live only for today. Today is your most beautiful day. I come to you with My Baby Jesus, the Holy Child.”

Again She repeated, “Today is your most beautiful day. Never before, as now, have you been so close to My Most Beloved Son. As you are now, because of this, I will place Him in your arms. Stretch out your arms.”

She bent down and placed the Baby Jesus in my arms. He was very young, about 2 months. My heart filled to overflowing with love and emotion. I praised Him and adored Him, tears filled my eyes with sheer happiness.

Holy Mary spoke, “Look at My Son. He is God alive, My child. Tell everyone about this happening. I will place Him in everyone’s arms when they will come close to Him as you are now. I am the Mother of My Beloved Son and I am the Mother of all My children.”(spiritually)

Again She repeated, “Live for today only. Today is your most beautiful day. Don’t think of tomorrow, don’t think of the past, and don’t think of the future. Think only of today. Live only for today because today is your most beautiful day.”

(This is how our Beloved Mother teaches us, to love Her and Jesus with all our heart and with all our strength.)

While our Holy Mother was telling me all this wonderful true happening, I was looking at the Baby Jesus in my arms, I couldn’t take my eyes off Him but still paid full attention to what our Holy Mother was saying.

The Baby was so alert, gazing around the room in all directions. All around Him was a bright, glowing aura. Even my arms and hands had a bright golden glow.

Looking over Him, I noticed the pulse of His Sacred Heart beneath His white nightie. With each pulse, a bright ray issued forward and then back to His Heart.

I kept saying, “How Holy You are, my God. I will love and praise You for ever and ever. My You be blessed and glorified by all.”

Thankyou, Blessed Mother. Thankyou, Baby Jesus, for this is a truly special day of my life.

Many times before this, Blessed Mother appeared with the Holy Child, but She didn’t place Him in my arms. I felt that I wasn’t ready to receive Him, it was not my time. At times, as a little baby, He would speak to me. I was surprised and asked Mary, “How can Baby Jesus speak? He is so little.”

She answered, “My daughter, you must remember that He is God. He can do anything.”

5th August

At Medjugorje on Our Lady’s Birthday Late at night I was praying the Rosary when Our Lady appeared in the bedroom at Citluk where our group was staying. She spoke, “I come to introduce Myself as the Queen of the most Holy Rosary. It has been a long time since you have seen Me in this way, yet you don’t understand why.”

Again she repeated, “I am the Queen of the most Holy Rosary. I wish everyone to pray the most Holy Rosary. That is why I want you to help me, in my name, to spread this message, to the whole world which has fallen so much into sin, offends constantly My Son. Everyday, more and more, he is offended tell them to beg Him for forgiveness, His Mercy.”

Holy Mother’s face changed. She began to cry, begging us to convert our lives and to stop offending her Son. On her right side I saw a heart, pierced and surrounded with thorns and bleeding, there was also a Crucifix and a Host. Our Lady explained, “The Lord Jesus sacrifices Himself everyday in every Mass, His Blessed Sacrament. He wishes that we received Him pure and clean and that we ask Him for His forgiveness. The Sacred Heart of Jesus is pierced and bleeding with the thorns of many offences every day”.

She spoke of the Crucifix, “My Son freely accepted death on the Cross for our Salvation. Still people think little of His Sacrifice and do not honour Him. Daily they crucify Him.”

Holy Mother was crying, begging me to tell people to change their lives and to stop offending Her beloved Son. “Pray, Pray, Pray, all fifteen mysteries, of the rosary. Tell them to pray this with their families, their groups, and their churches, tell this to my disobedient children.”

Holy Mother blessed me in the Name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. AMEN. Our Lady wore a royal Blue dress, covered with pearls that shone. On her head was a spectacular crown with a diamond star in the middle and a large M on each side of the crown. It was made with a shining silver material with brilliant diamonds all over it. She was also framed by a Large Rosary under which was the word … IMMACULATA.

Message from mid-1990s

It was about nine o’clock in the morning, I was outside putting my clothes out to dry.

The angel appeared to me and said, “I come to you to show you what will come in the very near future. This is very near. It cannot be avoided unless people repent of their sins. It is written in all the scriptures and must be fulfilled.”

The Angel continued, “This is the three days of darkness that will fall upon the world.”

He showed me a vision.

It was daytime, all of a sudden I could see a black shadow in the form of a huge mist, covering the day into darkness.

It was moving very slowly until it covered the whole world. It was a solid black mist.

The Angel said, “This is the beginning of the three days of darkness.”

Our Lord chose that day would turn into night, so that people could see that God is in charge.

The Angel continued, “When this comes, go inside your house, tell people to stay inside and pray, pray like you’ve never prayed before, and light blessed candles.”

“Pray and encourage others not to despair. Do not look outside through any windows and doors. Cover every window and door completely.”

Spirits may call out to us, to open the doors. They will be imitating our relatives, but do not open the doors to anyone.

The Angel said, “Wherever your family will be, they will be protected through your prayers.”

After that experience, I saw a renewed world. It was instantly green and so much sunshine. There will be peace in the world and everyone will praise and thank God for it.

Many times, the Blessed Mother said, “My children do not wait till the last minute, but reconcile with God and pray to be united with God.”

28th June

I awoke at 4am because of the strong wind and began praying the Rosary. I saw a gold light, then Jesus spoke, “Hear the horrible, wild wind, thousands and thousands of voices are calling for mercy to My precious body and blood for forgiveness of their sins. There is so much sin. Tell everyone to pray to the precious Body and blood for forgiveness of their sins which are so many in the world. It is an evil wind full of evil voices. The world is full of sin. Pray to the mercy of My precious Body and Blood.”

1st May 1990

Our Blessed Mother appeared to me as our Lady of Lourdes holding the Baby Jesus in Her arms.

He was about two months old and He was crying. She gently placed Him in my arms. Holding Him I adored Him and praised Him.

Our Blessed Mother said, “Love My Son as a Baby. He was crying because of the many offences and sins committed in the world against God.”

Our Blessed Mother said, “For Me, He is always a little Baby and I love Him so much. I wish that you all would love Him and praise Him. Console Him for He is so gravely offended by the sins of the world.”

Our Blessed Mother was crying. He was crying for the world that was rejecting Him.

21st April 1990

I woke up early in the morning, about 5.30am, and went on my knees and started praying the rosary.

Whilst I was praying I was looking at the early morning sky. Up in the sky I could see a rock. Around this rock I could see two people moving and talking to each other. One was a Roman soldier holding a spear and the other I recognised as our Lord Jesus wearing a white tunic.

All of a sudden, I could see our Lord Jesus quickly approaching me. He appeared in front of me in a most beautiful white garment. He came very close and showed me His Holy Side Wound.

He said, “See this Holy Wound that I received during My agony and suffering, the people in the world today honour it very little, they don’t even think of this Wound.”

He showed on His left side, through an opening in His tunic, there were silvery golden pigments surrounding Hs Holy Wound. The Wound was open and quite large with a jagged edge but not bleeding. “Very little do people honour and pray to this Holy Wounds.”

“These Holy Wounds I received unexpectedly, I was near death, semi conscious, but not dead when the soldier put the lance through My side.

Tell people of all My Holy Wounds that I received on the way to Calvary this Holy Side Wound was the most painful of all. Please honour My Holy Side Wound that washes away all the sins of the world. Let them venerate and pray to the Holy Side Wound for the forgiveness of their sins.”

Whilst I was kneeling down, I was so sad seeing His Holy Wound that I started to cry and stretched my hands towards the Holy Wound as if to touch it (but I didn’t), to console our Lord.

Our Lord showed me the soldier who lanced Him. Then He blessed me with the sign of the cross and He departed.

I didn’t get to ask, due to my immense sadness in seeing the Holy Wound and trying to console our Lord, whether He had forgiven the Roman centurion.

March 1990

Lord Jesus came to me and said, “I came to give you a message. Tell people, not to offend me anymore with their sins. Tell, people, to praise and love me. I give them enough grace but still they keep offending me.”

“Tell people, how much more grace they would receive if they asked for forgiveness with all their heart. My grace and strong love for you all it is so powerful that in an instant it is visible as I give it to you all and its spreads so quickly even when its invisible.”

“It’s like the roots of a tree, its spreads on top of the earth and deep under the earth. That’s how far my grace spreads. I give Holy grace and goodness to those who pray to me. Not only to those, but to all their families and generations. That why, tell people to pray, to love one another and to stop offending me. Tell them to love me, to pray to me and to praise me. Because I am Holy grace, goodness and love.”

Lord Jesus was standing so close to me and with his finger he drew three circles and wrote in them:

Then he explained to me how the Holy grace works. He showed me a beautiful green tree and nature surrounding it. Calmly, with patience he explained to me the secrets of how his grace works.

All three circles were connected into one, which was how the Holy grace works. When Jesus came to me I couldn’t describe how beautiful he looked. He wore a beautiful white gown. On his chest he bared a golden heart with rays of gold shining out from it. It was so beautiful and bright it almost blinded me to look at it – the Holy light. He came so close to me that I could reach out and touch him. The three circles that Jesus drew were made from grey marble.

(This vision was received during the night of 22nd of March to the 23rd of March 1990.)


The Blessed Mother constantly speaks to me and shows me the Holy Rosary. On many occasions she speaks to me about how coldly She is received in peoples homes. She also speaks to me that in many houses they venerate Her very little, and in other houses with a lukewarm reception. On this occasion She appeared to me and She compared this with the example of being put in to a cold stable, where it is cold and not welcoming as compare to a warm loving home. She said, “On some occasions they do not even think about me being welcomed into their homes. They give little value to my presence. That is the way I compare people of today.” She went on to say, “You see my child even though, I still love all my children and am very concerned for them always. Every day I am begging my Beloved Son to be merciful and forgiving.”

Blessed Mary the Queen of the most Holy Rosary pleaded, “YOU must pray the Rosary every day, not only on the 13th of each month (Fatima Day) but every day.” She wishes that we pray all three mysteries of the Holy Rosary every day. She went on to say, “Satan has such power over everyone with his cunning ways he deceives people in such a way, you have no idea of how he does this, like with a snap of a finger you follow him so easily and are deceived. Me and My Son can not come to you unless you pray and think of us, that is how we break the barrier and are able to come to your aid. Again I plead with you my children to pray, pray the Holy Rosary. In this way you blind the devil, only then can we come to you. So every moment call for Our assistance so that we can protect you.”

When I was given this message By the Holy Mother, she was crying so very much, tears pouring down her face, and I too cried with her. If only you could see her, you too would feel the sorrow and pain and would wish to console her.

15TH March, 1989

Today, I went to help the Altar Society in St. Raphael’s Church. While cleaning, near the side altar of the Sacred Heart with another lady, we were nearly finished when a nun approached us and asked us to change the altar cloths at the side altar of Our Lady. She asked us to lift down the statue in order to clean everything properly. I picked up the cloths and bucket and started walking across to do what we were asked. When I arrived at the place, I saw that the statue had already been lifted down by other ladies who had started cleaning. They were wiping the statue. I wanted to approach but could not move. It was as if I was fixed to the floor. Suddenly, the statue of our Lady appeared alive to me. She smiled and said, “My daughter, others are cleaning Me but I chose you.” She kept repeating this over and over. The other ladies looked at me and said, “Alright, you are just watching while we are doing the cleaning.” Out of embarrassment I picked up my cleaning gear and went over to wash windows. I didn’t want to tell anyone what I had experienced, so I kept working by myself. Later, that same day at home, I heard a beautiful gentle voice calling my name again. I searched, but I couldn’t find anyone. Again She repeated the same words, “My daughter, others are cleaning Me, but I chose you.” Immediately, I knew it was our Blessed Mother speaking. I felt such a beautiful joy in my heart at this. I began singing all different hymns and praises for our Lord and His Holy Mother while I attended to my housework. The telephone rang and I answered. There was a lady calling and she tried to pronounce my name and said, “Are you Valentina?” I understood then what she meant and answered, “I am Valentina.” She asked, “Will you pray one Hail Mary for me?” She introduced herself, “I am Sister … from St Patrick’s Guilford.” I answered, “Yes I will pray at home.”

Sister said, “No, no, you will come and pray in our church on the 16th of March at night. We are having a mission. We chose many people to pray in their own language.” I tried to excuse myself from going, but she wouldn’t listen. Instead she said, “Wear something blue like our Lady, Mother of God.”

The next day … 16th March, St Patrick’s Church, Guilford. When I arrived at the church, I was overwhelmed by the way they welcomed me and others. They pinned my name onto me with a little white rose and then asked me to write the names of my parents on a card. They placed all these cards in a basket and took it to the statue of the Sacred Heart and pinned them to a cloth around its base with red and white flowers.

The nun who invited me took all who were invited to pray in their own language to a reserved place at the front of the church. I cannot describe the joy I felt that evening. We all sang songs in honour of Jesus and Mary. I noticed that the church was full of families. The children stood around the sides, all holding candles. Everyone was singing and praying. There were five priests, all giving beautiful homilies. I felt very much the Holy Spirit was present for the two hours duration of the Mission. The same night, I prayed the Rosary kneeling beside my bed. When I finished the Rosary it was after midnight and I was about to get into bed when suddenly something took hold of me, of which I had no control and I said to myself, ‘Oh, no, not again.’ In a split second a voice said to me, “We have come to thank you for your obedience and response to Our call so quickly for what We asked you.”

In myself I said, ‘It’s not such a great deal for what I have done, it was only one Hail Mary.’ When I turned around I saw standing behind me both Jesus and Mary. The Blessed Mother touched me gently on the shoulder and said, “My child, come with Us.” Immediately, we were all standing in the church of St Patrick’s, Guildford. First was our Lord, then the Blessed Mother and then myself. Holy Mary spoke, “Did you see, in this church, everyone loves Us. You yourself experienced such a true devotion to Us. You really see how people love Us. You see, My daughter, this church that you visited today is to Me and My Son one of the most lovable churches of all churches.” Mary was so joyous as She said these words. Jesus smiled with joy and I felt in my heart the joy they had. Blessed Mother said, “See, My child, I want you to experience and see for yourself how others worship and honour Us in this church.”

She turned again toward me and holding Her hand out, She said, “I know, to you, St Raphael’ s church where you always go is very dear to you, but for Me and My Son it is one of the most saddest churches of all.” This came as a shock to me, and I started crying. She took my hand and said, “Come. I will show you why.” In a split second, I found myself with Jesus and Mary on top of St. Raphael’s church. What I saw was a most thick, black cloud right down to the ground. It was spread all over the church, so thick it could be cut with a knife. I was so sorrowful and shocked, I started crying again. I noticed at the base of the wall I could see some white bricks that were not covered by the cloud. Holy Mary held my hand and said to me, “See this thick, black cloud does not allow Me or My Son to come to this church. This is the sin of the people that pushes Us away.” She said, “Come, I will show you and explain to you,” and then took me into the church. I tried to tell Jesus and Mary that these people really love them and try to honour them, but the Blessed Mother said to me, “Not from their hearts. They come to the church out of habit but not with true devotion.”

As we were standing in front of the Altar and as we approached the Sanctuary, I noticed before me a big arch of palm leaves meeting in the centre and intertwined with a creeper, these were very fresh and green, but further in there were some dead, crisp, brown leaves. I asked, “What does this represent? Why are some branches green and fresh and others are brown and dead?”

Jesus answered, “See, My child, the brown represents the soul that dries out and has become empty.”

Holy Mary said, “I compare this to people who come to this church.” Again I tried to protect my people. I said, “But they do honour You and praise You. The church fills up with people, especially during first Holy Communion and Confirmation and Feast days.” Blessed Mother answered, “Oh yes. Only by habit but not with true devotion. Come, We will show you how many people with true devotion really love My Son and Me.” We stood in the middle of the church all three of us. Blessed Mother then said, “Look, you can count on your fingers how many sincerely love Us by counting on your fingers.” I saw four people standing, then five and then three. These were men, women and children but a mist obscured their features. I started to cry again. On the other side, I saw our Parish Priest who was sitting on a low seat and was looking towards the main entrance. His face was very sad. Again, Holy Mary said, “Look at Our Hearts, pierced with a sharp knife.” I saw Their Hearts pierced through and blood was streaming down over Their robes. They were both clothed in red robes with blue mantles and were weeping. I wept with sorrow with them. Holy Mary told me, “Tell people not to criticise others when they step out of the church. Only God can judge. They stab one another on the back. That offends My Son very much.” I asked, “What can I do for all this in reparation?”

Holy Mary said, “Prayer. Pray, pray, pray that humanity must repent and convert. This has to come to you, My child, the wound of Our Hearts. You have to carry it with you and feel the pain of My Son and Me and understand how much We suffer for sinners.” With Her right hand, She indicated our Parish Priest and said, “You must tell him all that We have shown you. Do not keep it for yourself.” Again Mary repeated, “Conversion must come to this church. Don’t delay. Hurry, hurry don’t delay for the conversion of sinners must come. Pray, pray, pray the Holy Rosary.” Then They departed. Oh, people, if only you could experience and see what I have seen. How much it hurts Jesus and His beloved Mother, seeing Them so sorrowful, your hearts would be touched and moved even if they were made of rock. At 2.30am, I found myself back in my room. I cried so much, my eyes were all swollen. Our Blessed Mother had instructed me to write down right away all that I had experienced so that I won’t forget. She also asked that this message be given as soon as possible to our Parish Priest. The pain in my heart I experienced immediately, and I carry it with me to this day, sometimes more, sometimes less. We established some time later a Rosary group and pray that we will remain faithful.

Thankyou to our Lord Jesus and His Holy Mother for revealing all this to us.
