5am in the morning. Waking suddenly, I started praying the Holy Rosary, sitting up in bed. During my prayer, a little dark haired boy, about 9 years old appeared to me. He literally touched me on the shoulder and said, “Lift Me up” several times. I reached out and stroked His shoulder, thinking He was one of the Holy Souls.

I said, “I don’t know who you are.”

He said, very sadly, “Every day, you praise Me and you tell Me you love Me, and you don’t know who I am?”

Then I realised He was the Lord Jesus. I had never seen Him like that before. He said, “When you go to people’s places, speak about Me. Don’t be afraid. Introduce Me to everyone you meet. Tell them to praise Me and love Me, because I love everyone.”

He looked at me sadly and said, “Not everybody loves Me. Lift Me up, high up, above everything in the world. Praise Me and love Me for I am worthy of all praise and love.”

Lord Jesus, have mercy on us.

Our Lord comes to me in different ways. That is the reason I found it hard, only after He spoke to me did I recognise Him as a young boy. He is full of surprises!
