LIVING IN THE SHADOW OF ENORMOUS CHANGES
(Blenheim, New Zealand)
I am a New Zealander, 70 years of age. When I was about 11 I was much affected by a film about Fatima. In retrospect it was the beginning of a profound sense in me of the apocalyptic.
In 1992 a friend found me a copy of the messages to Fr Gobbi. She didn't read them herself, but thought from the cover they were about Fatima, though they were about the end times. I was immediately struck by their credibility, confirming some intuitions I started to have in 1990 which I do not believe were particularly intended for me to spread abroad.
However they inspired me to begin soon after 9/11 a long exposition in verse on the Marian Movement of Priests, Garabandal, Medjugorje and other revelations. I sent the poem to a friend who told me she was stunned by how they echoed the revelations made to Maria Divine Mercy, of whom I had never heard before. Again, the Book of Truth put out by Maria Divine Mercy immediately struck a chord with me, and I am dedicating a great deal of time to indexing the work so that what is said can be readily located. As well, I have increased my prayer time and am working out various ways to publicise the material in an environment full of scepticism, especially since the change of popes.
I have been given a good brain and a profound trust in the goodness of Jesus and his Mother. I have no doubt I have been guided all through my life and that I am entering an extremely serious period in that life. I am trying to let myself be guided particularly carefully in these times of grave spiritual peril, and this is why I feel i must maintain a certain caginess about my identity.
This in particular is why I have concocted an email address which does not include my own name, although I am willing to come out into the open occasionally. It has not been easy to accept that I am indeed living in the end times and that i may indeed witness the Second Coming while still on earth.
