The School of Prophetic Ministry has already made a difference in my quiet prayer time and meditation on the mysteries of the rosary. The day after the school ended, I was making a holy hour meditating on the sorrowful mysteries. When I came to the third mystery with Jesus being crowned with thorns, I saw a clear picture of Jesus and asked Him about it. Mercifully, He showed me sinfulness from my childhood that many would think it was no big deal, but that it did pierce his head with thorns. This allowed me to go to confession more deeply right after to be free. It really showed me that our Lord is always giving us more and more mercy and freedom. So thankful!
Also, thank you to Patrick for challenging us to spend time in the chapel with Jesus with the name of someone who we are at odds with, to ask the Holy Spirit to reveal the “gold” in this person, and then to reach out to this person through e-mail or text. I did this, and within 30 minutes the person texted me back. To make a long story short, this has brought freedom, forgiveness, peace and reconciliation. We are not best friends, but God, in His great mercy, paved a path that has already started to bear fruit. Thank you! Thanks be to God!!
