MESSAGE FROM JESUS Received by Christina Gallagher on 31st May 2016
My vessel, I desire you to give My message to the world, to believer and to non-believer.
I tell you, people of the world, look around you, see your world’s inhabitants… so many suffer in heart, mind, body and more importantly, in soul. So many deny Me without reason.
Can you not recognize the signs of your earthly times? All the messages given to you over many years are like a cup filling up. The cup is nearly filled and about to overflow. When this comes about, many will be withdrawn from your world and come before Me. Many who experienced safety of the world in its fruits now experience emptiness and have little. The world’s fruits are swiftly passing : your labours should be not for the worldly fruits but for the fruits that will last forever through Me. Let your labours be fruitful in Me for your salvation.
There are many destructions coming to your world more swiftly than the wind, as My Hand draws close to the earth.* As I crush evil it turns on itself : man turns against man : child against parents, children running to and fro without a purpose.
Many things will be imposed upon you leading you more deeply into the darkness of Lucifer and his minions, catching many in its web seducing My people because so many live life only of your world’s fruits – they do not permit Me to protect them, they run from Me into the stench and darkness of Satan –Lucifer- and all his minions.
My Church has permitted the darkness to enter. (A private and serious message concerning the Church was then given to Christina.)
…..You must be alert and live My true teachings, otherwise you will be led astray. (The private message continued.)…..confusion will spread its errors as My Mother told those of My children in Fatima.
(The secret within the message of Fatima was then revealed to Christina. Christina is fully aware of the complete secret of Fatima, including that which was hidden.)
Many will choose to unite in darkness with the spirits from hell – they are busy seducing many in your world. The world has become very dark with few desiring to live lives in the light of God. My Sacred Heart bleeds and its wound opens… (Christina experienced the opened wound on the Sacred Heart.)
My mercy will soon be unwanted and disowned, just like Myself. When the world’s inhabitants deny Me in full, then you will experience My justice, but through My justice there will be great suffering.
I will come in the sky and great fire will fall upon the earth, lightning will flash throughout the sky, I shall lash out at the devil and his minions and all those that he has in his power – I shall burn them in everlasting flames.
There will be few found in the light and truth with My mercy.
You My vessel have endured much and in your offerings to be united in My Sacrifice have saved many. **
Those of My people who have generously given to you and have been a means of help to you, I will raise up in the light of My mercy.
The island of Achill will be untouched at that time. My Mother and many angels will stand over it and keep it protected. Death and the stench of death will be everywhere.
I have told some of My chosen few what I am telling you now…To My children of Fatima I gave much detail regarding My Church, to others much about My justice. Garabandal, My chosen, has suffered unjustly but My time of justice shall put to flight the world’s powers that choose to rule over Me.
I AM and will be forever.
I bless you, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
31st May 2016
* Christina is aware at present of an earthquake coming very soon to the United States. She can hear the grinding of the earth’s plates.
** Christina, when enduring sufferings, would always say,
“Receive, Lord, my offering of (whatever suffering) and I ask You to receive it through the sacrifice of Calvary that it may be purified through Your Sacrifice.”
It is deeply saddening, even heartbreaking, to hear week after week people discussing the deaths and injuries that are resulting from each new weather extreme (most recently in Poland, Germany, France and Spain but without interruption now in all parts of the five continents of the world), whether it be sudden torrential flooding, lethal lightning and thunderstorms, massive hailstones, scorching heat-waves or raging tornadoes – not to speak of earthquakes in strange locations – people bewildered at experiencing not only ‘the four seasons in a single day’ but the dread that unforeseen disasters can now strike entirely ‘out of the blue’ and claim countless lives within seconds of time, and struggling in vain to find explanations – which they cannot, yet all of this was clearly announced and made known by God through Christina over the past eighteen years!
It is heartbreaking because firstly, it could have been prevented and secondly, the means of receiving God’s protection have been given to us.
As far back as January 1, 1995, Our Lady told Christina,
“My Daughter, the world is in its decline…..
The weather will be so changeable: heat to cold to ice; rainstorms like the world has not witnessed; hurricanes, floods, earthquakes even in unexpected countries; mudslides…”
Eight years later in Her message for July 16, 2003, Our Lady said,
“The weather-change in many parts of the world is recognized, but only in silence. Why can you not see and hear?
Then act upon what I say, in My yearning desire to help you with love…”
Two years after that, on February 21, 2005 Christina was told,
“Floods will increase all over Europe and throughout the world, leading to a deluge. The sea will gradually rise and come in over the land. This will happen both in Europe and around the world…the sea levels.. will not recede. Heavy rainstorms, hail, gale-storms and tornadoes will increase to terrific levels…and in regions where they do not normally occur. All extremes of weather-change will occur not only within all months but even in any one day as the seasons enter total turmoil…
The following year, on November 3, 2006, Our Lady said,
“The world as you know it is in great turmoil, leading to its purification. The weather changes will escalate more and
more in their behavior, floods, drought, fires, twisters – all those are little but there will also be earthquakes and tsunamis. You are unprepared for it in soul or body. I beg you, My children, turn away from sin and pray, pray…”
Also, in the message on January 15, 2006, Christina was told,
“...The electric storms will become low and dangerous.”
And then in October, 2012, Jesus said,
“...The lightning I once told you about to be "low and dangerous" is now in your world...”
Those who have followed the messages of Jesus and Our Blessed Lady to Christina over the past 27 years have been prepared for the sad and painful events of purification which are at present overtaking the world.
The current flooding which is inundating so many parts of Ireland is described by Met Eireann as "the worst since records began" but most interestingly the Met Office in its reaction and commentary has unsuspectingly echoed the very phrase used by Jesus to Christina as far back as February 21 2005 , "…heavy rainstorms in areas unaccustomed to such storms. They will begin to happen in regions where they do not normally occur…"

Chapel of Our Lady Queen of Peace House of Prayer Texas - October 2015
A woman who was brain-dead and on the life-support machine which the hospital was about to turn off, was healed, opened her eyes and spoke after a matrix medal was placed on her forehead and the Rosary was prayed. Hospital staff said “It’s a miracle”.
Mrs Davette Hendrickson was on a life-support machine in Tomball Hospital, Texas following a severe stroke which left her brain-dead.
Her friend, Ann Mitchell attended Our Lady Queen of Peace House of Prayer at Leander, Texas on Saturday, October 3rd to join in the Novena there and hear the messages of Jesus and Our Blessed Lady received by Christina Gallagher for the world. She picked up some Matrix Medals at the House of Prayer and went on Sunday evening to see Davette at the hospital.
Ann wanted to get a Matrix Medal to Davette because Ann’s own daughter, Laura (Stallones) had been instantly healed a few years ago, through the Matrix Medal, of a long-term addiction to heavy smoking.
She also said she had read on the leaflet with the Matrix Medal that among the many different healings which have taken place through the use of the Matrix Medal were the healing of people in a coma and brain-dead.
When she reached the hospital, Ann placed the Matrix Medal on Davette’s forehead and prayed that Our Lady Queen of Peace would help her. She also told Davette’s husband, Rustie to make sure the medal wasn’t taken away from Davette by the hospital staff. The medal was placed on Davette’s pillow to be kept there. Ann kept praying, especially the Rosary. On Wednesday the hospital told Davettes husband, “Your wife is dead. We are turning off the life-support equipment”. Her husband said, “I need to go away and think. Do not turn it off yet.” His sister-in-law told him, “Let her go”. The Matrix Medal remained on Davette’s pillow. On Thursday she opened her eyes all of a sudden. The nurses were flabbergasted. All they could keep saying was, “Well this is a miracle! We never saw anything like this in here.”
Her brain was suddenly functioning. When her husband said “Give me a kiss”, she puckered her lips immediately to do so. When her brother-in-law asked her for a kiss, she shook her head saying “No”!
Ann, her friend, who had given the Matrix Medal, said I showed the Matrix Medal leaflet to Davette’s son so that he would know without any doubt it was Our Lady who obtained the healing from God.

Caught Again in their Own Lies!
Today’s outrageous attack by Mike Garde, in collaboration with Jim Gallagher, in the Sunday World announcing that Christina Gallagher is sunning herself in the United States and enjoying herself at the expense of other people shows how the same so-called “authority” is entirely disinterested in facts or truth. This is complete and utter slander. First of all Christina Gallagher is not in the United States she is in her home in Ireland because of ill-health – brought upon her by the likes of Mike Garde cruelly hounding her and publishing deceptive material which has no basis in reality. Christina only goes to the United States if invited to do so by the people there and when she does travel there it is not for sunning herself or enjoying herself but to carry out the work given her to do. Not only has her health been irreparably damaged but her very life has been put in danger by the persecution Mike Garde and the likes of him recklessly pursue in an unexplained frenzied obsession that in its most recent ugly phase has continued non-stop for the past 8 years. Of course the public have long observed the obsessive repetition of the same boring lies in both the Sunday World and on TV3 concerning the mission of Our Lady Queen of Peace House of Prayer, but in more recent times as in today’s article they are becoming even more nauseated at being treated like utter fools. Today’s deceptive article which is entirely misleading and slanderous fits the pattern of deception and lies which has come to be seen as Mr Garde’s hallmark. Clearly he is incapable of checking the simplest of facts but prefers to treat readers as gullible fools. Over the years he has shown himself incapable of checking and reporting the fact of over 700 healing and conversion testimonies at the House of Prayer. Just as he clearly lacks an appreciation of the Catholic faith, its teaching and practices. Today’s gaffe is in perfect consistency with his customary deception and slander of Mrs Gallagher.
Challenging the Denial of the Supernatural at work through Christina Gallagher and the House of Prayer, a man tells of the "Miraculous Conversion of my Brother" after a 40 year absence from the Sacraments
This is my testimony of my brother and his miraculous conversion through Christina Gallagher. My brother had been asking me throughout that year; "Can I go to Achill with
you?" and "will you take me with you up to Achill?" and I would say to him "yes, of course you can and I will", but he would later back out and not go. One day we had it all arranged to go and I was to pick him up in Westport on Saturday. Before I set out, I called to visit my mother and she told me not to bother, that he had left a message to say he was not going. That was ok, it saved me the trip to Westport and I headed straight to Achill.
When I arrived at the House of Prayer and spoke to Christina and Fr McGinnity in the dining room, Christina immediately said "Where’s your brother?" I told her he was not coming. She said I should go and get him. "You don’t understand", I explained, "he will have gone straight to the pub and won’t be able to go now". Christina replied, ‘just go and get him’.
On the journey back I told myself how it was just a wild-goose-chase and that it was pointless. I knew he’d be in the pub and I didn’t know which pub or where to find him and even if I did find him I was wasting my time. I was only making the journey because Christina had asked me to.
I went straight to my mother’s house and she suggested that he might have gone to visit a neighbour, that he sometimes did that on the way to the pub. I went there and low and behold there he was drinking tea. I asked him if he would come and he said yes.
We returned to the House of Prayer in time for the Novena prayers. He stood in the doorway and stayed around after the prayers to meet Christina. Immediately after talking to her he asked a priest for Confession. Taking him outside the House of Prayer, the priest heard his Confession.
On the way home my brother told me all about it. He said how he had told the priest his whole life. When I think how he had been away from his Catholic faith and the Sacraments for 40 years before that, and that people deny the supernatural is at work through Christina Gallagher, well I beg to differ. Less than three months later my brother had a cardiac arrest and he never spoke again. He remained brain dead in a vegetative state from then until he died 14 months later.
I thank God for Christina Gallagher and Fr McGinnity, and for how He clearly used His vessel to grant my brother the great grace of a full conversion. If my brother hadn’t gone to the House of Prayer, spoken to Christina and received Confession that day he would not have returned to God before he died.
There are over 800 recorded testimonies of conversion and healing through Christina Gallagher and the House of Prayer Achill. These are on view at the House of Prayer Achill for all to read.
Message to Christina Gallagher from Jesus Christ -10 May 2015
"My little one, your heart gives Me joy.
If only others were able to experience the love you bear in your heart. The generosity and love that flows from your heart is a cause of great joy to Me."
( A private message followed here.)
"Your surrender to My Will in this work has pleased Me. Due to the weight of your cross, you are so weakened you find it so difficult to continue. It takes so little to make you run back to the safe haven in Me. I have drawn much from you but I continue to thirst for souls as the raging waters draw close. Many are in great danger not just in body but, more importantly in soul. How close My Hand is to your world. How it grieves My Heart to see this, such a lack of reparation in so many souls. I have called so many times and My Beloved Mother has called Her children in so many countries throughout the world, only to be ignored.
The world will experience so much turbulence and suppression. Many will be crushed. That is the way of him who is antichrist. He roars so loudly and devours many. That is why I permit you so much suffering not because you have done anything wrong. You are more deeply united in My Heart now than ever before.
You truly bear the heart of a child: it knows no bounds in kindness and generosity, all flowing from your heart filled with love and pain. I am saving an endless number of souls in all you endure and surrender to. I desire the whole world to see your child-like heart, not the outward exterior. It gives some people an excuse only to criticise you, My little one.
The world draws close to many painful calamities. The apostasy is very close, disasters will befall many parts of the world. How your suffering has held back My Hand and saved many in your isle, but for many to no avail. The very sky will roll and fire will fall from the heavens but first I will show My Hand and allow the call of My Mother to be heard once again but just for a short time before this takes place – as a final opportunity, all through the love of My Heart.
Powers in union with antichrist, through their signatures, have left you powerless. Poverty and suppression is planned for many. The air and food are poisoned to bring about sickness pain and death for many. The unity of powers to destroy is with you now. Their blindness is great through their failure to see the greater powers at work in darkness. World War 3 is already being prepared.
My little one, you endure beyond what is desired by Me, but all I will make fruitful for souls.
My Hand… Look… see it… it is close to the world.
Your banks will be restricted and great loss will take place.
I desire all to recognise the meaning of the word, “My vessel”. Its importance is that it means I can fill and empty it as I wish, in the freedom given by My little one even as she is unsure of what this can mean. How Heaven rejoices!
I desire that all become aware of the grave dangers your world is in. Its darkness is so great. The time is drawing close when My Church will be robbed of all that I give of Myself to souls. Hearts have become cold and withdrawn far from Me which will lead to the doors of many churches being closed. There will be no voice heard to uphold Truth: its silence will reach Heaven.
The wormwood will come as in an explosion of poison and bring forth death to many. Danger, danger for the world.
The people who have received great gifts through My vessel and who have rejected them will receive greater death than that of the body.
My little one, you bear many burdens. I will tell you no more tonight. I impart upon you great blessings. Father, Son and Holy Spirit."
On a regular basis, for more than a quarter of a century, the content of the prophetic messages from Our Lady and Jesus, received by Christina Gallagher, have been treated dismissively or greeted with incredulity by many people, on the basis that they are too 'apocalyptic' even to consider, with too much "gloom and doom".
Now, however, startling new and additional information has emerged about apocalyptic revelations given to the surviving Fatima seer, Sr. Lúcia dos Santos. And this makes it clear that not only was Sr. Lúcia shown scenes of unprecedented destruction and death, and world purification, but also that, even in the words she heard and terms used, what Christina Gallagher has been given since 1988, matches closely what the Fatima seer received over seven decades ago.
Until recently, not even those keenly interested in Fatima were aware of this, but an authoritative new book, based among other sources, on public and private documents of Sr. Lúcia, throws new light on it.
The new information also offers indications that the strong, urgent messages the Irish visionary has received, amount to a final warning from Heaven to mankind of what is now imminent, and in fact, amplify the previously unknown prophetic revelations to Sr. Lúcia in 1944.
It also serves to prove that perhaps the biggest reason why Christina Gallagher has suffered such persecution and rejection since 1988, is because the messages to her reveal too much of God’s Truth. How many times has Christina been told by Jesus that those attacking her are instruments being used by the evil one, because of the Truth she carries?
Every possible type of side issue and 'red herring' has been produced over twenty seven years in efforts to undermine and destroy the credibility of the visionary and the heavenly messages she has propagated. In the past decade particularly, unjust and orchestrated attacks on her good name and character have been unprecedented, and have taken a serious toll on her health and well being.
Our Lady's appearances at Fatima are accepted by the Church, and the basic message is known worldwide, yet despite indisputable heavenly signs, the failure to believe and act upon the Fatima message brought disastrous consequences. Now it comes to light that in the midst of World War 2, on 3 January, 1944, Sr. Lúcia was shown frightening scenes of destruction and disaster and the loss of countless human lives in unprecedented natural disasters.
Recall, how in August, 1931, at Rianso in Spain, when Jesus appeared to Sr. Lúcia, he made known His displeasure at the failure of His "ministers" to obey God's command that Russia be consecrated by the Pope and bishops to the Immaculate Heart? And how He told her: "Make it known to My ministers that it has been given to them that they follow the example of the King of France in delaying the execution of My Command, and that they will follow him into misfortune."
It was Christ, through St. Margaret Mary, who had told the King of France, Louis XVI, to consecrate France to His Sacred Heart, but the King failed to act in time. He tried when in prison - but found it was too late, and lost his head in 1793.
When Our Lady first appeared to Christina Gallagher, in early 1988, she immediately made two things clear to the Irish visionary. First, that she wanted the Irish people to be her messengers for the rest of the world, in the urgent mission for souls. And she was warning that there was little time; that God's hand was soon to come over the Earth in justice.
Just a month after the first apparition, on 22 February 1988, Our Lady said: "I hold Ireland in the palm of my hands. I am the Virgin Mary, Queen of Peace. I want them to act on my message for Ireland. It is urgent. Please do not waste any more time. The cup is overflowing...."
Sadly, despite the best efforts of Christina and of her spiritual director Fr. McGinnity in the years following, it became clear that few Irish people were prepared to heed those words. "My children do not want to know me. I beg them, please come back while there is still time," Our Lady pleaded, just months after her first appearance, even as she told Christina: "My child, the Purification will come." How could we ever say, as we suffer the unfortunate consequences, that we have not been warned, time and time again?
WHAT SHE SAW AND HEARD.....
The new book, recently published in English, A Pathway Under the Gaze of Mary, is a fine biographical work written by the Carmelite Nuns of Coimbra, Portugal - nuns who lived there with the surviving Fatima seer. Clearly, they set about this new publication in order to make Sr. Lúcia better known and appreciated. The new work first appeared in Portuguese in 2013, but recently, has been published in English by the World Apostolate of Fatima.
At the time of the revelation, Sr. Lucia was troubled about a request by the Bishop of Leria to write down what she had been given about the 'secret' Fatima prophecy, somehow finding herself unable to convey her knowledge to paper.
On 3 January, 1944, as she knelt before the tabernacle in the convent chapel, asking Jesus to make His Will known to her, Our Lady appeared, and told her not to be afraid. "Be at peace and write what they command you," Our Lady said, "but not what you were given to understand of its meaning."
Then, Sr. Lucia said: "I felt my spirit flooded by a light-filled mystery which is God, and in Him I saw and heard: the point of the flame-like lance which detaches, touches the axis of the earth, which shakes: mountains, cities, towns and villages with their inhabitants are buried. The sea, rivers and clouds leave their bounds, overflow, flood and drag with them into a whirlpool, houses and people in uncountable numbers. It is the purification of the world from the sin it is immersed in. Hatred, ambition, cause destructive wars."
Then after this, she heard the words: "in time, one faith, one baptism, one Church, Holy, Catholic, Apostolic. Heaven in eternity," which filled her with peace and happiness.
What is surprising about this is the fact that the Fatima visionary refers to the "purification of the world from the sin it is immersed in" - making it clear that all she had seen - the axis of the earth shaking, mountains falling, cities, towns and villages disappearing; millions of people dying in a frightening inundation of water from the seas, rivers and the clouds - was due to mankind's sinfulness. Commentators speculate that what is depicted is the effects of an enormous earthquake and mega-tsunami, with landslides, entire countries engulfed and huge waves from which no one can escape.
Is this not what Christina Gallagher has been shown several times, and written and spoken about? Almost a decade before the worst tsunami in recorded history - in the Indian Ocean in 2004 - the deadly event was shown to the Irish visionary, and she documented it. And recall how she related soon after, in early 2005, that a much worse catastrophe, with an earthquake and tsunami of gigantic proportions would occur, devastating large parts of Africa and Australia, and causing enormous loss of life. "The vacuum caused by the earthquake will pull huge portions of land and property into the sea. No equipment in existence will be able to record the enormity of these events," she said.
It was then also that she was made aware that earthquakes would cause a tsunami-type wave to come over Ireland and various other countries, and was shown floods increasing everywhere, "leading to a deluge" and water permanently encroaching upon parts of countries, with Europe and the world affected.
The Irish visionary has always understood and has warned that all the increasing devastation and disastrous events were due to sin, and the widespread rejection of God and of His commandments. "The fullness of what is imminent can be explained only as the hand of God coming on the earth in justice and all will see this being proven," Christina said in 2005. "But only the wise will be able to see the truth, the foolish will not listen until it is too late. The only weapons are sincere prayer, and Our Lady's sacramentals", she added.
Many years before, on 8 August, 1991 Our Lady had told Christina: "My children will lament for not responding to my call. The great deluge is at hand."
During this message, Our Lady wept, as she described how the Irish people, so dear to her Maternal Heart, were not responding to "my call, for the salvation of your souls, and to save your isle."
Before this, it was not known that the Fatima visionary was told anything about the earth's "axis". But all who know the messages received by Christina Gallagher will realise that Jesus told her in 1999, how people should lament for their sins, that His justice was upon the world and advised her: "It is not you they despise, but Me and the Truth you bear." And He added: "The axis of the world is My arm. The sin which fumigates the world, corrodes it. Soon the world will be plunged into the depths of its sin and drink of its own bitterness."
Years earlier, in a 1991 vision which left her shaken, the visionary saw Jesus holding up the globe of the world, and then saw the world held up by a single, crumbling pillar, as Our Lady said:
"The world is help up by pillars. The Pillar is Jesus Christ. The pillars are about to fall. My Divine Son is soon releasing His hand, the Pillar of God. The world will be plunged into the depths of its sin, and drink of its bitterness."
As we've said, the newest Fatima revelations only serve to confirm the authenticity of what Christina Gallagher has sought to propagate, but now, Jesus has told her: "The time is NOW." The world has already been plunged into the depths of its own sin, and its purification has already begun....
IRELAND'S EYE Magazine- June 2015 Issue
Catholic writer and journalist Martina Caffrey, MA in Theology, rebuts media sensational calls for the House of Prayer in Achill and Christina Gallagher
to be excommunicated, in her letter to the Irish Catholic, Nov 2014.
Dear Editor, Cathal Barry’s article “Church should excommunicate House of Prayer founder-Claim” (October 30th 2014) was an outrageous attempt to cause
sensationalism on such a serious issue. Excommunication is not a word which should be invoked lightly. It denies the person the sacraments, especially Holy Communion. To use this word merely to create a sensational headline is surprising in a Catholic newspaper! If the facts had been investigated, it would have been discovered that there is absolutely no veracity to these claims. Christina Gallagher and her spiritual director Fr McGinnity have always upheld and unswervingly professed the Catholic faith. The messages given to Christina by Jesus and Our Lady contain nothing but Catholic truth and doctrine. They are a call to repentance, Confession, Mass and the praying the Rosary is encouraged.
The claim that miracles attributed to the House of Prayer are unverified is also mistaken. There have been hundreds of healings, several of which are verified by medical professionals as being without medical explanation and meeting Church requirements in declaring a miracle.
The article also failed to mention that Cardinal Brady has refused to meet with those who oppose the House of Prayer because Fr McGinnity has not broken any Church or civil law and is free to be associated with the House of Prayer.
Martina Caffrey M.A. Theology,
IRISH CATHOLIC- Letters to the Editor - November 2014
Martina Caffrey's further Response to Outrageous Cries in Irish Media for Excommunication of the House of Prayer Achill and Christina Gallagher
The sinking standards of Irish journalism have been highlighted once again in the last couple of weeks. Sensational headlines sell papers and there is not a thought
spared for the truth behind the story. This can be seen once again in the coverage of the Irish independent and even more worryingly, in the Catholic media such as the Irish Catholic newspaper, as they failed in their duty to research and present the facts when those who oppose the House of Prayer and Christina Gallagher once again raised their voices of outrage and misunderstanding. Headlines calling for the excommunication of Christina Gallagher were splashed across the articles concerned as those who have become vocal in their hatred for Christina and the messages she is given by Our Lady and Jesus, howl from the sidelines and catch the attention of those looking for sensation to sell their newspapers.
“Excommunication” is a word which is often bandied about in the press by those who want to create a sensation and grab the attention of the public to a Church issue. It is used too easily by those who don’t understand what it means and don’t know Church Law. Those who use it often display their ignorance and incomprehension of the Catholic faith and a lack of the basic Christian principles of mercy and forgiveness. Some of the figures who have come to the fore in the recent attack on Christina, have called for her to be investigated and excommunicated by the Church for heresy and unverified claims of miracles. A quick glance at the spot of the internet inhabited by these people and their fellow conspirators shows a place full of anger, hatred and bitterness. They claim to defend the Catholic faith from “cults” which they have labelled Christina and the House of Prayer yet they lack the basic fundamentals of Christianity in their tirades.
Excommunication is not something which can be handed out easily, as those who demand it as a course of action against Christina Gallagher mistakenly believe, just because they do not agree with the wording of the messages given to her. They allege that excommunication is a necessary step against Christina because of heresy and unverified claims of miracles. However an investigation into the work of the House of Prayer and the messages given to Christina would show that there is no heresy involved there. As written about previously in "An Overview of Christina’s Messages" , a study of the messages given to Christina by Our Lady and Jesus throughout the years show the messages to be in harmony with Scripture, that Catholic doctrine is promoted and upheld and there is no heresy involved in the messages received by Christina or the mission of the House of Prayer which is a call to return to Jesus in the Sacraments of the Church and to repent and pray the Rosary for the salvation of souls. The Catholic truth and doctrine contained in the messages given to Christina are backed up by the in-depth theological teaching given each weekend at the House of Prayer by Christina’s spiritual director, Fr. McGinnity, concerning the messages given to Christina and their basis in Catholic doctrine.
The further claims made by those who are attacking the messages received by Christina is that she makes unverified claims of miracles. This attack shows a clear lack of knowledge concerning the House of Prayer as many of the healings attributed to the House of Prayer have been verified by medical doctors as miraculous and without medical explanation and the testifying of these healings follow the outline of Church practice in the verification of a miracle. Several of these healings have met the standards required by the Church to announce an official miracle such as those used to attribute sainthood. This makes the claim by those who are attacking the House of Prayer and Christina Gallagher baffling as a simple research into these miracles and healings would provide the proof which upholds the messages and graces given by Heaven at the House of Prayer.
These recent attacks and the subsequent reporting of them by the media, even in the Catholic media, shows a lack of research, understanding or desire for the truth. It is easy to cause sensation and throw around words which will cause outrage and fear such as excommunication and heresy. It is easy to stir up hatred and fear and prey on the concerns of those who do not fully understand the intention behind it and who do not understand the errors which are being manipulated and presented as facts by those with an ulterior motive. As members of the House of Prayer and Our Lady’s Confraternity, we strive to live the Truth of Jesus’ teachings within His Church. These are the same teachings which we are strongly urged to follow in the messages given by Jesus and His Blessed Mother to Christina Gallagher as they compliment and reinforce the teachings and doctrine of the Catholic Church. The attacks against Christina Gallagher and the messages given to her by Heaven bring to mind a warning given by Jesus in the Bible to those who in the millennia to come would follow Him and proclaim His Teachings to the world, "Blessed are you when people insult you and persecute you, and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of Me. Rejoice and be glad, for your reward in heaven is great; for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.” (Matt 5: 11-12)

Young writer Martina Caffrey, M.A. in Theology, has specialised in Catholic writing over the last 10 years.
Her writings include work published in the Hibernian magazine and the Catholic Voice newspaper. She is author of the book “A Father’s Love” and is working on a follow-up book on the apparitions of Our Lady around the world. Her academic research is into the theology of the liturgy based on Pope Benedict XVI’s writings as Pope and Cardinal, with a further book in the pipeline.
In October 2012 a recording was made at Our Lady Queen of Peace House of Prayer in the US, at the conclusion of Holy Mass. When viewed it was found to have a remarkable light coming from the host, pulsating and lighting up the casing of the monstrance.

"During the Night Vigil as I was praying the Rosary I just closed my eyes, when some very strong and powerful sensation went through my whole body, and I was brought to tears. I cried and cried… I knew some great change had taken place within my entire being. From that moment onward, I have had no urge to touch drugs, thank God,” he explained. “Not just that, but I have had the desire for daily Mass, Holy Communion, Prayer, the Rosary” he added, explaining how he had gone back to God and received the sacraments...”
"I am 27 years only and first visited the House of Prayer Achill in 2003. There on the Saturday night vigil I felt a deep peace flow through me... in it held a healing, security and fulfilment my heart had so desperately yearned for over many years of hurt... I received the grace to be happy without having to get drunk, take drugs or lead a promiscuous lifestyle.”
