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)
29th November 2014
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.
On Saturday July 5, 2014, as Christina led the Sorrowful Mysteries of The Holy Rosary during the Novena at Our Lady's House of Prayer in Achill, she was drawn into an experience in which she was walking on the road to Calvary behind Our Blessed Lord. There were groups of people dressed in old dark clothes accompanying and Christina could sense their intense hatred for Jesus. She wanted to do something for Jesus but was intimidated by the crowd.
Then on Calvary Christina experienced a moment where she standing by one side of the cross, her face at the level of Jesus' knees. She knew He was breathing His last. Then she could see blood spurt from the side of Jesus unto the earth. When she looked up she witnessed a great shaft of intense light which broke through the overhanging dark clouds and enveloped the Body of Jesus. (She was aware that the great darkness over Calvary was caused by the huge gathering of demons assembled in a final concerted effort to unnerve Our Lord and prevent his accomplishing the great act of Redemption.) Then Christina could hear a strong burst of rapturous joy like music carried from a distance on the wind. Although she knew it was singing, the harmony was so perfect it sounded more like music. She understood this singing was the jubilant voices of all in Heaven rejoicing in the victory of Jesus - not that they ever doubted He would triumph but it was their celebration of the accomplishment of salvation.
Then Jesus spoke to Christina and said He desired that on July 16th every conceivable space in the chapel be filled with flowers and that every petal be later preserved and encased and those enabled to obtain one would be greatly blessed. Christina understood the petal was to be carried on one's person or worn. She then saw radiant light emanating from Jesus' Heart and enveloping an abundance of flowers, making them resemble a sea of light. She was aware that there was a much greater depth to the gift which was not yet revealed to her.
On July 11th, when Christina entered the chapel to pray, she went before Our Lady's Image on the altar. The sanctuary area became surrounded with a mist. Christina could even experience the moisture from the mist as she drew her breath. The prayer she found herself offering was not of herself, but inspired,
'Holy Mother, thank you for your "yes" to God, for through your "yes" , salvation has come to the souls of all humanity. You were filled with the Holy Spirit and ever since, God has flowed His Spirit through you, permitting you to intercede and gain many and great gifts for the souls of humanity. Holy Mother, You are searching for God's lost children because you are one with the yearning of God to reunite His life in the souls of His children….'
When Christina thanked Our Lady for the gift of the Petal promised by Jesus, Our Lady who appeared to Christina as coming out of the Picture with the Roses, replied, "Blessed, indeed, are they who will be privileged to receive one of those Petals, for not only the contents of My Son's Heart but that of Mine also will be emptied upon the petals. (Christina understood that the Petal will permit in a powerful way the union in soul of The Two Hearts with the person carrying the petal.) "Is it like a relic, Holy Mother?," Christina then asked. Our Lady responded, "My daughter, this is much greater than any earthly relic. Not only My Son's Heart but My own Heart will have touched it".
On July 13, 2014, Jesus spoke to Christina, saying that those carrying a petal would be protected in body and soul in the dangerous times that are soon to be upon us: that the petals should be touched to the bodies of the sick, that those possessing a petal and who would be living at the time of the great sign that is to be given throughout the world, would be able both to see the sign with their eyes and also to experience it in their hearts: that any person privileged to obtain one of those Petals, will experience many great gifts bestowed by their means.
As Christina led the Rosary on July 25th, 2014 in Our Lady's House, she was suddenly drawn into a direct experience of Jesus who appeared before her in radiant white. Behind and above Jesus appeared the Head and Shoulders of the Heavenly Father, followed by the two Hearts of Jesus and Mary. Only the Heart of Jesus dripped Blood. As this happened, an angel swiftly came holding a golden cup like the upper part of a chalice and saved the dripping Blood. There was an explosion of light and Christina could see white rose petals swirling everywhere. When the petals all settled, she could see countless Holy Communion hosts coming down upon them.
Our Lady could then be seen by the side of Jesus in a most loving attitude.
Finally, when this experience had ended, Christina was shown an immense gold crown which she understood to be that of Jesus. The crown, which was bathed in light, was the full width – in a circle – of the entire chapel. Christina was enlightened in knowledge that those in the chapel would be receiving the graces through the Kingship of Jesus.
Then Our Lady came exquisitely dressed in white, radiating – as always – light from Her Person through the beauty of Her garment. She wore her normal crown decorated with many coloured stones, glistening in the light. In the same knowledge Christina was led to understand that those present received many different graces signified by the many differently coloured stones of her crown.
Christina could see many angels swaying in playful movement around the bottom of Our Lady’s dress.
She was given to understand that this scene revealed the close union of God and Our Blessed Mother with His people present in prayer.
Message from Jesus received by Christina on July 25, 2014 at 6.00 am.;
"My daughter, I desire you tell the people of the world,
the time has come to envelop you all in the poisons prepared for you by the enemy. Get ready and arm yourselves with prayer. Pray like you have never done. Darkness spewing from the evil one is everywhere and it has reached every corner of the earth. You are being poisoned in body and soul, and spiritually blinded to block you from understanding all that is taking place throughout the world.
World leaders are preparing for World War III. Its doors will soon be opened.
The preparation for the world's financial fall is in place.
O My people, prepare yourselves for the great abomination.
There will be great suffering.
Those of My people who have done damage to My Mother's House will cry to heaven for mercy. Soon they will see their mistakes for allowing themselves to be led by the evil one. O how such deception and lies led to so many souls being lost through the great deceit!
My people, be wise and receive Truth and Wisdom which flows from My Mother's House. Woe to the one who has been so foolish!
A cancer will come on the wind and grow in My people. Its poison will kill many, many people.
The hate within the hearts of so many will grow: a craving for bloodshed and for the destruction of those of the Light will be great.
My dear daughter, be at peace. Your heart is deeply troubled. You lack understanding of what you endure. You experience in your spirit the dangers which are to happen to so many.
The weather changes will know no bounds, leading to My Hand ascending in the sky for all to see but there will be great darkness and suffering upon the earth before My Hand comes forth to separate the darkness from the light.
People, you are asleep and unaware that you are being poisoned. The air and food are full of poison. The water is reaching a level that is toxic. All is bringing about a great destruction and disease to the body of all of you throughout the world.
There is danger everywhere. Your hospitals are withdrawing their care from all of you, bringing about a great disease that will take the lives of many.
Pray, pray, My people.
Those of you who are able to obtain one of My petals - blessed are they, for many will crave for its great protection through Me, your Lord God and that of My Mother's love and mercy and outpouring of grace.
Wake up, My people - too long you have been in your sleep of death!
I bless you this day brought about by the love and mercy of My Sacred Heart and that of My Mother's Heart. I bless you all and grant you great mercy on this special day. Many souls are set free from Purgatory today.
My daughter, you and My special brother Gerard, you receive My outpouring of grace, mercy and abundant blessings for the time ahead. You will be protected from the web of evil surrounding the world and holding so many in its grasp. Be at peace. You have served Me well. Remain in the light of My life for souls. Many will need your guidance that is flowing from you, My vessel.
I bless you all who are here this day so special to Me.
My Heart and the Heart of My Mother rejoice here today.
I bless you and impart My peace to you, Father, Son and Holy Spirit."
Message May 31st, 2014
During the Rosary at the House of Prayer.
As Christina led the Rosary she received from Jesus a very serious Message, which she related as follows: “Jesus says His Mother's House is despised and that this is a reflection of how He Himself is despised.
Jesus invites you to come here to His Mother’s House more often than you normally come, because the more often you come and help in whatever way you can, the more graces you will receive. This is because there is a situation shortly to come about in our world (Christina herself was given to feel this situation will be in place very soon).
Major countries in the world are even at this moment plotting and planning in a way that is posing danger to the whole world. You are being asked to come here more often than normal because you will need the graces which are to be obtained in this way on account of all that is coming. For example, in that way you will receive the grace of enlightenment which you will need in order to be able to deal with your situation as time progresses.
What will be brought about in the world will be a great injustice. You will feel paralysed on every side and completely oppressed. Everything will be made so difficult. The graces Jesus promises to flood you with will be all you will have, otherwise you will be drained and possibly drift into darkness and danger.
Some of you will find it very difficult to respond but when it comes about you will clearly understand. If you respond as Jesus desires He will grant these graces not only to you personally but to countless others through your response.”
(Christina said she was withholding details conveyed by Jesus regarding the countries and individuals He mentioned to her but she would convey those to her Spiritual Director – as she always did – for his discretion.)
Message from Jesus to Christina
21st April 2014 (Easter Monday)
"I want you to guide My people in the message I give you. Your part is only to relate what I tell you: do not be troubled by those who choose not to hear or respond to it. My justice will take care of those who are in rebellion to truth and who choose to live in the desire of the flesh and its fulfilment. Foolish are those who follow the path of darkness and folly.
My daughter, you must be taken care of and respected. There are those who chose to follow their own guidance rather than what I give you. You are the vessel that I have chosen to be filled with My guidance for My people – the people for whom I shed My Blood in order to set them free from death. With deep love I surrendered unto death. How few there are to thank Me! So many surrender to the path of darkness and reject Me and My Law. Woe to him who searches the world for sensation on many paths and leads many souls to perdition.
But soon there will be a war to spread throughout the world and My Law will be despised and My Church trampled upon.
Pray for My people… I thirst for their souls.
Pray for the leaders of My Church and all who lead My flock and all leaders who make decisions in the world. So many are blind in their decisions and like Simon, “the reed”, they blow with the wind of popularity, not aware of its consequences.
When the sky will darken and will not resume its day, fear will fill many hearts. The earth will shake and great balls of fire will fall from the sky. Then I will reveal Myself and call upon the faithless one who went along with darkness, in the evil one. The Angel of My justice will strike and there will be cries and great sorrow that so many had a heart open to the flesh and to the world, allowing Lucifer to plunder the souls of many.
My daughter, many will desire to find fault with this message, but not for long… How so many souls I desired to draw into My Life were not permitted to see and recognise My Hand in My Mother’s House! How all this darkness in suppression and rejection of My Word has caused it to fall on deaf ears and has permitted the loss of many souls for whom I, Jesus, have yearned. And all this flamed by ill will and pride, led by a stubborn heart unopen to Me.
My daughter, you will experience the lack of trust and love and you will experience loneliness. Your heart has been breaking in this way already but it will get more painful. Offer it to Me and pray for those who bring it about.
Tell My people that they will be rewarded for all they do. My vessel, I know they do not understand how important your little life is to Me for their sake. Tell My son Gerard, this Mission is the greatest work he will ever do for Me.
My people, I tell you it is so important for as many of you as possible to have the picture of My Mother known as “the picture with the roses” because of its protection. Anyone of you able to obtain a picture for others will be doing a great good and I ask My children throughout the world to do as My children have done in the Americas – to get that special picture and bring it around as many areas as possible that are highly populated, continuing to pray the Rosary while doing so.
My daughter, forgive and pray for your enemy. Do it for Me and show your love for Me by doing so.
I bless you in My Name forever; In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.
Christina and her spiritual director stress the following : Please do not force this message or its contents on any person.
That includes not imposing the picture of Our Lady with the Roses
on anyone without it being requested.
It should not be publicly carried around walking and praying publicly.
Our Lord referred to what His children had done in the Americas:
they drove around the district with the picture in the car praying the
Rosary respectfully and privately among themselves in their car
unknown to anyone else.
January 21st, 2014
Jesus spoke to Christina:
"My dear little one, I have drawn much from you. My Sacred Heart hurts to see that you are rejected, and treated in the most horrible way, as if you were a low life. My people, I say to you, hear Me your Lord God and respond before it is too late. Pray, Pray!
Soon, all of you will see for yourselves the reality of My calling, and the value of My vessel.
My vessel, in your world, several evil plans are being put in place to bring about the suppression of many people. Money will be worthless. You will endure deep hurt, as your money will be drawn away from you, but all for the wrong reasons and you will not be able to refuse.
There will be trials and more trials, and those of you, My people who withstood the picture of My Mother in your homes, truly leave yourselves open to an even greater suffering. Surrender now, for I will not plead in My Mercy with you again.
There has been much taken in many ways from this mission, through the inspiration of the evil one. That is why there is more suffering than I desire, because they have opened the doors to darkness not only of their hearts, but of all I have asked for your protection. My dear vessel, how you have suffered, even to such a degree as to grieve My own Heart. I will show My people all of the ways they have rejected My word when they come before Me. I will withdraw from such persons who dare mock Me and My Word. Mercy will be withdrawn.
I love all My people. I gave My life for each one. For those who are cold and lack knowledge of Me and My word, I will have greater mercy than for those who are lukewarm and full of doubt, failing to hear Me and fulfil My request for the souls for whom I thirst for eternity. It is denied them. How can I lavish on such people My mercy and protection, when they only mock Me, their Lord, who gave Life for all?
I have told you of the many events coming to the world which are beyond man’s ability to solve. All is like a boiling volcano, ready to burst. Can you not recognise the signs of your times? I have made known to you what is at hand. But My word is like the seeds that fell among the rocks, they are unable to grow. You are rich soil if you choose, and you can bear good fruit. But in your rejection, you bear no fruit to fulfil My word and respond. You will hurt, but your hurt is My permitting you to be moulded.
The glaciers, the disasters and the diseases I have told you about, are upon you. Be bearers, to say without fear, the Lord is near! Be at peace, my peace I give you, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.”
Major physical healings supported by medical and scientific documentation
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.
The Very Rev Dr Gerard McGinnity is pictured in the video leading the congregation at Our Lady Queen of Peace House of Prayer in the US
"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.”
