About us

There is not really much to say here except that i was in the Capuchin Religious order for two years in the mid nineties and we had some very good scripture and theology classes. Fr Gervaeus Corcoran who is a theologian gave us a very good class on the Trinity. Fr Clancy S.J. gave us a very good class on the Eucharist. I was away from the Church for about 6 to 7 years in the late eighties and had become an unwilling atheist but i returned in early 1991. I really wanted to believe in God because the world looked bleak without Him and i wanted to believe that when i die that i would be going somewhere! Modern Technology, evolution, dinosaurs, psychic phenomena and a lot of other things made it nearly totally impossible for me to believe in God but one day while searching through a drawer i found a leaflet by accident with the 12 promises of Our Lord to Saint Margaret Mary and i read them all but the 12th one was the solution to my problem because Our Lord said that anyone who received Him in Holy Communion worthily on the First Friday of 9 consecutive months would receive the grace of a happy death! To me a happy death can only mean that i would one day get to Heaven and so i thought to myself "I don't believe in God but i will do these 9 First Fridays and when i die if i discover God does exist then i can remind Him about this 12th promise! This promise will be my insurance policy for eternity!" I had it worked out that over 9 months i would be only wasting 5 to 6 hours in total! I had no plan to go to Mass on Sundays but just on the First Friday of each of the 9 months and forgot about the receiving Holy Communion worthily part as well because i had not been to confession i'd say for over ten years. I started the first Fridays on the 1st of February 1991 but in a short while i got my conscience back and realised i should be going to Mass on Sundays and eventually that i should go to confession quick! My mother had the book "My Mass" by Fr Joseph Putz S.J. written in 1947 and everytime i passed by it on the bookshelf i had a strong feeling i should read it. I was amazed at what i read in that book because i had never understood or even had any idea what the Consecration of the Mass is and i asked myself why did nobody ever tell me this before? This book explained the meaning of all the other parts of the Mass as well but it was the Consecration which amazed me. I had often heard the Mass been called a sacrifice but had never until then known the reason for it. I decided then to try and go to Mass everyday if possible knowing that it is the most powerful prayer on earth and that i had a lot of time to make up for! Later i started praying the Rosary and in recent years i started to notice a pattern between Adam and Eve and Jesus and Mary. I felt that i was obliged by God to do something with these ideas and with reluctance started to put them down on paper and then in about 2003 i started to use my mothers computer and thought eventually of doing a website with my scraps of paper. In 1993 i went to Knock for the feast of Divine Mercy and on the video on the bus i heard the Christian evangelist Mr Schuler say something like "When Mercy is deserved it is no longer mercy but Justice" and that phrase has helped me to love this word "Mercy" which is the greatest attribute of God. I remember in school we had to write an essay on the character Portia in Shakespeares play "The merchant of Venice" i was one of the worst in the class at writing essays but i was delighted that the teacher mentioned (very reluctantly) while glancing at me that only two students had bothered to mention Portia's excellent and famous discourse on Justice and Mercy to Shylock the Jew which is known as "The quality of mercy". Shylock had lent a large sum of money to Antonio whom he secretly despised with the agreement that in the unlikely event that he failed to repay that Shylock could claim one pound of his flesh as payment from any part of his body. Shylock had hoped to be able to kill Antonio from the start and did not hesitate to claim his pound of flesh from over Antonios heart. Portia was Antonio's girlfriend in disguise as his defence lawyer!

Sacred Heart of Jesus

"It is enthroned in the heart of kings"

Portia: "The quality of mercy is not strain'd,
It droppeth as the gentle rain from heaven
Upon the place beneath: it is twice blest;
It blesseth him that gives and him that takes:
'Tis mightiest in the mightiest: it becomes
The throned monarch better than his crown;
His sceptre shows the force of temporal power,
The attribute to awe and majesty,
Wherein doth sit the dread and fear of kings;
But mercy is above this sceptred sway;
It is enthroned in the hearts of kings,
It is an attribute to God himself;
And earthly power doth then show likest God's
When mercy seasons justice. Therefore, Jew,
Though justice be thy plea, consider this,
That, in the course of justice, none of us
Should see salvation: we do pray for mercy;
And that same prayer doth teach us all to render
The deeds of mercy. I have spoke thus much
To mitigate the justice of thy plea;
Which if thou follow, this strict court of Venice
Must needs give sentence 'gainst the merchant there."

Our Lord bared His chest on the cross and gave us all more than His pound of flesh because He offered up His whole body for us on the cross and He has made Himself available for us to receive in the Blessed Sacrament.
