EVENING SIGH - 4th Day Mary, My Mother, as I cannot grasp the depth of your sanctity, I cannot understand the measure of your grace. It is beyond the understanding of men and even of angels. http://eveningsigh.blogspot.com/2013/12/evening-sigh-4th-day.html

"Through the Eyes of Jesus" is translated into 14 Languages: English (imprimatur Bishop Percival Fernandes under title 'Jesus Speaks to me') French German Dutch Italian Portugese Slovenian Arabic ( imprimatur Latin Patriarch of Jerusalem Fouad Twal) Polish Spanish Korean Russian Mayalayam Kiribati The 2 imprimaturs were requested by a Msqr. and priests in the countries where the priests publish them and were readily granted by the local Bishop's. Alan was then told of the imprimaturs. There have been many healings and conversions in reading this book – Muslims, Christians, Jews, Hindus, etc. Alan has the written support of his Archbishop in Perth, Australia and many others around the world. Archbishop Barry Hickey supported Alan for 17 yrs and then Archbishop Costello and auxllliary Bishop Don Sproxton have also given permission since then. All 3 bishop's of Perth have done so in writing. Through the Eyes of Jesus (Volume 2) August 8, 1996 I looked to My disciples and said to them, "My friends, I would like to tell you a story." They all looked at Me in silence awaiting My words. "One day a man went to the temple in Jerusalem. As he went inside he felt within himself that he had no right to be there. He saw many of the wrongs he had done in his life and how often he had broken God’s commandments. As he sat at the back of the temple, he wondered, could God forgive him…and he wondered if God would help him change to become a true son of God.” "He looked at himself and thought, ‘No, God could not love me, for I am so bad. I wish I could be like those who are at the front of the temple in prayer. God surely loves them more than me.’ At the front of the temple were many praying and discussing scripture among themselves, and they truly looked holy.” "The man got up and left the temple. Outside he met a beggar who was thin from the lack of food. When the beggar asked for alms, the man looked at him and thought, ‘Poor man, he is suffering, so I will help him.’ The man brought from his purse his last coin and gave it to the beggar, who seeing it was his last coin said, ‘But you have nothing for yourself.’ The man replied, ‘Yes, but your need is greater than mine. I can go without for a while. You take it and buy some food.’ "The beggar said, ‘I will buy some food if you will share it with me, kind sir." "The man answered, ‘It would be my pleasure to eat with you,’ and together they went to buy some food. As they were walking along, they passed another beggar whose clothes were torn and he looked so cold on this winter’s day. The man thought, ‘Poor soul, he is so cold.’ He looked at his coat and thought, ‘I do not need this. I have another,’ so he took it off and gave it to the beggar, who smiled with gratitude as he was given the coat.” "The beggar then looked at the man, who was now shaking with cold after giving his coat away, and then said, ‘I cannot take this, for it will leave you cold.’ "The man smiled back saying, ‘It is all right, I have another at home.’ ‘Yes, but you are cold now,’ said the beggar with the coat.” "The first beggar said, ‘He has given me money for food and we are going to buy some to eat together. Come with us, and if we walk close together we may keep him warm.’ The three of them walked off arm in arm, and the man in the middle was kept warm by his two new friends.” "As they walked, they came to a beggar with bleeding feet, as he had no shoes to wear. The man looked at the beggar’s feet and thought, ‘Poor soul, look how sore his feet are,’ so he took off his own shoes and said to the beggar, ‘Here, wear these to protect your feet.’ "The beggar with sore feet was happy to receive the shoes, but then said, ‘You have nothing for your feet. You will cut them on the stones.’ "The man replied, ‘It is all right, for once I get home I can bathe them and put other shoes on.’ The first beggar spoke up, explaining about the money and inviting this beggar to join them for a meal. Together, arm in arm, the four of them went to buy food, with the beggars lifting the man slightly off the floor, so his feet would not hurt so much.” "As they walked, they passed a group of the men who had been praying in the front of the temple, who, as they saw the four approaching, crossed the street to avoid them. One of the men from the temple said out loud, ‘There are so many beggars nowadays they spoil the city.’ "And another said, ‘Yes, the temple guards should beat them and chase them away.’ "The man who had been in the back of the temple stepped out to protest. ‘These beggars do no harm, they just need some charity,’ he said. "The group of men began to laugh and one said, ‘look, a beggar defending beggars,’ and then they started to throw stones at him, shouting, ‘Be off with you, you trash!’ "As the stones hit him, the man tried to cover his face with his arms, but one of the stones hit him on the head, and he fell to the ground bleeding. The three beggars rushed around him to protect him from the stones with their bodies, as the men on the side continued to stone them, shouting, ‘Vermin, scum of the earth, go from our streets.’ "The three picked up the man and carried him away, as the abuse and the stoning continued. They took him to his house, where he lived alone, and laid him on his bed. They began to wash his wounds and his eyes flickered open, as he said, ‘My friends, I am dying. I know I am.’ ‘No, no,’ they protested, ‘you will be all right.’ ‘My friends, I feel my life slipping away, but I am happy to die with you at my side, and I was happy to be called one of you,’ he said. ‘You will not die,’ said the first beggar. ‘What about our meal together. You promised.’ ‘I think it is a promise I cannot keep, but I ask a promise of you in return,’ he said, weakly. ‘Whatever you ask, we will do,’ replied all three. ‘Pray for me, for I know I have offended God, and I know I have broken His commandments. I only wish in my life I had time to repent and do penance,’ he said, as his eyes flickered. ‘We will, we will always pray for you. You were so kind to us and so gentle,’ they said. ‘It is the least I could do for you,’ said the man. Then he cried, ‘God forgive me my sins, for I love You’, as his head fell to the side and he died. "I tell you this, the man who gave to the poor was giving to God, for when you give to the needy, it is a gift of love to God. The man who shared his love and friendship with the poor, was sharing with God, for his love came from God. The man who defended the poor and gave his life for them, was giving his life for God, for when you offer a sacrifice for the poor, it is a sacrifice offered to God in love.” "This man saw his weaknesses, but did not recognize his strengths. He asked forgiveness for his mistakes, but never asked for a reward for his goodness. This man is a man who would be welcomed in Heaven, unlike those who parade themselves in fine clothes, sit at the front of the temple, pray hard in the sight of others, and then in life act as if they are the judges of men, as if they are guaranteed a place in Heaven. Men who treat others with scorn, reject the weak, the poor, and the less fortunate, these men would find the gates of Heaven closed to them.” "Heaven is the reward of the humble soul who loves God, hell the reward of the proud soul who loves himself. To serve God, always be humble and always help others without concern for yourself." “My disciples looked at Me thinking on what I had just said. Then Judas spoke, "Imagine giving your shoes away. That was a stupid thing to do", he said. "Better to give your shoes away than your soul," I replied, as everyone remained silent, still considering My words. ‘To give to the poor is a grace from God and to give from your heart is a gift of God’s love,’ I said, then lay back to sleep.” Through the Eyes of Jesus (Volume 3) July 17, 1997 I awoke with thoughts of Jerusalem and what awaited Me there; I knew it would not be long now. I looked at My friends around Me preparing for the day, and I felt a sadness within that soon I would have to leave them. As I looked at Judas, I wanted to cry for My dear friend whom I loved so much, and yet I knew he must betray Me for Scripture to be fulfilled. Judas turned and looked at Me smiling weakly, wondering why I would be staring at him. A tear rolled down My cheek as I saw his soul within and I knew his weakness was stronger than his love. Peter came to Me asking, "Lord, why are You crying?" "For a lost soul, My friend, for a lost soul," I said quietly. Peter said, "Oh," not understanding what I meant. He left Me to My thoughts to return a short while later with some bread and some wine mixed with water which had been warmed by the fire. "Here, Lord, You must be hungry," he said offering the food and drink to Me. "And You will need Your strength for the day ahead." "Thank you, Peter. Let us say a prayer together that all of us have the strength for what lies ahead," I said, thinking of Jerusalem. We started to pray and everyone joined in but the prayers this morning were very somber and mournful. When we finished and I began to eat, young James said out loud cheerfully, "Why is everyone so sad? We will soon be in Jerusalem for the Passover. What a joyful time we will have there. Think of it, my brothers, Jerusalem!" The anticipation in his eyes set fire to them and his excitement soon spread to the others, who began to discuss the Passover Festival with great joy. Peter said to Me, "Lord, it will be good to celebrate together in Jerusalem. I enjoy it there because there are so many people praising God and celebrating together. It is a holy time. I am looking forward to it." "Yes, Peter, it is a holy time and this Passover will be one that echoes throughout eternity," I stated sadly. He looked at Me not knowing what I meant. "My friends," I said out loud, "this coming celebration that we will share in Jerusalem is one that I shall treasure forever. I will be with My dear brothers and I will share My love in a way never experienced before, for I will give you My body and My blood as a joining of our hearts. In Me you will become one and in Me you will share My love with the world." They were all looking at Me a little uncertain until I said, "Come on, My friends, let us make ready and be on our way. Today is a good day for walking and it will bring us a day closer to Jerusalem." I stood up smiling at them as they still sat there looking at Me. "And the next town is not so far away, let us go and pray in the synagogue there for a while." Peter stood up next to Me and put his arm around Me saying, "Were You go, Lord, we go." The others got up and began to collect their few belongings when Judas came over to Me and whispered, "Do not be sad, Lord, You will have a good time in Jerusalem. I will see to that." I smiled at him, as I replied, "I know you will, My friend, I know you will.
