True Life in God Testimonies from Throughout the World...
While sitting listening to Vassula being interviewed by a
Philippino TV crew I was more than surprised to find myself
deeply moved by her story - I who had not even wanted to
accompany a friend to visit her, such was my skepticism. As she
spoke I realized that God truly was communicating with her - her
calm, serene yet down to earth manner was striking. At this time
I was living a life where God or the Church had no place.......
through meeting Vassula a whole new spiritual world was opened
up to me and I felt a real need to change my lifestyle. I then
began to read the messages for the first time and this confirmed
my conviction that these messages are from God. Meeting Vassula
and reading the messages she receives brought me back to the
sacraments after many many years. Now nine years later I am
still learning from these messages that strongly support my
faith and that led me to read and to understand the Bible for
the first time.
My life before TLIG was searching for god and a "personal
relationship" with him. The first time I read TLIG I felt his
real presence. Before I read TLIG my prayer life was not so
good. TLIG taught me to read Scripture and feel his voice
talking to me personally. I feel TLIG has been a True
Gift from the Lord as he teaches me personally thru Vassula. I
now, for instance, always say prayers before meals and am never
ashamed or intimidated to say them at a public restaurant. My
family as well. I feel TLIG gave me a true "love" for Jesus.
I am very impressed and inspired by Vassula's messages that
the Lord has given her and with her responding like she has.
Vassula's revelations are the most consoling and uplifting that
I have ever heard or read …
I try to read a portion every day, along with a portion of my
bible. I am also saying the prayers. I never meet a single human
being, (I'm 69 years old) who was capable of writing the way
your writing, the most profound I've ever come across. No
priest, no man or woman I ever met was capable of writing that
way. I know its real, so real its scary. I admire and respect
[After the books were recommended]: I just said "Dear Lord, I
don't want to fall into error, but I also don't want to miss
anything you have for me … I'm going to give this a fair chance,
trusting You will lead me and protect me." With each page I was
drawn more into the freedom and child-likeness God wants us to
have with Him. I'd be up most nights until 1, 2 or 3 in the
morning. Putting the book down would be like saying goodbye to
Jesus & I wanted that peace of His presence never to end. I had
given several books away … one was to a Methodist; she loved it!
Another was an RCIA candidate, a fallen-away Catholic & she too
loved it. [She began showing videos of Vassula's talks to
groups]. Sometimes moms brought children; teens came back
bringing other teens (or even parents!) One night we had 16 high
school Catholics … I would open my door and whole groups would
be standing there. I hadn't called any of them! … Between July 1
and July 30 we had a total of 190 people … of which 53 were
I am 72 years of age, I have lived in great darkness and
rebellion for many years not really knowing God's love for me.
Even after receiving the Gift of the Holy Spirit I remained
selfish and judgmental; only after re-reading "True Life in God"
slowly and prayerfully … have I realized how much I needed to
repent of my bitter attitude … and to start to love God as he
needs to be loved (with His love). I cannot discount the
calmness and the peace that I am experiencing … My life is
gravitating towards God and His Design for His Creation.
After I read "True Life in God", I felt I spoke to God
directly and felt united with the Light of God. And there was
this wish for conversion inside of me.
TLIG messages have been sanctifying for me and for many of my
friends. The greatest revelation has been the tenderness of our
Heavenly Father and now my prayers and my approach to Him are
quite different, with much more confidence and love, but also
with respect, as He teaches us through our dear Vassula. The
Holy Trinity is more comprehensive now and my devotion to the
Three Divine Persons is much greater. Vassula's meekness is
something that all of us should learn and practice.
When reading the books, it confirmed what the Spirit had let
me perceive and understand about the prophet Daniel, about the
Apostasy, and so on. I have been reading the books since 1994
and when reading those books have received healing in body, mind
I grew up in the Roman Catholic faith and continue to
participate in the Orthodox Church traditions on many occasions
during the course of the year. The effects/affects of these "True
Life in God" messages are by far...so many, that if would take a
book for me to write! What I've gained personally, is my
re-found intimacy I had with Jesus when I was a little girl and
now, as this intimacy matures with time given to study my Bible,
learn from the "True Life in God" messages and read the writings
of the saints in both Eastern and Western Catholic Churches; my
child-like faith has been 'Fortressed' because of Jesus and
Mary's great love for me - their child.
I was introduced to Vassula and the TLIG message by my
brother who was just converted (now studying to be a priest)
back in around 1992. From the very first page to [the end] I
have been drawn into God's Holy Hymn. As with Vassula I have
been suckled like a nursling on the words of love in TLIG. What
a magnificent work! The way God takes one by the hand and slowly
yet steadily leads them to the center of His being is
breathtaking. Oh how I've intimately grown to love God, yes
thrice holy, and so tangible and intangible all at the same
time. I am so grateful to have been chosen to experience God
through his messenger Vassula.
My wife and me struggle always on having our daily rosary.
Then one day our friend, Joan Daengsvang, suggested that since
she live near our place to join us to pray the rosary together.
She then one day came to our place and suggested praying the
rosary using the "True Life in God" prayer format. Now not only
the three of us are praying the rosary together but also some of
our friends who live near by join us to pray the rosary together
and listen and share God's word and His messages. In less than
two months our group increases up to 8 regular members that
prays the rosary every Friday of the week. Most especially we
always have and active participation of sharing God's word
through our insight and experiences. Furthermore, my wife and
myself including our 6 years old son pray the rosary together
daily and regularly.
"True Life in God" has made Jesus alive in my life as a
faithful friend and companion. He shows his love in a most
irresistible way that I can't help but love him back even if I
now realize how unworthy I am.
We read many books and watched several videos about Marian
apparitions around the world. But it wasn't until we started
reading TLIG when we truly learned about God's personal and
infinite love for us. Reading and contemplating TLIG was one of
God's graces that changed our lives forever. Every day we try to
remember that the God who loves us ``to folly'' is near us, that
He wants to be present in our daily lives, that He calls us to
live our life as He wants, that He sends on us all graces after
graces. As a result of reading TLIG we have learned to pray not
only the ``standard'' daily prayers but also to talk to the
Three Persons of God during the day, to ask him to bless what we
do and to be always with us.
Before I knew these messages, I only went to church at
funerals and marriages. Praying, I only did now and then. After
I read an article in a Dutch newspaper, I bought the books about
"True Life in God". Due to this I started to go to church more
often. I also prayed more than before. Now, since a year I go to
church every week. I pray every day as much as possible. Through
these messages I learned to know God as a friend, who's always
ready for me. Somebody, whom I can talk, laughs and cries with.
I got to know Him as a real person, somebody who's really close
to me. When I used to read the Bible, I thought it was history
only, but now I believe he's really there. Now I want to pass
the messages on to other people too."
After I read "True Life in God" book, I found the light
of certainty, as follows: - That The Holy Trinity is One. -
Jesus has revealed Himself with so many Names for us to be
intimate with in this modern world. - That Every human is
personally called to be holy, irrespective of weakness,
helplessness, and sin. - That Jesus Christ is the Church and the
Head of the Church.
I was really surprised after I read "True Life in God".
I found that God is beautiful, God is love. And I could feel
that God spoke to me directly. God's Love is very deep. Without
God I am nothing, but in God, I can do things according to God's
will not have done before.
Reading the messages of "True Life in God" my life and
conversion changed most profoundly. If I may add that I fell in
love with the Catholic Church and all it represented to the
Christian world. My faith has deepened to levels I did not
believe was possible. Especially my love for the Blessed Trinity
and Our Lady.
When I first heard of Vassula, I was very skeptical. A friend
loaned me a tape of one of her talks. It took me a while before
I watched it. But, when I did, I could hear God speaking to me.
At that point, I found the order form for the books and ordered
the first. When I first began reading the book, I felt that it
was too personal and questioned if this could be from God. But,
after continuing in the reading, I could feel and hear God
speaking and knew it was He speaking to us. I continue to hear
God reaching out to us in these messages.
I came to know of Vassula through a newsletter in the local
daily before her last visit to Goa on 25.1.98. I attended her
meeting and subsequently read TLIG Vol. I & II Books. Through
these messages, I came to know a loving and living God, who
cares and loves me so very much. One day I got a lovely
fragrance smell, even though there were no flower-bearing trees
in the vicinity of my house. I was a Sunday church goer, with
once-a-year confession and daily Mass on special occasions. As a
teenager, I was a very active parishioner. Since reading TLIG
messages I am a daily Mass participant, frequently visit the
Most Blessed Sacrament and go for confession once a month. Since
my marriage in 1991, we never prayed the Rosary, but thanks be
to God, it is our daily salute to our loving Mother. My husband
too through TLIG messages rediscovered a living God.
I grew up Mormon but rebelled at age 12 turning to drugs and
alcohol for the next 24 years. I became sober in 1993 by the
Grace of God in Whom I still did not believe. In January 1997 I
was reading an events magazine. I read an article entitled "When
God Talks Vassula Listens." Two weeks later I got the article
out and with incredible fire in my soul began my search for the
messages and the love that was leading me. With the help of
others, the reading of the messages and the understanding of my
wife who also took up the messages we were drawn to the Catholic
Church. We were baptized, Confirmed and received our First
Communion at Easter Vigil March 1998. On February 13, 1999 my
wife, Rolene, and I celebrated the Sacrament of Matrimony. We
have been blessed by our Triune God and are learning to lower
our heads to see His face and our voices to hear His call. We
are His Children.
In the messages from Jesus to Vassula, Jesus gives us many
beautiful messages, encouragement and teaching. The main benefit
for me was to learn that we could be on a " we-us" relationship
with Jesus, He made us His friend not only our God and Saviour,
Jesus accepted us as His friend. Also I was able to learn of and
understand Jesus great love for His children, because He was
talking as a friend, a friend full of loving kindness. The books
enable us to know more and understand better Jesus' nature, and
thus we can feel more comfortable with Him and be closer to Him.
I find it difficult to put into words the effect that "True
Life in God" has had in my life... Words cannot describe how
wonderful, how incredible, how fantastic it is to have an
intimate relationship with God. 'True life in God' not only
describes it to me in an incredible way, but the holy spirit
teaches me through the messages how to live my life as a
I have found true Peace; Love reading TLIG; and have shared
it with others and know that it has touched their hearts as
well. My sister tried to get me to read one of those books. ...
then I got arrested ... the wheels of justice turns real slow in
TX. She finally got you to send me Volume 1. At first I was
weary-until I decided to really sit down and read it. I've
always believed in the Spirit of God, but had a problem praying
to Jesus (a man). But after I started reading I felt the love
and the pain Jesus is going thru. He talks with such feeling
that it made me love him. And feel guilty for not trusting and
loving him earlier..... After I read the books I let other guys
read them, and you could actually see the change in a person
that really opens up their heart and mind to God-Lord Jesus and
his sweet Mother Mary. May the Lord Jesus bless the World that
we all live in and have mercy on those whose ear and eyes are
