Jesus' Favors Reinforce My Faith
My name is Alcenir
Parise, and I am thirty-four years old. I'm from Brazil,
but for the past five years I have been living in
Palatine, Illinois, in the U.S.A. as a student of
Architectural Technology, and I have a job in an
My life has totally
changed after reading the TLIG messages. I am
progressing now through Volume Five. I often feel Jesus?
presence every day and in every activity that I'm doing,
remembering His "We, us." I invite Him to be with me and
do my tasks together with Him. Now I ask Him to bless my
food when I'm going to eat.
This all happened after
reading the Messages, since before reading them, I used
to imagine God far away from me and from the world and
being in Heaven only. Now I pray the three prayers from
the beginning of the book every day. Sometimes I feel so
much happiness and love that I cry; I feel God at my
side. It's a marvelous feeling. I feel sorry for people
who don't believe Him and I pray for them.
I had an important thing
happen to me that I call a miracle:
On Holy Thursday last

Holy Mass that day and receive Holy Communion. I always
had in mind to receive the "so tasteful wine" that I

the regular wine we have at home, certainly because it's
To my surprise, I simply
drank Blood. Yes, Blood; the strong taste and smell of
that Blood lasted for about an hour and made me think
that I was offending God for not getting the delicious
taste I usually expect.
It was only when I got
home that I realized that what happened was a blessing
of God to reinforce my faith. God showed Himself to me
through the Eucharist, proving that it's His Body and
Blood in the Consecrated Host and Wine. It's not
symbolic, as many people mistakenly believe. Yes, It's
Now I go to Holy Mass not
only on Sundays but also during the week when it's
possible, and I receive the Body and Blood of Jesus
after confessing my sins. I'm so glad that this
miraculous favor happened to me, and I thank Jesus for
this blessing. I am ready now to be a living testimony
of the favors of Jesus.
