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 Architect?s Office.

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 year I passed up my college class, preferring to go to Holy Mass that day and receive Holy Communion. I always had in mind to receive the "so tasteful wine" that I always thought was a thousand times more delicious than the regular wine we have at home, certainly because it's Jesus.

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 truly Jesus.

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.
