If nobody believed in superstition it would be unable to hurt anyone
- False Visionary and False Prophetess of Achill, Mayo, Ireland
Christina Gallagher claims to have been getting revelations from the Blessed Virgin Mary and Jesus and other Catholic religious entities. Through these revelations, a House of Prayer was set up in Achill in a former convent.
Christina Gallagher got a fortune in donations from those
who believed in her. She said she would put all the donations to spiritual and
religious purposes. She did not. Most of the money went on keeping up her lavish
and superstar lifestyle. She did very well. She was able to buy a mansion to
live in, in posh Malahide in Dublin.
The revelations in the media about what she was up to
upset the faith of many Catholics. Some turned against religion altogether. But
it could be argued, "Christina knows the world is going to end soon. She
predicted great disasters including the Third World War. Why not have a lavish
house then? Didn't the apostle Paul say one time that it was foolish to think
about marrying for the world would be coming to an end? The usual rules wouldn't
apply in such circumstances."
This argument shows that religion is dangerous for there
is always a way through religion to justify evil.
She claims that the Virgin told her she was appearing in
Medjugorje. So in effect, she is claiming to be a visionary like the visionaries
of Medjugorje. Then why doesn't she go there? Why is it not an option for her to
join the Medjugorje visionaries for an apparition? Why does the Medjugore
apparition not mention the House of Prayer or Christina's doctrine that it is
necessary to visit a House of Prayer and use the Matrix Medal to be saved in the
Her website attempts to refute criticisms of her in the
Sunday World newspapers and Jim Gallagher's book, Immaculate Deception. But it
settles for simply denying the allegations against her. It doesn't bother with
Why does her website not show documents and receipts of
hers that prove that Jim Gallagher is wrong to claim that when she claimed to be
ill and suffering for sinners she was actually drinking with a boyfriend and
having a great time?
Why is her Virgin Mary showing such a different
personality and seem to have a different vocabulary from the Virgin Mary as
reported by the Medjugorje visionaries?
Compare they way they talk.
MESSAGE TO CHRISTINA GALLAGHER- JULY 25, 2002 Message of
Our Lady for the 25th July 2002
My children, I am with you today in a very special way. I
do know you will not comprehend the greatness of this day. I embrace your every
and cross. I am the Mother of God, your Mother and Queen. How so many of you have mocked me. I beg you to take to heart all I say to you. Open your hearts to me. Pray, pray for the Holy Father.
You will know great upheaval in the world; the
restlessness in the world will increase each day through the work of the evil
one. You will be put to the test to choose between the evil one and God. Storms
will affect many in the world. Storms such as the world has not seen. Evil will
increase, as my children's desires will be influenced by the evil one seducing
them into the darkness of his presence for destruction. Do not blame the evil
one for what is your own weakness and your own desires. I invite you here today
to warn you of the many, many strange things, which are to befall the world. You
just be vigilant in prayer. I will be close to each one of you who has responded
to my invitation. I will always be close to your hearts. You must permit me to
safe guard you with God's many graces in your response of open heart. In that
way you will be able to conquer, with me and stay in the light of God.
How I desired that my plan for Ireland would be
fulfilled, all My children can see how My Son Jesus was disowned, forsaken and
shamed by those who serve Him.
I have drawn many to my House to be set free of sin only
to be denied, God's gifts of His sacraments.
Coming to the world are many calamities to purify the
stench of sin and evil.
Soon, soon you too will be called upon to choose God in
truth or the temptation and seduction of the evil one. Pray, pray my children, I
am with you, My children who are living My message, I am doing battle in the
world by means of my unity in the victory of my Son Jesus.
My church is being purified but only in its early stages.
The cries of deception reach heaven, my Son Jesus - His Heart weeps with sorrow
at the enormity of what is still to befall the world.
I invite each one of you here today to abandon yourself
to God and through My intercession, there you will find safety in My love, but
you must decide for God and recognise that I am your Mother and I love you all.
I desire you help me through prayer and surrender. I desire you pray for and
look after my servant Christina. You must be her earthly friend, not her enemy.
Those of you, who desert her on account of the truth, she brings you as the
messenger of God, will experience the justice of God for your lack of compassion
for the truth. It is time for you to stop and realise the truth. It is only
truth that will set you free before God. I have told my servant Christina of the
many world events. Pray that she will not be overcome with the enormous
responsibility of it.
My plan for my house of prayer is far from complete. So few have helped. Those who have heard the truth of my message and who have received through my Heart but have denied My call for the plan of God to be fulfilled will have to endure God's justice. He has shown you a great mercy: you have shown Him contempt. My children, there will be many signs here at my house to prove to the world that it is I your Immaculate Mother who is calling you. The signs will be great. The great sign will last for three days and three nights for all to see.
I bless you, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
COMPARE THIS TO THE MEDJUGORJE MESSAGE GIVEN THE SAME DAY
Message of July 25, 2002 "Dear children! Today I rejoice
with your patron saint and call you to be open to God’s will, so that in you and
through you, faith may grow in the people you meet in your everyday life. Little
children, pray until prayer becomes joy for you. Ask your holy protectors to
help you grow in love towards God. Thank you for having responded to my call."
Whether Catholics care to admit it or not, the evidence that Christina Gallagher is experiencing the supernatural is far better than the evidence that Mary appeared at La Salette, Lourdes, Medjugorje and even Fatima. She is a fake yes. But she is proof that even proof for the supernatural is not all its cracked up to be.
A doctor verified some alleged miracles but not in any
official capacity and gave it as his personal opinion. And Christina
supposedly went into an impossible position one time during a vision. This could
have been trickery. She seems to have only done it once and that was for the
video camera. She could have been practicing.
Even Medjugorje never got evidence that good. The good
fruits and the joy at Medjugorje and the healings (not necessarily miraculous -
feeling good can do a lot for your health) and the spinning suns are nothing
unique. Fraudulent money-mad TV Evangelists in the states are popular for
similar reasons. When people give loads of money to the evangelists, does that
not prove that they are infinitely impressed by them and their alleged powers?
Does their approval carry more weight than the pilgrim's approval of the
Medjugorje visionaries who do not money-spin in such a blatant way as the
Evangelists do? The Evangelists are followed by those who put their money where
their mouth is. Gallagher's claims and her House of Prayer have had effects
similar to those of Medugorje.
She was raking in the cash before she offered any proof
or evidence of authenticity. What does that tell you?
Michael Neary, Archbishop of Tuam, held a 1996 Commission
which investigated the supernatural claims made by Gallagher. The following year
he declared, “I find myself obliged to state that no evidence has been presented
which might prove beyond reasonable doubt the occurrence of supernatural
phenomena of whatever kind in this situation. The House of Prayer has no Church
approval and the work does not enjoy the confidence of the diocesan authorities.
