I quite often stand out in my garden and always look for Orion, it has always had a pull on me. I never knew why. Now, maybe, and I stress the maybe, I know.

I need to look into her writings more to form a fair opinion.

As for the links given by ES. I urge you to look into them. Valtora reached me like no one else has. Her writings are beautiful and inspired.
Orion is so easily recognized by all - people can identify the systems of three stars in a row, and of course it is seen world over because it lies close to the celestial equator.

Yup :)

I love the stars, always have. They hold magic for me.

I keep meaning to get a star map and learn the constellations, only being able to pick out Orion, Ursa Major and Ursa Minor.

Sh... you'd have to have so many years of reading her to appreciate all these writings entail ... here's a little of a synopsis of what she wrote:

Poem of the Man-God contains 647 visions of the life of Our Lord
and Our Lady
in its 4,196 pages – and many experts have verified that it does not contain any
significant errors, mix-ups, or mistakes, nor is a single person, place, or thing out of place, even
though it includes 500+ personalities, 350+ named locations, 950 quotations and references to
40 Old Testament books in Jesus’ speeches,
a newly proposed chronological arrangement and
dating system of the Gospels, and a vast amount of geographical, climatic, agricultural,
historical, astronomical, and cartographical information, which authorities in these fields have
verified the accuracy of with appropriate astonishment.

6. Her revelations also have unprecedented detail,

IMO, to read it is to believe it. Her astounding accuracy is dwarfed only be His desire for us to read about His mortal life to embolden, strengthen our faith. I knew you'd take some time to inspect and I'm very glad you have.

EssentialSacrifice,

It's interesting what happens to people who cherish the good and let the bad go. They grow spiritually and are led to Christ as their friend.

God leaves good things everywhere in abundance, all people need to do is feed their hunger. "Blessed are they that hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled."

This is the very definition of forgiveness. IMO, when your life becomes more about everyone else you have lead yourself to Christ as His friend.

I learnt about forgiveness over the last few days, It`s not easy, in fact, it is so far the hardest lesson I`ve had to learn but the rewards are great.

Did you have a spat with Mr Storyteller? And it was your fault, of course? God uses these events to straighten us out.

If they had a social gospel in the days of the prodigal son, somebody would have given him a bed and a sandwich and he never would have gone home.

Noooooooo! I wouldn't dream of arguing with Mr Storyteller. y:^o

It was actually about the death cult thread.
As much as it breaks my heart I am coming to realise it isn't about me and how I feel, it's about others.
I would forgive my daughter absolutely anything because I love her, the same should apply to others too.
