My Greatest Miracle in the Miracle of CommunionFire
It was 2014 during a CommunionFire encounter with Jesus whil,e having Communion with my wife Camille in our home. Dining with the Lord upon the bread He calls His flesh, therefore so do I, I saw Jesus in a n octagonal library room that for some reason made me think is this what the rooms in the Library of Congress look like? It was austere and made of 8 walls and a doorway, probably a study room for privacy from the public. Perhaps 10-12 feet high and at 10oclock from where I saw the Lord, the door was open inviting sunlight from another entry/exit door to the outdoors. The light cascaded down the steps probably because the sun was just where it needed to be.
As I took drink of the wine that had become His precious blood, again through the miracle He invites us all to participate in, I felt the fire of His passion transfusing into my bloodstream to quicken me to become the righteousness of God in Christ. He had become sin for me that I might become a partaker of His divine nature.
As I waited for a moment I saw coming from the staircase a scroll surfing on the rays of light from the sunbeam. As it entered the room above our heads it unfurled and out fell the person of a young woman. She stood next to her Son Jesus and Jesus introduced me to His Mother, the Holy Virgin Mary!
About 5 Months later the same vision repeated itself as Camille and I share the Table of the Lord together. It was early morning and this time from the scroll came Saint Peter, Saint Ephraim of Syria, Holy Mother Mary and Saint Joseph. As they stood with Jesus across from me, Mary spoke to me directly for the very first time. She looked at me and with a gentle smile in a soft and caring voice said, "Bob, be bold." That was it and I felt almosted translated into a new dimmension of faith. About 8 months later I began to go on an evening prayer walk to pray the Rosary. That was almost 3 years ago now on June 20th 2015 and I still take my evening prayer walks praying the Rosary every night. I have to say of a truth, I now know my Savior more personally and intimately because I have met His Mother who now has become my Mother in Christ and my Queen of heaven who is preparing the Bride for her Son.
Divine Mercy = CommunionFire!?
The Eucharistic Apostles of Divine Mercy and Cenacle (another name for "The Upper Room") is what they call "Divine Mercy Cenacle of (Your Town) in our vernacular 'Home Groups' just like our CommunionFire "Gatherings"!
Saint Faustina (Canonized by St. John Paul II on April 30th, 2000) spent her life in the 20th Century writing a diary about her encounters with Jesus by revelation (vision and hearing in the Spirit see 2 Corinthians 4:18) We also have been journaling these encounters individually and as a group for the past 3 years. this week we will finish our 16th Journal (Diary). When you read St. Faustina's diary - it sounds very much like our CommunionFire Journals. It is because in both cases it is the same Jesus revealing, speaking and sharing with us in Communion!
This is such refreshing news and so exciting for those of us sharing the Lord's CommunionFire (or Divine Mercy).
The Cenacle leadership also said, "You know, many Roman Catholics are unaware of "The Divine Mercy" (or the CommunionFire) of the Eucharist or Communion. "This is a Last Days Movement of Jesus among His people." said Saint Faustina prophetically. She also said we need to get in on His mercy now because the Day of the Lord is at hand! We agree. We are now realizing that CommunionFire is where you refuel every day. By coming to the Table of the Lord, the Holy Spirit trims the lamplight of your heart and then pours in the oil of revelation! Then your cup overflows! By tomorrow, we come back to the Table to feast upon the Lord and drink in His presence to refuel and reignite the lamplight.
Is the lamplight of your heart burning or running out of fuel? Remedy: Believe in your heart and receive with your hands as you open the door of your mouth to feed on the Blessed Bread of His Flesh and the Blessed Cup and Blessed Wine of His Blood.
To top it all off you might call 2016 "The Year of Communion Fire!" Why? Because Pope Francis declared 2016 The Jubilee Year of Divine Mercy! These " Communion/Eucharistic-based Parousias are pulling back the veils of this life to reveal glimpses of the King and Kingdom. Could these be like the heavenly visitations like those that preceded the Lord's first coming?

The Message and Devotion to Divine Mercy"The Message of the Divine Mercy that Sr. Faustina received from the Lord was not only directed toward her personal growth in faith but also toward the good of the people. With the command of our Lord to paint an image according to the pattern that Sr. Faustina had seen, came also a request to have this image venerated, first in the Sisters' chapel, and then throughout the world. The same is true with the revelations of the Chaplet. The Lord requested that this Chaplet be said not only by Sr. Faustina, but by others: "Encourage souls to say the Chaplet that I have given you.""
St. Faustina's Diary, which Jesus Christ ordered her to keep during the last four years of her life, is a kind of journal in which the author recorded current or retrospective events related primarily to the “encounters” of her soul with God.
