INTRODUCTIONVassula Rydén, is Greek, born in Egypt and She belongs to the Greek Orthodox Church. Her husband'sprofessional obligations meant that she had to live most of her life in third world countries. She couldnever have imagined that God would unexpectedly reveal Himself to her in 1985, while she was livingwith her family in Bangladesh. This was the beginning of a mystical communication, which continues tothis very day. It is God that dictates, inspires and reveals to her His words of Wisdom to pass them on toHis people so that they know His Will.The grace to receive God’s word in such a way is called Prophecy. God called Vassula even though shehad never received any catechetical instruction or theological formation and taught her everything; asHe said once to her: ‘I have chosen you as a blank canvas to fill it up only with My Work which I willname: ‘True Life in God.’ The ‘True Life in God’ divine messages are an urgent call to make peace withGod and amend our lives through repentance. They are a call to reconciliation, love and unity.“Be like a loud book, a book written by the Most High,” God told Vassula in the beginning. He foretoldher back in 1986 that His message with His help, will go around the world and so it did. Since 1988Vassula has been invited to speak in more than 76 countries and has given over 1000 presentations. Inall of this apostolic work, Vassula receives no personal royalties, fees, or benefits for her efforts. So far,the books have been translated by volunteers into more than 42 languages.Several renowned theologians and priests, with great enthusiasm have studied the messages andconsider them not only to be in harmony with the Scriptures and the Tradition of the Church but alsosaid that they have given them a better insight of the Scriptures and of the essence of God. They haveconfirmed their authenticity and divine origin by writing books and analyzing the unique case of Vassula.Through all these years, Our Lord has tried and is still trying to awaken a true understanding in all of usby repeatedly giving us reminders: recalling what was said in the past by the Holy Prophets and His ownCommandments; God will not allow us forever to offend His Holy Name and so, repeatedly He has beenwarning us that the world, living without Him, is self‐destroying itself in its apostasy and provoking HisHoly Justice to fall on them. Prophecies such as the destruction of the Twin Towers, the Tsunami of2004, the fall of communism in Russia and other prophecies, were foretold to Vassula and have all cometrue. If the world, will not repent and the churches will continue to be deaf to His callings forreconciliation and unity, a unity in diversity, a great chastisement of fire will be sent to the world.“Those who have ears let them hear, those who do not want to hear let them not hear”, this is whatGod said to Vassula to tell this generation and to all the Churches.In Scriptures it is written that faith without good works is quite dead. After experiencing our Lady in avision, Vassula was asked by our Holy Mother to reach out to the needy and feed the poor as well, forspiritual food was not enough. Since then, many houses called Beth Miriam (house of Mary) started tofunction to feed the poor. Those houses are progressing to have schooling as well for the poor children.There are now many worldwide.
Vassula has painted canvases of Jesus and Mary and we have made photographs of these paintings, ofwhich are at the book tables. The proceeds of the selling of the paintings will be allocated to the TLIGmissions. In this too, Vassula does not receive any monies for herself.(Show the portrait to the audience) This is a photo of her last paintingVassula says: This latest portrait represents Jesus the way the world has rendered Him. The name of thispainting is “Ultimate Humility.” And Jesus says in the messages:”WHAT COULD I HAVE DONE MORE FORYOU, THAT I HAVE NOT DONE?”And now it is with great Honour to present to you Ms. Vassula Ryden
