I went to Franciscan University of Steubenville for my master’s degree in Theology and Christian Ministry. I graduated in 2001 with an “A” average. I have held several jobs in and for the Church in the last three decades, including at one archdiocese and two dioceses, a religious order, and one of the largest apostolates in the Church. During this same time, I have focused my attention on Catholic private revelation. It profoundly helped me to convert from cafeteria Catholicism in 1988, develop a strong prayer life, and know what is going on behind the scenes in the world. With a few holes, I have gone to daily Mass, prayed the Rosary daily, and had a priest as a spiritual advisor for the last 35 years. (I withhold my name for my career, personal safety, etc.)
I believe Catholic prophecy is currently the strongest, clearest, and most effective way heaven is speaking to mankind. Thus, private revelation is thoroughly attacked by the devil through prelates, priests, professors, pundits, etc. As the respected Pharisee, Gamaliel, said in the Book of Acts: “Men of Israel, take care what you do with these men […] let them alone; for if this plan or this undertaking is of men, it will fail; but if it is of God, you will not be able to overthrow them. You might even be found opposing God!” (5:35-39)
Such is the case with current and as-yet unapproved private revelation. The Church's position regarding Catholic prophets is perfectly balanced; it is "open, but cautious." One must pray for discernment and be very prudent, to be sure (literally, only one in a hundred reports of private revelation is authentic), but the opposition to private revelation is out of bounds at this point. As St. Paul teaches: “Do not quench the Spirit, do not despise prophesying, but test everything; hold fast what is good” (1 Thessalonians 5:19-21).
For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, says the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts. “For as the rain and the snow come down from heaven, and return not thither but water the earth, making it bring forth and sprout, giving seed to the sower and bread to the eater, so shall my word be that goes forth from my mouth; it shall not return to me empty, but it shall accomplish that which I purpose, and prosper in the thing for which I sent it (Isaiah 55:8-11).
I am confident and at peace regarding the limited number of private revelations on this website, which is limited to some current or as-yet unapproved private revelations. (These are the most relevant for today, are the most attacked, and do not receive the attention they deserve.) As Fr. Rene Laurentin, Mariologist and "Prelate of His Holiness" to Pope Benedict XVI said: "In today’s climate, not even the apparitions at Lourdes would be approved by the Church.” But this is not the mind of the Church; Pope St. John XXIII taught this: "We exhort you to listen with simplicity of heart and honesty of mind to the salutary warnings of the Mother of God..." (February 18, 1959, Closing of the Marian Year). As Scripture says:
Therefore I send you prophets and wise men and scribes, some of whom you will kill and crucify, and some you will scourge in your synagogues and persecute from town to town, that upon you may come all the righteous blood shed on earth, from the blood of innocent Abel to the blood of Zechariah the son of Barachiah, whom you murdered between the sanctuary and the altar. Truly, I say to you, all this will come upon this generation. 'O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, killing the prophets and stoning those who are sent to you! How often would I have gathered your children together as a hen gathers her brood under her wings, and you would not!' (Matthew 23:34-37; cf. Luke 13:34)
These words of Jesus come to mind: "Then he said to them: O foolish, and slow of heart to believe in all things which the prophets have spoken." (Lk. 24:25) That saying is applicable to the excessively prudent of today. "The golden mean" is the virtue between two extremes; hence the Vatican's position: "open, but cautious." We are not to be too open or too cautious.
I highly recommend buying the books of a particular private revelation since Catholic prophecy websites like this one will undoubtedly be taken off the Internet in the near future.
There are a number of messengers on this website (which is not intended to be exhaustive) so visitors can choose what they feel called to follow. However, I strongly recommend not “chasing after visionaries” – meaning: do not follow much private revelation, seeking knowledge rather than living out the messages. I hope and pray people do not visit my site daily. It is best to follow just one or maybe two private revelations and live the messages rather than just read them, especially in a vain attempt to know for certain the future. You will do God and Mary more honor by living one or two to the hilt rather than living none and knowing much. For example, Our Lady of Medjugorje asks that we pray three hours a day and fast two days a week, so it is obvious that each private revelation on its own is sufficient to lead you to holiness. All Catholic private revelation can be summed up as a call to prayer, penance, and conversion...
I very strongly recommend staying away from YouTube channels that feature current private revelation. Many of these videos are from the dark side, and include dates of events, which heaven practically NEVER does, and tacky sensationalism like a tabloid. Artificial intelligence seems to be obviously employed. The messages' wording is therefore often made up! This garbage is from the devil. Also, the music and constant images that take the focus off the message, even if it is an authentic outlet. Therefore, there is only one prudent thing to do. Stay off YouTube regarding private revelation.
Many thanks to the donors who have made this apostolate possible. If you can help us spread this apostolate in any way, please click on "Donate" in the menu at the top of this page. It is essential that heaven's urgent messages reach as many people as possible!
PrivateRevelation.org was launched on March 25, 2022, the Solemnity of the Annunciation. This apostolate is consecrated totally to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. It is a free service and is updated daily with new private revelation – never mixing messages or presenting sensationally, irresponsibly, or unclearly. I simply let heaven speak for itself, without unnecessary human commentary or images. The words of God and Mary are far better than those of any human commentator! I use only official translations whenever possible, unlike some of my competitors. The only exception is if there is not an official English translation. In that case, I have the message translated by a translator who will translate it literally -- that is, word-for-word -- to maintain accuracy.
Please Like and Follow Private Revelation on Facebook and spread authentic private revelation any way you can, for, as St. Paul tells us, “the time is short” (1 Corinthians 7:29). We are, without a doubt, living in the end times; we are living through the events in the Book of Revelation...
Nine times in Scripture, Jesus says: “He who has ears, let him hear.” This website is the most trustworthy source for current Catholic private revelation.
