Our Statement is from the
Many People who Freely Attend the House of Prayer Achill
As directors of the House of Prayer and as representatives of the many people who freely choose to attend the House of Prayer we find it very strange that Jim Gallagher and Dialogue Ireland persist not only in stalking Mrs. Gallagher but in displaying such an obsessive and hate-filled manner as they do so.
Why do they continue to lash Mrs.Gallagher when it is we, the directors and representatives of the people who responded on the internet to their false allegations? We provide what we provide because we respect Mrs. Gallagher for what we have witnessed- we have direct experience of the truth and the facts of which we speak. What we do with our own money is our choice and ours alone; just as it is Jim Gallagher's business what he may choose to do with his.
Some of us were present at the House of Prayer, for example, when a young horse-trainer from Hartlepool was healed on the spot , coming to life before our eyes! His progressive and irreversible paralysis disappeared instantaneously and the inoperable injuries were instantly healed. His medical consultants fully verified his cure but declared there was no scientific explanation for it.
More recently, we were present at the House of Prayer when a young Dublin man was instantly healed there of drug addiction and returned to the daily practice of his faith. In his moving testimony he described how two of his brothers had actually died through such drug abuse.
Jim Gallagher's hatred for Christina rises to the extreme and reckless pitch of endangering her life by depicting her head within a rifle-sight and placing a weapon in the caption. If he were only to apply a similar energy to ascertaining the truth and conveying the extraordinary good that is evident in the fruitfulness of the work entrusted to her…..! Over 700 such testimonies can be read in the files at the House of Prayer.
We, whom Mr. Gallagher condescends to class as "gullible" -though far from gullible we are- know what we have directly witnessed. Surely it is he who is the gullible one, as he deliberately blinds himself to the professional evidence available concerning the fruits of the House of Prayer and insists on parroting the same stale lies to the point of obsession?
We have been with Mrs.Gallagher when we witnessed nasty tactics directed towards her house in Malahide - not just stalking but stalking marked with a depth of obsessive behaviour. We cannot but ask is there any place where Mrs. Gallagher can be afforded justice in the face of relentless incitement to hatred by Jim Gallagher, Dialogue Ireland and tv3?
Mrs. Gallagher has only ever asked people to pray the Rosary daily and fast (on tea and bread) one day a week of their choice (something, incidentally, which the Holy Father,Pope Francis recently also invited everyone in the Church to do in union with him for the situation in Syria). Yet what appears in Jim Gallagher's article and on tv3 is a total deceit -an absurd inference that Mrs. Gallagher could be thereby responsible for anyone 'losing their body weight' or 'praying a hundred Rosaries per day'. This is so preposterous as not to merit comment. When Mrs. Gallagher is present at the House of Prayer,she merely prays the Rosary and does not meet people privately, personally or otherwise. The Rosary she always prays slowly so that people know what they are saying and therefore that they pray it not for any obsessive or compulsive reason.
The prayers we pray at the House of Prayer are the regular, universally used prayers of our Catholic Church known and recognised as such by any practising Catholic. One can only wonder, then, why Jim Gallagher, Dialogue Ireland and tv3 go on deceiving people by their mindless repetition of the phrase 'cult-like behaviour' in relation to Our Lady Queen of Peace House of Prayer.
It highlights the reckless urge to destroy Mrs.Gallagher and underlines yet again the question, what could make a person consistently deny and distort truth, repeat falsities and become obsessed with hatred in this pursuit?
We cannot but wonder in light of truth who, in fact, it is that is suffering and acting irrationally in all of this!
We would like you to understand (this time) that it is not Mrs. Gallagher who is posting this statement on the website but we, the directors of the House of Prayer and representatives of the people who come to pray the prayers of the Catholic Church.
The Latest Attack on Christina Gallagher by the Sunday World
Jim Gallagher, the stalker, who put Christina’s life in danger already by publishing an image of a rifle-sight on her head with the provocative pun and revealing motive in the caption as much as to say “View to... ” has resumed his stalking tactics to terrorise once again and put her life in grave danger.
On Sunday November 3rd the Sunday World resumed their scurrilous and defamatory attacks on Christina Gallagher with their so-called ‘exclusive’. Once again they seem intent on incitement to contempt and hatred towards Mrs Gallagher.
As has been the case over the past seven years, this latest article is a tissue of misleading information and lies.
Mrs Gallagher owns only one house. It is because she was forced by this kind of media harassment that she had to leave her previous residences. She was first driven from her house at Newport (which she had purchased with the royalties from her own books and tapes with her personal money.) A man from the US hired a film crew from the UK and broke into her private property to film. When confronted by the Gardai this crew lied saying they had sent their film on ahead to an address in Dublin which was a bogus address discovered by the Guards. Instead the tape is believed to have been taken back to the US by those involved.
As a result of this outrageous invasion of privacy, we, the people, felt it necessary to put in place a protection for her. We did this freely and knowingly and we legally declared so in writing. This house acquired by her in Malahide suffered similar invasions of privacy through the relentless Sunday World campaign having a photographer fly over the house as related by Jim Gallagher himself and then printing a full page picture of the property. This not only brought a further procession of tantalising stalkers to the house but also rendered Mrs Gallagher’s life and safety at great risk by suggesting falsely that she had antiques and possibly cash in the house. She has neither and, in fact, hates antiques. The campaign of hatred has been ruthless in turning Mrs Gallagher into a ready target for any gullible reader or hearer of this despicable material.
Incitement to Hatred. Endangerment of Life
The proof of this was clearly evidenced by the arrival at the House of Prayer of individuals - some of them in a disturbed state - who kicked in a panel of the door during a night vigil shouting dangerous threats, uttering obscenities against Mrs Gallagher and referring to the Sunday World and TV3.
At this point she found it necessary to write to the Garda Commissioner, providing full details.
Lies even appeared in some of these articles wrongly asserting that Mrs Gallagher had requested cash for the houses of prayer in the US to be sent to her personally. This is a total falsehood. Those houses are vested in trusts in the US and have no benefit for Mrs Gallagher or anyone else and have no financial connection with Ireland.
When her protection in Malahide was destroyed by the Sunday World we, the people, decided to act.
Her intention had always been to give that house in Malahide to the House of Prayer after her death but because of the present needs of the House of Prayer in outstanding bills and maintaining its upkeep, Christina decided to sell the Malahide house now, to help the House of Prayer right away.
Sunday World endangers Mrs Gallagher's life by depicting her within the crosshairs of a rifle-sight and with such a headline
We, the people, horrified that such an outrage could be permitted as to depict her within a rifle-sight and thus endanger her life and also seeing for ourselves the entire wrongdoings and the campaign of falsity, we then took the initiative to put together the means to obtain a property of her choice in order to remove her from the increasing danger and give her a little peace of mind. Christina then went to a country area in the UK at the back of a little village and procured a house with the finances thus provided. But alas not for long. Her stalker, Mr Gallagher reappeared, and caused yet again danger to her life and safety by spreading his poison in the neighbourhood of that house, blackening her character.
Mrs Gallagher sold the house in the UK and returned to Malahide to be further mocked and endure the ongoing campaign. The money from the sale of the house in the UK was able to be used for the house that is most recently attacked and on November 3rd, placed on the headlines. Mrs Gallagher is not therefore the owner of “a portfolio of houses“ in Ireland or the USA nor has the ownership of her family home ever come into question because Christina has neither been separated nor divorced from her husband. This is another of the lies perpetrated by that newspaper previously and repeated again in their latest article, as is the claim about a house in the town of Ballina, which belongs to Brendan Gallagher where he lives with his wife and children.
One of the major questions about this entire campaign of harassment and intimidation we have to ask is who can be backing all of this and paying for the constant repeating – not only in the Sunday World – of lies and falsity but also on TV3, E3 and Dialogue Ireland allegedly about cults. Who is backing this campaign for seven years against an innocent person who has tried only to pass on what she has received to believers, many of whom have enormously benefited from what they have received.
Many many were ‘at death's door‘ but were totally healed. Not only those given up to die have been brought back and healed but countless individuals have been converted with over 700 healing testimonies on record. Yet not one of these was ever related in the Sunday World or on TV3, although they are upheld by the testimony of medical consultants. The only purpose of the Sunday World and TV3 appears to be to endanger or destroy.
Another obvious question is why any television channel would find it worthwhile to keep continually repeating the same programme over and over, in an unprecedented way? In the space of one year the TV3 programme has been repeated on that channel or on E3 up to a dozen times, for no apparent reason other than to damage Mrs Gallagher and the House of Prayer. Since the most popular programmes are never repeated like this, we have to question who has been paying for this senseless repetition month after month?
We, the people who visit the House of Prayer, are highly insulted at the ineptitude of the use of the word ‘cult’ . The House of Prayer and the devotions there could never be considered a cult as only the regular prayers of the Catholic Church are prayed there by believers, and are the same as what takes place in churches everywhere. Furthermore, we the people go there freely and voluntarily, and to suggest that we are gullible or under some kind of influence is utterly false and absolutely wrong.
The book by the same Sunday World writer about Christina Gallagher was produced without his ever meeting or speaking with Christina Gallagher or with any members of her family, and the entire contents were based on falsehoods – a book of fiction and deception which is proven by a number of letters which we hold from Mrs Gallagher's family members… they, too, are horrified by the enormous deception of lies.
Sadly, long before the sustained newspaper and media attacks began, a great deal of misunderstanding was permitted to come about following the removal of the Sacraments from the House of Prayer in Achill in 1998 and also through failure to acknowledge evidence of the supernatural at work there. We understand that thirteen years ago a full account of the most remarkable medically investigated healings reached the local archbishop but there was no change in the situation.
The removal of the Sacraments provided an open door to hostile individuals to behave in this manner. Sadly, we the people see the grave injustice as we witness the failing health of Mrs Gallagher due to all this. There is a law for bullying and harassment. Why isn’t there as law for Mrs Gallagher? Even though she is cruelly setup as a marked person, as well as being bullied and harassed, there doesn’t seem to be a law for her. Where are people who are subjected to such wanton media attacks supposed to go in order to gain some protection? Can media people write what they like or say what they like without being called to account? When we last sought balance and fairness in discussions with TV3 about our participation in a programme they wouldn’t grant the conditions we requested. As of now we would not trust them. There is no other word for it than ‘trial by media’.
A YOUNG Dublin man (centre), who lost two of his older brothers to drugs, one from an overdose of heroin, the other from drug abuse also, and who himself was daily taking drugs and unable to kick the habit, visited Our Lady Queen of Peace House of Prayer Achill on May 2012 after being urged by a friend to go there.
Message received by Christina Gallagher from Jesus for July 16th & July 25th 2013
I desire you open your hearts to Me who am Truth. If you can do this, you will know truth and you will want to live truth and live by My laws.
There are some of you here today who do not want to open your hearts but you desire to make your own false judgement of Me and of My vessel (Jesus uses the word ‘vessel’ to refer to Christina) whom I have chosen for your sake. So many have great disrespect for her and condemn her just as the sinners condemned Me.
If you could only realise the road and the life I have chosen for my vessel, you would not make the same condemnation of her as was made of Me: you would pray much for her to fulfill this mission I have given her – which is all for you’re your benefit.
I want you, through an open heart, to receive My truth and live it. The day is fast approaching when you will need My wisdom and guidance through My vessel.
Today there are some of you here whose ears are closed to truth. I say to you, My people how long are you going to reject My laws? My law is the same law as that of God My Father.
Many of you endure the cross. I tell you, come to Me you who labour and I will give you rest but first you must believe in Me and trust Me. I call you “My people” because I gave My Life for you. My Sacred Heart yearns for you to find My Life once again and let your soul be aflame with love and life. There you will find peace and healing of heart – without that, you have nothing.
My Mother’s House is a house of prayer, called for by Me but through My Mother. Some of you will witness great signs at this House. It will be protected from the onslaught of evil. Soldiers will arrive on your island of Ireland and devour many. They will kill and suppress many people. Those soldiers will be people who do not know Me: their hearts are full of hate and their minds think only of murder. Prepare yourselves now and listen to the guidance I give you through this vessel I have chosen for your times. Protect her and respect her. Let your tongue not condemn you for the evil words you speak about her which you know are untrue.
Your country made its choice for gain and made welcome what will destroy your country and many people. Do not make the same mistake again.
I want you to look around you. See all that My Mother called you to as She begged your response over these many years – only to be ignored by many. So many of you kept running around to find what others had to say while all the time your hearts were closed in response to My Mother but mostly open to the evil attacks. If you possessed My wisdom. You would know and live truth.
On this special day which is marked in Heaven, listen and respond.
Those of you who have helped this work and My dear vessel, I will welcome you in My Father’s House. You will have the grace of repentance before death. As your soul departs from your body, it will be led into the atriums of Eternity in Life with Me.
There are many bad things coming to your world very soon. I tell you, prepare now. Open your hearts, starting today. Reject the temptation that will try very hard to seduce you and try to convince you of this Work not being of Me. Denounce what you hear and know is wrong. Offer it to Me and pray. Soon the temptress of all lies will be bound and cast into her rightful place* It is I who broke the chains of death that held humanity bound. I set all free and gave life unto all. It is your choice to live in that life or die in darkness and evil.
Today I bless each one of you, believer and unbeliever alike who is here on this special day. I present it with affection to My Mother who loves you, Her children. She prays for you and intercedes for you all the time because Her love is pure. Take heart, My people, on this special day. Decide to change your life for truth. Turn away from darkness and death. Listen to My guidance and treasure My vessel and My brother who has been chosen to be by her side all these years.
My people, I leave you My blessings and many graces to help you decide.
There are many angels and saints united with My Mother with you here today. Rejoice and let your hearts be full of grace and joy to make them welcome.
I bless you in the graces of the Godhead, through My Heart, full of Mercy,
Father, Son and Holy Spirit
* The temptress is a form taken by the devil and mentioned in chapters 17 and 18 of the book of REVELATION.
In Response to Peoples Queries
Many people in the US and in Ireland have queried concerning what they were told regarding the background to the sacraments being removed in 1998 from the House of Prayer.
Archbishop Neary did ask Christina to integrate the work of the House of Prayer using the words, to 'bring it under the umbrella of the archdiocese'. Christina's only desire was what Our Lady requested namely, that priests and people be able to unite in prayer in the House. That, however, was not how it was going to be under the archbishop's proposal. His suggestion was that the House of Prayer be closed to the public; that the people would not be able to go there and pray- they would be able to go only to the local church; there would be a named private few permitted in the House of Prayer and Mass permitted on occasion there for them only.
Archbishop Joseph Cassidy (RIP) had opened the House as Our Lady requested. It was he himself who put in place the daily sacraments within it. Christina was unable to undo the request of Our Lady which Archbishop Cassidy had honoured and blessed in this way. She closed the House at that time, when those original facilities were being stripped away. This she did, not out of disobedience but not knowing what to do. Then the people who had put the House in place challenged her and said that they had given to acquire the House in response to Our Blessed Mother and Christina did not have a right to close it against their wishes.
Over 700 reported healings exist, five of which have been professionally investigated by medical consultants. The medically approved healings (declared by consultants to be medically, scientifically and psychologically inexplicable and far exceeding the proof rountinely accepted by the Church) which were brought to Christina's notice were handed to archbishop Neary and she was told he had read them and handed them back but never acknowledged the fact that the supernatural was at work, having previously stated in so many words that the supernatural was not at work ("no evidence presented which might prove...supernatural phenomena...").
In September 2000, his office told THE IRISH FAMILY NEWSPAPER, "The archdiocese has not carried out any investigations with regard to any claims on the part of people that they have been healed of life threatening illnesses as a result of contact with Mrs.Gallagher and her work. No plans exist at present to conduct such investigations." How, then, can the archbishop allow a statement to stand asserting that the supernatural is not at work? Surely the healings should be checked out before permitting such a statement to remain promulgated.
As Christina always states, she has no healing powers. She can only pray and plead with God and Our Lady and then accept all results in the holy Will of God. She never knows who is going to be healed until people come and acknowledge it.
Finola and Rose McManus - Doctors said my baby was dead and would have to be removed.
When doctors told Finola McManus her baby was dead in her womb and it would have to be removed, she and her husband decided she should go to Our Lady Queen of Peace House of Prayer in Achill. There she met Christina Gallagher who with her spiritual director Fr Gerard McGinnity prayed for her baby. When she returned to the hospital to have the baby removed, many doctors gathered round and told her, we have a heart beat !
John Garbutt (Church of England) came to the House of Prayer Achill with his wife, Naomi, on a
pilgrimage in October 1997.
About 3 years previously, when he was 28 years old, he was involved in a freak accident when four vertebrae between his shoulders were crushed, as were vertebrae in his neck. Surgery was too dangerous. He also
developed Osteoarthritis in his lumbar region. All of his injuries were such that and he was in severe pain, was unable to hold a cup and he frequently suffered from involuntary shaking. For the enormous pain resulting from the
damage he was given heavy doses of drugs.
"The discomfort and severity of my condition" he says, "seemed to make it impossilbe for me to travel to the House of Prayer." His mother-in-law, having been to the House of Prayer Achill in September, gave him a Matrix Medal and Holy Water from the font there and said "You must go to the House of Prayer Achill, there is
'terrific' peace there."
His pilgrimage group travelled by boat to Ireland however John and Naoimi decided to fly to Knock, meeting them there. On Saturday 18th October 1997, they attended Mass in the House of Prayer. As an Anglican, John was unable to receive Holy Communion, but he says "I felt a great yearning at Holy Communion time to go up to the priest for a blessing. As it was extremely painful to move
I was helped to the Altar. Hunch backed from the accident I could not look up properly, but inwardly, as the priest blessed me with the Blessed Sacrament I felt I was being healed."
In 2000, the case of John Garbutt, along with three other outstanding healings received further independant medical examination and doctors concluded that they merited to be submitted to Church Authorities.
Jed Michael from Seattle, USA, suffered from deep vein thrombosis for three years then had a miraculous healing, which he attributes to two meetings with Christina Gallagher.
Jed Michael, now 30 years old, was born at just 26 weeks gestation. He was just 2lbs in weight at birth and was not expected to
survive. He did however survive, but due to his prematurity he was faced with many
challenges in life. He attended a special school for dyslexia and had to attend an
occupational therapist and speech therapist for a severe speech impediment.
In February 1996, at the age of 18, Jed
presented to his doctor, Dr Sargur M.D. a consultant haematologist, with tenderness and swelling of his right lower leg with deep
discoloration and was diagnosed with deep vein thrombosis, which was described as a life threatening condition for such a young man.
In 2000, the case of Jed Michael, along with three other outstanding healings received further independant medical examination and doctors concluded that they merited to be submitted to Church Authorities.
On 16th July 1999 in the House of Prayer Achill, Dr Michael Anketell listened to Fr McGinnity speak of various healings which had taken place there over the years. One in
particular stood out for him, which was that of cancer of the pancreas. As the lady was present that day he met her to discuss her story. He describes it as follows:
She first became ill on March 17th 1997 with severe central abdominal pain accompanied rapidly with the onset of jaundice. She was admitted to Tralee General Hospital under the care of Mr D F Spillane FRCS Chief Surgeon of Tralee Hospital for further investigation. Scans of her bilary tree showed an obstruction of her common bile duct. She was then referred to Tullamore General Hospital under the care of Consultant Gastroenterologist
Dr Humphrey O'Connor MD FRCSI, for a highly specialised procedure in order to discover the cause of the obstruction. He concluded that she had a malignant bilary obstruction and informed her husband before referring her back to Mr Spillane in Tralee.
Mr Spillane also concluded that Mrs O'Sullivan had a malignant cancerous tumour of the head of the pancreas which had invaded her common bile duct, causing the jaundice, loss of weight and loss of appetite. He decided to inform Mrs O'Sullivan in early April of 1997 that she had pancreatic cancer and discharged her home.
In 2000, the case of Kathleen O'Sullivan, along with three other outstanding healings received further independant medical examination and doctors concluded that they merited to be submitted to Church Authorities.
The Matrix medal
"I received the Matrix Medal from my chapel in Peabody, MA in July 2012. This is truly a miraculous medal.
I wanted to apply for US VISA extension for my son to stay in US. A lot of suggestions and rules from the lawyers office regarding the VISA regulations
confused me and my family a lot. In fact we were going through a state of dilemma. Anxiety regarding what is going to happen in the future and the most
important question mark, whether the family will stay together. If my son's VISA is not approved, I and my other children would have to leave USA and my husband has to continue
working alone in the US.
This means at least for 3 years we have to be separeated. Being so worried and upset at the thought of separating away from my husband and the children away from their father.
Not knowing what to do and I noticed the Matrix Medal which I got from the church. Since there was no other solution to my problem and I vaguely looked at the Matrix medal and challenged it saying
"If you are true, get the VISA for my son" and I took the Matrix medal and put it in the passport and placed it in a bag and closed it. Finally the day came to meet the Visa officers to my surprise they approved
the visa without any hassle. The officers were very helpful and considerate.
Without Matrix Medal this family wont be together today and my son would not be going to college this spring Jan 2013.
In October 2012 a recording was made at Our Lady Queen of Peace House of Prayer in the US, at the conclusion of Holy Mass. When viewed it was found to have a remarkable light coming from the host, pulsating and lighting up the casing of the monstrance.
