Saint Timon


The 19th of April is the feast day of Saint Timon the Deacon (1st c.).

Saint Timon lived during the 1st Century and is mentioned in the Acts of the Apostles in 6:5 by name. He was part of the 70 disciples who followed Jesus during His ministry. Saint Timon was later one of the first 7 Deacons chosen by the Apostles after Pentecost and Jesus’ ascension into heaven. He baptised many Greeks and Jews according to tradition. He also is said to have the ability to cast out devils and heal the sick. He died by crucifixion after they unsuccessfully tried to throw him into the furnace but he was unharmed by the fire.

July 2, 2018 Message to Mirjana

Dear children, I am the mother of all of you and, therefore, do not be afraid because I hear your prayers. I know that you seek me and that is why I am praying to my Son for you, my Son, who is united with the Heavenly Father and the Holy Spirit - the Paraclete - my Son who leads souls to the Kingdom from where He came, the Kingdom of peace and light. My children, you are given the freedom to choose, but, as a mother, I implore you to choose the freedom for the good. You, with pure and simple souls comprehend - even if sometimes you do not understand the words - and within yourselves you feel what the truth is. My children, do not lose the truth and true life so as to follow the false one. By life in truth, the Kingdom of Heaven enters into your hearts, and that is the Kingdom of peace, love and harmony. Then, my children, there will not be the selfishness which distances you from my Son. There will be love and understanding for your neighbors. Because, remember, again I repeat to you, to pray also means to love others, your neighbors, and to give yourself to them. Love and give in my Son, and then He will work in you and for you. My children, ceaselessly think of my Son and love Him immeasurably and you will have true life, and that will be for eternity. Thank you, apostles of my love.
