Burning the Midnight Oil


Caritas of Birmingham shipping area in the Tabernacle of Our Lady’s Messages is continuously filled with orders for Look What Happened While You Were Sleeping and the Seven Novenas for the Reconciling of Ourselves, Our Families, and Our Nation Back to God. To keep up with the orders, the Community of Caritas are working late into the night, filling these orders so that they may be mailed out as quickly as possible. As a Friend of Medjugorje wrote on the back of Look What Happened While You Were Sleeping, “The time is ripe. The time is now.” Because of the present state of our nation, it is important to please continue to pray that this book spreads far and wide. Most of the people we are hearing from tell us that they have experienced a transformation in their heart, and they want to get it into the hands of as many people as possible.


Dear Caritas Family, May 12, 2007


“I write you with a heavy heart but an awakening heart. How asleep I have been! As I read ‘Look What Happened While You Were Sleeping,’ I have been asking myself, ‘How did this happen?’ and “When did this happen?’

“As I read, I search and dig to take out all of this dullness and hardness that has coated my heart. I believe firmly in Our Lord’s love and mercy, so I will not give up. Our country is in serious, perhaps critical, condition, but what are we doing about it? I now pray with an urgency but with peace that God knows all, loves all, and wants to save us all.

“Thank you, thank you Caritas for all your prayers and sacrifices. I have missed you all very much. My life has taken many turns and detours over the past few years, but you are always and continue to be a great source of encouragement to me. I pray this book will be to our country as a great rushing wind as Our Lady says She is in. She is our Patroness and we must turn to Her again.

“I am ordering 3 more copies to help continue this revival of our country. Love and God’s blessing, to you all.
