Christina Gallagher - House of Prayer, Achill, County Mayo, IrelandIn January of 1988, a series of extraordinary events occurred which were to totally alter the lifestyle of Mrs. Christina Gallagher, a shy Irish housewife. In the period since then, these events have also affected the lives of a great many other people, not only in Ireland, but all over the world. Christina Gallagher's name has become known throughout the world.

On Thursday, January 21, 1988, while visiting a friend in Dublin, Mrs. Gallagher experienced an apparition of Our Lady, and a few weeks later she began to receive messages from the “beautiful lady”, who revealed herself as the Virgin Mary, Queen of Peace. In the apparitions, Our Lady conveyed an urgent yet simple message, one fully in harmony with the Gospels.

As Christina Gallagher explains: “What Our Lady is asking us to do is to turn back to God while there is still time, sincerely repent of our sins and go to Confession; to pray constantly, and to pray from the heart, especially the Rosary; to love God in the Mass and in the Eucharist; and to be united and to love one another and to stop finding fault and bickering and fighting with each other. Jesus Our Savior, Second Person of the Blessed Trinity, died on the Cross out of love for all of us, and we cannot pick and choose. We must love everyone, and even if others cannot recognize Christ in those who are the weakest of His little ones, we must do so. Until we can recognize that Jesus is in each and everyone we meet, how can we recognize Christ present in the Blessed Eucharist, and present in the world, living among us?”

The official Website below gives the many messages and other information about Christina Gallagher and the House of Prayer. There have been many detractors of the House of Prayer, Christina herself and the work carried out in this ministry, most notably by a self-appointed 'guardian of Our Lady' called Rick Salbeto. However, perhaps the statement from the Archbishop of Tuam below might leave the reader more open-minded as to the events taking place even today surrounding Christina's ministry.

On December 16th 1997 Archbishop issued a letter on the events surrounding The House of Prayer. He could not find evidence beyond reasonable doubt as to any supernatural cause for the phonomena but acknowledged that he could not question the integrity, good will, sincerity of spiritual devotion or orthodoxy of faith either in Christina or the calloborators in the work of The House of Prayer. He stated that there appears to be a great deal in the same work which is wholesome and good and which has been a force ofor good in the faith, prayer and lives of many people who have, in whatever manner, been associated or otherwise in contact with it. He stressed the need for the House of Prayer to be incorporated into the life of the Parish in Achill and closed by saying:

"While the Church is obliged to exercise the greatest caution in approving such works it cannot ignore the possibilities presented by the dynamism which has characterised this particular one so far. I believe it shows genuine poitential for growth and for making a valuable contribution to the life of the Church. In this regard I look forward to working closely with the members of the Association as they integrate their dedicated approach with that of the Parish of Achill and of the Archdiocese of Tuam in general"

The letter was then signed +Michael Neary, Archbishop of Tuam and dated 16/12/1997

Moytura has several other sites with a 'Christian flavour'.

Reflections for Lent offers a daily meditation for the 40 days of lent and the week leading into Easter. As part of my Journey section of the website join me to learn a little of the Early Christian Church in Ireland by visiting Clonmacnoise, founded by St. Ciaran on the banks of the River Shannon in the 6th. Century. Read about Saint Brendan the Navigator who started a Monastic settlement in the tiny village of Clonfert in the 6th century, located on the Galway/Offaly/Tipperary border. Travel on my journeys to two of Canada's most famous Catholic Shrines - Saint Anne de Beaupré and Cap de la Madeleine, both on the shores of the Saint Lawrence river in Quebec. Finally I welcome you to come with me to see a little of Medugorje, a peaceful haven in a war-torn country - Bosnia-Herzogovina.
