Something amazing happened to me about five minutes ago, let me start from the beginning.
I am currently a high school student, my parents baptized me, I went through first communion etc., but my parents really arent practicing catholics and the only time we go to church is on easter and christmas. I've always believed in God, and have tried to do the right things, although sometimes getting swayed in the wrong direction or just not knowing enough and doing the wrong thing... but recently, about a weak ago I was just sitting around and was randomly inspired to go online and find out about mary's apparitions, when I was young I remember my religion teacher speaking of mary appearing to young children. So I went online, and after doing a few searches found medugorje and remembered this was what she was talking about. So, the last few days I've been reading / watching a lot about medugorje, especially on this forum, I was even inspired to start reading the bible.
But, now let me get to the point of my story. So, this is probably the 5th or 6th time i've been on this forum, and I started reading this post. In it, I read Tina's story and saw her footer that talked about the Chaplet of Divine Mercy. This sounded like something I should definately do, reading how Jesus put so much importance on it, and that every single person should say it.
So I looked up online how to say the prayer (had some trouble, because how it was explained, you needed knowledge of how to say the rosary, which I also didn't fully know
), but I eventually figured it out. So I found an old plastic rosary I had in my room and started saying the prayer.
Then it happened, I had this amazing sensation of warmth, heat, and radiance as I was saying the prayer. This was in no way normal, I could truly feel Jesus in the room! My hands even started sweating, the first ten times I said "For the sake of His sorrowful Passion, have mercy on us and on the whole world." I just felt that radiating heat, and then it wore of. This happened at about 7:25, 11/28/2008, just 25 minutes ago. Immediately after I registered at this forum and started writing this.
This was truly an amazing experience, I won't forget it. Although I've never questioned God or anything like that, now I've actually felt his presence, I've always tried to pray before going to bed and say a Hail Mary and Our Father, but the power of this prayer is amazing! Five minutes after reading about Tina's story, and how the people in the hospital room felt that radiating heat when Jesus was in the room, I felt the exact same feeling, wow
