Who I am and the origins of this site


How this website came about

My name is Glenn Dallaire and I live in Bristol, CT, USA. I am happily married to my beloved wife and friend, Brenda, and together we have seven wonderful children, thanks be to God. I was born on September 14--the Feast of the Triumph of the Holy Cross.

I have been working in the Computer IT Tech Support field since 1994. I love the Catholic Church and the holy faith of our Fathers very deeply. However, this was not always the case.

Although I was raised a Catholic, by age 16 I stopped going to Mass, and I had very little interest in God, the Catholic faith or even spirituality in general. This religious indifference continued throughout my teenage years and into my early twenties. Then, thanks be to God for His mercy and kindness, I met my wife-to-be, and through her holy and faithful example, God enkindled in me a desire to know Him. (As a side note, our first date was on the feast of St Mary Magdalene (July 22), and we were later married on the feast day of Our Lady of La Salette (Sept 19), all to show, once again, how God arranges things using specific dates as a significance). But going back to the story, at that time my wife was associated with a movement founded by a certain certain mystic, and as I began reading the autobiography written by this mystic, I was immediately enraptured by her extraordinary faith, and the remarkable graces that God gave to her. Through the reading of the life of this mystic, faith in God was awakened in me; I had a deep longing for God for the first time in my life. I was 28 years old.

Inspired and edified by her exceptional love for God, I continued reading the lives of other Mystics of the Church, including the life of the remarkable mystic, St Gemma Galgani, whose fervent love for God has deeply inspired me. So, I decided to put my computer skills to work for the love of God, and over the course of over a year I put together a website devoted to St Gemma, located here: http://www.stgemmagalgani.com/. Since I first read her remarkable Autobiography back in the year 2000, Saint Gemma has always been my favorite Saint. Her heart was all on fire with the love of God and anyone who reads her autobiography, diary or letters will be completely moved by her fervent devotion to God.

Next, I put together a second website devoted to another extraordinary mystic, the founder of the Passionists, St Paul of the Cross. Since then I have also built websites devoted to the Miracles of the Church and the Miracles of the Saints.

For me, the Mystics of the Church website and my other websites are really a "work of love and reparation" so to speak, and I have really been enjoying creating them over the past few years. I spent much of my life in selfish and sinful pursuits, so the websites are a sort of reparation for me; a kind of redemption for my "past" life.  While studying and learning about our Mystic-Saint friends in heaven, I have been blessed through these websites to meet many wonderful people in the process. My hope and intention for all of my websites has always been that in some small way they might help to bring souls closer to Jesus and Mary.

Since coming back to the Catholic faith in 1996, I have read the inspiring lives of quite a few mystics, quite often the lesser known mystics. In fact, I have a small library of books, most of which are on the lives of the mystics. For me, it was without a doubt the heroic example of the mystics that led me to God and the practice of the Catholic faith. And so, I am deeply indebted to the Mystics of the Church for their loving witness and their heroic lives of sacrifice and virtue that penetrated into my little world of self-centeredness and religious indifference. And because of my life of indifference towards God and my countless sins, I have taken great comfort in the Psalm 25 which says: "Remember O LORD that Your compassion and Your love are from of old. The sins of my youth and my frailties remember not; in Your kindness remember me, because of your goodness, O LORD....Remember Your mercies O Lord."

And so, it is in a spirit of deep gratitude and thanksgiving that I am creating this website in honor of the extraordinary Mystics of the Church, especially the lesser known mystics that inspired me the most.

It is my fervent prayer that the pages herein will be of some small service to the Catholic Church and Her faithful followers. I pray that the Mystics fiery love of God may penetrate into the hearts of all who visit here, and inspire in us a greater love and devotion for our God, who is most worthy of all of our love.

I enjoy receiving emails and discussing the Mystics and Saints of the Church so feel free to contact me with any comments or suggestions. My email address is: gdallaire1@gmail.com

Yes, enough! ... My shoulders shall replace Yours in bearing the cross!" -St Gemma Galgani

Thank you for this wonderful website! I have found some of the best spiritual reading as a result of your blog on the mystics. How great is the communion of saints... each one of us helping to lead another to Heaven.
God Bless You!

Glenn Dallaire said...

Hi Anonymous,

Thanks you for your kind comments. Yes, the Communion of Saints is a very comforting and inspiring truth...to know that the Saints in heaven are always praying and intereceding for us before the throne of God, especially when we pray and ask for their intercession.
I am so glad to hear that you are enjoying the website.

God bless you Glen. I love your website. I find myself here every other day. Love it, love it, love it. I'm a prodical son who is now a year old in faith. The Lord led me to your site. There is so much here, so much I want to read, but I am unable to sit on the computer for too long. I tried printing screens out without success. Can you share your resources with me? What books do you recommend?
In Jesus and Mary,

Daniel said...

Hello again Glenn, I just noticed you do have books listed as references on 10 of these precious lives. What would really be awesome is you turning this website into a book!!! I would love to buy it, as opposed to buying all of the books you read. Just for starters, just as an appetizer, then in a few years I could start buying the books you cite here. What do you think?

In Jesus and Mary,
Daniel McGann dpmcgann72@gmail.com

Glenn Dallaire said...

Hi Daniel,
It is great to hear from you again.

Thanks for the suggestion of possibly turning this website into a book. Honestly, I have never even thought of it.

I do know of a great website devoted to St Padre Pio that for a good number of years has produced an excellent quarterly newsletter full of great interviews and stories about St Pio. And just recently they turned all these newsletters into a excellent book full of these stories and interviews about Padre Pio.

And so, your suggestion is certainly something to consider.

Also, thanks for asking about an updated list of books. I actually need to make an updated list, as I have recently added some mystics without providing info on the source books. In fact, I am currently working on an article about another American Mystic named Rhoda Wise, however after this is published I will definitely work on an updated book list.

Thanks again Greg and may God continue to draw you ever closer to Himself.
Keep in touch!

Dear Glenn! Thank You so very much! I just discovered your site through Josefa Menendez yesterday. Can not get enough of it! I already e-mailed it to my friends. What a beautiful website! Just essentials, not overloaded, simple and so delightful! Did You have a chance to visit True Life In God website (www.TLIG.org) and read Jesus’ Odes of Love Messages? The most amazing Lord’s work I ever read! I recommend it very much to everybody! They have an Internet radio, so you can listen too. Well, again – THANK YOU for your work, time and wonderful personality! God Bless You and Your Family!

In Christ Love,

Hi Renata,
Thank you for your kind message.

I am really happy to hear that you are enjoying the website. I too love Sr. Josefa Menendez. Many of the things that Jesus told her are very inspiring and her response to Jesus through her holy life is very inspiring also. Thank you for the link that you provided.

Best wishes and may God bless you and yours!

Hello, again, Glenn, I am cousin to Little Rose and was curious- are you related to Little Rose as well? What are your experiences with her and thank you so very much for visiting my site and for writing such a beautiful piece on Little Rose- the flower of R.I. I owe her my life and I have witnessed repeatedly such sweet miracles she has done even now near 75 years later- Wow! It & she can take your breath away! :) I look forward to talking with you soon. With much love, and many blessings to you always, Laurie W.

Glenn Dallaire said...

Hi Laurie W,
Thanks for your kind comments.

As for myself, I soon became devoted to Marie Rose Ferron shortly after I began reading Fr. Boyer's excellent book "She Wears a Crown of Thorns". Afterwards I also read Jeanine Savard Bonin's book. And then later Fr. John Baptist Palm's book "Tape Recorded Little Rose Testimonies"---although I did not read all of that one. I see in Marie Rose an authentic holiness and love for God. You are blessed to have such an extraordinary soul for a cousin!
I've written three articles about her for my websites because I belive her life is an extraordinary example of devotion for the love of God and souls.

Thanks again and may God bless you and yours,
Glenn Dallaire

I had never heard of the book "He and I" until I read your blog, and just in time for Christmas.

Fantastic website, thank you!!!

Yes, I highly recommend the book "He and I". It is in my top five list of books of the best spiritual reading. It really is that good.

Great work and devotion! I have been on this website for a couple of days reading - strarting with Mary Magdalene. I too am in the IT world as a Sr. Manager in QA.

I would like your permission to add a link to your site to two of my own devotional sites:
Http://infantjesusblog.com
- a devotion to Infant Jesus for prayers answered for work in 2004 (by praying the Infant Jesus Novena).
Http://thecloudofunknowing.com
- a devotion to the mystical and internal prayer method handed down through the centuries that invites God's presence by harnessing your own intent to consent to his presence.

Augustina said...

Hello Glenn, was wondering if the mystic you write about that influenced you coming back to the faith - is he/she still living? If not, would you be able to share his/her name? I too, have known a very gifted soul who has since past away. Who knows, maybe the same person?

Glenn Dallaire said...

Hi Augustina,
It is nice to meet you. Thanks for your comments.
Yes, the mystic that I once knew (whose religious movement that she founded helped bring me back to the Catholic faith) is most definitely still alive, so this is one of the reasons why I prefer not to disclose her name, as I am sure you can understand.

I will state that out of obedience to the judgement of the Catholic Church, I am no longer associated with her and the movement that she founded, since a few years ago the movement itself received a negative judgement from the Vatican.

This shows once again the extreme caution and prudence that must be taken in regards to mystics.

This is my first time on your websites. There's a lot of great info here. Thanks.

I'm curious if you have ever heard of Little Audrey Santo of Worcester and what you think of her life and the numerous signs and wonders associated with her. IN GOD'S HANDS is the title of the book about her life and there is a website and Foundation now dedicated her Cause.

Glenn Dallaire said...

Hi Anonymous,
Thanks for your comments.

Yes, I have occasionally read some documentation about the late "little" Audrey Santo of Worcester, Massachusetts. She (and her mother I would add) are definitely extraordinary souls, who without a doubt suffered some remarkable trials and crosses.

Perhaps, God willing, the Church will one day recognize her cause.

May God bless you and your loved ones,

I just found your blog today. I love it! Very inspiring. The photos are great. One comment that I may lend is in the inclusion of Luisa Piccarreta. I find it very disturbing with the emptying of a prominent convent(I will not say who because of its notoriety) because of the invasion of Divine Will. The Sr. responsible for bringing Luisa Piccarreta's works and Divine Will into the convent has been suspended from there by the Vatican and not allowed to step on the grounds. The entire thing was extremely scandalous and caused loss of many vocations and hurt and division among many Catholics in the area. There is a large cult surrounding this entire situation and person that believes that there is more revelation after Jesus Christ. This is contrary to our Faith.

Glenn Dallaire said...

Hi Anonymous,
Thank you for your comments about the Servant of God, Luisa Piccarreta. Like many other mystics her life and the extraordinary greaces that she alledgedly recieved can be percieved at times as controversial. Then too sometimes those who follow a particular mystic can interpret the mystics writings, actions or graces that they might have recieved incorrectly. And without a doubt some of Luisa's writings on the Divine Will have been not only misintepreted, but also mistranslated. But of course we can't judge a mystic by the erroneous judgements or actions of his/her followers.

So far the cause for canonisation of Luisa has been progressing and most recently, the second theologian assigned to evaluate the writings of Luisa Piccarreta by the Vatican Congregation for the Causes of the Saints has given a positive, that is, a favorable judgement. This means that both of the official censors librorum for the cause of Luisa have found nothing contrary to the faith in her writings, and her cause can now go forward.

At the end of the article on Luisa Picaretta here you can find the current position of the Church concerning her.

Thanks again for your comments and may God bless you and your loved ones,
Glenn Dallaire

Dear Glenn,
I do prison ministry at CA. State prison for men at Avenal. The Chaplain asked me to encourage devotions to the inmates and now I am going to share with them your wonderful website. I will also share on Facebook, Twitter, and other places your work for Jesus on this site with a prayer that the information in it will open their hearts to grace. I often tell them they are the army of God in that prison of over 7,000 men because only anywhere from 8 to 10 or 25 or so show up for my presentations, so I encourage them to take courage and approach the other men with God's merciful messages. I hope, Glenn, that you have plans for others to carry on your work after God calls you someday.

Hi Michael F. Ross,
It is nice to meet you. Thanks for your kind comments.

As you probaly read in the little "who I am" biography above, the Mystics of the Church had a huge impact on me and really were responsible for my conversion into the practice of the faith, so I understand well when you say that the Mystics of the Church have had a strong inpact on you in your conversion.

Anyway, thanks again Michael and may Jesus continue to draw you ever closer to Himself.

Hi Sister Veronica Brutosky C.S.J.,

I am very happy to hear that you are enjoying this website. Thanks so much for your kind remarks and for your encouragement. It is still very much an ongoing "work in progress" and I hope to add many more articles as time goes on. And I do hope someday that one of my children will "take over the reins" of this website someday, if that would be the holy will of God.

I am very happy to hear of your prison ministry and I fervently pray that God may bless and guide you in your efforts to bring the Gospel to those who often are foresaken by society and are really in need of hearing it.

Just to let you know your website is not obsolete. I am directed to your website many times when I google a mystic! Keep it up.

Hello Glenn,

I forgot exactly how I actually came across your website and it was only a few days ago. In part it was through googling for mystic as in those most well known in the Church, particularly on St Teresa of Avila. when I noticed your website, I decided to check it out. Here, I would state that I want to read your content with mature spirit so as profit from the virtues of desiring for God and letting go the supernatural aspect out since I'm not particularly strong in spiritual life yet.

Nevertheless, thank you for your work and I will come back to discover more about life in God.

The heart that seeks God will find Him, He is lovely,sweet, Nd brings fullness to the soul. in recent years God has brought me to a deeper awareness of Himself as I have learned to listen for His quiet whisper. My understanding of the mystics has grown at the same time. through unusual circumstances I have found myself in the possession of several of their writings. I find that a mystics closeness to God has a warmth that resonates with my own soul.

I wrote a book with some of my contemplations, prayers, and times of consolations written at a Lookout Point in California. It may interest you since it has that warmth of expression and sense of God's closeness. I will leave this info here: The Meeting Place, Moments with God at Lookout Point by N. L. brumbaugh.

THE GOOD SHEPHERD

Lord, carry us safely on Your shoulders
our feet hurt from the rocks and the boulders
the edgy stones, the thistles and the thorns
paved for us by coldhearted scorns

We feel total abandonment and rejection
we don't feel any compassionate affection
we CRY OUT
L O U D

Father, why? Have You forsaken us ?
satan uses even his blunderbuss
to annihilate us, bringing us to despair
"he can't touch you, not even a single hair !"

Offer Me all your troubles and pain
I will change it into eternal gain
not only for you, but for many in need
of conversion, salvation, waiting to be freed

I see everything, I know everything about you
My children, I will never forsake you My beloved crew
but I need souls who willingly, freely sacrifice
and offer their sufferings so souls can win the prize

Take courage, My little ones, it's only a short time
I love you, I love you, You are so much Mine
Your Father will NEVER abandon you, NEVER EVER
especially NOT in these times of dangerous stormy weather.

I love you so much, Your Jesus.

Dear Glenn,

I was little late to know your work, I didn't know about this.I believe Jesus brought me here while I was searching about the ways to keep devil and its minions out of life.
The lives of mystics you brought for me often bring tears and When I read about little Nellie, I was weeping literally,I realized how small I am in faith in front of that sweet Child of GOD.

Thanks Glenn - with out your efforts I would not have got in touch with those inspiring lives of Saints and Mystics.

Love you in Jesus,

May god bless you

Your website has inspired me to reflect more on my RC faith and to reconcile with it even more. Like you I have led a largely indifferent life towards it up until now, where I'm beginning to see how spiritually neglectful I have been. I think working in computer technology as I do (like you), can do that sort of thing to you.

I also think that people today need religion like never before (just look at the state of the world), as Science and Technology seem to have replaced it in the minds of so many, making them disdain and reject it as an unnecessary intrusion in their modern secular lives.

Keep up the good work Glenn.

Glenn Dallaire said...

Hi "Irish visitor",
Thank you for your kind comments. I am glad to hear that you are enjoying the website. As for myself, I have found that technology--especially the internet---can be a such a great blessing, and can be used as a very powerful tool that Jesus can use to lead ourselves and others closer to Him, but as you well know unfortunately it can also influence people in negative ways. Yet, in my opinion I have found that if we try to please Jesus and seek Him--to try to love, to know and learn more about Him, then I have found that He inspires and guides us in so many different ways, and leads us to this or that book, or this or that website etc...I am always amazed at how Jesus and the Blessed Virgin Mary continually intercede for us before the Father, and place people or things in our path that help to lead us closer to Himself.

Anyway, thanks again for your kind comments. And "stay tuned" because I have many more articles that I plan to publish on this website, God willing. In fact, the next articles are on the sacred stigmata and then another on the Church approved apparitions in Kibeho, Africa, which as you may know, occurred in the 1980's and was approved in 2002.

-May God bless you and your loved ones,

Randy Hernandez said...

Praise be to God for such a wonderful website Bro. Daniel! You are doing a great service to mankind especially Him who sacrificed His life for us so that all humanity might be saved, our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ in obedience to our Heavenly Father Who created us and the Holy Spirit Who made it possible and through the intercession of our Blessed Mother Mama Mary and all the holy angels and saints.

Somehow my young adult years corresponds to what you went through early in life. And coincidentally, i too am an IT guy like you- thanks to our Lord's great mercy and His Mother's and our Mother, including the help of angels and saints i called upon during the darkest trials of my life physically and most especially spiritually- even though i'm still battling a lot of bad habits i acquired during my early sinful life. A hard battle indeed! But no matter, God is my refuge and defender!

I once made an inspirational website (quotes/excerpts from the Bible) during the late 90's which i dedicated to all who are undergoing such difficult trials (no longer runs unfortunately). It was the time when i underwent the greatest trial of my life which inspired me to make it.

Anyway, just thankful that i came upon your site. It really is a faith-inspiring site. I pray that many others would chance upon it, especially the non-believers that they might believe and turn to God as the only salvation they will ever need.

I've so many things to tell, but time constricts it as it would be very long.

Anyway, i'm from the Philippines, i would like ask if you knew about my fellow countryman, Bro. Stanley Villavicencio, whom our Lord Jesus brought back to life after being clinically dead for 3 days to spread devotion to His Divine Mercy, just as St. Faustina was the first advocate. He had been around the world spreading the devotion and messages of our Lord. He attended the canonization of St. Faustina in 2000 and made his testimony in front of bishops and priests present at that time. He has the approval of the catholic church and was first invited by EWTN in the US to give his testimony on the Divine Mercy.

Hope you can get to know him (if ever you don't know him yet:)) and see if you can also mention him in your website.

You can google search him :).

Thank you bro and God bless you, your family and endeavors always.

To God be the glory!!!

Yours in Christ Jesus,

Randy Hernandez

I READ YOUR BIOGRAPHY AND I APPRECIATE YOU GLEN. THATS WONDERFUL. BUT YOU MISSED SOMETHING THAT IS VERY IMPORTANT. YOU HAVE NOT MENTIONED THAT YOU READ THE MOST IMPORTANT BOOK THAT IS THE HOLY BIBLE. LIFE OF THE MYSTICS ARE GOOD AND THAT IS THE SUPPORTING FACTS OF THE HOLY BIBLE. READ THE HOLY BIBLE ESPECIALY THE GENESIS AND YOU WILL BE ENLIGHTENED WHERE WE CAME FROM NOT OF THAT PROCLAMATION OF THE EVOLUTION AND BIG BANG THEORY THAT POPE FRANCIS DECLARED TO BE REAL. PAUL

I was just curious on the life of Claude Newmann so i searched for him and found his biography here, and I just realized that reading the life of the Mystics of the Church is just a better way to spend time rather than reading the unlimited posts on social network and I thank God I found your website and such a blessing its nice to know you have other website so I'm gonna be checking on those on my free time ;) truly the life of the saints and the miracles of the Church, the miracles of our Lord and our Lady is incomparable to any novels or famous fiction books or stories out there. Its simply beautiful to read and instead of speaking gossip to your friend it would be nice to talk about the life of the saints and such, which is truly amazing.

God bless us all!

I was just reading up about St Anthony of Padua and how baby Jesus came to be in his arms and then I stumbled on your website. I am so happy with your website as it mentions Maria Simma and Maria Valtorta, which these women I have heard of and read a bit about them but there are so many more that I don't know of, which I believe reading about the others on your website is much better than reading magazines and going on Facebook. Thank you so much for setting up this website and may God bless you. I am going to go and read some more things on your website and be inspired by these less unknown mystics and hopefully get some answers to questions in my life and the journey that I am on. Jesus I love you!

May God bless you and your loved ones,

Glen, thank you so much for this work you do.

I am pretty careful most of the time, but I am among those who fell for the entire Locutions to the World business. I always check out the spiritual advisor, and while I did visit with Msgr. John Esseff more than once on the phone that was a while ago, and before he withdrew from that.

Nice to see a profoundly detailed compilation of folks Catholics can trust. Please keep going for all of us...as a college teacher I admire you writing and your documentation. Jeff in Minnesota

Hi Jeff,
Thanks so much for your kind message and also your words of encouragement.

I too have had a couple of very trying experiences with purported mystics, however if we desire it God can always draw good out out everything, even unpleasant experiences.

Thanks again Jeff and may God bless you and your loved ones.

Thanks for putting this page together. I stumbled upon it by searching for stories on the internet of souls in purgatory asking those living for they're prayers, as I often pray them. Your webpage encouraged me to pray for them more fervently! ~ Rick Robinson
