My Story
img
  This story began in 1996 in the month of April. It was Easter weekend and my husband and I were traveling to Arezzo (as we do every month to sell in an antique market) a city in Tuscany, Italy. While driving to Arezzo, I remember being so frustrated and upset about my job, feeling like a complete failure. I cried the whole way there, three and a half hours, till we arrived at our hotel. I was so drained and exhausted that I went right to bed. In the middle of the night I was awaken by a voice in my mind saying: “Go to Assisi.” I had no idea what this was about, but I immediately knew that I had to go. How could I ignore such a calling, even if it was “just my imagination?” But deep inside I knew someone or something higher than myself was provoking me to trust my intuition and take a step into the unknown.
  I had been to Assisi a few times before and was always joyfully overwhelmed by the presence of peace and harmony that I felt there. When I arrived in Assisi, I decided to go to the Hermitage where St. Francis spent years living in the surrounding caves meditating, and communing with nature. As I walked along the dirt path, an image of a man’s face came into my mind and he began to speak to me. He was rather short, had a round face, and a big nose. He was wearing a brown tunic and a rope as his belt. Almost immediately I realized that it was St. Francis who was communicating with me. Later, he confirmed it. Then an ecstatic energy engulfed my body and I remained in the presence of his love for the next six hours. Mentally, he took me under a rainbow to a stone well where he sprinkled water on my head. Above me, I saw two hands in a praying position with white light around them. He talked to me about Truth, and I asked many questions. After being so upset the night before, he showed me such incredible compassion and sweetness that it gave me the deepest feeling of peace, and I wanted to stay in his presence forever. I left that day promising I would return the next month with a pad of paper and pen to write down the amazing wisdom he shared. I drove back to Arezzo in a daze already feeling like it was a beautiful “fairytale dream” that had happened to me.

  I did return a month later sure that he would be there. I instantly contacted him and started recording our conversation with pen and paper. This began a profound friendship between us and a beautiful monthly ritual of coming to Assisi to commune with St. Francis that I looked forward to and so cherished. It went on like this for two years until one day he asked me if I would help him write a Book of His Messages that would be pertinent to mankind at this time. Of course I accepted and using me as his voice, I jotted down the thoughts and words I heard him speak in my mind. The information I received for the book continued for another three years until, one day, he told me that the book was finished.
  I have learned so much from this experience and the friendship I continue to have with St. Francis that words cannot fully describe it. I give thanks every day for this extraordinary experience and only hope that in my daily life, I will continually put to use all the wisdom that he shared.
     St. Francis and I thank you for listening to our story, and hope that these messages will inspire you to take a look deeper into your heart and soul, so you may find your truth.

Love, Cheri
