This image of Vassula sitting on a wall on Patmos during the 2007 TLIG pilgrimage is one of my favourite photos of her. It is because she looks such an unlikely prophet!
But I'm sure that is just one of the reasons God chose her. I believe history will show her to be the greatest prophet of our age.
To quote Archbishop Frane Franic: "Therefore, I unite myself to all those Catholic bishops and theologians that defend the authenticity and sincere veracity of Vassula Ryden, seer and mystic, one of the greatest of our times" (see the Archbishop's full testimony further down this page)
Vassula Ryden is Greek, born in Egypt and belongs to the Greek Orthodox Church. In 1985, while living in Bangladesh, Vassula experienced a vision of her Guardian Angel Daniel, and later, after a purification and spiritual growth, she was called by God to serve Him by transmitting His divine words to people all over the world. Vassula receives the inspirations in the form of locutions and through interior visions. God asked Vassula to call these prophetic messages "True Life in God". The messages are a call to all from the Holy Trinity. God asks for a greater repentance, reconciliation, peace, love and, above all, the Unity of the Churches.
Publication of 'True Life in God' began in 1990 and the work has been translated into many languages and given rise to a widespread readership.
