  2. 2. Carver Alan Ames was born on 9 November 1953 in the English town of Bedford. Despite his earlier upbringing as a Catholic, he strayed from the Church in no uncertain terms. His sinful ways led him to living a wasted life of crime, drinking and fighting. When he was virtually in the depths of despair, he met Kathryn, a girl from Australia. This meeting seemed to have changed his outlook on life. They were married and headed for Australia to begin a new life. Having been blessed with two children, and finding a good job, the move seemed to have paid off. A few years later Alan slipped back into his old ways and he found himself joining bad company and picking up his old habits of drinking and fighting. He became addicted to alcohol and other things. He lost respect for himself and for others and became very self-centred.
  3. 3. Time went by and Alan was now beginning to have nightmares and visions of bad things happening that kept him awake at night. Kathryn was very concerned with his behavior and suggested he see a priest. However, not having been a regular churchgoer, Alan did not take up this suggestion. In his quest for a solution Alan found himself going to various 'healers', but could see that they were swindling many out of their belongings and were doing little that made sense or that seemed good. This experience gave Alan an insight into the traps that lie in wait for the unwary. It was an angel who eventually spoke and guided Alan in the right direction. Further assistance came from St. Teresa of Avila, St. Stephen and the Apostles Andrew and Matthew. They taught him how to pray and explained the Scriptures. Alan was led back to the Catholic Church by heaven.
  4. 4. Some months later, after coming back to the Sacraments, Alan had his first vision of Our Blessed Mother. She appeared revealing Her Immaculate Heart. The visits of Our Lady to Alan continued as he endeavored, with encouragement, to lead a life of prayer. He was now attending Mass daily and reciting the rosary up to nine times a day. After speaking to Archbishop Barry Hickey of Perth, Australia, (his local bishop) about his experiences a spiritual director Fr. Gerard Dickinson was appointed by the Archbishop to watch over Alan and to examine Alan’s writings. Fr. Dickinson at first was skeptical but soon became Alan’s strongest supporter. ‘That he is being used by The Holy Trinity, our Blessed Lady and the angels and saints for a special purpose I have no doubt. My hesitancy and skepticism have gone.’ Wrote Fr. G. Dickinson, 15th August 1996. After the death of Fr. Dickinson the Archbishop appointed Fr. Richard Rutkauskas to be his replacement. A few months later Alan was stopped in his tracks as he found himself giving undivided attention to the heart warming voice, full of love and compassion, which he immediately recognized to be that of Jesus.
  5. 5. The Lord showed Alan the sins Alan had committed and how they had hurt Jesus on the cross, how they had hurt Alan’s soul and how they had hurt others. With his soul laid bare before him Alan just wanted to die as he realized how he had hurt God and others. The Lord, Jesus, with His compassionate and merciful heart called Alan to repent and offered Alan forgiveness. Alan begged for forgiveness and received it from The Lord in the sacrament of reconciliation. He fell in love with Jesus and promised to serve The Lord from now on. So began an incredible journey where Alan by the grace of God has travelled the world spreading the good news of Jesus’ love and the many gifts bestowed through Alan become evident in the healings and conversions that occur. ❀ ❁ ❀ ❁ ❀ ❁ ❀
