Further Attacks on the House of Prayer: They just walked on a landmine.

It is clear that the HofP is getting rattled and they are producing rebuttals that would keep a printer in business. The latest is this one concerning Briege Hughes. Read our commentary on this attempt to deflect from the Empire of Wealth and Elder Abuse.

The Sunday World on 9th November 2014 carried yet another article by Jim Gallagher with even more totally false allegations against Christina Gallagher. In his latest attack he quotes statements made by Maria Hughes, that her mother Briege was ‘giving thousands of euro’ to Christina Gallagher. This is TOTALLY UNTRUE.

A: Is it totally untrue or only a little bit untrue?

 

Christina Gallagher had not even heard of Briege Hughes until her first and only encounter with her in October 2014 while on a pilgrimage to Padre Pio’s shrine in San Giovanni Rotondo.

Christina made a serious error in this regard to suggest she had no knowledge of Briege until October 2014. She was trying to distance herself from one of her most serious disciples. So her first statement is totally false. She has known about her for over five years. How do we know this? Because our source who was deeply involved in the House of Prayer confirmed today that Briege was deeply involved, and known to Christina.

Mrs Hughes has never given as much as a cent to the House of Prayer or to Christina Gallagher and Maria Hughes’ false claims printed in a national tabloid, being severely damaging to Christina Gallagher’s reputation and her mission, are being pursued.

We look forward to seeing how this issue is being pursued and will be able to bring direct evidence that monies have been raised for Christina. In fact the article showed how text messages proved that.

What has come to our attention, is that Briege Hughes owns two houses in Turkey, one of which we believe she has raised money for.

How did it come to the attention of the House of Prayer that Briege Hughes had houses in Turkey if Christina only got to meet her last month? Who was the source of this information? The family could not have been more aware of their mother’s involvement in Turkey. They have full awareness of their mother’s desire to have a house in Ephesus as it is where Mary came to live with the apostle John after the death of Jesus. Where did Briege get the idea to go there? From Christina of course who herself had ideas of heading down there to deal with her property mania. It is the understanding of DI that indeed Briege had some idea connected to her involvement with the HofP to go down there and purchase these properties. In other words so under the influence of the House of Prayer she has lost contact and connection with her family. They are very conscious that this Turkey experience are directly attributable of Brieg’s involvement with the HofP.
Maria never claimed that she knew what sums were going to the HofP, but because Briege had no finances and goes nearly every Saturday to Achill that the funds were not paying off the Turkish loans nor were they going to support her own family. Also Maria has the texts which prove she was raising funds for Christina. What is truly reprehensible is that Christina to protect her own back would turn on one of her most loyal supporters. Peter could not have denied his Lord in worse terms.

She has done this without any knowledge or permission from the Directors of the House of Prayer in Achill or Christina Gallagher.

My source confirms this as Christina wanted to disconnect from this years ago, but she knew of it and consequently has a problem in that she claims she only got to know of Briege’s existence last month.

We, the Directors of the House of Prayer, are only now discovering what Maria Hughes’ mother has been up to. We have obtained evidence that she has raised funds herself for these houses in Turkey, leading people to believe that in so doing they were assisting Our Lady Queen of Peace House of Prayer Achill, but her houses in Turkey have nothing whatsoever to do with the House of Prayer or Christina Gallagher. We have evidence in writing from those she approached for funds.

This absolutely true but in Briege’s mind it had everything to do with the HofP as there is in her world nothing outside the HofP. Yes she misinformed people as to her goal, but she is so under the influence of the HofP it was not surprising. We also suggest you publish the evidence about the houses, which again suggest you had information long before last month.

Perhaps Maria Hughes should ask her mother what she is doing with the money she is borrowing and collecting in a misleading way. Perhaps she should think twice before wrongly accusing others. Those who write such an article as this should think twice about the false accusations they are allowing Maria Hughes to make. We repeat that never has Briege Hughes given any money to Christina Gallagher or to any of the Houses of Prayer. She presented herself on a pilgrimage which ‘anyone’ could have joined.

The slightest investigation by the Sunday World would have revealed the facts behind Maria Hughes incorrect claims, which we ourselves have uncovered with ease.

Here two separate issues are being conflated. The issue of Houses of Breige and Houses of Christina. Did Breige give funds to the HofP in the form of purchasing materials or pictures, books etc? Absolutely. She also tried to raise funds thinking Christina was sick by text.By definition the HofP stating she has given no funds is hard to believe, as her life is totally focused on it. Considering the evidence where do they think the money went? Also the trip to Italy cost a pretty penny and BH must have felt that money she did not have could go for such a purpose. That suggests that normal rational criteria do not function for her. Finally, the claim that anyone could go on the trip is patent nonsense. You had to be part of the HofP to know it was happening. Also Joe Walsh tours run this same trip, but in this case it was totally under the control of the HofP.

It would be wise now for Maria Hughes to retract her false allegations before further action is taken.

Maria made no false allegation, but good try HofP. You need to retract your false testimony that Christina never knew Briege Hughes before last month.

All journalists who are curious to ask questions will find answers to all possible queries on our website http://www.christinagallagher.org.

Christina needs to answer the Irish public about her wealth and her life of luxury. She does not have the bottle to come out and face the music.

We would appreciate if they would publish the truth and not further misleading and deceptive stories.

DI would like you to stop doing what you are doing to the people of Ireland, treating us with contempt.

  4. The worse thing about this “cult” is that the so-called messages purported to be from the Blessed Mother are actually very insulting to this Holy Mother of Jesus–who lived very simply and in fact was poor! As also was Jesus…he slept outside on the hill across from Jerusalem (today it is on the property of a convent.) The messages claimed by CG make her out as a nasty personality, ranting, threatening, and usually ALWAYS demanding that people “take care of my messenger, and meet all of her needs” which is totally in conflict with EVERY OTHER APPROVED APPARITION!!! St. Bernadette of Lourdes never received a penny! Neither did the three children of Fatima, nor the young man in Mexico, Juan Diego, who saw Our Lady of Guadalupe! And, characteristic of all of these authentic, approved apparitions, was the obedience to the local bishop. These things are terribly missing in these so-called apparitions and messages of Christina Gallagher. I don’t think the Blessed Mother would be simple and concise at one time in history, and extremely longwinded at another. Also, it should be discussed with theologians and certified clergy, regarding what I see as the SIN OF SIMONY on the part of people who believe that by purchasing a framed image of the Blessed Mother for around $400, that they will have some sort of privileged protection in the event of some threatened catastrophe!! St. Peter would condemn them as he did those who used money to purchase spiritual advantages in the early months after the Resurrection! It is terribly insulting to the Blessed Mother to depict her as someone who threatens and harasses, and also insults. She was NEVER like that ever! She was humble and sweet and compassionate towards the poor–never would she demand they “meet all the needs” of someone else! No authentic apparitions have such outrageous demands to “take care of all of the needs of my messenger!” Repeated over and over!!!

    CG and the unfortunate priest desperately need prayers of deliverance! May St. Michael and his angels come to their rescue and deliver them from all deceptions and abuses of Truth.

  10. A few paragraphs in a newspaper is not sufficient. This indisputable news should be on billboards where it is seen by everyone particularly those who were/are effected by the House of Prayer’s ‘religious’ undue influence.

    Irish Independent

    “the Papal Nuncio has responded to an Irish Independent investigation into the Achill Island ‘House of Prayer’ by urging anyone who feels they have been mistreated by persons involved with the movement to go to the gardai.

    Archbishop Brown cited a 2008 investigation by the Archdiocese of Tuam into the purported visions of Christina Gallagher and miracle healings at the Achill retreat.

    The Nuncio said that investigation had resulted in a formal statement from Archbishop Neary in Tuam in which he instructed that the “celebration of the sacraments and reservation of the Blessed Sacrament at the ‘House of Prayer’ are not permitted”.

    “Any work carried on since then has been entirely of a private nature and has no Church approval whatever,” Archbishop Martin said.”

    It’s time for the truth about the extent of the manipulative cult-like influence that pervades the House of Prayer to be acknowledged and discussed on Irish television.

    Troll, you are full of bullsh*t. I believe Dialogue above the lame argument you give to ‘explain’ your thoughts on the House of Prayer who claim that there are no victims yet numerous family members have spoken out about how she operates and the terrible effects Christina Gallagher has had on their lives. I sincerely hope more come forward and more news articles are printed to inform the public. Thanks to people like Maria Hughes the story will go on and on till something is done about it. Christina Gallagher needs to answer to a court of law and don’t bother telling me there is no evidence. There is plenty enough to go on.

    Has Gallagher influenced you to such a degree that you do not possess a shred of conscience, or care what matters to the elderly in this country? It would not surprise me if you are on the sidelines waiting to cash in.

  12. ‘Austin O’Donnell’ here are a few thoughts to your previous comments to my mothers situation:
    you said ‘CG, meets with a great many thousands of people all the time and I don’t know, but I find it hard keeping up with what my own family are up to, never mind thousands upon thousands of strangers’.
    My mother has been attending HoP for over 10 years so it is very surprising that CG wouldn’t see her there regularly and know her, but I am told CG doesn’t actually regularly/weekly attend the HoP, she leaves it to Fr McG as she is presumably living it up at one of her numerous luxury homes or flying off around Europe visiting her other homes? My mother reveres CG as the ‘chosen one’, talks about her and her messages often, which would lead anyone to believe she knows CG rather well.
    you said ‘If CG gives out messages for distribution it seems to me silly for people, including those who regularly go the house of prayer, to head off and do things on their own bat without asking if it is helpful or wanted.’
    One of CG’s messages was to establish ‘houses of prayer’. My mother is highly influenced by HoP. It is noticeable from the testimony of Katherine and Ted Loughmann that their mother often talked about setting up her own HoP, ‘Ted said local farmers told him that one stage his mother was thinking of building a House of Prayer on her land but nothing came of it.’ To my knowledge, my mother does not know Mary Loughmann, but they are both fanatical followers and both got the same idea from the HoP and CG, so it is incredulous that the HoP website and you are suggest they are ‘misinterpreting’ her messages. It was noted by AB Tuam that CG misinterpreted and misunderstood directives by the Catholic Church, but that was CG’s way of trying to avoid accounting for what happened to all the donations.
    ‘I am sorry to read of the troubles Maria is having within her family and she is obviously carried along by your support. However as you say – Briege ‘misinformed people as to her goal’.’
    My family and I could see the poison that CG posed to our mother long before I knew about the work of Dialogue Ireland or learned about undue influence. But thanks to DI, now I can understand the context of our situation. It is obvious to anyone who knows my mother that she is a different person through her involvement with the HoP, her thought processes are completely corrupted by the HoP, it is all she talks about, our family are broken and dysfunctional over her involvement. My mother’s primary objective is to do ‘Our Lady’s work’, this is supposedly the objective of CG and she is highly influenced by CGs alleged ‘messages’. The house my mother has in Turkey is a fortress, including a cellar for when the alleged ‘chastisement’ comes and is filled with religious artifacts from the HoP among other religious books and icons that she believes will provide her with safety when the ‘purification’ comes; all these ideas came from the HoP, how is this goal different from the alleged aims of HoP? because CG doesn’t directly control it?? smells the same to me.

  13. Dialogue Ireland, your reply has me taken aback!

    To be clear, I have not been enjoying an ongoing discussion with you as you seem to imagine and let me say too, that you seem to have some serious obsession with the use of proxy IP addresses. Is this a control thing I ask myself? Are you perhaps obsessed with the need to know the identity of anyone who posts? Not knowing their identity you assume they are all the one person and they are part of the ‘group you are out to get’. It could be argued so, as you presume anyone who does not have your own viewpoint is either in ‘a cult’ ; is a ‘zombie’ ; is ‘gullible’ ; ‘lacks intelligence’ ; or is in the payroll of the ‘group you are out to get’ , whether you are discussing the house of prayer as here or elsewhere on your blog.

    Anyhow, as you think we have been having this long-term banter I find myself now having to answer to a pile of ‘stuff’ not included in my original post. Lets clear up the proxy IP address thing first. Anyone can access the internet via proxy and in my view it is advisable for all to do this for reasons of privacy and security. I only ever use the web via proxy (like others), the internet is far too intrusive, etc etc… boring…. and so what if I do, my points made here stand up for themselves. Whether they fall on the side of the haters or on the side of the supporters they should be listened to, in the interests of a balanced discussion. Many say on here that you censor the points raised by the supporters (of the ‘group you are out to get’) and so they accuse your ‘dialogue’ as being weighted on the side of the haters (of the ‘group you are out to get’). This is unreasonable, don’t you think?

    Your A. I don’t get your opening point, it clearly reads ‘totally untrue’ and in capitals. That is a straight forward denial that the story has any truth about it.

    Also you seem to lack the ability to quote what I wrote:

    A: Is it totally untrue or only a little bit untrue?

    You failed to note the question mark, and distorted what I wrote. I quoted you as saying Christina claimed she had only met her last month. That is a flagrant lie and you beat about the bush and by raising it again show your perfidy.

    Just read your twisted logic:

    You claim to have someone ‘deeply involved’ giving information. About people who claim they are ‘deeply involved’ I always find this questionable. I mean there are obviously a few complainers who have gone off with their own grouches from the house of prayer, but testaments from these sources are often dubious. Anyway, even if we believe this anonymous ‘deeply involved’ person there is still no proof of their stories.

    The fact is that this person talked to Christina about this and I can confirm the fact that Christina knows Briege very well and has known about her for over 5 years. However, Christina has now treated this person with contempt.Fact 1. Christina claimed to have only met Briege last month. Fact 2. She knew and you knew this to be a lie. You were trying to hide things but were caught with your panties down.

    You say also that she, CG, has to ‘answer to the Irish public’ but this is an odd thing to say as she is not a public servant!

    When an article or programme is produced it is normal practice to seek the opinion of the person being discussed for the sake of balance. You guys refuse to give an interview and exercise your right of reply. After publication you bitch as if there is no tomorrow and claim you were not given the right of reply. Raising the issue of her being a public servant is farce. She owes the public an explanation for her lavish lifestyle as a private citizen and as a Catholic she should be:
    1. Living a life of poverty, simplicity and humility. Instead it is sun tan, luxury flights, hotels, Gucci bags and expensive jewelry.
    The rest is rhetoric. The truth is Christina has known Briege for many years and she has been caught out. Lies damn lies have caught up with her.

Looking at it, the house of prayer puts out rebuttals when the Sunday World and others write something, which you have to admit is the normal run of things.

As far as I can see the people who ‘freely go the the House of Prayer’ have given answers to this and you have ignored them and the Sunday World has ignored them over many years. This leads me to your last comment which is, ‘stop doing what you are doing to the people of Ireland’, which you explain is, ‘treating us with contempt’. It appears to me that to ignore what the people are stating as truth over many years, while continuing to make accusations, is to treat them with contempt. Don’t you see that this is exactly what you (and the news papers involved in this) are doing to the people who ‘freely go to the House of Prayer’?
