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.
