I Feel a Sense of Prayer Urgency Like I Have Never Felt Before
July 14,17 & 22, 2020
It is not very often that I write a paper that does not include a trip to Emmitsburg as the focal point of the paper. The unexpected events of July 14 and 17 were so impactful to me and so unexpected that I knew a paper needed to be written. I am going to backtrack a little and say something that I am not sure if I ever mentioned in these papers or not. I have said many times that what began happening to me with the 13’s, 33’s and 333’s among other things began at St. Josephs in Emmitsburg during the apparitions of The Virgin Mary to Gianna Sullivan during the Thursday Night Prayer Group. What I am not sure if I ever mentioned or not is this: In prayer I said to God, God why is this happening to me? I do not understand this at all. I was comforted by the fact that Sr. Claire Mahoney had given me Fr. Stefano Gobbi’s book, “To The Priest Our Lady’s Beloved Sons” and on page 610 explained the significance of 333. This continued and became more frequent as time went on. At one point I think I began to doubt and I prayed before the Blessed Sacrament and this is what I prayed to God. I said “God if what is happening to me is from You and Your Blessed Mother then I want to continue. I have no problem with it whatsoever and I thank you. HOWEVER if it is not from You then I am counting on You to put a stop to whoever or whatever is causing it. I would make this prayer before the Blessed Sacrament in many different churches not just St. Joseph’s. I would make this prayer at <Home Parish> in <Home Town>, OLBR in the next town and any other Catholic Church I came upon having Eucharistic Adoration. The result of this prayer was nothing less than astounding to me. I am now going to describe exactly how the response of my prayer has been delivered to me ever since making my prayer to God The Father, God The Son and God The Holy Spirit regarding what began at St. Joseph’s in Emmitsburg during the apparitions.

I started today by attending mass at <Home Parish> in <Home Town>. After mass I rode home and sat outside and prayed the Joyful mysteries of the rosary. After that I had to do a closing here in <Home Town>. I completed the closing and then I drove to the Eagle Post FedEx location in <Home Town> to drop off the closing package. I had time before my next closing in Front Royal at 5 PM so I drove to <Home Parish> to pray another rosary. I arrived and glanced at my watch as I began the Sorrowful mysteries and the time was 12:13. I glanced at my watch again as I finished and the time was 12:33:59.
I drove home and did a few things around the house and then I left to drive to Front Royal for another closing at 5 PM. I left early because I thought I would stop at St. John The Baptist and complete my rosary for the day. I arrived at St. John The Baptist with absolutely no regard for the time whatsoever. The main church was closed but the old church which is now an adoration chapel was open. I walked in the adoration chapel and I was suddenly struck with a strong feeling of peace. I was completely stunned to find myself standing before the exposed Blessed Sacrament and I glanced at my watch and the time was 3:33:33. I completed the rosary I started earlier in the day by praying the Glorious and Luminous mysteries. I finished and suddenly felt like I wanted to pray an extra Luminous mysteries for my son C.R.C.. This caused me to glance at my watch and the time was 4:13:00. I finished the rosary and glanced at my watch as I kissed the crucifix and the time was 4:33:33.
I write this to show what began at St. Josephs during the apparitions continues and reaches far beyond Emmitsburg.

It’s only been a couple of days but the almost same thing repeated itself and happened in almost the same way. This makes me feel a sense of urgency and that prayer is the only help. Anyway I had 3 closings today and was busy the entire day. This caused me to miss mass today. After the first closing I was driving home and on the way stopped at OLBR. I arrived and the odometer was 1.3. I prayed the Joyful Mysteries for C.R.C. and Fr. K____ 's private petition. I finished and glanced at my watch and the time was 9:33:33.
Later in the evening I did my last closing in Keswick. It was a longer drive than I thought. And when I finished the closing I started driving home. This time I had to ride by St. Isadore The Farmer on my way home. While driving I had a sudden out of nowhere thought that I should stop at St. Isadore. It was late and I did not even think the church would be open. I did stop and I arrived and was stunned to find the church open and Eucharistic Adoration in progress. I looked at my watch and the time was 7:33. I completed my rosary by praying the Sorrowful and Glorious and never looked at my watch until I finished and the time was 8:33. I then left and as I was pulling out my odometer switched to 33013. I drove home and pulled in my driveway and the time on the dash was 9:13.
(I finished up to this point July 20 @ 3:33 pm before deciding to add the events of July 22.
Wednesday July 22, 2020
I started the day by attending daily mass at <Home Parish>. Fr. K____ was the celebrant. I knelt down in my pew and glanced at my watch and the time was 8:33:13. Mass ran a little longer than usual today because a woman named Jennifer received the sacrament of Confirmation. Mass ended and I glanced at my watch and the time was 9:13:33.
I drove home and just took care of some of the things I needed to do. A little later I drove into town to pay a bill at the bank. While I was sitting in the drive through line I thought that I might as well drive to the parish in the next town for Eucharistic Adoration since I was already out and about. I drove to OLBR in the next town and took my seat before the Blessed Sacrament. I prayed the Joyful Mysteries and I was somewhere in the middle of the Sorrowful mysteries when Fr. J.B. came in warning me and two ladies who were there about violent storms headed our way with 60 mph winds. The two women left to go home leaving me the only person in the church with Jesus because Fr. J had gone back to the rectory. I was not going to leave because no one else was there. By the time I was nearing the end of the Luminous mysteries Fr. J. came back in saying he was ending adoration for the day because of bad weather. He went around locking up the church while I finished the last few prayers of my rosary. I finished and glanced at my watch and the time was 2:33:13.
