House Blessing and Death and Funeral for Martina Jagdman
Wednesday March 10, 2021
Recently I have been experiencing clear vivid and likely demonic dreams and as a result I have been having the feeling of being attacked. At times I actually feel as if I am in danger. When this happens I call on Our Lady with a Hail Mary and a St. Michael prayer and I instantly feel protected and the uncomfortable clammy feeling that accompanies these dark feelings of danger disappears. These dark feelings of threat actually felt very strong ever since I described the events that happened in association with a paper I wrote about the song Stairway to Heaven by Led Zeppelin recently. These demonic threats and dreams were especially strong and vivid in my early days at the St. Joseph’s prayer group in Emmitsburg and I did document them in previous papers about 20 years ago. Recently I have been experiencing dark shadows flying overhead and casting a shadow on the ground around me. I look up and there is nothing at all that could have physically caused it. I had just finished a mortgage closing in Locust Grove this evening and was headed back to <Home Town> and these things were running through my mind. I knew Fr. K. was hearing confessions at <Home Parish> on Wednesday evenings and I thought about stopping and asking him to bless our house. At the instant that thought crashed through my mind an oncoming car approached with the license plate of 33.
The timing of that sudden thought and that car with the 33 license plate was so perfect I stopped on my way home at <Home Parish> and confessions were in progress. I told <Parish Priest> about these experiences. I asked him if it would be possible for him to come to our house and bless it. He said yes and suggested that we do it next week. That was fine with me. I drove home and I felt attacked again in a very strong way. Despite every word of what I told <Parish Priest> being true I felt uneasy and could only imagine what he must be thinking. It was causing an anxiety feeling within me that was overpowering so I just stopped whatever I was doing, picked up my rosary with no regard for the time and glanced at my watch as I began the Sorrowful mysteries because that’s how I felt and the time was 10:13.
A TREMENDOUS feeling of peace and reassurance came over me instantly. I also prayed the Sorrowful, Glorious and Luminous mysteries and when I finished I was in no mood to stop. I continued with an extra Glorious mysteries and then glanced at my watch as I finished for the first time since I began the rosary and the time was 11:33.
Violent Fall in Conjunction With What I Believe Was an Attack
Friday March 12, 2021
Today is another one of those days where I just don’t exactly know how to put it into words but there is something that does not feel exactly right and I can’t put my finger on it. I have a 10 AM closing here in <Home Town> and that works out fine because today’s mass is at 12 noon because of Covid restrictions at Epiphany School. I did my 10 AM closing and that seemed to go fine despite having somewhat uncomfortable feelings that I had but could not pinpoint. There was a feeling of uneasiness in me for some reason. I finished the closing and as I walked out of the front door to leave I tripped on a step and crashed to the ground with tremendous force. I landed on concrete but was not badly injured except for a pair of very badly scraped knees. I actually had to pluck pants fabric out of my right knee. I went home and put a bandage on and changed my clothes and went to the 12 noon mass at <Home Parish> and mass ended at 12:33.
I Was Almost Involved In a Car Crash That Would Likely Have Been Fatal and My Friend Martina Jagdman Died
Saturday March 20, 2021
There is no mass in <Home Town> or Madison on Saturday’s. That’s fair because both parishes only have one priest. St. John The Evangelist in Warrenton has two and they do have a Saturday daily mass. I have been attending that mass each week for a good while now. While driving to Warrenton I was on Rt. 229 heading north. There is an intersection at Rt. 229 and Rt. 621 with a blinking light. Everything looked fine when suddenly a car blows through the stop sign on Rt. 621 having never slowed down in the slightest. I slammed on the brakes and everything on the seats ended up in the floor boards. What I do not understand is the fact my car never went into a skid despite hitting the break as hard as I could. Suddenly my car swerved and I was waiting for a high speed T bone impact into the woman’s driver side door. The 60 MPH impact never happened and other than the Grace of God and His Mother I don’t know how. There was no visual space between her car and mine. Again, I believe this was another attack. Just as Our Lady said in her message given to my family, in our living room on May 13, 2006 stating that She and the angels are protecting us. I feel this is a perfect example. In that message to our family our Lady said:
Private Message from Our Lady of Emmitsburg
through Gianna Sullivan
May 13, 2006
The Feast of Our Lady of Fatima
The Vigil of Mother’s Day
Little children, praised be Jesus!
Little ones, thank you for your prayers. You are so good. I desire you to know how pleased I am, how gracious you are, and how much you are loved. You have housed me well and given me all of your hearts so I can intercede for you and protect you. You make me so happy. With all the elements and different distractions in your lives, you always seem to come back to the true source of nourishment, that being my Son. For this I am grateful and happy.
With all the angels I protect you, and I thank you for being true ambassadors of Light. May God bless you abundantly with good health, prosperity, wisdom and knowledge. May the holy wisdom of speech be yours so that you may be able to speak words of Love and even to chastise and challenge in a format most pleasing to God and centered on Love.
Thank you, thank you for loving my Son; and most importantly, as a Mother at this special time, thank you for being “mothers” and allowing me to be yours.
Believe me I saw up close and personal this protection that Our Lady mentioned. I continued driving and for the rest of the trip I almost felt dazed and don’t remember any more of the drive until I arrived at St. Johns and parked. At that point the reality of how close I just came to SUDDEN DEATH struck me. But what pleased and gave me peace is that I realized that even the threat of SUDDEN DEATH would NOT cause me to recant ANY of the papers I have written about the apparitions of Our Lady at St. Joseph’s. I can go to my grave gradually or SUDDENLY in peace knowing every word is true and accurate and I will never take any of it back. I thanked God that I was alive to attend another mass. It was then I looked up and noticed the time on the dash was 8:13.
I then walked in the church and prayed. A few minutes later I felt my phone vibrate. I received a text from Bill Jagdman telling me his mother, Martina Jagdman died.this morning. Marti is my late metal detecting friend Jerry Jagdman’s mother. Fr. Henry Rivera was doing Benediction and he lifted and blessed the people with the monstrance and I glanced at my watch and the time was 8:33:00. It was at that time I prayed for Marti Jagdman and thought about all the times I took the Eucharist to her as a Eucharistic Minister at her home when she became too sick go to mass and then I felt compelled to glance at my watch and the time was 8:33:13.
Martina Jagdmans Viewing
Thursday March 25, 2021
I tried to go metal detecting in Orange this afternoon. I arrived and felt very tired. I sat in the car and dozed off for a little while. I awoke and it started to rain. I picked up my iPhone to check my email as I waited for the rain to stop. The mail I received was today’s message from Our Lady of Medjugorje and the time on my phone was 4:13.
“Dear children! Also today I am with you to tell you: Little children, who prays does not fear the future and does not lose hope. You are chosen to carry joy and peace, because you are mine. I have come here with the name ‘Queen of Peace’ because the devil wants peacelessness and war, he wants to fill your heart with fear of the future - but the future is God’s. That is why, be humble and pray, and surrender everything into the hands of the Most High Who created you. Thank you for having responded to my call.”
By now it was raining even harder but I still waited a while to see if it would stop. While I was sitting there in the car I had a very suddenly thought about Marti Jagdman’s viewing tonight at Founds Funeral Home. I glanced at my watch and the time was 4:33:13.
I drove home and later S.C.C. and I got ready to go to Marti’s viewing. We drove to Founds and arrived at 6:33. There were only a few people there and after a short visit S.C.C. and I drove home. I then drove to <Home Parish> for Adoration and to pray a rosary for Marti. Deacon Michael Watts did benediction and when that was over I drove home and pulled in my driveway at 9:13.
Our House Blessing & Martina Jagdman’s Funeral
Friday March 26, 2021
Today is a very busy day for me. I have 2 mortgage closings. The first here in <Home Town> and the second one this evening near Front Royal. I also have Martina Jagdman’s funeral and our house blessing. I attended mass at <Home Parish> this morning and when mass ended I confirmed with <Parish Priest> that he would be coming to bless our house this morning. <Parish Priest> said he would come over after Office of Readings/Morning Prayer.
After morning prayer I drove home and within a few minutes <Parish Priest> arrived. We talked for a few minutes then he proceeded to bless our entire house from room to room with a book of blessings and holy water.
After the house blessing was completed <Parish Priest> and I stood in the doorway between the dining room and kitchen and talked for a good while. We talked about Martina Jagdman’s funeral. We talked about my very close call this past Saturday nearly having a high speed auto crash. <Parish Priest> mentioned some personal things in his life. I mention these things to stress the fact that there was no regard for the time except that both of us had to be at Founds Funeral home at 11 AM for Marti Jagdman’s funeral. <Parish Priest> then said he had to leave and would see me at the funeral home. He walked out of the door and I glanced at my watch and the time was 10:13. This left me stunned and I said out loud “Thank You God” I suddenly felt a feeling of peace run through me that left me numb. I glanced at my watch and the time was 10:13:33.
I then drove to Founds Funeral home and sat in the back row. A little while later <Parish Priest> arrived and did a wonderful job. After the funeral home service was complete we had a police escort to <Home Town> National Cemetary. We arrived and shortly later one of the funeral directors asked for the pall bearers to come forward. I was a pall bearer and we lifted Marti’s casket out of the hearse and placed it on a stone table under the pavilion. I could not help but notice the time was 12:13. <Parish Priest> began speaking and blessing the casket with holy water and the time was still 12:13.
When the funeral was completed everyone left and I went and did my closing in <Home Town>. I then stopped by <Home Parish> and prayed the entire rosary Joyful, Sorrowful, Glorious and Luminous mysteries I then prayed an extra Glorious mysteries for Marti and the events of today and glanced at my watch as I finished and kissed the crucifix and the time was 3:33:13.
Later in the evening I drove to Linden which is near Front Royal and completed my 2nd closing. On the way home from that closing I stopped at St. John the Baptist in Front Royal because they have daily adoration and prayed the Joyful and Sorrowful mysteries for Marti and glanced at my watch as I finished and the time was 7:33.
