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 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 was beginning to hear voices that urged him to drink and fight. Confused, and mindful of being labelled 'mad' if he openly complained, Alan kept this to himself. The pressure eventually got to him and he found himself joining bad company and picking up his old habits of drinking and fighting.
Some months went by and Alan was now beginning to have nightmares that kept him awake at night. Kathryn was very concerned with his behaviour and suggested he see a priest. However, not having been a regular church goer, 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. 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 and the Apostles Andrew and Matthew. They taught him how to pray and explained the Scriptures.
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 endeavoured, with encouragement, to lead a life of prayer. He was now attending Mass daily and reciting the rosary up to nine times a day.
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 recognised to be that of Jesus.
A message received by Alan from God the Father 19-12-94.
"Playing in love, playing in joy, playing in Jesus, is what your soul does each time you pray. When your words of love and praise are received in Heaven they are returned in happiness, a happiness for your soul. What a gift I give to all of those who pray; they do not understand what they truly receive. They receive My love, My light, Me. They receive fullness of life, they receive true glory. They receive all of My graces, they receive all of My love, they receive Me through My Son Jesus and through My Holy Spirit. What a gift is prayer, what a possession to be sought, what a joy, what a love!"
A message from Our Lord Jesus 21-1-95.
"Love is a two way street. I bring you My love and you bring Me your love and when our love meets it is a joining together to become one in Me."
One day Our Lady appeared before a golden cross and asked that She be known as the "Queen of the Cross". The vision has been painted and appears on the inside front cover of the book "Messages to Carver Alan Ames" and on the back cover of "Through the Eyes of Jesus" Volume 1.
A message from our Blessed Mother 16-1-95.
"Nailed on the cross was my Son Jesus, pain filled His body and soul. As I watched an agony within burned so deep I could not stand. On my knees I prayed and prayed, on my knees I wept for my Son's agony to end and on my knees I saw the glory of God. I saw how much God loves His children, how much He was prepared to give to save them and how much He needed to forgive them. Nailed to the cross with my Son was my love, not as an equal but as a hand maiden wanting to serve her Lord and her God. In the service of Jesus was I as I watched His supreme act of love, a service I long all to share with me so they can find the rewards that await them in Heaven, the rewards of God."
It is not known why Alan has been chosen, nor what is in store for him, however, given the story of his conversion it is quite clear that God's Love & Mercy are available to all, no matter how far one has strayed. Like Alan and so many before him have done, all one needs to do is to respond with a firm. YES!
