“I had scarcely put my foot down on the hill when everything changed before my eyes. The rocks disappeared. The hill was suddenly covered with the bones and skulls of all the babies I had aborted over forty years. Look at these hands! (Here, she stretched out her hands before the group). Here are the hands which killed an entire city!” She was crying and in the room, the handkerchiefs came out one after another.”
Valentina, 29, comes from the Ukraine. Upon seeing
her, you’d believe her to be a “normal,” young girl. However! Her story is
far from ordinary! From an atheist background and marked by the hardcore
communism of those regions, she grew up in material poverty and spiritual
Early in life she got a green card to go to the USA but her work did not fill up her life, and a terrible feeling of emptiness overcame her. She asked herself the questions that the
Queen of Peace asked all of us to “Stop for a moment and reflect on
yourselves and on the transience of this your earthly life. Then reflect on eternity
and the eternal beatitude. What do you want? Which way do you want to set out on?”
In the darkness of her soul, she couldn’t help thinking that there was, perhaps,
another dimension to life. So she tried a few tentative words to a celestial Father,
to whom her Ukrainian grandmother used to pray, but who was totally unknown to
her: “If you exist, if you are a father, show me!” Through this prayer she received
peace in her heart! Her faith was born! It began to increase day by day, and
Valentina became a fervent Catholic.
One day she met some pilgrims returning from Medjugorje. Their testimonies
inspired in her a deep desire to go there, and in 2007 she undertook the trip.
There, her heart was so taken by the presence of Our Lady that she felt strongly
moved to make a deal with Her. While praying the rosary at the Statue of the
Risen Christ, she realized her mission was to pray for the youth of the Ukraine
and Divine Providence would open doors to her as well as hearts.
She had committed herself to the mission of helping youth as she prayed by statue of the Risen Christ!
She organized her first pilgrimage in 2008 and all the young people of her parish responded to the call!
Very quickly, she was drawn to the most poor, and God led her into a medical field, where she found enormous moral poverty. The sick were abandoned. Always with the aid of Divine Providence (she herself had no money), she undertook the creation of hospices where the sick at the end of their life could regain their dignity. Mother Teresa of Calcutta inspired her in that endeavor.
She also proposed to some atheist doctors to come with her, and that is how she turned up one day in June of 2011 with 50 pilgrims from a medical corps, all atheists. The doctors who came were professional abortionists!
Among them, a gynecologist in her sixties. Along with the whole group, she climbed
Apparition Hill. Little did she know that Valentina had prepared a contingency plan
inspired by the Gospa for all her pilgrimages: atheist or not, upon arriving at the top,everyone consecrates himself to the Immaculate Heart of Mary!
The gynecologist did this like everyone else. In the evening she gathered her group together, because she wanted to share something very important. Her throat tightened. She had difficulty talking, she, this big shot who oversaw all the services of her hospital…
“I had scarcely put my foot down on the hill”, she said, “when everything changed
before my eyes. The rocks disappeared. The hill was suddenly covered with the
bones and skulls of all the babies I had aborted over forty years. Look at these
hands! (Here, she stretched out her hands before the group). Here are the hands
which killed an entire city!” She was crying and in the room, the handkerchiefs
came out one after another. All the abortionists who were present retreated into
themselves. For the most part, they would leave changed, converted, dedicated to
stopping abortions and to walking with God.
Valentina continues her beautiful mission. As of today, 400 abortionist doctors have
come under her influence. The most recent group of 50 left Medjugorje last August 29.
She doesn’t make them pay, because she doesn’t want any money from innocent
blood to be part of the mix.
