Once I was Blind, but Now I See

This book is one to read yourself and then pass on to others struggling with their faith. The miracles that God has worked in the life of Charles Piccirilli are breathtaking, and leave the reader unable to put the book down.

Even after a period of time dabbling in the occult, and running from God – Charles hears God’s voice – and he has not stopped hearing his voice since. Many years of healings and miracles later…he tells all!

God truly has blessed Charles Piccirilli with a great gift of faith, and Charles has shared that gift abundantly.

I am so thankful to have worked on writing this book with Charles, and bringing it to life. Charles had a great role in my conversion, when I showed up with pink hair and black eyeliner, to challenge him to a truth duel.

I have since come to refer to him affectionately as “my personal Padre Pio,” and after reading his journey with God, I believe you will know why. This is Charles’ story – it tells how our Lord speaks to an ordinary man – a sinner just like you and me – and through him, does wondrous things.

Testimonial

Charles Piccirilli

For over 40 years I have experienced a very special gift from God. The gift of hearing his voice personally, seeing him fulfill the things that he said he would, and knowing how much Jesus loves me.

It didn’t start that way though…at one point my life was filled with darkness. Without hope or the promise of a future or eternity, I embraced the idea that my life was totally dependent on my own strength and wisdom. Doors that should never be opened were opened, as I embraced the occult and its many wayward teachings. The ferris wheel of darkness and selfishness began spinning faster and faster, as I continued hoping that one day the emptiness inside would be filled. Somehow there was a glimmer of some deep fulfilling love out there, but all I could find was increasing darkness.

I grasped for and pursued that small glimmer of hope with all that was within me. Then, slowly something began happening to me. Something so deep and real overcame me, and my blindness was replaced with a new vision -the perfect vision of love found in Jesus Christ. W

hen I finally yielded to him, I discovered the secret to knowing who I truly was. I began to see him working in everything – all my daily activities. He began to show me what he was doing in my life and the lives of those around me. I saw many people healed, impossible cases resolved, and unexplainable miracles occur.

The Lord is now calling me to share these same mysteries with you! It is my fervent hope that as you read these stories, you too will be convicted, convinced, and converted to the truth in Jesus Christ.

Testimonials

Tom Wiegand (Former President of the Catholic Men’s Fellowship)

To ask, to wait, to listen, to hear, to act so trustingly knowing it is God directing you is miraculous in itself.

If I were to sum up this remarkable Holy Spirit-filled wondrous book you wrote, the words would come from your five words hidden deep in your book: “Love is always the aim!” Thank you, thank you, thank you Charles!”
