She calls Him her “Great Lover”. He tells her to “call Me Daddy”. At any hour of the day or night Himself is likely to drop into the life of Vassula Ryden for a bit of a chinwag.

All of which means that, in what amounts to the metaphysical journalistic coup of the century, our Liam Fay gets an exclusive interview with The Holy Spirit.
Vassula Ryden is the most wretched human being on the planet. She is a contemptible evildoer, an inveterate sinner. A sheep so black she leaves a soot trail. This is not a matter of opinion or conjecture. It is the gospel according to the Lord Jesus Christ.
“I asked God why he had chosen me as the channel of his message,” she declares. “He said, ‘Because you are wretched. In your wretchedness, I can show my mercy’. Though there are many wretched people in the world, He told me I was the most wretched. What wretched means in God’s eyes, I don’t know exactly but I don’t think it was a compliment.
“God is attracted by wretchedness. Jesus runs after the people who are wretched. He runs after the sick, the weak, the wicked. To someone who is doing alright, He will say, ‘You’re doing fine, let Me go and get this one who is about to fall’.”
