The Process of Receiving the Messages
Ned Dougherty states that he has been receiving interior-locutions from Jesus, Mary, and St. Michael the Archangel since August 1, 2005. He usually receives interior information several days before the monthly messages instructing him as to the geographic location where he will be receiving the message(s).
On the morning of the 1st of the month or occasionally on the 2nd day of the month, he awakens with an interior knowledge as to the time that he will receive the message(s).
Upon presenting himself at the time and place designated, he prays and meditates while having his laptop computer ready to transcribe the interior locutions.
