In responding to our role and the continuation of His mission here on earth we encourage people to live with a heightened awareness of the living indwelling presence of Jesus in their daily lives. We accomplish this work through publishing the works of Cora Evans and others, by giving talks and parish retreats, and by promoting her cause for sainthood.
When we receive the Eucharist we are changed, transformed. Normally, when we ingest something we assimilate it and it becomes part of our substance. With the Eucharist it is just the opposite. Jesus transforms us, assimilates us and makes us one with Him. The Mystical Humanity of Christ is rooted in Scripture and Tradition.
The prayer we teach draws people to the Eucharist. It is a daily spiritual communion, and invitation and a reminder of Jesus’ presence in our life: “Lord, I invite you to live your resurrected life through me today.” This is the Mystical Humanity of Christ – the Divine Indwelling. The prayer is an invitation. In this way you take Jesus with you wherever you go.
Cora Evans was born July 9, 1904, and she passed away March 30, 1957. Her first mystical experience, an apparition of the Blessed Mother, took place when she was three years old.
It was an event she could not fully comprehend and would never forget. Many years would pass before she understood the vision and the message. Cora was raised a Mormon and was married
to Maclellan Evans in the well-known Mormon Temple in Salt Lake City, Utah. That event was the turning point in her life.
In July 1938, she had a profound mystical experience. Cora wrote about this event in the autobiography of her mystical life, titled "Captain of the Ship." During this deep ecstasy Cora
made the choice to serve God for the rest of her life. She described the state of her soul as being intimately united to God, and referred to this as her vow day: "It was necessary for
me to live my chosen vocation with Him as my companion. By loaning Jesus my humanity for Him to govern as well as dwell within, would make my life a living prayer for He was life, living
life within me, and my body now dead to me was His living cross, His cross to take to Calvary, Calvary, the door to eternal life."
Servant of God Cora Evans claimed to receive detailed private revelations from Christ. Her cause is currently being promoted for beatification. Learn more about her and about her writings from Michael McDevitt in his interview with Al Kresta, president of Ave Maria Communications..

Ever wonder why Jesus said, “I come to cast a fire on the earth”? His next words—“how I wish it were ignited”—suggest a certain impatience. For over 50 years, Jesuit priest, Fr. Frank, preached on the syndicated “Catholic Quarter Hour” radio program. He selected his favorite talks to be published in this book, Sparks from His Heart.
