“Dear men of the 20th Century. You have forgotten Me. I will be coming back again to take you away from the darkness and show you the true faith. I come to hug you. I want to put My Heart next to your heart. To transmit My love to all humanity. Do you want to hug Me? You souls are as delicate as a rose petal. Let Me impress in it My love.” (Jesus to Catalina)
The following is quoted from the book, “Reason to Believe”
“The cameras were rolling in the glare of the lights…
“At noon precisely small puncture wounds formed on her forehead (Catalina, also referred to as Katya), one after another, and as we watched they began to bleed. A swelling began on her left cheek and a dark abrasion appeared as if she had been punched in the face. First her palms, then her feet began to show small scratches in the form of a cross. These then slowly ruptured into open wounds which also began to bleed. Katya was in severe pain, struggling to breath, mumbling inchoate prayers and contracting in spasms as the hours passed. By 1:30 pm they were already the size of a large coin, maybe 3 cm in diameter. As the wounds grew larger and more bloody I couldn’t help but think of what it must have been like to see and hear the sound of brutal hammers smashing through the tendons of an innocent man’s hands 2000 years ago; I couldn’t help but imagine the pain of thorns puncturing the fragile skin of a forehead, soaked in sweat, full of dust and spittle. By 3:00 pm I was concerned. Katya was struggling to breathe. She seemed to be dying.”
“With cameras rolling continuously the spontaneous formation of the wounds was indisputable. Katya was not hypnotized or in any kind of trance. She certainly was not pretending or performing. The wounds were not self-inflicted. They were not externally created by the ingenuity of special effects. From their first spontaneous appearances to their issuing blood, I saw it all. So did everyone else in the room. And so did 20 million viewers of prime time television. The footage was broadcast on the Fox Network as a program called “Signs from God” in July 1999 to massive American and Canadian audiences.”

This DVD documents remarkable supernatural events in Bolivia including footage used in the 2-hour, prime-time, FOX TV broadcast, “Signs from God – Science Tests Faith,” on the bleeding statue of Christ that mysteriously weeps and bleeds in Cochabama, Bolivia and in the same city, Catalina Rivas, a theologically uneducated woman, writes in a continuous fashion, profound theological teachings, which she says are dictated to her by Christ.
Catalina Rivas, through a message from Jesus, predicted the exact date two months in advance that the Stigmata was to take place. The Stigmata began on that date as predicted and at noon precisely small puncture wounds formed on her forehead, one after another. This entire event was filmed live by Fox Television in Bolivia, South America. The footage was broadcast to over 20 million viewers on the Fox Network as a program called “Signs From God” in July 1999 to a massive American and Canadian audiences.
This DVD, “A Plea to Humanity” was produced by Australian Lawyer, Ron Tesoriero and shows the stigmata as it took place as the camera rolled continuously. It also contains footage used the following morning that showed the wounds to be healed which left not a trace of the trauma of eighteen hours before. What was witnessed had defied the skeptics, scientists, and atheists. A woman had predicted that something pretty bizarre would happen to her body and exactly when it would happen and it did happen!!!
The DVD has both English and Spanish versions on the same DVD.
A statue weeps and bleeds in the same city that Catalina Rivas writes profound teachings she says are dictated by Christ. Elsewhere, a communion host (bread) changes to living flesh. Are these claims true? What does Science have to say? This is a fascinating journey of Australian lawyer, Ron Tesoriero, in pursuit of answers. On the way he invites a well-known and highly respected journalist Mike Willesee to join him. What they discover will confront the mind and heart of every reader.
The book also covers many other miraculous events such as details on the Eucharistic miracle of Lanciano, Italy, the bloodstained cloth of the Orvieto miracle in Italy, the story about the tilma of Our Lady of Guadalupe in Mexico and includes the report by two researchers who also worked for NASA that studied the tilma and found the color made of an unknown “semi-transparent” pigment. A Nobel prizewinner in Chemistry examined the coloring of two of the fibers from the image and basically said the chemical source of the coloring did not exist on earth.
The story of the Sudarium of our Lord is examined. The Sudarium is the blood stained linen cloth mentioned in the Gospel of St. John as the second linen, “the cloth that has been over his head.” This linen, St. John found rolled up in a corner of the tomb. Finally, the book covers the Shroud of Turin and how science and technology hope to be able to compare the DNA of the blood from the Eucharistic miracle and bleeding statue to the shroud.
