Skip to comments.The Testimony of Gloria Polo
Posted on 11/27/2009 7:38:52 AM PST by JosephJames
Gloria Polo died after being terribly burned by a lightning bolt on May 5, 1995 in Bogotá, Colombia; she was judged, and then came back to life.
There is already translated into English a short testimony that Gloria Polo gave to Radio Maria in Colombia. The following testimony, instead, was given on May 5, 2005 in Caracas, Venezuela. It is much more complete and so one is able to enter into and to understand better this special experience of Gloria Polo, which I believe is a true gift from God for so many people today who, like Gloria Polo before her unpleasant incident, have fallen into the fundamental trap of Satan to believe they are good and holy, according to their freely embraced illusion and criteria from themselves, the world or Satan, but not according to the TRUTH.
It is so much more convenient to see ourselves in our own constructed, subjective mirror rather than seeing ourselves in the mirror of God who created us and has imprinted the truth in our very being! At death we will see our whole life and how we sought and lived the truth or how we accepted and freely embraced so many convenient illusions offered to us by the world or the devil or by ourselves.
I believe that this testimony is a real gift from God that will help many people of good will, who are not afraid to confront themselves with the truth, to convert themselves to the Truth and begin to live a new and fulfilling life with Jesus Christ. For us Catholics it will help us to make a good examination of conscience and then a good sacramental confession.

Maybe it’s just me — but it would be nice to get to the point. I scanned through several pages of ‘the testimony is coming’ but never saw the testimony. Editing helps.
I’ll cut to the chase — she’s a Thor worshipper now.
This is an Excerpt. If you want to see or read or even download the whole testimony, click on the title in red above the exerpt: “The Testimony of Gloria Polo”, or click below the excerpt on: “Read more at testimony-polo.blogspot.com ...”
Not just you. I’ve tried clicking various links and about all I get is a pop up about getting a green card.
Nope, not gonna do it. It’s up to you to pick your point and put forth the pertinent information. If you can’t provide a synopsis of a couple three sentences, it isn’t worth reading from the EXCERPT you posted.
Where’s the testimony ???
Short excerpt of that would be nice...
and paragraphs might attract more people to this thread...
Oh, right, she worships Thor? because of the lightning? Hello ....? I did go to the main page, btw, but still found no central point.
I’m over it, however.
"Wheres the testimony ??? Short excerpt of that would be nice..."
I tried copy/paste from the doc - two excerpts:
Very well: - he said to me and you did this? Did you love?
Totally confused, I replied: I yes! Yes, I yes. Yes!
But that wonderful Voice said: No!!!
I assure you that when he said to me: No!, then it was that I felt the strike of the lightning bolt! In fact, I still did not feel on which side it had struck me But when I heard that No!, I felt all the pain of the lightning bolt!... I felt naked, all my masks fell, and I remained uncovered.
That soft Voice continued to say to me: No!!! You did not love your Lord above all things, and even less did you love your neighbor as yourself! You made of yourself a God that you modeled on yourself, on your life! Only in moments of extreme necessity, or in suffering, you remembered your Lord. And then yes, you knelt down, you cried, you asked, you offered novenas, you proposed to yourself to go to Mass, to prayer groups, asking for some graces or a miracle When you were poor, when your family was humble, when you still desired to become a professional, then yes, everyday you used to pray on your knees, whole hours, beseeching your Lord! You would pray, asking me to pull you out of that poverty, that I might permit you to become a professional and to be someone! When you found yourself in need and you needed money, then yes, you promised: I pray the Rosary, but You, Lord, grant me a little money!
This was the relationship that you used to have with your Lord! Never, did you keep one promise made, not even one! And beyond not keeping the promises, you never thanked me! And the Lord insisted on this: You gave your word, you made a promise to your Lord, but you never kept them!
The Lord showed me one of my many prayers: when I asked Him the grace to have my first car, I would pray, and very humbly I would ask that please, he might grant also only a little car, even an old one, it is not important just so it works. But as soon as I obtained what I desired, I did not even say a thanks to the Lord; and eight days later, not only did I not thank Him, but already I denied Him and I spoke bad about Him. He showed me how, in all the graces that He granted me, not only was I lacking in regards to the made promises, but I did not even give thanks. I saw the Lord in a truly sad way. You know, my relationship with God was like a BANK CASH DISPENSER : I put in a Rosary, and He was supposed to give me money and if he did not give it to me, I rebelled. The Lord showed me all of this. Just as soon as he permitted me to have my profession, - and in consequence, to begin to have a certain prestige and also money - , the name of God was already not comfortable to me I began to feel I was great, without ever having for Him the least expression of love, or gratitude. To be grateful? Never! Not even a thank you ‟ for the new day that he gave me, or for my health, or for having a roof where I lived... Or even a prayer of compassion for those poor little ones who do not have a house, nor something to eat. Nothing!!! Ungrateful to the max! More than anything else, I became more incredulous in regards to my Lord, while I believed in Venus and Mercury for fortune, I went blindly after astrology, saying that the stars direct our life. I began to believe in all the doctrines that the world offered me. I believed, for example, in reincarnation: I convinced myself, simply, one would die and would re-begin from the top and I forgot it cost a price of Blood to my Lord Jesus.
When the Lord made me return, my kidneys did not function, nor did they do for me the dialysis because it was not worth the effort, from the moment that I was about to die But suddenly, they began to function; the same for the lungs, and also the heart began to beat strongly. You can imagine the astonishment of the doctors! By then I did not need the machines!
I began my physical recovery, but I did not feel anything alive below, and after a month the doctors said to me: Gloria, God is doing a miracle with you, because your skin has grown back over all the wounds But as for your legs we cannot do anything. We must amputate them! When they said this to me, I, who was a sportswoman, I remembered: 4 hours of daily acrobatics, for what? I thought only of fleeing from there, but I did not succeed, because the legs did not hold me up, and I fell. I was hospitalized on the 5 th floor, and they took me to the 7 th floor to stay there until the surgery; I found there a lady who had her legs already amputated, but they had to amputate them again, higher up. Seeing her, I thought that not even all the money in the world was sufficient to buy those wonderful things which are the legs. When they told me that they would amputate them, I felt a great sadness! Never had I thanked God for my legs, on the contrary: with the tendency that I had to get fat, I suffered hunger as a fool and I spent fortunes to be elegant And now, I see my black legs, burned, without flesh, but for the first time I thank God to have them yet. Lord, I thank you for my legs, and I ask you for the grace to leave them for me, so that I might be able to walk. I beg you, Lord, leave to me the legs! And I immediately began to feel them: they were very black, without circulation, and from Friday to Monday, when they arrived, the doctors were surprised, because they were red and the circulation was back in place! Astonished, they touched me and they did not want to believe. I said to them: Doctors, my legs hurt terribly, but I believe that there is no one in the world, so happy to feel pain in the legs, as I am in this moment! The doctor on the 7 th floor replied to me that never, in 38 years of service, had he seen anything similar.
The other two miracles that the Lord did for me, was the breasts and the ovaries. The doctor had said that I could no longer have babies. I was happy, because I thought that God had given me a natural method to not get pregnant. But, one and a half years later, I see that my breasts began to grow, to expand and to be reformed. I was amazed, and when I went to the doctor, he said to me that I was expecting a baby! And with these breasts I nursed my daughter!!!...
To God nothing is impossible!
May the Lord bless everyone, immensely. Glory to God and glory to Our Lord Jesus Christ. May God bless you! I present to you my daughter. This child is a miracle! She is the daughter that God gave me, with the burned ovaries! That which for the doctors was totally impossible! But for God, nothing is impossible!!! Here she is, her name is Maria José!...

Gloria Polo actually lives in Colombia, and continues to exercise her profession. She was left with enormous scares, but she leads a normal life, and now she is a woman of great faith! She travels much; she transmits her testimony to thousands of people, and fulfills the mission that God had confided to her. (She has the authorization of the Church to do so). This is a translation from the Italian translation of this testimony. The Italian translation is a translation of a CD (in Spanish), in which is engraved the testimony that she gave in a church in Caracas (Venezuela), May 5, 2005. - 81 - - - - - - - - For further information and in various languages visit:

Many Christians come to church to feel good and holy, to satisfy themselves, but not to satisfy the ONE who gave them everything they have! Regarding priests and religious, Sister Mary Gabriel in purgatory told Sister Mary of the Cross on December 8, 1879: Alas, how many lives seem to be filled with good works and at the death are found empty. This is because all those actions that appeared to be good, all those showy works, all that conduct that seemed irreproachable - all these were not done for Jesus alone. Some will have their eyes opened when they come here to this life (in Purgatory). On earth they wanted to be made much of, to shine, to be thought very exact in religious observances, to be esteemed as perfect religious. This is the mainspring of so many lives. If you only knew how few people work for God and act for Him alone. Alas, at death, when they are no longer blinded, what regrets they will have. If only sometimes they would think of eternity. What is life compared to that day which will have no evening for the elect, or to that night which will have no dawning for the damned? On earth, people attach themselves to everything and everyone except to Him, who alone ought to have our love and to whom we refuse it. Jesus in the Tabernacle waits for souls to love Him and He finds none. Hardly one soul in a thousand loves Him as it should. You love Him and make up to Him for this guilty indifference which exists all over this world.
Open Letter To a Fellow Priest
And what an examination of conscience..
There are not enough euphemisms - jaw dropping; eye opening; breath taking; life altering ... the list is endless. If one had any doubts, the Examination of Conscience, based on the Ten Commandments, dispelled it.
