John of God
João Teixeira de Faria, commonly known as John of God, was born on June 24, 1942 in the State of Goiás in central Brazil. He was raised Catholic, knew a life of poverty and hunger, and only went to school for 2 years. He cannot read or write. His father trained him as a tailor in order to help support the family at a very young age.
At the age of 9, St. Rita of Cascia appeared to João and instructed him to go to a church in a nearby town. Upon arrival at the church, he incorporated the highly evolved spirit of King Solomon and healed many, though had no memory.
John of God is a full “unconscious” trance medium whose abilities have been documented by scientists and medical doctors. He lives with his wife Ana and has never charged for his healing work. He has dedicated his life to his mission as a medium to serve God and help humanity. He has never taken credit for any of the healings. He is the vessel through which God and highly evolved spirits work.
"I do not heal. It is God and the good spirits that work through me." -- John of God
Casa de Dom Inacio
The Casa de Dom Inacio (House of St Ignatius) is a spiritual hospital center where over 9 million people from all over the world have travelled for healing of physical, mental, emotional and spiritual issues. The land on which the Casa is located is a powerful vortex of energy and a portal between the material and spiritual realms.
John of God and the Casa help humanity through God's love and power. The triangle, the symbol of the Casa, represents the Trinity and stands for Faith, Love and Charity. All spiritual work at the Casa is overseen by God.
Healing Spirits of the Casa
There are many thousands of Healing Spirits of Light that work at the Casa de Dom Inacio. These spirits are referred to as "The Entities" by those at the Casa. The word for "spirit" is the same as the word for "entity" in portuguese. The Entities of the Casa are highly evolved spirits who are very familiar with emotional, mental, physical and spiritual disease and their mission is to help humanity through the work of John of God. Only one of these Entities can incorporate in the physical body of John of God at any given time, but there are many others that are giving their time and energy to the work during a Casa session and beyond.
The patron of the Casa is St Ignatius of Loyola (aka Dom Inacio) who founded the Society of Jesus (also known as the Jesuits). St Francis Xavier assisted in expanding the Jesuits in Asia. The four primary spirit doctors that incorporate in John of God are Dr. Augusto de Almeida, Dr. Oswaldo Cruz, Dr. Jose Valdevino and Dr. Jose Pentiado. There are a total of 46 spirit entities that have incorporated in John of God during a session. It is not unusual for several Entities to show up during a single session, switching in and out without being noticeable.
