Three years ago, Lorna Byrne was described by Anna Coogan of Herald.ie as a "widowed mum-of-four, who says she has been seeing angels since she was a child."
At that time, Byrne had already written The Sunday Times' bestseller Angels In My Hair. Although prior to that, she had "lived a pretty humdrum existence and without much money," this book had brought her a certain amount of fame and fortune. Nevertheless, Byrne had told Coogan, "Money I have earned goes into promoting the book and spreading the word about angels."
Now it is October 2013, and Byrne's angelic pursuits continue to bear much fruit. Her latest book, A Message of Hope from the Angels, is another bestseller. In a 10/8/13 article for Huff Post Religion, Byrne revealed: The angels tell me America is supposed to be a beacon of hope for the world.
Bear in mind that Byrne used the phrase "supposed to be"- as opposed to simply stating that America already is that beacon of hope. She afterwards carefully explained: The blossoming of America to its full potential will come from unifying as one nation. To achieve this you need to seek out and find the things that you have in common, rather than the things that divide you.
This message is much more an individual one than a political one. Byrne further elaborated: Each of you has a role to play in this, you need to start to smile and say hello to people who in the past you have judged to be different… to get to know them properly.
