the Holy Name of Jesus

“...How blessed His Name! All peoples in all nations can see the Face of God and adore Him. Strive to be meek and humble of heart, and then you shall meet Jesus in the faces of your peers and many other peoples of all nations…. I pray that you will have my eyes to adore my Son, and my Heart to love Him as I love Him, and my humility to follow Him at all costs. Be strong and filled with faith, for my adorable Son is yours…. I bless you in His most glorious, omnipotent and adorable Name - a Name to which all shall bow on bended knee….” (Our Lady of Emmitsburg, Private 01-04-09)

Fiftieth World Day of Peace

1 JANUARY 2017

Nonviolence: a Style of Politics for Peace

“All of us want peace. Many people build it day by day through small gestures and acts; many of them are suffering, yet patiently persevere in their efforts to be peacemakers. In 2017, may we dedicate ourselves prayerfully and actively to banishing violence from our hearts, words and deeds, and to becoming nonviolent people and to building nonviolent communities that care for our common home. “Nothing is impossible if we turn to God in prayer. Everyone can be an artisan of peace.”

First the election and now for our protection!

54-Day Novena Rosary Novena for the USA...

Post-Election Prayer for the USA

Yes, the election is over, and the prayers of many were heard and answered by Our Lord and Our Lady, but is the war over? Most certainly not! A battle may have been won, but the war between good and evil will now intensify, and so too must our prayer intensify! Please join us daily in this prayer until the full victory is achieved:

Lord, please give us the strength to go forth from this day of victory for the pro-life cause, as the division in our country is very obvious to us now. We praise you Lord, and thank you for the many blessings and mercy you have allowed during this Year of Mercy. As it comes to a close, we ask you for continued protection of the innocent, conversion of the lost sheep, and courage and bravery to confront the evil one's attacks, as he uses spiritually blind people to instigate death and destruction upon our citizens, our property, homes, and businesses. Please guide each of us to know Your Will, and to do Your Will to the best of our abilities. Lord, grant us the gifts of wisdom, knowledge, understanding and discernment, so that we may see clearly. We praise You Lord God, for You are our Creator, our Saviour, our Sanctifier. We love You Lord Jesus and beg You to be patient with our weaknesses, and to grant protection against the snares of the evil one. Please cover Your people with Your Precious Blood. We ask this through the Sacred Heart of Jesus, and through the intercession of Our Blessed Mother Mary and St. well as all the Holy Angels and Saints with You in Heaven.

Immaculate Heart of Mary cover us with your mantle of protection....St Michael the Archangel defend us in this day of battle. Amen!

Feast of St. André Bessette - January 6th

First Canadian-born, male saint, brother & St. Joseph devotee (1845-1937)

“I am only a man, just like you…. I will pray for you.”
(St. André Bessette)

Alfred Bessette became a Holy Cross brother in Montreal, Canada, in the late 19th century. Through his kindness and caring, many souls experienced healing and renewal, most especially through his devotion to St. Joseph. In a devotional prayer to Blessed André, we pray:

“Blessed Brother André, your devotion to St. Joseph is an inspiration to us. You gave your life selflessly to bring the message of his life to others. Pray that we may learn from St. Joseph, and from you, what it is like to care for Jesus and do his work in the world. Amen

St. André is noted for his great devotion to St. Joseph and his trust in his powerful intercession. Join us in this 9-day Novena Prayer that Never Fails, as we implore the aid of both St. Joseph and St. André for our families, our Church, our nation and our world:

Novena Prayer that Never Fails...

What has Our Lord in His Lessons said on the feast of St. André Bessette?

“…I carry the Wounds in My Most Sacred Heart from all the division and wicked ways so many have chosen to pursue…. I want My people to know that the amount of love they render to their neighbor is the amount of love they have for Me. Ponder My Words and recognize your position with your neighbor. Evaluate your self-love which consists of conditions, and strive to love as I am Love. Practice! Purity of heart rises from unconditional service and charity. ….” (JOM, Vol I, #4, 01-06-95, Love of God is Love of Neighbor)

I AM Your Jesus of Mercy:
January 6, 1995...

What has Our Lady of Emmitsburg said on the feast of St. André?

“…At all costs, never leave my Son. Never walk away from Him. All the evil that affects you through tribulations is not vindictive from God. His Love and Mercy is protecting you. But you know that the time is nearing; the time is nearing where things will get far worse because so few are taking this to heart and unifying in the Truth….” (OLOE Private 01-06-00)

“…This is a time to remove the obstacles preventing you from having an intimate union with God…. This is a rejuvenating time, but a time of cleansing from the ways of your ‘self’. This is a time of contemplation, as joy awaits each one of you as you are graced to seek union with God. There are many areas in your lives which block you from living His Love fully. Jesus... desires each of you to discover the meaning behind your life….” (OLOE Public 01-06-00)

“When you invoke St. Joseph, you don’t have to say much.
Say, 'If you were in my place, St. Joseph, what would you do?
Well, pray for this on my behalf.’”

Feast of the Epiphany - January 8, 2017

Prayer to the Holy Magi

O Holy Magi, who regarded neither the severity of the season, nor the inconveniences of the journey that you might find the newborn Messiah; obtain for us the grace not to allow ourselves to be discouraged by any of the difficulties which may meet us on the way of salvation. Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Ghost, as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen. (Our Lady of Emmitsburg, Dec. 26, 1996)

My Gift to the Christchild...

In the Responsorial Hymn on this Solemnity of the Epiphany, we sing:

“Lord, every nation on earth will adore you.”
(Ps 72:11)

On this Feast of the Epiphany, let us ponder the words and sentiments of Sacred Scripture, Our Lady of Emmitsburg and two of her beloved saints, Faustina and Therese of Lisieux, as it relates to the Adorable Child:

Words of God the Father - January 8, 2006

Eleven years ago today God our Father warned that there are consequences for all that He sees and hears as he patiently waits on humanity:

“…I, as God your Father, mercifully waiting, gaze upon humanity….

Truly there is a lack of wisdom and a lack of humility on your part for not being able to see with the eyes of the heart the gift that has been handed to you….

Yet, as a Merciful Father, I listen and I will intervene….

I wait; I watch; I listen; and My Judgment is a judgment of Justice. You, children of humanity, know not the day, the hour nor the time, not the place nor the event. Perhaps then, it is time for you to amend your lives and to be enlightened, as if today was your last. Perhaps, it is time for you to love, as if today was your last opportunity to love; and perhaps it is time for you to be grateful, as if today was your last chance to give praise and thanksgiving to Me for your life.

Yes, just perhaps today! Peace.”

Daily Consecration to the Eternal Father

For the greater glory of God and for the salvation of all, I consecrate myself to You, O' Eternal Father, as one of Your faithful remnant. Behold, I come to do Your Will. With the help of Your Grace, I will keep Your Commandments. I will love and reverence You with all my heart, soul, mind and strength. I will love my neighbor as You love me.

I make this Consecration through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary and the Sacred Heart of Your beloved Son, Jesus.

O' Eternal Father, send forth Your Holy Spirit to restore my/our broken image and likeness of You. Send forth also Your entire Heavenly Court, all the celestial choirs of Your angels and all Your Saints, to aid me/us in my/our struggle against all the forces of evil in this present darkness. Amen.

(Adapted from the Father of All Mankind Apostolate)

The Lord's Prayer

How many of us have said the “Our Father” with so little thought, so little reverence, and so little fruitfulness? However, when we are open to the Holy Spirit within us and pray from the heart, look at what can happen:"

Our Father, (“Our” Father—not “My” Father - all of God’s children of all races, all colors & all creeds)

Our Father, (Abba, “Daddy” God)

Who art in Heaven, (and Who art in me)

Hallowed be Thy Name. (Holy be Thy Name, praised be Thy Name, thanks be to Thy Most Holy Name)

Thy Kingdom come. (now - on earth and in me)

Thy Will be done, (now - on earth and in me)

on earth as it is in Heaven. (at the Throne of God, with the Trinity, Our Lady and all the Angels and Saints)

Give us this day our daily bread. (the Bread of your Divine Will, the Bread of Life in the Eucharist, and the bread we need to eat to sustain our bodies)

And forgive us our trespasses(forgive us our sins, our imperfections and our hesitancies in the face of temptation)

As we forgive those (or as we choose not to forgive those) who trespass against us.

And lead us not into temptation,(for we are weak, we are worthless, we are wretched & we are nothing)

But deliver us from evil.(for it is only through your grace, not by our works alone nor our merit that we can escape eternal damnation)

Amen. (So I hope. So be it).

Feast of the Baptism of Our Lord - January 9, 2017

In the 2nd liturgical reading from the Acts of the Apostles on the Feast of the Baptism of Our Lord, we read:

Peter proceeded to speak:

“…In truth, I see that God shows no partiality.
Rather, in every nation
whoever fears Him
and acts uprightly
is acceptable to Him….”

FEAR - Part XI
The “Holy” Fear of the Lord...

What has Our Lady of Emmitsburg said on her Son's Baptismal feast?

“Now is the time embarking upon the world when humanity will know the Truth of Christ…. The world will also know of the truth of the Triumph of the Immaculate Heart and that my Son has come not only as a Child, as a Salvific Savior, but as the Child who will rule the world in Truth in the beginning of the new era. Not all people understand the meaning of the Child, and they also do not understand that to be a “child” one has to be born through the Holy Spirit in the purity of the womb, to come forth to bear the Cross as did the Salvific Savior; and as one takes this Cross, not the entire Cross itself, but only one little sliver of the Cross, it will be revealed to each soul the Truth of Who My Son is….

“…Everyone is looking for a magnificent, triumphant new beginning. Yes, the new beginning is unfolding, triumphant indeed; but the way God works throughout history and in this very time is always magnificently mysterious. The mystery of Christ’s Love is such that all can live in their faith and rise to a new beginning where all shall know that they have been created in the oneness and likeness of the Triune God….” (OLOE Private 01-12-03, The Feast of the Baptism of Our Lord)

“…Remember: ‘Littleness’ is greatness, and to be great you can be the tiniest atom that hides within my Son’s Heart. There you are protected. God did not need me, He chose me; and as He does not need anyone, He chooses you. Why! Because He loves you in His Plan for the fulfillment of ‘life’ and the salvation of humanity….” (OLOE Private 01-10-10)

Pope Benedict XVI on the Baptism of Jesus

“…The Baptism of Jesus at the Jordan is the anticipation of His Baptism of Blood on the Cross, and it is a symbol of the entire sacramental activity by which the Redeemer will bring about the salvation of humanity….” (Pope Benedict XVI, Angelus Homily, 01-07-07, The Feast of the Baptism of the Lord)

In September, 2005, a private ministry, Fear Not, Inc., committed to spreading Our Lady’s Plan to the world was formed by Nikki and Alan Todd in Mahanoy, Pennsylvania. Their first publication was a newspaper edition entitled Private Revelation 12:1, referring to the scriptural passage, “A great sign appeared in the sky, a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars.” (Rev. 12:1). They have subsequently published many tools of evangelization, most recently the monthly booklet, Immaculate Heart and Soul. They are also the sponsors of the monthly First Sunday Worldwide Prayer Group in honor of Our Lady of Emmitsburg, and select a previous message to ponder and discuss with your local groups.

Prayer to Save America

During these critical times in U.S. history as well as in salvation history, the Foundation will be including this prayer on all enewsletters.

O merciful God, we cry to Thee for pardon and for mercy.
We are an unbelieving and perverse generation.
We are disobedient, disloyal and ungrateful to Thee.
We have excluded Thee from our homes, our schools, our places of business.
We are no longer worthy to be called Thy children.
Merciful Father, spare America!
Forgive us!
Save us from the scourge we deserve.
Teach us Thy law, and move our wills to serve Thee today and everyday.
Merciful God, please spare America!
O Immaculate Heart of Mary,
Pray for us!
