The Month of Mary...

NEW Our Lady of Emmitsburg Rosaries

In honor of Our Lady in this Month of the Most Holy Rosary, it is the privilege of the Foundation to direct you to two private companies specializing in faith-inspired handcrafted rosaries and jewelry. Most notable has been their efforts in designing the first Our Lady of Emmitsburg rosaries. We would like to introduce you to the beautiful artistry of Vanessa Rackers of Little Gemma Designs in Waynesboro, PA, and Arasely Chelsea Rios of Seraphym Designs in Temecula, CA. With the holiday season fast approaching, you may find some very special gift ideas here. Thanks to Vanessa and Chelsea!

Traditionally May has been celebrated as the month of Mary, the Mother of Jesus. One of the most pious practices that has come down through the centuries is that of the May Crowning of the Virgin Mary.

Feast of St. Bernardine of Siena - May 20

Franciscan Priest
Italian God’s Apostle of the Holy Name of Jesus
 
(1380-1442)

“The Name of Jesus is a remedy for our infirmities; it gave sight to the blind, hearing to the deaf, nimbleness to the lame, speech to the mute, life to the dead…. I have learned from witnesses worthy of faith that in our days, many have laid their hands on the sick, according to the divine precept, and have invoked the Name of Jesus, and those illnesses were healed. As the Prophet says, ‘He saved them for His Name’s sake, to make known His power. (Ps 105: 7-8)’"             (St. Bernardine of Siena)

What has OLOE said on this feast of St. Bernadine of Siena?

“…Little ones, pray for the gifts of the Holy Spirit, and be open to receive them with gentle, accepting hearts. The Holy Spirit will enlighten you, and he will help you in your quest for Truth. It is the Spirit Who raises you to the heights to become like Jesus in every way…. My Son left you a great gift when He joined the Father in Heaven; and the power of the Holy Spirit is God Himself Who penetrates every source of life…. You are invited not only to become like Jesus, but to be Jesus in every way in the spirit of love, mercy and truth…. Be Jesus through the Holy Spirit….” (OLOE Public 05-20-99)

The 6th Sunday of Easter—May 21, 2017

In this 2nd liturgical reading from the1st Letter of St Peter on this 6th Sunday of Easter, he discusses what is needed to  deal with those who seek the will of God by explaining the Truth to those who might persecute and malign them.  Even in that suffering, all must move forward and defend the Truth with gentleness and reverence and hope:

“Beloved:
Sanctify Christ as Lord in your hearts.
Always be ready to give an explanation
to anyone who asks you for a reason for your hope,
but do it with gentleness and reverence,
keeping your conscience clear,
so that, when you are maligned,
those who defame your good conduct in Christ
may themselves be put to shame.

For it is better to suffer for doing good,

if that be the will of God, than for doing evil.”

(1 PT 3:15-17)

In a world where Truth has become relative, gentleness has become a sign of weakness, and the mystical gifts of God through private revelation from around the world are nor more than a curiosity to both clergy and laity alike, God the Father in His Words to the world, Our Lord Jesus Christ in His Lessons and Our Lady of Emmitsburg in her Messages teach us about that often forgotten fruit of the Holy Spirit: Gentleness:

Gentleness Part B

Litany to St. Rita of Cascia...

 

What has Our Lady of Emmitsburg said on this feast of St. Rita?

“…Everything that God wills or allows to happen to you stems from His infinite Love. Even in the mystery of your deepest sufferings, this too is an expression of His Love which He has allowed you to share with Him. You belong to God, and He wants all of your hearts and wills….Events are allowed in your life to make certain that your hearts and wills belong completely and unconditionally to Him alone….In order for you to be able to recognize Him, you must desire His Love and love Him alone….” (OLOE Public 05-22-97)

Our Lady of Emmitsburg May 22, 1997...

“…How blessed are you to receive the gift of suffering, a gift that cleanses and purifies, and one which joins you with my Son in a salvific way…. I bless all of you and take your petitions to My Son’s Most Sacred Heart, a Heart on fire for you, a Heart torn so that it might give to you... Take it! He extends it to you. Let it burn within you, and you shall never be thirsty. As He thirsts, you quench His thirst by your every prayer….” (OLOE Private 05-22-04)

“To love unconditionally is difficult because of original sin, however you can strip yourself and continually strive to ask God to eliminate those passions and desires in your life that prevent you or prohibit you from growing in love…. A period of time could be soon as today; and yet, due to the mystery of God in His Love and light and patience, it could be longer. Therefore, it is truly indefinable. But this should not stop you or inhibit you from preparing as I have asked. Because of one’s passions, no one could truly be ready at a moment’s notice. It takes time to change and time to alleviate your fear….” (OLOE Private 05-22-08)

The Feast of the Ascension of Our Lord--May 25, 2017

We are now 40 days past Easter. Many of us have forgotten our Lenten intentions. Many are focused on the end of the school year and summer plans. The professional sports playoffs are in full swing. But in 2008 God the Father gave us some chilling Words on the Feast of the Ascension of the Lord:

“…No one knows the time. Many may mock My Words, for no one desires to know the Truth before them…I am there for those who want Me and who have listened along the Way. But for those who at the last moment cry out to their God, perhaps………                  (GTF 05-08-08)

Words of God the Father, May 8, 2008...

What has OLOE said on the feast of her Son's Ascension?

“...On a day like today there is tremendous turmoil in the world, and yet there is tremendous hope. I would ask you to continue to pray for all the children of the world. Pray for those throughout the world who are in families without parents, without siblings, and without anything to look forward to. Pray for those who do not even know that there is a God, that He is the Source of life, and when that life commences. Pray for those who are so alone and so sorrowful that they do not even know how to be happy..." (OLOE Private Ascension Thursday 05-20-04)

Our Lady of Emmitsburg Ascension Thursday May 20, 2004...

"...So this is a day of rejoicing, a great, great Feast! Yes, He rose; and as He ascended into Heaven, angels asked, “Why do you look? For as you see Him lifted up into the Heavens, so shall He return the same way.” (Acts 1:11) Yes, at the end of time; but, my little ones, you know that this is now a time of great grace. This time is the time of the Eucharistic Reign that all may be drawn into the Child Jesus to regain and to have reborn into their lives the childlike ways of innocence and dependence on God..." (OLOE Private Ascension Thursday 05-05-05)

Our Lady of Emmitsburg Ascension Thursday May 5, 2005...

"...This is the time that God the Father is revealing the beauty of my most Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart. Nothing can change that momentum or the omnipotence behind His Plan. You, however, must realize that in your life, things seem far greater than in other peoples’ lives. They are magnified. If you look to Jesus and focus on Him, then His Life becomes more intensified and yours not as magnified. This allows you to have a holy indifference, waiting patiently with confidence and joy for God’s Divine Will and timing to unfold...."                                                      (OLOE Private Ascension Thursday Vigil 05-16-07)

Our Lady of Emmitsburg Ascension Thursday Vigil May 16, 2007...

"...And is that not related to this most glorious day of my Son’s Ascension? What is that all about? Do you really know? With years of study and reflection, do you really know the meaning? Perhaps now, with open heart and open ears and open mind, you might grasp the validity of the Truth..."  (OLOE Private Ascension Thursday 05-01-08)

Our Lady of Emmitsburg Ascension Thursday May 1, 2008...

“..Men of Galilee, why are you standing there looking at the sky? This Jesus who has been taken up from you into heaven will return in the same way as you have seen Him going into Heaven..” Acts(1-11)

Private Revelations 12:1

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

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 Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary,
Pray for us!
