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.

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.

The 7th Sunday of Easter—May 28, 2017

In today’s Gospel according to St. John, we get some insight into the relationship between God the Father and His beloved Son as Jesus prepares His Apostles and disciples for His departure:

 “I revealed your Name to those whom You gave me out of the world….They know that everything You gave me is from You, because the words You gave to me I have given to them, and they accepted them and truly understood that I came from You….They are yours…and I have been glorified in them.  And now I will no longer be in the world, but they are in the world, while I am coming to you…”  (Jn 17: 6-11)

Let us recall further that relationship between Father and Son from the Words of God the Father to the world, the Lessons of Our Lord Jesus Christ and the Messages of Our Lady of Emmitsburg:

Memorial Day (USA) - May 29, 2017

Established in 1868 as a day to honor the fallen soldiers of the just concluded Civil War, Memorial Day has grown to become a solemn recognition of all of our nation's war dead and the high price they paid for our freedoms. So too, for many, it has become a day to remember all of our deceased family and friends. And although it is very appropriate to remember their lives and contributions to our lives and families, our country and even our faith, we do not want to forget that many of those very same souls may still be waiting and suffering in Purgatory for their heavenly reward. So this Memorial Day, let us remember them in prayer, for they will never forget in their prayers our simple remembrance of them:



Promise of Our Lord to St. Gertrude the Great

A Prayer to Free 1000 Souls from Purgatory

(A Prayer to Free 1000 Souls from Purgatory)

"Eternal Father, I offer thee the Most Precious Blood of Thy Divine Son, Jesus, in union with the Masses said throughout the world today, for all the holy souls in Purgatory, for sinners everywhere, for sinners in the universal Church, those in my own home and within my family. Amen"

The Flame of Love of the Immaculate Heart of Mary
Excerpts of the Spiritual Diary of Elizabeth Kindelmann
(1913-1985) Budapest, Hungary

Elizabeth Kindelmann was the sole survivor of 13 children during the war and disease-ridden years of World War I in Budapest, Hungary. She lived in poverty till age 16 when she married. She had 6 children between 1931-1942, and then in 1946 her husband died, leaving her a widow with 6 children. Until 1961 she lived a life of poverty and survival, raising her children during a very difficult time. Then in 1962 she received a mystical call and a mission from Our Lord and Our Lady. Her spiritual diary was published and translated after her death, and the "Flame of Love Movement" has been approved by Bernardino Cardinal Echeveria Ruiz, Archbishop of Guayaquil, Equador, in June 1989, and the statutes of the movement approved for the whole Church on Oct. 22, 1996.



Our Lady to Elizabeth regarding the Souls in Purgatory:

“…If at any time, you recite in my honor three Hail Mary's by calling upon my Flame of Love, each time a soul will be released from Purgatory. During the month of the deceased (November), upon the recitation of each Hail Mary, ten souls will be released from Purgatory….” (OLOE Public 05-30-96)

Hail Mary, full of grace,
the Lord is with thee.
Blessed are thou among women,
and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus.

Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners,
and spread the effect of grace
of thy Flame of Love over all of humanity,
now and at the hour of our death. Amen.”

“Ponder His Love and work in unity
towards a tomorrow
where war does not exist
and the spirit of giving
surpasses the desire
to succeed in power.”

(Our Lady of Emmitsburg, Dec. 26, 1996)

On this day we pay tribute to our current and past military personnel and their families whose sacrifice and commitment have purchased for so many of us the very freedoms we have been so fortunate to experience for most of our lives:

Saints and Heroes Prayer...

We live in a world whose history over several millenniums has been a history of war and violence, most often promulgated by greed and power. Will humanity ever learn that this approach will never procure a true and lasting peace? Will hearts always be hardened to the approach that Our Lord Himself outlines? In His Lesson to the world Our Lord addresses these questions:

“…During this period of tribulation, crime, war and struggle, I ask My people to be ‘Warriors of Christ.’ Put on your armor of My Love and the Seal of the Cross to fight for purity and goodness; and your sword will be the sword of Love. That is the way to salvation…. I ask you to persevere and to be strong soldiers. This war is not a war of people, but a war in the heavens…. But you are all subject to its effect, because Satan wants you as victims. My Mother continues to pray for you and to teach you of life’s true happiness, that of surrendering and living as whole persons through simpleness, devotion and commitment in purity to God….” (JOM, Vol IV, #90, 11-01-92) “…Why do I seek those who are little children in simpleness and yet of little influence? Because they listen and are totally dependent on Me…. They march valiantly in the wisdom of silence of the heart, a silence where love dwells and peace resides. The voice of their prayers slays the dragons of evil and those who desire violence and destruction…. The battle is in the heavens against evil, and much prayer, fidelity to faithfulness, and simplicity in surrendering to God are the powerful tools of victory…. Peace is needed….But evil forces chase away those who are weak in prayer…. When many of my children see continual division and brokenness, they begin to doubt whether their prayers are to any avail. Consequently, they stop praying…. Never surrender prayer!...My Peace I give to My people.” (JOM, Vol V, #16, 09-09-95)



Feast of St. Joan of Arc - May 30, 2017

Patroness of Soldiers and of France (1412-1431)

Joan of Arc’s warning to Bishop Cauchon at the Ecclesiastical Hearing:
“You say that you are my judge. I do not know if you are!
But I tell you that you must take good care not to judge me wrongly,
because you will put yourself in great danger.
I warn you, so that if God punishes you for it,
I would have done my duty by telling you!”

Joan of Arc’s last words before being burnt at the stake:
“My voices did come from God,
and everything that I have done was by God’s order….”
“…Hold the Crucifix up before my eyes so I may see it until I die…”
“…Jesus, Jesus, Jesus!”

Brief biography...

Novena Prayer...

What has Our Lord in His Lessons said on the feast of St. Joan of Arc?

“…Why should My Father allow signs from Me if, when they happen, there are unbelievers? We have allowed My Mother all that she wishes, and My people still look on in disbelief. She is the beauty of My Heart. If My people do not listen to her words, they will not listen to Mine! ...You people cannot handle all I wish to give and teach you because of your pompous ego and pride. When you do listen, you do not obey!...” (JOM, Vol II, #53, 05-30-89, Pride - Ego)

I AM Your Jesus of Mercy:
May 30, 1989...

What has OLOE said on the feast of St. Joan of Arc?

“...My army of love is increasing. It is not my desire to speak of things that would fill you with fear. I warn you with words from Heaven and challenge you in order that your souls will be enlightened with God’s Truth. It is only through the grace of prayer that you will be able to discern what is good and what is evil….” (OLOE Public 05-30-96)

“You do not yet have the vision of tomorrow, for the new tomorrow is great! What vision you should have is one that is holy, peaceful, and filled with Love. If you desire to have that vision, then you must rise to the occasion and be true champions and heroes of God’s Love. You must wear the banner of His Light and speak the words of His Truth. You cannot be afraid to face those who would desire to blaspheme God. You cannot be afraid to speak for the Truth with which God has blessed you, especially here where He has allowed me to come. You cannot be afraid of change. You must wear the Truth, believe it with all your heart, and trust….” (OLOE Private 05-30-05)

“…Today there are many who do not like change, and there are many who desire to be right. But who really should fight for what is right? Is it not right to fight for your God? Without Him all would cease. Nothing could survive without Him. Bow in humility and thanksgiving and desire Him. If humanity knew how loving and kind God the Father really and truly is in His persona and charism, they would not stray away….” (OLOE Private 05-30-05)

The Beatification of Joan of Arc by Pope Pius X on April 11, 1909:

"This daughter of peace was roused to the things of war. At first, the maiden was astounded and afraid, but after the voices from Heaven continued, as if the Divine Spirit had been breathed into her, she did not at all doubt that she ought to exchange the spinning wheel for the sword, and the shepherds’ pipes for the sounding of trumpets."

Feast of the Visitation of Our Lady - May 31, 2017

Our Lady had recently been invited to bear the Son of God through the message of an angel of God. She had endured Joseph’s suspicions and disappointments in silence. Most likely she was the topic of gossip and disconcerting glances in her village at Nazareth. She now was going to visit her cousin and share with her all the fears and excitement she carried in her heart as well as her God Whom she carried in her womb. On this Feast of the Visitation, Our Lord Himself in His Lessons to the world through Gianna gave us some advice that He very well could have given to His Mother on her way to visit Elizabeth:

“There is a purpose, Mine and the One Who sent Me, for everything! Take one day at a time. Be patient, be loving, be open-hearted to accept My graces, and pray. Pray for My strength to endure. Pray for true, holy preparation. There is no need to know how you can prepare. If you pray, as I have mentioned, all shall be given to you in accordance with Our wishes, and the Holy Spirit shall guide you!...”                                   (JOM, Vol I, #54, 05-31-89, Patience)

What has Our Lady of Emmitsburg shared on this Feast of the Visitation? In 2005, She likened her visit with Elizabeth to her visitation to the world now!

"Little ones, what does it mean, the Visitation? What does it mean when the Mother of God comes before you? ...So now, here too I am with you, visiting you; and you exclaim, ‘How is it that our Mother should come to us?’ And how is it that so many people do not see that the Mother of their Lord is among them?...

“…I am but a lowly servant, but blessed be His Most Holy Name…. I desire to tell you so many things, but I hold them back in my most Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart. For if I was to mention any future change, my fear is that you might perceive it incorrectly. It is best that you go without knowing, so that you can trust more fully. The more that you trust, as I trusted, the more you are encompassed by the rays of the Holy Trinity, as if in a blanket of Love. This blanket of Love can only protect you so that you are able to fulfill His Most Divine Plan and so that your works will give glory only to Him….”                    (OLOE Private 05-31-05)

Our Lady of Emmitsburg May 31, 2005...

“…It will be like the Visitation when I went before Elizabeth and the child leapt with Joy in her womb. Your hearts too will leap with Joy, for you will be co-redemptorists in Christ; and all the world will remember you for not being afraid and for standing for the Truth….” (OLOE Private 05-31-09)

Our Lady of Emmitsburg May 31, 2009...

Ponder the Pope John Paul II Vatican Address given May 31, 1998 on the Virgin Mary's visitation:

"Today more than ever, Mary appears to us as a figure and model of the Church who, sustained by the Spirit, brings Christ the Savior to the world. The biblical readings for the feast of the Visitation present the Blessed Virgin, who, bearing in her womb the Son of God newly conceived by the power of the Most High, goes to help her elderly cousin Elizabeth. She is the Ark of the New Covenant, who bears within herself the fulfillment of the messianic promises. The meeting between the two women and their unborn children takes place in the joy inspired by the Holy Spirit and culminates in the Magnificat, the song of hope for those who believe in fulfillment of the Lord’s words." (Pope John Paul II, Vatican Gardens, May 31, 1998)

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!
