June 2017 - The Month of the Sacred Heart of Jesus

Devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus...

Feast of St. Justin Martyr - June 1

2nd Century Palestinian convert, apologist and martyr

St. Justin, martyred for the faith, was one of the most important 2nd century apologists, writing two apologies in defense of the Christian religion, the most noted being The Dialogue with Trypho, a man of Jewish origin, where Justin mentions the “era of peace.” Justin states to Trypho:

"But I and every other orthodox Christian feel certain that there will be a resurrection of the flesh followed by a thousand years (symbolic) in the rebuilt, embellished, and enlarged city of Jerusalem, as was announced by the prophets Ezekiel, Isaiah and others." (Martyr, Dialogue with Trypho, pp. 277-278; Iannuzzi, The Splendor of Creation, pp. 36-37)

Image of the HOLY SPIRIT hovering over the earth...

 

“Receive the Holy Spirit!”
(Jn 20:22)

On this Feast of Pentecost, let us ponder the life of the Holy Spirit within us through the Lessons from Our Lord Jesus Christ to the world and the Messages of Our Lady of Emmitsburg:

 “I have given My people the greatest gift of all, the Gift of My Holy Spirit. If they would invite My Spirit to dwell in them, people would see and hear according to what I wish for them to see and hear…” (JOM, Vol I, #29, 01-09-89, Presence)

“Who is this Holy Spirit?
The Holy Spirit is My Divine Spirit, Who literally dwells in your physical, bodily formation as your spirit. He is united to the spirit of the soul and body to become a living, walking Spirit of My Father. When the Spirit exists and dwells in you, you share in My Life in all phases and in all totality. From the human perception, My people should perceive the Holy Spirit as a living person. It is like a blind person, who cannot see another living person, but knows with his mind and heart that there are people living in bodily form. My Spirit is a living Person, Who unites His Spirit to your existing spirit, and grants gifts of salvation, peace, beauty and endless graces…”
 (JOM, Vol II, #20, 11-27-89, Holy Spirit)

I AM Your Jesus of Mercy:
HOLY SPIRIT

.

“…Allow the Holy Spirit to grace you and act in you. Have confidence that whatever happens will benefit all souls. You will not fully understand how the Holy Spirit works in you and for what purpose, until you reach the highest level of abandoning yourself to God. In order to receive My grace, you must surrender. Allow My grace to replace everything in your life on which you rely heavily. Focus your attention on what is happening right now, not what happened in the past, or what may come to pass. In this way, the Will of God can move in you. I am the One with all! I dwell in all, but the freedom of the free will allows for surrendering and hence, virtues to be bestowed…”      (JOM, Vol IV, #89, 09-15-92, Confidence)

Catechesis on the Holy Spirit - by Pope John Paul II

Reflect on a series of General Audiences from May 13, 1998 through Dec. 9, 1998, in which Pope John Paul II gives a catechesis on the Holy Spirit. Each of the 31 audience contains a 5-minute reflection on the Spirit of God in each of us, in our Church and in our world. Save this hyperlink in your ?favorites? and devote a month to its study:

Pope John Paul II Catechesis on the Holy Spirit...

On Pentecost Sunday in 2007, God the Father gave these awesome Words of invitation o the world:

"I do not desire for the world to be divided or for my children to become stranded. No one should stray away from the Truth. But so many forget what it means to be a ?child of God,' seeking good Counsel and Knowledge and Understanding, and the awesomeness of Fear, so as to know how wonderful your Father really is. The Piety of children is a great gift, one for all ages to understand and to trust, to have such confidence that all you desire and pray for will be fulfilled because you know a Father of Love will never leave you. Come and realize and grasp this wonderful Understanding and receive these gifts of the Holy Spirit, sent to enlighten and to give you tremendous Wisdom, good Counsel and Fortitude."

Words of God the Father June 8, 2007...

Some words from OLOE on Pentecost Sunday

“…I will challenge you directly through the Gift of the Holy Spirit Who will always be within you to guide you if you respond to Him. ...So whether there be one person here at the Center of my Immaculate Heart, or whether there be one million, it would remain the same; because if one gave glory to my Son, it would be greater than if none did....” (OLOE Private 06-08-03)

Our Lady of Emmitsburg June 8, 2003...

"Within your souls, your hearts and your minds dwells the Holy Spirit. You can do nothing without His promptings. All of your kindness, your loving acts, your goodness, and your communication - all of these are centered around Charity; and the Holy Spirit communicates to each and every one of you, little children... Use your gifts wisely! Pray for Holy Wisdom and wisdom of speech. Make use of every virtue. Be holy. Be saints! ...Nothing should prevent you from becoming saints. Only one more thing is needed, that being personal mortification."      (OLOE Public 06-04-06)

when the Holy Spirit
comes upon you,
and you will be
my witnesses in Jerusalem,
throughout Judea and Samaria,
and to the ends of the earth."

Novena to St. Anthony of Padua - June 5-13

Most of us are aware of the patronage St. Anthony holds for the seekers of lost articles, but we may be much less aware of his patronage for those who share a faith in the Blessed Sacrament. Please join us in this 9-day Novena to St. Anthony for the fervent spread of this faith in Our Lord’s Eucharistic Presence as we move toward the promised Eucharistic Reign of the Child Jesus:

Feast of St. Norbert - June 6

Norbert was a very worldly, opportunistic 11th century priest from Rhineland who met Our Lord in a way not dissimilar from St. Paul. While riding through a terrible storm, a sudden flash of lightning split the dark and his horse threw him to the ground. When he awoke his first words were, “Lord, what do you want me to do?” And in response Norbert heard, “Turn from evil and do good. Seek peace and pursue it.” Will this be a scenario common for much of humanity at the time of the promised Illumination of the Soul?

Learn more about St. Norbert...

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

“…The day will come when you will see the depth and the breadth of the love that is within my most Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart, there to protect you and to guide you, to comfort you and to assist you in your times of need….The day and the time will come when all of humanity, all of this world and this galaxy, all of the cosmos will know how good and loving God is. He is the Creator!... Pray with filial confidence that all that has been said will be fulfilled for the greater glory and honor of God….” (OLOE Private 06-06-07)

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

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

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!
