Due to advances in technology and the 12 year old template for our website, we do not currently have the ability to send out the weekly Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart enewsletter, nor do we have the ability to add new members or unsubscribe anyone

We are working with our server provider to make the necessary changes to resume that functionality; however, it may interfere with the transmission of the weekly newsletter by e-mail until later in July.  We will, however, still be able to post each weekly enewsletter in the “eNewsletter Archive” on the left hand menu of the website at the following link:

We will notify you when those e-mails will resume as they have come since 2006 and when new members may subscribe (freely).  Until then they will come as a Yahoo e-mail.

We are sorry for the inconvenience!

 

 

The Month of the Most Precious Blood of Jesus

Why do we commemorate the Most Precious Blood of Jesus?...

Adoration of His Most Precious Blood?

Litany of the Most Precious Blood of Jesus...

 

Prayer of St. Gertrude the Great

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.

(Our Lord told St. Gertrude the Great that the above prayer would release 1,000 souls from Purgatory each time it is said. The prayer was extended to include living sinners which would alleviate the indebtedness accrued to them during their lives.)

 

 

Words of God the Father—July 8, 2008

Nine years ago today, God the Father in His Words to the world very accurately described the state of our current world, a state of unresponsiveness and negligence in most of humanity:

 

“…Time is moving forward, and so few seem to pay attention to My great Love for all.  When the time comes where there is chaos and hardships, how can you run to a Father looking for advice if you have not listened or put into practice the advice I have given before?  You would be filled with yourself; and if you are filled with “self” knowledge, and the distance from your mind to your heart is great, how will you hear the quiet words, the few I will give, of instruction to help you?"

 

"When you hear My words, you cry in fear and you are frightened; but have you ever thought to put into practice My words to truly be athletically fit to endure spiritually?  If you haven’t, then do not cry; for the negligence is not on the part of your Father, but rather in your lack of response….”   (GTF, July 8, 2008)

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.

Novena of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel

July 8-16, 2017

On July 16th, the Church celebrates The Feast of Our Lady of Mount Carmel. In Fatima on October 13, 1917, Our Lady appeared to the three children in the sky as Our Lady of Mount Carmel, holding the Child Jesus and the Brown Scapular. Let us celebrate this feast with the Novena to Our Lady of Mount Carmel and by refreshing our minds and hearts on the significance of the Brown Scapular. Join us in this 9 day novena to Our Lady beginning today, July 8, and ending on her Feast day, July 16, as we ask for her protection and guidance on our journey into these troubled times, the end of an era:

Novena to Our Lady of Mount Carmel...

 

The 14th Sunday in Ordinary Time - July 9, 2017

In today’s Gospel on this 14th Sunday in Ordinary Time, Our Lord exclaimed:

 

“…I give praise to you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, for although you have hidden these things from the wise and the learned, you have revealed them to little ones….”  (Mt 11: 25-26)

 

Why is it that God has so often throughout salvation history revealed His Will to His little ones?  Because they will listen!  Let us ponder what God the Father in His Words to the world, Our Lord Jesus Christ in His Lessons and Our Lady of Emmitsburg in her Messages have shared regarding God’s Love for His children, the absoluteness of Truth, the battle and the victory over evil:

 

Evil, 8A, revised, The Victory over Evil

 

 

Feast of St. Benedict - July 11

5th Century Italian Priest and Abbott, Patriarch of Western Monasticism 
(480-543)

As a youth he left home to live a hermit’s life of penance and prayer near Rome in Subiaco. As others became aware of his sanctity, he gathered large numbers of followers around him. His Rule became the foundation for religious life for all the Western religious orders and congregations after his time, showing the way to religious perfection through mortification, humility, prayer and silence.

The Medal of St. Benedict
Its origin, description, power and approved blessing...

Approved Blessing of the Medal of St. Benedict

Medals of Saint Benedict are sacramentals that may be blessed legitimately by any priest or deacon -- not necessarily a Benedictine (Instr., 26 Sept. 1964; Can. 1168). The following English form may be used.

V. Our help is in the name of the Lord.
R. Who made heaven and earth.

In the name of God the Father + almighty, who made heaven and earth, the seas and all that is in them, I exorcise these medals against the power and attacks of the evil one. May all who use these medals devoutly be blessed with health of soul and body. In the name of the Father + almighty, of the Son + Jesus Christ our Lord, and of the Holy + Spirit the Paraclete, and in the love of the same Lord Jesus Christ who will come on the last day to judge the living and the dead, and the world by fire.
Amen.

Let us pray. Almighty God, the boundless source of all good things, we humbly ask that, through the intercession of Saint Benedict, you pour out your blessings+ upon these medals. May those who use them devoutly and earnestly strive to perform good works be blessed by you with health of soul and body, the grace of a holy life, and remission of the temporal punishment due to sin.

May they also with the help of your merciful love, resist the temptation of the evil one and strive to exercise true charity and justice toward all, so that one day they may appear sinless and holy in your sight. This we ask though Christ our Lord.  Amen.  (The medals are then sprinkled with holy water.)

 

What has Our Lord Himself said on this great St. Benedict's feast day?

“…Salvation came to the world because I carried the Cross and suffered for mankind. Those who desire My glory can only be glorified in Me through their suffering and cross. Rejoicing should be exclaimed for those who suffer, for they have been found worthy by God to suffer like unto Me.... It is in the moments you feel abandoned and all alone that you can be sure that your suffering has not gone unnoticed, but that it is redemptive….”(JOM, Vol III, #9, 07-11-90, Redemptive Suffering)

I AM Your Jesus of Mercy:
REDEMPTIVE SUFFERING
July 11, 1990...

What has OLOE said on this great St. Benedict's feast day?

“…How much longer do you think terrible abominations against God can continue before destruction of your world happens through human hands? ...Time is no longer on your side. Take every opportunity each day to become selfless and to follow Jesus through Love & Mercy…. Please listen to my plea and return to God.” (OLOE Public 07-11-96)

 

 “Little ones, do not fear. Keep your wits about you. Please, trust in God’s Love, remain focused on Him, and know that evil shall be slain. I want you to continue to read and reread my messages so that you do not fear whether this is all from God. He allows everything so that all will be purified and glorified in His Holy Name…. This is a great battle indeed!...” (OLOE Private 07-11-03)

 

 

 

 

July 13, 1917 - The 3rd Fatima Marian Apparition

On May 11, 2000, OLOE gave an astounding prophesy:

“…I have been waiting for 2000 years to fulfill the plan God the Father has commissioned to me to bear the fruits of my Son’s redemption. Through My Immaculate Heart I will obtain for you from my Blessed Son every grace, justice, charity and peace. What commenced in Fatima with my three little children will continue now and come to fruition here at the Center of My Immaculate Heart….” (Our Lady of Emmitsburg, Public, May 11, 2000)

Certainly, this third apparition in Fatima was the most informational, with Our Lady of Fatima promising the miracle in October of 1917, showing the children hell, asking for prayers for the conversion of sinners and in reparation for the sins against her Immaculate Heart through the First Saturday devotions, asking for the consecration of Russia to the Immaculate Heart, and promising an end to World War I and predicting the onset of World War II soon after a sign in the skies. She lastly that day asked the children to repeat after each decade of the Rosary: ‘O my Jesus, forgive us our sins, save us from the fires of hell. Lead all souls to heaven, especially those most in need of Thy Mercy.’

The 3rd Apparition in Fatima - July 13, 1917...

 

What did Our Lady of Emmitsburg say on July 13, 2000?

 

On several occasions over the last 20 years, Our Lady has referred to the relationship between her apparitions in Fatima and those here in Emmitsburg. Including even another October sign:

 

“…I requested, over 80 years ago at Fatima, sacrifice for sinners’ conversion in reparation for sins against My Immaculate Heart.  I requested recitation of the rosary daily for peace in the world and to end the war.  It was I, your Mother, who said that only I could obtain it.  It was I who requested the consecration of Russia and Holy Saturday devotions.

I predicted a future miracle that all might believe; and now as my plan commences, I once again predict a sign for this October.  God wished to establish world devotion to my Immaculate Heart and now my Immaculate Heart will triumph here at its Center….

Watch and see!”   (Public OLOE, July 13, 2000)

It would seem that Our Lady of Emmitsburg gave the Church a 3-month warning of a sign that would authenticate her appearances here in the United States, here in Emmitsburg.  So how did the Church respond?  In an unsigned letter on September 8, 2000, the Feast of the Birth of Our Lady, the officials at the Diocese of Baltimore shut down the weekly Prayer Group at St. Joseph’s Catholic Church in Emmitsburg, and they had the church doors locked to keep out any pilgrims who might come. Rather than wait to assess what Our Lady had promised, they sought to obstruct it!   Could their actions have been more cowardly and scandalous?  As a “consolation” sign, Gianna and Michael were able to have a totally unplanned and unscheduled meeting with Pope John Paul II in the Apostolic Palace on October 13, 2000, where Gianna gave the Holy Father a picture of Our Lady of Emmitsburg and he blessed the Mission of Mercy ministry.

 

Gianna and Michael Sullivan with Pope John Paul II, Oct. 13, 2000

 

Could Our Lady still have performed that sign in October, 2000? Yes, but she would later say that she chose not to so as to not overtly embarrass her Church!  She then refrained from any public messages to the world for 2 years, when she then again began offering through Gianna Sullivan a monthly message from Heaven to the world:

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!
