The Deep State vs. OUR LADY

Over the past year we have heard much in the news about “The Deep State,” which usually gets written off as some silly conspiracy theory.  But what if this is a true battle for the life and liberty of our nation—not a political battle between Democrats and Republicans in the USA, but rather a worldwide spiritual battle between good and evil?  And whom do you think holds the key to victory?

 

Secret Societies and Our Lady

“…It is called by many the Deep State, the shadow government,

and it is a virulent cancer on the United States and the world….

What do the FBI, the DOJ, the Secret Societies

& Our Lady Have in Common?

The President and the Press

By President John Fitzgerald Kennedy

April 27, 1961

“…Today no war has been declared--and however fierce the struggle may be, it may never be declared in the traditional fashion. Our way of life is under attack. Those who make themselves our enemy are advancing around the globe. The survival of our friends is in danger. And yet no war has been declared, no borders have been crossed by marching troops, no missiles have been fired.  If the press is awaiting a declaration of war before it imposes the self-discipline of combat conditions, then I can only say that no war ever posed a greater threat to our security. If you are awaiting a finding of "clear and present danger," then I can only say that the danger has never been more clear and its presence has never been more imminent….”

Read President Kennedy’s entire address….

Pray and Discern!

The Month Dedicated to the Holy Family

But while he thought on these things,
behold the angel of the Lord
appeared to him in his sleep, saying:
“Joseph, son of David,
fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife,
for that which is conceived in her,
is of the Holy Ghost…”
 
(Mt 1:20)

Consecration to the Holy Family

O Jesus, our most loving Redeemer, who having come to enlighten the world with Thy teaching and example, didst will to pass the greater part of Thy life in humility and subjection to Mary and Joseph in the poor home of Nazareth, thus sanctifying the Family that was to be an example for all Christian families, graciously receive our family as it dedicates and consecrates itself to Thee this day. Do Thou protect us, guard us and establish amongst us Thy holy fear, true peace and concord in Christian love: in order that by living according to the divine pattern of Thy family we may be able, all of us without exception, to attain to eternal happiness.

Mary, dear Mother of Jesus and Mother of us, by the kindly intercession make this our humble offering acceptable in the sight of Jesus, and obtain for us His graces and blessings.

O Saint Joseph, most holy Guardian of Jesus and Mary, help us by thy prayers in all our spiritual and temporal needs; that so we may be enabled to praise our divine Savior Jesus, together with Mary and thee, for all eternity. Amen.

(Say an Our Father, Hail Mary and Glory be three times.)

Feast of St. Claude de la Colombiere - February 15

Priest, Orator & Spiritual Director to St. Margaret Mary Alacoque

“A strange and unhappy slavery is that of a man who seeks to please other men. I vow never to do anything nor to leave anything undone because of what people think. This will set up in me a great interior peace.” (St. Claude de la Colombiere, 1641-1682)

The Perfect Friend of the Heart of Jesus...

Litany of the Sacred Heart of Jesus...

 

What has OLOE said on this feast of St. Claude?

“…Soon enough I will outline to you the works of so many religious priests and nuns as well as seculars, who deviate from the Founding Fathers, and who do not support or give glory to God by their words or actions. For now, pray for all those who persecute both you and others. Know that this very serious matter will sooner rather than later be before them…. Each one will be held accountable, when they meet God face to face and when you meet God face to face, for how each has loved…. You must defend Truth, for Justice must meet face to face with God’s Mercy where holiness and faith abound in eternal glory. So you must defend the Truth, but you must forgive also!” (OLOE Public 05-30-96)

Despair Prayer

Lord, I am in this world to show Your Mercy to others. Other people will glorify You by making visible the power of Your grace by their fidelity and constancy to You. For my part, I will glorify You by making known how good You are to sinners, that Your Mercy is boundless and that no sinner, no matter how great his offences, should have reason to despair of pardon. If I have grievously offended You, my Redeemer, let me not offend You even more by thinking that You are not kind enough to pardon Me. Amen (St. Claude de la Colombiere, 1641-1682)

Feast of the Seven Holy Founders of the Servite Order

February 17

In the early 13th century, 7 prominent businessmen from Florence, Italy, chose to retire from the world and devote their lives to the service of the Blessed Virgin Mary with a special veneration to her Seven Sorrows. They continue to spread over the Americas, Europe, Africa, and the Far East. Ten have been canonized and several beatified:

Rosary of the Seven Sorrows of Mary...

 

What has Our Lady of Emmitsburg said on this Servite feast?

“…It seems many of you have hardened your hearts and have become quite proud in matters of spirituality. Did you forget that my Son presented Himself to the world with a meek and humble Heart; and as the only Savior of the world, He taught those who desired to know the Truth that they too must be meek and humble of heart?….
…Open your hearts and your minds to God's gift to you, for my days of visitations are numbered to my Son's messengers across the world. If the world continues to ignore the importance of prayer and moral ethics and does not restore them to their rightful place, the world will suffer a tragedy of a world war as never witnessed before in history….”
 (Public OLOE, Feb. 17, 2000)

1st Sunday in Lent - February 18, 2018

 

Recurring themes during each Lenten Season are penance, conversion, repentance, obedience prayer, fasting and almsgiving. In their many gifts to the world God the Father in His WordsOur Lord Jesus Christ in His Lessons, and Our Lady of Emmitsburg in her Messages frequently address each of these. Over the remaining weeks of this Lenten Season, we will review these.

 

In the Gospel from St. Mark on this First Sunday of Lent, we read of the humanness of Our Lord in subjecting Himself to the temptations of the devil, and of the means He used to combat those temptations:

The Spirit drove Jesus out into the desert,

and He remained in the desert for  forty days, tempted by Satan.

He was among wild beasts, and the angels ministered to Him…” 

(Mk 1:12-13)

 

Yes, He was tempted,  and He prayed and fasted! Do we live in a world, and even in a Church, that has forgotten, what fasting even means? Let us recall what Our Lord Jesus Christ in His Lessons to the world and Our Lady of Emmitsburg in her Messages as well as Popes and mystics have taught us about the prayer power in fasting:

FASTING...

Feast of St. Bernadette Soubirous - February 18

French peasant, Marian visionary, Sister of Charity

“You will not find happiness in this world, but only in the next.”
(Our Lady of Lourdes to Bernadette)

 

NOVENA TO SAINT BERNADETTE SOUBIROUS
(Say for nine days or as a perpetual novena.)

Dear Saint Bernadette, Chosen by Almighty God as a channel of His Graces and Blessings, and through your humble obedience to the requests of Our Blessed Mother, Mary, you gained for us the Miraculous waters of Spiritual and physical healing.

We implore you to listen to our pleading prayers that we may be healed of our Spiritual and physical imperfections.

Place our petitions in the Hands of our Holy Mother, Mary, so that She may place them at the feet of Her beloved Son, Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, that He may look on us with mercy and compassion:(Make Petition)

Help, O Dear Saint Bernadette to follow your example, so that irrespective of our own pain and suffering we may always be mindful of the needs of others, especially those whose sufferings are greater than ours.

As we await the Mercy of God, remind us to offer up our pain and suffering for the conversion of sinners, and in reparation for the sins and blasphemies of mankind.

Pray for Saint Bernadette, that like you, we may always be obedient to the will of Our Heavenly Father, and that through our prayers and humility we may bring consolation to the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary that have been so grievously wounded by our sins.

Holy Saint Bernadette of Lourdes, Pray for us. AMEN.

One Decade of the Rosary.

Memorare.

O Mary conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to Thee. (Say (3) Three Times)

What has OLOE said on the feast of St. Bernadette?

“This is a time of special grace, when my Son suffered for you so that you could be renewed and would know how truly you are loved…. There is a change to come soon. For many of you who have suffered so tremendously, the great gift of Joy is soon at hand. There will be changes in the world because God looks upon this world desiring to bring back once again all those who have walked away from Him. His Justice will prevail. All of you who love Him with all your hearts are protected with the Seal of the Crossand saved through His Precious Blood….” (OLOE Public 05-30-96)

“…I must die to myself continually and accept trials without complaining.
I work, I suffer and I love with no other witness than His Heart.
Anyone who is not prepared to suffer all for the Beloved
and to do His Will in all things is not worthy of the sweet name of Friend,
for here below, Love without suffering does not exist….”
(St. Bernadette, 1844-1879)

President’s Day (USA)—February 19, 2018

 

Are you aware of the experience of the first US President, George Washington, had with Our Lady, and the prophecies about this nation and the world that She foretold? Do you think any of our current politicians would give Her any attention if She were to visit them today?

"This afternoon, as I was sitting at this table engaged in preparing a dispatch, something seemed to disturb me. Looking up, I beheld standing opposite me a singularly beautiful female. So astonished was I, for I had given strict orders not to be disturbed, that it was some moments before I found language to inquire the cause of her presence....A new influence, mysterious, potent, irresistible, took possession of me.... Everything about me seemed to rarify, the mysterious visitor herself becoming more airy and yet more luminous. Presently I heard a voice saying, ‘Son of the Republic, look and learn.'"

Feast of St. Peter Damien - February 21

Bishop and Doctor of the Church (1007-1072)

Prayer of St. Peter Damien to the Mary as Mother of Mercy

“…In your hands are the treasures of the Lord’s mercy. You alone have been chosen to receive this great privilege. Far be it from you that your hand should cease to give, eager as you are for an occasion to save the wretched and to pour forth your mercy. For your glory is not lessened but enhanced when sorrowful sinners obtain forgiveness and, justified, are taken to Heaven. It is our highest glory next to God, to behold you, to cleave to you, and to stay under your strong protection. Hear us, for even your Son honors you by refusing nothing to you - He Who is God, blessed forever. Amen.”

What has Our Lord said on St. Peter Damien's feast day?

“The evil one cannot irritate you with confusing thoughts if you have given Me your mind. Those who walk with Me and follow Me harbor pure thoughts. Their temptations can only be short-lived, for evil thoughts are not able to manipulate their actions…. If I have your heart, but not your mind, your struggles will persecute you with the complexity of analysis and acceptance of the Truth. You will doubt and easily fall apart at the simplest comment of mockery. You heart will suffer tremendously when it is not in unity with your mind. Your deeds reflect not only the desires of your heart, but also your mind. If your mind harbors impure thoughts and struggles with introspection, then your heart will suffer because this results in conflict….” (JOM, Vol II, #47, 02-21-90, Unity)

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!
