The Month Dedicated to Mother Mary


The Month of Mary

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.

Novena to Our Lady of Fatima - May 5th thru 13th, 2018

Our Lady of Emmitsburg herself made the link between her message and mission at Fatima and here in Emmitsburg. It may be that the yet to be accomplished Consecration of Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, as prescribed by Our Lady in Fatima, will be the key to unlock all that Our Lady has promised and all that God has to offer to the world through the Center of Our Lady’s Immaculate Heart here in Emmitsburg:

"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."      (OLOE Public 05-11-00)


Our Lady of Emmitsburg May 11, 2000...


Join us in this 9-day Novena in honor of Our Lady of Fatima as we pray for the swift fulfillment of all of the Marian prophecies which would bring us all into the Era of Peace prophesied by Our Lady in Fatima and supported by Sacred Scripture and Tradition:

Novena to Our Lady of Fatima
(Pray for 9 consecutive days)

Most Holy Virgin, who has deigned to come to Fatima to reveal to the three little shepherds the treasures of graces hidden in the recitation of the Rosary, inspire our hearts with a sincere love of this devotion, so that by meditating on the mysteries of our redemption that are recalled in it, we may gather the fruits and obtain the conversion of sinners, the conversion of Russia, and this favor that I so earnestly seek, request which I ask of you in this novena, for the greater glory of God, for your own honor, and for the good of all people. Amen.

Pray 3 sets of: 1 Our Father, 1 Hail Mary, and 1 Glory Be


6th Sunday of Easter, May 6, 2018

In today’s 2nd liturgical reading on this 6th Sunday of Easter from the first letter of St. John, we hear the beloved apostle speak to us about Love—where does it come from and how must it be applied to reach the Kingdom:

“…Whoever is without love does not know God,

for God is Love…”

Let us reflect on the Lessons of Our Lord Jesus Christ to the world and the Messages of Our Lady of Emmitsburg regarding the immensity of God’s Love and the selfless sharing of that Love with all humanity:

Ponder Part One…


Words of God the Father - May 8, 2008

The Words of God the Father

May 8, 2008

“…Do you understand what it means to die?  Do you understand what it means to rise?  How could you rise without first descending to another place?  You cannot rise until you die…. 

…Life as you know it will change to become a life for the few who know it as it is.  They will have full grasp of all of its glory and fruitfulness. 

No one knows the time.  Many may mock my Words, for no one desires to know the Truth before them.  But there will be those who will desire it, as in ages past, who will see it unfold….

To the few who live through this next season of events:   Place the seal of the Cross on your heart.  Protect yourself and do not to listen to anyone but God.   And at that time, you will know what that means….

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…..

And that is the end of the story.  The sentence is not finished.”

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!
