 Cardinal Burke’s Historic Call for the Consecration of Russia

To the Immaculate Heart of Mary

May 23, 2017

“…In fact, the consecration of Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary did not take place, as she requested, and the Communion of Reparation on the First Saturdays did not become the practice of the universal Church. There ensued the terrible suffering of the Second World War and its aftermath, the spread of atheistic communism, resulting, in fact, in the persecution of many nations and of the Church in those nations, and the annihilation of some nations…..

“…Let us consecrate ourselves to the Immaculate Heart of Mary and work for the consecration of Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Certainly, Pope Saint John Paul II consecrated the world, including Russia, to the Immaculate Heart of Mary on March 25, 1984. But, today, once again, we hear the call of Our Lady of Fatima to consecrate Russia to her Immaculate Heart, in accord with her explicit instruction. The requested consecration is at once a recognition of the importance which Russia continues to have in God’s plan for peace and a sign of profound love for our brothers and sisters in Russia….”  (Cardinal Raymond Burke, USA, May 23, 2017)

Our Lady of All Nations Calls Now for the Consecration of Russia

&

Prayers for the Leaders of the United States and Russia

July 2, 2018

“…Now we are in the End Times when the Consecration of Russia to My Immaculate Heart must be completed in conjunction with these two great powers, the United States and Russia, coming to peaceful terms that will go a long way in influencing the world to pursue world peace in opposition to the global elitists, the minions of satan, who have been covertly and secretly planning a global war that will affect all nations, if satan and his minions are successful in their plans….”  (Our Lady of All Nations, Daugherty, July 2, 2018)

       Read Our Lady’s entire message….

 

Our Lady of Emmitsburg:

“…This really pertains to the Church today, for millions of people have been misled from the Truth by the hierarchy of the Church.  As Queen of Heaven, I can tell you that it gives great disservice to God when the Truth is not revealed, thus not bringing all into a new way, this new era….”  (Our Lady of Emmitsburg, March 19, 2010)

July 2018

The Month Dedicated to 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.)

Prayer for the Protection of Religious Liberty

Through the power and working of your Holy Spirit, you call us to live our faith in the midst of the world, bringing the Light and the saving Truth of the Gospel to every corner of society.

We ask you to bless us in our vigilance for the gift of religious liberty, Give us the strength of mind and heart to readily defend our freedoms when they are threatened; give us courage in making our voices heard on behalf of the rights of your Church and the freedom of conscience of all people of faith.

Grant, we pray, O heavenly Father, a clear and united voice to all your sons and daughters gathered in your Church in this decisive hour in the history of our nation, so that, with every trial withstood and every danger overcome for the sake of our children, our grandchildren, and all who come after us, this great land will always be one nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all."

We ask his through Christ our Lord. Amen

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, , 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:

Feast of Saint Kateri Tekakwitha - July 14

 "I am not my own; I have given myself to Jesus. He must be my only love. The state of helpless poverty that may befall me if I do not marry does not frighten me. All I need is a little food and a few pieces of clothing. With the work of my hands, I shall always earn what is necessary and what is left over I'll give to my relatives and to the poor. If I should become sick and unable to work, then I shall be like the Lord on the Cross. He will have mercy on me and help me, I am sure."

Kateri Tekakwitha (pronounced “gaderi degagwita in Mohawk), originally known as Catherine Tekakwitha, informally known as Lily of the Mohawks (1656 – April 17, 1680), was an Algonquin and Iroquois Native American religious lay woman from New France and an early convert to Roman Catholicism. Consequently, she was shunned and exiled by her animistic tribe. She died at the age of 24 after professing her vows of virginity. Known for her chastity and corporal mortification of the flesh, she is the first Native American woman to be venerated in the Roman Catholic Church. Tekakwitha was beatified by Blessed Pope John Paul II in 1980. On February 18, 2012, Pope Benedict XVI officially canonized St. Kateri at Saint Peter's Basilica on October 21, 2012.

Novena Prayer to Saint Kateri...

What did Our Lady of Emmitsburg say on this holy feast of St. Kateri?

“…Be patient with each other's failings and live in harmony with one another…. Please do not try the patience of others. You must all share in the gift of patience and self-denial to be sole heirs of God's righteousness…. Do not rejoice over the failings of others, but in meekness and in love, sow Mercy. Rejoice in what is good, not in what is evil. Pray!  (OLOE Public 07-14-94)

 

Our Lady of Emmitsburg July 14, 1994...

 

“…This is a battle, one where even though you may think you are weary and broken, you are even stronger now in your weaknesses than you were in your perfections. You will see a new change; not perhaps as you might have imagined it to be, but most definitely a victory for the Truth, which has been granted to you through what has been revealed to you through my own words….” (OLOE Private 07-14-93)

 15th Sunday in Ordinary Time—July 15, 2018

In Mark’s Gospel on this 15th Sunday in Ordinary Time, Jesus prepares the apostles to go out two by two, giving them authority over unclean spirits:

“So they went off and preached repentance….”

Too often in our modern world we may see an acknowledgement of wrongfulness and sin, an apology, and even possibly a forced retribution, but no true contrition or repentance.  Without these elements, the sinner cannot be forgiven.  Without a change in behavior and a genuine attempt to avoid the occasions of sin, the sinner remains distanced from God.

Let us recall what has been shared by God the Father in His Words to the world, Our Lord Jesus Christ in His Lessons, and Our Lady of Emmitsburg in her Messages regarding repentance:

      Repentance

Feast of St. Bonaventure - July 15

A contemporary and friend of both St. Francis of Assisi and St. Thomas Aquinas, he was elected General of his Franciscan Order in 1256 and restored perfect calm where peace had been disturbed by internal dissensions. He was widely known as the "Seraphic Doctor."

Prayer of St. Bonaventure

"Pierce, O' most sweet Lord Jesus, my inmost soul with the most joyous and healthful wound of Thy Love, and with true, calm and most holy apostolic charity, that my soul may ever languish and melt with entire love and longing for Thee, may yearn for Thee and for thy courts, may long to be dissolved and to be with Thee. Grant that my soul may hunger after Thee, the bread of Angels, the refreshment of holy souls, our daily and super substantial bread, having all sweetness and savor and ever delightful taste. May my heart ever hunger after and feed upon Thee, Whom the Angels desire to look upon, and may my inmost soul be filled with the sweetness of Thy savor; may it ever thirst for Thee, the fountain of life, the fountain of wisdom and knowledge, the fountain of eternal light, the torrent of pleasure, the fullness of the House of God. May it ever compass Thee, seek Thee, find Thee, run to Thee, come up to Thee, meditate on Thee, speak of Thee, and do all for the praise and glory of Thy Name, with humility and discretion, with love and delight, with ease and affection, with perseverance to the end; and be Thou alone ever my hope, my entire confidence, my riches, my delight, my pleasure, my joy, my rest and tranquility, my peace, my sweetness, my food, my refreshment, my refuge, my help, my wisdom, my portion, my possession, my treasure; in Whom may my mind and my heart be ever fixed and firm and rooted immovably. Amen." (Journey of the Mind to God by St. Bonaventure)

Mystical Wisdom is revealed by the Holy Spirit...

What has Our Lady of Emmitsburg said on St. Bonaventure's feast day?

“…So many people are walking away from God’s Truth… They are seeking words to fulfill their own desires and to make themselves feel good inside. They are being misled by thinking this new way of god-centering energy will bring them closer to God and intimate with the Holy Spirit…. Many are seeking various props or words to help them feel good and closer to God…. The subtlety of evil has infiltrated the world through trickery, deceitfulness, anger, malice and control…. If people walk away from God, they will not know the true Peace….”

“…Simply look to Jesus. Bow only to the crucified Jesus by gazing upon the Crucifix and the Most Blessed Sacrament, adoring Him with reverence…. The subtlety of evil has infiltrated the world through trickery deceitfulness, anger, malice and control. A forced peace is not lasting…. Peace must come from the heart. It can only come from God…” (OLOE Private 05-30-05)

Feast of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel - July 16

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. Near the end of that final apparition, Our Lady of Fatima said:

"I want to tell you that I wish a chapel to be erected here in my honor, for I am the Lady of the Rosary. Continue to say the Rosary every day...."

Then Lucia had some questions for Our Lady:

"I have many things to ask you: the cure of some sick persons, the conversion of sinners, and other things....."

"Some yes, not others. It is necessary for them to amend their lives, to ask for forgiveness of their sins.” And then with a sad expression on Her face, Our Lady said: "Do not offend God Our Lord any more, for He is already deeply offended."

Then following Our Lady’s disappearance in the immense firmament, beside the sun appeared St. Joseph with the Child Jesus and Our Lady in a blue mantle (the Holy Family), with St. Joseph and the Child blessing the world with the Sign of the Cross; then Our Lord and Our Lady as the Lady of Sorrows; and finally, Our Lady resembling Our Lady of Mt. Carmel, holding the Child Jesus in one hand and the Brown Scapular in the other. (The Rosary, family prayer, union with the suffering of Our Lord and Our Lady and the protection therein, the innocence and dependence of the Child, and the protection of a life wrapped in trust of the promises associated with the Brown Scapular - all generous gifts from Heaven to help insure our salvation, already paid for by the Child with His Mother.)

As we complete the Novena to Our Lady of Mt. Carmel begun on July 8th, let us join in the recitation of her Litany:

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!
