Would the world and the Church be different today if Church hierarchy had paid more attention to the warnings of Our Lord and Our Lady through the messengers of the 19th and 20th centuries? And even before?

 

Our Lady of Good Success to Mother Mariana, 1610, Equador

(speaking of the 19th and 20th centuries, 400 years in the future)

“…The Sacred Sacrament of Holy Orders would be ridiculed, oppressed and despised. The demon would labor unceasingly to corrupt the clergy and would succeed with many of them. And these “depraved priests, who will scandalize the Christian people, will incite the hatred of the bad Christians and the enemies of the Roman, Catholic and Apostolic Church to fall upon all priests. This apparent triumph of Satan will bring enormous sufferings upon the good pastors of the Church.”

“About the Sacrament of Matrimony, which symbolizes the union of Christ with His Church, she said this: “Masonry, which will then be in power, will enact iniquitous laws with the objective of doing away with this Sacrament, making it easy for everyone to live in sin. The Christian spirit will rapidly decay, extinguishing the precious light of Faith until it reaches the point that there will be an almost total and general corruption of customs. In these unhappy times, there will be unbridled luxury that would conquer innumerable frivolous souls who will be lost. Innocence will almost no longer be found in children, nor modesty in women. In this supreme moment of need of the Church, those who should speak will fall silent…..”

The Story of the Rosa Mystica Apparitions

Beginning in 1947, and continuing until the death of seer Pierina Gilli in 1991,

Rosa Mystica remains a popular favorite.  Six local bishops have expressed their belief in the appearances, but so far no official declaration has been made.

 Our Lady originally appeared in the Spring of 1947 with 3 Swords piercing her breast and said only the words: Prayer, Penance and Expiation! 

 The 3 SWORDS symbolized: lost vocations, lost grace of religious not living rigorously, and lost faith of religious leaving vocations behind to return to the world.

Let us conclude our prayers...

O Mother, You are leading the way for us in Your love for Your Son, Jesus Christ. Together with You, let us help the afflicted religious but especially our priests. They have the most sacred faculty to transform wine and bread into the Body of Your Son; they are the intermediaries between God and us; they bear the great responsibility for our souls. But we are also responsible for the Holy Church to produce holy priests. Help us through Your Immaculate Heart, O sorrowful Mother, who is burning with love for us. Amen.

We pray: 3 Our Father... 3 Hail Mary... 3 Glory be - For the sanctification of priests, bishops, and religious; for special guidance and strength for all the Patriarchs of Your Church.

Our Lady of Akita, Japan, October 13, 1973

(approved by the Church)

"As I told you, if men do not repent and better themselves, the Father will inflict a terrible punishment on all humanity. It will be a punishment greater than the deluge, such as one will never have seen before. Fire will fall from the sky and will wipe out a great part of humanity, the good as well as the bad, sparing neither priests nor faithful. The survivors will find themselves so desolate that they will envy the dead. The only arms which will remain for you will be the Rosary and the Sign left by My Son. Each day recite the prayers of the Rosary. With the Rosary, pray for the Pope, the bishops and priests.

"The work of the devil will infiltrate even into the Church in such a way that one will see cardinals opposing cardinals, bishops against bishops. The priests who venerate me will be scorned and opposed by their confreres (other priests); churches and altars will be sacked; the Church will be full of those who accept compromises and the demon will press many priests and consecrated souls to leave the service of the Lord.

"The demon will be especially implacable against souls consecrated to God. The thought of the loss of so many souls is the cause of my sadness. If sins increase in number and gravity, there will be no longer pardon for them….”

NOVENA FOR OUR NATION

August 15-October 7, 2018

Sign up for daily reflections…..

Novena For Our Nation

The time is now to call upon God, through the powerful intercession of Our Lady of the Rosary, to heal our country and return it to holiness. This is a nationwide prayer campaign called the “Novena for Our Nation.” Everyone from around the nation is encouraged to join ranks as, united, we pray the very powerful 54 Day Rosary Novena from the Feast of the Assumption on August 15 to the Feast of Our Lady of the Rosary on October 7. We continue to live in peace-less times with laws and court rulings in conflict with God's laws; especially the disregard for the rights of the unborn, elderly and weak in our society and the attacks on marriage and family values. Society and many levels of government continue to demonstrate intolerance towards biblically based religious belief and practice. In conflict with First Amendment constitutional rights, persecution of traditional religious expression has reached historically high levels. We are in a Spiritual Battle. In this centennial year of the apparitions of Our Lady at Fatima, we are called upon to help turn our country back towards God. We will accomplish that through prayer; prayer that can change hearts, change families, change our communities and change our country. There is no stronger weapon in this Spiritual Battle than the Rosary!

The 20th Sunday in Ordinary Time - August 19, 2018

 

On this 20th Sunday in Ordinary Time, in both the 1st and 2nd liturgical readings we are encourage to seek God’s Wisdom as a means to understanding His Will and being filled with His Spirit:

“…Wisdom has built her house, she has setup her seven columns…. To the one who lacks understanding, she says, Come, eat of my food and drink of the wine I have mixed! Forsake foolishness that you may live; advance in the way of understanding….’” (Prov 9:1-6)

“…Watch carefully how you live, not as foolish persons but as wise, making the most of the opportunity, because the days are evil. Therefore, do not continue in ignorance, but try to understand what is the Will of the Lord….” 
(Eph 5:15-18)

Let us ponder what Our Lord Jesus Christ in His Lessons and Our Lady of Emmitsburg in her Messages have shared with the world about the characteristics of Wisdom:

WISDOM - Part III
The Characteristics of Wisdom...

Feast of St. Bernard of Clairvaux - August 20

French Cistercian priest, Abbott & Doctor of the Church

“Look at that clever calumniator! He begins by fetching a deep sigh, he affects to be humble, and he puts on a modest look; and with a voice choking with sobs, he tries to gloss over the slander which is on the tip of his tongue. One would fancy that he expressly assumed a calm and easy demeanor; for when he speaks against his brother, it is in a tender and compassionate tone: 'I am really hurt to find that our brother has fallen into such a sin.'” (St. Bernard, 24th sermon on the Canticles)

Brief Biography of St. Bernard...

The Memorare and the Icon to Our Mother of Perpetual Help...

Litany of St. Bernard of Clairvaux...

“Give Him glory once for offences pardoned;
give it again for virtues conferred.”
 
(Sermon on Canticles of Canticles, ch. III, St. Bernard, 1090-1153)

What has OLOE said on beloved St. Bernard's feast?

“Little ones, God the Father will intervene as He sees me, His humble servant, the Mother of his Son Jesus, as He sees my arms open, looking and pleading for His intervention. He will not deny me, but He will do things in the proper sequence…. My words to you are ‘encouragement’ and to ‘move forward'…. Dress yourselves with humility. Maintain your dignity, and lend yourselves with compassion to others…. You are protected as if underneath a shield…” (OLOE Public 05-30-96)

"...What is unfolding is that you are seeing very angry people exposing their hearts and souls; and yet, you are also seeing many of my children, persistent and standing up for the Truth, continuing to move forward, and not being swayed by the wind but being firmly planted beside the Stream of the Life and Truth of my Son." (OLOE Private 08-20-05)

Our Lady of Emmitsburg May 25, 2000...

“Let no one believe that he has received the divine kiss, if he knows the truth without loving it or loves it without understanding it. But blessed is that kiss whereby not only is God recognized but also the Father is love; for there is never full knowledge without love.”

 (St. Bernard of Clairvaux)

Feast of Pope St. Pius X - August 21

“Let the storm rage and the sky darken —
not for that we shall be dismayed.
If we trust as we should in Mary,
we shall recognize in her,
the Virgin Most Powerful,
who with virginal foot
did crush
the head
of the serpent.”
 
(Pope St. Pius X, 1835-1914)

Pope Pius X speaks of the apostasy and the One World Church:

“…the great movement of apostasy is being organized in every country for the establishment of a One World Church which shall have neither dogmas, nor hierarchy, neither discipline for the mind, nor curb for the passions, and which, under the pretext of freedom and human dignity, would bring back to the world, the reign of legalized cunning and force, and the oppression of the weak, and of all those who toil and suffer…. Indeed, the true friends of the people are neither revolutionaries, nor innovators: they are traditionalists.”  (Pope St. Pius X, Letter 'Our Apostolic Mandate': to the French Episcopate, 1910)

Litany of St. Pius X...

What has OLOE said on the feast of her beloved Pope?

“…This is a time of confusion, and there are many sorrowful people in need of love. There are many people filled with interior pain, and there are many people filled with anger and disgust…. Ask Jesus for His Divine assistance and grace so that you might be an ‘apostle’ of Mercy, showing kindness and goodness to all people….” (OLOE Public 08-21-97)

Our Lady of Emmitsburg August 21, 1997...

"There is a real battle raging, a war that was once not seen by the human eye, but now has entered into an atmosphere where humanity is grasping it most powerfully as an attempt to destroy the Sacred Love and Truth of the Covenant of Our Two Hearts. Your best stance is to not be swayed and to mean what you say and say what you mean." (OLOE Private 08-21-05)

Our Lady of Emmitsburg August 21, 2005...

“Holy Communion is the shortest and safest way to heaven.” 
(Pope St. Pius X)

Feast of the Queenship of Mary - August 22

Pope Pius XII Prayer to Mary, our Queen...

Litany of Mary, Queen...

AD CAELI REGINUM

The Encyclical of Pope Pius XII proclaiming the Queenship of Mary - the feast originally proclaimed to be on May 31 and later changed to August 22 each year:

"...By this Encyclical Letter we are instituting a feast so that all may recognize more clearly and venerate more devoutly the merciful and maternal sway of the Mother of God. We are convinced that this feast will help to preserve, strengthen, and prolong that peace among nations which daily is almost destroyed by recurring crisis...."

God the Father Speaks:

“Look at your Queen! She is the Empress of the World! There is no one as pure as she is pure. She has a direct link to the Holy Trinity; and there she presents your petitions and pleads on your behalf. O' it would be wise, children of humanity, to look to her and to invite and welcome her into your communities and into your homes…. What a foolish notion it would be not to give the proper reverence in due course to such a Queen!...” (GTF 04-08-06)

Words of God the Father April 8, 2006...

Jesus speaks:

“My Most Blessed Mother is the Queen of Heaven. The angels prostrate themselves at her most holy feet, pleading with her to command them! She is the purity of My Heart. Devotion to My Mother is having devotion to Me. I listen to her and grant her Heart's desire. Her prayer is pure. Her desire is for all to seek the Kingdom of God. Her desire is service to Me and to My Father. We do not deny her. Pray to her…. Praying to her honors Me because, when you pray to her, you are praying to Me!...” (JOM, Vol I, #67, 07-10-89, Blessed Mother)

I AM Your Jesus of Mercy
BLESSED MOTHER
July 10, 1989...

What has OLOE said in the past on this Feast of her Queenship?

“…How beautiful it is to be the Queen of Heaven, because as Queen of Heaven I look to you and join you in my most Immaculate Heart and unite you with me to my Son. We shall be victorious! The Triumph is close at hand. I am so pleased and filled with joy that there are so many beloved children who choose through an act of their wills to continue to follow my Son at all costs….” (OLOE Public 08-15-04)

Our Lady of Emmitsburg August 15, 2004...

"As your Queen on this feast day, I pray with you; and at the same time, I humbly beg you as a servant, as a slave, and as the Mother of God: Come with all of your being and with all of your problems, idiosyncrasies and pains. Come, because this is the day that things are made new!" (OLOE Private 08-22-06)

Our Lady of Emmitsburg August 22, 2006...

"God created my soul, pure and without sin. He knew the great beauty that He was creating, so that my womb would be a tabernacle for my Son. There in His Joy, He was nurtured; and as He walked on this earth, He lived as you live—human, yet Divine. He so desires you to be His eyes, His hears and His mouth…" (OLOE Private 08-22-07)

Our Lady of Emmitsburg August 22, 2007...

“…I wonder if you understand the meaning of ‘Queenship.' Do you know what it entails to be a ‘queen'? Is it royalty? Is it being catered to? Is it being a role model with glamour and fame? ...Should I not be like my Son, the King - lowly, unnoticed, loving, doing all good, and devoted to the Divine Will of the Father? ...I am not inviting you to be tormented or despised, to be spat upon, to be tortured or crushed. What I am inviting you to be is by my side, within my mantle, doing all you can do to be loving and kind and detached from the way that the world can distract you and lead you away from God….” (OLOE Private 08-22-09)

Our Lady of Emmitsburg August 22, 2009...

  Feast of St. Rose of Lima - August 23
Peruvian Tertiary Dominican Virgin and Patroness of South America

"Without the burden of afflictions
it is impossible to reach the height of grace.
The gift of grace increases as the struggles increase."
 
(St. Rose of Lima, 1586-1617)

Biography and Prayers to St. Rose of Lima...

Litany of St. Rose of Lima...

 

What has OLOE said on the feast of St. Rose of Lima:

“What would the world be if my Son had given up? What would the world be if He had not been compassionate and bold, if He had not persevered with fortitude? He fought the fight…. With fear of God in your hearts you shall win the battle with me at your side. It shall be my Son who leads you and wins alongside you…. The unveiling of my Son’s Divine Mercy has commenced. Whether people want me here or not, this is the Center of my Immaculate Heart, and this is where my Son is. Humanity cannot change the Truth…” (OLOE Private 08-23-03)

Our Lady of Emmitsburg August 23, 2003...

“…God graces you with such a tremendous gift. Few people truly utilize the gift. To trust with all your heart and to believe in faith can change the world. It can move mountains. It can heal. Yet, when you do not utilize the gift of faith, it can also destroy. But to be in union with God, to be one with Him, you must trust and live God's gift of faith….” (OLOE Private        08-23-08)

Our Lady of Emmitsburg August 23, 2008...

“Would that mortal men might know how wonderful is Divine grace, how beautiful, how precious; what riches are hidden therein, what treasures, what joys, what delights! If they but knew, surely they would direct their energy with all care and diligence to procuring sufferings and afflictions for themselves. Instead of good fortune all men everywhere would seek out troubles, illness and suffering that they might obtain the inestimable treasure of grace. This is the final profit to be gained from patient endurance. No one would complain about the cross or about hardships coming seemingly by chance upon him, if he realized in what balance they are being weighed before being distributed to men.” (St. Rose of Lima)

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!
