Today’s Private Revelation from around the world as well as the very events in the world and the Church, the moral depravity and relativism in much of humanity, and the efforts to eradicate God not only from the public square but of human thought entirely, all confirm the fact that Satan and his demons are not only very active and powerful, but also very successful.  Consider how Our Lord helped St. Faustina Kowalska deal with these demons:

NOVENA FOR OUR NATION

August 15-October 7, 2018

 

Sign up for daily reflections…..

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!

Feast of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary—September 8

This day the Church celebrates the Birth of the Blessed Virgin Mary, immaculately conceived nine months earlier, and now to assume her unique role in salvation history. Please join us in this 9-day Novena, Sept. 8-16, honoring our Mother and Queen as we pray in celebration and thanksgiving for the gift of life - her life, her Son’s Life, our lives & eternal life:

Mary as “blessed among women”: by Pope John Paul II
Prayer for all the Innocent Children of the World
General Audience, September 8, 2004...

What has Our Lord in His Lessons said on His Mother's birthday?

“…My Peace is your freedom! My Peace allows you to live in this world until you see Me face to face. I promise you, child, by an oath of our intimacy, that all who desire Me, trust in Me and completely focus on Me, shall be guaranteed everlasting life for all eternity with Me, My Father, My Mother, My Joseph and all My Angels, Saints and Prophets…. I promise that whoever believes in My Mother, trusts in her words and lives them shall live in Me and receive My Mercy and life everlasting….” (JOM, Vol I, #82, 09-08-89, More on Peace)

I AM Your Jesus of Mercy:
MORE ON PEACE
September 8, 1989...

What has Our Lady of Emmitsburg said on her joy-filled birthday feast?

“…I am the Immaculate Conception, the spouse of the Holy Spirit. Your Jesus is of my flesh and blood, and I cherish the wonder of life. My Son lived this gift of Life from God to its fullest, and he desires all to live life with all its wonders, in Him…. Give yourself to God in this life on earth…. Do not wait until the moment of need arises or you will be too exhausted from the world’s yoke to carry the yoke of God…. Receive Holy Eucharist so Jesus will find great Joy in dwelling in you…. Profit by the remedy offered in Jesus as the ‘Bread of Life’…. Surrender to Love and strive to live in His Love to its fullest, living Life, living Love….” (OLOE Public 09-08-94)

Our Lady of Emmitsburg September 8, 1994...   

“If you continue to pray with a humble heart, your name is chosen to be among all the saints where a seat in His Kingdom has been reserved for you. So seek only God; and give Him glory, for He loves you. And if you desire to give me a gift, the greatest gift you can give to me is to live in humility and do all your works in Love, for Love, and through Love - that being my Son….” (OLOE Private 09-07-08)

Our Lady of Emmitsburg September 7, 2008...

“…Whenever you celebrate your birth, you know I always celebrate you; and I give God thanks for the gift of you; and I know how much you desire to celebrate me in thanksgiving to God for the gift of my life. I thank you for this, especially now in a world where life is not celebrated or cherished to its fullest, and in life where parents separate and divide and children are enticed by alcohol and drugs of all different kinds, and with technology and the sweet temptations of materialism. Their growth on a sound foundation is rare. There would never even be that trouble if the parents truly loved one another, because then the children would be infused with their love and grace.

“But my parents loved one another; and because of them, I was able to say “yes I still experienced every emotion, and I could have indeed, if I so desired, said “no.” But my fiat was enveloped within the Love of God, because I desired holiness.” Even being born with an Immaculate Heart, I still had a free will to say “yes.”; and your fiat can also be as mine….” (OLOE Private 09-07-10)

Words of God the Father - September 8, 2006

Twelve years ago today, September 8, 2006, on the Feast of the Birth of the Blessed Virgin Mary, God the Father reminds humanity of the fragility of its security in the face of its sinfulness and the prophesied tribulations”

“…There are so many of you who pray and who are committed;…

My Son warned you that a time was coming when you would see wars and famines and earthquakes and fires and weather changes, but that these would not mark the end of the world.  This time would be only the beginning, the labor pains of a new birth.  He wanted you not to see this as an end to the world….

if you are so sure that you are safe, perhaps you should look closer at your own sin, and then you may gain the fear of God….

You think that you are blanketed from all harm, then perhaps you had best look to see how in a moment's notice your life could be stripped from you….

For if all your preparations are stripped from you, then what do you have left, but nothing?  For it is only within your heart that you will find what shall sustain you---that being the true and glorious wonder of

How secure you can be at one moment; and then have your "freedom"--- God!which you call it---be stripped from you, or at least threatened….

That awesome day will come when you will understand them fully, not only the depth and the breadth of My Words, but also of your life.

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.

23rd Sunday in Ordinary Time—September 9, 2018                       In today’s Gospel from St. Mark on this 23rd Sunday in Ordinary Time, we hear the followers of Jesus who had witnessed His words and miracles say:

“He has done all things well.”

He does all things well because of His Holiness.  So too we should be able to expect a thirst for that holiness in all of God’s chosen and consecrated ones as well as all who identify themselves as “Christian.”  Perhaps this is a good time to 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 with us about the “Holiness of Jesus:”

Feast of St. Peter Claver - September 9     

Spanish Jesuit & Patron of the Black Slaves, especially in Colombia

Brief biography...

 

Prayer to Saint Peter Claver
(Our Lady of Emmitsburg, Dec. 26, 1996)

Dear Saint of our modern times, you were permeated with compassion for the oppressed, for human beings sold as slaves and treated as expendable beasts. While alleviating their natural ills, you also took away their spiritual ills, and taught them the surpassing knowledge of Christ. Inspire many of our contemporaries to become self-sacrificing missionaries like you. Amen.

What did Our Lord in His Lessons ask on this feast of St. Peter Claver?

“…Why do I seek those who are little children in simpleness and yet of little influence? Because they listen and are totally dependent on Me. In their dependency stems a solid mature spiritual character, one different and unique from each other and all people….” (JOM, Vol V, #16, 09-09-95, Little Children of Hope)

I AM Your Jesus of Mercy:
LITTLE CHILDREN OF HOPE
September 9, 1995...

What has Our Lady of Emmitsburg said on the feast of St. Peter Claver?

“Little ones, as the time approaches for both a tremendous change and great victory for my Most Immaculate Heart, I wish you to be prepared in a most astounding way; prepared so that you will be able to be the mouthpieces of my Son, and so that you will also be able to emanate from your spirits the humility and the purity of my Most Immaculate Heart…. To be humble, you must be ‘little.’ You must remove the ‘self.’ ...God is at the center of this plan, and because God loves His Church, which is named ‘Mother Church’ and where my Immaculate Heart dwells, He will reveal the Truth. The Truth must be made known, and all shall be prepared to confront error with humility but with authority, seeking only justice…. You must be able to sway like the branches in the wind. You must move with the current as the waves go in and out. If you fight it, you will be drawn out to sea and will drown. You must be able to be flexible….” (OLOE Private 09-09-03)

The Seven Sorrows of Mary - September 9-15

Join us each of the next 7 days as we ponder the Seven Sorrows of the Blessed Virgin Mary through the hearts of His saints in anticipation of the Feast of Our Lady of Sorrows on September 15:

The Promises of the Seven Sorrows of the Blessed Virgin Mary...

 

9/11

“...But the Lord raises up their foes against them
and stirs up their enemies to action….
For all this, his wrath is not turned back,
and his hand is still outstretched!

The people do not turn to him who struck them,
nor seek the Lord of Hosts.
So the Lord severs from Israel head and tail,
palm branch and reed in one day….” 

(Is 9:10-13)

On September 11, 2001, the United States experienced one of the worst tragedies in its history, with the terrorist bombing of the World Trade Centers in New York City. Our Lady of Emmitsburg did not speak specifically of this event in any recorded message until 4 years later when Gianna and her husband, Michael, were on retreat in Assisi, Italy, on September 11, 2005, on which day there was occurring in Assisi a Peace Rally:

“I love you and I bless you with all your intentions on this great day, a day of Peace, not only here, but also on this day that marks the day of Peace in your own country; for those who die with Christ, live with Christ.” (OLOE Private 09-11-05)

Our Lady of Emmitsburg September 11, 2005...

Now again, 17 years later we again approach this dreadful day in the history of the United States and the world. The dangers were again tragically brought to our attention, on September 11, 2012, when lives were again lost and scandals uncovered through the terrorist attack on the US embassy in Benghazi, Libya. What can we again expect this year? And how do we reconcile this day, September 11, past, present and future, with God’s Plan and His attempt at all costs to bring all souls back home to Himself to live a life of eternal Peace?

September 11, 2001: A day that changed the world!

Our Lord Himself cast some light on what has been for many a tragedy very difficult to understand, the bombing of the World Trade Center and the suffering and death that followed. Thus, we must always be ready, for we know not the hour:

“I in My innocence carried sorrow in My Heart for all the world. The wickedness of the world stood before Me and condemned Me. Yet, the world thought it was I who stood in sentence before them. My acceptance of their sentence was so that they would not die. I accepted the sentence of death for them, for all people, that the body might die by the sword but the soul could live forever for all those who believed in Love. …Those who believe in My salvation through My victory in death will joyously celebrate and be with their gentle God. The wicked and righteous shall be slain by their very own sword, but the innocent and meek of heart shall live for all eternity.” (JOM, Vol V, #18, 09-11-95, My Little Children, My Saints)

I AM Your Jesus of Mercy:
MY LITTLE CHILDREN, MY SAINTS
September 11, 1995...

Our Lady of Emmitsburg also adds her perspective on each of our lives here on earth in the backdrop of loss of human life on September 11, 2001:

“If there is anything for you to remember this night, remember that your possessions mean nothing; your love means everything! You can gain everything in the world, and you can think that everyone will remember you; but life goes on. Even if history documents who you are and what you have done, it means nothing; because the Kingdom of Heaven is different. There is no notoriety there, and there is no place of greatness above someone else. You do not gain a seat next to the Bridegroom and the Bride because of who you are. All that matters is Love! What you do and how you do your works of love are all that matters…. So if you are going by your own agenda and criteria…you need to look at the Life of the humble Jesus, my Son, a downcast, spit upon, unwanted, a heretic, deemed diabolical in nature and crucified. Yes, this most pure Love carried all your sins.” (OLOE Private 09-11-07)

Feast of the Holy Name of Mary - September 12

Litany of the Holy Name of Mary...

The Most Holy Name of Mary - an essay...

What has Our Lord said on this feast of Mary's Holy Name?

“…The less you realize you know, the more you gain from My Heavenly Father; for in your humility you allow Him to grace you with the knowledge of His Love…. My Father has so much to give…. Yet few seek Him and few desire to have a truly personal relationship with Him because they keep their distance from Me. There is nothing that God will not forgive in His merciful Love when a repentant heart asks for His Mercy and forgives himself….” (JOM, Vol V, #53, 09-12-95, The Path to My Father)

I AM Your Jesus of Mercy:
THE PATH TO MY FATHER
Sep 12, 1995...

What has Our Lady of Emmitsburg said on this feast of her Holy Name?

“Ponder my words, ‘My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord, for He has looked with favor on His lowly servant.' The Divine favor is His grace. God desires to fill you, little children, with His grace…. Allow His grace to fill your soul as water fills an ocean…. Do not allow His grace to fall on deaf ears through a lack of cooperation….” (OLOE Public 09-12-96)

Our Lady of Emmitsburg September 12, 1996...

“There are many children in the world who desire to come here to pray. Because they are both confused or frightened, and are not welcome, they seek other places for their nourishment and spiritual growth. But this is my Center, and all are invited. All should be welcome. Those who have caused harm should now be silenced….” (OLOE Private 12-12-03)

Feast of St. John Chrysostom - September 13

5th century Bishop and Doctor of the Church in Antioch

 “The potency of prayer has subdued the strength of fire; it has bridled the rage of lions, hushed anarchy to rest, extinguished wars, appeased the elements, expelled demons, burst the chains of death, expanded the gates of heaven, assuaged diseases, repelled frauds, rescued cities from destruction, stayed the sun in its course, and arrested the progress of the thunderbolt.” (St. John Chrysostum, 344-407 AD)

What has Our Lord said on St. John Chrysostom's feast?

“…In suffering is gained patience. If you are ostracized, it does not mean you are bearing bad fruit. Remember the false prophets were highly praised by many people. No, when you are scorned and troubled, mocked, ridiculed and slandered, the fruit you bear is fermenting from bitterness to savoring sweetness. Therefore, be at peace when God allows you to be chastised and pressed through the mill of sweet graces…. Avoid evil with silence and love. Do not partake in evil by fighting back….” (JOM, Vol V, #20, 09-13-95, The Gifts of prudence and discernment)

I AM Your Jesus of Mercy:
THE GIFTS OF PRUDENCE AND DISCERNMENT
September 13, 1995...

What has Our Lady of Emmitsburg said on this feast of St. John Chrysostum?

“…You cannot persuade or change the mind of someone who wants to do what they want to do…. I desire all of you, my children, to know that you must be more vigilant and prudent today than ever before. If you think you have connections all over the world, perhaps you had better think that they are limited and that you have none. It is better to go forward knowing that you have nothing, than to go forward thinking that you have it all. What a tremendous downfall it will be for those who feel so secure and so padded in love and affection when they find out that their ‘love’ was self-serving instead of Divine….” (OLOE Public 09-13-06)

"I do not know whether anyone
has ever succeeded in not enjoying praise.
And, if he enjoys it, he naturally wants to receive it.
And if he wants to receive it,
he cannot help but being distraught at losing it.
Those who are in love with applause have their spirits starved,
not only when they are blamed off-hand,
but even when they fail to be constantly praised."
 
(St. John Chrysostom, 344-407)

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!
