America Moves Closer to Being a Cashless Society

September 11, 2018

 “…Forces will undoubtedly continue nudging us toward a cashless life, which comes with plenty of benefits. Just remember that cashless spending is frictionless—it’s just a swipe of a card or a wave of your phone. So, if you’re already prone to overspending, get creative about curbing those tendencies and making sure your savings goals are on track…..”

Read the entire article.....

 

Is this what you really believe?

What has Our Lady of Emmitsburg said about the cashless society?

“…Beware of the evil subtleties currently in your midst.

Your future is being molded to surround a monetary system.

Be alert to a cashless society developing around the world

 and the forces of power which will manipulate and ultimately restrict your freedom.

If you pray, you will be able to discern what is of God with a clear mind.

If you do not return to God now

and allow Him to open the vessels of your heart

clogged by deceit and self-righteousness,

you will not be able to avoid the traps of evil.

Do not wait until God's warning strikes

the souls of every person in this world

for it will be very difficult to respond and change.

Please respond now to God's call.

There will not be much time after God's warning

for the fire of purification to befall you….”

(Our Lady of Emmitsburg, May 9, 1996)

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 Triumph of the Cross - September 14

In the Gospel from this Feast of the Triumph of the Cross, we hear Jesus say:

“And just as Moses lifted up the serpent in the desert,
so must the Son of Man be lifted up,
so that everyone who believes in Him may have eternal life.” 

(Jn 3:13-14)

However, Jesus is not lifted up on His Cross without pain and suffering. So too we must expect to be treated like Him if we believe in Him, but most often we are wrought with fear - fear of suffering and the Cross:

 

FEAR - Part III, #10
Fear of Suffering and the Cross...

 

Indulgenced Prayer Before a Crucifix

BEHOLD, O good and sweetest Jesus, I cast myself upon my knees in Thy sight, and with the most fervent de sire of my soul I pray and beseech Thee to impress upon my heart lively sentiments of faith, hope and charity, with true repentance for my sins and a most firm desire of amendment: whilst with deep affection and grief of soul I consider within myself and mentally contemplate Thy five most precious Wounds, having before mine eyes that which David, the prophet, long ago spoke in Thine own person concerning Thee, my Jesus: They have pierced my hands and my feet, they have numbered all my bones. (Psalm 21,17,18)

The Pieta - Michaelangelo - c. 1498...

Litany of the Holy Cross...

What has Our Lady of Emmitsburg said on the feast of the Cross?

"...Although the world in the beginning perceived my Son to be good, later the world was deceived; and through that deception they crucified Him. Then God the Father split the earth, and those who blasphemed Him and those who were so righteous in the church were faced with the Truth. ...The Truth will come with the Triumph of His Cross, as it did in the past and all the way through to current times. Those of you who have been devoted and loving and not presumptuous of your final fate, but humble and prayerful, and vigilant, will be able to welcome in a new era, fully trusting in God Who is all-merciful and all-glorious! What a great award for those who truly have ears to hear and eyes to see what is happening around you!“ (OLOE Private 09-14-09)

Our Lady of Emmitsburg September 14, 2009...

“Little ones, do you realize the connection between the Child Jesus and the Crucified One? You cannot have one without the other…. The transition from the ‘child' to your ‘crucified' Savior was the transition from life (as you know it) to the death of sin and to eternal life. The Child Jesus renewed the world in the hope of God's Truth with the invitation for all people to live in purity and innocence without self-seeking ways or the ways of malice, hatred and violence…. This time in history seems like much has been lost…” (OLOE Public 09-14-02)

Feast of Our Lady of Sorrows - September 15

No one knows better than Our Lord Himself the sorrow that His Mother has carried throughout her life. In His Lessons to the world, He has said:

“…My Mother has lived the sorrows you bear and, because of this, you should always call on her in your time of need. She is your Mother and patron, who shall comfort you during your sorrow... She is most powerful as your Mother of Sorrows, because she has experienced your sorrows. In your sorrow you are bonded to her Immaculate Heart, and her tears for your sorrows purify you. I tell you, the sword that pierces your hearts has pierced My Mother's Heart before your sorrow was betrothed to you! ...The sword may pierce your heart, but the edge has been dulled, because it first pierced My Mother's Heart before your own….” (JOM, Vol II, #1, 09-15-89, Mother of Sorrows)

I AM Your Jesus of Mercy:
MOTHER OF SORROWS
September 15, 1989...

The Chaplet of the Seven Sorrows...

Rosary of the Seven Sorrows of Mary...

Litany of Our Lady of the Seven Sorrows...

What has Our Lady of Emmitsburg said on the feast of Sorrows?

“Please remember, little ones, before the sword struck you, it first pierced my Immaculate Heart. A mother does not allow her children to suffer alone, for a mother who loves shares in that sorrow of her children…. Offer all your suffering for purity, peace and charity in the world…. Pray that you be open to the Truth outlined by my Son and be able to decide for God, whatever the cost. Only then can your sorrow turn into joy…. Please decide now for God, little ones, for your destiny depends on your decision. You have a choice….” (OLOE Public 09-15-94)

Our Lady of Emmitsburg September 15, 1994...

“…I am the Mother whose Heart has had the same sorrow and has felt the same pain as my Son…. My Son has given me as a gift to you and to all the peoples of the world here at the Center of my Immaculate Heart. I am here to help you, to guide you, to take your intentions and to present them to God the Father, and to direct you to the Foot of the Cross where your suffering can join with my Son's to be pure and redemptive. I am a gift, and I desire all my children to be happy that I am here and to graciously receive the gift that God has given you….” (OLOE Private 09-15-04)

Our Lady of Emmitsburg September 15, 2004...

“Little ones, if you knew the incredible sorrow in being at the Foot of my Son's Cross - His torment and the grief and the pain I endured along with Him; if you knew the depth of this, you would not be able to bear it. It truly was horrific! After His Death, my life was very much one of being alone.” (OLOE Private 09-15-08)

24th Sunday in Ordinary Time—September 16, 2018

In today’s first liturgical reading from the Book Isaiah on this 24th Sunday in Ordinary Time, we hear the confident and faithful prophet boldly proclaim:

 

“The Lord GOD opens my ear that I may hear;....
The Lord GOD is my help,
therefore I am not disgraced;
I have set my face like flint,
knowing that I shall not be put to shame.
He is near who upholds my right;
if anyone wishes to oppose me,
let us appear together.
Who disputes my right?
Let that man confront me.
See, the Lord GOD is my help;
who will prove me wrong?”

(Is 50:5-9)

It is that same confidence and faithfulness that God asks of all who truly desire to live in His Divine Will, and that particularly pertains to those who have heard and have been called to carry the message of Our Lady of Emmitsburg to this country and the world.  Then what is the problem:  FEAR!  Let us recall 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 regarding the fear of defending God’s Truth, the fear of Rejection and the fear of failure:

Fear, Part 4:  Fear of Defending God’s Truth, Rejection and Failure

Feast of St. Robert Bellarmine - September 17

Italian Bishop and Doctor of the Church

“When we appeal to the throne of grace, we do so through Mary, honoring God by honoring His Mother, imitating Him by exalting her, touching the most responsive chord in the Sacred Heart of Christ with the sweet name of Mary.”   (St. Robert Bellarmine, 1542-1621)

St. Robert was indeed one of the great thinkers of the middle ages, whose evident beneficial influence had positive contributions in the much later American revolutionary period, especially as regards human rights and the role and powers of government and the governed peoples:

St. Robert Bellarmine's Influence on the
Writing of the Declaration of Independence & Virginia Declaration of Rights...

What has Our Lady of Emmitsburg said on the great St. Robert's feast day?

“In other places in the world, my priests through their upbringing are more open to receive these graces from God; but here, though on ‘Satan's turf,'as I once before called this country (OLOE Private 01-30-04), in the most powerful nation in there world, there are Bishops fighting against not only this current Pope, but previous Popes, and fighting for eminency in what to do and to be, and leading people in a different way." (OLOE Public 05-30-96)

"I am not leaving,
because I am here
to save this country!”

(OLOE Public 05-30-96)

Our Lady of Emmitsburg September 17, 2009...

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!
