St. Michael’s Flaming Sword

“…Blessed Catherine Emmerich (1774 – 1824) often saw St. Michael with a flaming sword.  As the rosary is a weapon and the Word of God a two-edged sword (Hb 4:12), so here on earth the real St. Michael’s flaming sword is none other than the St. Michael prayer.  Pope Leo XIII composed this minor exorcism/deliverance prayer after his vision on October 13, 1884, of St. Michael fighting the dragon and his angels at the end of times.  By 1886 the entire Catholic Church was reciting this fiery prayer at the end of every Mass….”

A Message to Humanity from St. Michael the Archangel

April 2, 2018 through Ned Dougherty

“…They (demons) are particularly virulent in these end times in their attempts to destroy the spirit and soul of many of God's children so that you must be most vigilant now to interfere with the evil one and his intentions by calling upon the name of Jesus to defeat any infestation or possession by the evil one and his demonic spirits upon any and all of you who are God's children.

I as Michael the Archangel, the defender of all of God's children, call upon all of you to invoke the following prayer to thwart and destroy the evil spirits, demons, and minions of satan who are attempting to infest and infect humanity to destroy the spirits and souls of God's children.

The evil one and his minions will not be successful in their plans to attack and infest, and even possess you, if you invoke the following prayer and command, repeatedly and frequently, as I command that you direct the following prayer against satan, his evil minions, and all of the evil spirits and entities that are now attacking all of you here on Earth. Repeat the following prayer to protect yourselves:

 

"In the name of Jesus Christ!

I command you...

I compel you...

I expel you...

from my mind and body,

spirit and soul!"

Feast of the Archangels - September 29, 2018

Saint Michael the Archangel Prayer...

Litany to St. Michael the Archangel...

Litany of St. Gabriel...

Litany of St. Raphael...

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

“On this special feast day, reflect how holiness is the basis of dignity. Holiness does not depend on extraordinary gifts with which you are graced. It is a direct response to your fidelity in your duties to God.” (OLOE Public 09-29-94)

Our Lady of Emmitsburg September 29, 1994...         

“If a person lives within the grace of God, that soul is with God forever! If a person denies God's Love and does not accept His graces, then an alternative path is chosen for that soul. There is a Heaven; there is a Hell; and there is a place where a soul is purged to become beautiful, to then be with God forever. What is important is what you do in your life now, and how you behave and love God. Even if you have faults and even though you sin, you can reconcile and give back to God…. May God bless you! And with all the Angels of all the heavenly Court and with the Blessed Holy Trinity, as your Mother I am pleased and humbled to be yours….”   (OLOE Private 09-29-09)

26th Sunday in Ordinary Time—September 30, 2018

In today’s Gospel from St. Mark on this 26th Sunday in Ordinary Time,

Jesus says to his disciples:

 

“…Better for you to enter into the Kingdom of God with one eye

than with two eyes to be thrown into Gehenna, where

‘their worm does not die, and the fire is not quenched.’….”

(Mk 9:48)

 

In today’s Gospel Jesus warns of the consequences of not avoiding the occasions of sin.  However, it seems apparent to much of humanity that there is no such thing as sin, thus no consequences.  Let us recall what has been shared with us 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 about the existence of not only SIN, but the existence of HELL:

 

     Evil, Part 4: Hell

 

Only One Week Left!

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 St. Therese of Lisieux - October 1

St. Therese of the Child Jesus, the Little Flower
French Carmelite Nun and Doctor of the Church

 

“I can nourish myself on nothing but Truth.”
(St. Therese of Lisieux, 1873-1897)

“I know now that true charity consists
in bearing all our neighbors' defects
- not being surprised at their weakness,
but edified at their smallest virtues.”
 
(Story of a Soul: The Autobiography of St. Therese of Lisieux)

 

Novena to St. Therese of Lisieux

October 1 through October 9

Join us as we pray the 9-day Novena  and Litany to the Little Flower, St. Therese of Lisieux, for Mother Church and its shepherds in union with Pope Benedict XVI, that they may be open to God's grace to lead the faithful through 'this end of an era' and into the era of peace.

Novena to St. Therese of Lisieux

The Litany and Prayer to the Little Flower...

 

What has Our Lord said on the feast of Therese of Holy Childhood of Jesus?

“Do not allow people of man's power to frighten you! Remember, I am God and I will protect you. If it is in the Will of My Father, it shall be done accordingly. You only need to live in simpleness and focus on Me. There is nothing more to be done. When it is My Father's desire, His Will is done as He deems fit. Pray for all, and live by actions of simpleness and loving kindness….” (JOM, Vol IV, #1, 10-01-91, My Glory)

I AM Your Jesus of Mercy:
MY GLORY
October 1, 1991..
.                                           

 

What has Our Lady of Emmitsburg said on the feast of the Little Flower?

“All are invited - all nations and all creeds! For true Peace and unity to exist, Love must be at the center, at the beginning and at the end…. All are welcome! All can be as prophets if they but open their hearts to Love - to give Love, to receive Love, and to know Love, Who is God Himself….”

“…I assure you, children, that the devil exists; and he desires to hurt you! In his rage he desires to attack and destroy anything and anyone that gives God glory in His creation…. Be aware, and join together in unity. Protect yourselves and blanket yourselves through prayer, often seeking the Sacrament of Reconciliation. Be pure, avoiding things that lead to sin. Purify yourselves, and all shall be made new....” (OLOE Public 10-01-06)

Our Lady of Emmitsburg October 1, 2006...       

“Let us work together for the salvation of souls; we have only the one day of this life to save them and thus to give the Lord proofs of our love. The tomorrow of this day will be eternity, and then Jesus will restore to you a hundredfold the very sweet and very legitimate joys that you sacrificed for Him.” (From a letter by St. Therese)

“O Jesus, Who in Thy cruel Passion didst become the ‘Reproach of men and the Man of Sorrows,' I worship Thy Divine Face. Once it shone with the beauty and sweetness of the Divinity; now for my sake it is become as the face of a leper. Yet in that disfigured Countenance, I recognize Thy infinite Love, and I am consumed with the desire of loving Thee and of making Thee loved by all mankind. The tears that streamed in such abundance from Thy Eyes are to me as precious pearls which I delight to gather, that with their infinite worth I may ransom the souls of poor sinners.

O Jesus, Whose Face is the sole beauty that ravishes my heart, I may not behold here upon earth the sweetness of Thy Glance, nor feel the ineffable tenderness of Thy Kiss, I bow to Thy Will; but I pray Thee to imprint in me Thy Divine Likeness, and I implore Thee so to inflame me with Thy Love, that it may quickly consume me and I may soon reach the Vision of Thy glorious Face in Heaven. Amen.” (St. Therese of Lisieux, 1873-1897)

Feast of the Guardian Angels - October 2

Prayer to the Guardian Angel

Angel of God, My Guardian Dear,
To Whom God's Love commits me here.
Ever this day be at my side
To light, to guard,
To rule and guide. Amen.

What has Our Lady of Emmitsburg said on this feast of Guardian Angels who are there with us as we receive Our Lord in the Eucharist?

“Why is it that my saints were able in the Eucharist to not only be enhanced but to see my Son as a Child and live in communion with Him? Why? Because they believed and they saw what all of humanity can see…. If each person in this world believed that in this act of Consecration there is my Son, then all of humanity would be at peace at this moment, and not one human eye could gaze upon Him without each person being prostrate.”(OLOE Private 10-02-03)

Our Lady of Emmitsburg October 2, 2003...

“…The Angels are tremendous gifts from God. They intercede for you, and they protect you. The Angels are real. The Angels protect countries. The Angels were with me during my life on earth…. This is why it is so important that my Son Said, ‘Let the children come unto Me.' (Mt 19:14) Angels are like children. They love and are pure, pure in spirit and there to guide you. My Son said, ‘Unless you turn and become like children, you will not enter the Kingdom of Heaven.' (Mt 18:3) Angels, my children are pure and holy in spirit, guiding, protecting and assisting you, and praying that you follow and live in God's Divine Will....” (OLOE Private 10-02-03)

Our Lady of Emmitsburg October 2, 2006...

“…Never be afraid, children, to push, to challenge, to prod and to make people feel uncomfortable because they are afraid to take a risk for God when you know it is from my Son. And even if you do not know it is from my Son, do not be afraid, because the Divine Will shall unfold for those who are humble and who completely, unreservedly give themselves to God…”(OLOE Private 10-02-07)

Feast of St. Francis of Assisi - October 4

Italian Religious Brother, Founder, Mystic

“I have been all things unholy.
If God can work through me,
He can work through anyone.” 

(St. Francis of Assisi, 1181-1226)

Prayer of St. Francis of Assisi

Lord, make me an instrument of Thy peace;
Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
Where there is injury, pardon;
Where there is doubt, faith;
Where there is despair, hope;
Where there is darkness, light;
And where there is sadness, joy.
O' Divine Master,
Grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console;
To be understood, as to understand;
To be loved, as to love.
For it is in giving that we receive;
It is in pardoning that we are pardoned,
And it is in dying that we are born to Eternal Life.
Amen.

 

Instrument of Peace (Beautiful Music Video) by Olivia Newton John...

 

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

“Peace comes at a great price, and that price often involves suffering for the injustices which have been done against God. Suffering results because of the injustices from human hands which humanity allows; however, I will be victorious! (OLOE Private 10-04-05)

Our Lady of Emmitsburg October 4, 2005...

“…I can see all of your suffering. You have carried your cross and have endured pain for your families…. It is difficult in this day and age, a time when there is today much confusion and complex circumstances facing children - your children! Be strong and know that I have taken all of your family members into my most Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart. Because of your faith and your tremendous selfless love, they will be renewed. What seems as if they have strayed, is not actually how it will end….” (OLOE Private 10-04-08)

Our Lady of Emmitsburg October 4, 2008...

“…Do not be afraid in where I have led you. Do not be afraid of any person within the Church or without. All are united in one if they are united to God…. So many people suffer; and through their suffering they are weakened because they are not faithful. Perhaps through no fault of their own, they do not know, so they feel abandoned. God is being stripped more and more away from the lives of humanity. What will happen when He comes again? Can you imagine the fear of living without Love?.” (OLOE Private 10-04-09)

St. Francis of Assisi's Prayer of
Praise to Mary, the Mother of Jesus

Hail, holy Lady, most holy Queen
Mary, Mother of God, ever Virgin.
You were chosen by the Most High Father in Heaven
and consecrated by Him,
with His most Holy Beloved Son and
the Holy Spirit, the Comforter.
On you descended and still remains
all the fullness of grace and every good.
Hail, His Palace.
Hail, His Tabernacle.
Hail, His Robe.
Hail, His Handmaid.
Hail, His Mother,
and Hail, all Virtues,
who by grace and inspiration of the Holy Spirit,
are poured into the hearts of the faithful,
so that from their faithless state,
they may be made faithful servants of God through you.
Amen.

Litany to St. Francis of Assisi...

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!
