Our Lady of Emmitsburg speaks of the Purification


“…As your Mother I love you, and I will always be by your side.  I will never leave you.  It is my desire for so many people in the world to know how much God loves them; but as I have said, there are few listening; and if they do listen, it is only temporarily before their old ways come back.  Everyone desires to believe that they do not need to change, and that before the eyes of God they are all-pure.  What an awakening it will be for them when God the Father unlocks the bowls of purification!...”  (Our Lady of Emmitsburg, June 20, 2006)

Our Lady of Emmitsburg

Respect Life Sunday

October 5, 2008

“…Time as you know it is quickly passing.  What seemed a year ago to be a year away in your time, now has past.  Quickly events and circumstances rush by you.  It is hard to grasp even a moment, dwelling in the most perfect Love of God, without being distracted.  Many events have unfolded, one after another, without even enough time to focus on one before another happens.  Is that not what I have foretold to you?...”

Our Lady to Father Stefano Gobbi

May 1, 1983

“…At this time above all, I am asking you to pray with fervor and joy by means of the holy Rosary.  It is a weapon which is to be used by you today in fighting and winning this bloody battle; it is the golden chain that binds you to my Heart; it is the lightning rod that will keep far from you, and from those who are dear to you, the fire of chastisement; it is the sure means of having me always close to you.  Finally, I ask you to renew often and to live fully your consecration to my Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart….”

The Flame of Love of the Immaculate Heart of Mary
Excerpts of the Spiritual Diary of Elizabeth Kindelmann


Budapest, Hungary

 Elizabeth Kindelmann was the sole survivor of 13 children during the war and disease-ridden years of World War I in Budapest, Hungary. She lived in poverty till age 16 when she married. She had 6 children between 1931-1942, and then in 1946 her husband died, leaving her a widow with 6 children. Until 1961 she lived a life of poverty and survival, raising her children during a very difficult time. Then in 1962 she received a mystical call and a mission from Our Lord and Our Lady. Her spiritual diary was published and translated after her death, and the "Flame of Love Movement" has been approved by Bernardino Cardinal Echeveria Ruiz, Archbishop of Guayaquil, Equador, in June 1989, and the statutes of the movement approved for the whole Church on Oct. 22, 1996.

The Blessed Mother to Elizabeth regarding the Souls in Purgatory:

“…If at any time, you recite in my honor three Hail Mary's by calling upon my Flame of Love, each time a soul will be released from Purgatory. During the month of the deceased (November), upon the recitation of each Hail Mary, ten souls will be released from Purgatory….”


"Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee.
Blessed are thou among women,
and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus.
"Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners,
and spread the effect of grace
of thy Flame of Love over all of humanity,

now and at the hour of our death. Amen.”


Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary, pray for us!!!


Feast of St. Gertrude the Great - November 16

Promise of Our Lord to St. Gertrude the Great

A Prayer to Free 1000 Souls from Purgatory

Our Lord told St. Gertrude the Great that the following prayer would release 1000 souls from Purgatory each time it is said. The prayer was later extended to include living sinners as well:

"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" 
(Approved and recommended by M. Cardinal Pahiarca at Lisbon, Portugal, March 4, 1936)

Brief biography...


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

“…If you experience temptations and struggles of life, turn to Jesus…. You will never be free from the temptations of this life because there may be various circumstances, things and even people who may appeal to your weaknesses. Keep your focus on Jesus, and by humility and patience you will become strong against the strains of this life and the spiritual enemies of your soul. Correct what you can with a loving action, and bear patiently the things which cannot be remedied….” (OLOE Public 11-16-95)

“…Now understand why I have chosen the ‘strong’, yet ‘weak of spirit’, but ‘strong of will’, to continue, to lead and to follow through in times of hardship. Remember: ‘weak in spirit’ is not ‘poverty of spirit.’ ‘Weak in spirit’ means that you must fight the flesh and make an act of faith and love, a commitment to God of your free will to continue on…. As long as you remain humble, I am with you….” (OLOE Private 11-16-08)


33rd Sunday in Ordinary Time,-November 18, 2018

In the Gospel of St. Mark on this 32nd Sunday in Ordinary Time, we hear Jesus speaking to His disciples about the coming of the Son of Man:

“…But in those days after that tribulation the sun will be darkened,
    and the moon will not give its light, and the stars will be falling from the sky,
    and the powers in the heavens will be shaken. And then

they will see ‘the Son of Man coming in the clouds’ with great power and glory,

and then he will send out the angels and gather [his] elect

from the four winds, from the end of the earth to the end of the sky….”

(Mk 13: 24-27)

Let us share with you what may be the final piece of the Divine Plan.  On Dec. 22, 1996, here at the Center of her Immaculate Heart, right here in Fairfield, PA, Our Lady appeared to Gianna Sullivan in ecstasy, witnessed by 16 pilgrims in attendance, and said:

“…I invite you and I ask you for you devotion to the Infant Jesus and to pray to God the Father for the Infant Jesus’ virtues:  the virtue of humility, the virtue of wisdom, the virtue of charity, the virtue of obedience, and the virtue of simplicity in the most profound way…For it is my Son, the Child Jesus, Who will come again through the heavens; and the world will see that it is the Savior, the Child.  For the Child will save the world….”  (Our Lady of Emmitsburg, Dec. 22, 1996)

Dedication of the Churches of Sts. Peter and Paul

November 18

The two initial basilicas to honor these two great saints of the early Church were built by Emperor Constantine in the 4th century, but both later burned. St. Peter’s Basilica was rebuilt in 1626, and St. Paul’s in 1854. The Church honors these two holy sites and the saints and martyrs on whose shoulders that early Church blossomed:

Litany to St. Peter the Apostle...

Litany to St. Paul the Apostle...


What has OLOE said on this day honoring her great Sts. Peter and Paul?

“…It is a great sorrow for My Son and a pain in His Heart when people believe they can have union with God without prayer, and they do not believe in His True Presence in the Most Blessed Sacrament or in eternal life after death. Those lost souls are missing the great opportunity to know the treasure that is available within their souls. They separate themselves from God and will not be able to see Him unveiled in Heaven in all His beauty…. If your life is pleasant and filled with all the cares of living, but is exempt from prayer, you are cultivating an environment in which at the hour of your death you will be forced to understand how you refused God’s grace….” (OLOE Public 11-18-99)


Our Lady of Emmitsburg November 18, 1999...


“…This is the Center of my Immaculate Heart. This is the place in salvific history where God has chosen to unveil His Divine Mercy. It is not just another apparition site; however, it is the site for humanity to seek refuge, a site that will go down in history as the greatest place of my presence to which God has allowed me to come. Because of this, there is more controversy, conflicting data and also trivial, insignificant scrupulosity in conversations among people…. Simply detach. Wait and give. Give unconditionally to one another….” (OLOE Public 11-18-03)

The Presentation of the Child Mary - November 21

“I will put enmity between you and the woman,
and between your offspring and hers….” 

(Gen 3:15)

Private Revelation and Tradition has revealed to us that the child Mary, the only daughter of the aged Anne and Joachim, was presented at an early age and lived several years of her life in the Temple before returning to Nazareth where she would later meet Joseph. Our Lady of Emmitsburg shares with us these events of her young life:


“Everything that unfolded (many years later) with my Son in His Presentation, all the pain and sorrow, was first outlined in my life prior to even knowing my Joseph.

“There I was, a little child, going forth, given to the authorities, Immaculate and clean and pure. Even as my parents offered me to God the Father, there could be no sacrifice nor loving service as important as that of me offering my Son to God the Father. Nothing was more important than my act of offering my Son to God the Father!

“The pain and the sorrow, the indifference, the normality, and all the things we did as children, were only a page in a book, a page which was written not to remember, not even historically. There would be nothing there to bring attention to my Son's Mother.

“But I served pure and clean, and was then betrothed to a man; and once again, after my Son Jesus was born, I went to the Temple for another Presentation. The most important part of my life was hidden, hidden because no one wanted to really know what was in my Heart, and because no one would have believed even if I had told them. What a lonely walk, truly in solitude!... Ponder, think and pray!” (OLOE Private 11-21-06)

“…So as I dedicated my life to God and grew, God’s Wisdom was infused within me, allowing me to grow in knowledge, in charity, in patience and with total fidelity to God. All my virtues are virtues that you too can receive, for you also have been dedicated to God. It is difficult when you love that you must freely let go. It is difficult because there are so many levels of control and levels of assistance with which you desire to help others. But your main desire should be, as was mine, total fidelity and loyalty to God….

“…My level of care and my level of spiritual growth all came from the freely given gift my parents presented to God. How wonderful it is to love and to be loved! This allows you to pray for those who hurt you and those who speak negatively and do harm to others. This cancels out a multitude of sins, releases many from purgatory, and prevents many from going to the depths of hell….” (OLOE Private 11-21-09)

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!
