Survey Asks Women What They Needed Instead of an Abortion

“…One woman wrote that “Everything pointed to choosing abortion because of poverty, being single, being in high school, not being able to give a child a good life, it’s too hard, you will be shunned, you won’t have help, you’ll live off the government forever, no one will want you anymore….”

To the Priests, Our Lady’s Beloved Sons,

she speaks about priestly love:

“…My times, and yours, have arrived. Show yourselves to all as my little children, as priests consecrated to me, as the apostles of these last times. Your light must shine ever more brightly in the great darkness which is covering humanity and which has pervaded the Church. Let your priestly love be the sign of my motherly presence among you….

….Let your priestly love be a soothing balm on the deep and bleeding wounds of these times of yours. Go out from this cenacle and go into every part of the world, in search of my poor children who have wandered astray, and carry them all into the safe sheepfold of my Immaculate Heart. Take by the hand the children, exposed to so many dangers and victims of the subtle snares of my Adversary; give strength and courage to the youth in order to lead them away from the facile seductions of pleasure and impurity; be a support to married couples so that they may live in holiness and love, ever open to the gift of life, and thus be preserved from the great evil of divorce and abortion; bring back to the house of the Heavenly Father my many sinful children; bring assistance to the weak, comfort to the sick, hope to the despairing….,”  (Our Lady to Fr. Gobbi, July 1, 1992)

The Feast of the Immaculate Conception of Mary

December 8, 2018

Reflection of Pope John Paul II on the Immaculate Conception:

“…Immaculate Virgin, Mother of the Savior, the ages tell of your motherly presence supporting the pilgrim people on the paths of history. To you we raise our eyes and ask you to sustain us in the struggle against evil and in the effort to do good. Keep us under your motherly protection, Virgin all fair and all holy! Help us to go forward into the new millennium clothed with that humility which made you beloved above all in the sight of the Most High….”    (Pope John Paul II, Feast of the Immaculate Conception, December 8, 2000)

 

REFLECTION OF HIS HOLINESS JOHN PAUL II
ON THE SOLEMNITY OF THE IMMACULATE CONCEPTION
OF THE BLESSED VIRGIN MARY
Piazza di Spagna, 8 December 2000...

Litany of the Immaculate Conception...

 

What has Our Lord in His Lessons

said of His Immaculate Mother?

"…She is the ‘Lady' of wondrous signs. She is My Mother Immaculate, born to give birth to Him Who was sent without sin for the salvation of mankind…." (JOM, Vol IV, #10, 12-08-91, Our Lady)

I AM Your Jesus of Mercy:
OUR LADY
December 8, 1991...

The Dogma of the Immaculate Conception of Mary
Explained by Pope John Paul II as written by Pope Pius IX...

The Litany of the Immaculate Heart...

 

What has OLOE said on this,

the feast of her Immaculate Conception?

 

“Little ones, I am the Immaculate Conception. To be ‘immaculate’ is to be pure, without sin; but it does not mean that your will is free from tribulations and temptations. All people are invited to be immaculate, pure and innocent. Through the Sacrament of Reconciliation, you can also be purified from sin; but your free will is still there, accessible to any temptation. That is why your focus must be clearly, devoutly and most intently on my Son…”(OLOE Private 12-07-05)

“…How do you know your incentives are from my Son, when in your heart you are filled with anger and self-righteousness? This type of battle is between you and my Son, and I your Mother desire you to be resigned to the Will of God. You may think you have control and influence over the people of the world; but the truth is that my Son will do what He desires, and He reveals His Truth in people who are resigned to His Will in peaceful surrender and Christian love….” (OLOE Private 12-08-02)

“…All those who are holy are tried and purged so that in their temptation, they will resist Satan and offer their suffering to God. This makes them very special - saintly; and a seat in Heaven is named for them…. How beautiful it is to be little and worth nothing in the eyes of humanity! The first Eve created sin for which you bear the burden. My Son created a new Life, free from sin. All are invited! So in your little ways you can achieve a great place in Heaven, because you can stupefy the world which many believe to be a great place now….” (OLOE Private 12-08-07)

Feast of St. Juan Diego - December 9

16th Century Peasant Mexican Marian Visionary

From Our Lady of Guadalupe to Juan Diego …and to YOU!

“…Let it penetrate into your heart,
my dearest and littlest son….
Let nothing discourage you;
nothing depress you.
Let nothing alter your heart
or your countenance.
Do not fear any
illness or vexation,
anxiety or pain.
Am I not here, your Mother?
Are you not under my shadow and protection?
Am I not your fountain of life?
Are you not in the folds of my mantle,
in the crossing of my arms?
Is there anything else you need?”

St. Juan Diego - A Model of Humility...

Litany of Humility...

What has OLOE said on her faithful seer, St. Juan Diego's feast?

“…The most wonderful act of love you can give to God is to give your whole being, to be so little and detached, so humble and kind, that you fit within His Heart. There He will protect you. Never doubt the Truth of God's Love; and live today, right now, every moment, in this special blessing from Heaven. Know how He is present with you at every moment….” (OLOE Private 12-09-09)

Prayer to St. Juan Diego for Happy Employment

Dear Juan Diego, when the Lady of Tepeyac Hill gave you her picture, she also gave you a task to fill your days with happy labor. It was your privilege and joy to spend the hours caring for the chapel of the Tilma, telling its story to those who came there. Here the time of your earthly pilgrimage passed quickly and happily because you worked for Our Lady of Guadalupe.

Dear Juan Diego, please help me find steady employment that my time and talent may be devoted to the tasks suited to my nature and ability.

May my hours of toil then, give fair return and more to him who hires me. May my work not be done for mere profit, or just to make a living. Rather, may it be done to make of myself, one more able to honor the Creator. May it be done with reverence and appreciation of the materials, all supplied by God, and only modified by man. May my work be done to enjoy the benefits of skilled and honest craftsmanship.

And especially let my work be done to make known and lead others to love the same Lady you serve so well.

Through Christ Our Lord, Amen.

The 2nd Sunday of Advent - December 9, 2018

In today’s 2nd liturgical reading on this 2nd Sunday in Advent, we read St. Paul speaking to the Philippians about the importance of prayer in the work of discernment:

"Brothers and sisters:  I pray always with joy in my every prayer for all of you because of your partnership for the gospel….And this is my prayer: that your love may increase ever more and more in knowledge and every kind of perception, to discern what is of value….”

 (Phil 1:4-5,9)

Let us 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 about God’s Joy—the Joy of His Providence and His Light and the Joy in His Truth—and how the faithful have the opportunity to share in that Joy with God’s gift of discernment:

Joy, Part 2, Divine Providence, Light & Truth

What has OLOE said on this, her great feast day?

“…Humanity will never really and truly understand the mystery of God's Love. But all are called to it; and I am determined to beg and plead before God the Father, not only on your behalf, but on behalf of the entire world, so that all can know the Truth and be invited to live the same life, a Life of Love….You have every opportunity to love; and you have an even greater opportunity to stand up for the Truth, for you have become the Light and the true ambassadors for my most Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart….”(OLOE Private 12-12-05)

Our Lady of Emmitsburg December 12, 2005...

“I speak to you this night because there is suffering all over the world, people who are killing one another, people who are deceiving one another, people who are lying, people who are causing tremendous turmoil all over the world, and people who are seeking to kill. I can tell you that in this moment, even now, so many lives are at risk….” (OLOE Private 12-12-08)

Feast of St. Lucy - December 13

4th Century Virgin and Martyr, Patroness of the Blind

On this feast of St. Lucy, the Patroness of the blind, let us review what Our Lord in His Lessons said on her feast day about Fidelity. It is through blind faith that each of us will attain eternal life, and through blindness, eternal death:

Fidelity is the strongest bond to the Divine Holy Trinity through faithfulness…. Only through dedicated faith in My Father will all be deemed righteous, for this He has promised! ...It will be credited to those who do not doubt My Kingdom, for they shall be empowered by My faith and shall give great glory to My Father…. Know My Kingdom will come. Whether it comes through peaceful means or as a result of destruction through hatred will depend on you, My people….Select the path you wish to walk very carefully, for it is truly a matter of eternal life or eternal death!”  (JOM, Fidelity, Dec. 13, 1989)

I AM Your Jesus of Mercy: 
FIDELITY

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!
