Abortion Leading Cause of Death Worldwide in 2018

Killing 42 Million People

As of December 31, 2018, there have been some 41.9 million abortions performed in the course of the year, Worldometers revealed. By contrast, 8.2 million people died from cancer in 2018, 5 million from smoking, and 1.7 million died of HIV/AIDS.

And what does Our Lord Himself have to say about this

as we enter this much anticipated New Year in these End Times?

“…As a child of the Father in Heaven, each and every one of you came into this world imbued with the Eternal Love of the Father in Heaven with the ability through His Love to make a difference for humanity in a positive way, for such is your mission in life to make a difference in this world for the betterment of mankind.

Knowing this now, I ask you to contemplate the damage that has been caused to humanity by the needless slaughter of so many of God's children in their mother's womb throughout the centuries, but even more so in this day and age when so many of God's children who were intended to live in this world have had their own journey terminated by the hand of mankind in direct violation of the Father's command that all life is sacred and that every child formed in the womb has a very important mission and journey that should not be terminated by your hands.

As a result, there is so much darkness and despair in your world now caused by the accumulation of so much debt owed by humanity to the Father in Heaven through the sin of abortion.

Look around you now, each and every one of you, and tell me you are not aware that the anger and violence of mankind are not increasing throughout the world. As a people, you are being divided among yourselves by the dark forces of the evil one who is my eternal enemy. It is through the evil one that the killing of the young has become an accepted norm in your so-called modern society and this problem is endemic globally due to the action of those who are attempting to institute a new world order in contradiction of the plan of the Father in Heaven. Abortion is essential to their wicked plan.

As Powerful Prayer Warriors, you must stand against this international genocide of many of God's children and recognize that this global new world order is the work of the evil one, satan, who is hell-bent to destroy humanity through his design for a new world order. His minions here on earth are doing his bidding. Abortion is one of their greatest tools to destroy humankind, and to spit in the face of the Father in Heaven, and to smite His loving plan for mankind.

In these end times, there are so many prayerful calls to change humanity for the better, but none of these calls for prayer are as important as your being called to prayer to end the genocide of so many of God's children who are intended to become part of your world in these end times to thwart the evil one and his minions and to cast them into the bowels of the earth for all eternity to bring about the Great Transformation of humanity and to usher in a New Heaven and a New Earth…..”  (Jesus the Redeemer through Ned Dougherty, January 1, 2019)

January 2019

The Month Dedicated
to
the Holy Name of Jesus

Reflection:

Jesus died and rose for the sake of all people. No one can trademark or copyright Jesus’ name. Jesus is the Son of God and son of Mary. Everything that exists was created in and through the Son of God (see Colossians 1:15-20). The Name of Jesus is debased if any Christian uses it as justification for berating non-Christians. Jesus reminds us that because we are all related to him we are, therefore, all related to one another.

“...How blessed His Name! All peoples in all nations can see the Face of God and adore Him. Strive to be meek and humble of heart, and then you shall meet Jesus in the faces of your peers and many other peoples of all nations…. I pray that you will have my eyes to adore my Son, and my Heart to love Him as I love Him, and my humility to follow Him at all costs. Be strong and filled with faith, for my adorable Son is yours…. I bless you in His most glorious, omnipotent and adorable Name - a Name to which all shall bow on bended knee….” (Our Lady of Emmitsburg, Private 01-04-09)

Am I a Roman Catholic?

If asked on an application or on a hospital admission form, “Religion,” what does it require for me to honestly answer that question, “Catholic”? Fr. Michael Miller, President of University of St. Thomas in a 2003 homily answered an important part of that question as it regards to Life:

Feast of the Baptism of Our Lord - January 13, 2019

“I am baptizing you with water, for repentance,
but the One who is coming after me is mightier than I.
I am not worthy to carry his sandals.
He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire….” 

(Mt 3:11)

In the 2nd liturgical reading from St. Paul’s Letter to Titus on this Solemnity of the Baptism of Our Lord, we read:

“…The grace of God has appeared, saving all and training us to reject godless ways and worldly desires and to live temperately, justly, and devoutly in this age, as we await the blessed hope, the appearance of the glory of our great God and savior Jesus Christ, Who gave Himself for us to deliver us from all lawlessness and to cleanse for Himself a people as His own, eager to do what is good….” (Titus 2:11-14)

The godless ways and the worldly desires of the time which St. Paul describes seem to be magnified a thousand-fold (or more) in the times in which we live at the end of this era. And we too are awaiting with blessed hope the return of our Savior Jesus Christ, the Child Jesus, in a spiritual Eucharistic Reign—a wait which requires heroic perseverance, a wait that will usher in the Era of Peace.

Let us ponder what Our Lord Jesus Christ in His Lessons and Our Lady of Emmitsburg in her Messages have shared with us regarding that “perseverance” in prayer, faith, hope, love and Truth:

 

PERSEVERANCE - Part 2
Prayer & Faith...

 

What has Our Lady of Emmitsburg said on her Son's Baptismal feast?

“Now is the time embarking upon the world when humanity will know the Truth of Christ…. The world will also know of the truth of the Triumph of the Immaculate Heart and that my Son has come not only as a Child, as a Salvific Savior, but as the Child who will rule the world in Truth in the beginning of the new era. Not all people understand the meaning of the Child, and they also do not understand that to be a “child” one has to be born through the Holy Spirit in the purity of the womb, to come forth to bear the Cross as did the Salvific Savior; and as one takes this Cross, not the entire Cross itself, but only one little sliver of the Cross, it will be revealed to each soul the Truth of Who My Son is….

“…Everyone is looking for a magnificent, triumphant new beginning. Yes, the new beginning is unfolding, triumphant indeed; but the way God works throughout history and in this very time is always magnificently mysterious. The mystery of Christ’s Love is such that all can live in their faith and rise to a new beginning where all shall know that they have been created in the oneness and likeness of the Triune God….” (OLOE Private 01-12-03, The Feast of the Baptism of Our Lord)

“…Remember: ‘Littleness’ is greatness, and to be great you can be the tiniest atom that hides within my Son’s Heart. There you are protected. God did not need me, He chose me; and as He does not need anyone, He chooses you. Why! Because He loves you in His Plan for the fulfillment of ‘life’ and the salvation of humanity….” (OLOE Private 01-10-10)

Pope Benedict XVI on the Baptism of Jesus

“…The Baptism of Jesus at the Jordan is the anticipation of His Baptism of Blood on the Cross, and it is a symbol of the entire sacramental activity by which the Redeemer will bring about the salvation of humanity….” (Pope Benedict XVI, Angelus Homily, 01-07-07, The Feast of the Baptism of the Lord)

Feast of St. Anthony, the Abbott - January 17

4th century Egyptian Christian and hermit (+356)

 

Brief biography and details of his battles with demons….

 

PRAYER TO ST ANTHONY THE ABBOT

Dear God, St. Anthony the Abbot accepted your call to renounce the world and to love you above all things. He faithfully served you in the solitude of the desert by fasting, prayer, humility and good works. In the Sign of The Cross, he triumphed over the Devil. Through his intercession, may we learn to love you better; with all our hearts, all our souls, all our minds, all our strength and to love our neighbors as we love ourselves. St. Anthony the Abbot, great and powerful saint, grant us also this special request [...]. We ask this through our lord Jesus Christ, who lives and reigns with God the Father and the Holy Spirit. One God forever and ever, Amen.

What has OLOE said on this feast of beloved St. Anthony, the Abbot?

“…Where I am, there must also be confusion. This is what true persecution entails, and it also validates the authenticity of my presence. It is not who is right or who is wrong that is most important, but rather that all of this will unfold for the greater glory of God so all will see where the Truth lies….” (OLOE Private 01-17-07)

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 every day. 
Merciful God, please spare America!
O Immaculate Heart of Mary,
Pray for us!
