IN SINU JESU

If you are already in love with Eucharistic Adoration, you will love this work of Love and Mercy.   If you want to fall in love with Our Lord, to be His friend, then do not miss the chance to ponder His words.  To make it an even more intimate experience, whenever you read “priest/priesthood,” include whichever may be most appropriate for you:  “father/fatherhood,” “mother/ motherhood,” “Your child/Your children,” etc.

 

“…So many souls make little or no progress in the holiness that I desire for them because they do not trust in My grace.  They attempt to change themselves by making use of purely human means, and forget that I am all-powerful, all-merciful, and ready at every moment to heal and sanctify those who entrust themselves, with their weakness and sins, to My most loving Heart.  I do not ask for perfection from those whom I have chosen to be My friends; I ask only that they give Me their imperfection and the burden of their sins, and allow Me to do for them what, of themselves, they are incapable of doing…”   (Our Lord to Irish Benedictine Monk, 2007)

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)

Feast of Sts. Timothy and Titus - January 26

“O Timothy, guard what has been entrusted to you.
Avoid profane babbling and the absurdities of so–called knowledge.
By professing it, some people have deviated from the faith.” 

(1 Tim 6:20)

It seems that some very human weaknesses, those of jealousy, envy and spiritual pride, have contributed to the failure of dissemination to the world of many of the heavenly gifts that have been given through many of God’s messengers and seers. These weaknesses have expressed themselves among clergy, religious and laity. Our Lord in His Lessons spoke about jealousy and envy on this Feast of Sts. Timothy and Titus in January 1989:

"…Jealousy is pure hatred for one another! Envy is the path towards jealousy, which hardens your heart…. It is envy which is the destructive poison. It leads to hardened hearts, jealous and a merciless people.”

I AM Your Jesus of Mercy:
JEALOSY
January 26, 1989...

“…Envy closes My people’s hearts! It is envy which destroys your life. It is Love which gives you Life. I your Lord am Life, for I am Love! Focus on Me. Center your life on Me, and envy will be destroyed…. Allow envy to flow out of your lives, and Love to flow into your lives….”

I AM Your Jesus of Mercy:
ENVY
January 24, 1989...

What has Our Lady of Emmitsburg said on the feast of St. Paul's disciples?

“…I have tried to teach you and guide you in the ways of My Son, pleading that you would not seek ways of power and worldly goals, but that which is Divine. Many continue to take lightly my requests…. Please take seriously my words. Your eternal life depends on your heart’s desire…. Remember, my little ones, Jesus is Mercy; but if you will not accept His Mercy, He will have no choice than to be a God of Justice….” (OLOE Public 01-26-94)

Our Lady of Emmitsburg January 26, 1994...

The 3rd Sunday in Ordinary Time - January 27, 2019

“…The spirit of the Lord is upon me, because the Lord hath anointed me:

he hath sent me to preach to the meek, to heal the contrite of heart,

and to preach a release to the captives,

and deliverance to them that are shut up.

To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord,…”

(Isaiah 61:1-2)

 

In today’s Gospel according to St. Luke, we hear Our Lord in the synagogue at Nazareth, after reading Isaiah’s prophetic words, proclaim:

 

“Today this Scripture is fulfilled in your hearing.”

(Lk 4:21)

 

So too, in this end of an era, we have seen the following prophesied fulfilled:

 

 “…And the Lord, the God of their fathers, sent to them

by the hand of His messengers, rising early and daily admonishing them:

because He spared His people and His dwelling place…”

(2 Chron 36:15)

 

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 about their perseverance in sending their messengers in order to help assist God in sparing His people:

 

      Perseverance I:

The Perseverance of the Father, the Son and the Spouse of the Holy Spirit

Feast of St. Thomas Aquinas - January 28

Italian Dominican Priest and Doctor of the Church,

Patron of Schools (1225-1274)

"To one who has faith, no explanation is necessary.
To one without faith, no explanation is possible."

(St. Thomas Aquinas)

Today the Church celebrates the feast of one of its greatest scholars and saints who is also a "Doctor" of the Church. How timeless is one of his prayers, yet so appropriate today:

Prayer for Forgiveness
(St. Thomas Aquinas, 1225-1274)

To You, O God, Fountain of Mercy, I come, a sinner.
May You wash away my impurity.
O’ Sun of Justice, give sight to the blind.
O’ Eternal Healer, cure the wounded.
O’ King of Kings, restore the despoiled.
O’ Mediator of God and man, reconcile the sinful.
O’ Good Shepherd, lead back the straying.
O’ God, have pity on the wretched, show leniency to the guilty;
Bestow life on the dead, reform the impious;
And give the balm of grace to the hard of heart.

O’ most merciful God,
call back the one who flees;
Draw back the one who resists,
lift up the one who falls;
Support the one who stands,
and accompany the one who walks.

Do not forget those who forget You.
Do not desert those who desert You.
Do not despise those who sin against You.

For in sinning,
I have offended You, my God;
I have harmed my neighbor;
I have not even spared myself injury.

I have sinned, O my God,
against you, Almighty Father,
because of my weakness;
Against You, all knowing Son,
because of my ignorance;
Against You, merciful Holy Spirit,
because of my malice.
Thus have I offended you most high Trinity.

Woe to me, a pitiful soul!
How many, how great, and how diverse
are the sins I have committed.

I abandoned You, Lord.
I question Your goodness,
By yielding to evil cravings
and weakening myself with harmful fears.

By such things, I preferred to lose You
rather than abandon what I desired,
To offend You rather than face
what ought not to be feared.

O my God, how much harm have I done by word and deed,
And by sinning secretly, openly and defiantly.

Therefore, out of my weakness
I beg you not to pay heed to my iniquity,
But rather to Your immense goodness.
And I beg you mercifully to pardon what I have done,
Granting me sorrow for my past actions
and precaution in the future.
Amen
.

What has Our Lord in His Lessons said on the feast of St. Thomas?

“…If My people obeyed Me by trusting in Me, they would be released from their fear which enslaves them…. Obedience is being open to My words, accepting them and allowing My Love to mold you into eternal perfection. Obedience is growth, and growth is accompanied by imperfections and failings! These shortcomings perfect you when you allow Me to strengthen you and teach you…. If you allow pride to enter and control you, it will deceive you; and it will destroy the seed of obedience….” (JOM, Vol II, #41, 01-28-90, Obedience)

I AM Your Jesus of Mercy:
OBEDIENCE
January 28, 1990...

 

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

“…The society in which you live has lent itself to a fast-paced, ‘me’ first lifestyle. There is no quick fix for what took years to destroy, namely the family bond, morality, peace, simplicity, and the treasures of prayer, sharing love and unity. God has been offended…. You must learn to ask and receive in humility, not demand or spurn His Mercy…. It can only change with the grace of God, with His Mercy, and with the willingness of His beloved ones to surrender to God’s Way, to accept His desires, to become little, to pray, and perhaps even to suffer; if that is what God asks in order to soften the direct attacks against the Blessed Trinity….” (OLOE Private 05-30-05)

Our Lady of Emmitsburg January 28, 1999

"Grant me
O Lord my God,
a mind to know you,
a heart to seek you,
wisdom to find you,
conduct pleasing to you,
faithful perseverance in waiting for you,
and a hope of finally embracing you.
Amen."
 
 (St. Thomas Aquinas)

Feast of St. Don Bosco - January 31

Italian Priest, “Apostle of Youth,” & Religious Founder

 

“Do good while you still have time!”
(St. Don Bosco, 1815-1888)

St. Don Bosco’s Prophecy & Novena – January 31st to February 8

Join us as we pray to this great saint and ponder his end times prophesy in this 9-day Novena to him. St. Don Bosco was a prophet and a mystic who foresaw this critical time in salvation history!

The Prophecy of St. Dom Bosco….

Novena to St. Don Bosco….

 

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

“…The prophecy of my son, St. Don Bosco, is now unfolding; and you living within this time period are witnessing its Truth with your own eyes….” (OLOE Public 01-31-05)

Our Lady of Emmitsburg January 31, 2005...

“I do not think that many people realize the connection between the Feast of St. Don Bosco and my invitation for you to come to the Center of my Immaculate Heart (Jan. 31, 1993); both because of his interaction with and heartfelt works for the children which gave God tremendous glory, along with his prophecy (in 1862) that through adoration of the Most Blessed Sacrament there would be a renewal in the world.…” (OLOE Private 01-31-07)

Our Lady of Emmitsburg January 31, 2007...

“…There are people on other continents who are willing to die for what they believe in truth, and they do!... I am here to help you, not to be shunned by you…. If you think any war in this world has been devastating up to this point, you have not witnessed what will come without change. You can dismiss only so much; however, you had best be prepared to answer for what you yourself have done….” (OLOE Public 01-31-08)

Our Lady of Emmitsburg January 31, 2008...

“And no matter how many people think that you are corrupt or diabolical or dishonest or planning to deceive, God knows and sees the truth; for He is the Truth! Everyone must answer to God, and He says, ‘Tell them, tell them Who sent you. Tell them I AM sent you.” (OLOE Private 01-31-09)

Our Lady of Emmitsburg January 31, 2009...

Prayer of St. Don Bosco for Protection against Demons

O’ Mary, powerful virgin, you are the mighty and glorious Protector of the Church. You are the marvelous Help of Christians. You are terrible as an Army set in Battle Array. You alone have destroyed every heresy in the entire Church. In the midst of my anguish, my struggles and my distress, defend me from the power of the enemy, and at the hour of my death, receive my soul into Paradise. Amen.

Prayer of St. Don Bosco to Mary

Most holy Virgin Mary, Help of Christians, how sweet it is to come to your feet imploring your perpetual help. If earthly mothers cease not to remember their children, how can you, the most loving of all mothers forget me? Grant then to me, I implore you, your perpetual help in all my necessities, and every sorrow, and especially in all my temptations. I ask for your unceasing help for all who are now suffering. Help the weak, cure the sick, convert sinners. Grant through your intercession many vocations to the religious life. Obtain for us, O’ Mary, Help of Christians, that having invoked you on earth, we may love and eternally thank you in heaven. Amen.

“This was the method
that Jesus used with the apostles.
He put up with their ignorance and roughness
and even their infidelity.
He treated sinners with a kindness and affection
that caused some to be shocked,
others to be scandalized,
and still others to hope for God’s Mercy.
And so He bade us to be gentle and humble of heart.”

(St. Don Bosco)

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!
