"Thou shalt not commit adultery."
(Ex 20:14)

ACT OF LOVE

 (Imprimatur N. 26, Vicariatus Romae 29.11.2013)

 

Jesus, Mary (& Joseph), I love You!

Save priestly souls, save souls.

We beseech you: Grant us to repeat this Act of Love

a THOUSAND times, with our every breath,

with our every heartbeat.

 

(This prayer has been delivered by the Savior

to the German Mystic Justine Klotz (1888-1984),

to renew the world.)

 

 

Jesus told Justine that by praying this Act of Love with love,

"that this prayer remains within us and is like a clock that never stops." 

A prayer that is "unceasing" with our breaths and our heartbeats!

 

"…The Act of Love the Savior told to Justine: “I’ll show you the omnipotence of My Love: This Is My Mercy. I give you the word 'thousand.' It has never been this way! It is a gift of love of my divine soul… Everyone is called to make this ACT OF LOVE. This is why it has to be spread and let be spread. It will become a giant flame, I promise you. Start with courage and always include the word “THOUSAND”!...I have placed my Mercy in it. MERCY stirs up LOVE. It is a luminous way. Love without measure! This love will be the breath of every soul. I will reopen many hearts that were already petrified. Only my mercy can still save them. For this I gave the ACT OF LOVE. And never fall asleep without it! My Mother is by your side in the battle against hell. How my Mother cried for the sake of souls! It is for Her that I established the Act of Love, so infinitely great for each soul, and forever. The Mother with a grieving soul, for priests and for the people. The Spirit will sustain them. My Soul is the marvelous Power of Love! Everything is possible with Love. Love raises everything up to the Father...The Holy Spirit is visible in the triumph. This is how I want to unite you, as it has always been. They will recognize God better. (It is) a gift of the Holy Spirit...It is as an act of consecration to my love; as at Holy Mass. The angels are always present….” 

 

(God Speaks to the Soul, Our Lord to Justine Klotz)

 

AND WHY IS THIS NOW SO IMPORTANT

IN THE WORLD AND IN THE CHURCH?

 

 

ANATOMY OF A COVERUP:

Francis, Vatican Exposed

By Christopher A. Ferrera

Christopher A. Ferrara (born New York, 6 January 1952) is a Roman Catholic attorney, pro-life activist, and journalist. He is the founder and current president of the American Catholic Lawyers Association. He is also a regular columnist of The Remnant, a traditionalist Catholic newspaper.

 

Conclusion: The Need for Anger

…The reader might conclude that this piece seems designed to arouse anger toward its subjects.  And so it is, because there is incumbent upon us a positive duty to be angry about the crimes these men have committed or covered up and the abuses of authority that have facilitated the homosexual infiltration of the priesthood, the episcopate and even the College of Cardinals…..

“….It is fitting to conclude with the words of Pope Leo XIII (quoting Pope Felix III) in Inimica Vis concerning the duty of Christians to oppose error and to shame into action those who timidly refuse to do so. While the context is a condemnation of the evils of Freemasonry, Leo’s teaching is no less applicable here:

“An error which is not resisted is approved; a truth which is not defended is suppressed.... He who does not oppose an evident crime is open to the suspicion of secret complicity.” By reminding them of the examples of their forefathers, the broken spirits of these men must be reanimated with that courage which is the guardian of duty and dignity alike, so that they may be ashamed and regret their cowardly actions. For surely our whole life is involved in a constant battle in which our salvation itself is at stake; nothing is more disgraceful for a Christian than cowardice….”

 

Read the entire article….

 

…Or do you not know that

the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God?

Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters,

nor adulterers,…nor homosexuals,  nor thieves, nor the covetous,

nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers,

will inherit the kingdom of God….”

(1 Cor:9:10, NASB)

And the final word goes to Our Lady of Emmitsburg:

“Look to the Holy Family as your example.  Children today are facing tremendous confusion and destructive circumstances from being surrounded by this horrible abomination from sexuality of the same gender…In order for the family to triumph,

each family must pray every day as a family for the family….” (OLOE, May 23, 1996)  “The dignity of every human being is being threatened today because of modern issues of human sexuality; and if you follow the true Way of My Son, the Christ Child, then you will be ridiculed in society…”  (OLOE, Dec. 23, 1999)  “…So few people truly desire to pray, to know the Truth, and to really know my Son.  But a holy family can grow in holiness through acceptance of the grace and acceptance of each of their own weaknesses….”  (OLOE, Dec. 27, 2003)

February 2019

The Month Dedicated to the Holy Family

“…But while he thought on these things,
behold the angel of the Lord
appeared to him in his sleep, saying:
“Joseph, son of David,
fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife,
for that which is conceived in her,
is of the Holy Ghost…” 

(Mt 1:20)

 

Consecration to the Holy Family

O Jesus, our most loving Redeemer, who having come to enlighten the world with Thy teaching and example, didst will to pass the greater part of Thy life in humility and subjection to Mary and Joseph in the poor home of Nazareth, thus sanctifying the Family that was to be an example for all Christian families, graciously receive our family as it dedicates and consecrates itself to Thee this day. Do Thou protect us, guard us and establish amongst us Thy holy fear, true peace and concord in Christian love: in order that by living according to the divine pattern of Thy family we may be able, all of us without exception, to attain to eternal happiness.

Mary, dear Mother of Jesus and Mother of us, by the kindly intercession make this our humble offering acceptable in the sight of Jesus, and obtain for us His graces and blessings.

O Saint Joseph, most holy Guardian of Jesus and Mary, help us by thy prayers in all our spiritual and temporal needs; that so we may be enabled to praise our divine Savior Jesus, together with Mary and thee, for all eternity. Amen.

(Say an Our Father, Hail Mary and Glory be three times.)

Consecration to the Holy Family and Reflection by St. Bernard...

 

Our Lady of Emmitsburg

"…Especially now in this world with all the tribulations and turmoil, it is so important for you, my children, to focus not only on my Son, but also on the Holy Family.  There is your protection in a most loving way.  For I wrap my mantle around you, and I protect you.  My beloved Joseph guides you. He represents a just man, and he is an example of true fatherhood for all the world.  And then there is my Son, most glorious and omnipotent.  In His glory, which is so overwhelming, He gently smiles upon you.  Within Him is the greatest glory of the Most Blessed and Holy Trinity…."  (OLOE, August 7, 2003)

Feast of the Presentation of Our Lord - February 2, 2018

(Previously referred to as the Purification of Mary)

          What about the Child?  The role of the Child Jesus?

What is the significance of this Feast of the Presentation?...

Affection Salutations to Mary...

 

What has OLOE said on the feast of her Son's Presentation?

“…What a special day! On this day, celebrated within Mother Church as the Feast of the Presentation of my Son, isn’t it most appropriate that you, my children, will also be presented to God the Father? An honor indeed, and an act of humility on my part! Thank you for allowing me to do this for you…. I can bless you, because God has allowed me. Only you can make that decision to cooperate, to receive and to follow through….” (OLOE Private 02-02-08)

“…That is why faith must be at the center of your life and your prayer; because only then will God give you peace in your heart and in your families, and you will be able to not only understand, but to know how to help others. It is with prayer and in your own way that you will see that God is close to you and how special you are, and that you have been put on this world for a great mission - a mission for your life, for your happiness, for your freedom, and for the love and unity of all peoples….” (OLOE Private 02-01-09)

Our Lady of Emmitsburg February 1, 2009...

“…As I presented my Son, it was not such a glorious event for me. Having someone say, ‘A sword shall pierce your heart too’ (Lk 2:35), and that my Son would be the ‘falling and rising of many in Israel’ (Lk 2: 34), not knowing what was going to happen, but only having an open heart to God’s Will and following that, was quite troubling to us….

…In your world today, many people live as if my message was not an issue…. I cannot make people change, but I can pray for them. I can intercede for them; and through the grace God has given me, I can give them the strength to pray, to endure and persevere, and to follow through with what God desires of them….” (OLOE Private 02-02-10)

4th Sunday in Ordinary Time:  February 3, 2019 

In today’s Gospel from St. Luke we read about Jesus being rejected and threatened by His own people for interpreting the Word of God from the Jewish Torah:

“…But Jesus passed through the midst of them and went away….” 

Let us ponder the Words of God the Father to the world, the Lessons of Our Lord Jesus Christ and the Messages of Our Lady of Emmitsburg as they relate to that fear of defending God’s Truth, fear of rejection and fear of failure.  And let us not ever forget that the prayer that follows that rejection and apparent failure may very well be our most powerful weapon in defending God’s Truth:

Feast of St. Blaisé - February 3

Don’t forget the Blessing of the Throats! In some dioceses and parishes, the blessing is offered both on February 3 and on the following Sunday:

Brief biography, novena prayer and blessing...

 

What has OLOE said on the feast of St. Blaisé?

“…You are created beautiful in spirit, and through prayer you will see your beauty and accomplish tremendous works of charity and mercy. Do not lose heart when evil’s way attempts to interrupt your charitable works. Do not allow this distraction to trouble you…. Pray with all your hearts, and do not become disinterested in prayer. The fruit of prayer is faith. Without faith, there is no hope….” (OLOE Public 02-03-00)

Our Lady of Emmitsburg February 3, 2000...

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

“…It is the power and strength of your faith and your persistence in loving that allow you to walk with Me, talk to Me and touch Me! ...Please be strong in your faith. It is the power of your faith which unites you in oneness with Me. Seek Me and desire to grow in My Holiness! ...I invite you to dwell in Holiness. It is all possible through Love!” (JOM, Vol I, #45, 02-03-89, Seek Me, Desire Me!)

I AM Your Jesus of Mercy:
SEEK ME, DESIRE ME!

Feast of St. Agatha - February 5

Patron of Victims of Earthquakes and Breast Cancer

St. Agatha was a 3rd century Sicilian virgin and martyr who underwent extreme tortures, enduring hot coals and savage breast mutilation. She is invoked for protection from fires and diseases of the breast. Her name is contained in the Eucharistic Prayer I at Mass.

THE NOVENA PRAYER to St. Agatha

O glorious St Agatha, who remained faithful to Our Lord even unto death, intercede for me as thou dost rejoice in the reward of thy virtues. Cast a glance of pity on me (mention the person afflicted with cancer or other serious breast ailment) and grant my petition, if such be the will of God. Make my/her troubles into thine own. Plead for the grace yearned for ardently, and for a blessing that may strengthen me/her during life, so to assist me/her to lead a faithful life, so that, one day, I/she may join you in eternity to behold the Source of Eternal Joy. Amen.
(Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory Be...)

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

“…As My Heart is united to yours, your desire only to serve Me becomes My desire, which is to serve My people. I desire to bring them to My Father, to love them, to feed them My Body and Blood, to clothe them with My clothes, to offer them My Divinity and My Goodness, and to invite them to dwell in My Kingdom!...” (JOM, Vol I, #46, 02-05-89, Service)

I AM Your Jesus of Mercy:
SERVICE
February 5, 1989...

 

What has OLOE said on the feast of St. Agatha?

“…I, your Mother, am a role model for each of you, for you are all my children, bringing you closer to my Son and also teaching you to grow in love and dignity, in respect for others, and in holy fear of God…. I am not leaving, and I intercede for all good things for you before the Throne of God…. Who will intervene because of His love for you which cannot be measured….” (OLOE Public 05-05-96)

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!
