Our Lady of Emmitsburg
To the World
through Gianna Sullivan

My dear little children, praised be Jesus!
Little children, I desire for you to have an unshakable confidence in Jesus.
Be happy when He shows you the areas in which you need to grow in love.
Rejoice when your weaknesses are highlighted.
Then is the time for you to plead for His Mercy.
The more faults and humiliations you bear, the more you should seek comfort in my Son’s Mercy.
He loves to shed His Mercy and will seek you wherever you are.
You will grow in humility when your faults and imperfections surface. Do not be ashamed or feel sad.
Be happy that my Son loves you so much and freely sheds His Mercy.
He does not desire you to sin, yet He does not desire you to despair due to pride and refuse His Mercy.
His Divine perfections are full of radiant love and He knows your frailty.
Trust in my Son. Do not fear.
Have the confidence of a child that no harm shall come to you.
Confidence allows you to achieve the fullness of His Love.
The more powerless you are, as a child, the more you will attain the depths of His Love.
I love you, little children; and as your Mother, I desire you to live in His Light.
I take your petitions to my Son who is filled with an immeasurable Love for you.
Turn to Him, seek His Mercy, and do not fear. Have an unshakable confidence.
Thank you for responding to my call.
(Our Lady gave a special blessing on the sick this evening for perseverance and endurance. She gave another blessing on all married couples and the priests and deacon.)
