Our Lady of Emmitsburg
To the World

My dear little children, praised be Jesus!
Lift your hearts up to God, little ones, in the spirit of joy and hope.
This is a time of joy, when you can consciously make an effort to join Jesus in His suffering.
To understand the true meaning of His suffering, you must seek to be like Him and love Him unconditionally in every way.
Then He will enlighten you as to how His suffering gained your salvation, and you will accept your suffering with joy.
There is a tremendous freedom in suffering when it is received in the spirit of love and joined to the suffering of My Son.
Have you ever wondered why Jesus had to suffer to be the Savior of the world? It was the way to confound the proud and triumph over evil.
Evil planned to make a mockery of God through the world’s vision that the Messiah would come as a powerful ruler, glorious and righteous.
Your Messiah is powerful, glorious, and righteous; and He is also humble. Humility is a trait evil cannot portray in any way.
Jesus came into the world with the swords of humility and love to slay evil.
He humbled Himself unto death in holy sacrifice and endured your sufferings so that you could live in His Truth and be free.
Little children, the evil one would like you to fear suffering.
He does not want you to humble yourself; to join your sufferings to Jesus.
He does not want you to know how free you are in God’s protective shield of suffering with Him.
He would like you to seek all ways to avoid suffering.
Do not be afraid if you experience suffering.
It slays the works of evil, confounds the proud, and grants you a redemptive crown of glory.
Jesus is with you. You are not alone.
Through your humility you will become powerful and share in God’s glory.
I bless you in the Name of My Son. Peace to you.
Thank you for responding to my call.
