Our Lady of Emmitsburg
To the World

My dear little children, praised be Jesus!
Is not love the one virtue which combines all the other virtues to reflect holiness?
You can love one another unconditionally and seek to help those in need.
It is the greatest gift and the one virtue which reveals the truth of the incentives in your heart.
You cannot say you love unconditionally if you are unkind, do not bear patiently wrongs against you, and do not help those in need; or if you take joy in others’ failings.
Love rejoices in salvation and seeks good things for all people.
If love dwells in you to its fullest capacity, you will not be selfish or jealous of others; because the treasures of your heart will rest in God, not in the world.
That is not to say that you will not be tested or tempted.
You will be purified, and evil must be uprooted from your hearts.
Do not entertain evil thoughts.
Seek to live a pure life, and embrace love.
Your reward will be great in Heaven and will be in proportion to how much you love.
The more you endure with love, the greater your reward for all eternity will be with Jesus.
I love you, little children, and I bless you in the Name of My Son, your Savior.
I take your petitions to Him.
Peace be with you.
Thank you for responding to my call.
