Our Lady of Emmitsburg
To the World

My dear little children, praised be Jesus!
My little ones, in this world you walk blindly, submitting to the demands of its customs; yet, when it comes to submitting to Jesus and pleasing Him in obedience, you find it difficult.
Trust and confidence is what is needed.
God is with you in your trials.
He strengthens you.
Give yourself to God without seeking compensation.
Do not be concerned if you suffer without consolation, because your love is becoming purer.
All those who follow Jesus have their Cross and will end in the same fate as He.
The world may scorn against deeds, duties and practices you accomplish in hiddenness.
They may mock you because you do not make evident your virtues or win their honor or esteem.
Do not be discouraged, little ones, but be strong.
Seek God’s approval only.
Remember, this world is passing away, but God’s Love never passes away.
May the Lord’s glory inspire you to continue on in your duties to serve with Love and generosity.
The honor you seek should not be from man.
Those who walk in this world’s certainty are not walking in the certainty of God’s Truth.
Those who strive to live in humility may be seen through the eyes of the world as disrespectful, unkind and merciless.
Mocking may even exist within your Christian community.
What is needed is Love, little children.
What is needed is selflessness, unity and hospitality.
The Way of the Lord will contradict the way of this world in many facets of your life. Be patient and give yourself to God..
Do not be selfish by looking to your own needs, but look to the endpoint of God’s reign and glory.
I bless you, little ones, and love you with the love of a Mother.
Come to Jesus, your Emmanuel, and be at Peace.
I take your petitions to Him.
Thank you for responding to my call.
