Our Lady of Emmitsburg
To the World
through Gianna Sullivan
March 23, 1995
My dear little children, praised be Jesus!
Little ones, if you suffer affliction, persecution or opposition from the world, do not fear.
My Son lived a life filled with difficulty, outrage and persecution.
The world treated Him harshly, and people who were ungrateful killed Him.
When my Son gives you His virtues, do not be surprised when they are met with opposition and you suffer the persecution and scoffing of the world.
You are suffering as my Son suffered, and it is evidence of a true virtue from God.
One true virtue will not destroy another. Be at peace.
No servant is greater than His master.
You serve God, and in Him your hopes and desires will be fulfilled.
Turn to Jesus, little ones. Tell Him your afflictions.
Ask Him to help you.
Be open and candid with Him.
He will fill you with a holy freedom and protect you.
Nothing unfolds in this world without God’s permission.
You may not understand, little ones, but with time you will come to understand how everything is providential and serves God.
I bless you, little children, with the Light of God’s Peace.
Be not afraid.
Move forward in the courage of God’s Love with confidence.
Thank you for responding to my call.
