Public Message from Our Lady of Emmitsburg
to the World
through Gianna Sullivan

Little children, praised be Jesus!
Little ones, when my Son was persecuted and defamed, all those who
surrounded Him scattered. He was alone with no one to defend Him, no one
to speak the Truth. They all scattered. So too it is today, even 2000
years later, that people like those in the past have decided still to try
to ruin my Son's Name.
For a short time in the past, they were victorious; but then what
happened? My Son's apostles came together as ambassadors of Light and as
one voice, a people of Christ; and they spoke the Truth. Conversions
happened. They suffered for my Son. They joined together, unified as one
body, as the voice of the Church.
Today if you are defamed, do those around you gather to speak the truth or
do they scatter? If you yourself are a victim, do you fall apart or do
you join interiorly and bond with the Love of my Son?
I have told you once before that a time of confusion would be soon enough
upon you; and if you did not pray, you would not be able to discern. But
as the Body of Christ, as you join together, you are the voice and you
speak the Truth. It is because of your faithfulness and devotion to my
Son's Most Sacred Heart and to my most Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart that
Truth is being revealed; and all of you are gathering together as one, in
Love and in Peace, but speaking the Truth. This is how my most Immaculate
Heart triumphs. It is when people and children are not afraid, even unto
death, to live and speak the Truth and to pray.
As a joyful Mother, I bless you in my Son's Most Glorious Name. I take
all of your petitions, and I will present them to Him. I thank you. I
thank you. I thank you for not leaving, but for returning to God. Peace.
Reflection on Message
It seems our Blessed Mother is drawing a parallelism between Jesus' time
and our own. Jesus was opposed,
persecuted, abandoned and crucified. Through the faithful few, He
defeated evil and triumphed over His enemies.
Today, Jesus' mission is experiencing the same fate. Attacks, slander,
confusion, and misunderstanding
come from many sides. There are but a few stout disciples who are ready
to suffer and defend
the spiritual cause. The Truth must be upheld at any cost. In our
faithfulness, dedication, love and courage
the Most Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary triumphs. Our dear Mother
thanks us for persevering.
