The Feast of the Father of All Mankind
Little children, praised be Jesus!
Thank you, little ones, for your prayerful intentions and the reverence that you give to my Son. I take all of your intentions to my most Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart, which praises God on your behalf. I love you, little ones, and I thank you for coming to pray with me. You are special indeed! You are always welcome, and all are invited to return to God.
In this time of urgency, as I have mentioned before, I can no longer hold back the Angel's sword. I am in great need of your prayer and your commitment to be true ambassadors of Light. There cannot be a casualness about this. If you are a true ambassador on my behalf, then you must indeed speak the Truth at all times and join me in inviting all people to listen my words and to return to God. You cannot listen only when you desire. You must place God always first, above all things.
I can tell you, little ones, be cautious of those who claim that they know whom God should choose and use as a vessel for His Words. There is no theologian, no priest, no authority in Mother Church who in certainty can say who is or is not receiving words from Heaven. God chooses whom God desires, of all genders, of all races and of all ages. I do not come only to peasants. I come to whomever God allows me to come.
Yes indeed, you must use prudence and holy Wisdom to discern what is true and what is not. That comes through prayer and through a closer Union with God in the Eucharist. But you must have an open heart. For if you do not, then you will be held accountable for the sin of omission.
These times are urgent times, but times when there is tremendous Hope; and all the peoples of the world must know there is Hope; and Hope comes through Faith and through your Love. You must be who you say your are; and if you are a true child of God, you must live it, breathe it and be it. You cannot say you are and then not follow through. You cannot say it and live it if you do not pray with your family and live the words proclaimed in the Gospel.
You are all welcome, but do not come only to only hear my words and then leave and return back to your old ways. You must live it now, and continue to. This is what's needed now of my true ambassadors of Light---to be holy as God is Holy!
I bless all of you, children, in the Name of the Triune God Who is glorified through your suffering which no eyes can see except the Eyes of God. May you always praise Him so that you may live with Him.
Peace to you! Thank you for responding to my call.
Reflection by Fr. John B. Wang
Our Lady expresses gratitude to those who have come to Emmitsburg to pray with her. She alerts us to a special time of urgency; she rallies us to a total commitment to prayer, speaking the Truth and extending her invitation to ALL to listen to her words and return to God. At this juncture, a whole-hearted, unwavering response from us is critical, for she can on longer hold back the Angelís sword. Our Mother reminds us, even in the gravity of these urgent times, there is great Hope for everyone! This Hope comes only from faith, love and conversion. Mankind must change, repent and come back to God. Blessed Mother appeals to us to become her ambassadors of Godís Light.
In this message, the Blessed Virgin addresses some very important points about revelation and apparitions. She clearly states that God chooses His messengers and prophets at will. And she, the Mother of God, following His plans, appears to and communicates with anyone she chooses. These chosen ones may include children and adults, peasantry or nobility, educated or unlettered. In this matter, NO human being can decide for God; NO ONE should claim to know, with certainty, who is or is not receiving words from Heaven. This is something theologians and Church authorities must always keep in mind. Our Mother exhorts us to use prudence and wisdom to discern. Be open-minded. Prejudice, bias, preconception, partiality, slovenliness or lack of diligence in investigating mystical experiences may be sins of omission.
