Little children, praised be Jesus!
Little ones, forgive all those who have hurt you. Forgive them as God has forgiven you. If you cannot forgive those who have hurt you, then it will be most difficult for you to forgive yourself when you meet your Creator face to face. Speak up for the Truth. Defend justice. For justice and peace shall meet, and you do not want to be held accountable for the sin of omission.
God loves you, little children. You are special. What you do with your lives, how you treat one another, and how you treat yourselves are all vital ingredients to total happiness.
Allow God to live in you now! This is a great gift---to be one with God. It takes an act of submission on your part, and then be at peace. For We are with you, never to leave you unless you reject Us. Through your free will it is possible to reject God.
Here and now is a place of refuge, as has been mentioned before. You are safe, especially since what has been foretold will come to pass. The hour and the day you need not know if you are one with God, for it will not matter. If you are not one with God, you will fear.
Do not fear, for you have an opportunity to be one with Him. You can live in unity with Him, and God can live in you. Heaven is a place, however the Holy Spirit can live in you now through the gift of your Baptism.
Take serious this invitation! For if you think another day can pass without taking action on your part, then when that day arrives you may not have the opportunity. So act now! Live in peace, and be happy. For all children, who truly believe and are committed to fulfilling God's Divine Will, are happy.
I love you, and I take all of your petitions into my most Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart which is united to my Son. Peace.
Reflection by Fr. John B. Wang
Our Mother wants us to take her advice seriously. There is urgency in her exhortations. To be safe and happy we must live in God and treat each other well. Without God, we would be lost and drifting aimlessly. So, we must be united with Him and do His Will. We must speak up, defend the truth and promote justice. We must always forgive, just as God forgives us.
Blessed Mother reiterates Emmistburg is a place of refuge now and in the future. The predicted events will take place. Fear not; be at peace, for the Lord is our safe Haven.
