18th Anniversary It all began with a special trip to Emmitsburg, Maryland

This week marks the 18th anniversary of Our Lady of Emmitsburg's invitation to Gianna and Michael Sullivan to be a special part of her plan at Emmitsburg, Maryland. It all began with a special trip.
Here is how it happened: A few months before they married, Gianna came back east to meet with Michael and his family. During that trip, that the couple visited some of Michael's favorite sites. Among them was the National Shrine Grotto of Our Lady of Lourdes, at Mt. St. Mary's College and Seminary, Emmitsburg, Maryland. While in the Grotto, the couple prayed together. That’s when Our Lady appeared to Gianna, inviting her and her future husband, to be a special part of her plan, in Emmitsburg, Maryland. The couple accepted the invitation on that day, January 31, 1993, the Feast of Don Bosco.
The Feast of Don Bosco is extremely important, as it highlights a Saint, who among the many God given virtues and attributes he received was also given the gift of prophecy, revealing events to occur in the future. On the feast of Don Bosco in 2005, Our Lady of Emmitsburg disclosed that the Saint's prophecies are now unfolding, in our times.
Between the years of 2005 to 2008 Our Lady gave Gianna three public messages on the Feast of Don Bosco, which contain prophetic material and are more relevant now than ever.
In commemoration of the 18th anniversary of the “yes” given by Gianna and Michael to Our Lady of Emmitsburg, we have posted those three messages.
