About Emma

Born in a very poor family

Emma C. de Guzman was born into a very poor family in Cabanatuan City, Philippines on December 08, 1949, the Feast of the Immaculate Conception of Mary, the Mother of God.  She was widowed at the age of 26 with three children: Maria  Novena, Romulo(+) and Marvin.  She lost her husband when her oldest child was 5 years old.

In 1984, Emma decided to took employment in Singapore as domestic helper to raise her three growing children. 

In 1986, through her fervent prayers, God made it possible for her to move from Singapore to Canada as a live-in nanny.

The spiritual & mystical Gifts

On September 8, 1991 on the feast day of the Blessed Mother’s birth. Emma received her spiritual and mystical gift at the Shrine of Our Lady of Fatima in Youngstown, Buffalo, New York, USA. From then on Emma experienced  mystical apparitions from the  Blessed Virgin Mary, our Lord Jesus Christ and a number of Saints and Angels.

She also received messages in different languages even if she only understood English and Tagalog. For nine years, she suffered all the wounds through the Passion of our Lord Jesus Christ and received mystical communion through the bleeding hosts from the Angel of the Eucharist.

On many occasions , Emma  was  extraordinarily  blessed to view the Souls in Purgatory; experienced the phenomenon of bi-location; roses coming out from  her chest; oozing oil; odor of sanctity and manifestation  of gold dust; as well as  the ability to read souls.

Emma is a very simple and humble child of God.  Her humility is expressed in unceasing acceptance and dependence on the Will of God. She is absolutely obedient to the authority and teachings of the Roman Catholic Church and its  Magisterium.  She fully acknowledges that her Mystical Gifts are not hers and is fully aware that she does not take glory in them. Everything is God’s will to relieve human suffering of the soul and the body.

The mission of La Pieta is to bring the message of peace, love and joy to all ; to help the poor and destitute and to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ, Our Lord and Savior.

The La Pieta International Prayer Groups espouse loyalty to the Holy Father, the Pope and live out the  traditional expression of  prayer life, such as  utmost reverence when receiving Holy Communion on the tongue and the women wearing  a white veil for Holy Mass.
