The Search of the Mountain
Emma mentioned to a priest about the mountain that the Blessed Mother said she will find. The priest said that he knows someone who owns a mountain in Batangas so they decided to meet at Evercrest Golf Course on December 27. Emma spent overnight in Tagaytay with Andrea’s friend Gerrie Villa for one night so they can go to Evercrest to meet the priest but they wasn’t able to go to the place because they need a 4-wheel drive jeep to drive up to the mountain. Gerrie heard about the story on the mountain so she told Emma that she also have a mountain that her family bought years ago, and it is not far from Evercrest.
Emma asked Gerrie if she could bring them to her mountain. As they go near it, Emma felt something in her heart, it’s pounding.
Emma said, “This is the mountain that the Blessed Mother was telling her.”
Emma went back to USA and announced to the La Pieta Groups that she has found “the mountain”.

Soon you will be going to your Homeland
Message from the Virgin Mary to Emma
“Soon you will be going to your homeland (Philippines). God loves the little people of that land. My children who are strong in their faith follow my Son. Even through the midst of their many sufferings and trials they still come to my Son. You will go to the mountains and bring the simple message of love, peace, and joy. In your simplicity and nothingness, you will do the mission. It will not be easy. God has already chosen the people who will be with you. The simple message of love, peace and joy will be very powerful. Love one another for love is the greatest gift from God. Unite your heart in love with your brothers and sisters and peace will come upon all people for my Son is King of that land. They will know you for my Son lives in you. My Son already called and chose His Apostles (the priests) to unite together to help fulfill this mission of peace. The eyes of many will open. The powerful will be humbled. This little island will be the example for the surrounding nations to imitate.”

The night was extremely cold but the people stayed for the vigil and continued to pray. Emma in her deep prayer knelt down and started walking on her knees. Her face starts to shines as gold sparkles appear on herface. She was looking up as if she is seeing something beautiful in front of her. It was extremely cold and windy that time.
Emma: I was praying when I heard beautiful chanting of angels. I was so happy when I heard their voices telling me that the blessed mother is coming. Then I saw bright lights everywhere and the angels appeared on those bright lights. They formed themselves like an arc in front of me.
A beautiful lady appeared. She was smiling at me. She was wearing a white gown covered with a golden mantle and a gold sash on her waist. She was surrounded with bright golden light. I greeted the blessed mother a happy feast day and she greeted me a happy birthday. And she said to me,
Message from the Virgin Mary:
“I am the Immaculate Conception. Today is a beautiful and very special day because it is the 150th anniversary of the feast of my Immaculate Conception. Thank you my children for coming here. You are my children who listen to the message of my Son. You did not worry of the coming storm, cold weather and strong winds. You are here because of your love to my Son, Jesus, and your love for me. I am your Mother of Love, Peace and Joy. This is the love that I ask from you, my children, to offer the same love to your brothers and sisters. I am your mother who calls my children to open their hearts to receive the pure love and not self-centered love.
You are here my child (referring to Emma) in this little humble mountain that my Son chose, like yourself, the little humble instrument of God, who will bring my children to come to the mountain of salvation, of peace, love and joy.
You, my children, are here because God called you to be His instruments, to spread this message of love. You are here today offering your petitions, asking for healings for your loved ones; your sorrows for your children who are lost on their journeys and for the conversion of your family. I can see and feel all your sufferings and burdens. I ask all of you to offer them to my Son, Jesus. You must also understand that the healings you are asking for are always according to God’s will. My children who are called to be here are healed because you said YES to His call.”
The blessed mother smiled at Emma, came near, and bended and touched her fingers. Emma received personal messages.

WILL OF GOD : TO BE APOSTLES OF TRUTH
“Many of you don’t know the Will of God is. The Will of God is beautiful because it is the Will of my Son. You will better understand that the Will of God comes to you, when you offer it with prayers and sacrifices, you will receive peace in your heart no matter what consequences occur. This is the total abandonment to the Will of God.
This day I call the apostles of God to be apostles of TRUTH.”
2010 December 08
BRING COMPASSION AND LOVE
“God has a beautiful plan in your land.There are things that are not done according to the Will of God. Just open your eyes and hearts to see what is happening in your surroundings. I ask my children to bring compassion and love to those who are in need.
Remember what my Son promised—your little islands will be the light of the world and an example to the nations.”
2011 September 08
TAKE A STAND FOR THE GIFT OF FAITH
“The world is in darkness. There are things that are not done according to the Will of God. Remember it is God who is control of the universe and can make good things come out of the bad that causes the darkness.
Take a stand for the gift of faith and defend the Church and my priests.
A day will come that every soul will have their conscience revealed and will realize how much they have offended God.”
2011 December 08
HEAL YOUR LAND

Do you have to wait for the ground to be shaken and opened, and to see my poor little children in that water, before you will say you are sorry? There is no voice for my little people to hear because of the pride and power.”

I am the Mediatrix before the MEDIATOR
“I am the Mediatrix before the Mediator. Thank you so much apostles of God for joining with my children in prayers. I encourage my children to pray and to be with priest.
2012 December 08
THE ARK OF SALVATION
I ask you to be faithful to the Church. This is a battle between good and evil. There will be division of God’s children. Many of my children who say ‘I believe in God; I praise You Lord; I follow Your Commandments; I love you Lord,’ will not enter into the Kingdom of God because they did things their own way or love the Lord when it was convenient. My children will be on the road to perdition because they follow the pleasures of the world.
My Son Jesus is your only Hope. I can see that you are drowning under the water and will not even try to get out. Do you know that each of you have your own boat to sail? I will always help you get out of the water and assist you to ride in your boat. That boat will reach the Ark, and that is the Ark of Salvation. What is happening today is a sign of the fig tree.”
2013 September 08
HAVE YOU USED YOUR TALENTS I GAVE YOU?
“ There is no peace in this world because of many destructions and struggles: racism, religions, confusions, violence, kidnappings, social injustices, killings, terrorism and political disputes as well as hatred that brings resentment and accusations towards others. War that brings darkness to the world. There is no peace in society and even in the family. Peace is a gift from God. My Son is the Prince of Peace that gives peace to His people.
God is generous in giving you talents, knowledge and wealth for the benefits of others and the land. People are just stewards to use them wisely. They are not here to own it but to share it. You are accountable for these for one day, God will ask you, ‘Have you used the talents I gave you? Return to Me with good profits from what you did on earth.’
To the priests: You are the messengers and co-redemptors of God to the world, to bring God’s message and speak the mystery of Heaven and God.”
2013 December 08
COMPASSION FOR OTHERS
The Blessed Mother appeared with St. Magdalen de Pazzi, St. Theresa of Avila, St. Therese of Lisieux, St. John the Apostle and St. Faustina.
Emma was sobbing because the Blessed Mother’s face was very sad and in tears.
“I know you were very sad because of the calamities that happened in your lands, especially the loss of so many people. I know the sorrow and grief of my children who have lost their love ones in this typhoon. Before my children cried, I, your Mother, cried first because I was in those places watching and praying for the souls of your brothers and sisters to be safe.
God had allowed this tragedy to occur for a special reason. He knows everything that is going on in this world. God in His ways, protected those souls. I took care of my little children under my mantle. Please continue to pray for their souls and to offer Masses for them.
The problem in your country cannot be solved through justice only. You must bring justice and mercy together and then charity will remain in your hearts, which is ongoing love and compassion for others. There must be human justice with mercy and not inhuman justice with hatred:
The Saints of Heaven said: “You people should console the Heart of our Mother. She is sorrowful because many people have deeply offended her Son. Our Lady, who had appeared and gave messages to the people, made requests to her children. However, some requests were not respected nor were they obeyed. Humble yourselves before God and ask for forgiveness. We ask our brothers and sisters to carry your Mother everywhere you go. Bring her picture or statues of any size and share them with the people. This is Mary, who is full of grace. This is the Mother of Jesus Christ, who is our Lord. She is the Mediatrix of all grace.”
2014 September 08
MAKE A CHAIN, AND LET IT NOT BE BROKEN
Message: “I have this request for you to do my children. I would like you to make a chain. Make this strong and let it not be broken. Put your love ones first and anyone that God brings to you. Link them to your chain and make it longer and longer; until this long chain will cross the ocean and reach all the corners of the world to make the miracle of light shine upon the darkness.
The world is focused on negativity. The evil one destructs the minds of people to confuse them. Do not dwell on this negativity. Pray for peace and unity in this world.”

On the same day, Emma said that she will not be coming to the place anymore because of her obedience to the Church authority, Archibishop of Lipa. She shared to the people that when she was in New Jersey (before her coming to the Philippines) she was very sad to leave the mountain in Calaca but she received a message from our Lord Jesus. “My dear child. I love you and I know your heart is focus on Me. I am pleased because you obeyed Me. I have teachings you should follow. You have many things to do My child. I will lead you to a new road. This road will reach the mountain. The time is coming soon. Your foundation is strong. The seeds I gave you were spread all over. You planted the seeds and became fruitful. I want you to plant more seeds, cultivate them and produce more fruits. When you produce, give them to everyone you meet. These are the fruits of love.”

UNITE YOUR HEARTS TOGETHER
Emma together with La Pieta prayer groups and devotees of our Mother of Love, Peace and Joy had their first vigil in Montemaria. It started 3PM with a Eucharistic Celebration with Most Rev. Ramon C. Arguelles, Archbishop of Lipa, as main celebrant.
Emma saw our Mother of Love Peace and Joy, together with St. Joseph, St. Peregrine and three angels. Emma recognized St. Peregrine because of his wounds on the right leg. The Blessed Mother was smiling at her children and with her arms open wide…she looked down and said:
“I, your Mother desire to unite your hearts together to serve My Son truthfully and purely. God has placed you in His tapestry. If there is one piece that does not put to its proper place, it will not be done perfectly. Each piece has to be molded and to be purified.”
The Blessed Mother looked at Emma and smiled.
“Your mission is for unity and peace. You were brought here because of the respect and truthfulness of your heart. God wants you to remain simple, humble, and obedient to follow His Will. If confusion is present in you and among you, My Son will lead you to a road for a new journey until you fulfill the mission He gave you.”
The Blessed Mother continues and said:“God is Love, who gives peace and happiness in the hearts of His people. When you serve Him, you must be patient, understanding, humble and not confused at all. I ask my children to focus always at the Altar of my Son, to talk to Him, so as to receive the guidance, which He, Himself has given to His apostles.”
Before sundown, they had a Eucharistic celebration and procession from Sto. Nino Chapel and to Mt. of Salvation, Montemaria (previously called Punta Sta. Cruz) then back to the Sto Nino for the Prayer Vigil, just like Emma’s vision in early 1990’s where people holding their rosary and candles.

I AM THE MOTHER WHO BRINGS PEACE TO MY CHILDREN
La Pieta prayer groups and devotees of our Mother of Love, Peace and Joy gathered together for a Prayer Vigil in Mt. of Salvation, Monte Maria in Pagkilatan, Batangas City.
I heard the chanting of many angels behind me and I turned around. I saw them suspended in the air forming an arch. A bright golden light appeared in the middle and I was so happy to see our Mother of love, peace and joy, together with 3 Carmelite saints: St. Therese of Lisieux, St. Teresa of Avila, St. Magdalen de Pazzi, St. John, the Apostle, St. Faustina and St. Peregrine. They were looking down at us and smiling.
The Blessed Mother said:
“I am your mother who comes to bring peace to my children. She looked upon us and said: “I am very pleased with the big preparation my children did in this place, the excitement and joy I see on your faces, with no tiredness during the procession when the Blessed Sacrament was being carried by my dearest son (Archbishop Arguelles who was holding the Monstrance).
What a joy in my immaculate heart to be with you, my children, together with beautiful apostles of God who always bring My Son to the hearts of their people.”
Looking around again, the Blessed Mother said:
“Look at this creation of God given to the people. This is a gift for you, appreciate it with thanksgiving. I am here to ask my children to unite your hearts together in prayer. Your land still needs healing because peace is not happening. I am asking my children to remove your hatred towards one another. Do not look back on the past where you can’t find peace. You must forgive and forget the past; so you will be able to move on and to receive peace in your hearts.
I am your Mother who will always be at your side, to protect you under my mantle, and to bring you all to My Son’s Sacred Heart. He is Merciful to His people when they come back to Him.
In this place, multitude of prayers will be happening because the saints and angels, and your Mother will be united in your prayer.”
Mother Mary looked down on the priests with a beautiful smile and said:
“Thank you dear sons for being with your brothers and sisters.”
“Your intercessory prayer requests will be offered to the Altar of God in heaven. I love you my dear children. “
Our Lady disappeared followed by the saints and angels.
