The Story of Little Li – Taken from “The Hidden Child of Medjugorje” by Sister Emmanuel

Little Li
Taken from “The Hidden Child of Medjugorje” by Sister Emmanuel

When God called His servant Fulton Sheen back to Himself, in 1979, millions of Americans mourned his death as if they had been left orphans. For years, he used every possible means to reach hearts through media, and soaking in every word of his, the people were fascinated. Gifted with a rare charisma, he was a blend of natural eloquence and the power of the Holy Spirit. Yes, through his witness, people knew that God was alive, magnificent and desirable. Archbishop Sheen shone so brightly that TV channels were fighting over him, knowing that his broadcast would shatter all ratings on record. His popular show, “Life Is Worth Living,” reached about thirty million viewers every week.

This Archbishop, master of evangelization, had a secret. Like all truly great men of God, he privately cherished a chance of revelation in his life. It was an episode when an abundance of grace had floored him, and set him on a path from which he would not deviate for anything in the world. To understand that experience, we have to transport ourselves back to China in the 1950’s, at the peak of the Communist crackdown …

The Tiny Steps of a Child

In a parochial school, children diligently recited their prayers. Sr. Euphrasia was pleased because two months ago, many of the children had received their First Communion, and took it very seriously; from the bottom of their hearts. She smiled as ten year old little Li asked: “Why didn’t the Lord Jesus teach us to say ‘Give us our daily rice?’” It was a very difficult question to answer, since these children ate rice morning, noon and night.

“Well, it’s that ‘bread’ means ‘Eucharist’,” answered Sr. Euphrasia, whose heart radiated much brighter than her theology. “You ask the good Jesus for daily Communion. It’s true that for your body, you need rice. But for your soul, which is worth much more than your body, you need bread. That is the Bread of Life!”

In May 1953, when Li made her First Communion, she had asked Jesus in her heart: “Always give me that daily bread so that my soul can live and be healthy!” Since then, Li had received Holy Communion everyday, but she was aware of the fact that the “bad people” (the Godless Communists) could prevent her from receiving Christ at any time. So she prayed ardently that it would never happen.

She would never forget the day they entered the classroom and screamed at the children: “Right now-give us all of your idols!” Li knew very well what they meant. Terrified, the children gave up their pious, carefully hand-painted images of Jesus, Mary and the Saints. Then, in a fit of anger, the Captain pulled the Crucifix off the wall, threw it down to the ground and trampled it screaming: “The New China will not tolerate these grotesque superstitions!”

Little Li, who loved her picture of the Good Shepherd so much, attempted to conceal it in her blouse. It was the special image given to her for her First Communion. But a loud slap on her cheek sent her crashing to the floor. The Captain called Li’s father and humiliated him before tying him up with a rope.

That same day, the police made a sweep of the village, cramming all the inhabitants they could find into the tiny church. The Captain proceeded to bark out a new kind of “sermon” ridiculing the missionaries and the “agents of American imperialism.” Then, with a thundering voice, he ordered the soldiers to fire at the tabernacle. All together and at once, the congregation drew a long breath and increased the intensity of their prayers.

The Captain turned back to the crowd and screamed: “Let’s see how your Christ can defend Himself – here’s what I think of your ‘Real Presence’ – the Vatican’s trick to exploit all you people!” Saying this, he grabbed the ciborium and threw all the Hosts onto the tile-floor. Stunned, the faithful shrank away from his gaze and choked their cry. Little Li froze in horror.

“Oh, no,” she thought. “Look what happen to the Bread!” Her innocent and righteous little heart bled for the Hosts strewn all over the ground. “Isn’t anyone going to help Jesus?” she wondered in amazement. The Captain continued his tirade of insults, interrupting his blasphemy only to let out spurts of guttural laughter. Li silently wept.

“Now, get out!” yelled the Captain. “And woe to the one who dares to return to this den of superstition! He’ll answer to me!”

The church quickly emptied. But besides the angels always present around Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament to adore Him, there stood another witness who had not missed a moment of the drama. It was Father Luke from the Missions Etrangeres (Foreign Missions). One month previously, foreseeing the takeover of the village, the parishioners had hidden him in a small recess of the choir, which gave him a view of the church. He sank into prayers of atonement for the sacrileges committed against Jesus and suffered because he was not able to come to Jesus’ defense: one wrong move on his part, and the parishioners who had hidden him would be arrested for treason.

“Lord, have mercy on Yourself,” he prayed in anguish. “Stop this sacrilege! Lord Jesus!”

Suddenly, a creaking sound broke the heavy silence in the church. Slowly, softly, the door opened. It was little Li! Barely ten years old, there she was, approaching the altar with the tiny steps of a Chinese girl. Father Luke trembled: she could be killed at any moment! Unable to communicate with her, he could only watch and beg all the saints in Heaven to spare this child. The little girl bowed for a moment and adored in silence, just as Sr. Euphrasia had taught her. She stayed with Jesus in adoration for one hour, knowing that she was supposed to prepare her heart before receiving Him. Her hands joined together, she whispered a mysterious prayer to her dear Jesus – mistreated and abandoned. His eyes glued to her, Father Luke stared as she lowered herself down to her hands and knees; and with her tongue, took up one of the Hosts. She remained there on her knees, eyes closed, turned inward face to face with her Heavenly Friend.

Each second seemed an eternity to Father Luke. He feared the worst. If only he could speak to her! But soon the child went out just as quietly as she had come in, almost hopping along.

The purging continued as the volunteer brigade searched the entire village and surrounding area. This type of terror was happening all across “New China.” The peasants didn’t dare to move. Hiding in their bamboo homes, they knew nothing about the future and couldn’t take tomorrow for granted. Yet, every morning our little Li slipped away to find her Living Bread in the church. Reproducing the same scenario from the previous day, each time she adored for one hour and then took up one Host with her tongue and disappeared. Father Luke was chomping at the bit: Why didn’t she take them all? He knew exactly how many there were: thirty-two. “Doesn’t she know she could pick up several of them at once?” he thought.

No, she didn’t know. Sr. Euphrasia had been very clear about that: “One Host per day is enough. And never touch the Host; we receive it on the tongue!” The little girl perfectly conformed to the rules.

One day there remained on the ground only one more Host. At daybreak, the child scurried into the church as usual and drew near to the altar. She knelt to the ground to pray, very close to the Host. Father Luke had to muffle a cry. Suddenly a soldier, standing in the doorway, aimed his gun at her. A single dry pop was heard, followed by a loud burst of laughter. The child immediately collapsed. Father Luke thought she was dead, but no! He watched her struggle and crawl up to the Host, he saw her put her tongue over it. Then, a few convulsions shook her body, before it finally relaxed.

Little Li was dead – but not before she had rescued all the Hosts!

Holy Hour, Every Day

Archbishop Fulton Sheen revealed a secret at the age of 84, two months before he passed away, during an interview on national television. “Your Excellency,” began the interviewer, “you have inspired millions of people world-wide; what about you, who has inspired you? Was it a Pope?”

“It was neither a pope, nor a cardinal or any other bishop- not even a priests or a nun! The one who has inspired me was a small ten year old Chinese girl.”

It was then that Archbishop Sheen revealed his intimate secret by telling the story of little Li. He explained how the love this little child had for Jesus in the Eucharist so impressed him that, on the day he first heard it, he made a promise to the Lord that every day of his life, until death, come what may, he would spend one hour in adoration in front of the Blessed Sacrament.

The Archbishop not only kept his promise, but he never missed a chance to promote the Love of Jesus in the Eucharist. Tirelessly, he invited the faithful to spend a daily Holy Hour with the Blessed Sacrament. For him, there wasn’t a shadow of doubt: it was this unknown and poor child from remote, rural China who was the spark that had ignited this immensely fruitful apostolate.

On that day, in front of their TV screens, all America understood that millions of hearts touched by this great preacher had also been touched by little Li. It was this innocent child with her thirty-two heroic visits to Jesus scattered all over the floor, who paved the way for him to lead millions to adoration in front of the Blessed Sacrament. Behind the blossoming of many Consecrations, vows and vocations inspired by the most popular American prelate there was the little Chinese martyr and her union in blood with the Lamb.

God the Father – “Do not seek man’s approval over and above My approval – Let your every priority be to please Me first and foremost – Change anything in your life which opposes this goal – As you try to accomplish this goal, your prayers will be more powerful, your hearts will be more at peace”

Once again, I (Maureen) see a Great Flame that I have come to know as the Heart of God the Father. He says:

“Children, today, as the New Year is beginning, empty your hearts of all unforgiveness, all self-ambition and all that is untrue. Begin anew to structure your spirituality in Holy Love.* Do not seek man’s approval over and above My approval. Let your every priority be to please Me first and foremost. Change anything in your life which opposes this goal. See everything as it relates to pleasing Me. Center your hearts on this goal.”

“This is the way to die to self and all materialism and to work only towards your own salvation by pleasing Me. As you try to accomplish this goal, your prayers will be more powerful, your hearts will be more at peace. The earthly priorities you held precious in your hearts will gradually take on less importance. You will more clearly see the direction your soul is following in Truth.”

Read 1 John 3:21-22+

Beloved, if our hearts do not condemn us, we have confidence before God; and we receive from him whatever we ask, because we keep his commandments and do what pleases him.

Read Colossians 3:1-4+

If then you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth. For you have died, and your life is hid with Christ in God. When Christ who is our life appears, then you also will appear with him in glory.

Prophet John Leary – Messages from Our Lord, Jesus Christ – December 28, 2021 Update

Prophet John Leary

(Mark Hubbel Funeral Mass)
Jesus said:
“My people, you have many ups and downs with trials in your life, and one of them now is with your health during this Covid crisis. I have been warning people for a long time to avoid taking the Covid shots, boosters, and flu shots. It is better to build up your immune system with health supplements as Hawthorn, vitamin C, vitamin D3 2000, and elderberry extract. Some people, who took the Covid shots, are now dying from Covid variants. Mark suffered with health problems, and this took off some of his purgatory time, but he still needs Masses and prayers. He will be watching out for his family. Pray for his family as well.”

(St. John the Evangelist, Apostle)

Jesus said: “My people, this scene of an empty stable is a sign that your turn to go into hiding at My refuges draws near. Your recent practice refuge run, that I recommended, is another sign that the time to leave for My refuges of protection is soon. You have celebrated My feast of Christmas with your families, and now they are returning home. It was joyous to be with your loved ones for a short time, and it also was good tidings to you to hear of two more great grandchildren coming in August of next year. Give thanks and praise to Me for coming into this world to bring redemption for your souls.”

Jesus said: “My people, your coin change will be the first thing that your government will get rid of. That is why you are seeing coins at the side of the road as so much trash. The next to go will be your paper money, as the evil ones are preparing for the cashless society. Further on you will see the chip in the hand or the mark of the beast which will be your only means of buying and selling. Beware to not accept the mark of the beast or a computer chip in your body. Also do not worship the Antichrist. You will see the men in black coming door to door to try and force the mark of the beast on everyone, or the UN troops will kill you in the detention death camps. Before this happens, I will send My Warning to help convert souls. Then I will call My faithful to My refuges of protection. My angels will protect you from being captured. You will be safe at My refuges from the evil ones.”

(Holy Family Sunday)

Jesus said: “My people, My family of My Blessed Mother, St. Joseph and Myself are the Holy Family that you all need to imitate in your actions. Instead of living together in the sin of fornication, I want couples to get married in My Church with the sacrament of Matrimony. The family should be the core of your society, but there are many single parent families, or broken families with divorce or separation. It is hard for one parent to bring up children because that parent needs to work for a living. As you come together on Christmas, this is the time to share gifts with each other. If necessary, you can help each other financially to get by with your needs. Pray for your families to stay together without divorce, and work to love each other with compromises. I love all of you, and I want you to love Me in My love.”

Jesus said: “My people, today you saw your cable TV and your internet go down with a problem with your cable provider. In the future you will see your services of TV and your internet go down for good when you will see atomic bombs and missiles attack your cities. Your people are so vulnerable when you lose your power and connections to your internet and cable TV. Some of your people have set up refuges, and you will be protected from harm by My angels. I will multiply your food, water, and fuels at My refuges, and I will protect My faithful remnant from the evil ones. I will provide for your protection from the Antichrist, and I will see to your survival throughout the whole tribulation. Have no fear because I will defeat the evil ones, and I will bring you into My Era of Peace.”

(Christmas Day)

Jesus said: “My people, you all are sharing in the joy of My birth in Bethlehem, which is why some called Me the Son of David. When the Wise men brought Me My gifts, the myrrh was a sign of My future suffering, and this is why you saw a veil over Me in your vision. King Herod read of the coming birth in Bethlehem, so he tried to kill Me by killing all the infants in that city. St. Joseph was warned by an angel in a dream to leave for Egypt to avoid the soldiers who were trying to kill Me. The plan of My salvation was carried out, despite the attempts of evil men to destroy Me. I came to bring salvation to all of mankind by My death and Resurrection. Rejoice that you have been released from your original sin by My sacrament of Baptism.”

Jesus said: “My people, up to now you have seen a mild winter with a lower snowfall than normal. In the vision you saw a winter storm blizzard meaning you could still have some bad weather. Keep your kerosene burners handy for if you have a blackout, or a heavy snowfall. You are still seeing some rotation from cold to warm and back to cold. Be prepared to pay more for your heating bills as your prices of natural gas have been rising. I love all of you this Christmas, and I pray that you love Me as well. My angels are protecting you even now.”

Friday, December 24, 2021

Jesus said: “My people, I know you are all honoring Me on Christmas, but the best gift you could give Me is your daily prayers and your daily consecration of everything you do for Me. You all are also sharing gifts with each other to show your love and care for them. You find a way to get your gifts, even despite all of the shortages and higher prices. As you think of helping the poor, you could share your donations of money and food with your local food shelf. You can pray for your family’s conversions, because their souls are most important to Me. I bless all of you as you celebrate My birth. Do not forget to put a Nativity set out to remember the reason for this feast day.”

(Christmas Eve Mass)
Jesus said:
“My people, you are seeing the angels blowing trumpets of joy as I was born. This was the beginning of My victory over sin and death. The shepherds visited Me and gave Me praise for being a God-man. The Wise Men later visited Me to give Me their gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh. Rejoice in My birth that you commemorate every year. You all shared your gifts with each other, and you had two announcements of coming births of our great grandchildren in August of next year. You are being blessed with so many children, but you also need to pray for all of the souls of your family that they can be converted and saved.”

Thursday, December 23, 2021

Jesus said: “My people some people are impatient because they have to wait to receive their orders of merchandise. Imagine if you were in the flames of sheol with your soul body, and you had to wait thousands of years to be released. When I was born to save mankind from their sins, these souls in the flames were joyful because in a few years they would be freed after My death and Resurrection. So do not complain when you have to wait a few years for My Warning to start the events of the end times. You are living in a glorious time when you will see Me defeat the evil ones, and I will bring My faithful into My Era of Peace with no evil influence. Keep your soul clean with frequent Confession, and you will have your reward soon for being faithful to obeying My Commandments.”

Wednesday, December 22, 2021

Jesus said: “My people, as you think of My birth at Bethlehem, not many people think of how the Holy Spirit is involved with Christmas. It was a miracle of the Holy Spirit that I became a God-man as the Blessed Mother conceived Me by the power of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit was also involved with the miracle of My Resurrection. Wherever there is life, the Holy Spirit is Present to give life to the spirit of that person. There are many miracles with the birth and final resurrection of every person. Give praise and thanks to Me and the Holy Spirit for all of the miracles of life that you are witnessing.”

Jesus said: “My people, most cities and towns have treatment plants so the sewer water does not pollute the lakes and rivers. If such a condition of black sewer water is flowing into a lake, it should be reported to stop the pollution. There is also a spiritual pollution of evil coming from prostitution, adult book shops, and strip shows. You could limit this pollution by shutting down these kind of establishments. You can also encourage people to come to Confession to clean up their souls from their sins.”

God the Father – “I speak here, today, not to predict, but to foretell – If man continues to challenge the Truth of My Commandments in all walks of life – I must visit earth with My Justice, My Wrath – Do not live as though tomorrow will be the same as today – Then, I will not find you in error when you are judged”

Solemnity of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Holy Mother of God and the Feast of the Circumcision of Our Lord and the Octave of Christmas*

Once again, I (Maureen) see a Great Flame that I have come to know as the Heart of God the Father. He says:

“I am the Lord, thy God. My Sovereignty is over Heaven and earth and the whole universe – which man does not know. In Me is All Truth. Mankind must obey My Commandments** in order to share Heaven with Me. There is no compromise to this Truth.”

“I speak here,*** today, not to predict, but to foretell. If man continues to challenge the Truth of My Commandments in all walks of life – entertainment, fashions, the illicit use of technology, money markets and more – I must visit earth with My Justice, My Wrath.”

“Do not live as though tomorrow will be the same as today. Time, which does not exist in Heaven, is both friend and enemy. Use it as an instrument of good. Then, I will not find you in error when you are judged.”

“Offer to Me your coexistence with disease – germ warfare notwithstanding. Always follow the path most beneficial to your own salvation. Trust in the light of My Mercy. Forgive one another, as forgiveness is the forbearer of a better future. The tasty fruit of forgiveness is peace.”

“Leave selfish motives behind. Live for the welfare of one another. Then, My Blessing will rest upon you.”

Read Psalm 24:1-6+

The earth is the LORD’s and the fulness thereof, the world and those who dwell therein; for he has founded it upon the seas, and established it upon the rivers. Who shall ascend the hill of the LORD? And who shall stand in his holy place? He who has clean hands and a pure heart, who does not lift up his soul to what is false, and does not swear deceitfully. He will receive blessing from the LORD, and vindication from the God of his salvation. Such is the generation of those who seek him, who seek the face of the God of Jacob.
