The Message of Our Lady and Our Lord to Veronica of the Cross

"Your country [United States] now holds the balance for the destruction of the world."

February 10, 1973

Eve of Our Lady of Lourdes

Veronica--Saint Michael requests that all bow who are able, and make atonement for the offenses against the holy name of God.

My God I believe, I adore, I trust, and I love Thee. I beg pardon for all those who do not believe, do not adore, do not love, and do not trust Thee.

Saint Michael is on the right side of the flagpole. Now he's coming down forward, and he's saying:

St. Michael--"Make haste and listen well to the words of the high Queen of Heaven. Her direction will be followed, or you will receive the punishment due an ungrateful generation."

Veronica--Now Our Lady is coming down. Oh, She's dressed beautifully. Our Lady is all in white. All around the outside of Her robe--it covers Her head from Her feet all the way across Her head and down to Her feet--there's golden trim. It's very brilliant. As the light shines upon it, it glitters. And now as it glitters, I see tiny hosts appearing. They seem to be floating all about Her head, beautifully glittering.

Now Our Lady is coming down. She's over by the right side of the flagpole. And She's looking down over to the right side and over to the left, and She's holding out Her hand. Oh, but in Her hand is a large heart, and it's dripping with blood! And Our Lady says:

Our Lady--"See His heart, so torn by the offenses against Him!

"My hand grows tired. I hold back the darkness. I have wandered throughout the world begging for atonement. My pleas have fallen upon many deafened ears and many who have allowed themselves to be blinded through the pleasures and seeking of worldly riches."

Veronica--Now Our Lady is floating over. She never walks; She's floating over to the left side of the flagpole. And I see coming through the clouds, many, many angels.

Now I see a man. He's coming forward, and he said:

ST. ROBERT BELLARMINE

St. Robert Bellarmine--"I stand above my namesake [Veronica's parish church], for the battle ahead will be one not only for the salvation of the human soul, but for the existence of the true Church of God!"

Veronica--Now over on the right side, there is a man. Oh, I know it's Saint Benedict. He's holding a large book. And he's pointing to the book, and he said:

ST. BENEDICT

St. Benedict--"The rule will be followed without change!"

Veronica--Oh! Now Saint Benedict is pointing up, up to the sky. And he said:

St. Benedict--"See what is planned by the Father for those who have hardened their hearts!"

Veronica--Oh! Oh! Oh! I see . . . there's a great darkness now covering the world. And now there is a large ball. It looks like a sun. But now it's very small in the distance. I see it approaching by years, by months, by days.

And now Our Lady is standing over to the right side, and She's saying:

U.S. HOLDS THE BALANCE

Our Lady--"Count now each day and live it as though there will be no tomorrow on your earth!

"Penance, atonement, sacrifice, I have asked and cried for. Your country now holds the balance for the destruction of the world.

"We watch the battle that rages upon earth. Awaken and look with enlightened hearts upon fact and truth. You are now living in the battle of the spirits, the days of approaching darkness.

"I have chosen to remain upon earth as a Mediatrix between God and man. I will remain here with you, and have sent many guardians upon earth to guide you in the battle ahead.

"Our hearts and tears fall upon the young, the victims of their elders. The judgment of God will not be understood by human man. Therefore, you will all direct by good example and prayer. Do not seek to castigate your neighbor, but by good example and prayer lead him back onto the road to the Kingdom.

"There is much error and delusion upon earth. Many have fallen into the ways of the world, leading to a society based on humanism, modernism, and pure satanism. Before the battle is completed, you will have chosen your road and the ultimate eternity for your soul.

"Blindness of heart and intellectual pride have set many of Our high priests onto the road to damnation. Their example will take many with them, but they, too, can be returned if they will turn from their worldly ways and return to prayer and starve their bodies of the demons that have entered upon them.

"There shall be no rationalization among men for sin. For sin is damnation, and there will be no excuse! Shall this world of yours continue, you will continue onto the road to a damnation in eternity of hell. Do you wonder why We plead with you now, My children, to make yourselves ready for what lies ahead?

"Your country and your world will be cleansed by trial. How foolish those who choose the easy road, the road that leads to darkness. How sad that they exchange a life of beauty in the Kingdom for the torments of damnation in hell with Lucifer.

BE CHAMPIONS

"Pray, pray much, My children, for those who are in darkness. You who have been graced to have your eyes opened to the truth are under obligation now to spread the word and recover those who need your help in prayers and sacrifice. These graces were given to you so that you will be champions in the battle."

Veronica--Now I see over to the left side of the flagpole--Our Lady now is going over to the left side, and there are two men now standing with books in their hands. And I recognize Saint Thomas of Aquinas, Saint Robert Bellarmine. And now there's a young man coming forward. He's dressed--it looks almost like a choirboy's outfit. It's--I, I don't recognize his garments. They look like a priest, but he has a cape over his--the black garment. And now he's holding up a Book, and it says, "The Book of Life."

And he's pointing now over to Saint Robert, Saint Robert Bellarmine. Now Saint Robert is holding the Book up. Oh! And it's, it's all red; the Book is red. But upon the cover there's a large, black cross. He says:

St. Robert Bellarmine--"The Book is going into deep darkness also. The words will not be rewritten to suit man. The words of God will not be changed to pamper man on earth.

"There will be given many warnings before the Chastisement. One major warning will be given soon to your country. The Chastisement and cleansing will come in two parts of the world. One will be in your side."

TERRIBLE WAR AND THE COMET

Veronica--Oh, Our Lady's showing me a large globe. I can see the United States and Canada. And I can see South America. And also now Our Lady's pointing over to the left side of this globe, and there's Asia, Egypt, Africa. And then--oh, there is a terrible war. Many, many people are dying.

"Many, many people will die," Our Lady said, "many souls unprepared to come to the Kingdom."

Now Our Lady is pointing over. Over on the right side, there's a large globe. Now out in the sky I see . . . it's a ball. It looks like the sun. But no, it's twirling; it's swinging very fast across the sky, and it has streamers of fire coming out from behind it. It looks--and it's twirling so fast. Oh, and the heat, it's very intense.

Now one of the tails has hit--oh! Oh! I see . . . I, I see cities now. There's great fire. And all the lights--there's no electricity; all the lights have gone out. And people are running and trying to find candles. But the air has become stagnant, and there seems to be no oxygen. And they can't light the candles. It's very, very dark.

PUNISHMENT FOR U.S.

Now this ball, it's swinging. It seems to be--it's going very fast through the sky. And as it passes over, there are great particles of dust. [Veronica coughs.] People standing out in it, they're--they, they can't breathe. It's choking. It's like dirt falling from the sky. Now, now there are large rocks, and . . . and--oh! Oh, some of them are falling upon the people. The buildings--some of the buildings have fallen, and the people are running away. But there's no place to run because now there's, there's--the waves have started to rise very, very high.

And oh, the waves are now ten, twelve feet high; and they're, they're pulling into the land! And I see now, I see part of--oh! Oh! Oh! New York! Oh! Oh! Now the comet is swinging over. It, it's . . . it's not just New York; it covers the whole land.

But I see now--Our Lady now is pointing over to the right, and there's a map. And I see little dots of light. I see one, two, three--over on our side on the map, it looks like from New York down to Florida--I see one, two, three, four . . . it looks like eight or nine candles.

And then over towards the center, there are about . . . maybe fifteen or twenty candles. And over, over on . . . looks . . . from Washington down to Mexico, I see very few candles--only, only maybe about four.

Now Our Lady's coming over. And now Our Lady said I am to listen, but not repeat.

[Pause]

Our Lady said that man will be subjected to a cleansing that has never been experienced since the beginning of his world. All who are of well spirit will have no fear, for all is in the plan of the Father. Man has hastened what had been planned for the future. There is great hope that the little armies set up throughout the world will hold back the darkness.

Now--oh, Our Lady's coming forward. And, oh! Saint Theresa is with Her, and--oh, Saint Theresa and her sisters. And it must be very windy up there because their skirts are blowing. And Theresa is smiling. And she said:

TO THE NUNS

St. Theresa--"My sisters, I have come many times to the sacred grounds because I promised to direct you from Heaven. I do not misguide you when I follow the direction of the Queen of Heaven. I do not place myself above man and his failings, and I stand only as a small little speck in the world and in the firmament of Heaven. But I, too, know what lies ahead for you in your world.

"You must open your hearts to the Holy Spirit. There is much delusion. Many souls are now on the road to hell. We cry, we shed many tears for those who will be lost to the Kingdom.

"Satan has entered into the homes of my sisters. A strong example of discipline and purity must be shown within the homes of my sisters. Do not follow like the sheep to the slaughter."

Veronica--Now Saint Catherine Laboure is coming down, and she's standing next to Our Lady and Theresa. And she says:

St. Catherine--"How many times must the Queen of Heaven shed Her tears upon a world that turns its back upon Her? We await the final outcome, and the hand will be placed upon the world heavily.

"We are much distressed in Heaven to find the number of our sisters who have fallen in line and leap with great joy of heart down the road to the abyss. They do not seek the road to the Kingdom, but the pleasures of the world which will only be temporary. Eternity--do you not seek an eternity for your life and your soul? How long is eternity, my sisters? It is forever! Your earth-years are but short, but the Kingdom is forever.

"Have you no shame to expose your bodies? Do you not know your example has been given to you falsely to lead you into the darkness? Open your hearts to the Holy Spirit. Accept the sacramentals given by the Lord high God of Heaven and the Queen of Heaven. Wear them, and do not let the demons enter upon you.

"We stand forward in the battle for the recovery of all souls from Lucifer."

Veronica--Now it is growing very dark. Theresa and her sisters, they are floating backwards, up, high above the flagpole. And they're going right into the sky. I can barely see them.

OUR LADY OF GRACE

Now there's a very, very bright light about Our Lady. And She's coming down. And now She's standing over the flagpole to the right side, and She has Her hands extended out, like this. Oh, now from Her hands are coming rays.

The rays now--oh, they're . . . they, they are coming down on both sides of the flagpole, the rays. Now they're very, very strong. There are three rays from each of Our Lady's hands. And they're coming down upon the people. And Our Lady now is smiling. Oh, She is so beautiful! Now there are stars forming about Her head. They're all like a circlet. Oh, it's so beautiful!

Our Lady's cape now is blowing. Now the color--there are blue lights now coming down from Heaven, shining onto Her cape. Oh, the cape is so beautiful now. It's blue, it's blue with a gold trim.

Now Our Lady is placing Her hand now over Her heart. And now She's reaching out and placing Her--oh, She has the Rosary; Our Lady has Her Rosary in Her hands. It's beautiful. Oh, they're beautiful beads. They're all pearls, pearls. And the Our Father is golden. Now the crucifix is golden, very large and golden.

Now Our Lady is coming over to the right side of the flagpole. Oh, She is going to bless everyone with Her crucifix, like this. Our Lady is holding it like this: In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.

Now Our Lady looks down, and She's floating over to the left side, our left side of the flagpole. Oh, and She's extending Her hand now, and She's blessing everyone on the left side with the crucifix: In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.

Our Lady said:

Our Lady--"I send upon you graces in abundance, graces for the asking, the power of cure and conversion through prayer, instruments for the conversion of sinners. All sacramentals blessed on the sacred grounds of My Son--I say My Son, for I give no credit, My children, to Myself as the Queen of Heaven, but do honor to the Father of Heaven and earth for the graces He chooses to send you for the conversion of your souls."

Veronica--Now Our Lady said:

Our Lady--"You will continue with the prayers of atonement, the Rosary, the instrument of peace."

Veronica--. . . to tell you something at this time very, very important, She said.

Our Lady said that throughout the world there is a delusion. Man is being taught that he will not be sent to hell or purgatory, no matter how much he offends his God, because his God is an all-loving God. Yes, He is an all-loving God.

And now I see Michael is now coming forward with Our Lady again. She said I am to remain in my seat. Our Lady said:

Our Lady--"Continue the discourse, My child."

FREE CHOICE

Veronica--He is the Father, an all-loving God, but He has given man his free will. He has set man upon earth as His champion to make his way back to the Kingdom. It is your free will to choose Lucifer or the Kingdom of your God.

Many now in the world have chosen to follow Lucifer. They can be recovered by the good hearts and prayers of those who have great love for mankind. Penance, atonement, and sacrifice given to others will be returned to you three-fold.

Do not be deluded by satan's plan to take from your mind the existence of a purging place and hell. They do exist, and they have existed since the time of the angels when they were cast forth, as man, too, will be cast forth when he becomes disobedient and arrogant to his God.

Now Michael is coming forward, and he's holding the balance. He says:

St. Michael--"See, my child, how uneven the scale balances. Recognize that the sins of man have placed a heavy load upon the scale. When the balance is fully edged . . . ."

Veronica--Now Michael is holding the balance which is filled with--he's writing now in the sky the word "ABOMINATIONS": A-B-O-M-I-N-A-T-I-O-N-S. He said:

ANGELS WITH THE BOWLS

St. Michael--"When the peak of iniquity has been reached, and the abominations fill--"

Veronica--Now he's holding a golden chalice, and he's looking into the chalice. And I see blood flowing from the chalice. It's a very large, golden chalice. Now I see three angels. They're standing over to the left side of the flagpole, and they have what looks like soup bowls in their hands. They're holding three bowls out.

Now one angel raises his hand above his head, like this, and with his left hand now he is turning the bowl over. Now the other angel points over to the right. Now he's coming over to the right, and he has raised up his hand and says--and he's pointing with four fingers, and he also has this large--that looks like an urn or a bowl, and he's turning it upside down.

HORSES OF THE APOCALYPSE

Now the third angel--oh, behind him are four horses. Oh, the horses behind the third angel, they're all colored: one is black, one is red, one is white, and one is green. They're four colored horses.

Now I see a large body of water, and I see two angels. Now they're standing over the waters, and they place their hands over the waters. And the waters are now--are rising very, very high.

Now there are four angels. It's like they were on a four-cornered pond. And they're standing now, each with spears, at the four corners of the pond. And now Michael is coming to the right side, and he's saying:

St. Michael--"This, my child, is another puzzle for man to figure out. If not solved in due time, the Father plans to set the answer upon the world Himself."

Veronica--Now it's growing very, very dark. Oh, no, there's a light now up in the top of the sky. Oh, and Our Lady's coming forward now. Oh, and She's holding in Her hand the Baby, the Infant Jesus, and She's holding Him very close. And She said:

Our Lady--"Many infants of similar age shall be removed from the world, many against the will of the Father, and many through the will of the Father. Man shall make atonement for his offenses against his God."

Veronica--Now it grows very, very dark, and Our Lady is now--She hasn't turned Her back, but She's gliding back, back over the flagpole and over our heads now. She's standing over . . . . And Our Lady says:

Our Lady--"Continue now with your prayers of atonement and the beads of prayer I have given you for the recovery of souls."

[Pause]

Veronica--. . . a baby wrapped in blankets to be brought to Our Lady here. [Workers set out to locate the baby who was then brought over to Veronica by the mother.]

Our Lady said I am to place the relic of Theresa upon the child.I know I have the relic here. The relic of Saint Theresa is to be placed upon the child. And the Rosary is to be continued, please.

I bless you with the shield of the Immaculate Conception: In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. May you be protected with the shield of the Immaculate Conception, and through the mercy of God the Father in honor of His Son, Jesus, Who died for all humanity, we implore Thee for the salvation of souls and the glory of Mary, the Mother of God, to help this child in his infirmity.

TIME OF TRIAL

. . . in the Father's will that you are all here. . . . [words not clear] are not graced, you will be saved, Our Lady said, after the coming of the Ball of Redemption, which is the comet. And right now it should be known that what we are going through is the latter days, the beginning of the latter days, the time of trial and cleansing. And what you do now will give the balance, Saint Michael said this evening, of when this punishment, this Chastisement will come upon the world. Now the pages must turn in the Book of Life. Saint Robert Bellarmine pointed that out this evening, but we can hold back the darkness and gather as many others onto the road to the Kingdom.

NEW KINGDOM

Now Jesus plans to set up His new Kingdom very soon. It's a sorrowful thing to say that this will be done through a method of cleansing. Now the major War that Our Lady spoke about tonight and the Ball of Redemption will have come together simultaneously. And those who will be left, will be left to set up the Kingdom with Jesus. Because the culmination of the final War will be when Jesus will come with Michael and the others from Heaven to establish the Kingdom again.

And at that time all this discord and the anguish and the tears of parents will all be a thing of the past. But the battle that rages now, Our Lady said, is one of the spirits. And you must recognize that what you're battling now is unseen, mostly unseen to the human eyes. That's why Our Lady is permitting us to receive here--many people from many parts of the country and the world have come and taken pictures. And on camera we are receiving what the human eye fails to see. We do have--and those who have been to my home know that we do have actual photographs of demons. The miraculous pictures are now running into the hundreds.

SHRINE WILL ALWAYS STAND

And actually, actually, too, what is more important to man who does not believe unless he sees--it's obvious in this world today--are the cures and conversions that are coming in very fast. And in due time--we must be patient, Our Lady said--the Shrine, after the cleansing, too, the Shrine will always stand. It will be the point, a great source of solace to many during the time of the cleansing. And Our Lady said that thousands of people will pass by the doors of Saint Robert's during this time.

So therefore, Our Lady wants you to know that the warnings being given to the world are not to strike fear into your heart but to bring to you the fact of what is coming upon us. And then you will be prepared. Thank God in your heart, really, Our Lady said, that you have been called to know what is to come upon the world, and you can be prepared.

[Pause]

Oh, Jesus is appearing. Please kneel, all who are able. That is why my "music box" would not play. [Veronica had tried in vain to play a Fatima hymn on her tape player.] Oh, now all sacramentals will be raised. Now Jesus is coming forward. He's on the right side of the flagpole. Now all sacramentals--Rosaries, objects of God, will be extended. Now Jesus is coming over to the right side of the flagpole. And He's raising His hand above His head, with His three fingers extended, like this. Oh, and now He's making the sign of the Trinity: In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Now Jesus--oh, He looks--oh, He's so beautiful! Oh!

Oh, He's wearing a burgundy-colored robe, and He has this cream-colored robe over it--under it, I mean; the burgundy robe covers His tunic. And He has sandals on; I can see Jesus' feet. Oh, He is showing me His shoes. They're sandals. And now Jesus is floating over to the left side of the flagpole. Now He said to repeat after Me:

Jesus--"I send unto you and diffuse among you the graces for conversion and cure, all graces that will be necessary for the propagation of My Mother's mission on earth."

Veronica--Now Jesus is raising His hand and then making the sign of the Trinity: In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Now He's floating far over above the trees, over on the left. And He's standing, and He's looking down now.

Oh, and Our Lady now is coming over by Him. Oh, now Jesus has turned to Our Lady, and Our Lady is extending Her Rosary. It's very large, beautiful! The light is very bright.

Now Jesus is looking down, and He's raising His hand. He's just over by the trees, over between the two forks of the trees there. And He's extending His hand over His head, and He's blessing all the sacramentals: In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Now Jesus now is floating over to the flagpole.

"Yes."

Jesus--"My children, We do not send upon you unjust punishments or chastisements. They are given only to bring you back to Us. All who remain in the light and close to Us will have no fear of the days ahead.

"You will carry the banner for Our Vicar. He has accepted his mission upon earth. He will enter into the Kingdom in glorious triumph. The prayers of atonement and the sacrifice for the repatriation of souls must continue unto the days of the final battle.

CHAMPIONS FOR THE KINGDOM

"Be champions, My children, for the Kingdom, for the glories of the Kingdom far surpass the temporal pleasures of your world.

"I bless you, My children, and I diffuse among you the graces for conversion and cure. Keep the sacramentals that have been given to you through the ages of your world's time. They have been given for reason. Do not cast them aside, for when you do thus you will cast aside your protection against satan and his agents who are loose now in full battle upon earth."

Veronica--Now Jesus is raising His hand high above His head, and He's blessing now and making the sign of the Trinity, like this, with His fingers.

Now He's floating backward, back up above the flagpole, and He's standing with Our Lady. And Our Lady now is looking over to the right, and Saint Michael is standing there now. And Our Lady is saying:

DEMONS POSSESS MANY

Our Lady--"Michael must be returned to My Son's House. The demons must be cast from My Son's House. They have taken possession of many to do the will of Lucifer.

"Continue, My children, with your acts of sacrifice and prayers of atonement. One day you will all understand the necessity for these acts and the actual results for the conversion of sinners in your world today."

Veronica--In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Amen.

Our Lady says:

Our Lady--"Remember these words of solace, O mothers. The crosses placed upon you are for the strengthening of your souls. Do not accept them as any form of punishment when you have been loyal to your God. For many trials that you do not understand are for the sanctification of your soul and the souls of your loved ones."

Veronica--"Oh. . . . Yes."

She must make many interruptions to guide Her children well.

PRAYER YOUR GREATEST ARMOR

Our Lady said that more will be gained by example and prayer than if you go about and accuse each other. Though They do not condone wrong, the Father is always the final judge. Therefore, you must not set yourself to judge another. Heaven does not condone wrong, but you must pray. For there is not one soul upon earth who has been born or has conducted his life, Our Lady said, conducted his life without sin. All man has been an instrument of God, and man has allowed himself to become an instrument of satan. Therefore, pray and have great charity of heart for those who have fallen into the web of satan.

Prayer is your greatest armor now against the agents of hell. Our Lady said prayer is your greatest armor against the agents of hell. When they are present, they cannot stay where there is prayer. So Our Lady said pray and chase them from your homes, your churches, and your schools, and your government. A Rosary, a crusade of prayer must be kept in vigilance throughout your country and the world--now!

Your days before the Chastisement and the intermittent warnings are few. You must do penance and make atonement now!

[Prayers and hymns continue.]

 

Prophecy is conditional, but . . . | The Messages from Heaven | Home

The Virgin Mary appears in America

This beautiful story of grace, peace and redemption opened publicly on June 18, 1970 when the Mother of God visited Veronica Lueken on the grounds of the old St. Robert Bellarmine Church in Bayside, New York and later at the Vatican Pavilion site (blessed by Pope Paul VI) in Flushing Meadows Park, New York. Beginning in 1968, St. Theresa the Little Flower prepared Veronica for these Heavenly apparitions.

For 25 years, the Virgin Mary and Her Divine Son would appear to this mother of five children during Rosary Vigils on these sacred grounds until her passing in 1995. Our Lady asked that this Shrine be called "Our Lady of the Roses, Mary Help of Mothers" and that a Sunday Holy Hour offered for the Pope and priests be held.

Over 300 comprehensive messages packed with wisdom and guidance for these latter days were transmitted through this seer named by Heaven, Veronica of the Cross.

Our Lady of the Roses Shrine is under the stewardship of the lay Order of St. Michael (est. 1977), a vibrant community of dedicated, celibate men who have been appointed by Heaven to lead this global mission. Our Lady has prophesied that this lay Order will bring forth the full-fledged religious Order of St. Michael, an order founded on Catholic tradition.

Our Lady has also stated that curative waters will erupt and a magnificent basilica will be erected at the original site of St. Robert's.

The Vigils and Holy Hours continue to this day at the Vatican Pavilion inspired by Our Lord's promise: "We have made Our home upon these grounds." Cures and conversions abound and for countless pilgrims, faith and hope have been restored. We invite you to join us.
