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

"You will write anew a letter to the leaders of My Son's House and tell them that it is the will of the Father that they build upon these grounds an edifice of purity and piety, a basilica of dignity, a basilica for the repatriation of souls."

October 6, 1974

Eve of Our Lady of the Rosary

Veronica--The sky is beginning to lighten up. Oh, it's just beautiful. The color is a very pale blue, but mixed with the darkness of the sky, it gives it almost like a purplish blue. Beautiful!

But around the rims of the trees, it's becoming very light, a very pale sky-blue, bordering all the trees on the left side. Oh, the sky is beginning to open up. Oh, and from a great distance I can see Our Lady. I recognize Her from Her skirts.

Our Lady now is coming down through the sky. Oh, it's beautiful! She's not standing on anything, just floating right down through the sky. It's beautiful!

Now Our Lady--She's dressed a little different than I have seen Her before. She has on a white gown with a white mantle, but about Her head it looks almost like a crown of thorns, but it's made of gold. It's an absolute brilliant gold circlet about Our Lady's head, formed almost, though, like a crown of thorns.

And Our Lady has suspended at Her right side Her large white Rosary with the golden Our Father.

Our Lady--"My child, you must make more time in your busy schedule to read the Book of love and life--fifteen minutes for your day.

"Many no longer find the Revelations in the good Book. When the Book is closed and finished, it is not the end of all revelations to mankind. Know, My child, that many are given as private discourse.

"I have appeared to many voice-boxes throughout the world in My effort to reach all mankind in these dark days. However, it is sad that those who have the most knowledge are using it to turn away the light.

FAITH AND TRADITION

"When you speak of Faith, My child, make it known to the world that Faith is also Tradition. The deposit of Faith lies with holy Church. However, We see many who are using their rank to destroy the Faith. Know that the Father is watching them, permitting them to go their way as they sow the seeds for their own destruction. It is sad, My child, that I should wander and see such a dimness of faith in the hearts of Our dedicated.

"Satan has poisoned the minds of many and tainted the souls. Many are misleading. Pray for all men of sin.

"In the deposit of Faith there is also the supernatural. This, too, is being cast aside as superstition. What a sad awakening they will find when the Father sets down a heavy hand upon them!

"The Father has chosen the words Faithful and True for reason. It will be the banner for all children of God who remain in the light.

"You will pray for your cardinals and bishops. The time is coming, My child, when you will see bishop against bishop and cardinal against cardinal, as satan has set himself among them.

"In your world which has been given over to satan by mankind, it is the little ones, those with the hearts of children, that We have chosen to come to. Pride, intellectual pride, has cast many from the road. Woe to those who seek to destroy the Faith given to them with their pride and their arrogance!

"The world is in deep darkness. There is great test of Faith now. The sheep shall be separated from the goats.

"I have cried throughout your world in many places, through many voice-boxes, to make ready, for the time of trial is upon you. The great flame of the Ball of Redemption will claim many.

"It will not be necessary, My child, to speculate on dates, for what does it gain Us if We give you a date and man changes his ways for the moment? For when the time of trial has passed over, he will return then to his sinful ways. The change must be a permanent one, My child.

"You, My child, will not defend yourself before mankind. Your greatest defense will be the truth. Do not be worried of the words you will speak when they send you before the tribunals. The Spirit of truth will come to you from the Father.

"The pages of the Book of love and life are turning very rapidly, My child. See!"

Veronica--Now Our Lady is pointing up to the sky, and there's a very huge Book. And above it, there's a large cross. Now the cross was white, but it's slowly beginning to turn a purple color, and now a black. It's a very mournful-looking cross.

Now I see the cross is bending, just like it's pliable. And this black cross now is bending like a pretzel, almost, into the shape of the number four. And Our Lady now is pointing, using the crucifix--no, it's just the--no corpus, but there is a crucifix, the cross, on Our Lady's Rosary. She's pointing to the black cross that is being bent to the number four.

Our Lady--"Observe, My child, the idol that man has set up to worship. Man, the creature, now is taking the place of the Creator.

ARROGANCE OF MAN

"Man in his arrogance now decides upon life on your earth! Man in his arrogance seeks to create life on his own. This, My child, will be impossible to him. The Father is the Creator of life, and He also has every day counted in the lives of the souls on earth. He knows the past, the present, and the future. Nothing is hidden to Him.

"Why do the evil prosper, My child, you ask. Why are all who follow My Son allowed to be set upon like sheep amongst wolves? Know that by this trial will many souls be gathered. There are many good shepherds throughout the world, My child. By their fruits will you recognize them.

"You will continue, My child, to bar your doors to all but your immediate family and close workers. It is for your physical safety. Understand My words and keep them with you always, My child. We can direct your actions, but you have your own will to follow them or to choose your own direction. However, if you do not listen you must then suffer the consequences and find perhaps a sad lesson.

"We have asked you, My child, to refrain from participating in any public gatherings. You will continue in this direction. You will limit your daily life to prayer, the necessities of keeping your household, and attending the vigils of prayer and the time for meeting for the discourse and messages to the world.

"Observe, My child, the letters that form in the sky:"

Veronica--"I-N-R-I. I-N-R-I."

Our Lady--"You will all pray for the leaders of your government and the countries of the world. Satan has set much confusion among the leaders.

"The photographs miraculous, My child, must be sent throughout the world. You will make a special effort to copy them and distribute them to My children throughout the world.

"It is in your human nature that mankind will not accept anything against his nature. Therefore, do not be misguided by those who say that I bring fear into your hearts! I only bring the truth of what is to be. If you do not change your ways now and make restitution for the offenses being committed against the Sacred Heart of My Son, the Father--His hand grows heavy!

"The prayers of the few have held back the just punishment, but the sands of the hourglass are slowly running out. How foolish mankind can be with his reasoning and judgment. He is quick to judge his fellow man. Better that he pray for the light.

"Do you not recognize, My children, that satan will seek to distort and deny My words? Open your ears! Pray for the light! As shepherds, why do you choose to cast Me aside when I have been sent to you by the Father?

"The offenses to the divinity of My Son are great!

"I accept the torments which are heaped upon Me by an ungrateful generation. You will not cast aside the knowledge of the supernatural. You will not cast aside the truth of Faith and set up a faith based on the immorality of man. No! You will retain the Faith and Tradition as given to you, not making changes that cater to the basic carnal nature of mankind. You are misleading Our sheep. Pray! Get down on your knees now and pray! You will gain nothing by socializing. You have idolized money and become money changers in My Son's houses!

"My Son shall fling you out of the temples again. Moneychangers in the houses of God! Destroyers of the Truth! Turn back now, for your judgment will be far greater than those given to an ordinary man, for you as a priest of God have been chosen by the Father to represent My Son. And as such, your judgment for misleading and denying the basic truth of your Faith will be far greater!

"My child, I feel your trembling. You must go forward with perseverance and fortitude. Remember Our direction to you. These are human qualities--fear, indecision, doubt, uncertainty--but, My child, when you pray one little Ave, lifting your heart to Heaven, these fears will be dispelled. One little Ave.

"My child, look up to the heavens."

Veronica--Oh, I am seeing, I am seeing a beautiful large building. It's something like . . . it looks like it's out of a fairy tale. It's just absolutely beautiful! It's a building made of all gold. And it has stones set in all the colors of the rainbow. Oh, it's just beautiful!

And I see people. They're dressed--they're all colors and all sizes, and they're dressed in all different types of garments of various colors. And they all, though, have one thing in common: they're all happy--a beautiful, pure happiness, a joy. I feel it; I can feel it coming right down from them. It's a feeling of joy and peace and happiness beyond anything I could even describe.

Our Lady is smiling and She's placing Her hand out. She has the Rosary, and Our Lady has a rose in Her hand, a beautiful red rose.

THE MYSTICAL ROSE

Our Lady--"My child, in My mission with you I did not explain the meaning of this rose. It is a symbol of perfection and piety. It is the queen among flowers, a beauty beyond all human understanding, in the supernatural. That is why the good of heart have referred to My Queenship as the Mystical Rose."

Veronica--Now Our Lady is rising up above the flagpole. Oh, Our Lady looks so beautiful!

Now I see a huge figure. It's an angel, and I know it's Michael; I can tell. He's got some kind of a short skirt on. Oh, my! Oh, and he has these leggings, sort of like, they're all like woven, like a basket weave, up his legs. And Michael now has placed his spear to the side, but it's suspended in the air. It's strange to see. I don't know what he's lying it on, but he's placed his spear horizontally down, and it's just hanging in the air.

Oh, now Michael is taking a garland of roses. They're fresh roses, bright red--oh, the most beautiful bouquet-like, but it's a crown. It's been woven into a crown.

Now Michael is rising above Our Lady and bending over. And on this circlet that Our Lady has on Her head--it looks like a crown of thorns made of gold; but now over it, Michael is placing the beautiful crown of roses. Oh, it's so beautiful! Oh, they are so beautiful! They fit so perfectly over the circlet, the golden headpiece Our Lady has on.

Oh, now Our Lady is coming down. Oh, She looks so queenly, so beautiful! Oh, Her dress now is so sparkling a white, and the cape is also a very brilliant white--it almost hurts my eyes looking at it. Oh, it's so beautiful!

Now Our Lady is extending Her Rosary out. Now as I'm watching--oh, how beautiful! The Hail Marys are changing shape and color. They're no longer white; they're turning into little rosebuds. Oh, how beautiful!

Our Lady--"Now you know, My child, why I chose to call this the Rose-a-ry. A 'ry' around the rose. A wreath around the roses."

Veronica--Now Our Lady is holding Her Rosary out and it's just beautiful! Now on the Our Father, the rose now that's on the Our Father bead is yellow, a beautiful golden yellow color, and the Hail Marys are a brilliant red, beautiful red.

Now the whole Rosary in Our Lady's hand is just a garland of flowers. It's just beautiful! The crucifix, the cross without the corpus, has remained a deep gold. Oh, it's so beautiful!

Our Lady--"You see, My child, wonder of wonders. Nothing is impossible with the Father. Ask and you shall receive.

"This, My child, is why We have not chosen the high and the mighty and those of richness on the earth to be Our voice-boxes. They are involved with finding the treasures of the world, and they do not cast their hearts and eyes for the Kingdom.

"They do not ask, My child, anymore. They do not seek; and if they do seek, they seek in the wrong direction.

"Please, My child, hasten to send out My message with great speed. The forces of evil are gathered against you to stop you.

"Remember My words, My child; make it known to all of My children: beware of an evil force that surrounds a shrine of purity. They will try to stop you with all cunning and deception, so heed the warning of the archangels. They wish to protect you. Pray for the light, My child. Pray often. Call upon your guardian angels to direct you. They are always at your side. Tusazeri--do not forget your special guardian for your mission, My child.

"Yes, My child, you have great uplifting from the sacred grounds. In your mission, I could not promise you a life without suffering. You will understand one day, My child, the value of suffering. You will refer to each trial as the cross beneath the roses. Remember, My child, the cross beneath the roses.

"Know, My child, I cannot promise you the good life as you know it in the worldly way, for you are storing your graces in Heaven.

"There has been a question, My child, of that diabolical machine setting in your house. We wish that you cover it or remove it from your living room. It is a tool of satan. Remove it; it brings corruption into your household. Remove it at once! Better that you take it to the axe.

"No, My child, no excuses. You do not need this tool of satan to enlighten you. We will send these lights from Heaven. Remove it at once, your television.

"It is a sinister tool of the devil. You do not know what your children are watching. Day by day, daily in their lives, the filth and corruption is put into their ears and their sight. The eyes are the mirror of the soul. Guard your children's eyes well. Monitor your sets! Better that you cast them from your household.

"Remember, My child, out of sight, out of mind. That is why Our statues have been removed from among you and replaced by the edifices of satan. Out of sight, out of mind!

"And how many have My Son in their hearts today? How many of your children are being misled? How many have already fallen into the abyss? Woe, woe to the parent who does not heed My words and act upon them! You will be crying tears of anguish, gnashing your teeth, too late! Too late!

"Guard your children's souls. Do not depend on the agents outside your doors, for the agents of darkness abound.

"Wear your crucifix about your neck with pride. Are you ashamed to make it known that you are with My Son? My children, you must wear your sacramentals. The attacks upon you, both spiritual and bodily, will increase. Wear your sacramentals and place them about your children.

"Better there is death to the body than the death of the eternal soul!

"Man in his arrogance has cast aside the truth of the everlasting soul, the nature of man, the immortality of the soul. Know there is no word such as 'death'--only to the human body. You are as you are, an entity that lives forever. But over the veil, you have your choice of the kingdoms: forever in the light or the darkness. Forever with God the Father, My Son, and all those who have washed their robes clean in suffering and martyrdom for My Son, or you will join in the kingdom of the damned--the darkness, and the wailing, and the torture of heart, knowing that you are forever lost in the abyss.

"Woe, woe, woe to those parents who lead their children onto the road to the abyss!"

VISION OF HELL

Veronica--Oh, my goodness! I see that horrible, horrible pit! A deep hole, and those horrible creatures! They seem to cling to the sides of the stone. They're half human, half animal. Their fingers and their feet are like claws, long claws with long nails. Now they also have--oh, my goodness! I know now what it is--they have wings, those two that are clinging. They have wings, but they're not beautiful like the angels.

Now I hear this voice saying: "The fallen ones, My child, the fallen ones. The fallen angels."

Oh, my! Oh, they look like--ugh! Sickening, black, charred! Pinpointing ears, slit eyes, teeth that are extended over their lower lip--if you want to call it lip; it's like a gash in their face--and fang-like teeth. And now their body seems to adhere to the sides of the stone. But one is reaching out now with a claw-like--oh, it's horrible! He's going like this.

And now I see many, many people. I recognize them by their forms, but they're transparent and sort of orange-colored burning coals. And they all have a look of terror and shock, and they're screaming, though I can't hear, there's so much crackling and noise of laughter--the horrible, hideous laughter. Oh, my! Oh, and the people, I know they're people now. Oh, I'm so frightened!

Oh, I see many young people out there. They look fifteen, sixteen years old. Oh, God! Boys, girls. And I see--oh, my goodness! I see a nun now. Her skirt's blowing. She looks like she's falling head first down into the hole! Oh, my goodness! But the skirt she has on is not long, it's short--up way above her knees. Oh, my goodness!

"Impiety! Impurity! Immorality! Such is the fate, fate of all foolish maidens!"

Veronica--There's a voice, it's booming in my head:

"Impiety! Impurity! Immorality! Such is the fate of all foolish maidens!"

Veronica--Oh, my goodness!

"Blessed Mother, take me out!"

Oh, my goodness! Oh!

Now I seem to be coming out of this pit, and there's really smoke; it's gray. [Veronica is nauseated.] Oh, it's gray and it smells like--oh, I could taste it--sulphur and rot! Oh! Oh! Oh!

Oh, now I'm coming up. It's like a very long ride up through the air. Oh, now I'm coming out, and there's sunlight. Oh! Oh! Now Our Lady is coming over.

Our Lady--"You see, My child, it is the place of the damned. Man seeks to remove this truth from among you. Know that there is a hell, and there is a place of purging before you enter the Kingdom of the Father. A soul must be as pure and white as a snowflake before it becomes contaminated in the earth's atmosphere, before it can enter the Kingdom of the Father.

"In the Kingdom, My child, there are many mansions. Therefore, you cannot judge, but set a good example among others. The Father is always the final judge. We do not condone a wrong, but the Father is always the final judge."

Veronica--Now it's growing very, very bright. Oh, I feel like I can breathe again. Oh, I don't smell that horrible odor anymore. It was like burning flesh and sulphur, and oh, it was sickening.

Now Our Lady is coming down, and I feel as though She was holding me by the hand. Now She is letting my hand go.

Our Lady--"You will pray now, My child. Make it known to mankind that We have chosen these grounds as a center for atonement.

SHRINE OF OUR LADY OF THE ROSES

"You will write anew a letter to the leaders of My Son's House and tell them that it is the will of the Father that they build upon these grounds an edifice of purity and piety, a basilica of dignity, a basilica for the repatriation of souls. Graces shall be given in abundance to all who come here, graces for the asking.

"It will be a shrine of world renown, to be called Our Lady of the Roses, Mary Help of Mothers.

"We request that all of the dedicated join now with the faithful in prayer on these sacred grounds. The beads of prayer you will tell for three hours on the eve of all feast days. It will be a source of great penance for mankind. This, My child, is the balance We have spoken of through you for many years.

"A center of atonement--Our Lady of the Roses, Mary Help of Mothers. Send this message, My child, to your clergy.

"They must pray more and seek the light. The knowledge of the reality of My mission here will then be given to them. Pray a constant vigilance of prayer, and all will be given the light.

"Now, My child, you will sit. Restore your strength until My Son comes to you."

[Pause]

Now it's becoming very bright over on the right side of the flagpole. Jesus appeared oh, quite some time ago, but He said to finish with your work.

Now Jesus is coming down, and He's standing on the--almost standing on top of the Michael banner. Now Jesus is dressed in this beige-colored gown, but on the outside He has a cloak. It's a burgundy color, almost a red, but sort of a plum shade, though, with tinges of purple in it. Oh!

Now Jesus is shifting His cloak over onto His right arm--left hand; it would be our right side--His left arm. And now Jesus is extending His hand in front of Him, and He is making the sign of the cross: In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.

Now Our Lady is coming down. She was just beyond the tree. She's coming down with Michael. I see Michael, and there are about seven, eight, nine other angels behind Michael. Beautiful! Oh, they're beautiful! They're different sizes. They look like, almost like--well, Our Lady says:

Our Lady--"Choirs, My child."

Veronica--"Criers?"

Our Lady--"Not criers. Choirs."

Veronica--Oh, choirs of angels!

And now they're coming all over and going--they're standing behind Jesus. Now Jesus has nodded, and He's placing His hand in front of Him, and He's making the sign of the cross: In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.

Now He is touching His lips. I am to listen?

Jesus--"My child, you must not slacken the pace. It is most urgent that the message go throughout the world. Link by link the words of light will go throughout the world. You are approaching the days of great trial. Prepare now. My Mother has directed you well. She has given you the sacramentals for your salvation. Do not cast them aside. The modern versions hold no graces."

Veronica--Now Jesus is going over to the left side of the flagpole, and He's looking down now, and He's making the sign of the cross: In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.

Now He is extending His hand out, like this, before Him and He's making the sign of the Trinity: In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.

Jesus--"I bless you, My children, as the Father and the Spirit of truth blesses you. Continue in your prayers of atonement. Many are sorely needed.

"My Mother is a Mediatrix. She has taken Her stand beside you and will continue to guide you in the days ahead.

"Man in his arrogance and pride, intellectual pride, has cast aside the warnings given by My Mother. His will be a sad lot when he awakens to the knowledge that he has refused graces given from the Father. No man can stand alone without these graces, for the forces of evil are gathering about him. Pray for the light."

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

Now Jesus is shifting His cloak. Oh, no! It's fallen now onto His shoulders, and I can see now--He's touching the side of His cloak and opening it up, and there is a huge red heart on His chest.

Jesus--"All who keep this symbol of My great love for mankind in their home will be saved."

Veronica--And now Jesus is stretching His hand forward. Oh, my goodness! But there are drops of blood coming from His hand. Now He is placing both forward in front of Him, and I can see the holes in His hands and the blood dripping from them. It's falling now down upon us. Oh! Oh! Oh, my!

Now Our Lady is coming over. She's bowing Her head.

Our Lady--"Save your soul and the souls of those you love through the blood of My Son which has been shed for mankind."

Veronica--Oh, now it's growing much dimmer. Now Jesus is going up. He's floating up. I don't see any more of the blood coming down. Oh!

Now Jesus is just standing above the flagpole. And He's now nodding His head. His hair is quite long onto His shoulders. And now He's coming forward, very forward, and He's stooping over, bending His head.

Jesus--"Continue, My child, with the prayers of atonement."

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

 

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.
