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

"Many who have entered into this purgatorial purging site have done so because of sins of the flesh."

February 10, 1974

Eve of Our Lady of Lourdes

Veronica--By the left side of the flagpole it is becoming very bright. The darkness seems to just be giving way, and there's a beautiful arc of light. And Our Lady now is coming forward. She looks very tiny now. But now . . . no, She's closer. And Our Lady is dressed in white with gold trim, and She has upon Her head a beautiful crown. The crown is made of gold. I can see that it's an open crown, because the crown covers Our Lady's garment. She has like a cape over Her head, but the crown is sitting over the cape. I can't see Our Lady's hair. The cape comes forward over Her forehead.

Now Our Lady is saying:

Our Lady--"You understand, My child, the need for modesty in the world."

Veronica--Now Our Lady is moving over to the right side of the flagpole. Now She's looking down very sadly, Our Lady, and She is saying:

SOULS IN PURGATORY FORGOTTEN

Our Lady--"Many prayers are rising to Heaven, My child. Many souls await your prayers to be released from the place of purging. There are not enough prayers for those who are being purged. Many are forgotten once they have left their worldly lives. Families, once united in love, why have you forgotten your loved ones?"

Veronica--I'm now looking beyond the gates. They're the gates I saw when Our Lady released all those wonderful, happy people. But now as I look beyond the gates I see many people. But they are in a condition that it makes me very unhappy to see. They are very illuminous and glowing. They seem to glow an orange color, like they're burning. And their arms are all raised up, or outwards towards the gate. And now I hear cries. Many voices are crying, "Spare us, O Lord! Quench the fires of thirst within us." And now I hear a voice. It's a voice of a woman; she's an elderly woman. She's crying, "Virginia, Virginia, why have you forgotten me?"

Oh, now it's growing dark. It's very, very hurting to see these people. I know they're human beings, but they're in a void. It's a painful void. It's like they're suspended in a void where there's nothingness, and they're reaching up. And they're crying because they are helpless.

I see two now who have sort of floated up towards this gate. And they're looking out, and they're asking, "Please, two Masses for me. There is no one to release me. Please, two Masses for me." Oh! "Robert, Helen, two Masses for me." Oh!

Now Our Lady . . . it's growing dark; I can't see these people any longer. And Our Lady now is coming over to the right side of the flagpole.

Our Lady--"My child, it is sad that there are many who will spend eternity, unto the end of your time, awaiting their release, for they have no one to sacrifice or pray for them. Many who have entered into this purgatorial purging site have done so because of sins of the flesh.

"You may not understand, you cannot understand, My child, the ways of the Father. But a soul must be as pure as the brightest star in Heaven before it can enter into the Kingdom. Many parents are responsible, My child, for long stays for their children in purgatory. They do not protect or prepare their children's souls. Do not rely on the false teachers, who are gaining in number about you. Each parent must assume full responsibility for the salvation of his children's souls.

"There will come upon the world a great trial. This trial will enter into the House of My Son. Perseverance will be fruitful.

"The truth has been given into every man's heart by the Father. He has in his will the power, as a human, to accept or reject the truth. He will do this in bargaining for the pleasures and riches of a temporary world, discarding the eternal treasures of Heaven.

"My children, why do you not learn the value of suffering? The books of truth have been removed from among you. You must read the lives of the founders of My Son's House and those great saints who cry in Heaven for vengeance upon satan and his agents--now! For many souls are being taken into the abyss.

"The Eternal Father has set before you the rules and discipline for your salvation. They will not be replaced by the rules created by man to feed his worldly inclination for soul destruction. Many will sell their souls to satan to get to the head.

"The House of God, My Son's House, will proceed through great trial. All that is rotten will fall. Satan now rages and will do full battle in the House of God.

"The greatest hope, My children, I can offer you is that the eventual victory over the evil will lie with your allegiance with My Son. The Father has full mastery over your world, permitting this time of trial in order to separate the sheep from the goats. You will be tried as metals in the fire."

ST. PETER

Veronica--Now I see, coming from behind Our Lady, a man. Oh! No, now I see another man. There are two men. Now one is dressed like a monk; he has on a long gown with a cape. And the other, though, is dressed very beautifully in purple with gold trim, and he carries a stick, a golden scepter in his hand. But he's carrying a very large red book in his right hand, and the scepter is in his left hand. Now upon his head is a large crown. The crown is--oh, it's a papal crown. It's very high and has like tiers on it. Now he's stepping forward, and he says . . . I can hear him; he's talking very low:

St. Peter--"Do you not recognize me, my child? I am Peter."

Veronica--Oh! Oh, it's Saint Peter. Now Peter is opening the Book. It's a very large Bible. And he's pointing now with the scepter, and he's turning the pages. And he's saying:

St. Peter--"Changes, changes, changes. Destruction! Delusion!"

Veronica--Now I see that now Peter is removing this crown from his head, and he's placing it in his right hand. And now he is placing--oh, he's reached out and he's placing a crown of thorns on his head. Now I hear . . . standing behind him--oh, it's Michael, Michael. He's very, very large. But Michael now is coming forward closer. He's standing next to Peter, and Peter has his head bent down very low. He looks very sorrowful, as he holds the tiara in his right hand.

And Michael is saying:

St. Michael--"They will crucify the Mystical Body of Christ!"

Veronica--Oh, it's--oh! Oh! Now it's growing very dark. Now Peter is going backwards. He seems to be floating backwards. He's not walking, he's carried backwards right into this very dark cloud that I see. And Our Lady now is coming over by the right side of the flagpole.

Our Lady--"My child, you must not slacken; you must not accede to satan's plan to stop your work! This I caution you, for he has set many foils to stop your work. Continue, My child, in perseverance. I cannot promise you all roses. You have received the thorns, and you will receive more thorns. But eventually, My child, your arms will be filled with roses."

Veronica--Oh! Oh, now coming forward on the right side of the flagpole is Saint Theresa. Oh! Oh, Theresa. Oh! Now her arms are filled with roses. Now Theresa is taking the roses and she's throwing them out. Oh! Oh! Oh! Oh, now Theresa is throwing the roses out in each direction. I see two now that are going over on this side. And, oh! Now Theresa is holding a crucifix forward. The roses are gone. And now she's holding the crucifix out. And now Theresa is saying:

St. Theresa--"Veronica, you will carry your cross in perseverance, for you will find great joy and comfort. I have told you in the past of the days ahead. Know that your trials will be given by the Father, for in this manner will you and others be instruments from Heaven for the salvation of many souls. Do not question the ways of the Father, for there is a plan for every soul He has sent upon earth.

"Sorrow enters into the hearts of many mothers. It is but a sorrow of loss. Better, My child, that you understand that the greatest sorrow of all is the loss of the soul.

"There is--"

Veronica--Now Our Lady is coming forward; She is going to speak. And Our Lady is saying:

SOUL NEVER DIES

Our Lady--"My child, you must make it known there is a great fallacy in your world. Know and tell all that life is beyond the grave. You do not sleep in the dirt, for when the spirit leaves the body it enters into eternal life. Satan would seek to commit you all to darkness and keep you in the dirt so that he can destroy the true tenets of your Faith.

"Life begins when We recall the soul. This does not mean, My child, that the body will be remaining forever in the dirt. The body shall return to dust as it was created. But the real being lives forever unto that day when it will be rejoined rejoicefully with all unto their body. This will be the day after the cleansing of the world, after the setting up of the Kingdom by My Son, when satan will be set loose to do his dastardly work. And then will come the end.

MANY FALSE CHRISTS

"I must caution you in the days ahead to look not in vain for the coming of My Son. There will be many false christs among you. He will come to you in only one way: descending from Heaven as He ascended into Heaven, and He will come accompanied with the forces, the warriors of Heaven and the saints. Remember well, many false christs will come into your world. Reject them! Do not be misled by their false miracles. Reject them, knowing that Jesus will come down in view of all with the saints and the angels.

"There is much confusion, My child, in your world--confusion that has been created by satan. There is only one major means now to rid satan from the House of God and your homes. That is prayer and turning to My Son. Save your souls and the souls of all those you love in the Sacred Heart of My Son."

Veronica--Now Our Lady is going over, and now She has Her Rosary in Her hand. It's a very large white Rosary, and the crucifix is very golden. As She turns it's so brilliant I can barely look at it. But Our Lady is raising the Rosary now, and She's making the sign of the cross, like this: In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.

And Our Lady is turning over now to the left side of the flagpole. And She's raising the crucifix and 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 to the center of the flagpole. And She's saying:

Our Lady--"Do not forget, My children, the sacramentals. Satan will work hard to capture your soul. We have given you your armor. Do not cast it aside."

Veronica--Now Our Lady is blessing again: In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Amen.

Our Lady is saying:

Our Lady--"You will sit down, My child. Jesus will bless all the sacramentals in due time. Continue with your prayers of atonement. They are sorely needed."

[Pause]

Veronica--Our Lady has touched the medal from Lourdes, also, with the cross of Her Rosary, Her very large white Rosary with the golden crucifix. And Our Lady also bent down low. It was quite low to come down to try to kiss it, so She said that I would kiss it for Her. But She blessed it with Her crucifix.

Oh, Our Lady is bending over, and now . . . oh, She is going to step on the crown. No, She won't step on the crown. She's bending over. I don't . . . oh, the book. No. Oh, Our Lady is bending over now and She is touching the top of the box now with Her crucifix. And Our Lady now is bending down. Oh, She said I should extend one up to Her. All right. Right here. If I can lift it--there. There. Oh, Our Lady is now kissing the box. She says:

Our Lady--"That will suffice, My child, for all the medals and sacramentals in the boxes."

Veronica--And now Our Lady is taking Her crucifix and She's touching it to the boxes over here, and She's making the sign of the cross. Now Our Lady . . . oh, She asked me to remove one from the box. All right. All right. And . . . there. Oh, very high. I . . . that's right. Oh, Our Lady wound up kissing my two fingers. Oh, I'm to place it within the box. Oh!

Our Lady says:

Our Lady--"Your medals have been blessed by Heaven."

Veronica--Oh, Our Lady is now kissing Her crucifix. She's gone up a little farther up now by the flagpole. And She's smiling. And now She's raising Her crucifix and She's blessing the sacramentals, like this. Oh, Our Lady is now going back over to the right side of the flagpole. Oh!

Our Lady--"My child, all sacramentals will be blessed by Jesus. You must have patience."

[Pause]

Veronica--And now we will recite, at the direction of Our Lady, the Litany to Saint Joseph. Now Our Lady requests that this litany be in reparation for many priests who are in purgatory. Our Lady said that the priests in purgatory are forgotten, because many have forgotten them because they think as priests that they don't need prayers, that they enter immediately into Heaven. Our Lady said you must understand that the priest is still human and subject to sin and error.

However, during the consecration of the host, and during the time of the confessional when he gives absolution, he is Jesus personified. He is the representative of Jesus, though he be subject to error. He is still a human being, and therefore can enter into hell or purgatory. There are many now who have been forgotten. Therefore, we will recite the Litany to Saint Joseph for those priests who have not received enough prayers and sacrifices to release them from purgatory. Many have been there, Our Lady said, for many, many years. Therefore, we will recite the Litany now. [The Litany of Saint Joseph is recited.}

[Pause]

Veronica--My Jesus, I accept the cross. I dedicate, I consecrate myself to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Amen. In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Amen.

All who are able, please kneel, because Jesus is here and He will bless all the sacramentals.

Now Jesus is coming forward. He's . . . the light is very bright; I have to bend down now in order to shield my eyes from the light. The light is very, very bright tonight.

Now--oh, now Jesus is moving over to near--He's between the flagpole now and the trees. Now Jesus is looking down. He has on a red robe; it's a beautiful red robe. It looks like it may be made of satin, or sateen. It's catching the light. And now Jesus is wearing a gown under the robe. It's a cream color. It's not white; it's like an off-color cream color. And He has on brown, sandal-like slippers.

Oh, and now Jesus, now I notice His hair, but He has a crown now upon His head. The crown doesn't have a top. It's a single circlet, and the crown is similar--it comes down upon His head similar to the crown of thorns, but it's made of gold and it has beautiful points, like. The points are made in three sections. I count one on the left, one in the center, and one at the side. But Jesus is smiling, and He's bending down His head. I can see He also has two more sections, with three--it looks like leaves, on each side. Now Jesus is moving over towards the trees.

Now Our Lady, Our Lady is standing behind Him. But now Her robe is not a white with the golden trim, it's a pure blue. Our Lady's covering is blue over Her, and Her--though Her gown looks very white. The light is very bright.

Now Jesus is bending over.

Jesus--"My child, I will bless the sacramentals. It will not be necessary to remove them from your packages, for I assure you that I can see through them. This will avoid much confusion, My children."

Veronica--Now Jesus is coming over into the middle of the flagpole, between the flagpole and the tree. He's very beautiful. Now He has kind of swung His robe over onto His left arm. It looks very heavy. It . . . yes, it's satin; I can see now. And He's raising His hand, like this, and 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 is going over. . . . He doesn't walk. Our Lady and Jesus seem to just be carried by the air; They seem to float. And now They're just over by the tree, above the tree. And Our Lady is smiling, and She's looking down. She's placed Her Rosary now about Her waist. They're not in the hand; She's placed them at the band at Her waist. She has a golden rope-like band about Her waist, and Our Lady's placed Her Rosary there. And She's standing next to Jesus. Our Lady is shorter than Jesus. It might be the way They're standing, but She looks like She only comes up to Jesus'--just below His shoulder.

And now Jesus is bending down now and looking down, and He's smiling. And He's raising His hand again with His fingers like this, together. It's like three fingers together. And now He is making the sign of the cross: In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.

Now I see coming through the sky--oh, there's Michael. Now Michael--and there are two others; I know they're angels, because they are very, very big. But they're not frightening, they're just awesome. They're very, very large.

Now they're following behind Jesus. Jesus is coming across now; He's going over--He's at the left side of our flagpole here, the left side. And Our Lady now is standing at the right side of the flagpole. And Michael now is--has gone, and he's behind Jesus. And he's standing now at Jesus' right side.

Now Jesus is raising His hand high above His head, like this, and He's looking down, and He's now making the sign of the cross: In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. And now He has stopped, and He's looking down here especially, because He's coming down closer. And in--now I see He is making a sign of the Trinity over someone on this side.

And Our Lady is smiling. Our Lady said:

Our Lady--"This is for the protection of Our dedicated."

Veronica--Oh, and Our Lady now is joining Jesus. She's come over and removed Her Rosary also. Now Jesus is raising His hand in front of Him, though. He's looking down, and He's going to make the--oh, it is the sign of the Trinity: In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.

And Our Lady now is taking Her Rosary and placing Her hand out with the Rosary now. Oh, there are rays coming from Our Lady's hands, in this direction. They're coming right down. Our Lady is standing just about, oh, the middle of the flagpole--over, though, over between the trees and the flagpole. But the lights are still coming down from Her hand that's holding the Rosary. And they're coming down this direction. I can't count the lights, it's so bright. But there seem to be three rays here, directly down here. One . . . I can count three.

And now Jesus is going back behind Our Lady, and He's raising His hand again. And Our Lady now is placing both of Her hands out in front of Her, and rays, the rays are coming right out of Our Lady's hands. They're beautiful. There, there's no way to describe them; they're not like an electric light bulb or anything. They're, they're beautiful. It's almost like clear, clear crystal.

Now Our Lady has now taken Her hands back, and She's placing the Rosary back about Her waist. And now She's coming over with Jesus, and They're standing now at the right side of the flagpole. Now Jesus is . . . Jesus is talking very softly. I am to repeat?

TRUE DIRECTORS OF SOULS

Jesus--"I have a word of direction for all whom I have chosen to represent Me in My houses throughout the world. You must be aware that satan now is loosed within My House. Do not fall into his web. I have placed in your hearts the truth. You will go forth as true directors of souls. You cannot destroy these souls entrusted to you by misdirection. Pray for the light and you will be given the way.

"Delusion, delusion. O heresy, mournful heresy! That I should see this day come when I shall have to intervene with a Chastisement that will claim many souls unprepared.

"My Mother has begged the Father through many earth-ages to hold back this Chastisement, but I must tell you it is not long in coming. My Mother has shed many tears. My heart has been pierced by the sins of mankind. Have I sacrificed Myself in vain for you? How have you repaid Me through the Father? I ask nothing but your love. Do not give yourselves to satan. Return to Me. Accept the graces I give you, or you will be lost."

Veronica--Now Jesus is raising His hands, and He's making the sign of the cross: In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Amen.

Now Our Lady is coming forward, and She is looking very sad.

CATACLYSM APPROACHING

Our Lady--"My child, it is a dark day for mankind. Man has failed the test anew. Murder and violence--sin is a way of life in your country and the world. How long can I hold back the great cataclysm from upon you? Do not think or go about your daily lives without preparation, for it will come upon you suddenly.

"I have warned you, I have given you the plan for your salvation as given to Me by the Father. It is through the merciful heart of the Father that I have come to these sacred grounds as a Mediatrix between God and man. However, your days are counted. Gather your loved ones. Save your soul and the souls of those you love, for many will die in the great flame of the Ball of Redemption.

"You have won a reprieve, My child and My children. Your prayers and your sacrifices rose to Heaven. However, it is but a reprieve. The time will come when the tests and trials will grow great. However, you will go through this period with perseverance and trust, knowing that the eventual victory will be with My Son.

"I promise you as your Mother never to leave your side. Come to Me and I will strengthen you with the graces endowed through the Father upon you.

"I bless you, My children. Continue with your prayers. There are too few in your world who now care."

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

[Pause]

Our Lady is going back over to the right side of the flagpole.

Our Lady--"My final word, My child--though My words shall not be ended until I join with My Son in gathering you all to My bosom--know this: prayer and atonement, sacrifice--what great reward lies ahead for those who will listen to the plan from Heaven!"

 

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.
