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

"You will read the Book of love and life, the Bible. However, you will not place your souls in jeopardy by reading printings after the year of earth 1964."

March 24, 1974

Eve of the Annunciation of the Blessed Virgin Mary

Veronica--There's a great light now coming forward through the sky. The sky is opening up, and the light is so brilliant that it, it's hard to watch. Oh, Our Lady now is coming forward. She has on the most beautiful white gown. It's a pure white, with golden trimming all around the edges of Her robe, the outer robe that reaches from Her feet, across Her head, down to the other side. About Her waist there is a golden cord, and there's a large Rosary. The beads are very large. Our Lady has it tied to the golden cord on Her right side.

Now Our Lady is standing with Her hands together in prayer. Our Lady says:

Our Lady--"Follow Me, My child. The thumbs are crossed, the fingers extended to touch. It is in this manner that you will pray, My child."

Veronica--Our Lady now is looking about Her. She's looking down among the people. She looks very sad; Our Lady looks very sad.

Our Lady--"My child, there is great sadness in Our hearts, for so many souls are being taken into the abyss. They have destroyed their chances forever to enter into the eternal Kingdom of God.

"Many of these souls have gone down the wide road because they pursued the lusts of the flesh. If you do not live in the spirit, you will live in the ways of the world. This way is a road to destruction, for satan has now gained control of the wide road.

CHILDBEARING THE GLORY OF WOMAN

"As a Mother, My heart is torn, for the example of many mothers on earth is poor. Woman, who has come from Adam, would regain her glory by childbearing. This, too, has she cast aside for the ways of darkness. No longer does she seek to purge her soul and to enter the Kingdom of the Father. Her sins multiply, for no longer does she not only miss the opportunity of purging, but she has committed murder! All the evils of the flesh.

"Women of the world reject their places as helpmates to their husbands. What manner of creature have they become? The Day of the Lord approaches fast upon you, for what has been foretold is coming to pass.

"Immorality, uncleanness, destruction of the temple of God--the blackest of evils have entered into the hearts of many. The children--whatever shall become of the children? The teachers--lying teachers, with falsehoods, half-truths, and abominations!"

Veronica--Now coming forward there is a man. He has quite long hair and a beard, a short beard. And he's carrying a Book, and he has a long stick in his hand. And Our Lady is now turning towards him. Our Lady says:

Our Lady--"My child, recognize Saul, whom you will know as Paul. His words are the words of truth, but they must not be rewritten to satisfy the base nature of human man."

Veronica--Now Paul is looking up and down. He doesn't look very happy. He has quite a stern look upon his face. And he now is leaning forward and saying:

NO WOMAN ON THE ALTAR

St. Paul--"Repeat what you hear, my child, and shout it from the rooftops. No woman shall be on the altars of God! Disobedience, lack of respect for the Holy Father--what will this bring you to but your own destruction! A Church that falls into darkness will fall. The foundation will rock, but the foundation shall not be destroyed. For it will be renewed and built as it was ordained by the Father.

"Much tribulation lies ahead, but these trials have been brought upon you by man. As it was in the days of Noe, so it is in your day that man is prideful and arrogant, seeking to place scientific knowledge above the Father. Rationalization for sin, so that sin now is a way of life! Souls in darkness, homes in darkness, and churches in darkness--whatever will become of you? You ask for the wrath of the Father upon you!

"All that is rotten will fall! You have been given the time to mend your ways and turn back onto the narrow road. You are not without the truth, but many have sold their souls to get to the head, preferring the things of the world and not of the spirit. You cannot live in the world and live in the spirit, for you cannot have both.

"The world now belongs to satan. The spirit of light leads to the eternal Kingdom of God. You will live in the spirit of light. False teachers among you take the light from you and bring you into deeper darkness. You will read the Book of love and life, the Bible. However, you will not place your souls in jeopardy by reading printings after the year of earth 1964."

Veronica--Now it's growing very dark. And the man with the Book is stepping now . . . he's floating; he doesn't step. He's standing now behind Our Lady, Who is reaching to Her side and bringing out Her Rosary. Her Rosary is very large, very large. The beads are white. But as Our Lady is turning now and looking down upon the people, the beads have a beautiful pink glow. Now hanging from the beads is a golden crucifix. Our Lady now is picking it up, like this, and extending it now in front of Her and blessing the people: In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.

Now I see great light coming from the sky. Our Lady is standing over to the left, but there are beams of light coming down from the sky onto the grounds. They're very beautiful, very beautiful. They go into the sky beyond what I can see. Oh, but now the sky is opening up, and I see a great many figures. They're all dressed in white robes. They're coming forward.

Now Our Lady is coming over to the center of the flagpole, and She's bending down.

SENT BEFORE TRIBUNALS

Our Lady--"My child, you see now the martyrs of old. Unless you can pick up your cross and follow My Son, you cannot join the Kingdom. Upon earth your road will be bathed in blood, but in this manner will your spirit be cleansed, and you will be refreshed in the Kingdom and clothed in garments of purity. You will be forced to stand forth as disciples of My Son, bearing witness to the truth. Many will be sent before the tribunals. Do not be afeared, My child, of what you will say, for the Spirit of truth will enter upon you, and it is through this voice-box that the truth will be known.

"Satan has set upon earth modes of life for your children that are soul destructors. Looking for My Son, they go aimlessly in every direction and leave the narrow road, wandering onto the path that will lead them to satan.

"In your country and throughout the world, We look upon abominations being committed in the name of religion. My Son's heart is torn, for not only has He been placed upon the tree in the days of great suffering, but now He is recrucified in the world and in many of His houses, churches.

"Recognize the faces of evil among you. They will not come in their true form, but they will parade themselves as angels of light, angels of mercy. By their fruits will they eventually be known to you, for the light will cast out the darkness.

"The Warning that will come upon man and the great Chastisement will be soon upon you. It is in the merciful heart of the Father that your time has been extended, a time to make amendment of your lives, cleanse your souls of all sin, mortal and venial. Pray much; sacrifice your senses.

FASTING AND PRAYER

"My child, it is with great sorrow that We must look into the hearts of Our dedicated. They do not know the light is dim. Many of these demons cannot be cast out without fasting and much prayer. Prayer and fasting--substituted, My child, by the ways of the world.

"Men who are representatives of My Son in His houses must now gather the flock and replenish their starving souls. It is apparent, My child, that many care more for filling their coffers than to feed their souls. The love of money has destroyed many. The love of power, power for the things of the world, has destroyed many. You cannot have both. You will not have this world and the Kingdom of God! For when you leave over the veil, you will enter the kingdom of the prince of darkness, or you will join Us with great joy in the Kingdom of the Father.

"Continence, My child, is the sacrifice asked by the Father. You cannot divide yourselves. There must be a full dedication to the will of God. If you care more for man and cannot turn to the light and follow My Son, you are not a true representative of My Son. For He who cares more for man cannot give his heart to My Son.

"My child, Our pleas fall on deaf ears. How long must I beg for chastity when immorality reigns upon your world? Foolish virgins, whatever will become of you? You have become confounded. You have cast aside your garments of honor. Why have you cast them aside? Are you ashamed to be known as spouses of Christ? Are you not becoming brides of satan?"

Veronica--I see a large globe now, a very large ball. It's coming from out of the sky. It looks like a globe, yes, of the world. And now I see a world covered with darkness. But there are lights, flickers of light in various places. Now Our Lady is coming forward and pointing to the globe.

Our Lady--"Those lights, My child, are My little armies. Though small now in number, they will grow unto the coming of My Son. The ultimate victory against the forces of evil are with Us, My children. Go forth as disciples of My Son with this knowledge in your heart that the victory lies with Us. For the time will come when I shall crush forever the head of satan.

"My child, make it known to the world that woman must return to her place as woman, for she has been misled. Was it not woman who fell to satan in the beginning?

"Her disobedience to the will of God brings much sorrow upon her and her children. It would be better now, My children, if woman would be silent, for she does not know the road she is traveling. It is only satan who has set her to rebel against her destiny.

"Know, My child, that satan has many faces. He will enter, and his agents will enter into the body of any unclean soul--man, woman, or child, to work his will. Therefore, My child, you will exercise great caution in opening your door to strangers.

"I cannot stress, My children, the necessity of your wearing your sacramentals. Many graces have been given to these objects of God to protect you from infiltration by satan and his agents.

"We are at war, a great war, a war of the spirits. Your armor will be that you clothe yourselves with the word of God. The Father has set the path for you. He commands that you do not cast aside His rules of discipline."

MOSES

Veronica--Now there is coming forward--oh, it's a very old man. He has white hair, very white, and it's quite heavy. And he has a very thick beard. It's very white. He looks like a very old man. And he looks very sad. Oh, he is holding in his left hand . . . and it looks very heavy; he's having difficulty now. Oh, now it's being lifted up by a hand, like an unseen hand. But now there is a light behind it. Oh, it's an angel. I recognize it's a very large angel. Oh, it's Raphael. Oh! Now--oh, the man's name is Moses.

Now he is leaning forward and holding two large slabs of like concrete that are together, welded together, like, almost in book form, and pointing with his finger. Oh, they are the Commandments of the Father.

Now the man, the little old man, oh, he's just--

Oh, Our Lady says:

Our Lady--"He is not that short, My child, in stature."

Veronica--Oh, now he's coming closer. I can see him more clearly. Oh, yes, he's not that short. He is quite tall. Now he is pointing to the writing. The writing is . . . it is not in English. I can't read it, but I can recognize numbers. And he is pointing to the writing, and he says:

Moses--"These are the Commandments of the Father. Break one and the gates of hell are open to you.

"You will place these in prominence in your household. Would I be upon your earth now I would shed bitter tears of sorrow, for I see among you a renewal of despicable abominations that caused me great sorrow upon earth. You hasten the coming of the Lord high God upon you. The wrath of the Father shall descend upon you."

Veronica--Now he is turning towards Our Lady, Who is looking at him sadly. And he is saying:

Moses--"Were it not for the intervention of the Queen of Heaven, you would have received already your just punishment. Know now that your days are counted. Repent! Turn back from your road of sin. Enter into the light. Prayer, atonement, and sacrifice--is this too much to ask of you in the face of what lies ahead of you?"

Veronica--Now it's growing very dark, very dark. And oh, there it is. Oh, my goodness! I see--there's a large ball of fire. It's hurtling through the sky now with great speed, and it's throwing off chunks of fire and rock.

And now I'm standing out with Our Lady. Oh, it's like standing out in a great space, and I can look down and I see the earth, and I see this great ball of fire. And it's coming very fast towards the earth.

Now Our Lady has taken me by the hand, and we are moving over to the other side of the earth. Oh, there are great fires upon earth; death, plague, misery.

Oh, and now Our Lady is pointing, and She is turning now, pointing to the sky above us. And She says:

Our Lady--"War is a punishment for man's sin."

Veronica--Our Lady says much prayer, much sacrifice is needed, for there will be a great War. It will touch the lives of every man, woman, and child on earth.

. . . forward, and She is standing at the left side of the flagpole. Our Lady looks very sad, and She is shaking Her head.

Our Lady--"My child, you see man's inhumanity to man. This is what results from the loss of the light. The Father chastises those He loves, permitting the separation of the sheep from the goats. Those who have been called into the light have great obligation to go forward and gather the straying sheep, their brothers and sisters who have fallen into the darkness. Great rejoicing there will be if you bring one back, just one back to Us.

"Many graces have been given. Many graces will be given, graces for conversion and cure, from these grounds that have been chosen by the Father as a center of atonement.

DAY OF THE LORD

"You are approaching the Day of the Lord. You must be prepared. The Father has granted Me this occasion to come to you as a Mediatrix between God and man. Do not take My words idly, for I have spoken to you in truth of what is to be. Prayer, atonement, and sacrifice. Divest yourselves of all that is worldly, for it is only in this way that you will stay on the narrow road. It is difficult, My children, once you leave this road, to come back. It takes much sacrifice, much prayer, much penance.

"My Son has given Himself to you, for His Word became flesh. I offered Myself as a Mother so that the Word would reach the world. Humbly I stand before you as the Mother of your God and beg you, as a Mother of earth, to listen and hasten to take action upon My word, for your time grows short.

"All who hear the call of the Spirit, the Holy Spirit, must not hesitate, for many will not have this opportunity again.

"The word will be preached by many throughout the world. The Father has sent among you many voice-boxes to bring the words of truth and the words of guidance.

"Yes, the road, the narrow road is one of suffering. You will be mocked, you will be spit at, you will be laughed at, made an object of scorn, but you will pick up your cross and follow the way of your Lord."

Veronica--Now the sky is growing very dark. Our Lady is going over to the left side. She is standing now just above the trees. Now there is a large ball, a globe-like ball, coming down now out of the sky, and Our Lady is floating now up onto the ball. And She is smiling. Oh, it's very windy up there, too, because Our Lady's gown is blowing. And now She is looking down, and Our Lady says:

Our Lady--"You will now continue with your prayers of atonement, My child. Jesus will join Me in blessing the sacramentals."

[Pause]

Our Lady--"You will pray much for Our Vicar, the Holy Father, who faces great persecution. There are many agents of darkness who are close to him--the false faces of evil about him. You will remain faithful and true to Our Vicar. Accept not the stories, the tales of deception that the enemy sends among you.

"I bring you the truth. Keep this in your heart.

"Scientific achievement in your age--much has been promoted by the knowledge of satan.

"You must caution your young that astrology is of satan. It is a false science created by the prince of darkness to take the knowledge of God and His Kingship from the hearts of the young. Know, nothing in your universe governs your life but the Father Who has created you. No stone, no universal light--not the light of the Spirit, of the Holy Spirit, but the elements of your universe--can govern your destiny. The Father has every hair counted on your head. He knows your past, your present, and your future.

"There are many false prophets among you now. Recognize them by their fruits. Astrology is for the unbeliever. The children must not be misguided.

15 MINUTES READING BIBLE

"I have asked, and I repeat anew, that you will spend at least fifteen minutes in reading the Scriptures in the Book of life, the Bible. This knowledge you will need to fight the errors of your age.

"Man must not change the words in the Book of life to suit, to bring out the base weakness of human nature, for the words as written must remain unchanged. The word of God is eternal."

Veronica--I see a great body of water, and I see two shorelines. On one side I see multitudes of figures dressed in white. They're carrying candles. And on the other side, the other shore, I see horrible figures. They are horrible. They look like half man, half human, but they have the feet and the hands and the heads of, of horrible creatures--demons.

And Our Lady is pointing at the demon-shaped figures, and She says:

Our Lady--"They are polluting the waters. The flowers are wilting. The stalks cannot grow strong."

Veronica--Our Lady is referring to the peoples of earth.

Our Lady--"The flowers are God's children in His garden of souls on earth."

Veronica--I'm very upset. Our Lady is pointing, and some of these creatures have . . . have . . . have habits on them. Some of these creatures are, are dressed like priests.

Now Our Lady is coming forward. And She is saying--Her voice is very soft, very low. Speaking very quietly, Our Lady is now.

Our Lady--"It is in sadness, My child, for even Our dedicated are given the choice for the salvation of their souls. Great graces are given, but many are cast aside. This is of man's free will."

Veronica--Now the light is getting very, very bright. And I see--oh, now Jesus is coming over. And Our Lady now is moving fast over to the right side of the flagpole. Now everyone who is able, please kneel.

Now Jesus is standing, and He's smiling. Oh, He is very beautiful. The light is very strong. Now Our Lady is standing just on Jesus' right side, on the right side of the flagpole.

Now Jesus has on a pair of . . . I can see His bare feet in His sandals. And He has a darker garment; it's almost a brown, His gown. It's a deep sort of beige, but almost a very light tan. And He has a robe now. The robe is very red, a brilliant red, with gold trimming. And it's tied about His neck with a gold-braided band, and from the band there is hanging a wooden cross.

Now Jesus is coming over, He's coming down by the tree on the right side.

Now Jesus is saying:

Jesus--"If you will extend your sacramentals, I will give, through the Father and the Spirit, graces for conversion and cure--graces for the repatriation of the straying sheep."

Veronica--Now Jesus is looking down, and He is smiling.

Jesus--"You do not have to open your packages, for I can see into them."

Veronica--Now Jesus is raising His hand in front of Him, like this, with His three fingers, 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 Jesus is coming very--He's coming down closer. Oh, and He's now moving. Our Lady is going over to the left side. He's still on our right side of the flagpole. But now Our Lady is touching the flagpole with Her Rosary. And Jesus now is now raising His hand, and He's now blessing in the sign of the cross: In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.

Now Jesus is going over, following Our Lady. Now Our Lady has stopped now. And Jesus has gone ahead of Her, and She's standing behind Him.

And now there is a great light coming from the sky. Oh, it's Michael. Michael is now coming down and standing right beside Our Lady. And now Jesus has gone forward on the left side of the flagpole. Oh! And now Jesus is extending His hand now high above His head, like this, and He's now making the sign of the Trinity: In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.

Now He's placing His hand out. He's placing His hand out, and there is a light, a tremendous light coming down on the left side of the flagpole. It's now hitting just about beyond center, in the back. Now He is raising His hand over His head now, and the light is fading. Jesus says:

Jesus--"You wonder, My child, what the Father has in store for the individual. That you will find in time."

Veronica--Now He's going over to the tree. Now Jesus is standing by the tree, and Our Lady is behind Him. And Michael is standing there. He has the balance, the scale, in his left hand, and in his right hand there is a large, spear-like-looking stick. Yes, it's a spear. And he's standing behind Our Lady.

Now Jesus is placing His hand in front of Him and looking down now. He's just by the tree. In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.

Now they're turning, and Our Lady and Jesus and Michael. Michael--they're following one after the other. They're floating over. Now Jesus is turning, and He's looking down. Now He looks very sad. And Jesus is saying:

Jesus--"My Mother has given repeated warnings. Many have chosen to cast them aside. Soon there will be few words, and you will find that the Father has sent His Chastisement upon you.

LIVING BREAD

"Hasten, harken, and listen, for you have been warned and you must now take fast action. Save yourselves and the souls of those you love. Come to Me, as My heart is extended to you all. I gave My Body. I am with you in Body and Spirit. Do not cast Me aside, for I am the living Bread of your life. Without Me you cannot enter into the Kingdom of the Father.

"Were you to know the glories of the Kingdom, you would run fast and turn away quickly from the evils of the world that has given itself to satan. For beyond your universe there lies the greatest joys, joys far beyond all expectation or conceivable in your human mind. This We give you for the asking.

"Come to Me, My children, for I am very lonely. I am visited only by the few. You must drink of My Blood and eat of My Body, or you will not have the light within you."

Veronica--Now Jesus is raising His hand again: In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Amen.

Now Jesus and Our Lady are going, They are rising. Now They are just above the figure on the flagpole, the eagle. And Our Lady now is coming down and going over to the left side of the flagpole.

Our Lady--"Continue now, My child, with the prayers that I have directed you to start."

Veronica--Blessed be God.

Blessed be His holy Name.

Blessed be Jesus Christ, true God and true man.

Blessed be the Name of Jesus.

Blessed be His most Sacred Heart.

Blessed be His most Precious Blood.

Blessed be Jesus in the most holy Sacrament of the altar.

Blessed be the Holy Spirit, the Paraclete.

Blessed be the great Mother of God, Mary most holy.

Blessed be Her holy and Immaculate Conception.

Blessed be Her glorious Assumption.

Blessed be the name of Mary, Virgin and Mother.

Blessed be Saint Joseph, Her most chaste spouse.

Blessed be God in His angels and in His saints.

FALSE PASTORS

Our Lady wants it known at this time, and repeated anew, that when She speaks of fleeing from false pastors, She means that you do not adopt their errors. However, you must eat of the living Body and Blood of Jesus in the Eucharist in order to retain the light within your souls. Therefore, do not abandon the tabernacles of the world, for it is the true foundation of the Church, Our Lady says. You must eat of this Bread, which is the spiritual and living Body and Blood of Jesus, in order to reach the Kingdom. For if you do not, your soul is empty and not fortified against the onslaughts of satan. And as you come closer to the Kingdom and the light, the more heavier the attacks of satan will be upon you.

The greatest grace that can be given to mankind has been given when Jesus and Our Lady offered Her most precious Son as a Sacrifice for the sins of man. Therefore, He gives you Himself anew. So do not abandon the tabernacles of the world.

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

[Pause]

TEN COMMANDMENTS

At this time Our Lady wants a repetition of the Commandments of the Father, that have been forgotten by many. These Commandments must be kept and adhered to, for they are the Commandments, when broken, that give you to satan.

1. I Am the Lord, thy God. Thou shalt not have strange gods before Me.

2. Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord, thy God in vain.

3. Remember thou keep holy the Sabbath day.

4. Honor thy father and thy mother.

5. Thou shalt not kill.

6. Thou shalt not commit adultery.

7. Thou shalt not steal.

8. Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor.

9. Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's wife.

10. Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's goods.

These are the Commandments of God, and they shall not be broken. 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.
