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

"Our clergy must not set themselves into the ranks of the ordinary man!  A man of God is not an ordinary man. He is a representative of My Son. As such, he must be looked upon with respect, but this respect must be earned."

July 25, 1974

Eve of St. Anne and St. Joachim

Veronica--There's a large circle of blue light. It's perfectly formed around the flagpole between the two trees. Now the trees are becoming very lighted. The beautiful blue light and the rays of the light are coming down onto the Michael banner. They're very beautiful. The rays are lighting up the whole sky. Oh, and there comes Our Lady now.

Oh, Our Lady is on this large ball; it looks almost like the moon! The ball is so very large. It's solid. It looks solid; it's not transparent. And now it's just gliding across the sky now and coming down by the flagpole. Our Lady is standing on top of it. She's very beautiful. Now Our Lady is looking from the right to the left. Oh!

Our Lady has a long white gown on. It's very beautiful, with a blue sash. The sash is long. It comes almost to the tip of the gown. And about Her head, Our Lady . . . I can see only small strands of Our Lady's hair. They look very brilliant, like a deep brown, but with gold coloring around the edges from the light that's shining from Her covering that's over Her head. Our Lady has a gold trim on the border of the covering, and it's reflecting onto Her face and Her head. Beautiful!

Our Lady--"My child, you will be subject to much trial. As your country and the world progresses into deeper darkness, all who stand forth and acknowledge My Son will meet with much persecution.

"You will refrain from defending yourself by writing or the spoken word. You must understand that they proceed like the ducks in the photograph given to you.

"The man in the mask, he rules over your country. The others are but hirelings to do his bidding.

"You must learn to recognize the faces of evil about you, My child. They will come forward with a semblance of piety and an exterior of the elect.

"You ask Me, My child, for a sign for the world, a major miracle. No, My child, you are not being presumptuous, but you must give to the will of the Father.

"Perseverance and courage will be necessary in the days ahead. The strength and grace will be given to continue the mission.

"The Father has sent Me as a Mediatrix to bring this warning to the world. You must turn from your present ways that offend the Father much, for you are bringing upon mankind a great Chastisement. Many warnings have been given in the past, but they have gone by unrecognized as coming from the Father.

DEDICATED HAVE JOINED WORLD

"The Father will not tolerate the abominations being committed in the houses of God. Many of His dedicated are being permissive in their approach to the salvation of souls. You will not gain or redeem souls by lowering the standards. Many of Our dedicated, clergy and foolish maidens of the nunneries, have given themselves to the world, the flesh, and the devil. How sad that such great graces could go by and be cast aside for the temporary pleasures of the world.

"Your world and your country have gone into a deep darkness of spirit.

"The Warning promised to mankind will not be long in coming. It will be given to you as a merciful act of the Father to awaken mankind before it is too late and the great Chastisement will be sent upon you.

"I have asked many times that all of Our legions of workers unite in a common cause to save souls. We are much grieved to see that there is much dissension among the ranks of workers. Satan will promote confusion and dissatisfaction, for it is his way to disunite. To divide will be to conquer!

"You, My child, will continue your mission under the direction of the Father. As you fight your way through the darkness of the world, you will remain on the narrow road. It will be a road filled with thorns. We cannot promise you a life of great happiness and approval in your world. But, My child, is this what you want? You cannot have both. But I assure you, give up the world and remain dedicated to the work given to you and your reward will be great in Heaven. Do not be swayed or grow grieved by the judgment of mankind upon you, for as they judged My Son, so will you receive the same. Only those who listen to Our direction shall recognize the signs of the time.

SNARES OF SATAN

"It grieves Me much as a Mother, for I am truly a Mother of great sorrow--grieve as I watch My children succumb to all the snares of satan, giving themselves to the lusts of the flesh. Paganism, lewdness, nudity--whatever shall become of you and your children! Unless you keep pure and holy thoughts in your mind and keep your body clean, you cannot enter into the Kingdom of Heaven. Your body is the temple of your eternal spirit. Your eyes are the mirrors for your soul!

"Why do you put abominations--place abominations in your homes to destroy the souls of your children? Why do you not have the monuments of your God? All who keep the monuments in their homes shall be saved.

"My children, I direct you with an earnest heart, as I have great knowledge of the future. This has been given to Me in the Mission from the Father. There will be great trial in your country and the world. Many will give themselves to the world, as they will not have the strength of grace to continue to fight the evil forces of your world. This strength you will be given by being with My Son in constant prayer and union in the Eucharist.

"I spoke, My child, of the elect. We refer to the elect as Our dedicated clergy, men of God chosen from the sheep to be the shepherds. Satan has sent a great delusion upon your world. Satan roams in the House of God. O leaders of Our sheep, shepherds of Our flock, will you stand before the Father and say that your teaching has been pure in His sight? No! Many of you are misleading. Many of you are misled and carry your error into the souls of others. Awaken! Strip the blindness from your eyes and heart! Do not destroy souls for the acknowledgement of man! You will not set up man as an idol to worship.

"Discipline will be needed. A firm foundation has no need to be reinforced with new ideas.

"All manner of confusion is being sown upon your earth by satan. You are like sheep running in every direction. And you will become prey for the wolves in sheep's clothing. You have been given your cross. Wear your sacramentals, be with My Son at the tabernacles of the world, and accept the graces that the Father bestows upon you, and you will not lose the way.

NOT AN ORDINARY MAN

"Our clergy must not set themselves into the ranks of the ordinary man! A man of God is not an ordinary man. He is a representative of My Son. As such, he must be looked upon with respect, but this respect must be earned.

"Many have cast their garments aside. Replace them, for you are in great error!

"Foolish maidens, why have you removed your habits? You are blind to the fact that you no longer receive the respect or the honor. And your leadership is poor; your example is poor to the young. Foolish maidens, replace your habits!

"I repeat, My child, that much discipline will be needed. The manner of clothing that We see being permitted by the parents to be worn by their children is an abomination in the eyes of the Father. They are sinful, they are degrading, and they lead others into sin. Cover your bodies, for they are temples of the Holy Spirit.

"Men shall not dress as women and neither shall women dress as men! Shorts, slacks shall not be worn in the presence of My Son! There will be no rationalization accepted for the commission of these acts of impurity.

"Your country is on the road to its own destruction, as were many countries of the past. Think; explore the history of your country and the world. Your morality is your scale. Strip your country of its morality and your country will fall; the world will fall."

Veronica--Now I see a group of people around a large table. They look like they are in conference, but these people are not from one country. It seems like they're from various countries, and they're having a conference of some kind. And across on the center of the first table there is a placard, a sign, and written on it is: "THE FATE OF THE UNITED STATES." Now these people, they don't look very nice; they look evil. I do recognize some orientals. It is as though they are sitting in and planning the fate of the United States.

Now it's growing dark, and Our Lady is coming forward. Oh, I can't see those people. Now Our Lady is coming forward, and the light is very bright. It's beautiful. Our Lady is standing on the right side of the flagpole.

Our Lady--"My child, you are viewing a great conspiracy. Do not be affrighted by what you see. Place all in the care of My Son.

"Yes, My child, know that there is a conspiracy to remove My message from among mankind. It grieves Me much to know that so many have hardened their hearts and are blind to the truth.

"Go forward, My children, with great hope in the knowledge that the eventual victory will be with My Son. We are in the war of the spirits. It is a far greater war than any human war upon your world, for your soul is eternal.

"My child, it is time that the great message of deceit and error be revealed. The conspiracy of error and deceit will be in the plan of satan and the rulers of darkness to destroy My Son's House and set up a union of one world, one church of God that will be godless!

"Know now that when the world and your Church on earth becomes as one, the end is at hand. The gates of hell open wide. They will claim all, even mitres that have given themselves to worldly gain and the destruction of their sheep. The gates of hell shall not prevail against My Son's House!

"You, My child, Veronica, must lead now a very secluded life. I do not tell you this to bring fear. It is not My mission to bring fear into the hearts of mankind. I must make you knowledgeable of the plan of satan and the eventual methods that the Father will use to cleanse your world.

"The Ball of Redemption will be sent upon mankind. Your world will be baptized by fire.

"All parents must prepare themselves to do great battle with satan. He will pit father against son, mother against daughter, and there will be much dissension within the family. Pray, pray within your home and you will go through this period of sorrow with hope and confidence in the victory over the evil, the evil that has entered into many homes.

"The time will come--parents, listen well: the time will come when your children shall turn you over to be executed, so great will be the power of satan!

"Understand, My child: no man, no power, not even satan is above the Father. However, you cannot understand the ways of the Father. He permits these things that you find so confusing to understand, My child, He permits them for the eventual good. He will turn all evil to good, for no evil is ever triumphant.

"You will meet with great opposition from the clergy, My children. It is sad but a fact that many have lost their way. Pray for them, for they, too, can be recovered with your acts of sacrifice and prayers.

"The Red Hat has fallen and the Purple Hat is being misled. How sorrowful Our hearts are in Heaven!

"The Commandments of the Father have been cast aside. They were given so that your world would live in peace and flourish. Now you seek to invite Exterminatus. Exterminatus, My child, is the demon of destruction known as war.

FLYING SAUCERS

"There is loosed upon your earth countless numbers of demons. The gates of hell are opening wide. The false miracles of the end days promoted by satan are much in evidence upon your world. Science gives many explanations, but they have not come forward with the truth. Your flying saucers are but a supernatural manifestation from satan!

"It would be better, My child, if the clergy would spend their time in not disproving the honorable miracles from God the Father and seek out the truth of these dishonorable, dishonest miracles--that they call miracles--of satan. The miracles from hell are transports, transports of demons!

"Many of the clergy, My child, will not accept My message because they have given themselves to the world.

"The greatest weapon you will have, My child, is prayer, a constant vigilance of prayer throughout your world and your country. You will go forward, My child and My children, protected by My blue mantle, a covering of light, with the cross of My Son in your right hand and the beads of prayer in your left. For in your hands, then, you will hold the greatest weapon in this war of the spirits. Prayer, atonement, and sacrifice, My children. The balance is heavily now to the left. Watch and pray much. The hourglass is running low."

Veronica--Now Our Lady is moving over, She's gliding over to the right side of the flagpole by the trees. Now coming down from behind Her in the sky is Michael. Oh, he is huge! Our Lady looks so tiny, like a little figurine next to Michael. He is so huge--beautiful, though. Oh, Michael has a long spear in his right hand, and he is holding the balance in his left. It's a golden scale, but it's got like a chalice on one side of it. But there's something coming out of the chalice; it looks like blood.

Now Michael is bending forward.

.

St. Michael--"You see, my child, the abominations to the heart, the Sacred Heart of Jesus. No man shall set himself above his God!"

Veronica--Now Our Lady is motioning over, She's coming over to the flagpole now and standing there. And now She's so bright. I can see Her face now, Our Lady. She looks very young.

Our Lady--"My child, please tell the world, spread the message that I gave many years ago. Much of it remains hidden to the world--the message of Fatima. Jacinta has been forgotten. They have buried My message as they will try to bury My message here on these sacred grounds. However, it is too late now, My children. You must warn and awaken the clergy. They are being tested."

Veronica--Now Our Lady is holding out Her Rosary. The Rosary is very beautiful. Oh, and now She's putting Her Rosary up like this--oh, with the crucifix: In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Now Our Lady is bending forward.

Our Lady--"You will sit now, My child."

[Pause]

Veronica--All who are able to, please kneel. Oh, now Our Lady is coming forward. The light is very, very bright. Our Lady is standing over by the right side of the flagpole. She's just over the limbs of the trees. Now behind Her, there's a man dressed in a long brown gown with sandals, brown sandals on his feet. And he has dark brown hair and a beard, and he has nothing on his head. I . . . Oh, Joachim?

Our Lady . . . oh, and next to him there's a lady. She's a little heavier than Our Lady, and she's dressed in a brown and white garment that comes down to her feet. But her feet look like they're also in sandals--oh, brown sandals; they look like skin, brown leather skin. Now about her head there's a scarf. It's brown with white trim. Oh! Oh, it's Saint Anne and Joachim. Oh, and next to them Jesus is smiling, and He's coming now forward.

Now Jesus is placing His hand in front of Him, like this, with the three fingers like this. Now Jesus is raising 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 Jesus is touching His fingers to His mouth. He wants me to listen.

Jesus--"My children, you may expect great opposition in the promotion of My Mother's mission. You will go forward with great perseverance and courage. The grace will be given to all to remain steadfast in the truth.

TEST FOR ALL

"You may expect to be persecuted as I, too, was allowed by the Father to go through this trial. Know that this battle will rage with great ferocity, but the final outcome will be a triumph for all Heaven. You are being tested, and you will be given great trial. Stand fast in your Faith, keep the truth in your heart, and remain on the narrow path. Cast aside all your human inclinations for worldly gain or recognition. You will be treated and you will be forced to grovel, but do this and you will save souls. They will trample you, but know that the prophets before you had to be trampled before they rose above their persecutors. Your example will save many souls, My children, so continue with the Mission from Heaven."

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

Now Jesus is placing His hand out like this, and the rays are coming out. Oh! They--oh, they are very, very bright, very bright! I can barely look into them. They are coming now across the grounds and going out over the people. Oh, they're beautiful! Now Jesus is looking over. He's smiling. Oh!

Jesus--"They will not blind you, My child. Continue to look."

Veronica--Oh, now the rays are going over, and Jesus is pointing over with His hand to the left side of the flagpole. Now Jesus is floating over, and Saint Anne and Joachim and Our Lady are following Him over to the left side of the flagpole. Oh, they do look so happy and peaceful.

Now Our Lady is looking down, and She's extending Her Rosary out. And now Saint Anne is coming up to Our Lady, and she's whispering. And Joachim is standing there by Anne. And now Jesus is looking down, and He's placing His hand out, like this, and 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 forward. He's just between the Michael banner and the trees. He's dressed in a beautiful burgundy-colored robe, and--oh, He is all aglow with light. It's just beautiful! Oh, now He's extending His hand out again, and--oh, the lights are coming out! The lights are brilliant rays coming out from Jesus' hands. Now it's going all across, down, and down onto the back--the road. Oh, and now Jesus is placing His hand now across His chest.

Jesus--"Many graces will be given: graces for conversion, graces for cure. All who will give up their lives will find life."

Veronica--Now Jesus is coming over to the right side of the flagpole. And now He's shifting His garment into His left arm. It looks very heavy. The robe Jesus is wearing over His gown is very heavy, and He is shifting it over to His left arm. And He's placing His hand out again, like this: In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.

Now Jesus is going up. He's rising up, He's just floating up over the flagpole. Now He is bending over, and Our Lady is nodding yes. Now Our Lady is saying:

Our Lady--"You will continue, My children, with your prayers of atonement. They are sorely needed."

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.
