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

"The antichrist forces . . . are out now in great numbers invading Our convents and seminaries."

July 25, 1975

Eve of St. Anne and St. Joachim

Veronica--The sky was very pink, but now the clouds are--just seem to be blowing away. They're separating, and the sky directly over us is becoming a blue. It's a deeper blue. I haven't seen the light coming through yet, of Our Lady. It's almost like a steel door.

Oh, now the light is coming from the left side of us. It's a brilliant, bright light. It feels--there's no way I can explain it, Mother. It's a glass-like, piercing light, beautiful! Clear as the water, crystalline and pure.

Now--oh, Our Lady is coming forward. Oh, Our Lady is very beautiful. The sun is shining brightly above Her. Oh, it's not the sun, it's the light that is coming from Our Lady.

"Please, remove the light. Our Lady said to please do not focus the light upon me."

Our Lady--"My child, we must exercise our human knowledge to prevent error in judgment. You must not set yourself to be an object to all, for the enemies of your God have taken it upon themselves to seek to remove you and silence your voice.

"From Heaven We may direct you, My child, but you must also follow Our direction. You must not grow careless in security, My child."

Veronica--Now Our Lady is pointing upward to this huge door. It's a steel-like door, very large, and above it, I notice it's like an area covered by stars. I believe they're stars; they're brilliant white lights. And--oh, now Our Lady--

Our Lady--"My child, I will explain to you. What you are viewing is the gate to the Kingdom--a mystical gate, a supernatural gate that man cannot transcend until he comes to Us in the spirit.

"The Kingdom of Heaven exists, just as your earth exists, My children. However, none can come across into the Kingdom until they depart from their earthly body. Your body, My children, are but shells housing your spirit, the life within you.

"The agents of hell, My children, abound upon your earth. You must recognize the faces of evil about you. Do not be fooled by those who come to you as angels of light, but have ravenous hearts. They often assume the identity of Our clergy. They are not of the spirit of light or life, for they are of the spirit of darkness and agents of the prince of darkness, satan.

"You must work, pray, and make atonement to the Eternal Father, for the time is growing short. Do not be slowed down, My child, by those who cast disparaging remarks upon your work. No man shall you be accountable to, My child.

ETERNAL FATHER SHALL GUIDE IN SECRET

"The Eternal Father shall guide you in secret, and you will continue your acts of mercy and the salvation of Our children in secret. The acclaim of your world will not be an honor to seek, My child.

"If We could approach you in all truth, My children, We would ask you to remove your worldly entrapments and cover yourselves with ashes and sackcloth. Remove all signs of worldliness from your exterior, and you will place upon yourselves the garments of sanctity.

"Learn a simple lesson, My child. You will meet with rejection by many, for by rejecting My message they can place it as far from mind as possible. When one does not wish to accept a truth, they try to disprove and sully this truth.

"The knowledge has been given to mankind that a great Chastisement will be sent soon upon your world. It is in this manner that the Eternal Father will separate the sheep from the goats.

"You must pray much for your clergy. A House, a Church in darkness, My children, will shut its doors, for a Church in darkness wears a band of death about it.

"You are much concerned, My child, of the emissary whom you sent to the Eternal City. Do not be concerned, for the Eternal Father in Heaven has a plan for him. We cannot reveal all to you, My child, at this time, for then the enemies of your God would take action against you. The Eternal Father has a plan for all, and I assure you, My child, it will appear before your very eyes.

REMOVE WORLDLY CLOTHING

"We expect now, at this time, at this late date, My child, that all who follow the road to Heaven will divest themselves, remove all worldliness from their presence and cast aside for good example to all, the worldly clothing that has been forced upon them by satan. Their example must be one of holiness. You must avoid all occasions of sin.

"My children, many trials will be sent to you in the coming days. These trials will turn many back to the light.

"You must pray much for the leaders of your country and the countries of the world. As I have told you countless times, many will disappear from the face of the earth.

"You will continue to receive your photographs of knowledge. Many are given in secret, and many are for the general exposition to the world, My child.

"Do not be concerned of those who reject these manifestations. It is only because the Eternal Father has not chosen to open their eyes to the truth. It is a grace, My child, a special grace, to be able to see, for many are blind.

"As you go through these coming days, My child and My children, you will give the Message from Heaven to all. Speak once, and if not hastened, speak no more; but keep in heart that it may not be his decision. By that I mean, My child, that many are playing 'follow the leader' onto the road to damnation. They are swimming downstream like ducks, heading for the destruction of the rapids.

"Your country and the world is heading fast to a dangerous climax, My child.

STANDARDS NOT TO BE LOWERED

"You must not compromise your Faith. You will not win souls for Heaven by lowering your standards, My child and My children, and joining the enemies of your God.

"In the past years of your earth time, I have begged for the conversion of Russia. My words have been taken lightly then, as they are now by many. You must pray for the conversion of Russia, for she will send her errors throughout the world.

"Your country has set itself onto the road to destruction, for they--your leaders have not taken action against the murderers set loose in your society. The murders of the young, the innocent unborn, have not gone by uncounted by the Eternal Father. Measure for measure shall you be given the reward of your--"

Veronica--Oh, as Our Lady is pointing now up, I see--oh, my goodness! Oh! Oh, my! I see that--I know it's a comet. It, it's a round ball of fire, and it's traveling at a very fast pace through the sky. And it's so hot! I can feel the heat, the great heat of this long tail. As it's going through space, it's shooting out a tremendous fiery tail. Oh!

Our Lady--"I repeat, My child, your country shall not escape the destruction of the fires, as you will be planet struck.

"As in the days of Noe, My child, many shall reject the Message from Heaven.

"We do not send you a message of fear, but a message of fact. Repent; make atonement now while you have the time, for the hour of reckoning is coming. It is at hand, My child.

"For the love of money and power of short duration, many have sold their souls to get to the head.

"Saint Michael must be returned to the houses of God, for he is the guardian of the Faith.

"The word of the Eternal Father, your God, is everlasting. He knows no beginning and no end. Therefore, you shall not change the words of God to suit mankind and their basic carnal nature. You must change man to bring him under the rule set forth by his God.

"The Eternal Father, My children, has given you a simple lesson of life. The Commandments must be followed, for shall you break one, you break them all.

REMOVE PORNOGRAPHY FROM SCHOOLS

"You must remove the reading matter, the books filled with obscenities--pornography, you call it, My child--errors and degradation, soul destructors. You must clean your schools. Remove the teachers who promote the destruction of souls.

"Parents, as guardian of your children's souls, you must have the courage to come forward and act upon this, for it will be you as parents who shall cry tears of bitter remorse when you know that these children have been lost forever to the eternal Kingdom. For many shall fall into the abyss. The prince of darkness, satan, shall claim many young souls.

"The Eternal Father is always the final judge; but, My children, do not be misguided by the fallacy, the lie from the father of all liars, satan, that there is no hell or purgatory. Shall you come here, over the veil, and learn this lesson sadly?

"Only a pure and cleansed spirit can enter into the Kingdom of the Eternal Father, your Heaven. This cleansing shall take place upon your earth in suffering, or over the veil in purgatory. Hell is also eternal. Hell is permanent, My children."

Veronica--Now Our Lady is floating. She doesn't walk. She's rising higher up into the sky. And now Our Lady has Her Rosary in Her right hand, and She's pointing. She's holding the Rosary forward, and She's pointing over to the right side. And oh, coming down now, oh, is a lady, another lady and a man. Oh, I know they are Saint Joachim and Anne.

Oh, Saint Anne, she's heavier than Our Lady, and she's wearing a different type of garment. Saint Anne has on a grayish-white type of garment with a rope-like cord about her waist. And she has on a shorter scarf; it's like a whole cape going about her head, sheet-like, and reaching just about to the center of her inner garment.

Now Saint Joachim, he has on a sheet-like garment. It's one piece. He hasn't got a cape over it, but the sleeves are very loose. He's completely covered, and his garment is also tied about the waist. And he has on brown leather, like skin--brown, skin-like leather, I think it is, sandals with a strap that's going through his toes, and also a band. I can see the band, for Saint Joachim's sandals are just coming out from under the hem of his garment.

Now Saint Joachim and Anne are going over to Our Lady, and Our Lady is smiling. Oh, the light, the very bright light now is all about them. They're standing in this--it's like an arc, a beautiful crystalline type of--oh, light. It's very hard upon my eyes.

Now Our Lady is touching Her lips with Her finger.

FOLLOW GOOD EXAMPLE

Our Lady--"My children, follow the example in family of My mother and dear father. Children must respect their elders. There is no unity in the homes upon earth, for they have forgotten the example given to them.

"We hear, My children, cries of 'love' throughout your world, but is there the true meaning of love being exercised, or is it just a word that mankind uses in his seeking, his searching for the truth but never finding it, My children? Oh, yes, My children, only love can be given by the Eternal Father the true meaning.

"My Son gave you a perfect example of His love. In His time of suffering many also rejected Him, My child, and many now have forgotten His suffering."

Veronica--Now Saint Anne is coming over. She's standing by Our Lady's right side, and Saint Joachim now is on Our Lady's left side. It is so beautiful!

St. Anne--"Parents--"

Veronica--Oh, Saint Anne now is touching her eyes. She feels--I know she feels very sad.

St. Anne--"Parents, you must teach your children. Do not send them out into your world to be instructed by the father of liars who has done his work well in your schools.

"Your home must be a refuge for your children. Place about them the things of your God. Remove from your homes the trappings of the world, soul destructors--soul destructors, My children, that have been created by satan to capture the souls of your children.

"Sin has become a way of life. Awaken now from your blindness, my children upon earth. You are sending your children onto the road to destruction!"

Veronica--Now Our Lady is going up high into the sky, and Saint Joachim and Anne are following Her.

And now Our Lady is pointing with Her Rosary in Her hand over to the right side of the sky, and there are a group of nuns. I can see they're nuns by their habits; they have on the long habits. And Our Lady now is going over with Saint Joachim and Anne.

Our Lady--"You must, My child, hasten to gather your sisters. They must be strengthened in their Faith. They must not succumb to the errors that abound now in the houses of God throughout the world--in the seminaries and the convents, My child.

"The antichrist forces of the agents from hell are out now in great numbers invading Our convents and seminaries, My child. You must hasten to reach your pastors with the message."

Veronica--Now it's growing quite dark. I can't see the nuns. Oh, but now one of the nuns is raising her hand. Oh, it's Saint Theresa. I recognize her now. Oh!

St. Theresa--"Veronica, there's great discord in the convents. You must encourage them by prayer.

HABITS TO BE WORN TO THE FLOOR

"Tell my sisters not to fall into the errors of the world. They must not join the world, or they will be lost to us here in Heaven. They must place the garments of holiness upon themselves--bring their habits to the floor.

"All signs of worldliness must be removed from their persons, for when they join the world, they will no longer be brides of the Christ.

"If a bride of Christ gives herself without change to the world, she will find it difficult to return and accept the truth, for she will become blinded. Please pray, my sisters and brothers, for those who are losing the way."

Veronica--Now Our Lady is coming forward, and She is making the sign of the cross: In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Amen.

Our Lady--"The world is going fast into darkness, darkness of the spirit. Remember the words of My Son to you, My child: 'This, My child, is what will be: in darkness will they seek the way. In darkness, will they seek the way?' Repeat this, My child, the words of My Son: 'This, My child, is what will be: in darkness, will they seek the way?'

CHURCH IN U.S.TO SPLIT

"You must remain united with your Holy Father In Rome. Your country, America, the United States, will soon face a splitting up in their Faith. This will accomplish nothing, My children, for united you will stand and divided you will fall.

"A House that has set and divided itself cannot be on a firm foundation. You will gain nothing by compromising with the enemy.

"My child, repeat the words of My Son: 'When I return, shall I find even a small flicker of faith left in your world? Teachers In My houses, shall you stand before Me and say that your teaching has been pure in My sight? I will say: Away from Me, you workers of iniquity, into the fires of eternal damnation!'

"Yes, My child, Our children must read the Book of life, the Bible, for knowledge is power. You will read in the spirit and ask the Eternal Father for guidance that you do not fall into the web of satan that will result in blindness and falling into error, casting aside the truth for invention, experimentation, humanism, modernism, and satanism.

"Man has cast aside the knowledge of the life eternal--the supernatural. He shall rationalize himself out of the Kingdom of God. Only too soon must he go across the veil and shall be rejected for his casting aside the truth.

"For those who have been given the light, My child, much is asked of them. They must pray for their sisters and brothers. Many must carry heavy crosses. Your suffering in the light leads to the Kingdom of Heaven and a crown--a crown, My child."

Veronica--Now I see forming in the sky a very large chalice. And on the chalice now there are lights forming; they're three glowing candles.

Now above the chalice there is a huge face of a clock. The hands are pointing to the four and the eight, the twelve and the six. It is the sign of Armageddon, the sign of the Antichrist.

Our Lady--"It is time now, My child, that those of true knowledge and Faith must work, do penance, make atonement so that you may convert the unbeliever. The graces shall be given to all who ask, graces for cures and graces for conversion.

"My sacred grounds in Bayside are held in abeyance, My child. The Eternal Father has the plan for all.

"You will pray for your bishop and your clergy."

Veronica--Now Our Lady is extending Her Rosary out, like this, and She has the cross on the end of Her hand, and She's making the sign of the cross: In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Amen.

Our Lady--"You will be seated now, My child, and await My Son."

[Pause]

Veronica--All who are able, please kneel. Now just above us, over Our Lady's statue, the sky is becoming very white. But it's bordered--the white section of the sky is bordered on each side by a long--it's a wreath. I know it's like a wreath, but on each side it's like a long piece of wheat growing.

Now it's becoming very bright in the sky between the two pieces of wheat, like--oh, they're almost like a long bough. I can't explain it. Now coming--oh, the light is opening up. It's like a pinpoint of light that's opened up until the whole sky is surrounded by this luminous light. Now coming through the light--oh, it's Jesus! Oh!

Jesus has on His--it's a white garment, inner garment, and He has a belt about His waist. It's tied very loosely. The belt looks like it might be like of a hemp, or cord. And Jesus has on His feet now--He has on sandals. I can't see what's holding them on; I can only see the bottoms of Jesus' sandals. And Jesus has His burgundy-colored cloak about His neck, and it's falling loosely now behind Him. And Jesus is coming forward, and He's placing His hand out in front of Him, like this, and I can see the wounds in His hand. Oh!

Jesus--"My child, I will not repeat the mystery of Faith.

"I have watched the world going into deep darkness of spirit. The manner in which man conducts himself in My houses throughout the world have caused great suffering to My Mother and other personages of the Kingdom of the Father.

"I do not have to repeat at this time the word of warning given to you by My Mother to earth's peoples. This warning must be acted upon now, for there is little time left to mankind.

"For all who have come to Me through love, I extend a grace of perseverance. We bestow upon you in your faith graces for cure and conversion."

Veronica--Now Jesus is placing His hand out like this, and He's turning it, like this, and there are rays coming out by the hands--from His hand. But the rays also seem to be coming out from His chest. And they're coming down now in this direction, going past me, down onto the group of people on this side.

Jesus--"You see, My child, the burning fires of My heart. My Blood has been shed for the salvation of mankind. Now My wounds are bleeding anew. Is there not one who will solace Me? My hands are bleeding; My heart is sobbing. I long to see My creation and be filled with joy."

Veronica--Now Jesus is going over to the left side, our left side. Now He's extending His hands out. The light is dying down; it seems to be just disappearing from this direction now. And Jesus is placing His hand out in front of Him, like this: In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.

Now Jesus is moving over. He's just floating; He seems to glide right on the air. And He's just above Our Lady's statue now and placing His hand out in front of Him, like this: In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.

Now Jesus is smiling. It's a sad smile. He's not laughing; He's just smiling very quietly and sadly, but--and He's looking over now by the trees. Now Jesus is going over and He's looking down now, placing His hand out, like this: In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.

Now Jesus is coming over to the center of Our Lady's statue, just above Our Lady's statue, and behind the trees.

Jesus--"My child, you will continue in patience and fortitude. The plan from Heaven will be consummated.

"All who have given themselves to satan shall rush headlong, head first into the abyss. No man shall fall into the abyss except of his own free will.

"Before the cleansing, the chastisement of mankind, each individual soul will have passed through this crucible of testing and suffering. All will be well for those of good spirit.

"My Mother does not come as an emissary to instill fear in your heart with Her message. My Mother has come with prophecy to enlighten you of the days ahead, for the Father will chastise those He loves. It is in this manner--the manner of your God, that cannot meet with comprehension even by a generation that has become arrogant and considers itself above the Father Eternal in knowledge. They shall not comprehend the way of their God.

"You will all retire from your world of satan. Satan knows his day grows short. He will do full battle against the children of God.

"Accept now your cross. Carry it with perseverance. But remain in the light, for it is the only way to the Kingdom."

Veronica--Jesus is placing His hand out: In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.

GROUNDS IN ABEYANCE UNTIL SIGN TO BISHOP

Jesus--"Continue now, My children, with your prayers of atonement. You are not displaced from the sacred grounds. They are held in abeyance until the Father, the Eternal Father, gives the word to your bishop."

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.
