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

"You must come to My Son by the tabernacles of the world. Join with Him; pray with Him; do penance for your brothers and sisters. Much atonement is needed."

July 15, 1976

In honor of Our Lady of Mount Carmel

Veronica--There are two long rays of blue light coming from opposite sides of the sky and meeting just over Our Lady's statue. One ray is now opening up and forming a narrow--what looks to be, appears to be a road, a very narrow road. And over on our left side--the right side has the narrow road, and on our left side, just over the trees, beaming down from Heaven, there are two streams of light forming a wide road. But the wide road is going downward and seems to be going down into the grounds beyond the trees. The narrow road ends over Our Lady's statue head.

There are blue dots of light appearing all over the sky. It's just beautiful. The sky is beginning to lighten, to grow very bright, and I can see now the slivers, tiny minute particles of glistening, crystalline graces Our Lady speaks of many times, the graces that will be evident to the human eye.

Now over on our right side there is a sheath of light coming forward. Our Lady is coming down now; She's floating as though She was on a staircase. She is coming down on this narrow road, and behind Her is Saint Michael, covering most of the sky. His hair, his head is so large that it reaches past the flag of our country.

Our Lady now is floating over. She doesn't walk, She's carried by the wind, over to our left side. It would be the right side of the sky for Our Lady.

Our Lady is holding in Her right hand a very large Scapular. It's a piece of brown cloth. There are no figures upon it, but it's very neatly stitched. It's a huge replica of the brown Scapular. And in Her left hand Our Lady is carrying the Rosary. It's a beautiful white Rosary with the golden Our Father and a gleaming crucifix. The crucifix is so brilliant that, as Our Lady turns, the light upon the crucifix is very dazzling to the eyes. Our Lady now is kissing the brown cloth and placing it about Her neck. The panel of brown cloth hangs forward upon Our Lady's tunic, Her mantle.

Our Lady is dressed in a very deep blue mantle and a white, a gleaming white gown with a sash of--it's not blue; it's like an off-beige color. Our Lady is now placing Her Rosary and twining it upon the cording around Her waist. The crucifix is hanging far down onto the leg section of Our Lady's gown.

Our Lady is touching Her lips with Her first finger, and that means to listen well.

Our Lady--"My child, you must understand that it is not often that I send you upon a distant mission. However, in our desperate times you must be ready to follow My direction without notice in advance.

"It is sad, My child, that there are so many delusions and errors prevalent upon earth. The souls fall into deep darkness, as they are misguided by Our clergy and those who have cast aside the light to run fast headlong into the darkness.

ST. FRANCIS OF ASSISI

"My child, it has soothed Our hearts, for you have defended Our beloved son, Francis, Saint Francis of Assisi.

"Yes, My child, even the blessed ones are attacked upon earth by satan, for they know that these blessed have joined in the fight ahead against the forces of 666, the man of perdition now loosed upon your earth. The battle continues; the evil has accelerated.

"I will instruct you, My child, for the knowledge of all mankind. The word 'nakedness' and 'naked' has been misconstrued, and has been taken out of context from the good Book, the Bible. Watch, My child, as I will enfold, unfold the story for you."

Veronica--The sky is beginning to open up on the right side. I see a very quiet body of water, a sea. And there is in the water a boat; it is a wooden structure, very crudely made. It is lying listlessly in the water. And now, as Our Lady brings me forward, I can see men--one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine--nine men are standing in the boat, and they are pulling upon a net that's stretched over the side of the boat.

Three of the men have tunics tied about their waists, but off their shoulders. The men have been fishing, but they have not filled their nets, Our Lady says. The men have been fishing, but they have not filled their nets.

NAKEDNESS NOT TO BE PRACTICED

Our Lady--"You will observe, My child, that none of these men are naked, for the word 'naked' can be misconstrued, when what is meant is stripped or uncovered, but not wholly. Nakedness is not to be practiced before another human. Adam and Eve, your first parents, when they found themselves naked, they covered themselves with the leaves. Therefore, watch, My child, and record the truth."

Veronica--I see over on the left side of the boat a man, a tall man. He has a beard and long brown hair. Now as I watch he is tying the cord belting tighter about his waist. He has on a tunic, a long tunic, but underneath I can see the upper part of an undercovering.

Our Lady--"My child, it is called a loin cloth."

Veronica--A loincloth. And the tunic being worn by the man is now being taken off from his shoulders as he tightens the belting, so that it lies suspended about his waist.

The waters are warm, the air is heavy, and they continue to labor, the men, to bring up the fish. They are becoming discouraged, and they are looking about them. Another man who is dressed in a long tunic that is belted, girded very tightly about his waist, approaches the first man standing to the left. I can hear his voice. He is saying: "Simon Peter, look! There is the Master on the shore."

Simon Peter--it is the man on the left, and he turns and looks the short distance that lies to the shore. Excitedly, he brings up his tunic, the top covering, and places his arms in the sleeves and brings the tunic closer about his chest as he ties the rope closer.

Our Lady--"Never did Peter stand, My child, naked as man will call nakedness. The word 'naked' can be taken out of context, I repeat. Peter found the work heavy and hot. He removed only the top of his tunic by girding it tightly about his waist as he worked, as he labored with difficulty with the heavy nets to bring up the fish."

Veronica--Now the man who had approached Peter is pointing to the shore. And now Peter is growing very excited, and the other men are starting to pull at the nets. They have grown very heavy, and I can see now fish jumping up. Oh, my goodness! The nets are filled with fish jumping up and down. Oh! And the man on the right side talking to Peter, says: "The Master has filled the nets."

Now Peter is going over to the front part of the boat and he's leaping in, feet first into the water. It's not very deep. They're not far from shore, and he's now trying to swim, and wading to the shore. And over on the shore is Jesus; I can see Jesus. He's standing there in His long white tunic, His robe on His arm.

It's very warm. It's early morning, around ten or eleven o'clock, Our Lady said. Ten or eleven o'clock, but it's very warm and humid.

And now I can see Peter rushing up onto the beach; it looks like a beach. And the sand, though, is not a white; it's sort of a reddish, muddy-colored looking. And he's now throwing himself at Jesus' feet.

Now they are preparing wood, and there's a fire in it. It had been prepared previously, because it's burning quite well. And Jesus is saying: "Come, let us eat."

And now the men out in the boat are all quite excited, and they're coming in and trying to pull the heavy nets overflowing with fish behind them. They are all talking excitedly of the power of Jesus to fill these nets after they had labored most of the night without success.

Now it's growing very dark, and Our Lady is moving closer, just above the flag, the American flag.

Our Lady--"My child, you understand now why I allowed you to carry the cross.

"Saint Francis, your patron, he did not appear naked before his bishop. It is an expression, a symbol of divesting yourself of all your worldly desires and goods. He wished to live a life of poverty and piety, loving all creatures of God, for they reflected the joy and the dignity of his Master, the Lord high God in Heaven.

"My child, much penance, much atonement is needed for the abominations being committed from the hearts of men. My Son's House, His Church, is under constant attack by the forces of 666. These demons set loose in these end times, My children, will enter into the body of any man, woman, or child who has fallen out of grace.

"My children, do not fall for the error--do not fall into error: you must pray for the light before you read the Scriptures. Many have set themselves to change, renovate, and place deceit in the lines written by the prophets.

"My child, do not be concerned of expressing your true feelings. If you cannot accept the penance, will you be able to accept a heavier cross, My child?

"When I send you upon a mission, My child, do not be concerned of the outcome. You have accomplished what I set you out to do.

NO INSTANT PRIESTS

"Man must be cautious in the manner in which he is trying to set My Son's Church to right. There are many who are rushing headlong into error and confusion. The priesthood will be step by step, lesson by lesson. We cannot, My children, have instant priests at this time. You ask why, My child, and I must give you the facts.

"My Son taught His priests, His disciples, the Apostles, in the time He was upon earth. He infused in them accumulations of knowledge that was supernatural in manner. In your human mind and your human limitations, My child, you will not be able to fully understand the ways of the Father. The twelve disciples, Apostles, set down the rule as they were taught, in truth, facts, and solid foundation.

"Man through the ages became dissatisfied and filled with pride. He sought to bring in, to enter upon the Bible his own interpretation of the wordings. To the simple of heart, those who do not succumb to pride and arrogance, the wordings are quite clear.

EXTENSIVE STUDY REQUIRED

"A true priest is a man who has been legally ordained; a true priest is a man who will need extensive study to prepare him to be able to understand and teach the truth. The first Apostles were given this knowledge by Jesus; the descendants of Peter are given this knowledge by the Holy Ghost.

"It is only when these descendants of the priesthood do not pray and have entered themselves into the world of humanism and modernism that they no longer bring the light to the sheep. They scatter the sheep in all directions, sowing confusion, abominations, fallacies, and lies. And you ask, as did Pilate: And what is truth? My Son is truth, in God the Father and the Spirit. My Son is the light of the world. If you make instant priests, what good is it without the salt?

"My children, there is much to correct in the procedures that man has chosen to right the wrong. Pray a constant vigilance of prayer that satan does not enter upon the good works.

"My children, you must continue to wear your sacramentals. You must come to My Son by the tabernacles of the world. Join with Him; pray with Him; do penance for your brothers and sisters. Much atonement is needed. There will be much gnashing of teeth and woe set upon the world by the evil one.

"My child, you will not speculate with dates. I assure you, all the knowledge the Eternal Father wishes to give to you will appear before your very eyes. Be patient and long-suffering, My child.

"The Message from Heaven is reaching to all corners of the world, the earth. I bless Our children, your neighbors, your brothers of the north who wear the white berets. I bless those in your country, My child, the United States, who wear the white berets and the blue berets.

"I understand, My child, there is confusion. The blue berets will be worn only by the ladies who are in the circle of light. They are signatures and signify the placement within the circle of light. This message of the blue berets was a personal one, My child, and not to be adopted universally. I repeat: all will wear the white berets, all but the ladies of the inner circle.

"Continue, My children, with your prayers of atonement. Pray for your bishops; pray for your Holy Father, Our blessed son who now is carrying his cross. Do not be astounded at the turn of events that will soon come upon you.

LIKE A GAME OF CHESS

"As I directed you before, there is an impostor; there is one who is a double for your Holy Father. The game of the reds and the blues are played like chess, My child. You must watch well.

"There will be a gathering in your city of Philadelphia, My child. Pray that out of the confusion that will reign, that much good could develop.

"The Eternal Father watches with great anxiety, My child. Keep a constant vigilance of prayer for your bishops. Do not be concerned of public opinion, and do not waste your energies and your precious time in trying to combat adverse opinion. Go forward, carrying your banner of Faithful and True."

Veronica--Our Lady now is extending Her Rosary. She's taking it from about Her waist, and She's holding it out, like this, with the crucifix hanging there. It's quite heavy. Oh, it's beautiful, though--a golden hue, a color that's just so brilliant it almost hurts your eyes to try to look into the center of the light. Our Lady is extending now Her Rosary 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.

Our Lady is now going over to our left side, just a little above the tree, and extending Her hand out: In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.

Michael now has joined Our Lady, and they're going over to our right side. They're traveling quite fast on the wind; they're just gliding. Our Lady now is bending over, and She's extending Her Rosary 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.

Our Lady--"I bless you all, My children, as the Eternal Father blesses you in the Spirit, and send among you graces, graces for cures and conversion--cures of the body and cures of the soul."

Veronica--Now Our Lady is going backwards into the sky. Saint Michael--he's over on Her right side now; he's cut across, and he's standing at Our Lady's right side. He has the balance in his right hand, the golden balance, and a spear that he's holding up now in his left hand. I can't see Michael's face. I don't think I have ever seen Michael's face--the light is so bright. The color is reflecting, the brilliant lighting is reflecting on his hair, and it lights up all of the sky about Our Lady over to the left side of the tree.

Our Lady--"Be seated, My child, and await My Son."

[Pause]

Veronica--The sky is becoming a deep, smoky red. It's a warm color, a fiery red. Now over on the right side, to the right of Our Lady's statue, high over the banners, there's a sheath, a streak of white light now coming through the sky. And directly above it, Michael is coming forward and stepping over--he's not stepping; he's gliding over to our left side, his right side.

Now through the light--the light now is branching out, and there are streams of light coming from the center. That makes one, two, three beams of light coming directly down.

Oh, and high above the beam, directly over Our Lady's head, is Jesus. Oh, it's quite windy; His hair is blowing. He has no shoes on His feet, not even sandals; they're bare. And His hands now are extended. He has His hands extended in front of Him, and that's where the rays are coming from--both hands. There's a ray coming out from each hand. It's very beautiful. Now the ray in the center is extending upward and going directly to His chest. Oh, beautiful!

Now Jesus is coming down, followed by Michael. And Our Lady now is appearing in the light. She's coming down just behind Jesus, and Michael is on the right side now. Our Lady is stepping--She's gliding between Jesus--She's on Jesus' right side, and Michael is next to Her.

Now Jesus is taking His garment away from His chest, and there's a huge pink--oh, almost a deep pink-colored heart emblazoned on His, the front of His tunic. Jesus is placing His hand in front of Him, like this, and touching now His lips, which means to listen and repeat.

Jesus--"My child, for those who have been given an abundance of graces, much is expected of them. You will be given no more a burden than you can carry.

"There is now in the city of Rome a conspiracy of evil to remove your Vicar from the Seat of Peter. The forces, the red forces are gathering. Pray a constant vigilance of prayer. When the upheaval in Rome takes place, My children, know that the end of your era is at hand.

BRINK OF DISASTER

"Your country, the United States, is standing now, has placed itself upon a brink, a road to disaster. Much will depend upon your free will of exercising the power to place in your government men of God or men of dark secrets. Pray for your government and your leaders; pray that you choose wisely, for your country will be in chaos.

"My children, My Mother has cautioned you of the days ahead. I do not have to enlarge upon Her direction. Keep a constant vigilance of prayer throughout your country and the world. You must be persevering and diligent. There are many armies of satan now throughout your world. The Eternal Father plans the strategy to combat this evil. However, man holds his destiny by his actions.

"The Ball of Redemption, the direction for the Chastisement, is with the Eternal Father. Be prepared at all times for the approaching Warning. All who are of well spirit will have nothing to fear. They will go through these times with great fortitude in the knowledge that the eventual victory is with Heaven.

"All parents hold the measure of responsibility for the salvation of their children's souls. Do not expect others to save your children. You must retain the Faith in their hearts through your homes and your family unity. Satan has sown discord within the family circles. It will be a struggle in the days ahead to keep your children from falling into the web of evil that is slowly ensnaring the world. Satan is weaving his web of evil like the black widow.

"The forces of 666 are spreading their evil throughout your world. Do not be deluded; do not set yourself in speculation, for you have been given the meaning of 666 in the past: six is for the six who are coming, and have come; six is for the six days of great suffering; and six is for the six who will be punished.

JACINTA PHOTOGRAPH

"The photograph miraculous, given to the world through Jacinta, the child seer, has been discarded and forgotten. It was, it is still a mystery to mankind. But the secret has been given to the simple of heart. Those of great knowledge, who hold the highest places upon earth, have lost sight of the road, the road to their redemption. It is only in the hearts of those who remain simple and pure of thought and deed that these miracles of photographs, of cures of spirit, of cures of body, will be given.

"It is sad, My children, that We have to look upon a world that has become much darker, more corrupted and defiled than in the time of Noe or Sodom. Awaken now from your slumber, My pastors. There is not much time left to gather My sheep. And shall you stand before Me and say that your teaching of My sheep has been pure in My sight? No! I say unto you: many of you have fallen asleep.

"Do not be deluded by those who say: Where is His coming? Has He fallen asleep? For I assure you, as day will come out of night, as light shall emerge from the darkness, I will return."

Veronica--Now Jesus is going over, directly above our flag, the American flag, and He's pointing downward to the flag.

Jesus--"Look, My children, upon a nation, America the beautiful, that has given itself to satan. Look upon a nation that has conspired with the enemy, the enemies of God. Look upon a nation guided by My Mother for years of plentitude on earth, and look upon a nation that shall be chastised through suffering.

"The Message from Heaven shall go throughout your world, and then shall come the end. There will be a baptism of fire set upon mankind. How soon, My children? It all depends upon you and your actions. Prayer must be joined with action, works, good deeds of atonement.

"Those in Rome who have been given a high place to guide the souls of mankind must now clean with inventory. Their works have been found wanting; their direction has been found wanting; and none shall escape the wrath of an angry God.

PASTOR TO FLEE IN TERROR

"Unless you pray more for your bishops, there will be chaos in Rome: bishop against bishop, cardinal against cardinal, while satan stands in the midst of them. Blood shall flow in the streets of Rome. Your Pastor, the leader of your sheep, shall flee in terror.

"I say now, My children, I long to bring words of cheer and joy to you, but know that if the scale is not balanced soon, this joy shall be with the ultimate victory."

Veronica--Now Jesus is extending His hand out, like this, with the three fingers in front of Him, and making the sign of the cross: In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.

It's very windy. Now Jesus is floating; He's just gliding on the wind across the sky over to our right side, directly above the second tree. And He's looking down now and placing His hand out, like this: In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.

Jesus is now going over to our left side. He's joining Our Lady and Saint Michael, who have been standing there motionless. Our Lady does not look very happy; She has a very sad expression upon Her face. And now Jesus is going ahead of them and moving over high above the tree. And He's standing now, bending over now, and placing His hand in front of Him: In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.

Jesus--"I bless you all, My children, as the Father blesses you, and We send among you the Spirit of light. Continue with your prayers of atonement. Go forward and send the message throughout the world. Shout it from the rooftops, for the time is growing short."

Veronica--Now Jesus is rising very, very high into the sky. The light that's coming out from all about Him now is closing in, and He's going directly beyond the light; it's as though the sky has opened up and closed again.

Our Lady is standing over with Saint Michael, just directly above the Michael banner, and She's touching now Her lips.

Our Lady--"My child, continue with your prayers of atonement. I will be with you through the days ahead."

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

 

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.
