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

"It shall be bishop against bishop and cardinal against cardinal, for . . . 666, the forces and agents of satan, have entered upon Rome!"

July 24, 1976

Eve of Saint Anne and Saint Joachim

Veronica--The sky this evening is covered with a haze, a dark haze, bordering on a smoky gray. Now the wind is carrying this haze over to our right side, and the sky is becoming much brighter with tinges of blue all about the trees and also a hazy formation of pink, a color that is difficult to describe. It's not a bright pink--a dull shade of pink. However, it's different in comparison to the brightness of the pink that is present when Jesus arrives.

Now I see some stars that are falling from the Heavens. And there's appearing a very brilliant ball of light directly over Our Lady's statue. The light is growing much brighter and wider in circumference. Our Lady now is stepping from out of the center of this circle of light that appears almost host-like in shape.

Our Lady--"My child, I am fully aware of your disquiet of spirit. I have cautioned you in the past to remain in seclusion from the world. If you find yourself falling into the error, My child, know that it is satan who seeks to confuse you. You must bar your doors to all but your immediate workers and your family."

Veronica--Our Lady now is pointing upward with Her right hand, far over to the trees on our right side, and there are two figures now coming down from the sky. There's a lady. She's dressed in a very flowing gown. It's not white, it's like an off-gray. It's a very full-skirted gown, and she has upon her head a headcovering that is pointed, with--oh, a very sheer material that comes out from the points. It's almost cone-shaped in appearance, the headdress of the lady. And behind her there is an elderly gentleman coming forward. He is now touching her shoulder. She's stepping over to her left side; she is on the right side of him.

Our Lady--"My child, it is My father and My mother of the earth, Joachim and Anne."

Veronica--Now they are coming over. I can see the man very well. He's not an elderly man. I would say he appears to be in his forties. And Saint Anne, she also appears very young. I would say in her--oh, in my judgment, my human judgment, she appears to be in her perhaps early thirties.

Our Lady now is standing next to Saint Anne, and Our Lady looks very petite and young, almost like a--well, a twelve or thirteen-year-old girl now.

DISINTEGRATION OF THE FAMILY

Our Lady--"My child, you are observing the foundation for all life and dedication to the Eternal Father--the home and the family. In your world today that has been caught in the snare of the wiles of satan, many families are heading to oblivion, disintegration, and destruction. The forces of evil, the agents of 666, have now infiltrated into the very heart of mankind: the home, the family.

"O My children, if you could only recover the peace and quiet of spirit that was once much evident in your homes and now has been replaced by all manner of creations of satan, creations that distract the minds of the innocent, creations that have taken the knowledge of their God from the children, while fathers and mothers are lost as they run to and fro gathering all the material wealth upon earth, seeking pleasures that are soul destroyers, and setting an example that can be and lead to an abomination within the family circle.

"The parents, the mother and the father, My children, must set a firm example to their children. When these children leave the family's home, they are subjected to all trials of error, deception, delusion, and lies.

"The parents of many have fallen into the error of feeding the body and starving the young souls. These souls, in the eyes of the Eternal Father, are young flowers that must be nourished with pure waters of truth, purpose, dedication to the road--place them on the road that will lead to the eternal Kingdom of God your Father in Heaven.

"But where are your children? They are fast approaching their destruction. Many of your children have gone now beyond the point of no return. Many parents must accept a penance, a severe penance, for the recovery of their children's souls.

"O My children, I could repeat and repeat My many warnings to your world of the approaching Ball of Redemption, the Chastisement of your God. I can repeat to you now the approach of the Warning. How many have listened to My cautioning and direction of your young souls, and how many have acted upon this direction?

"O My children, if I could, as a loving Mother, bring to you a word of good cheer! And what hope can I, as your Mother, bring to you, but your confidence shall be My Son, Jesus, your God.

"Scientists within your world are ever seeking but never finding the truth.

"My child, do not be concerned of the opinion of man. It is a human weakness of pride that all who follow the road to the eternal Kingdom must be divested of. Do not be affrighted, My child. I give you this with a loving Mother's direction.

666 ENTERED UPON ROME

"The Eternal City of Rome shall go through labor pains. The struggle shall lead to blood within the streets. There shall be a war among your clergy. It shall be bishop against bishop and cardinal against cardinal, for 666 has entered upon Rome. I repeat, My children: awaken from your slumber! 666, the forces and agents of satan, have entered upon Rome!

"Your father, your Holy Father, Pope Paul, is a prisoner in his own House, his Church. Recognize the signs about you; do not be deluded by the mockers who cast aside My direction. You must all pray a constant vigilance of prayer for your Vicar. The agents of 666 have already chosen his successor, My children.

"Do not be concerned of your body discomfort in the days ahead, all who seek to bring the message to mankind, the Message from Heaven. Sacrifice, My children; do penance for your brothers and sisters. Without your grace, your application of abundance of graces to them, many will be lost. Many will die in the great flame of the Ball of Redemption.

"Clergy, followers of My Son, you who have sought a vocation and were graced to be chosen from among mankind, will you not gather Our straying sheep? Will you not gather My lilies from the field and give them the waters of life for Us?"

Veronica--Now I see a great field. There's a darkness hanging over this field, and there are many, many crosses stretching as far as the eye can see.

CONCEALING THE TRUTH

Our Lady--"My child, you are witnessing the many who shall die in the great War. Already the forces are working to the consummation of this great World War, My child. Do not be deceived by the editorials, by your newspapers that have now been controlled by these forces, for you will only be given the knowledge of what they want you to know. It is often concealing the truth.

"It is only when you stay within Our circle of light, My children, that you will understand your times, you will understand the meaning of the signs given to you. Once you cast yourself from inside, outside of the circle of light, you will find, My children, it is very difficult to return. Graces are given in abundance, and much is expected of those who have received these graces.

"You will pray for the hierarchy in Rome, My children and My child. The penance that they will be given for their errors and deception will bring a great sorrow to those who can extend pity and charity to those who have fallen. Pray a constant vigilance of prayer, My children. Your country, America the beautiful, will experience a great trial. Pray that your new leaders will be men of God with great insight and purpose for following the rule, My children."

Veronica--Now Our Lady is taking Her Rosary, Her beautiful large white Rosary with the golden Our Fathers, from about Her waist, and She's placing it in front of Her, like this, with the crucifix extended. The crucifix is a beautiful golden color. And as Our Lady is turning now, She's smiling very sadly. But the crucifix is gleaming, it's glistening. It's a beautiful gold. And Our Lady now is placing it 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 Our Lady is moving over--She's not walking, She glides, She's just carried on the wind--and extending Her hand out, like this: In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.

Now from behind Our Lady, Saint Joachim and Anne are coming forward. She's standing now, Saint Anne, next to Our Lady. She's just a slight bit taller in the manner in which they're standing. And also Saint Joachim is behind her.

And Michael now is coming down from the sky. He has emerged through the sky in a tremendous form. Michael is very, very large; he covers the whole span of the sky in front of us, a beautiful figure of a warrior from Heaven.

And now Our Lady is going over to our right side, and She's bending over with Her crucifix from Her Rosary: In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.

Our Lady--"I bless you all, My children, as My mother and father bless you and accept all of the prayers that have come to them this evening."

Veronica--And Our Lady is pointing up to the sky now with Her crucifix, and there's a tremendous white crucifix--it's very supernatural-looking, in the sky, right over by the trees. It's all aglow with light; it's an absolute panorama of colors. There's no way to explain it; it's a brilliant white cross right in the sky. Now Our Lady is touching Her lips with Her finger.

Our Lady--"My child, you will be seated now. I have much to explain to you in photos."

[Pause]

Veronica--The sky about the trees is becoming a very pink color. And just over Our Lady's statue, a little to the left, there's a very luminous glow of light coming out through the dark sky. And right in the center of it now Jesus is standing. He's stopped. He was coming forward, but He's stopped now and He's looking around. He has on a white, an off-white, a beige-colored gown with a heavy belting or cord about His waist. And His robe is a deep burgundy color.

It's quite windy up there, because Jesus now is having difficulty with the blowing of His cape. And He's placing it now, winding it, the cape, about His right arm and coming forward.

The light shines directly, is shining directly onto Jesus' hair. His hair has a deep reddish brown coloring. And the light is so very brilliant about His head, I cannot see Jesus' face that clearly. Now He is also raising His first finger to His lips, which means to listen.

Jesus--"My child, the world is facing a desperate struggle, a struggle to retain the Faith, a struggle to stay out of the clutches of the enemies of your God. Prayer in a constant vigilance must be kept in the days ahead.

"The agents of hell, the forces of 666, have entered upon the holy city of Rome. In the past years of earth's time My Mother has warned again and again of these coming days that are now in your present.

"I do not have to repeat the full Message from Heaven given to you countless times in many places throughout your world by My Mother. She has come to you as a Mediatrix between God and man; She has come to you as your Mother to direct you, to bring you through the world of darkness, a darkness that already has claimed for satan the souls of many.

CRUCIBLE OF SUFFERING

"I cannot promise you at this time a major change in your present struggle to retain My Church. You must all approach the days ahead with the knowledge that it is deemed by the Eternal Father that all mankind shall be tested and tried in a crucible of suffering. The sheep shall be separated from the goats, and We shall pull from the chaff the good kernels, those who will retain and restore My Church.

"I give due warning to all cardinals and bishops who guide the souls and have scattered the sheep that you have been examined by your Eternal Father and found wanting. The day is fast approaching when many of you who wear the high hats of rank shall stand before Me and give account of your gathering or scattering of My sheep. Shall you stand before Me and say that your teaching has been pure in My sight?

"It is sad, My children, that those who have been given the rank to guide the lives of millions have used that very power to destroy. Man is gathering now all manner of destructive missiles. And material values have deteriorated to a plane that is despicable in its seeking for wealth and power by destroying the human being and his soul.

"How many of you have even listened with small measure to the directions of My Mother? How many of you share the responsibility for turning away from Her and even to destroy Her in the minds and hearts of your countrymen? All evil will eventually be turned to good. The forces of evil, in the almighty knowledge of the Eternal Father, are given their time for the separation of the sheep from the goats.

NOT A FULL DESTRUCTION

"There will be upon your world a major War of such proportions that no human has ever experienced the terror nor the destruction of these forces. War is a punishment for man's sins. All of the direction given in warning is conditional to mankind. There shall not be a full destruction set upon the world again, but I assure you, My children, when you go through this crucible only a few shall be saved.

"The road to the eternal Kingdom of God your Father is a narrow road, one that can only be followed with penance, one that asks you: 'Come, follow My road.' But it will be a road filled with thorns and heavy crosses.

"If it were not otherwise, I could give you a picture of ease. But all I can offer you, as your God, is facts in truth and hope. Your hope at this moment is in receiving the Message from Heaven and acting upon it."

Veronica--Now Jesus is rising very high up into the sky. He's not walking; He seems to be just absolutely carried weightless high up over and just beyond the right side of Our Lady's statue. And Our Lady now is coming over from our left side, and Joachim and Anne are now following Her. And Michael is coming down just behind Jesus. He's carrying the golden scale, the balance, and a very long sword which is pointing downward.

Now Our Lady is looking over towards Jesus. And Jesus now is shifting the weight of His cloak onto His left arm, and He's 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.

Jesus is now floating over; He's gliding over to our right side, just directly above the second tree and placing His hand out, like this: In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.

Now there's a great brilliant light above Michael. It's opening up the whole sky about Our Lady and Jesus and Saint Anne and Joachim. They're all now going individually across the sky and pausing just over the Michael banner. And Jesus is extending His hand out, like this: 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 sends among you the Spirit of light. Continue now with your prayers of atonement, which are sorely needed."

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.
