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

"Pray for your new Pope. . . . He must not allow communism to control Rome. . . . Russia has great plans for the capture of Rome."

November 20, 1978

Eve of the Presentation of the Blessed Virgin Mary

Veronica--Now please, everyone quite, Our Lady says. Quiet. My voice isn't very loud, Our Lady says, so we must be quiet. A very, very urgent Message.

The sky directly above Our Lady's statue is opening up. If you notice, Our Lady says, you'll see the whole area of blue, with indications of the heavenly stars.

As the sky now is being separated from the clouds, Our Lady is coming forward. The light is very, very brilliant. Oh, She looks absolutely exquisite! Our Lady looks very young this evening, very young. She has on a long white gown, and Her mantle is a brilliant white, the color of sugar. I have never found an earthly representative for the brightness of Our Lady's mantle. It's not earthly; it's supernatural, the brightness. All about Our Lady's mantle there's a trim of gold, a brilliant gold.

Now Our Lady has--oh, Our Lady has on a magnificent crown this evening. I've seen it; I know it's called the Fatima crown, the very large crown. Oh, Our Lady is smiling. She's standing with Her hands joined together, like this. Her beads, the beautiful Rosary with the golden Our Fathers and the white Hail Marys, are dangling from between Her fingers down the front part of Her gown.

Our Lady is looking all about. She's smiling, but She's quite sad. Now Our Lady is taking Her hands and raising Her finger, indicating to me to listen, as She touches Her finger to Her lips.

HOUR OF DARKNESS, SADNESS APPROACHES

Our Lady--"My child and My children, My heart is very sad that I must bring you this urgent but final Message from Heaven. The Eternal Father has sent Me as a Mediatrix from God to man all about your world, the earth, crying out warnings from Heaven to mankind, warnings that only a few have heeded. And now the hour is approaching, the hour of darkness and sadness. Many parents shall have tears of anguish brought into their homes by the coming events.

MANY CATASTROPHES BEFORE WARNING

"My children, please, as your Mother I ask you in all charity to go forward and warn your brothers and sisters to prepare for great persecution. There will be many catastrophes now befalling your earth until the great Warning, and then the final Chastisement. O My children, will you not listen to Me?

"The Eternal Father has sent many seers to you to bring you these warnings. And also upon earth, in competition to truth, there have been sent by Lucifer many false prophets and prophetesses. My children, you will recognize these false prophets, as they will preach a doctrine of man, neither recognizing the way of the cross or the power of the redemption from the Eternal Father.

"My children, you must guard your families. Watch your children. Because of the laxity of many of the men of God in My Son's Church, because of their laxity, because they have given themselves into all manners of sin, sins of the flesh, Our sheep have been left to stray, and the wolves have approached them. And many have already been lost to Us, lured away by promises of peace and joy and eternal happiness. There shall be no peace; there shall be no joy without the cross.

"Many false prophets now are in your country, the United States, and many countries throughout the world. They make a concerted attack upon the young because the parents have become lax, because the teachers have become corrupted, because the governments have become corrupted.

LUCIFER PLANS TO DESTROY PAPACY

"And majorly, the biggest fault of all to mankind, because man has turned now from his Creator--I must now make known to you, My children. As I told you in the past, Lucifer has been released from hell with many other demons in his legion of demons now loosed upon earth. Lucifer is in Rome and plans to destroy the papacy. My children, pray for your new Pope. He must be given the strength even unto the point of martyrdom, if necessary. He must not allow communism to control Rome.

MARTYRDOM MEANS IMMEDIATE ENTRANCE TO HEAVEN

"My children, are there so few who will suffer for the faith? Are My children lost to the need for suffering and martyrdom for the Faith? Do you not understand, My children, that martyrdom means immediate entrance into Heaven. Is this not worth fighting for?

"No--O men of the cloth, whatever has happened to you in your profession? You prefer the worldly life of riches and power. You partake of sins of the flesh. You mislead by teaching doctrines of demons. You do not exercise discipline among your own. Better that you have a few with quality than a quantity of nothingness! You will not build in Rome nor in the world a church of man given over to humanism and modernism.

"My children, I have told you in the past the meaning, the true meaning of 666, the meaning that has been lost through countless years of earth times by interpretations in the minds of men and written into numerous Bibles. However, 666 is Lucifer, with five powerful demons plus Lucifer is six; and the six days of terrible suffering from the Chastisement; and the six that will be punished--Lucifer and his hordes, his ogres, for their terrible atrocities upon mankind. Lucifer will go wherever darkness is.

"MAN OF PERDITION" A GENERAL TERM

"My children, listen to Me now as I explain to you. Your men, your theologians have lost one truth. It is not one man, as they refer scripturally, 'the man of perdition,' a man whose number will be known as 666. It is a general term. It refers to Lucifer in the body of a man.

"And listen well, My children, as I repeat to you this truth. Quoting from the scriptures, that 'He will sit in the temple of God and proclaim himself as God.' Antichrist will sit in the temple of God and proclaim himself as God.

"Now, My children, think and follow along with Me as I explain to you this. When you are baptized and become a member of the House of God upon earth, My Son's Church, and as a child of God, your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit. Therefore, this passage in the Bible does not mean a structural, brick and stone and mortar temple, but the body of a man. You must keep your body free of contamination, for it is the abode, the housing of the sacred species of the Host, My Son's Body, and also for reception in purity of the Holy Ghost within you.

LUCIFER, DEVIL INCARNATE, IS 666

"Now you will understand, My children, why man has lost through the ages the true meaning of 666. It is not one man, as your world's theologians go about watching for one man. It is Lucifer--Lucifer, the devil incarnate, who is 666! My children, you learn nothing, though you have produced in the past many pages of scripture, many pages of prophecy. But you do not believe what you read.

"As it has been told in the past, the time has come now for man to either make a quick--I say 'quick,' My children, for the months now are being counted and the years are counted in the few--I say, My children, to make a change quickly and avoid the Warning, avoid the Chastisement. And this can only be done when Lucifer is sent back into hell. And mankind will do it, though the Eternal Father, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit watch. It will be now given over to mankind to bring this about.

RETURN TO TRADITION OR YOU WILL FALL

"My children, pastors in My Son's Church upon earth, I implore you, I beg of you as your Mother, to return My Son's House, to return Our children to the fold! But not in the manner you seek to do it now: not by humanism or modernism. Return now to Tradition or you will fall! Rome will fall! You will give yourselves over to the enemy.

"Russia has great plans for the capture of Rome. I beg unto you as your Mother to listen now while there is time. Bishops, cardinals in Rome, a plan is set afoot against you. Many have entered from the socialist--the Union of Socialist Republic, Russia, have entered the Church to destroy you! Recognize the path you are following. It is a well-made path. Avoid it!

"America, the United States, you, too, have become walking with your eyes blinded to the truth. You seek peace and happiness, but the more you cry 'peace,' the more in your foolishness you give yourself to being saviors of the world--the enemy is seeking your downfall.

"O My children of the United States, do you not understand what is ahead for you? Your country, the United States, has not known what it is to suffer through destructive forces. My children, you shall not escape the destruction that the Bear of communism has set upon many countries in Europe and the world. You cannot compromise your Faith to save what there is left, for everything upon earth shall fall as rubble with the Chastisement. A ball of fire, a chastisement, a baptism of fire is heading for mankind. Can you not understand?

"Divest yourself, pastors in Rome, of your pride. Turn back and start anew. There is only a little time left.

"O My children--"

SICKLE WITH THE HAMMER

Veronica--Our Lady is pointing now up. She's pointing over now to Her left side, our right. And forming in the sky is the horrible emblem, the sickle with the hammer. And blazing all about it is a red, circular pattern of ugly, fiery-looking red about the hammer and the sickle.

And now an arrow is pointing over to the other side of the sky, far on the right. And the arrow is swinging now and heading across the sky like a comet, far to the left. And on the left a number is forming, a huge "6". And the "6" now sets like an angry arrow, like a shot onto the head, the crown of Peter.

I see--I see, I--oh, it's terrible! I see the crown of Peter melting, melting, melting! And I see on the right side a man laughing with glee as he melts all the treasures of the papacy.

Now it's growing very, very dark. Our Lady has moved over now, and She's pointing again. And written in the sky is C-O-M--it's being written like a finger's writing it--C-O-M-M-U-N-I-S-M: "COMMUNISM"; T-H-E: "THE"; S-C-O-U-R-G-E: "SCOURGE"; O-F: "OF"; M-A-N-K-I-N-D. "COMMUNISM, THE SCOURGE OF MANKIND."

Now the letters are blowing away like smoke, and Our Lady now is moving over until She's directly over us now. She's come back from the--She's moving from the center until She's directly over us now. And She's placing Her hands out, like this, and there are tremendous rays of light radiating from Her fingers down all about the peoples without the circle. The rays are now heading over into the crowds of people in the rear. Our Lady is sending these graces to strengthen many who will receive great persecution for the Faith.

Now the lights are beginning to, just seem to be going back into Our Lady's fingers. I can't explain it. It's magnificent to see the lights. It's as though Our Lady is a tremendous person of light. I can't explain it. It's so beautiful!

Our Lady is standing there now. She looks very sad. It's a little windy. Her skirt is blowing, and She's looking now over to the right and left at the peoples. And now She is putting Her hand out, like this, and She's throwing what appear to be roses! Yes, Our Lady is throwing very small little roses. They're floating down like they just weighed very little. They're just floating down onto the peoples. It's very beautiful.

Now Our Lady is touching Her lips.

Our Lady--"My child, you will work with great haste to warn My children. It is not a wrathful God Who wishes to destroy them nor to bring chastisement upon them. However, in the ways of God that could never be understand by the human mind, He must chastise many to bring them back.

GOOD WILL DIE WITH THE BAD

"My child, I know of your great concern and your anguish, but oftentimes the good must suffer with the bad. The good will also die with the bad.

"I repeat: the Chastisement will be great, but man must understand there is another chastisement. One will come from man, through the hands of man, a war so great that it will almost exterminate the earth but for the merciful heart of the Eternal Father, and the chastisement of the Ball of Redemption.

"My children, you must all pray a constant vigilance of prayer. Many victim souls are needed.

"My child, I have given you a secret message that must remain a secret, only given to those I have allotted this privilege. It is for their edification and a test to them in obedience.

"Now, My child, you will continue with your prayers of atonement, and Jesus will be with you shortly."

Veronica--Our Father, Who art in Heaven, hallowed be Thy name. Thy Kingdom come--

Now Our Lady is raising Her Rosary, the beautiful crucifix on Her Rosary, like this. Oh, it's beautiful! It's all made of pure gold. Oh, it's such a beautiful crucifix. And She's making the sign of the cross: In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. She's turning to the right and making the sign of the cross: In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.

Now She's turning over completely to Her left. And I can see now Michael and--oh, hordes of angels are in back of Our Lady now. I didn't notice them before, but I can see Michael now. He covers the whole sky. You can't miss him when you look back. He is beyond anything to explain. He is so big. And the other angels are beautiful. They're dressed in colors of the rainbow. Oh, they're all different colors.

And now Our Lady is going over to Her left side, and She's making the sign of the cross with Her beautiful crucifix: In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.

Our Lady--"I bless you all, My children, from the Eternal Father and the Spirit of light and My Son."

Veronica--Our Lady is nodding. We are to continue now with the prayers of atonement.

I need some pictures taken now, Our Lady said. . . . all white [candle] lights, no red lights.

[Pause]

The sky is becoming a very beautiful pink color. It's very warming. The sky all about us, in fact, as far as I am able to see, the sky is becoming lighted in pink. It's just beautiful! It's like a--I can't explain it; it's like being in--on a warm summer's day out walking in a field of flowers. That's the feeling I get as I look now into the beautiful pink formation of the sky.

And directly over Our Lady's statue high in the sky I see the pinpoint of light. It's opening up almost host-like now. It's a clear, brilliant, translucent light. I can't explain it in human words. It's like it's made of glass, the light. It's like--oh, it's beautiful!

And Jesus is coming forward. Oh, I can see Him now. He has nothing on His feet. His feet are bare. He has an ecru-colored gown. His gown doesn't look that brilliant white like Our Lady wore. His looks more like it's made of a different type of material. It's heavier, more coarse looking. But He has a brown belting, sort of narrow belting--it might be made of skin--about His waist.

And He has on a cape. The cape--it's beautiful, burgundy-colored cape. Oh, it has a hood. It's the first time I've seen the hood so loose about His shoulders. And it's held together at, just under His chin. You know, not really under His chin, but down under the chin--at the end of His neck, I would say, is this piece of cording that's a gold color.

Jesus is smiling. His hair now is quite loose. The hood has slipped down, farther down onto His shoulders. Now Jesus is placing His hand out like this, 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.

Oh, He's so beautiful! If only I could share with everyone, that Jesus would appear to everyone--see His beautiful eyes! He has the most beautiful, kind eyes. Now Jesus is touching His lips with His first finger, which means to listen and repeat.

Jesus--"My child and My children, the hour is upon mankind, the beginning of the end of time. My child and My children, you must now pray more and be ever alert to the signs that will be given to you in the days ahead.

"My Mother has been upon earth for many years trying to avert mankind from the major Chastisement, a chastisement that has been given in many writings and prophecies through countless earth-years. We had chosen upon earth many seers to go forth with this Message from Heaven.

"My children, I cannot impress you more with the urgency of going faster forward in the time that is left, forward to save your brothers and sisters. I ask you to approach My priesthood. Bishops and cardinals must now accept all of the Message from Heaven, even though it will bring about controversy among them. For it will be bishop against bishop and cardinal against cardinal. For all that is rotten will fall and must not be retained.

"I will not repeat over again the direction from Heaven, but I will say unto you: prepare now, for you will receive the Warning before many will die in the flame of the Ball of Redemption.

"We will ask for more victim souls upon earth. It is sad but a fact that only a few will be saved in the final count. It is sad but a fact that We must now depend upon the few who receive the grace to carry the light now through the darkness that becomes more deepened by man's sin of pride and obstinacy.

"I ask parents to restore discipline to their homes. I demand My pastors to restore discipline to My Church upon earth. You will not convert the masses, but you will set yourselves to be destroyed by the enemies of God, because you do not pray, because you do not seek means of mortification. I say unto you as your God, in the name of your Creator, that as you sow, so shall you reap. And many of you are preparing to reap the whirlwind!

"Do not be affrighted, My child. For all who receive great graces, much is expected of them. There is a price, My child, to pay for Heaven. This price We ask of all is suffering, the way of the cross. No man shall ever be greater than his Master.

CHURCH OF NATURALISM, FREE CONSCIENCE

"Yes, My child, as My Mother has told you in the past, man is endeavoring to build a new church upon earth, a church of naturalism and free conscience, a church of satan.

"Yes, My child, this message will bring much persecution to you and My children of light, but you must remember: as it was in the past, so must it be now, that all children of light will be tested as metal in the fires. It is a short and narrow road to Heaven, and the road now will be shortened for many.

"My children, I shall not go now into long discourse about the many warnings given before the major Warning and Chastisement. This I will not discourse with you of, for they will be evident now in the days to come.

"My heart is torn. My children, My heart bleeds for you. But you did not listen, and the merciful heart of the Father intends to go forward now with His plan.

"You will all keep a constant vigilance of prayer going throughout your country and the world. Do not spend your time with trifles, My child. Many shall seek to stop the mission, but go forward and put your viewpoint, My child, in a new prospect--your viewpoint in relation to what is important and what is not important in your mission. You must not place any human being above the Creator's work.

PRICE FOR SAINTHOOD

"Full dedication is the road to purity, sanctification, and sainthood, My child. There will be many latter day saints created. But there is a price for it, My child. Remember this when the thorns are heavy and piercing."

Veronica--Now Jesus is placing His hand out, like this. He's looking to the right and extending His hand 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 coming down from the right side. I didn't see Her standing over there. She's joining Jesus now, and Michael is there now. He's like a protecting force. He really doesn't need anyone because he's huge! I think he would scare everyone half to death if they ever saw him, the size of him--so magnificent! I mean the enemies. But those who love him wouldn't be frightened because of his size. They would feel very well protected and happy.

Our Lady now is stand--She's going around Jesus to stand at His right side. And I can see now coming through the sky many peoples. And I do notice there are three Popes. I know they're Popes because they have on very high--you know, the beehive crowns, the papal tiaras. There are three of them. They're all in white, but they have on different colored slippers. This is strange. One has on red slippers, one has on white slippers, and the other one has on what looks like pale gold, like yellow slippers. I guess that indicates who they are, but it's a mystery. I don't recognize them, the light's so bright. But red, and the gold slippers. Wow! And the white slippers! That must mean something, which the good Lord will have to give me the meaning of.

But they are all--oh, they are all very happy and, sort of happy, but one is putting his hands up like this. He has white gloves on, and he's holding up two fingers. I don't know what that means. He's standing there. He has now a crozier in his left hand and he's holding two fingers up like this, in his glove. His gloves look a little big on his hands, you know, on his fingers. But the two fingers are being held up. And he's--I don't know. He's saying something with his head, because he's shaking it like this, which means yes. And now he's putting his hand up again with two fingers. He's the one with the white slippers on his feet. Wow!

Oh, Jesus is smiling. I guess He thinks it's funny. Our Lady is also smiling. Oh, now They're pointing over to Their left side of the sky, and there's a huge ball now. It looks like a globe forming. And on top of it is a cross. And now I see the letters forming. The ball is round, and the cross on top, and the letters are forming: "R" redemption, grace, and peace. "R G P": redemption first, grace, and peace.

Now the ball seems to be evaporating. I can't see it anymore. And now Our Lady is taking Her Rosary also from Her--She had it by Her, you know, on Her waistline--and She's removing it now and extending the crucifix out and making the sign of the cross: In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.

And now Our Lady is also taking something from--oh, I see. It was by Her neck, and She's showing that She's wearing the Scapular. Oh, She has a Scapular. It's quite small. I didn't notice it before. The Scapular and the Rosary. Oh, Our Lady wants us to wear the Scapular and pray the Rosary more often.

Now Jesus is nodding. He's placing his hand up, and He's making the sign of the cross, like this. And now He's nodding and going like this to me.

Jesus--"Now, My child and My children, you will continue with the prayers of atonement."

Veronica--Our Lady now has placed Her hand like this.

Our Lady--"You will take the photographs, My child, and read them well."

Veronica--We have to take the photographs. . . . We need the three candles. . . . You have the candles? . . . It doesn't matter [referring to the color of the candle glass]. Three candles . . . [tape cuts off].

 

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.
