Offering of Sunday Holy Hour for election of pope
Statement from SMWA on Pope John Paul II's death | Home
Good pope or anti-pope?

efore and during this conclave, we all have to pray our hearts out in the hope that Holy Mother Church is blessed with a good Pope or we may be cursed with the “anti-pope of history.” That’s the bottom line.

Indeed we are in the midst of a great crisis but we also have the answer from Our Lady: “Pray and pray again.” The power of prayer is immeasurable. It worked for the 1978 conclave when, instead of getting an antichrist pope, we were gifted with the illustrious Pope John Paul II.

On the following two pages are enlightening excerpts from the Message from Heaven. Some of the messages pertain to the 1978 conclaves, but what Our Lady and Our Lord said then is even truer now and more urgent, too, with the acceleration of evil in the past 27 years.

This is a desperate situation that requires a desperate outpouring of love. Let our extra prayers, sacrifices, fastings, Masses, Rosaries and works of charity rise now to the Father for the next few weeks.

We did it before in 1978, let’s do it again in 2005. (Special Rosary Vigil)


“The fate of humanity and the world lies in the hands and the hearts of the faithful.” Our Lady, Sept. 7, 1985


Our Lady: “I come to you with great sadness of heart to counsel you, as your Mother, to pray a constant vigilance of prayer now in your country and in all the countries upon earth. I cannot at this time urge you enough, My children, to pray and pray again, that these prayers rising to the Eternal Father in Heaven may reverberate throughout the world and into the hearts of those who will place upon the Seat of Peter a new pope. And My children, unless you pray, upon the Seat of Peter will be placed 666, the agent of hell in human form. . . .”

Jesus: “This has been a time in history most crucial to the lives of mankind and the well-being of My House, My Church upon earth. . . .

“Lucifer and his agents, the forces of 666 that now are ready to enter upon the Seat of Peter. . . .

“Pray for your bishops; pray for your cardinals. And My children, you must keep a constant vigilance of prayer going until the Seat of Peter is filled. Woe to the man who rejects the counsel of My Mother! A Church in darkness wears a band of death about it.”
August 14, 1978

“Before the forming of the coming council, the conclave, you will all pray daily the beads of prayer, the Rosary, that the Seat of Peter shall not be covered in darkness. . . .

“My children, you will continue now with your prayers of atonement. Pray constantly for your cardinals in Rome. The outcome of the council will be the deciding focal point for the coming of the Warning and great Chastisement to mankind.”
Our Lady, August 19, 1978

Our Lady: “My children, a conclave shall start, and without prayers you will receive one on the Seat of Peter, one with dark spirits, consorting with the devil. . . .”

Jesus: “You will seek for the Seat of Peter a man of justice. Politics and money shall not guide you as it has in the past! You will seat in the Seat of Peter a man of piety, a man who has not extinguished the Faith, and a man who accepts the truth from the beginning, not seeking change!”
October 6, 1978

“The Holy Roman Catholic Church of My Son will stand. The members shall be reduced to few. Only a remnant, My child, shall carry the banner Faithful and True. But the gates of hell shall fight a heavy battle against My Son’s Church, but they shall not succeed.”
Our Lady, May 14, 1977

Veronica: Our Lady now is desperately trying to take Her mantle from both sides and stand on the Basilica [St. Peter’s]. All about Her, I see faces, hundreds of faces, shocked faces, tears crying and falling upon the multitudes.

“What is this, Blessed Mother?”

Our Lady: “My child, you are looking into Rome on that horrendous day when the Holy Father shall leave you. I say ‘shall’ because the message is being rejected in Rome. The previous messages about this carnage to the Holy See and the Holy Father have been taken with a manner of laughter. Too late will they laugh and refer to My visitation in New York as being absurd.”
September 14, 1985


“Do not be deceived. Their father is the father of all liars: satan. Their master plan is in motion. Pray for the light.  Minds are clouded.  I repeat: it is a ruse.”
Our Lady, December 18, 1991
*the so-called fall of communism in Russia

“The plan . . . of communism is to overthrow the rule in the Eternal City, gain control in politics in a manner to control the world. They seek to overthrow Rome, these agents of hell and atheism.”
Our Lady, October 6, 1976

“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!”
Our Lady, November 20, 1978

“The forces of communism are gaining and will enter upon the Seat of Peter. You will recognize, My children, by the directions that shall come from Rome.”
Our Lady, March 25, 1978

“The Brown Bear of communism, of red orientation, will seek to . . . place on the Seat of Peter a communist puppet known by all as the White Bear. . . . Disaster lies ahead in Rome if this happens.”
Jesus, June 18, 1991


“My House, My Church upon earth is passing through a trial far greater than any in past history. Lucifer and his agents now are working with diligence and are most successful at this moment in their striving to topple the Seat of Peter and to place in Rome a pope that is the anti-pope of history.

“I assure you, My children, that if you continue on your present course, you shall receive this anti-pope. . . . You need a strong pope, a true Holy Father in Rome.”
Jesus, June 18, 1978

“I counseled you in My visitation to the children at La Salette that unless you pray, satan shall enter into the holy city of Rome, and satan shall set himself beside My Son’s altar! Who cared to listen to My counsel? Pride! Man filled with pride. Pride is a major sin in the hearts of man. And pride always came before the fall!

“I counseled you at Fatima, and who gave My counsel to the world? Pride and arrogance anew! A secret was to be revealed, and who counseled and prepared the world to the onslaught of satan into My Son’s House? No one!”
Our Lady, December 31, 1977

“666 has entered into Rome, the Eternal City, seeking to set upon the Chair of Peter an agent of hell! My Church, My House upon earth, shall not crumble by the onslaught of satan! It will be a good and just battleground allowed by the Eternal Father for separating the wheat from the chaff.”
Jesus, June 16, 1977

“Yes, a man of dark secrets and spirit will be placed upon the Seat of Peter. Those who have the light know a true Vicar, but those who are in darkness will work for Lucifer.”
Jesus, October 6, 1978

Veronica: I know they’re demons. . . . They all are looking about with a smug look of satisfaction on their faces. . . . So evil, mean! Now one is pointing over–oh, he’s pointing over, and I can see St. Peter’s, the cathedral. . . . He has this large, red cardinals hat in his hand. He said: “I will sit upon the throne of Peter, and I will destr-o-y the Church of God!”
 . . . Now he’s being joined by two human beings. Oh, my goodness! Oh! Oh, I see him actually...infusing into him! He’s entering into him!
April 14, 1973

Veronica: If you think things are going crazy now wait until you see what happens if he gets into the Seat of Peter. It will be like absolute mass insanity.
April 18, 1976

“The forces are gathering to bring about the capitulation of the Seat of Peter to communism and atheism, all promoted in the name of humanism. My children, all this is coming about fast because man has neglected sacrifice and prayer. . . .
“The state of your world has been reduced by the immorality. The state of your world is capitulating now to all of the forces of the octopus that will seek to bring about a one-world religion and a one-world government under a supreme dictator of evil.”
Our Lady, March 18, 1978

Q & A

Wasn’t John Paul II the pope that was supposed to flee before the Warning?
Jesus said, “When you see, when you hear, when you feel the revolution in Rome, when you see the Holy Father fleeing, seeking a refuge in another land, know that the time is ripe”
(September 14, 1976). This message was actually given during Pope Paul VI’s pontificate, but as you can see Jesus never named the pope, although many would, naturally, assume it was John Paul II.

Does this prophecy above still hold?
Presumably. Although everything hinges on prayers and who emerges from this conclave–is it a good guy or a bad guy?

Didn’t Our Lady say that all prophecy is conditional?
Absolutely. Jesus and Mary have said it a thousand times: “All prophecy, My children, all warnings have been conditional, conditional to man’s response”
(Our Lady, June 24, 1976). That’s why prophecy can be a little tricky at times. We don’t see what God sees. Besides, the purpose of prophecy is not about instant fulfillment or punishment, but to warn the world of the consequences if we don’t listen, make amends, etc. If we didn’t get a chance, what good is a warning or prophecy?

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 tradition, which will also include a cloistered convent.

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.
