Miracle of the Doves | A Peace of Heaven | Home

March 2, 2001
First Friday

Dear Friend of Our Lady,

We are just elated about the public miracle performed by the Eternal Father with the heart-stopping display of doves, probably the most spectacular ever on the sacred grounds. Witnessed by over 100 pilgrims, it occurred on Friday, February 2, the Feast of the Purification of the Blessed Virgin Mary. Not coincidentally, this feast recalls Mary’s sacrificial offering in the temple of a pair of doves in fulfillment of the Law of Moses for women after childbirth.


It all began at the end of the blessing of Jesus (about 9 p.m.) when hundreds of pure white doves shot out like arrows from the high rolling clouds and glided across the cold dark sky until they disappeared into the horizon. This happened in waves with one flock diving towards the Vatican Pavilion and Our Lady’s statue. It all lasted about 20 minutes with a show of, at least, 1000 doves. Some pilgrims estimate much more.

Nonetheless, it electrified the crowd and moved many to tears. For the live report and much more, and to capture the emotion and intensity of this gift from God, order show No. 162 of St. Michael’s Radio Program (see box below).

We’re looking forward to seeing you on the sacred grounds.

May God bless you through Our Lady and the greatest Warrior of Heaven,

Vincent McDonnell
Vigil Coordinator


P.S. We urge you to make a strong effort to disseminate the new Heaven Speaks Today on the Middle East. This topic is daily news and on the minds of everyone. A lot of people have heard Dan Rather and others speak about this hot spot, but we think a lot of people might want to hear what Heaven has to say, too.

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.
