Priest blesses Terri Schiavo with rose petal

March 24, 2005, Holy Thursday

We have some good news to report even amidst this deplorable state of affairs in Florida and the wanton disregard for human compassion and the culture of life. About ten days ago, the long-suffering Terri Schiavo was blessed by Msgr. Thaddeus Malanowski with the rose petal in his hand and he placed it also on her forehead.

What a wonderful comfort and consolation this is for Terri and for all the faithful knowing that this powerful instrument of grace and peace, blessed by Jesus and His Blessed Mother on Their sacred grounds in Bayside, touched this poor and anguished soul in her final agony.

Even if her death is now presumably imminent because of the perverse court decisions, Terri has been visited and refreshed from On High by Jesus and Mary in a personal way and has been graced and strengthened for the last leg of her torturous journey.

“No man shall murder–and it is murder, My children, when he shall give the excuse of saying an individual is no longer living or a part of the world because he has become emaciated, because he lives only with prayers and the help of all scientific means. The Eternal Father has placed a soul in that body. That body is the temple of the Holy Spirit! No man can know when that soul must return to the Eternal Father. No man shall hasten its exit from a body by murder! Euthanasia is murder! Shall you become a judge over the living and the dead?”

Our Lady, June 5, 1976

Msgr. Malanowski was sent the blessed rose petal by Marion Morris, long-time devotee and Stamford, Conn., organizer. Monsignor would often help out in Mrs. Morris’ parish church and they have remained good friends even after he retired to Florida. Mrs. Morris had specifically requested of the good monsignor that he bless Terri with the rose petal and apply it to her forehead. In their recent phone call, monsignor said he had fulfilled both requests.

If you follow the news, you might recognize his name. For years, he has been the principal priest administering to Terri’s spiritual needs (or trying to). He has encountered great opposition from many sides and has even been barred from Terri’s hospital room. As we write this now he is not allowed to give Terri Viaticum.

We commend the monsignor for his courage and faith, especially for his good work with the rose petal.

We have been storming Heaven with prayers and Rosaries, as we know you are, in our lay community and on the sacred grounds that true justice, compassion and common sense prevail. Even a condemned criminal is granted a final meal of his choice but Terri Schiavo cannot even get a drop of water!

May God forgive this nation and help us or we could be the next victims of the new Auschwitz mentality so cruelly exhibited in Florida in the Year of Our Lord 2005.

Stay strong through Our Lady of the Roses, Mary Help of Mothers.

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.
