Be a good boy scout
Although soul-preparation is the most important preparation you can do–wearing sacramentals, being in the state of grace–we cannot forget the body either. With more terrorism and wars, a monetary crash, earthquakes and other disasters threatening, it’s only good common sense to prepare yourself and your loved ones for these latter-day events predicted by Our Lady and Our Lord. Veronica of the Cross had stated that there should be at least two weeks supply per person. The following has been adapted from the emergency preparedness manual of the American Red Cross.



drinking: purify (boil/distill/filter) then store in plastic containers such as soft drink bottles; avoid using containers that will decompose or break, such as milk cartons or glass bottles
sanitation: use 30 or 55 gallon trash barrel, line with thick plastic bag and duct tape outside of barrel for strengthening; immovable when full, so settle in permanent spot; then fill with tap water, make sure your floor can support the weight
- replace every 6-12 months; store in a dark cool place; store one gallon of water per person per day (two quarts for drinking, two quarts for food preparation/ sanitation)


• ready-to-eat canned meats, fish, fruits and vegetables
• canned juices, milk, soup (if powdered, store extra water)
• staples–sugar, salt, pepper
• high energy foods–peanut butter, jelly, crackers, granola bars, trail mix
• vitamins
• foods for infants, elderly persons or persons on special diets
• comfort/stress foods–cookies, hard candy, sweetened cereals, lollipops, instant coffee, tea bags
- rotate every 6-12 months; select foods that are non-perishable and require no refrigeration, preparation or cooking and little or no water; expect to be without utilities; if you must heat food, use sterno

“I wish that you remember these instructions . . . to keep in your homes a good supply of canned goods.”

Our Lady, July 1, 1985

You will not be overwhelmed by the idea of latter-day preparation if you focus on the basic necessities that were given by Our Lady in Her messages. In taking small steps to secure these goods, you will eventually find yourself prepared. Trust in Divine Providence, but do your shopping too. This is an investment that is definitely worth your time, effort and expense.

“In justice and for penance, there will be visited upon your earth great trials: droughts, famine, rotting crops, hurricanes, floods, all manner of earth tremors and disturbances of nature, increasing in volume, spreading throughout your world. There will be eruptions and manifestations that shall bring terror to the hearts of many, in places that have never seen nor heard of such volume of sound and fierce eruptions of the earth.”
St. Michael, August 21, 1976

“O My children, how many will try to go back and restore their homes when it is too late! Keep blessed candles, water, blankets, food within your homes.”
Our Lady, June 12, 1976

“How well you listened to Us when We told you to place on your shelves cans of food, jars of water, blankets. You found it very cold, My child, without heat and without light, and without any form of recreation other than to pray....*
      “Retain your crucifix on your doors. And keep your supply of earthly goods, though they are needed for your human body: the canned food, the candles, the water, and the blankets. A sudden cold shall come upon mankind, and many shall die from the cold.”
Jesus, October 5, 1985

*Our Lord is referring to Hurricane Gloria that hammered the Northeast on September 27, 1985, including Long Island where Veronica lived. Gloria killed 11 people and is the 13th costliest hurricane in U.S. history with damage totaling nearly a billion.

“My children, not only with the canned foods will you store just food, but you must also make known to your families and your friends that they had best keep blankets and water in tight containers; for there will be on the onset of the Chastisement, there will be nothing you can buy due to contamination....
      “My child, I wish that you boil the water in your home. I will tell you now, My children, if you are receiving waters for your use in your homes, it must be boiled, because the contamination of chemicals and waste matter–nuclear waste matter–is driving down into the soils of the nation and polluting these waters, which will bring imminent death to many.”
Our Lady, July 1, 1985

“So many of you will not be ready! Keep your waters clean in your bottles.”
Our Lady, June 18, 1988

“Your end can come by day. It will come upon you quickly, and how many shall be prepared? Do you have your candles? Do you have your water, your canned food, and your blankets? It will become an extremely cold day with the start of the Tribulation, and you will welcome having these on hand, My children. Do not take this lightly, but abide by Our direction and you shall not be caught short of provisions.”
Jesus, November 1, 1985

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.
