America at War
Heaven Speaks Today, No. 18

Rosary Power for Peace

OUR LADY'S COUNSEL below seems to point to the futility of this U.S. war with Iraq. In the end, this may accomplish nothing but heavy losses for U.S. soldiers, grief for their mothers, and the safety and security of our nation threatened even more.
     Our Lady, who predicted the 9/11 attack years before it happened, has already solemnly warned that more terrorism will strike America: “There will be blood flowing in the streets of the United States”
(Sept. 27, 1986; see also Attack on America, HST, No. 12).
     Nonetheless, the military battle is raging now and so with heavy hearts and with our nation “embroiled in another war,” we beg Our Lady of the Roses, Mary Help of Mothers–a title of special distinction and power for these latter days–to intervene and avert a potential bloodbath in Baghdad and beyond.

Vigils, Holy Hours
offered for peace

     Prayer can move mountains, so we are offering indefinitely our regularly-scheduled Rosary Vigils and Sunday Holy Hours for peace in the world. We are hopeful that this will help bring about a speedy conclusion to this terrible conflict. If only the millions of antiwar protesters were praying the Rosary, “the instrument of peace” (Our Lady, Feb. 10, 1973).
     We pray that the casualties will be light and that Our Lady will give special protection for U.S. and allied armed forces and the innocents of Iraq, especially the women and children.

War to the finish
“There is a terrible punishment scheduled for the earth. If you, My child and My children, all who hear My words, will go forward as soldiers of peace this time, because–I say peace, because your country will soon be embroiled in another war. . . .
“The next war will embroil many nations. It will be a war to the finish. Man has gained much knowledge, not to prevent destruction, but to maintain it for their own gluttony, their own loss of face, and for the belittlement of his fellow man.”
Our Lady, June 18, 1994

Useless calling
“My children, you must understand: your country, the United States, will become involved and be asked to send more young to be slaughtered in foreign lands. You must not follow that calling. It will be useless.”
Our Lady, October 6, 1978

A temptation
“The enemy is closing in fast upon you. You are being tempted now to bring your sons to the foreign shores of foreign nations to fight and lose their lives. Is this what you want? How many hearts of parents will be torn by the carnage of receiving greetings from the United States or Canada, from the Army, the Navy, the Marines, saying: ‘Your son is dead or missing in action.’
“Is this what you want? Cannot you do a slight penance for your God, for your neighbors? Love your neighbors.”
Jesus, June 6, 1987

A large red sickle clearly appears (compare with communist emblem). The next morning The New York Times reported that Russia was “supplying Iraq with sophisticated military equipment for use against the United States” and that the support is “ongoing”!litary equipment for use against the United States” and that the support is “ongoing”!
     Our Lady has warned us for years that Russia is not converted–atheistic communism still rules in the Kremlin–but is perpetrating a diabolical ruse as a means to achieve their longtime stated objective of worldwide communist domination.

     You will clearly note the heart and the cursive capital “I” (top center) for Iraq. On March 21, all the patriarchs and bishops of Iraq, representing over one million Iraqi Catholics, consecrated their country to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.


Persian Gulf disaster
“Your country will meet with a greater distress and loss of life in the Gulf, the Persian Gulf.”
Our Lady, June 6, 1987

Punishment for sin
“Your country, the United States of America, shall be chastised. My heart is bereaved by the knowledge of the loss of great life that will come about in this minor chastisement. Wars are a punishment for man’s sins.”
Our Lady, November 20, 1979

Anguished Moms
“The Middle East crisis will worsen. My heart is torn with sorrow for what lies ahead. I cry for the mothers of these lost sons. I cry for the mothers of these broken bodies. Pray to hold back the engulfment that lies ahead.”
Our Lady, October 2, 1970

Mark of antichrist
Veronica: If you will read like a clock our so-called peace symbol of today, you will find the whole story of what is going on in the time of Armageddon. For the hands will point to twelve, which means that the hour has struck; six, for the arrival of 666; four, the Antichrist forces, against eight, the Eucharist, the priesthood of Jesus, and the Roman Catholic Church.

Bloody sickle
“When the world cries peace the highest and the loudest, know that the destruction is at hand! . . .
“I warned you in Fatima that, unless you prayed and did penance, Russia and the agents of the sickle and the hammer would go throughout the world cutting down nations and bringing death, destruction, and slavery.”
Our Lady, April 2, 1977

Communist ruse
“Do not be deceived, My children. Russia is not free. It is a cosmetic act to delude you. Lenin and Stalin used the same tactics. . . .
“They have not disposed of their armaments. . . . They store them in other nations. They have the same goals as their forefathers.”
Our Lady, June 18, 1992

Consecrate Russia or else
“The red horse is war! And war is in the balance next, My child. And what can you do about this? This is My direction from Heaven–and We hope, My children, that you will get this out to the world: Unless the bishops and the Holy Father in unity with all the bishops of the world, unless they consecrate Russia to My Mother’s Immaculate Heart, the world will be doomed!”
Jesus, June 17, 1989

Guaranteed security
“Both front and back doors must have a crucifix. I say this to you because there will be carnage within your areas, and this will pass you by if you keep your crucifix upon your doors.”
Jesus, June 30, 1984

Weapons that build
“I have promised you peace, My children, if you will go forth with your Rosary in one hand and the brown Scapular about your neck.”
Our Lady, July 1, 1985

True Friends
“My children of the world, as My Mother counseled you in the past, We will not abandon you. We will be with you as long as there is a Rosary recited in your country.”
Jesus, June 18, 1992


On Sunday night, May 6, 1990, the following was given to Veronica from Our Lady: “The present world condition is the calm before the storm. More rosaries are needed.”
     On Wednesday, August 8, 1990, at 9:50 a.m., Our Lady said to Veronica: “Wars are a punishment for man’s sins. Unless you pray more, your sons will die on foreign shores.”
     About two weeks later, Our Lady told Veronica that if the boys should go to war their “bodies would be eaten by the buzzards.”
     On Tuesday, September 11, 1990, Our Lady revealed to Veronica that there would be a terrorist attack “on the state building.” Veronica knew immediately this was alluding to the Empire State building in New York City.
     On Thursday, December 13, 1990, at approximately 10:30 a.m., Our Lady said: “There are gross errors in the world. There will be a most disastrous war unless you now pray for peace at the Holy Hour and any free time you may have.”
     War as described many times in the past by Our Lady to Veronica: “man’s inhumanity to man.”
