The Message of Our Lady and Our Lord to Veronica of the Cross

Possessed cardinals seize control of Rome

February 1, 1973

Eve of the Purification of the Blessed Virgin Mary

Our Lady--". . . My words will have entered into the hearts of many. Many will cast them aside, deferring eternal life with the Father to damnation with Lucifer.

"O My children, how I long to open before your eyes the future. I cannot hold back the arm of punishment much longer. Sin and abominations more despicable than since the beginning of creation are being conceived in the minds and hearts of man. These abominations have been created by satan in his plan to capture all children destined for the Kingdom of the Father.


"[There will] be visited upon your country a plague. Many children will be taken from your world. It will be an act of mercy from the Father. Many young souls will be destined for the kingdom of hell, claimed by Lucifer, were they to remain upon earth.

"The Father will chastise those He loves. Many minds have been poisoned by satan, and the world goes into deep darkness.

"What is to come upon your world was planned for a great time in the future. But you have hardened your hearts and turned deafened ears to Our pleas, so your future will be now. All who are of well spirit have nothing to fear.

"[Our] hearts are torn by the many who choose of free will to cast aside the graces given by the Father. Many have accepted the false maxims of humanism, modernism, and pure satanism. Delusion! Delusion allowed by the Father for the separation of the sheep from the goats. Weep not, My child, for those who fall into hell, for they will have had every opportunity, with their eyes open, to stay on the path to the Kingdom.

"[Prayer], atonement, and sacrifice, a constant vigil of prayer in your country: that is all the direction you will need. You do not fight the war of the spirits with idle words cast on the winds, bargaining for pieces of silver with souls, seeking self-glory and worldly honors, temporary in your state of life. You bargain your souls for your temporary existence and lose eternity!"


Veronica--. . . a large church, and there are many figures dressed very regally entering into this church. They are strangers. I do not recognize them. It is in the center of a large square. And over the dome there's a cross. The cross is very large. Oh! [Veronica bursts into tears.] On the cross . . . is the Holy Father. Looking up . . . looking up, and down by the doors . . . . [Veronica continues in a sobbing voice.] are cardinals. . . . I, I can--

I see now a large room. There's a desk by the window, and standing outside are many clergy looking in the window. And I see our Holy Father sitting at the desk. He's very, very weak. He seems unable to hold himself in the chair. He now walks over to the side of the room. There's a large statue of the Blessed Mother. He's praying to Our Lady. He's holding up his hands now, imploring Her for help. On his hands are the marks of the crucifixion. [Veronica continues to weep.]

Outside the door there are two cardinals standing. Each one has a key, a large golden key in his hand. They've removed their hats. Now they removed their hats . . . oh, they're, they're, they're demons! [Veronica gasps in great distress.] They're now taking the keys and they're tying them up with a rope. They're whispering to each other now. And they're pointing, they're pointing over to another cardinal. He stands there with a cross, and he's holding out his hand. And these two cardinals are now giving him the keys.

I know now it's St. Peter's, the large church. And standing over it is Michael. He's holding a banner, and he says:

St. Michael--"Enter me into the House of God, or I will be returned forcibly into the House of God!"

Veronica--Now Our Lady, Our Lady--Our Lady's standing at the right side of the flagpole. She's talking very low. Our Lady says:

Our Lady--"Man is walking the ladder down to his own destruction. Tears and blood will mix upon earth, washing your earth clean, cleansing it of the abominations to the Sacred Heart of My Son.

"Man upon earth has chosen to give the creation of the Father to satan. The abyss is open; the war rages now in full battle. The ultimate victory will be with the Father. We watch, We wait, and We separate the sheep.

"[My] child, there is great sorrow in your heart. We cannot at this time lighten your cross. Many victim souls, victims to the merciful love of Our Father, victims who will willingly give of themselves for the repatriation of many souls that are falling into darkness . . . ."

Veronica--. . . is standing with Our Lady, Saint Thomas. He said:


St. Thomas--"You must say Aquinas, my child. Saint Thomas Aquinas.

"Rigid discipline is necessary in the rule of all dedicated. Discipline and obedience to the will of God and not the will of man must be restored upon earth. Your offenses against your God and your destruction of souls, leading more onto the path into darkness, have not passed unnoticed by the Father. You have received your warning.

"Men of God in the House of God, turn back from your ways of satan! Recognize the hand of satan upon you. Starve your souls of the demons that you have allowed to enter upon you! Return to discipline and the rule! You will not take our words and rewrite them to satisfy the desires of mere man! Have you placed yourself beyond the angels? They, too, were cast from the Kingdom for their arrogance. Intellectual pride has led you down the wrong road. Many mitres will fall into hell."

Veronica--[Saint Theresa] is now standing next to Our Lady.


St. Theresa--"Veronica, my sister, do not be saddened now. We have cried, and our tears have fallen upon you and the world. I have given--yes, I have left upon your earth my little plan for salvation, given me by Our Lady: trust and confidence and love. Love our Jesus, love our Father, and call to the Holy Ghost. No one is ever passed by unanswered. Satan seeks to remove from among you the existence of these truths.

"Manifestations will be given to those chosen by the Father to propagate the work of saving souls by the intercession of Mary, the Mother of God, from these sacred grounds, hallowed by Her presence."

Veronica--Now Gabriel and Raphael are coming very close down by the flagpole on the left. He's leaning over, and he's saying:


St. Gabriel--"You have not chosen to keep in constant contact with your protector, my child. Tusazeri has always been with you; do not forget who has been placed to guide you."

Veronica--I . . . have asked Our Lady if I could have permission to tell who Tusazeri is. Our Lady says I may. Tusazeri is one of the high archangels of Heaven who Jesus sent to be with me when Theresa started the Mission for Heaven in 1968. He was sent by Jesus to protect me in this work against satan. Many times I have forgotten to call upon him when there are difficulties.

Our Lady--"[I caution] you, My child, to remain more secluded. I do this for your protection and for the mission which I have given you. Satan comes in many faces and many forms. We do not wish you to be exposed to more suffering than necessary. Retire, My child, more from this world which now has been given to satan. The four agents of hell on special mission are accomplishing their despicable task.

"Many will be removed from the tribulations before the coming of My Son to set the world right again.

"The six days of suffering are not for you, My child. . . . [gap in tape] that you will be less disturbed by the workings of satan if you tell your beads when your heart grows heavy.

"[Many] ask for signs; many will receive them when they open their hearts to the Holy Spirit. Graces in abundance We shower upon you. These consecrated grounds will be instrumental in bringing many souls back into the light.

"[An] agent of special mission now roams in the western world. He will create abominations that can only be conceived from the mind of satan. It is power against power. The father of all liars has led many astray, blinded them to the truth.

"Pray, pray, My children, a constant vigilance of prayer: bead to bead, link to link, state to state, and country to country, unified by prayer against the common enemy of your God."


Veronica--Oh, now by Our Lady there's a--oh, there's a great light. And there--oh! Oh, it's Jacinta! I know her now, and she's pointing over to the trees. And she's holding up one finger. She says:

Jacinta--"All has come true as I gave to you from Our Lady, but Our Father still plans to bring you back.

"Everyone has so much in many things upon your earth, but yet they all look so unhappy. They are rich, and yet they are so poor.

"I come to tell you of the poor Holy Father. I cry much for him. We love him. But man will destroy him now.

"Many little children are being destroyed on your earth. Our Father sent the angels to you, but you send them back to us. It is only because satan does not want a large army upon earth of our Father's children. Those that will be left will bring much grief and misery to the world, for they will be taken by satan and used.

"I gave you the picture. I wrote on your picture. I did not know how to write much on earth, but I wrote. Our Father showed me how to write. Won't you give everyone my picture? I want them to remember what I tried to tell them."

Veronica--Our Lady now has come over to Jacinta, and She's placed Her arm about her. And there's a little boy standing next to Jacinta. I know he's Francisco. He has his hat off now. He's standing with his hat, like a long cap, in his hand. And he's smiling.

I see now a large cross over St. Peter's. It's a very large cross, but now it's bending, it's bending. And now the cross is being bent like a pretzel, and it forms a large number "4". I know the "4" means the evil man.


Our Lady--"The cross of Christ is to be replaced by the worship of man, no longer the cross of the living God. Man has set himself up as an idol. All idols are destroyed by the Father.

"Life upon your earth will be shortened. The extension would bring more souls into the darkness. I have gone throughout the world and prepared you. You will continue, My child, to send out Our message to the world. We will give you more help."

Veronica--I am to tell B. C. that She is very happy that he accepted the graces of the past to recognize the plan of satan.

Our Lady--"I sent you a test, My son, and you have not failed Us."

Veronica--Our Lady now is standing at the right side of the flagpole, and She's holding this very large Rosary. It's beautiful. Oh, the beads are very large. Oh, they're pearls. They're beautiful. And when they--when She--Our Lady is turning over towards the right side, and the pearls have a very pink glow. They're beautiful. But the bead of the Our Father is so golden. And Our Lady is smiling now, and She's looking down, and She's pointing over to the right. Oh, I know!

Now Our Lady is raising the crucifix; it's a very large, golden crucifix on Her Rosary. And She's now blessing a dedicated son. Now Our Lady is leaning over, and I see Her making the sign of the cross: In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.

Our Lady--"Continue, My children, now with your prayers, for many are needed to hold back the darkness.

"Before this battle is over, many who remain to stand forth to protect the honor of My Son will be subjected to torments from their own. Many martyrs will enter into the Kingdom. The persecution within the House of God will be heavy. The agents of hell seek to destroy My Son's House on earth. Many of the dedicated will grow weak and fall in with the plan of satan, preferring to accept a life without suffering on earth, refusing and casting from their minds the reality of the eternal life of the Kingdom.


"The desecration to the Body of My Son must be stopped now! The abominations have reached into the House of My Son.

"The weakness can be placed upon the dedicated because they have cast aside the necessity of prayer. They have grown soft in the ways of the world.

"Every man of God in the House of God must set himself forth as an example of the living God. As a man of God chosen from the world to lead the sheep, he has been endowed with the graces to gather the souls. He can take these graces and cast them aside, accepting to bargain with Lucifer, and with his power as a fallen man of God, he has the power to take many souls with him into hell!

"We watch this battle, and the Father has His plan. No evil will ever be triumphant. The Father allows this condition to reach the high point of iniquity, and then it will be stopped!"

Veronica--[Jesus] has His hand raised like this. I try to imitate. And He's saying:

Jesus--"I bless you: In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost."

Veronica--And He's making the sign like this, like the Trinity. Oh, yes. Now Jesus said . . . [gap in tape].

I see Our Lady.

"Oh, we're so wet down here."

She said:

Our Lady--"My child, you haven't passed over the veil yet."

Veronica--Oh, now Our Lady is now joining Jesus. She's floating over to the side of Jesus. Oh, and Jesus now has placed His mantle . . . it's a very deep--not red, but it's like a burgundy, like a maroon color. And He's wearing slippers. They're like sandals; they're brown. And His gown under the mantle is like a cream color.

Now Jesus is bending over. Oh, He's going to bless everyone on the left side of the flagpole. Oh, He's raising His hand now, like this, and He's making the sign of the Trinity: In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.


Now Our Lady and Jesus are coming over, and They're standing just at the right side of the flagpole. Oh! I--oh, there's a nun now, there's a nun coming down. She's just come out of the sky. Oh, I know who she is now--it's Rita. And she's bowing down, and she's saying:

St. Rita--"Oh, Evelyn*, my poor sister, carry your cross. Join me and I will help you carry your cross. Find the little book and learn the lesson I leave to you."

*One of Veronica's close Shrine workers.

Veronica--Oh! Now Jesus is--oh, this is--now He's going to bless all again. He's standing here. And Our Lady is raising at the same time Her large, golden crucifix upon Her Rosary. Now the Rosary, though--it's strange; now the Rosary is still in place. Oh, it's left Our Lady's hand. The Rosary is suspended in the air. And Our Lady is extending Her crucifix up and blessing now: In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.

Now Jesus is leaning forward, and I'm to repeat:

Jesus--"I send among you the Holy Spirit. Open your hearts and He will enter upon you. None will be lost if they will seek the light. All this We give to you for the asking.


"The tribulations will be given for the cleansing of your earth. The pages are turning very fast, much faster than the Father would wish. But man now has in his power to govern the remaining hours of his time upon earth. We follow your course. We watch; We wait with great hope. But you will find in the days ahead that the words given to you by My Mother throughout your world were not given without reason. You have been warned many times. Now the decision is with man."

Veronica--Now it's growing very dark. And Jesus now--He hasn't turned His back, but I notice that now He's gone back and moved over to the left side of the flagpole. And Our Lady is just slightly behind Him. And Our Lady now is whispering to me:

Our Lady--"Continue with your prayers, My child. The days ahead will make known to you the necessity for these prayers. Great trials are to enter upon your country and the world. Man has made the road and set the pace for his own destruction.

"In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost."

[Later, Veronica spoke to some of the pilgrims nearby.]

Veronica--. . . and also now that She is in Heaven, She is still guiding the dedicated priests on earth and trying to lead them away from the darkness that so many are falling into. Not only the dedicated, but the lay souls here on earth, Jesus said.

So now we're going to sing the song that Our Lady finds pleasing because it brings back Her message given at Fatima, which Our Lady said wasn't heeded too well. And now it's years too late since the message of Fatima. And She does hope that by coming here to Bayside and other places throughout the world, that Her message at Fatima will be made more known and followed. Because now we have reached the crisis point on earth. And what happens now depends on how soon the Ball of Redemption is sent upon us.

Our Lady said, as you understand this evening, the crucifixion of Pope Paul in Rome. You who don't understand what he is suffering, it's another story Our Lady has made known in Her message.


And also it was the yellow roses that are especially endowed with the power of cure. And the petals of the yellow rose--you're to take these yellow roses home. Remove the petals and place each within tinfoil or plastic. Now when you know of a desperate case of cure that--a person very ill, send them the yellow rose and have it placed upon their body. Because that happened in Owensboro, Kentucky. Martha H., we sent the yellow rose petal and as I told many, and many that are here know it, all who know her--from Owensboro, Martha H. We sent her the yellow rose petal and she placed it upon a woman who was being prepared for death. She'd been in a coma for five days. Well, after she received the rose petal from Our Lady's sacred grounds, she awoke the next morning and through the mercy of God and the power of God, she went home and she's well today. Yet she had been prepared for death.

And of course, scientists and human man cannot understand the power of God. And these roses that are given from the sacred grounds are not given without reason. And Our Lady always told me certain people--those who don't receive them, don't misunderstand. It doesn't mean that you're less chosen. It's just that sometimes to receive a rose means that you're going to carry a heavier cross.


And also here tonight--Our Lady told me to speak--there is a young girl here. She has come in civilian clothes, Our Lady said, though she is a nun. Now her message from Our Lady is that you're not to leave your convent.

Now Our Lady wants it known that She does not want any of Her priests, the handmen of God, to leave holy Church in this crisis, or the nuns. They are to stand forth as an example of Christ. They will not understand, and they will be put to great trial in order to carry the truth. But to leave solves nothing, because you then leave the door open for the enemy of God to advance farther into holy Church. Now we are going through a trial period, but it's all in the plan of the Father, and those of well spirit have nothing to fear.


Our Lady wants it known that the days we are living through were bound to come to pass. It has been written by the prophets of old, and though man was given the choice how soon this would happen, by his very actions and his decisions and his turning away from God, the pages have turned very fast and we are at the latter part of the Apocalypse.

Now those who don't know the Apocalypse, the Revelations given by Saint John--and Saint John has appeared here with Our Lady Who also was here at that time, but it's on tape and has been written in the messages given out. His very words were that man has not taken literally and has not even bothered to explore the Revelations which he gave for these latter days to prepare us. But those with the grace of God know.


. . . suspension. I really absolutely have no feeling of being anywhere. You know, just like a suspension when I'm repeating Our Lady's words. But everything is down on tape, and when the message is printed it's taken exactly from the tape, because Our Lady gave me the work . . . [words not clear].


And we're having wonderful testimonials for holy Church of conversions and cures. All those that are familiar with the work know that the most glorious work from Heaven was--took place in Haiti. Sister Geralda--I think one of her friends are here this evening from Haiti. She was here. Yes, she's here. Well, this lady can tell you Sister Geralda . . . [gap in tape], he doesn't understand Our Lady's plan. And the Archbishop had told Sister Geralda not to say anything. But what had happened in God's will, Sister Geralda met a little crippled boy in a wheelchair, right? And she touched him with her beads and he got up and walked, too. So she couldn't contain herself and she'd forgotten the warning not to say anything. So Sister Geralda was forced to leave the convent.

Is she still with the blind lady who was given her sight? (Yes.) She hasn't been allowed to move? Well, that's her cross. I wrote to Sister Geralda--

[Someone asked a question.]

Yes, and right here, too, Father, but we don't stress these things, because we prefer more to bring forth the actual miracles from Heaven of conversion and cure, but we have had things happen here very, very strange. It's dark now and it's wet, but when hundreds and hundreds of Rosaries right in your hand have turned--it has happened to sisters, two nuns who have come, from silver color to gold immediately. It's a very shocking thing to stand and see the color change while you're holding it in your hand. We've had not only the crucifixes, but the medallions. Sometimes just between the Hail Marys the links change to a gold color, and sometimes just the Our Fathers. Nothing like uniform, always something different in each one's Rosary. And in fact, if you remember, those who are old to the Shrine here, we had a Father Gerard come here--and I've asked him to come back, though he's not of our Faith--and he received, he had his black Rosary and they turned blood red. Do you remember?

Lady--"That's right. I was there."

Veronica--Father was so frightened. But actually, what it was is that he was not quite for the Holy Father, and Our Lady had told me to tell him if you deny My Vicar, his blood will be upon your hands. Well, what had happened, he was so frightened he never came back again. I didn't mean to frighten him, I only gave him Our Lady's message. But his Rosary--it's the most startling thing; his black beads were like dried blood. But one day that Rosary completely disappeared. You'd never know I spoke to him. You know, Father Gerard, he was a very elderly man. But he was of a different church, you know, the Russian Catholic Church. And that Rosary completely disappeared. He never saw it again.

But these things we don't stress because like I say, the conversions and cures are the most important.
