Veronica--On both sides of the flagpole, there are blue streams of light--beautiful, beautiful large blue streams of light. They're coming down. They're--oh, they're very bright. Now they are heading down to the side of the statue.
Oh, Our Lady now has come over to the right side of the flagpole. She has on a beautiful white gown, and it's trimmed in gold. Now Her white mantle, though, is trimmed in gold, and with the light from the flagpole reflection of the blue, it looks almost blue about Her head. Oh!
Now She's being joined . . . coming down far from the sky in the distance, I see three figures--no, four. Michael is leading; he's carrying the balance and a large spear. And with him are two men. One is dressed in a long brown robe, and the other--oh, he's dressed very beautifully in purple and gold, and he has on a crown. Oh, it's a very large crown, highly tiered. And I know now, he's Peter. Ah, Saint Peter! Oh! Oh, now he's holding out in front of him a large Book. He's pointing to the Book.
St. Peter--"Open, my child, and read the pages in the Book of life."
Veronica--Oh, now the Book is becoming very big. It's suspended in air; it's suspended in the air. And there's a great light now coming down onto the pages of the Book. Now the pages are turning over to the left; the pages are turning. They're just like the wind's blowing them. Now the light is pointing, and it's just as though it's encased in a golden light about the Book.
Now Peter is moving over to the left side of the flagpole. Oh, he's pointing down to the Book, and he's saying:
St. Peter--"The rules in the Book of life have not been followed. Man has chosen to set upon the world a rule of satan. Man rewrites the words to satisfy his own base nature and human frailties. Man must cleanse himself by trial and penance to make atonement for the offenses against his God."
Veronica--Now standing next to him is a man. He's quite an elderly-looking man. He has a long beard, and there's a brilliant circlet of light about his head. He's holding up a medallion in his hand. Oh, I know it's Saint Benedict. He is saying:
St. Benedict--"You have not followed the rules set down by your God, or the teachings of the prophets of old. You will make a complete reversal of your ways of arrogance in the House of God. You must retire from a world that has been given to satan. You must divest yourself of all worldly desires for gain. You must live a life of sacrifice and simplicity. Only in this manner will you return to the road that leads to the Kingdom."
Veronica--Now there--the sky is becoming very dark. And in this darkness, way in the distance I see, I see a burning star. It's twirling now, the star, and it's giving off flames, fire, sparks. It's turning very fast. Oh, and it's cutting across the sky now just to the right, and in it--behind it there's a large stream of fire. Oh, it's very warm. Oh, and now the stream of fire is sending down rocks and smoke. [Veronica coughs.] Oh, the smoke is so dense! [Veronica coughs.] Oh, now it's becoming very, very dark, very dark.
Oh, voices--I hear voices crying. There seems to be confusion throughout the world. Now all I can hear is the pounding of water and the screams of people. Oh!
Now Our Lady is coming out of what looks like a dense fog, and She's bending down. She looks very sad, and She is saying:
Our Lady--"There will be no peace, there will be no salvation of the souls, unless you save yourselves and those you love in the Sacred Heart and merciful Heart of My Son."
Veronica--Now I see this large ball again. It's cutting across the sky. Our Lady is standing. She's pointing with Her hand up, and then the ball now is rolling very fast. It seems to have no direction. It's coming across the sky, and up and down and back, as though it's gone absolutely crazy. It's twirling in every direction.
Now I see a large, large rock that's being--it's falling from it now, and it's going down into the water. When it hits the water, the water is rising very high. The rock hit it as though it was like a bomb. It caused the waves to rise very, very high; and I see some ships that are carried down. This rock is sinking into what looks like an ocean. And I see three or four ships that are carried down with it. It's like a whirlpool. Oh!
Now Michael is coming forward on the right side of the flagpole. All about the flagpole and Michael now, there's a beautiful blue light. It's very, very brilliant. It lights up the whole sky. And over to the left side I see the gathering of many angels. They're all standing, but they look like they're ready to do battle. Oh!
Now Our Lady is coming forward, and She's being joined by Saint Peter and a man who looks like--oh, he's dressed very roughly in brown clothes, and he has a hood over his head. And Our Lady is bending over now, and She's whispering:
Our Lady--"This, My child, is Saul--Saul, whom you know as Paul."
Veronica--Oh, Saint Paul. Oh, now Paul is bending over, and he's saying:
St. Paul--"I speak to all the children of the world. You have been given armor and graces to rescue your brothers and sisters in this battle. Do not waste these graces, but multiply them. Disperse among the world a fine example of charity and faith."
Veronica--Now Saint Peter is coming forward, and he's taking the large crown off of his head. Now he's standing there. His hair is quite long. And he's now placing his cape that was behind him, about his head. And he's saying:
St. Peter--"All who do not cast aside the warnings given throughout your world by the Queen of Heaven will be saved. The battle that rages throughout your world is a terrible battle, my children, one in which satan has set himself and his armies to gather all those destined for the Kingdom of the Father.
"You are now fighting with the world unseen to your human eyes; therefore, you will depend much on the hidden secrets of Heaven to guide you. Do not be without your armor, found in the sacramentals given to you throughout the ages. Do not cast aside the admonitions of those who came before you, those who were given the rule by the Father, those who were set up to set up the House of God.
"Satan now walks among you; he brings many agents to set confusion and delusion throughout the world. This confusion is not only in your lay life, but is found in the House of God. You can only set the House of God and the world to right by prayer, penance--heavy penance now, and sacrifice.
"We find, we look upon a world in heavy darkness--darkness of spirit. We look into the houses of God and find darkness of spirit. Woe to evil man who receives these warnings and casts them aside! He has been given many chances to make atonement for his offenses against his God.
WHY THE CHANGES?
"I, Peter, stand before you as an epitome from Heaven, one who has been sent by the Father to bring you back to your senses before the heavy hand of the Father must cleanse your world."
Veronica--Now Michael is coming forward. He's standing next to Saint Peter. Paul, Saint Paul is also stepping forward. And now Paul is also--he's reaching over and taking from Peter a Book.
St. Paul--"What have you done to my writings? Why have they been changed to cater to man and his carnal nature?"
Veronica--Now Peter is coming forward, and he says:
St. Peter--"My children, why have you made these changes? Do you not know that you have opened the door for the entrance of the evil spirits upon you? All hell, the abyss is open wide now. The battle rages upon earth.
"You will all have been given the choice for your salvation or damnation. When you fall, you will have done thus of your own free will, preferring the temporal pleasures of earth to the eternal joys of Heaven. O my poor, straying flock, whatever shall become of you? Awaken! Pray much, and see the plan of satan."
Veronica--Now Peter is raising his hand above his head, very high, and he is saying:
St. Peter--"I bless you all, my children. In the power of the Father, I send you the grace to save yourselves and those you love in the destructive, dark days that lie ahead of you on your earth."
Veronica--Now he's going above his head, and he's making the sign of the cross: In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Now Peter is holding his hand out, and he's turning over to our left side of the flagpole, his right, and he's making the sign of the cross: In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.
Now Peter is being followed by Paul, who's carrying this large Book, the Bible, behind him. And then Peter is also--he's replacing the large crown, the tiara, about his head, upon his head.
And now the angels are coming down. Oh, there are many, many of them coming down from the sky. They're following down behind Peter. Oh, they are just beautiful! Oh, they're carrying now a large banner. Oh, they're just like children up front.
But the large banner they're carrying is beautiful. It's in white and gold and blue, and there's lettering now. It's very small, but I can read it: "FAITHFUL AND TRUE ALWAYS." Oh, and now there are crossed, golden keys upon the banner.
Oh, and now Michael is standing; he has one hand on the banner, and the other--he's holding the scale way out in front of him. And now he's talking. It's very brilliant; the light around Michael is very brilliant. And now he says:
St. Michael--"Listen well, my child, so you do not miss a most important message."
Veronica--Now he's pointing up to the sky, and written in the sky is the word "WARNING": W-A-R-N-I-N-G. Now he's--Michael is going like this, and the letters are disappearing. Now he's writing with his finger: S-O-O-N. Now he's taking his hand and pointing, and the letters now are just disappearing, evaporating. Oh!
Now Our Lady is coming forward. She has on now--Her mantle looks very deep blue; it's very beautiful. Now there's a great deal of light. The sky is becoming very bright. All the black clouds seem to be rolling back. Now Our Lady is coming forward, and She's smiling. And She's saying:
Our Lady--"My child, do not be overly concerned of the message. Much help, many arms will be sent to you, and the Father's work will be completed. Your mission upon earth will be one in which you will carry a heavy cross. Being human, We do, My child, expect you to succumb to many human feelings. However, you will rise always above this in the knowledge that Tusazeri is always by your side. Do not, in your busy day, forget to call upon your guardian. We have sent many upon earth to help Our workers.
SACRIFICE, GOOD EXAMPLE
"My child, We hear the cry of many mothers; We hear the cry of sorrowing parents. Our hearts are torn at the many abominations upon earth. Pray much; make many sacrifices. Your example will be instrumental in returning your children back to their grace.
"All parents must set a strong example of faith in the home. Your children are being subject to much error and much soul destruction outside your home. Discipline and truth must be brought to the children. The greatest responsibility for these children will be given to the parents. Guard their souls well.
"The time grows short, My child. Make great haste! Shout from the rooftops! The warning from Heaven must go throughout the world. The time grows short."
Veronica--Our Lady is coming forward. And now She's leaning over, very sadly. She's saying:
Our Lady--"My child, we must act in great haste. You must warn your Vicar: he must not leave Rome. The Seat of Peter must not be vacated, for the one of dark secrets will enter upon it. There is a plan for the removal of your Vicar. He must not leave Rome.
"Demon four, demon five to enter Rome. Watch and pray much."
DEMON FIVE ARRIVING
Veronica--I see now two figures. Oh, they're horrible looking. They look like half animal, half human. Oh, they're standing now on the right side of the flagpole. Now they're pointing way out into space. And I see St. Peter's, the cathedral. And I--they're slowly making their way to St. Peter's. Now they're standing, the two of them, right in that circle--the square that's right in front of St. Peter's.
And now one of them has reached up over his head, and he's grabbed in the air, and he's holding onto a key, a golden key. But the key now is turning from gold--it's getting black, black, and blacker. Oh, now he's taking the key and he's throwing it down onto the ground, and he's stomping on it. Oh, he's a miserable-looking thing! He's stomping on it. Oh!
Now the other creature behind him--I know it's a demon--he's picked up this black-looking key, and he's going over to the basilica there--the outside of the church, the outside--and he's standing there, and he's looking up very smugly, and he's touching the top of what looks like his head. But it's--oh, like a horrible-looking thing with points--ears, I guess. And he looks almost like an elf. And he's touching his head.
Now he's putting his hand out, and he's got in his hand a tiara. I know it looks--but it's not as brilliant and bright--like Saint Peter had on. But it's, it's a tiara. And now he's putting it on his head. Oh, how awful! How awful!
Now oh, Michael is coming over, and he has a large, very large spear in his hand, a very large spear. And now he has his bow, and he's shooting something. And the hat has been knocked right off of this demon's head--the tiara, I guess. I don't like to call it even a tiara; it's not bright and brilliant like Peter had on. It looks like made of--sort of like papier-mache, or cardboard, or something. It doesn't look real. And it's been knocked over.
And now it's growing very dark, and I can't see those two demons any longer. Oh, and now it's growing light by the flagpole, and I see letters now in the sky. It's "PENANCE": P-E-N-N-A-N-C-E. "PENANCE": P-E-N-N-A-N-C-E. And it says now: N-O-D. No, "NOW": N-O-W. But the "D" is falling underneath, and it says: "D FIVE"; "D FIVE"; "DEMON FIVE." "PENANCE NOW. DEMON FIVE." And underneath it says: "ARRIVING." "PENANCE NOW. DEMON FIVE ARRIVING."
Now Our Lady is coming forward. She's very pretty. I see now Her mantle goes back down Her shoulders and . . . very brilliant. This is the first time I've seen Our Lady's hair. I can see Her hair. It's a--oh, a light brown, almost a blonde, from the light. I can't tell; the light's very bright. And Our Lady is smiling. And now She's leaning over, and Our Lady is saying:
Our Lady--"I will be here always, My children, even unto the final battle. Then We will gloriously join you all with the setting up of the Kingdom."
Now Our Lady is placing Her hands out, like this, in front of Her, and She's saying:
GRACES IN ABUNDANCE
Our Lady--"Come to Me, all you who have sorrow, for I will dry your tears. I come to you with graces in abundance, just for the asking. These graces will give you the strength in the dark days ahead. We place upon these sacred grounds . . . "
Veronica--And Our Lady is now motioning. Oh, She's motioning with Her hand.
Our Lady--" . . . the power for the conversion of your erring children, and the power of cure through the grace of the Father. Come to Me, and you will find solace.
"My Son will soon bless all the sacramentals. Many of these sacramentals will be instrumental for the conversion and cure of souls: cure of body and cure of spirit, conversion of souls in spirit."
Veronica--Oh, now over to the right side Theresa is coming down. Oh! Oh, and she is with Saint Catherine and her three sisters. Oh, and Theresa now is--oh, it must be quite windy because her skirts are blowing, and Catherine's also. But she's holding onto her hat. The hat looks like it's going to blow off. Oh! No--oh, she's now--she's plopped it down on her head. Oh, Saint Catherine almost lost her hat.
Oh, now she's coming forward and standing by Theresa. And now they're, they're looking down at their . . . shoes? Oh, no. Our Lady is also coming over, and She's looking down now at the skirts. Oh, now Theresa is speaking very softly; I can barely hear her.
CREATIONS OF SATAN
St. Theresa--"Veronica, I see many of those new--I don't call them garments--creations of satan. Why haven't they brought them down?"
Veronica--Oh! Oh, Theresa is just shaking her head very sadly, and she's looking over to the convent. And now her sisters are also shaking their heads yes, yes. Now Theresa says:
St. Theresa--"Dire destruction will be their end. Oh, pity these poor souls! They have hardened their hearts; they close their ears.
"The Father plans a great Chastisement for the world. Our prayers of supplication rise to Heaven for more time. All the forces of Heaven work with you upon earth to save you from the abyss."
St. Theresa--"Time is of essence. You must send the warning of Heaven throughout the world. Many souls will fall into hell. Many will fall because they have no one who cares."
Veronica--Oh, now Saint Paul is coming forward, and he's standing next to Theresa.
St. Paul--"Yes, my children, you have not learned the value of prayer. You disport yourselves among worldly pleasures. Man has slowly gone back to the animal stage. His desires are not of God. His passions are of satan. And his relative . . ."
Veronica--Oh! Oh! Oh! Oh! Oh! Now I--oh, dear! Saint Paul says that many of these abominations that are destructful to human souls--these lessons are being taught by bad example, bad example of the teachers.
NUNS IN LEOTARDS
Oh, now--oh, Theresa and Saint Paul, oh, are going over to the left side of the flagpole. Now I see a large building. It looks like a gym. Oh, my goodness! I see nuns taking their habits off, and they have--oh, my goodness!--leotards. Oh, my! Now they're standing, and they're . . . they're . . . look like they're dancing, but it looks kind of ridiculous. One still has her habit on, but it's so short that it looks almost like a minidress. And Saint Paul now has crossed his hands, like this, and he's watching and he's shaking his head.
And Theresa now has turned her back, and she's motioning over to her sisters. And--oh, and Saint Catherine's following. Also, another group of nuns have come up behind Saint Catherine, and they're going also into this convent. I think it's a convent, but it's sort of a hall that's been given to--oh, my! It says: "Creative Dancing: The Liturgy in Motion." Oh, my! Oh! Oh! "Understanding Man." Oh! All these letters are appearing in the air; they're suspended in the air as these nuns are dancing.
Now there's a nun, she's in still--she's kind of older, but she's playing the piano very joyfully. And Saint Paul now--he's stepping outside, and he's motioning to the nuns, Saint Theresa and Catherine. And he's taking his hand now--he's very angry--and he's slamming the door. He slammed the door!
St. Paul--"Away with these abominations! Damnation upon them! The Father will seek justification for your destruction. Your example has set others on the road to hell. You will not be free from the destruction."
Veronica--Now Our Lady is appearing, and Theresa and Saint Catherine and the other nuns are going backwards over the tree. They're disappearing. And Our Lady is coming forward, and She looks very sad. She's holding Her hands in front of Her, and She has this large Rosary. The beads are very white, but the Our Fathers are very golden. Oh, it's very, very brilliant. And Our Lady says:
DAYS ARE COUNTED
Our Lady--"My beads of prayer, your acts of penance and atonement. You must open your hearts now to the truth. Your days are counted. The penance planned by the Father is heavy. The Ball has already been sent upon its way. Pray a constant vigilance of prayer."
Veronica--Now I see a clock. It's a very large clock. Oh, it's appearing across the whole sky. And now across the clock, on the face of the clock, like sort of a metronome, there is like a rod, a reed or something. It looks like a stick, and it's going back and forth. It's like ticking. Just as though--it sounds almost like the ticking of--I don't know, just like a bomb or something. I don't know. It's ticking: tick, tick, tick, tick, tick.
And above it now I see a large light. It seems to be coming from the trees, and hitting onto the eagle of the flagpole. And in the light--in the light, there is a sword, a very large sword in the sky. Oh, and next to the sword there is an hourglass. The hourglass is covering the whole sky. Oh, but the hourglass looks like it's filled with blood. Oh, not sand, but blood. And it's dripping onto the hourglass slowly, drop by drop. And above the hourglass now, there's appearing a large chalice, a golden chalice.
And Michael now has come over, and he has placed the sword above the chalice. The sword now is dripping blood. It's dripping from the chalice into the hourglass--from the sword into the chalice into the hourglass. The sword, the chalice, the hourglass. Oh!
Now it's getting very dark--very, very dark. Now I can't see Michael or the other things, but Our Lady is coming forward, and She is saying:
Our Lady--"I have given you your armor. I have made known to you what lies in the days ahead. Prepare yourselves now. You have been warned."
Veronica--In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Amen.
Our Lady has now bent down, and She's kissing the crucifix. Oh, mine too! Oh! And Our Lady now is putting Her cross out, like this, and She's blessing everyone, like this. And Our Lady is going over now to the left side of the flagpole--our right side, Her left side--and She's raising Her Rosary up very high. It's a beautiful Rosary. And She's blessing everyone, like this. Oh, now She's going over by the trees, and She's raising Her Rosary like this, Our Lady is. And She's going like this on the people. Now Our Lady is going over to the left side of the flagpole.
Oh, Our Lady likes the roses. Now Our Lady now is bending down. She kissed a rose. This you can have.
Ted--Oh, thank you.
Veronica--Now everyone will please sit down, because Our Lady said that Jesus will come to bless the sacramentals. Now before Jesus arrives to bless the sacramentals, Our Lady said we will honor Him by reading the litany. [Veronica leads the Litany of the Sacred Heart.]
A firm Act of Contrition, requested by Our Lady at this time, and all who will kneel now.
Oh! Oh! Oh, Jesus now is coming down. Oh! Oh, it is so bright! Oh, He's--oh, He's dressed in His beautiful red robe. It's--oh, it's beautiful! Oh, He's smiling. Now the robe--He has underneath His . . . oh, a cream-colored gown. And Jesus has on these sandals; they're brown with brown leather on them. And He's smiling. Now Jesus is shifting His cloak over onto His left hand. Now He's coming forward, and He's bending over. And He says:
Jesus--"Repeat, My child, what I am about to say.
"I bless you all as the Father blesses you all, and We dispense among you the powers of the Holy Spirit."
Veronica--Now Jesus is raising His hand over His head, and He has His hands like this. Now He's blessing in the sign of the Trinity: In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Now He's coming forward, and Jesus is looking down on this side. He's bending over. Now He's turned back, and Our Lady is now coming over behind Him. And He's looking down over on this side. And Jesus is coming over, and He says:
Jesus--"You will all receive the blessing of the Father. Any sacramentals will be your armor in the dark days ahead. All objects of God--cards, beads of prayer, and all of sacred nature--will receive the blessing from the Father. They will safeguard you in many trials in the days ahead."
Veronica--Now Jesus is coming over. He's floating over. He doesn't walk, He's floating. And He's standing now at the left side of the flagpole. And He's raising His hand high above His head, like this, and He's saying:
Jesus--"I bless you In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost."
Veronica--Now Jesus has His two--His three fingers together, and He's coming over. Now He's standing at the left side of the flagpole. And He's raising His hand high, and He's also giving the blessing, and He's looking down: In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.
Now Our Lady is extending Her Rosary very far in front of Her. Now Jesus is looking down on the people on this side. He's coming forward. Jesus is just about now over the leaves of that tree. And He's looking over and motioning to Our Lady. And Our Lady is holding the large crucifix from Her Rosary out, like that.
Now Jesus is looking forward, and He's bending over on this side. He's standing, and He's now putting His fingers together like this. And He's blessing in the sign of the Trinity: In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.
Now Jesus is coming over, and Our Lady is stepping forward. Our Lady looks quite shorter than Jesus. It might be the way She's standing forward, but She comes up to just about a little below His shoulder. And She's saying:
Our Lady--"You will now continue with the prayers so sorely needed in these days. In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Amen."
Veronica--Now Jesus--oh, Jesus has raised His hand, and Our Lady is looking over. And Jesus now is pointing His hand up to the sky. And now over there on the left side by the--oh, by the flagpole--
Jesus--"Watch, and guide your life by these words."
Veronica--"WARNING": W-A-R-N-I-N-G. "PREPARE NOW. CLEANSE YOUR SOULS OF ALL SIN, MORTAL AND VENIAL."
And then I see all the words are just floating away, like they were made of smoke. And now there's a big word "NOW": N-O-W. And it's--and Jesus now is taking His hand, and He's going like this, and it's underlining the word "NOW," like this. It's put a whole line across the word "NOW." Now it's all beginning to like evaporate.
Now Our Lady said continue with the prayers of atonement. In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Amen. [The prayers continue.]
NO LITERATURE DURING VIGIL
It's necessary that I stop this at this time. It's Our Lady's wish that no circulars or no messages of any nature be given out during the vigil. It disturbs the prayer, and Our Lady is not very happy at it. All this can be conducted after the vigil of atonement here. We do not want anyone to be giving out, whether it be other messages from other parts of the world, or circulars for coming events, because it is not in the plan of Our Lady that this be done during the vigil. So please, don't displease Our Lady by disobeying Her. She's asked me many times that only the roses be given out, and She's stipulated Scapulars, Rosaries, rose petals. But do not disturb the people who have come here for the prayers of atonement by taking their minds, distracting their minds with literature such as I have received now. It's not in the plan of Heaven, so please, do not do that. Wait until after the hours of atonement.
[Prayers and hymns continue.]
Our Lady said at this time She wants it known--I'm to explain in my own words--that we are fast approaching the time of warning, a major Warning that will be given by the Father to try to stop satan in his plan to capture the souls of the world. He's doing a pretty good job, as obviously you could see with what we are enduring this about us--the evil that every day seems to be accelerating. And that is why Our Lady says that man is fast heading towards his own destruction.
But prior to that, through the mercy of the Father, a Warning will be given. This Warning will be of a cataclystic type of nature, a cataclysm. And Our Lady said in this manner many will be brought back to the fold.
However, should this not be sufficient in changing man and the road he's on now which leads to perdition, then fast upon that there will be a major Chastisement. This will also--this major Chastisement will fall, and in between there will be what we might consider minor disasters and upheavals of nature. And then this major Chastisement will be from God, though it will be from out of the atmosphere. The instrument of God will be a comet. I'm certain of that, because Our Lady said it will be a comet.
The Chastisement will be given by the impact of this comet upon earth. And we do hope that with our prayers and our atonement and that we fast get the message out to the world that we can hold this back, so that perhaps it will not fall during our time. However, at the present time, the picture can't be given in rosy hue, as Our Lady said, because though Heaven holds back its hand just as long as the merciful Father deems it necessary, however, we are heading fast upon a major Chastisement, and I can tell you an absolute profound Warning.
This Warning has been given not in secret any longer, because many people are receiving miraculous pictures--people from all walks of life and unknown to each other, and all types of cameras--Polaroid, Kodak, anything here. Our Lady has given us actual photographs of the coming Chastisement, this Ball of Redemption, which She has been speaking of for three years here, in 1970, and prior to that, 1968, when Saint Theresa appeared to my son and I in my home. She started to tell us then to prepare for the Warning and the great Chastisement.
Now those who are scoffers will not believe, and they will be those who will be most shocked at the upcoming Warning. So now we do hope that our prayers will be instruments for reaching out and holding back the darkness, and especially ransoming souls, souls that otherwise would be lost if there isn't someone who cares enough to pray for them. Because of the lack of grace, they are unable to pray for themselves. Therefore, they need our prayers, and that's why Our Lady has established this center of atonement in New York for one major reason: a greater part of the evil comes from this area. And it fans out like a cancer. And it grows and it grows, and reaches out throughout the world until it's just like an evil spider web reaching out and strangling all those and pulling them down to perdition.
Therefore, we will continue with our prayers and acts of sacrifice and of course, penance now, because I can assure you from the photographs given and the messages given by Our Lady here, the Father plans a very heavy penance. So any penance that we do on our own now is, I assure you, very minor compared to what is in store for mankind if they do not make a complete reversal now of their ways, and make atonement to the Father. Our Father also--and Our Lady often says that the Father is not one Who punishes or some kind of an ogre who goes around punishing. But it will be in Heaven's plan--all evil is never triumphant. Evil is never triumphant. All will be turned to good. For those of well spirit, all that happens in the plan of the Father will be good. In other words, you have no fear when you are under the protection of Our Lady's mantle.
And when you are all under the protection and lose yourself and throw yourself in the heart of Jesus, because in the hearts of Jesus and Our Lady and--They are the only ones, in the Father, who can guide you and protect you in the days that lie ahead. And we are fast approaching, as I do say, I must say to you, we are fast approaching a Warning. This evening, too, Our Lady made it quite clear, and so did Saint Paul. And Peter appeared tonight with Our Lady, and when you receive the message you will hear the exact words as taken down on tape by the people who have been taping Our Lady's message this evening.
And the message that you receive is taken exactly from the tape. There's never been a change; we don't permit any changes. It will be put down on the paper exactly as the tape. And those--when it comes time to check you'll see that the tape and the photographs all bear the witness to the credibility of Our Lady's appearing here in New York and Her reasons for Her appearances throughout the world, and especially Her coming here to Bayside, which we are very happy for. And as unexpected as it is, and for the scoffers who don't believe, it's a miracle that they haven't been caught up to yet; it's a grace that they haven't received. So you pray for the scoffers and those who can't believe. It is only because the Father hasn't given them the grace yet to understand what's going on. It's like a temporary blindness.
GRACE OF GOD LED YOU TO SHRINE
That's why anyone can rescue another. It's only through the grace of God that you have been led here; it's not by accident. Those who come have been chosen from the world to come for a reason.
