Veronica--There are flashes now over the left side of the trees. The trees are lighting up, oh, very blue. There's a border outline of about--oh, a good foot of light all around the trees. It's because Our Lady and Michael now are coming from over by the trees there. Oh, Our Lady now is moving over to the right side there--our left side, our left side of the flagpole. Now Our Lady is--She's just standing and looking down.
She has on a long blue robe. The outer covering is blue, and Her gown is white. And there's a blue sash around the center of Her gown. It's very pretty; Our Lady looks very beautiful. Oh, and tonight She's wearing--oh, Her crown is all of roses! Our Lady is wearing a beautiful crown of roses.
Now Michael is coming forward. And he's bending down now; he's still holding the scale. The scale looks very golden in the light. And there are--oh, I see Michael now. He's pointing with his spear over to the other side of the flagpole. Oh, he's pointing his spear.
Oh, over on the right side, our right side, there's a horrible-looking thing. Oh! It looks like--oh, it looks like an animal; but it's got claw-like hands, very long, claw-like fingers. And it's got two ears; they're pointed. And his face--there's no face. It's like--oh, oh, it's sickening. It's like--oh, I can't describe it. It's not an elf; it's, it's horrible. And now he's--he's very small; his body looks stunted. But on his feet--they're very pointed--there's a . . . his feet look like webs, like frog's feet almost, like webbed toes.
Oh, now Michael is now placing out the scale in front of him, and Michael is saying:
MAN WALLOWS IN ERRORS
St. Michael--"Man travels the road to deep darkness. Man wallows in errors, a cesspool of errors. Confusion, deception, deceit, and lies! Why have you allowed yourselves to be led down this road?"
Veronica--Now--oh, over the flagpole, over to the left side, it's growing very light. I can barely look; it's very bright. And there's now--oh! Oh, Jesus is coming forward. Oh! Oh! Oh, He's very beautiful. It's so bright, the light, I can barely see His hair and His face.
But Jesus has on a red robe; it's tied at His neck with a golden string. Now He's placing the robe over His hand, like this, and--oh, He's opening His--the top part of His robe. Oh! Now I see there's a large heart. There's a large heart on the front part of His gown. But the heart now--there's a large sword; it's, it's, oh, it's going through His heart. And there's blood now dripping down His gown. Oh!
Now He's coming over; Jesus is coming over closer. He's just above our heads now, and He's looking down. Oh, I . . . it's . . . Oh, I feel . . . [Veronica is in great distress at the sight.] The drops are all coming down on us. Oh! . . . Oh! Now Jesus is bending down. He's placed His hand over His heart. Oh, it's His right hand, and the blood is seeping through His fingers. And Jesus is saying:
Jesus--"See, My children, what ungrateful man has chosen to do to Me. Have I suffered for you in vain? Will you ask a severe punishment upon you for your offenses against your God? Blindness, corruption, deceit! Sins more foul than since the time of Noe! Whatever shall become of you?
"My Mother has made many visits to your earth. She pleads your cause well with the Father. However, the time for your atonement has been shortened. You will all save yourselves now in the merciful drops of My Blood shed for you through generations, shed now for an ungrateful generation that has chosen to give himself to satan."
Veronica--Now Jesus is closing the robe across His chest, and He's now going backwards into the sky. And Our Lady now is coming forward. Oh! Oh, Our Lady now is going over to the right side of the flagpole, our right side. And She's motioning now up to the sky. Oh, and there are two men coming down now.
They are dressed--they have long robes on. I don't recognize them now because I can't see their faces yet. Oh, now they're coming closer. Oh, one is Saint Robert Bellarmine. He has a very large Bible in his hand, and he's bending down. And he is saying:
GOATS AND SHEEP
St. Robert Bellarmine--"Shout, my child and my children, from the rooftops! Man must now read the words of the prophets of old. He will direct his life in the light of truth, or he shall enter into a crucible of suffering. The Father will chastise those He loves. You cannot understand, as mortal, the ways of Heaven. All evil will never be triumphant. The sheep shall be separated into two camps: the goats and the sheep."
Veronica--Now Our Lady is going over to the right side of the flagpole. She's now taking from Her waist--oh, Our Lady has Her Rosary. That's why this--oh, I, I see. Our Lady said we're to wear the Rosary during Her visits here on the belt, on the belt of our gowns. And they're to be removed so they will not be lost.
Our Lady now is bending forward. She has a beautiful Rosary. It's all white, and the Our Father beads are very large. They're golden--they're beautiful, golden. Oh, they're so bright. The light is catching the Rosaries now, and they are so bright that they sparkle. Oh, and now Our Lady is bending over. She's extending the Rosary out over--oh, Our Lady wants me to touch the Rosary. Oh! Now She's coming closer. Oh . . . oh . . . oh, now I can touch it. Oh, yes! Oh. And Our Lady is kissing now the cross of Jesus--the suffering of Her Son, Our Lady said. And, oh, Our Lady says:
Our Lady--"Remember, My child, I bestow upon all who come to My sacred grounds the power to bring back and rescue from satan their brothers and sisters. You must not forget the power of prayer to the Father. Ask in the name of My Son, and He cannot refuse you.
"Continue, My children, your prayers of atonement."
"You will deliver to the world the Message from Heaven. You will permit no elaboration or additives to My words or any words from Heaven. You must not speak on your own. As Our messenger, you are not opinionated, My child, for you will only act as a voice-box for Heaven.
"There are many agents of hell loosed upon earth now, My children. They have all means at their disposal for your capture, for the capture of your soul. Recognize, My children, the faces and forces of evil about you. Do not be misguided by the agents of hell who try to take from your mind by subtle means the fallacy and error that there is not another world beyond the veil. I can assure you, My children, that this knowledge will soon be made known to them.
"The Father has great plans for restoring a proper balance to the world. My children, I repeat Myself with purpose. You must, you must retire now from a world that has been given to satan. It is a time of trial and cleansing. I have come to you many times, in many places throughout your earth, giving you directions and the armor for your survival during this greatest of battles. None will be lost unless they go of their own free will.
"Prayer, atonement, sacrifice--is this too much to ask of you in the face of what you will soon find coming upon you? I do not come to earth to fill hearts with fear, but I bring reality of what is to befall an unrepentant generation.
"There are many throughout the world, your world, that will be given a test. This is a test of faith and love; for many will be asked to give themselves to the Father as victim souls, victims to the merciful heart and love of the Father in repatriation for those souls who offend most the Father.
FLASH, GREAT HEAT
"Do not look up to the sky--the flash!"
Veronica--Oh, it's--oh, I see, I see a terrible light. It's a flash, but it's hot. Oh, it's so hot! Oh! Now I hear voices, and the people are screaming. They're frightened.
"There's no reason to be frightened. Our Lady will save you. There's no reason to be frightened. Don't run! Don't go outside; stay inside. Pray! Remain on your knees and pray!"
Our Lady--"The world before the great Chastisement will be plunged into darkness."
Veronica--Now Our Lady is coming forward. Our Lady now is bending down, and She says:
Our Lady--"It is a most frightening sight, My child, even to those who have been given the grace of knowing what lies ahead.
"There are many manifestations and many souls who will speak out for Us throughout the world. All will have heard the word of truth before the final cleansing."
Veronica--Now Our Lady is going over to the left side of the flagpole. And now She's placing both Her hands out in front of Her. The Rosary now is caught onto Her band about Her waist, the blue band.
And Our Lady now is placing Her hands out, like this. Now Her right hand is going in front of Her left hand, and--oh, there's a very bright light coming from Our Lady's hand, like this. It's coming down from the sky. It's a very bright light. Oh! It's, it's, it's beautiful! Oh, the light is so bright. It's so bright that you . . . it's . . . there's . . . I . . . Oh, Our Lady now is saying:
Our Lady--"These are the rays of hope I give to man during the coming trials. We all stand ready to guide you here, as We will guide Our beloved children throughout the world. Wear your sacramentals; do not take them from you, for they will be your armor. As the agents of hell roam the earth, they will not enter upon a soul who has armed himself with the sacramentals and graces given freely for the asking from the Father. Recognize, My children, that you are mortal, which will make the battle more strenuous."
VISION OF HELL
Veronica--Now I smell--oh, a terrible odor of, like sulphur and rot. Oh! [Veronica has difficulty breathing.] Oh!
"Our Lady, I don't want to look!"
Oh, Our Lady wants me to look. There's a deep hole. Oh, it's, it looks like a--oh, a cavern. Oh, and it's, it's very--it actually smells like rotten flesh. And now Our Lady is taking me down, down, down. Oh, my! Oh, my goodness! Oh! Oh, I see people, and they're all, as we're passing, they're reaching their hands out. Oh, oh, Our Lady says I must look. Oh!
Our Lady--"My children, you see the poor souls that cannot be rescued. Many have come here because they failed to listen to the words of the Father. They have fallen victim to the pleasures of the flesh. More souls enter daily into this terrible place of suffering because of the sins of the flesh."
Veronica--Oh! Oh! Now we're going down further! Oh! These bodies are floating--they're people. I see they're people, but they're, they're lit up like coals--they're an orange color. Oh! Oh, but the--oh, right behind them are these horrible things. Oh! Oh! Oh! Oh! They're all different, but they're horrible. Oh!
Now Our Lady is taking my hand and we're going up. We're floating up, up. It's getting much lighter now. I can see . . . I can see the sky. Oh. Oh, Our Lady now is walking over--She's not walking, She's floating over, and it's growing very dark. It's very, very, very dark. And now Our Lady is saying:
Our Lady--"My child, this color is of sorrow. The only light in the darkness is the Sacred Heart of My Son."
Veronica--Now in the center, over the flagpole, there's a large white heart. Now it's turning a very deep, deep, deep red--ah, red-orange. Oh, oh, it's, it's very large; it covers the whole sky. Now Our Lady is floating over, and She's reaching out, and She's placing Her hand over the heart.
And now She's pointing over, and She's--and the sky is becoming filled with people--many, many people. But they're walking, and they're carrying crosses on their backs. Many are wearing crowns of thorns on their heads. Our Lady says:
Our Lady--"See, My child, many who will go the way of the cross before the final cleansing."
Veronica--Oh! Oh, now Our Lady is coming very close, very close. She's--oh, Our Lady is saying:
Our Lady--"Do not sorrow, My child. It is with joy that they carry their cross for My Son. The world--your world does not know the value of suffering, My child. If they did, there would be more who would offer themselves to My Son for the mercy of the Father in the days to come. Accept all suffering with joy."
Veronica--Now--oh, over to the left side of the flagpole is Theresa. I know Theresa very well. Now Theresa is coming down by herself. No, and she's floating over by Our Lady. She's by herself, but Michael is standing next to all those people. They're all in the back with the crosses; they're holding the crosses up now, straight up and down. And they're standing there, just looking at Our Lady and Theresa. Now Theresa is coming forward, and she is saying:
St. Theresa--"Veronica, my sister, please send out the Message from Heaven in great haste. The time grows very short. The great offenses to the Sacred Heart of our beloved Jesus multiply. Therefore, the scale grows most uneven."
SKIRTS TO THE GROUND
St. Theresa--"You must hasten, my sister, to make known the sorrow of Jesus at the deportment of many of His dedicated in the houses of God. They must not follow the ways of the world, for they lead surely down the road to destruction. They must now lower their skirts to the ground. They must return to lives of piety, poverty, and chastity. Many are giving themselves to the pleasures of the world. Many have brought scandal into the House of God. Pray for them, my sister; pray much, for many souls are being misguided. Pray, my sisters and my brothers, for all the priests in the House of God. They are in need of much prayer. Only you, in your goodness of heart and love of the Father, must act now to save them.
"There are four agents from hell upon earth. One is now--"
Veronica--Oh, and Theresa is pointing over to the left, and I see St. Peter's. It's a very large church. It's very large. Oh, and I see this horrible-looking thing. This thing, he's going now into the door. He's very smug-looking. Oh, and he's now gone into a back room--in the room off the church; it's a room off the side of the church, a room. There's a lot of people gathered there. There are cardinals and bishops. I can tell by the way they're dressed.
Now one is going over, and he's counting. He's saying: "One! two! three! four! five! six!" And he's placing his hand now on the chest of the cardinal. Now as I watch--oh! Oh, I see him--he's just like . . . oh, he's like evaporating into his body; he's just going right in! Now I can't see him anymore. But I see--oh! Oh! Now I see--oh, my! Oh! Our Lady says:
Our Lady--"Yes, My child, you will have no fear in speaking out, for they must be warned."
Veronica--I see now that the one, the cardinal, is now taking off his--he has a very wide hat. Now as he's taking it off he's smiling, but as he takes it off, his hat off, he has ears like a, like a devil--these things coming out of his head like a devil! And he's holding up the number--he's holding up his hand: five and one make six. Oh! Oh! Now it's growing very dark. I can't see anything. And Our Lady says:
Our Lady--"You will continue, My child, until Jesus gives you further direction for your mission."
Veronica--Oh, Our Lady now is coming over. She's on the right side of the flagpole. Oh, She's very beautiful. She has the blue cape on and the blue sash about Her waist. And I asked, "Please, Our Lady, I can still smell that stench down there." Oh.
Our Lady--"My child, this strange odor that nauseates you will remain with you for some time, for you will accept this as part of your cross for the salvation of souls. It will bring to mind the scene constantly that I have brought you down to see.
SUFFERING NEVER WASTED
"I know, My child, that you have found the cross growing heavy, but We place great dependence and confidence upon you. The Father knows your great love for Him. Therefore, you will continue with confidence. We cannot promise you a life without suffering, for graces are not earned easily, My child, though they are given freely. However, you will follow the direction of your sister, Theresa, who has taught you her little way of gaining Heaven through suffering.
"My child, make it known that no suffering is ever wasted, for there are graces following behind these crucibles."
Veronica--Now Our Lady is raising Her Rosary, and now She is blessing: In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Our Lady said:
Our Lady--"You will continue with the prayers of atonement. You will sit down now, My child."
Veronica-- . . . and He's standing by the left side of the flagpole. Oh, He's just standing there and smiling. It's very bright about Jesus, as there's always a tremendous light. It just seems to come out from underneath His garments. It's just beautiful. Now Jesus' hair looks very long. It's parted in the center, and it hangs down to His shoulders, but it goes sort of just a little above the front of His shoulders and to the back. And Jesus is smiling. Jesus says:
Jesus--"My child, you always recognize Me, but the deceitful one has many faces. So you must be most cautious of your associations. There is no deceit in Heaven. The spirits that come to you from the sacred grounds are true. The deceitful one lies beyond the sacred grounds.
"I caution you anew: beware of an evil force that surrounds a shrine of purity. They will try to stop you with all cunning and deception, so call much to your guardians. They wish to save you from all unnecessary suffering."
Veronica--Oh, yes! I . . . it's . . . oh-h-h! Oh, now I see him, Tusazeri. Oh! When Jesus . . .
"Can I tell?"
Jesus says I can tell now. Oh, when Jesus said He is assigning one of the highest guardians of Heaven to the work, for me, I didn't see him. But now I can see him.
Oh, Tusazeri: he's very, very big. Oh! Oh, now I see he's turning around, and he's twisting, and he's becoming very transparent. Oh, he's twisting so--he's creating quite a breeze. Oh! Now he's twirling, and he's showing--oh that is actually a wisp of smoke. Oh!
Now Jesus is placing out His hand to stop him from twirling because he's making the trees blow. Jesus now is placing out His hand. And now Tusazeri has stopped twirling around, so I can recognize him. Oh! Oh, now he's very, very large. Now Jesus is saying now:
Jesus--"My child, you will recognize him. Blessed is he who does not see and believes. However, I give you this grace for the furtherance of your mission. You will explain, My child, what I have just said to you."
Veronica--Oh, Jesus means that this is the first time I saw Tusazeri. When Jesus assigned him to me a year ago, He said He was sending one of the highest guardians in Heaven to assist me in the work, but I have never seen Tusazeri until tonight. He's very large. He's almost as large as Michael.
Oh, now Michael is appearing on the right side of the flagpole. Oh, he's saying:
St. Michael--"Not quite, my child!"
Veronica--Oh, he is standing there now. Now Michael has a large bow in his hand; he has a large bow in his right hand, and he's carrying that scale still in his left hand. And the scale has a large black block on it. I don't know what the block is, but it must be the abominations that Michael speaks of.
Now over to the left now, Jesus is standing. And He's changing His robe over to His other arm. Now Tusazeri has gone back behind Jesus. He's standing behind Jesus now. They sort of float; he's just floated behind Jesus. And Our Lady is coming over, and She's--Our Lady is speaking very softly, and She says:
Our Lady--"Continue with your prayers, My children. Many are needed."
Veronica--At this time Our Lady said we are to pray the Litany in honor of Her Son. And Jesus now--I don't like to turn my back, because He's standing over by the trees. But He told me to continue to pray. All right. [The Litany of the Sacred Heart is recited.]
. . . bless the sacramentals. Now Jesus said you will extend all sacramentals, be they Rosaries or cards, all objects of God. They will be given graces: the power of conversion and cure, and manifestations to promote the work of His Mother here on earth. Therefore, you will extend now all objects of God. In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.
Now Jesus is--oh, now Jesus is coming forward. He's on the left side of the flagpole now, and He's extending His hand--oh, high above His head now, and He's making a sign of the--like His three fingers are out, and He's making the sign of the Trinity. It's squared off, like this. He's smiling. He thinks it's quite funny the way I'm explaining it, but it's hard to explain from down here. In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.
Now Jesus is going over to the left side of--our left side of the flagpole it would be, over here. And He's now coming forward a little. And I notice His robe is blowing, so it must be a little windy. He's about the center part of the flagpole now. And He's extending His hand over His head: In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.
Oh, now Jesus is floating over now. Our Lady is coming forward, too, and She's following right behind Him. He's coming over to the right side of the flagpole, and He's coming down very close. He's right over the--behind Our Lady's statue here. And now--Oh, Jesus is extending His hand high above His head: In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.
And now Jesus is looking down, and He's smiling. Now He's going to bless all of the peoples on my right side, that would be His left side down. Oh, now He's placing His hand now over here on the right side. Jesus is placing His hand before Him, and there are those rays again! There are rays--oh! Now He--oh, He's now placing His hand out straight in front of Him, and the rays are coming down now over on the left side. They're just between us now. I feel like I'm right in the middle of them now. And the rays are very strong; they're very, very bright. I can--now I can reach out, and I can feel them coming in here, but they're never hot. They're just very bright.
Oh, now Jesus is floating over with Our Lady, and He's standing there. Now He's raising His hand. Our Lady also is placing Her Rosary in front of Her, and She's going to bless everyone with Her crucifix from Her Rosary, like this: In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Now Jesus is going over to the left side of the flagpole. He's standing by the trees. And now He says:
Jesus--"Continue, My child, now. You may play your music box."
Veronica--Oh! . . . Oh! . . . Oh! . . . Oh! . . . Oh! I guess He means, Jesus means this. Oh!
He said your arms are filled with roses, but they will be given to the souls. Oh!
OFFENSES TO THE HEART OF JESUS
Our Lady told me to speak in my own words this message. Our Lady wants it known that there is a great offense to the heart of Jesus, and also She feels very sad that parents are becoming lax in the rearing of their children. Our Lady said that many children will be on the road to hell due to the fact that they have followed a way of life now--sin has become a way of life with us. Immodesty of dress, nakedness, a lack of self-respect, or the blindness to the knowledge that when they expose their bodies before others, they not only commit a sin, but their responsibility is double because they cause others to sin.
The body, Our Lady says, is the temple of the Holy Spirit. Therefore, when you despoil the body, you despoil the soul. Parents who permit indecent dress on the part of their children shall be held responsible to the Father for the fall of their children's souls. Parents who by their bad example follow the modernism trends of the world of immodesty and what is called "being in on our times." In Heaven there is no modernism, there is no humanism, there is no changing to suit man. Man must change to follow the rules of God.
Now satan has set his pattern in the world. He has a very devious plan for capturing the souls, Our Lady said. Therefore, you have to fight your own battle, with Our Lady. Your example will not be one that can be learned easily. Those who prefer to follow the modes of the world, Our Lady said, but you must remember this: when you stand for your judgment--and every single soul on this earth will have to be judged sooner or later; there's not one man in this world, Our Lady says, that can say he will live forever. The time will come, and Our Lady said many of you choose to place, put it farther from your minds, ignoring this fact. But one day your eyes will be opened, because that moment comes of decision, that moment of knowledge that you are passing over. No one dies without the knowledge of their passing over; and it is a terrible, terrible thing if you have not had, had the time and the opportunity to make restitution and prepare yourselves for this passing over.
The sins of the flesh at the present time are sending many souls into hell. Our Lady said the souls are falling into hell as numerous as your snowflakes that fall from the heavens. Therefore, parents must exercise discipline. And discipline, Our Lady said, must be exercised in the House of God. No one should have a permissive attitude, be it the laity or the clergy, when it comes to offending God. No one must cater to the whims of man or follow the leader like sheep to the slaughter, Our Lady said. No, you must follow the truth and show by example that you are of God and not of the world.
You can't be both. Our Lady said you will not be both. You cannot have this world and everything that satan makes that pampers your body and suits your worldly inclinations, and come into the Kingdom. You have to strip yourself of all these things that are injurious to the soul, but you find pleasing to the body. Our Lady said the greatest sin being committed at this time is within the state of marriage also. Our Lady says that Jesus looks into many homes and finds situations that are very hurting to His heart. Bad example to the children. And that is the major reason why the Warning will come upon man, because of impiety, unchastity and immodesty: the three terrible sins against purity of soul and purity of mind.
All has been created by satan. Your whole world system now is in the rule of satan. There is no doubt about it, whether you believe it or whether you're blind to the fact or just want to put it out of your mind, Our Lady said, the world system now has been given to satan. It is in your schools, your modes of entertainment, your means of communication; all have been infiltrated now.
BEGINNING OF THE LATTER DAYS
Of course, this was expected, for those who are not blind to the fact that we should open our hearts and listen with our ears. We are in the beginning of the latter days.
Now how soon we progress into the end, we don't know. But Our Lady referred to our days as the "XYZ" period, and we are in the "Y" period. The end, the Second Coming of Jesus, is the "Z" period. Now Our Lady could use the expression, like She does, of "alpha and omega," the beginning and the end. But She prefers to say "XYZ". Now for you who are taking photographs, and you should see a "Y" in your photograph, you'll understand that Our Lady is giving you the sign of the, that we are in the "Y" period. That means we're just about in the beginning of the final scenes. We don't say the end of the world, because there will be no end of the world. But we will have a time of trial and cleansing.
Now when this Ball of chastisement, the Ball of Redemption, hits, I can assure you Jesus told me four years ago over a billion people will die with the Chastisement, when the comet hits the earth. It will be a comet. I can assure you of this, even if you don't want to take our word, the workers for Mary, because we do have photographs. We have tremendous photographs of this coming comet, the one that will be used to chastise the world.
Now also, if you don't believe, we can take you back to the Old Testament, and it's a very short section of the Old Testament, Joel. Joel. And read the section that says the Second Coming and the signs of the times. Well, it says there, Joel stated that the world will be like a garden of pleasure before you. Well, the world is now a garden of pleasure. Man has given himself to pleasures of the flesh. Pleasure has been just, as one commentator said it only last week on the radio, man seems to be hell-bent for pleasure. He has cast everything aside in his--he's running fast to his own destruction with desire for worldliness, worldly riches, cars, everything that satisfies his, his base, debased, as the commentator said, desires. Therefore, there leaves just one thing left our Father says He can do in this respect.
WARNING AND CHASTISEMENT
Through the mercy of the Father, He'll offer you a Warning. the Warning will be given to man, and should this Warning not be effective in bringing many back to Him, He said then the Chastisement will follow close on the heels of the Warning. And now this Chastisement is tremendous. I wish I had the opportunity to show you all the photographs, the miraculous photographs that were taken here on the sacred grounds. If you ever saw the size of this Ball of Redemption, it would petrify you! It is tremendous! It's one, it will be one of the largest comets that has ever been seen by man, because it's being created--it has been created. In fact, in 1971, Jesus said that the Ball is already on its way. So you know that it takes a certain length of time before a comet reaches earth's atmosphere. But how long will all be in the will of the Father.
Though we have great hope. I, too, have great hope because Michael said to my son and I only within this past year that what was to happen in the future shall be now. It is for you to help change this by getting out the message. So do this in great haste. Well, I have great hope that we can reach the world and turn the tide the other way. But of course, what happens will--still remains in the will of the Father.
IMMODESTY IN DRESS
I don't think I was quite thorough and to the point. But actually, you must speak out in truth regardless of how it affects those who hear your voice. Because it's permissiveness that has brought so much of the evil upon the world. I must tell you that Our Lady frowns on all forms of immodesty in dress. She does not approve, Our Lady, of shorts. She does not approve of slacks. And I'll tell you why She does not approve of slacks.
Now some mothers have come and they have said to me, "Well, I would rather see my daughter in slacks than in shorts, or in these mini-skirts." But here is the thing. Now you're taking the lesser of the three evils, right? Our Lady said the road, only those--the numbers counted will be in the few who will be saved and that will enter the Kingdom--in the few. Therefore, if you want to be one of those counted, one of the few, you must make a special sacrifice and a special effort. Therefore, I assure you, I found from my own experience there are decent clothes left, even if they force you to pay more. I noticed if you buy longer clothes they try to tell you it needs more material and you have to pay more. But I think God, even for the poor families, God will send you the monies necessary even if you have to make the clothes, to dress your children decently.
You must remember, don't follow the others. I mean, even the young people, they have this business of wanting to be "in." They want to be one of the crowd. But the parent then has to stand the ground and use their discipline as a parent and not go the easy way and the way of least resistance. Or perhaps some parents have so many worldly activities that they would rather pass it off as being oh, my, or something that will pass over if their children dress in a, in immodest fashions. Well, that's not so, because one evil leads to another. The small, little evils gather and bring on a terrible loss of souls.
Because where do you draw the line? If you allow immodesty and nakedness, then that branches off into our present evil, also, of the loss of sanctity of marriage or the marriage state. We find young people living together without the benefit of marriage or the blessings of God. They all rationalize this now as, oh, we're in a different world and times. No, we are not in a different world and times. The world hasn't changed, the people have changed. They've gone to satan. That's what Our Lady says.
Now there's no condoning sin. There's no rationalization of sin. Either you will do what God says, or you will follow Lucifer. Well that, Our Lady says, makes the Father, the very thought makes Him angry because there is no half way. You, many won't have the time--they say we'll condone it for the time being. Well, they make up their minds whether they're going to live in the world, or they're going to change their mode of dress. There is not that much time left. You will do it now, Our Lady said.
SACRILEGIOUS DRESS IN CHURCH
You will not allow your children to enter into the House of God, the churches, dressed in a way that is absolutely sacrilegious. Our Lady said She abhors the manner in which parents permit their children to go to receive Her Son. It is a sign of disrespect, and the parents will be held responsible. Our Lady said, "Is there no one who will speak out and bring the truth?" Our Lady said, "Is there no one who cares that they allow these abominations to be committed?" "No," Our Lady said, "there are so few because they are weak. They have grown weak in the spirit, weak in the soul, and preferring more the approval of man than the approval of God."
You must be an example as a parent, and you must force your children, if necessary. They will not like it, I assure you, because they are surrounded by the evil. But it's a battle that if you win, you will stand on the right side of God and you will know when the time comes that your heart will not be heavy with sorrow, with regret for what might have been or what you might have done if you had only tried. I assure you, you must try now. If you allow these things to go on, if no one will fight and try to stop it, naturally the enemy gains greater ground. The only reason these fashions just go on and on like that, and the obscenities and the pornography, is because nobody is bothering to say anything about it. It's become a way of life, or they don't care.
SATAN ROAMS THE WORLD
The fact is that they just don't recognize it as sin anymore, Our Lady said, and that's why the Chastisement will be imminent. Our Lady--I must be honest in saying that Our Lady said when these things happen outside in the world, yes; but when it's now entering into the House of Her Son, no, it will not be tolerated. Satan roams throughout the world, he roams throughout the churches, he roams everywhere now. Because the final battle is on. Therefore, you must set an example. Because if you want to please God you will follow the rules of God, but if you want to accept satan as your ruler, you will go with satan and you will be taken to his kingdom. And I assure you, you will not find it a pleasant place. It is a place of torment in hell.
Now the enemy, the enemies of God, these bodies possessed by demons, as Our Lady said, have tried to delude you into thinking there is no hell or no punishment for your sins against God. Our Lady said they even delude you to the fact and try to promote a fallacy that God, being all-loving could never condemn you to a place like hell or purgatory. So they've really stopped using the word hell or purgatory. But that is the work of satan, because if you remember that the angels who disobeyed the Father, they were cast from Heaven and sent into this realm of earth which has become hell. And the fallen angels and the prince of darkness himself, who was one of the highest angels of Heaven before he was cast out by Michael and the other angels who stayed fast and obeyed God--well, they are here, and the fight is on. They want to do everything they can to take you from God, and they are really working hard. I would deduce this by the number of souls that are dying and falling into hell. It's pitiful, but it is happening.
Now many will be taken without the opportunity to receive the grace of confession and communion. Now the more, Our Lady says, you go to the confessional, the greater you will be strengthened. Don't fall for the fallacy of you do not need confession.
REPRESENTATIVES OF CHRIST
There have been placed upon earth priests, representatives of Christ. Now you will say, I've heard many people say, well, now these priests, they do this, they did that, they did this. You must remember they are human beings, subject to trial and error. But--I say but--during the time of the Consecration of the Host and in the confessional, Our Lady has used the expression "He is Jesus," regardless of what he may do in his personal life, being a human being. You pray for him, because he is still human. But you cannot deny the fact that during the Consecration of the Host, whether he stands on his head or starts doing a jig, during the Consecration the Holy Spirit will come down and use him as an instrument. And that Host is the actual Body and Blood of Jesus.
Now that cannot be denied, though the enemy will try to take this from your mind. The priest has been placed on earth as a direct representative of Christ. He has powers far greater than any man. An ordained, legally-ordained priest at the time of the Consecration of the, during the Mass and during confession, HE IS CHRIST! It's the power given by the Holy Spirit.
IMPORTANCE OF CONFESSION
And though man cannot understand this, because there are many things that you do not understand in your mortal state, Our Lady said, so therefore you must remember that satan will try to even being--entering into the House and take from you the knowledge of the reality that there is a representative of Christ on earth. Now, and I know it's, it's very heart-rending to know, to hear many of the stories I hear, but you must remember: do not stay from confession, because even if you go there, Our Lady says, to receive the blessing of the priest, it's an additional grace. And I assure you in our battle today we need every source of grace we can find.
So when you do go to the confessional, even to confess minor sins, venial sins, go anyway. Don't wait a year, because during that year you might pass on. Don't wait. I, we were taught when we were children--my age group--forty and up, thirty and up, go once a month. It's worth it, because you never know if you'll last through the year. No one knows when it is written for you to return to the Kingdom, or to pass over. And sometimes many will not have the opportunity, so you play it safe. You go anyway. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain.
I assure you, because I have too many saddened parents coming to me crying because their teenagers haven't been to Mass, they hadn't received the Sacraments, they ask me where are they? Killed in an accident, killed with drugs. And what can I say to them? What can I say? It's, it's a terrible thing. I know working for Our Lady and knowing the sorrows of the hearts of many parents, it has been a very heavy cross for me, too, because I'm a parent. And I know, and I realize, and I have a battle, too. I have five children--four boys and a girl. My struggles are as great as any parents. I've had every type of experience through Heaven's plan. I, too, have had very many heavy crosses in raising my children, so I understand. But I know for a fact that if the parents don't set some kind of an example, they'll go along with the crowds, and the crowds right now are heading into deep darkness.
WOMEN NOT TO WEAR SLACKS
Oh, now we have--we'll take the five moments because it's very important. Immodesty of dress, please. And the reason I must tell you about the slacks. During the time, if you read the Bible--Our Lady said many are not reading the Book of life and love anymore, so they won't recognize the signs of the times. In Deuteronomy, if I'm pronouncing it correctly--Our Lady spells it for me, but I can't pronounce it sometimes--you will find there the passage that states that in those days, which means in the latter days, women will--one woman will grab hold of seven men and say, "I want to eat your bread, and I want to be as you are." In other words, women's liberation. We have it exactly here now. "I want to eat your bread."
In other words, they're wearing the pants now and they don't realize, poor souls, they're deluded. Another delusion of satan. Woman now has lost a great deal of the prestige she once held in wanting to be--eat his bread and dress as he is. Now also the reason Our Lady disapproves of slacks is because they are sort of what these teenagers refer to as "sexy." But actually they're demoralizing. And they outline the body, and they're not attractive because they, they are made to emphasize the part of the body that leads to lust and corruption and puts another beholder, the eyes of the beholder into a state of sin.
And Our Lady said it's not so much what comes into your mind, but what goes out and what you take out that counts. So therefore, with the knowledge, many of the parents must approach their children. Please. And show a good example, because many of them are innocently being led down the path. But that doesn't mean that they're going to escape hell's fires.
ON THE ROAD TO HELL
I have a picture here, I have a photograph taken here of two girls. They were teenagers last summer. All who have been to my home know they have seen this picture. These two girls were arguing. They were dressed terribly immodestly. And Our Lady was to come, and I asked them please, go home and get some clothes on. They had bare navels. So I said to them, "Please, doesn't your mother tell you that this is wrong?" "Oh, no," they said. I said, "Well, how about the nuns?" They were actually from one of our own schools. "Oh, no, they don't say a thing." I said, "Well, could we please take your picture by Our Lady's statue?" We took a picture of these children. I can assure you, instead of the children, out came a demon. And you can actually see one of the girls in her hot pants falling backwards into hell with her legs up in the air. The demon has him in one hand--or her, I mean, and then he's got the other girl, the blonde girl with the white hot pants and the halter in his other hand. And everyone who has been--many, many have seen this photograph because I had it enlarged eight by ten. And I tell you it is frightening. We have an actual photograph of the demon with these two girls, actually. And it appeared--the photograph just miraculously appeared from out of nowhere, in Our Lady's will, to prove to you that this is the road that the children are following.
