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

"The beads of prayer will be the major instrument for the lessening of the Chastisement upon your country."

April 14, 1973

Eve of Palm Sunday

Our Lady--"I cannot promise you a life now filled with glory and the material. Your road will be filled with thorns. You will understand in the future that all trial was for your purification. We will send many--We will allow many to approach you to form your crucible of suffering. This is the plan of the Father as you continue as the voice-box from Heaven. We caution you to remain far from the world that has fast gone into darkness.

"I have gone throughout the world for many earth-years, crying for your understanding of the Chastisement that is soon to come upon you as an unrepentant generation. Many of My warnings are repetitious for reason. Though My voice grows weak, I carry on with strength knowing that in My struggle to reach Our children on earth We can reach but one more soul in these struggles.

"Yes, the plan for your cleansing has already been started by the Father. Many proceed in darkness and have blinded themselves to the truth. We have sent many seers throughout your world with messages from the Father. Our warnings have fallen on many deafened ears and hardened hearts. When the Chastisement comes upon you, many will see and yet not believe."


Veronica--I see far into the sky what appears to be a star. But no--it's very glowing and orange in color. As it comes closer it no longer looks like a star, but a small sun. It's spinning very fast. Oh, it's cutting a large path about the earth. The fire that comes out from behind is very intense. [Veronica coughs.] The vapors are heavy.

I see many people; they're clutching at their throats. They are unable to breathe. There's dust falling from the air; it's growing very dark. The dust and the vapor covers the light. The sky is very dark. It's daylight, but it's become like night. It's very dark, so dark now that you can't even see your hands in front of you.

The cars, the cars going through the streets . . . . But now they stop; their lights have gone off. The cars are stranded on the road. The people are leaving the cars, and they're running in every direction. Many are falling now to their knees. Oh! Oh!

Oh, the waves now are coming high. They're very high, and they're washing into the shore now. The buildings--I see buildings just--they're just being washed away. Churches are standing. I see the whole inside of an office building, but the walls are down and there's one wall just left on the side, and there's a desk up against the window. And I see--down below I can see it's at least twelve levels in the building. But the floors have fallen down, and I see some people underneath a desk. They're trapped under the wood. Oh! . . . Oh! . . . Oh! . . . Oh! [Veronica moans at the terrible sight.]

Now I see the sky, and the sun is very red and black, though. It's turning black. There's no light. Now over to the right is the moon, but the moon now is black, and it has a white rim about it. But the moon is black. Ah! . . . Ah! . . . Ah! . . . Ah!

Now Our Lady is coming forward, but She's dressed now very strangely. She's dressed all in black, like a nun, though, with a white piece about the top of Her head. She's standing there with Her head bent very low. Now She's holding out Her hand in front of Her, and in Her hand there is a heart. But there's a sword, like a knife; it's right through the heart. Our Lady is looking over, and She's saying:

Our Lady--"I am truly the Mother of Sorrows."

Veronica--Now it's growing very light. The light is growing very bright about Our Lady, so bright that Her garments don't look black anymore; they look almost a gray, a gray. Oh, now they're becoming white, oh, a beautiful white. And the shawl about Our Lady has a golden trim. Oh, now She's coming forward, and Our Lady's smiling. Our Lady says:

Our Lady--"Too many years have been wasted on earth in idle talk. Penance, atonement, and the rules of discipline have been cast aside, weakening the souls and opening the door for the entrance of the evil spirits."

Veronica--Oh! Oh, I see a terrible, cell-like-looking hole. It's very dark, and it's very, very deep. It's like looking into the ground--very deep. There are steps going down, and all along the walls--they're very hot; they're burning, like orange. The heat is terrible! And down there are--down at the bottom are horrible, horrible things! They look--they're like animals, but yet they look almost human. There are four of them. They look like--they have little ears. Oh, they're horrible looking! They're mean, and I know they're demons. There are four of them.


Now they're floating up, up, up, up. Now they're coming out here in the light. They all are looking about with a smug look of satisfaction on their faces--if you could call them faces, they're so horrible. Oh! Oh! So evil, mean! Now one is pointing over--oh, he's pointing over, and I can see St. Peter's, the cathedral. And he's saying: "It will not be long before we shall accomplish our mission." Oh! Now he's holding in his hand a red hat, a hat. He said: "I am waiting for my entrance."

He holds his hand up--oh, his hand's horrible! The fingers are long and thin, and they look like claws. There's nails coming out; they're claws. But He's looking down, and he wants me to see this. Oh, it's horrible! He has this large, red cardinal's hat in his hand. He said: "I will sit upon the throne of Peter, and I will destr-o-y the Church of God!" Oh, it's horrible! Oh, no!

Now Our Lady is coming forward, and She's placing out Her hands. Now She's looking down, and Michael has come forward. He's standing there with a bow, and Our Lady now--Michael, Michael is pulling the bow! He's going to run it through him! But Our Lady said: "No! It is not time. The purification of the world is at hand."

Now I see this horrible-looking creature. He's floating, and he's standing now beside the door of Saint Peter's. Now he's being joined by two human beings. Oh, my goodness! Oh! Oh, I see him actually . . . he's going . . . he seems like he's infusing into him! He's entering into him! Oh, how horrible! Now I can't see him, because he's standing there now, but he's a human.

Now this human, who has been infused, has across his chest two keys, two golden keys. Now next to him stands another figure. He's wearing a red hat, and he's got ropes in his hands. And now he's running the rope--but as he opens the rope, it's a snake. The rope is a snake, and it's curling about the keys. Oh, it's curling about the keys. Oh, my! Oh!

Now the keys are melting, and the keys are forming into a . . . like the . . . like the bishops wear. . . . [words not clear] like a . . . that, that cane, like, with the top. They're, they're--it's not a scepter; the crook, that looks like a large, long cane with a top on it. And around the cane is curled the snake. Oh, it's a golden snake. Our Lady said:

Our Lady--"Powers, provincials, money: destruction of the human soul for worldly gain."


Veronica--Oh! Oh! Oh! Now I am . . . Our Lady is taking me into a bedroom. Oh! I see sisters--they're nurses--in the bedroom. Oh, and there--I can see him in his bed--is the Holy Father. The nurse now has a needle, and she's rolling up now the sleeve. He has on a--it looks like a robe, the Holy Father, and she's giving him a needle in his arm. He . . . and he looks very sick. Now the needle was placed into his left arm, into his left arm. Now as the needle is placed into his left arm, Pope Paul is reaching over onto a table near his bed. He's reaching for his crucifix. He's placing it across his chest.

Oh, next to him now is Padre Pio! Next to Pope Paul! Now Padre Pio is coming down over to the left side of the flagpole. Oh, I can see him very clearly. He has on a brown garment, and it's tied; it's very loose, and it's tied about his waist. He said:

Padre Pio--"My spiritual children: hear me, for I bring you the word of truth. Demons roam in the houses of God! Prayer must chase them out! Atonement, prayer, and sacrifice! I speak out for an imprisoned Vicar."

Our Lady--"The balance is being added to the left. Therefore, when your world has reached the peak of iniquity, you will be planet struck. A glorious mystery will be sent upon earth through the merciful love of a forgiving Father for His errant children. However, this will be the final act to bring you back before the cleansing with fire.

"We do not intend to completely destroy earth as in the past, but We shall cleanse the earth by steps. Suffering shall be your vessel for cleansing. Man has allowed demons to direct his actions. Man has desecrated the temple of the Holy Spirit by succumbering to the wiles of satan. Man offends his God with his way of life.

"Man has chosen to destroy life created by the Father. Innocent souls are sent on the road to the prince of darkness. With the coming plague, many of the young will be removed before they become of the age of reasoning, held accountable by the Father for their actions. It is an act of mercy from a sorrowing Father.


"The sign of the Son of Man will appear before the great Chastisement.

"The forces of evil are gathering, My child, to stop the good work. You will commend all to the Father in His direction. Should the prayers of atonement be discontinued on these sacred grounds, the Chastisement in earth time will be hastened. Prayer, atonement, sacrifice! Starve your bodies of the demons which you have allowed to enter upon you.

"Many of Our teachers have given themselves to lust and pleasures of the flesh. This has not been hidden from the Father. And those who have been chosen from the world as leaders in the House of God shall be answerable to the Father for their false direction of the sheep.

"You will pray, My children, that many will be given the graces necessary for the salvation of their soul. Left to their own diversions and way of life, they will be lost to Lucifer."

Veronica--Our Lady said I may repeat this to you:

Our Lady--"You will be given, My children, no heavier a cross than you can carry. Think of the great graces you can accumulate with your suffering. The road to the Kingdom is a thorny road. Pick up your cross, My children, and follow My Son into the Kingdom.

"Do not be concerned, My child, of the heavy mailing. We will send great assistance in your need. I would offer My counsel that you eliminate all unnecessary entertaining. There are moments that could be used more constructively for the propagation of the Message from Heaven. I would suggest, My child, that as you grow tired you would lie down and tell your beads. Your communication with the Father in a quiet manner would afford you more peace of spirit. We understand the trials that are permitted upon you.

"There will be no need to openly defend your actions. You will never be without an explanation. The truth always shines forth. The graces for conversion and cure will be given in abundance. When the time is right, those in authority will understand.

"Do not be impatient, My child, for perhaps you will be prideful. Better that you leave all to the Father in His plan. You are an instrument of the Father, a transmitter of the Message from Heaven. Therefore, your personal life is of no concern to others. They come to find the truth of My appearances, but many come of curiosity and unbelief. However, many will be given great graces, even without the asking, because of the sacrifices and prayers of another.

"I have asked you, My child, to give the word for the purgatorial society. Many armies of Heaven shall gain members from those who come from the place of cleansing into the Kingdom. Would man know the full value of suffering and accept the will of the Father, he could expiate his exit much faster from purgatory.

"The sins of the flesh, impurity, and immodesty of fashion, have sent many into hell, claimed by Lucifer. Their example has also taken many from the road to the Kingdom. Your world is now in rule of satan. The Father allows his time so that the separation of the sheep and the goats may be accomplished.

"For those who have no knowledge of the Book of life, the Bible, you will read the direction of the prophets of old. John, Joel, and Matthew have left you words of truth and prophecy.


"Rid your homes, parents, of the obscene literature. Bring the word of God into your home, for you alone will be held with major responsibility for the fall of your children's souls. The example being shown in many homes is poor. Worldly pleasures and living have claimed many. False prophets roam the world to destroy the divinity and knowledge of My Son. The rulers of darkness run rampant throughout your world. The rulers of darkness have entered the House of God.

"Michael must be returned to the House of God. All men in the House of God must turn from their worldly ways and be an example of the living Christ. They will get down on their knees and pray! Starve their bodies of the demons which they have entered--allowed to enter upon them!

"The monuments, statues, must be returned to the House of God. Man must now turn himself from the ways of the world and retire within the guidance of the Holy Spirit. He will search for the things of God.

"Many warnings, My child, have been given to your country and the world. They have gone by unnoticed. The intellectual scientists of your decadent age have chosen to set up idols of worship. How foolish to set man before his God, when man is but a temporary pilgrim upon earth! Can you, arrogant man, prolong upon earth eternally your life? No-o-o! You will all enter, sooner or later, beyond the veil for your judgment. No man shall place himself above his God!

"There is no need, My child, to caution the world and be repetitious in My words. Now you will promote a full schedule of prayer and atonement.

"Many prodigies and manifestations from Heaven will enter upon the lives of many. Many manifestations will be given that have not been seen since the beginning of creation.

"God is; God was; and God always will be."

Veronica--Now across the sky in large letters is written by the finger: G-O-D. And now through the whole word to the "O" is: I-S.

Our Lady now is extending Her Rosary with the large crucifix and making the sign of the cross high over Her head, like this: In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Our Lady says:

Our Lady--"Continue with your prayers of atonement, My children. Many are needed, for the time grows short."

Veronica--Our Lady now extended Her hand. She's coming down very, very low. Oh, She's bending over, and Our Lady now . . . Her hand . . . extend the cross . . . . Oh! I can't repeat.

"All right. yes!"

Oh, Our Lady has now reached over and kissed the crucifix.

Oh, there is a tremendous light now. Oh, now Our Lady is smiling, and She's floating backwards very, very high up near the flagpole. It's beautiful. Oh, Our Lady has golden slippers on. They're like sandals. I can see Her feet now. And now it's growing very, very bright, but it looks like a very large cloud. And Our Lady is now going behind the cloud. Oh, She says:

Our Lady--"I am not leaving, My child; I am here with you always. But you will continue now with your prayers."


Veronica--Oh! There's a large cross in the sky now. It's a golden cross. Oh, and now--oh, Jesus is coming forward from the cross. All who are able, please kneel. Oh! Oh, He's beautiful! I never saw Him in the light like that. He's beautiful! Oh! Oh, He's smiling now, and Jesus is very now close to the flagpole. And oh, He has His hand out, but I can see His--oh, He's holding His hand out. Oh, He wants me to listen.

Jesus--"All sacramentals, objects of God--"

Veronica--Jesus says the sacramentals will be blessed at this time, because one of His dedicated plans to leave early, and He wants the sacramentals blessed. Now Jesus said all objects of God--beads, medals, cards--will be raised.

Now Jesus is raising His hand high above His head. Now He's coming over to the left side of the flagpole. And now He's blessing like this, in the sign of the Trinity, all who are on the left side. And now Jesus--oh, Our Lady now has come over by Jesus. She's standing by Him, and Our Lady is smiling. And now Jesus is raising His hand. Now He's by the flagpole on the left side--oh, very high, and He--like this--and He's making the sign of the Trinity.

Now He's going over, He's floating, like--He just floats right over, Jesus. Oh. Now He's raising His hand above His head: In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. In the sign like this, very high, like this.

And now Our Lady is also--now She has Her Rosary. The beads are very large and white. No, they're like pearls because they're pink all around the outside. In the light the beads look pink around the outside. And now Our Lady also is holding out Her Rosary. And--oh, I see. Our Lady is taking the Rosary and She's winding around--She has now in Her left hand a globe. And it has the cross upon it, and Our Lady is winding Her Rosary all about the globe. Oh!


Our Lady--"The beads of prayer will be the major instrument for the lessening of the Chastisement upon your country. The plan of the Father is for the cleansing. All must go through this crucible of suffering. However, those of well spirit shall have no fear, knowing they are under the protection of My mantle."

Veronica--Now Jesus is stepping--no, He's not stepping, He's floating. Now He's--oh, He's coming down very close behind Our Lady's statue. Oh, now He's pointing to His chest, and on His chest is a. . . oh, it's a . . . oh, it's a heart. But it's, it's very torn-looking, and it looks just real--it's a heart, and it's bleeding. And He says:

Jesus--"My blood shall cleanse your earth anew. All who come to Me in belief shall receive the chalice of My suffering."

Veronica--And now I see Our Lady standing there; She has a large golden chalice in Her hand. And She's now kneeling very sadly at Jesus' feet. And the drops are coming down into the cup of the chalice. Oh! Now also . . . now forming about Jesus' head is a crown, but it's, it's made of thorns. And Jesus is saying--now He's placing out His hands, like this, and He's saying:

Jesus--"See, My child, what ungrateful man has chosen to bring upon Me anew."

Veronica--Oh! Oh! Now the hands--Jesus' hands now are also dripping blood. Oh!

Jesus--"They crucify My Mystical Body."

Veronica--And now He's turning His hands over, and the blood is now coming down. And I notice there's a large globe now. Jesus is floating up a little. There's a large globe now where Jesus was standing. And the blood is flowing right over the globe. Oh, now it's growing very dark, and now Jesus, though, He's--here's a very brilliant white light about Jesus, but He's floating now over back beyond the flagpole. I--oh, He, the cloud now--He's standing on what looks like a cloud. It's very, very fluffy-looking. Oh! And there's Michael. Michael is now standing beside Jesus. Oh! And he's holding the balance. Now Michael is coming forward.

St. Michael--"You will all heed the counsel of the Queen of Heaven and earth. Man will offend his God no longer, or receive his just punishment!"

Veronica--Now Michael is going over to Our Lady's side. Our Lady now has floated over to the right side of the flagpole, and She's standing there just looking down. She looks very sad. And now She's pointing up to the sky.

And I see now a set of keys. And the keys, though, are draped. The keys are crossed like this, but they've got like a black drape over them. It looks like a black cloth has been placed over the keys, like in mourning. And Our Lady now--She's placing something upon Her head.

Now Our Lady's standing there, and She's holding a candle, sort of candlestick, candelabra, and it has three candles on it. And She's going down on Her knees now, Our Lady, and She's holding the three candles on the candle, like this. It's like--made like that, with a handle. And She's placing a black cloth over Her head. Our Lady looks like She's praying.

And She's--now She's rising up, and She's standing next to--they're suspended, the keys, crossed with a black cover over them. Now it's getting very dark, and I can't see Our Lady anymore. Now--oh, I can't see Her, but Our Lady is saying to me, though:

Our Lady--"My child, continue your prayers.

". . . petal to the cardinal. There will be sufficient petals to have a surplus for your own use. These petals will be used for conversion and cure for the propagation of My mission on earth."

[Prayers of atonement continue.]

Veronica--Our Lady said listen to the words of truth. [The Fatima hymn was played, which included some pious words of encouragement.]

Our Lady is standing there! Oh! Oh, Our Lady is beautiful! . . . [words not clear]. And the stars are coming out all about Our Lady in a rainbow! Oh, it's beautiful! The stars are forming a large rainbow around Our Lady! Oh, it's beautiful! Now Our Lady--the stars are now forming into a crown, and Our Lady has a very large crown on now. It's golden. Oh, it's beautiful!
